MIRPUR: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said Pakistan immediately returned India’s big-moustached pilot, Abhinandan, for we wanted to resolve issues pacifically.
“Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi abrogated Kashmir’s special status in hauteur on Aug 5, 2019. Narendra Modi in his election campaign spew hate against Pakistan. He won the election with wide margin which made him arrogant,” PM Imran Khan said while addressing at Kashmir Solidarity Meeting, Quaid-e -Azam Stadium Mirpur, in Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
The Indian PM said he was chowkidaar (watchman) of India who taught Pakistan a lesson (referring to Balakot airstrike), he said. He downed our trees in the Balakot airstrike, he maintained.
Mocking at India’s Balakot attack claim, Imran said, “I feel special pain when our trees are downed. By hitting our trees, Modi claimed that India had killed 350 Pakistanis. Then, he claimed to have downed two Pakistani fighter jets. While you all know what happened after Pulwama attack we offered them olive branch.”
He said when an election was won on the basis of hatred, it paved the way for disastrous outcome.
PM Khan said by Allah (SWT)’s grace, the way Kashmir issue was being highlighted at international level was unprecedented. It had been discussed thrice in the UNSC meetings, first time ever after 1965, he added.
“European Union Parliament for the first time condemned placing of restrictions and curfew in Kashmir and demanded the curfew be lifted. Whoever international leader I met, following the Aug 5 action, I talked to them on Kashmir issue, including Canada’s Justin Trudeau, Germany’s Angela Merkel, France’s Macron, (thrice to) Donald Trump,” he said.
He said today, the world was demanding the curfew be lifted. And the day, India would lift the curfew a sea of people would take to streets demanding Kashmir’s freedom. Next, Modi will be left with no choice but to free the valley, he added.
On Modi’s arrogant claim of defeating Pakistan in 10 days, he said let me remind you that the most powerful powers of their times Napoleon and Hitler invaded Russia claiming of victory in few weeks, but the history saw their defeat.
“Mark my words, every child of this country would fight you till his last breath if a war is waged,” he said adding that our army was also battle-hardened who believed in Allah (SWT).
He warned Modi that this would be his last mistake, if he ever tried to wage war against Pakistan.
Our prayers are with Kashmiris, he concluded.
