Prime Minister Imran highlighted the plight of eight million Kashmiris who are suffering “in an open jail” under a lockdown in India-occupied Kashmir and warned against the possible massacre of residents once the curfew is lifted.
“Disappointed” with the lack of response from the international community over the Kashmir dispute between Pakistan and India, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan questioned yesterday that how would the world community have reacted if eight million Europeans or Jews were put under siege.
The premier on ‘Mission Kashmir’ to the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, addressed the delegation of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Contact Group on the sidelines of the annual session.
“(I am) disappointed by the international community. If eight million Europeans or Jews or even eight Americans were put under siege, would the reaction have been the same? There’s no pressure yet on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to lift the siege. We’ll keep putting the pressure… What are 9,00,000 troops doing there? Once the curfew is lifted, god knows what is going to happen after that,” the PM stated.
“Modi has been committing terrorism in occupied Kashmir where children, elders among other people have been besieged from the last 52 days […] all communication services are shut down,” he went on to say, adding that freedom fighters have been termed as “terrorists”.
Khan said if Kashmiris fight for their right, “it is called terrorism and they are being oppressed because they are Muslims […] we have to awaken the international community.”
He said that under the curfew there was an imminent risk of genocide of Kashmiri Muslims and that the atrocities being witnessed in the valley were never happened in the past.The prime minister said minorities including Muslims and Christians were not safe and they were being treated as inferior citizens.
“How could Pakistan send terrorists in Kashmir as 900,000 Indian troops are deployed there?” PM Khan asked responding to India’s accusations against Pakistan of committing terrorism in the region. He further pointed out that India has been changed in the last six years and leaders with extremist mindset have taken over the control of the country.
“Any miscalculation on either side of the border can leader to severe devastation [in the South Asia] […] I am warning the world about possibility of genocide in Kashmir […] after Cuban crisis, it is the worst time that two nuclear-armed states are face-to-face,” he further added.
