Pakistan: Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has called on the world to probe ‘systematic crimes against humanity’ in Indian Occupied Kashmir.
In a video address to the U-N general assembly, Khan said the Kashmir dispute has been rightly described as a nuclear flash point. He said that India is being ruled by an extremist ideology, which believes in the ethnic cleansing of minorities, especially Muslims.
The premier said the United Nations must ensure Kashmir gets the right to self-determination as per the UN resolution. He said a recent legislation has also been put in place to alter the demographics of Kashmir. The premier said this is a war crime under the 4th Geneva Convention.
Prime Minister Imran Khan warned India against conducing any misadventure, saying it will be met by a nation that is ready to fight till the end for its freedom. He said the secularism of Gandhi and Nehru has been replaced by the dream of creating a Hindu Rashtra, by subjugating, even cleansing India’s 200 million Muslims and other minorities.
Touching upon other issues, the prime minister said Pakistan supports an Afghan-led peace process. Khan also said Pakistan continues to support a two-state solution for Palestine & Israel issue as per UN’s own resolutions.
Khan also warned against the rising trend of Islamophobia throughout the world and called upon the United Nations to play its role in combatting religious hatred.
He said Islamophobia was rising in several countries and Muslims were being targeted with impunity, mosques were being desecrated and the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was being insulted in the name of freedom of speech.
