Pakistani Prime Minister Imran has called upon the international community to act against the bigoted politics of Indian ruling party BJP.
“They (BJP) have a racist ideology. In Kashmir, they have acted according to their ideology, against their constitution, Supreme Court verdict and United Nations resolutions.” Imran Khan said while addressing the joint session of the parliament in the capital, Islamabad on Tuesday.
The prime minister informed Parliament that revoking Article 370 was a part of BJP’s election manifesto, saying their forefathers were from the RSS. The prime minister stressed that the Kashmir struggle would intensify after India’s move of abolishing Article 370.
“They (BJP) do not consider Kashmiris as their equals. They will try to crush them which will lead to a reaction which can be a Pulwama like incident. They will blame us [Pakistan] for this.” He warned.
Imran Khan feared that Indians might go for the ethnic cleansing in Kashmir with an objective to convert Muslim majority into a minority.
“I kept on telling them [BJP] after Pulwama that two nuclear-armed neighbours cannot take such risks and we should resolve our problems through dialogue.”

Prime Minister Khan warned of a conventional war between Pakistan and India in light of another Pulwama-like situation which could arise if the situation in Kashmir kept on deteriorating.
“This will be a war that no one will win and the implications will be global.”
The prime minister said this was not nuclear blackmail but he was appealing to common sense. “Is the world prepared for this? We appeal to the world that a country which is violating laws, there will be serious consequences if the world does not intervene.”
Prime Minister Imran Khan compared the BJP to the Nazi party in Germany. “Theirs is the ideology which killed Mahatma Gandhi. If the world does not act and does not uphold its own laws then we will not be responsible.”
“I want to make it clear that we will fight Kashmir’s case at every forum,” Khan said.
Khan added his party would travel to the Western capitals and inform the world about the human rights violations taking place in Indian occupied Kashmir. “It is our job to raise this issue in the world.
“When we took up government, our main priority was to address poverty in our country. We reached out to all our neighbours, because without having a semblance of normalcy in ties, we cannot attain stability and alleviate poverty,” Premier Imran Khan said.
“We want the global leadership to take note. My party and I are taking the responsibility to approach the leaders of the world and apprise them of what is happening in Kashmir. I know the Western world, and I feel like they are not sufficiently aware of what is happening in Kashmir. I will inform them that what the Indian government is doing in Kashmir and what it is doing to Muslims and minorities in India goes against everything the Western world believes in,” he said.
