Prime Minister Imran Khan Khan on Thursday called for the international community to not watch on as bystanders to the genocide in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) at the hands of Indian government.
"Will we watch another appeasement of fascism, this time in the garb of BJP government," he tweeted.
He asked the world to have the moral courage to stop the genocide from taking place.
The whole world is waiting to see what happens to oppressed Kashmiris in IOK when curfew is lifted. Does the BJP govt think by using greater military force against Kashmiris in IOK, it will stop the freedom movement? Chances are it will gain momentum.— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) August 8, 2019
The prime minister said that the entire world was looking to see what transpires in the Himalayan valley after the curfew is lifted by the Indian regime.
"Does the BJP govt think by using greater military force against Kashmiris in IOK, it will stop the freedom movement? Chances are it will gain momentum," he wrote.
What should be obvious is the int community will be witnessing the genocide of the Kashmiris in IOK. Question is: Will we watch another appeasement of fascism, this time in the garb of BJP govt, or will the int community have the moral courage to stop this from happening?— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) August 8, 2019
The government on Wednesday downgraded diplomatic ties with India and suspended bilateral trade in the backdrop of New Delhi’s illegal annexation of the disputed Jammu and Kashmir region.
Pakistan also officially asked New Delhi to withdraw its High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria from Islamabad.
Similarly, Pakistan would not send its newly-appointed envoy Moinul Haq to New Delhi, who was due to take up his new diplomatic assignment on August 16.
The decision was part of a series of measures announced by the government after civil-military leadership discussed the situation arising out of Indian decision to abrogate Article 370 of its constitution, which gave autonomy to the Himalayan region.
On Tuesday, PM Imran had vowed to take on the “racist” ideology of India’s ruling party.
“What they [BJP] did in Kashmir is in accordance with their ideology. They have a racist ideology,” the premier had said while delivering his policy statement in the joint session of parliament. “I fear that the Indian government will now [after] will resort to ethnic cleansing in Kashmir.”
