Imran Khan criticized India’s repeal of Section 370 and the number of troops in the region

Washington: Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said there would be no lasting peace in South Asia until the Jammu and Kashmir dispute was resolved. In a 25-minute speech delivered virtually to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Mr. Khan focused on India, its treatment of minorities and the conflict in Jammu and Kashmir. He used combative words to describe Pakistan’s stance against any hypothetical Indian aggression.

“There will be no lasting peace and stability in South Asia until the Jammu and Kashmir dispute is resolved on the basis of international legitimacy. Kashmir has rightly been described as a nuclear flashpoint, ”Khan said. “The Security Council must prevent a catastrophic conflict and ensure the implementation of its own resolutions, as it has done in the case of East Timor,” he said.

“I want to make it clear that any attempt to aggress the fascist and totalitarian Indian government led by RSS against Pakistan will be greeted by a nation that will fight for its freedom to the end,” Khan said.

Mr Khan criticized India’s repeal of Section 370 and the number of troops in the region. He said the Indian government was trying to change the demographics of the state in order “to affect the outcome of a plebiscite envisaged in UN Security Council resolutions.”

He touched on topics he spoke about last year, including illicit financial flows out of developing countries, climate change and the rise of Islamophobia around the world.

He said that the Indian state sponsored Islamophobia because of the SSR ideology.

“The founding fathers of the RSS were inspired by the Nazis and adopted their concepts of racial purity and supremacy. While hatred of the Nazis was directed against Jews, the RSS directs it towards Muslims and, to a lesser extent, towards Christians. They believe that India is exclusively for Hindus and that others are not equal citizens. The secularism of Gandhi and Nehru has been replaced by the dream of creating a Hindu rashtra… ”declared Mr. Khan. He referred to the fact that Muslims were killed in 2002 in Gujarat when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the state prime minister.

Khan said Pakistan had shown “maximum restraint” despite India’s actions on the Line of Control (LoC) and had always called for a peaceful solution. The point is, Pakistan has been known for decades to undermine peace in the Kashmir region by sponsoring cross-border terrorism in the region.
