    Pakistan a fake country, will reunite with India one day:Katju

    Pakistan is "a fake country", and one day will reunite with India along with Bangladesh, Press Council of India chairperson Justice (Retd) Markandey Katju said here today.

    He also said that whereas today an overwhelming majority of Hindus and Muslims were "communal", it was not so a century ago.

    "A fake country was created in the name of Pakistan. It is an artificially created entity by the British to make Hindus and Muslims keep fighting with each other, to stop India from becoming a powerful industrialised nation," he said, answering questions after a symposium on 'Reporting Terror: How Sensitive is the media?" here.

    "Pakistan is a fake country and one day India, Pakistan and Bangladesh will reunite. It may take 15-20 years. Those who have divided us will not easily allow us to reunite. They will still want us to keep fighting. But we will reunite in the next 15-20 years under a strong secular modern-minded government," he said.

    "Eighty per cent of Hindus and eighty per cent amongst Muslims are communal. This is the bitter truth," he said, adding that "in 1857, there was zero per cent communalism in the country. Though, there were differences between Hindus and Muslims."

    Discrimination against minorities exists in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, he added.

    Which universe this markat lives in? In the 1857 war jihaad was declared by some and that lead to some disunity amongst freedom fighters. This is well documented. Also in Awadh many sunnis did not want return to Shiite nawabi rule and did not join the rebellion. In panipat the rohillas fought for the foreign invaders on religious grounds and jihaad was declared then too.

    There are innumerable examples, communalism existed for centuries and it came with religious imperialism. Being in denial helps nobody.

    This guy makes such statements just to hog more publicity and the media obliges. No sane Indian would ever want a re-unification. I hope he also opens his mouth on matter relating to his own community, the guy is a kashmiri pandit.
