ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday warned the world to take notice of India’s ultranationalist ideology based on Nazism, otherwise things will go far worse.
Addressing two-day Refugee Summit Islamabad on 40 years of hosting Afghan refugees in Pakistan, on Monday, he said if the ideology of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not checked, it would lead to destruction and the region would become a nuclear flashpoint.
The prime minister said the Indian Prime Minister’s statement that they could destroy Pakistan in 11 days was not a responsible statement by a prime minister of a nuclear state with a huge population.

He said because of the Hindutva ideology Kashmiris had been persecuted for more than 200 days while living under a lockdown. He said under the same ideology, the Baharatya Janata Part (BJP) government passed two discriminatory nationalistic legislations, targeting 200 million Muslims in India.
“If the international community does not take notice of this situation, it will create another refugee crisis for Pakistan as Muslims of India have been asked to move to Pakistan,” he said.
Referring to the Afghan peace process, PM Imran said Pakistan had extended the best support to the Afghan peace process. He said, “We need peace in Afghanistan for development and prosperity of internally displaced people. He said the development was possible only through trade and friendly relations, which would also help us to improve our relations with Central Asian states.
The prime minister said Pakistan was celebrating 40 years of hosting refugees. He said despite economic challenges, the host Pakistan kept wonderful relations with Afghan refugees.
He said generosity had nothing to do with the bank balance. “This hosting is linked with Hijrat-e-Madina. He said our Prophet Muhammed (SAWW) believed in uniting human beings.
The prime minister said Islamophobia came after 9/11 because terrorism and Islam was equated, which led to sufferings of refugees across the world. He said every society and religion had every type of people.
