ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that India’s racially extremist ideology of Hindutva posed a threat to peace in the region and the world.
“India has been taken over by a racially extremist exclusive ideology Hindutva that takes strength from RSS, which was born in 1925 and its inspiration was from Nazi party of Germany,” PM Imran Khan said In an interview with German DW television.
The prime minister said India, a nuclear armed country of 1.3 billion people, was in the hands of extremists. Not only the people of India were going to suffer, but the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir were also suffering, he said.
Imran Khan also mentioned the current situation in India, including the ongoing riots and demonstrations after the introduction of a new citizenship law by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government.
To a question, he said Pakistan invited the world and whoever wanted to visit to come and see the Pakistani part of Kashmir, and then they go and see the Indian side of Kashmir.
On Jan 16, PM Imran Khan chaired a high-level meeting that reviewed all aspects of the situation in Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K).
The meeting was attended by Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Special Assistant to PM Dr Moeed Yousaf, DG ISI Lt Gen Faiz Hamid, Foreign Secretary Sohail Mehmood and other senior military and civilian officials.
The participants condemned India’s inhuman lockdown of 8 million Kashmiris for over 165 days, the egregious human rights violations of Kashmiris by over 900,000 Indian occupation forces, and the threat posed to peace and security by the BJP government’s belligerent rhetoric and aggressive actions on the ground.
It was underlined that the RSS-inspired BJP government’s ‘Hindutva’ mindset, with its anti-Muslim and anti-Kashmiri obsession, was responsible for creating a perilous situation for regional peace and stability.
The participants welcomed the consideration of Jammu & Kashmir in the Security Council on 15 January 2020 and noted that it reflected the international community’s recognition of the seriousness of the situation.
It was also decided to observe the Kashmir Solidarity Day on 5 February 2020 in a befitting manner.
The prime minister reaffirmed Pakistan’s unshakable political, diplomatic and moral support and solidarity with the Kashmiri people until the realization of their inalienable right to self-determination.
