Political career

In the 2002 general elections, as a candidate with the Pakistan Muslim League (Q) (PML-Q)—the party of President Pervez Musharraf—Khar was elected to the National Assembly, representing the NA-177 Muzaffargarh-II constituency in Punjab, a position her father had held previously, but a new law requiring all candidates to hold a university degree meant he could not run that year. The Guardian wrote, “In deference to local sensibilities about the place of women, her landlord father Noor addressed rallies and glad-handed voters; Hina stayed largely at home, with not even her photo appearing on the posters.” After the PML-Q denied her a ticket for re-election in 2008, she joined the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and was elected for a second time. The PPP won the majority of the votes and formed an alliance with the Pakistan Muslim League (N). They nominated and elected Yousaf Raza Gillani as Prime Minister. Between 2004 and 2007 Khar was Minister of State for Economic Affairs (Pakistan)|Minister of State for Economic Affairs. She served as Minister of State for Finance and Economic Affairs in the cabinet of Gillani between 2008 and 2011.

  1. Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar late on Wednesday night suggested that she and her Indian counterpart Salman Khurshid hold talks to defuse the tension building between the neighbours over ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC).
  2. "Instead of issuing belligerent statements by the military and political leaders from across the border and ratcheting up tension, it is advisable for the two countries to discuss all concerns related to the LoC with a view to reinforcing respect for the ceasefire, may be at the level of the foreign ministers,"Rhetoric and ratcheting up of tensions is certainly counter-productive," she said.The remarks came as India and Pakistan agreed to de-escalate the situation along LoC and the Director General of Military Operations of the two countries spoke to each other.
  3. In New York yesterday, Ms Khar had accused India of "war mongering" after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said there "cannot be business as usual" with Pakistan following the brutal killing of the two Indian soldiers, Lance Naik Hemraj Singh and Lance Naik Sudhakar Singh. A string of violations of the ceasefire along the 742-km LoC over the past 10 days have left two Indian soldiers dead. Pakistan says three of its soldiers have been killed by Indian troops.Ms Khar said Pakistan and India were important countries of South Asia and should "demonstrate requisite responsibility for ensuring peace by addressing all concerns through dialogue".
  4. Pakistan, she said, was "saddened and disappointed at the continued negative statements emanating from India, both from the media as well as certain Indian leaders".[7]Hina Rabbani Khar offers talks with India to defuse tension

Resolving Kashmir

Pakistan cannot “conquer Kashmir through war”, and the Kashmir-issue needs mutual trust with India, she said. She added that Pakistani children were indoctrinated in an atmosphere of hatred - "our national identity is to hate someone”, causing the hostility with India and Afghanistan. “I believe that Pakistan cannot conquer Kashmir through war and if we cannot do that, the option we are left with is dialogue, and dialogue can only proceed with a partner with which we have normal relations and a certain level of mutual trust” .[8] Resolving kashmir hina rabbani khar
