Bukhari, a leader of the ruling Pakistan People's Party, made the remarks while addressing a rally near the Line of Control yesterday to observe a "Black Day" against the alleged Indian occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.
He reiterated the pledge of late PPP founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto that Pakistan would fight for a thousand years for the liberation of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Black Day was observed across Pakistan-occupied Kashmir through public processions and rallies in all major cities and towns, including the capital Muzaffarabad.
Protesters from all major political parties also staged sit-ins in different sectors of LoC. The PoK chapter of the PPP organised a rally from Muzaffarabad to Chakothi town that was led by Bukhari.
Meanwhile, militant commanders based in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir have vowed to step up efforts to "liberate" Jammu and Kashmir, saying thousands of people are prepared to cross the Line of Control to help their "oppressed brethren" in their campaign to achieve independence.
Maulana Abdul Wahid Kashmiri, the head of the banned Lashker-e-Taiba in PoK, said militant groups were weighing the international community's response towards the situation in Jammu and Kashmir
