Multan, Pakistan: After promising to take the province of Kashmir back from India, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, leader of Pakistan People’s Party(PPP), said that he would acquire United States, as it too has historically belonged to Pakistan.
Bilawal, aged 2, made this remark while drinking milk in a press conference in Multan.
The comment drew flak from his supporters present at the event, with many insisting him to first focus on taking India back from India.
Due to his strong skills and swashbuckling style, Bilawal has often been hailed as the Rahul Gandhi of Pakistan in political circles.
Meanwhile in India, actress Alia Bhatt took to Twitter to express her outrage at Bilawal’s comments. “How dare you say this! You can take Lahore if you want, but we will never give Kashmir!” read her post on the microblogging website.
Arnab Dontgoswami, the host of a popular Indian news channel, has conveyed his desire to interview Bilawal Bhutto, stating that the nation already knew, but still wants to know again. “Before Kashmir, I dare him to take this interview with me. I double dare him, I triple dare him, I…,” Arnab was heard talking to a Faking News reporter, before the reporter ran away.
After hearing Bhutto’s statement, Hafiz Saeed – India’s most wanted terrorist residing in Pakistan has allegedly filed for unemployment under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment scheme. He said that his objective as chief terrorist since 10 years has been achieved by Bhutto in just one day.
US President Barack Obama, when informed of Bilawal’s statement, chose not to respond to it.
