Don’t be silent on Kashmiris cleansing in IoK: PM to world
PM Imran condemns unprovoked Indian firing along LoC
UNITED NATIONS/ ISLAMABAD
The UN Security Council (UNSC) is to hold closed-door consultations on the Kashmir developments on Friday at the request of China, a diplomat at the Security Council said on Thursday. The diplomat said that China’s request for the meeting was made in a letter and came up during the Council’s informal consultations on Wednesday. The format of the meeting as a closed-door consultation would preclude Pakistan participating in it, the diplomat said.
The last time there was a full Security Council meeting on the Himalayan region was in 1965.
Friday’s discussion is not considered a full security meeting but rather referred to as closed door consultations, which are becoming increasingly more common, diplomats said. As a closed-door meeting, the consultation’s proceedings would be secret, without being broadcast or accessible to reporters.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan cautioned the international community of ‘severe repercussion and reactions’ if the world remains silent over the expected genocide of Muslims in occupied Kashmir. In a tweet on Thursday, the prime minister lashed out at the Indian government for the recent situation in the held territory and said 12 days of curfew, presence of extra troops in an already heavily militarized occupied territory, sending in of RSS goons, complete communication blackout; with the example of Modi’s earlier ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Gujarat.
Referring to Srebrenica genocide in July 1995, in which more than 8,000 Bosniaks were killed, the PM asked: “Will world silently witness another Srebrenica-type massacre & ethnic cleansing of Muslims in IOK?” The prime minister said: “I want to warn [the] international community if it allows this to happen, it will have severe repercussions & reactions in the Muslim world setting off radicalisation & cycles of violence.”
A day earlier on Pakistan’s Independence Day, Prime Minister Khan termed the recent illegal moves in occupied Kashmir by Indian Prime Minister Narendra as his ‘strategic blunder’.
Addressing the special session of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly on Wednesday, PM Khan expressed solidarity with Kashmiri brethren during the ongoing crisis and affirmed to become the ambassador of Kashmir in the world.
Since his childhood, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been a member of Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) which adopted its ideology of racial supremacy from Hitler’s Nazi party, PM Khan said. “If we grasp their [BJP] ideology then various issues, including Kashmir, will be understood.”
Moreover, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday condemned the unprovoked Indian firing along the Line of Control (LoC). PM Khan prayed for higher ranks in Jannah for the soldiers who embraced martyrdom due to Indian firing. Earlier in the day, three Pakistani soldiers embraced martyrdom as Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing across the Line of Control (LoC).
Prime Minister Imran Khan has said the Muslim community in occupied Kashmir is facing grave danger of ethnic cleansing as the heavily militarized territory witnessed 12 days of curfew and complete communication blackout.
In a tweet, the Prime Minister alerted the world about the presence of extra troops and sending in of the goons of RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) by Indian prime minister Narendra Modi.
He said Narendra Modi is responsible for earlier genocide of the Muslims in Gujarat.
The Prime Minister said he wants to warn the international community that if it allows this to happen, it will have severe repercussions and reactions in the Muslim world setting off radicalisation and cycles of violence. He urged the world not to act as silent spectator to ethnic cleansing of Kashmiris by Indian forces.
