‘Nankana incident’ & Indian propaganda

161

Opening up the Kartarpur Corridor for Sikh pilgrims to travel across the border was the clear manifestation of Prime Minister Imran Khan-led government’s commitment to protecting the rights of minorities in Pakistan. Contrary to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi government’s policy of oppression and suppression in Indian-Occupied Kashmir (IOK), as the brutal Indian forces have made life miserable for the dwellers of the scenic valley.
However, Indian media instead to highlight the ongoing state barbarism and brutalities of Indian forces in the IOK and test of the country resorted to painted and portrayed demonstrations in Nankana over alleged unjust treatment of police in a case involving the marriage of a young couple, as a communal issue.
Prime Minister Imran Khan took to twit and condemned the Nankana incident and explained how it was different from the state-sponsored oppression of minorities in India. The premier, in a series of tweets highlighted that the incident is “against his vision and will find zero tolerance and protection from the government including police and judiciary”. The “ongoing attacks across India on Muslims and other minorities” are backed by “Modi’s RSS vision”, which “supports minorities oppression” and that these “targeted attacks against Muslims are part of this agenda,” he tweeted. “RSS goons conducting public lynchings, Muslims being violated by mobs are all not only supported by Modi Govt but Indian police leads anti-Muslim attacks,” PM Imran added.Prime Minister directed Interior Minister Brigadier (retd) Ijaz Ahmed Shah to visit the border town to ascertain the facts regarding Friday’s incident. “What happened here on Friday is a conspiracy by those who are against the brotherhood and national sovereignty,” said Shah.
“International media projected it wrongly and twisted the facts. PM Imran’s government is standing by the Sikh community and those who were behind this incident will be brought to the book,” he added.
