ISLAMABAD: Ostensibly disgruntled Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said the world valued the market of more than one billion people more than human lives in the occupied Kashmir.
“About one hundred thousand Kashmiris have been martyred in past 30 years,” Imran Khan rued over the bloodshed by Indian forces while addressing a gathering of people in Islamabad. An event of formation of human chain led by the PM was held at Convention Centre to D-Chowk in the capital to express solidarity with the people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The prime minister said the India forces had locked down 8 million population of the valley under curfew for over two months.
“International media flashes headlines on protests in Hong Kong, but Kashmir is not given as much coverage,” he said highlighting the double-standard of the world. He said Hong Kong was part of China, while Kashmir was a disputed territory according to the UN.
He said women, children, old and unwell people all had been confined to their houses.
“The world only sees that India is a country of more than one billion people so they could make money in it, but human lives have no value in front of this for them.”
Modi has played his last trick by illegally repealing the autonomous status of the occupied territory, but as soon as the curfew would be lifted, Kashmiris will launch an unprecedented protest against India, he said.
“One can only make effort, while success is bestowed upon by Allah (SWT). We will make every effort for the people of Kashmir. Insha Allah! Our campaign will become a sea,” he said. PM Khan also said that gradually, the world leaders had started understanding the Kashmir dispute, after he personally met them one by one at the recent UNGA session.
