Pakistan fears the "worst-ever human tragedy" will be witnessed in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) as New Delhi pursues its nefarious agenda of changing the occupied region's demography.

This was stated by Prime Minister Imran Khan during a meeting with Human Rights Watch (HRW) Executive Director Kenneth Roth on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session in New York.

PM Imran apprised the director about India's brutalities against the people of occupied Kashmir and said the world must act to end the ceaseless human rights violations in IOK.

He briefed the HRW official on India’s plan to change the demography of occupied Kashmir and said more than 15,000 Kashmiris have been arrested by Indian forces.

Modi made ‘historic blunder’ in IOK: PM

In a separate meeting with the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, PM Imran said Pakistan wants to focus on developing itself and lifting its people out of poverty but the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)-backed Modi government was following an agenda rooted in racial supremacy.

The premier said racism is often rooted in arrogance and arrogance can lead to people making mistakes – referring to Modi’s decision to revoke the special status of IOK.

He said that India’s illegal annexation of the occupied valley will affect the entire world, particularly the Muslim community, adding that the international community does not realise the severity of the situation.

The premier reiterated his support for peace talks between the Afghan Taliban and the United States to resume.

"The world should not fear that a peace deal in Afghanistan would take us back to 2001. Peace is the most important goal and we should all pursue it," he said.

PM Imran also met his Norwegian counterpart on the sidelines of the UNGA and discussed matters of mutual interest, including bilateral, regional and multilateral issues.


The premier briefed Prime Minister Erna Solberg about the brutalities faced by the people of Kashmir.

He warned the prime minister of New Delhi’s attempt to stage a false flag operation to further escalate tensions, while rubbishing Indian claims that terrorists from Afghanistan have entered IOK and India’s southern regions.

He urged the international community to take a stand against the Indian armed forces to alleviate the suffering of the Kashmiri people and to resolve the Kashmir dispute peacefully.

The two leaders also discussed the Afghanistan issue and the desire to strengthen bilateral and investment ties.
