ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday warned global community of India’s false flag operation to divert attention from human rights violations in Indian occupied Kashmir.
In a tweet, PM Imran said Indian media’s claims about terrorists’ entering from Afghanistan into Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IoJK) were mere a trick to divert attention from India’s ethnic cleansing & genocide agenda in Kashmir.
“We are hearing Indian media claims that some terrorists from Afghanistan have entered IOJK for terrorist activities, while others have entered India’s southern regions. These claims are predictable to divert attention from India’s ethnic cleansing & genocide agenda in IOJK,” he said.
“I want to warn the international community that the Indian leadership will in all probability attempt a false flag operation to divert attention from its massive human rights violations and the unleashing of a reign of terror in IOJK,” he added.
Muslim member of the House of Lords, Lord Nazir has thanked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for refusing visas to those Indian army generals and brigadiers who had served as intelligence officers in Kashmir.
“Thank you @JustinTrudeau for your brave stance,” Lord Nazir, who is also President All Parties Parliamentary Group on Kashmir, tweeted.
According to an Indian news channel, two retired lieutenant generals, three brigadiers and two senior officers of the intelligence bureau of India had been denied visas on ground that their organisations were engaged in violence. New Delhi is furious over this report.
The Indian government on August 5 repealed the special status given to the occupied Kashmir under the constitution’s Article 370 and Section 35 A, and bifurcated the region into two Union Territories – Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. The arbitrary move is feared to spark unrest in the disputed territory.
The decades-old conflict of Kashmir has resulted in horrific wars and continuous border tensions between Pakistan and India. The issue has strained the bilateral relations between the nuclear-armed neighbours as it is at core of their foreign and security policies.
