Indian gov’t ‘sponsors’ Islamophobia, PM Imran Khan tells UN
Addressing the UN General Assembly (UNGA) on Friday, Khan said, “Islamophobia prevails in India today and threatens the nearly 200 million Muslims who live there.”
The Indian delegation walked out on the occasion of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s address to the UN General Assembly.
“There will be no durable peace and stability in South Asia until the Jammu and Kashmir dispute is resolved on the basis of international legitimacy,” Khan said, calling for a peaceful solution and a rescinding of India’s August 5 move.
The junior diplomat of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs was present in the UN General Assembly on the occasion of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech, but he had already walked out of the hall as he was aware of the situation in Occupied Kashmir.
In a recorded speech to the UNGA, which is being held virtually amid the coronavirus pandemic, Khan said, “The one country in the world today where, I am sad to say, the state sponsors Islamophobia, is India. The reason behind this is RSS ideology that unfortunately rules India today”.
