Issues can’t be resolved through hatred, intimidation: Sidhu
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Congress leader and former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu said on Thursday that the issue of terrorism would be resolved through peace.
Speaking to the journalists over the ongoing tensions between Pakistan and India, Navjot Singh Sidhu showed the mirror to Narendra Modi-led government and said, “We will not get better if think bad for others.”
Sidhu said the issue of terrorism would be resolved through peace only. “We need to resolve problems through talks,” he said.
Sidhu – who had arrived in Pakistan to attend Kartarpur Border Corridor ceremony in November last year – said issues were not resolved through creating hatred and intimidation.
However, Sidhu took his twitter and admired the goodwill gesture of PM Imran Khan for releasing Abhinandan and said, “@ImranKhanPTI Every noble act makes a way for itself… your goodwill gesture is ‘a cup of joy’ for a billion people, a nation rejoices…
I am overjoyed for his parents and loved ones.”

PM announces to release Indian pilot as goodwill gesture tomorrow
Earlier today, Prime Minister Imran Khan announced to release Indian pilot Abhinandan as goodwill gesture tomorrow.
Giving the policy statement during a joint session of the Parliament on Thursday, he said that Pakistan is a peace-loving country and will take each step for establishing peace.
“After winning the elections, I had decided to resolve all issues through dialogues. Unluckily, war mania continued to increase in India. No autonomous country allows the violation of its border,” he declared.
