ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday warned the people of Azad Jammu and Kashmir to not to cross the Line of Control to support the Kashmiri struggle or else they would be playing into the hands of the Indian narrative.
In a tweet, Imran Khan said such an act would provide India an excuse to increase violent oppression of Kashmiris in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK) and attack across the LoC.
“I understand the anguish of the Kashmiris in AJK seeing their fellow Kashmiris in IOJK under an inhumane curfew for over two months.
“But any one crossing the LoC from AJK to provide humanitarian aid or support for Kashmiri struggle will play into the hands of the Indian narrative – a narrative that tries to divert from the indigenous Kashmiris’ struggle against brutal Indian Occupation by trying to label it as ‘Islamic terrorism’ being driven by Pakistan. It will give India an excuse to increase violent oppression of Kashmiris in IOJK & attack across LoC.”
On Sept 25, Prime Minister Imran Khan had said that there was a danger of bloodshed in Occupied Kashmir and the world must act to avert this.
Interacting with the editorial board of The New York Times, he had said the main purpose of his visit to the UN headquarters was to apprise the world about human rights violations in the Occupied Kashmir due to India’s illegal and unilateral occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.
Regarding Afghan peace process, the prime minister said he wanted peace in Afghanistan which was in the best interest of Pakistan.
Imran Khan had said Pakistan wanted to lift its people out of poverty and focus on building a peaceful neighbourhood but the RSS-backed Modi government was following an agenda rooted in racial supremacy.
