Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Wednesday that India has been fuelling insurgencies in Balochistan and is doing the same in Ladakh and trying to blame China.

The foreign minister expressed concerns over the construction of airstrips and other infrastructure in the disputed territory of Ladakh.

“China has always shown tolerance and talked about peace,” FM Qureshi said. “China is still saying that the issue can be resolved with dialogue but India continues building in the disputed region causing a serious threat to regional peace.”

He urged the world community to take notice of the situation.

The foreign minister further said that India has buried secularism and is promoting Hindutva school of thought which can be seen in Indian-Occupied Kashmir (IOK). India is trying to change the demography of the region, he added.

“India sometimes introduces controversial laws like the Citizens Amendment Act, NRC, which raises voices from within India,” he said. “India is using all these tactics to divert the world's attention from this internal crippling situation.”

He also said that in the past, India gets into trouble with Nepal and has also used Afghanistan’s land against Pakistan.
