Srinagar: Criticising British High Commissioner to India Sir Rob Young for his statement asking Islamabad to stop cross-border terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, a pro-Pakistan militant outfit today said the Kashmir problem was the creation of British imperialist rule. 'We want to remind Young that Kashmir issue is the creation of British imperialist rule in the subcontinent and history will never forgive the United Kingdom for this. Had the Britishers not dealt with the partition on partisan lines, there would have been no Kashmir issue,' self styled field commander of the Jamiat-ul-Mujahideen, Malik Tahir Nawaz, said in a statement. He said the British High Commissioner's statement would make 'no difference in the ongoing jehad in Jammu and Kashmir.'
