NEW DELHI – Claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was responsible for killing "hundreds of civilians" in Jammu and Kashmir and Gujarat, chief of Pakistani hardline party Jamaat-e-Islami Siraj-ul-Haq announced a award of Rs 1 billion to anyone who arrested the PM.

Indian Prime Minister: Narendra Modi

According to a report in The Hindustan Times, Haq was addressing a rally in Rawalakot in Pakistan. "I want to say to Modi that you and your agents cannot arrest Syed Salahuddin (Hizbul Mujahideen chief) … And you say whoever will arrest Salahuddin, we will give him Rs 50 crore. I too say that whoever arrests Modi, we will give him Rs 1 arab (Rs 1 billion)," the report quoted Haq as saying.

Haq added that the government of India was a 'hurdle' for Kashmiris who want 'independence'. Adding that Kashmir is part of Pakistan, Haq said Pakistan's relation with India depends on Kashmir's freedom.

While stating that India can never be a friend of Pakistan, the Jamaat-e-Islami chief also lambasted leaders of Pakistan for being 'deaf, dumb and blind to the sacrifices of Kashmiris'.

"As long as the issue of Kashmir is not settled, whoever talks of friendship with Hindustan, he is a traitor to Pakistan and the Kashmiris. If you want the friendship of Hindustan, then go to Hindustan, to Delhi and to Mumbai, there is no place for you in Islamabad."

Sirajul Haq was a member of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly and was recently elected as Senator. However, only ARY News has reported this speech so far.

Pakistan's media regulatory authorities had last year suspended ARY News for 15 days for defaming the judiciary in October 2014, Zee News report said.
