Modi’s belligerent Hindutva policy buried concept of secularism in India: FM
Minorities are being treated with discrimination in India and farmers are also protesting for their rights
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says India has buried the concept of secularism owing to its Hindutva policy.
He said Pakistan has put forth a dossier before the world community, exposing the Indian terrorism with evidence. He said Pakistan will continue to raise the Kashmir issue at every forum and the movement of self-determination will succeed.
The Foreign Minister said we have also written letters to the UN Secretary General and Human Rights Commissioner in Geneva, demanding free and fair trial to all the political prisoners in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and their release at the earliest.
Referring to the PDM’s rally in Bahawalpur, the Foreign Minister questioned in whose era the funds of South Punjab were spent unfairly somewhere else.
He said PTI has taken two big decisions in its tenure regarding South Punjab; one was the devolution of power to the grassroots level and the second was allocating special funds for development and construction of South Punjab.
In a statement on Monday, he said the international media is openly criticizing India. He said the minorities are being treated in discrimination in India and farmers are also protesting there. While on the other hand In India, four more farmers died over the past 24 hours, raising the toll to sixty during the farmers’ protest against anti-farmers laws passed by Modi government. The farmers leaders Gurnam Singh Charuni, Rakesh Tikait and others said that they will not go back untill three farm laws and a law for MSP are repealed. Earlier In India, Chief Minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh has strongly criticized the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for running false propaganda on the law and order situation just to delay the upcoming local bodies’ elections in the state.Addressing the people in Mohali, he said the BJP is afraid of failure in elections as the Party has lost popularity because of ‘black’ farm laws. Trashing the BJP’s claims that the central government has accepted the demands of farmers, he explained that had their demands been conceded, the farmers would not have continued their protest.
