Protest march to be held in London against Indian atrocities in Kashmir: FM Qureshi
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Saturday said a mammoth protest march will be held against Indian atrocities in the Occupied Jammu and Kashmir on September 3 (Tuesday) from Hyde Park to the High Commission of India in London.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the protest would be participated by members of the House of Lords, British parliament and other politicians of the UK.
“The world is witnessing today that India is negating the political philosophy of Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi, while Indian politics is getting overwhelmed by the RSS ideology,” the FM said while addressing a public gathering of Hindus in Umerkot, Tharparkar.
He said in Pakistan we considered religious minorities such as Christians, Hindus and Sikhs just like any other Muslim.
“I would like to tell the Hindu community that wherever they lived or any other minority community member, we will protect you and sanctity of your houses and women,” he said.
The foreign minister said if anybody cast an evil eye on Hindus, every Muslim man and child will protect their lives and properties.
On the other hand, he said, India violated human rights, imposed communication blackout and did not allow the UN observers in the valley.
“If any member of Human Rights wants to visit the Azad Kashmr, we would allow them to visit any place in the Himalayan territory,” he said asking if Indian PM Narendra Modi would allow them the same in the occupied territory.
FM Qureshi said Imran Khan will raise the Kashmir dispute at the UNGA session on September 27.
Prime Minister Imran Khan has warned that ethnic cleansing of Muslims in India should send alarm bells to the entire world.
Referring to India’s stripping millions of residents in Assam of their citizenship, PM Imran Khan in a tweet said illegal annexation of Kashmir was part of a wider policy to target the Muslim populace in the country.
The Indian government has stripped about 1.9 million residents of Assam state of their citizenship at the strike of a pen on Saturday.
As per media reports, under the National Register of Citizens (NRC) people, who could prove they had arrived in India a day before Bangladesh had declared independence on March 24, 1971, were listed as citizens, while the people who could not get a place in the list have been given 120 days to appeal against their exclusion.
