ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has strongly condemned the unjust demolition of ancient Bilal Mosque in BJP-ruled Haryana by Indian authorities in consort with pliant judiciary under BJP-RSS regime.
In a statement, Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar Ahmad said the Hindutva driven BJP-RSS combined perpetual targeting of Muslims and their places of worship is indelible blot on the so-called “largest democracy”.
He said targeting of Muslims, their religious places and cultural heritage continues unabated in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and in India.
The Foreign Office spokesperson said Pakistan continued to urge international community, particularly the United Nations, OIC and relevant human rights organizations to hold India accountable for systemic and blatant human rights violations of minorities, particularly Muslims.
He said we call upon India to ensure safety, security and well-being of its minorities, including Muslims and their places of worship and cultural sites.
