ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Sunday that the Indian government treated Kashmiris as less human by a three-pronged approach, “One by trying to crush them with brutal force including the use of inhumane weapons like pellet guns against women and children,” he added.
In a series of tweets, PM Khan mentioned relentless oppressive and inhuman tactics the Modi government was pursuing in India-held Kashmir through illegal annexation and brutal use of force.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s regime might conduct a false flag operation against Pakistan by terming the Kashmir freedom movement “terrorism” and accusing Pakistan of backing it.
“Modi’s RSS-inspired doctrine on IOJK (Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir) very clear: First, deprive Kashmiris of their right of self determination by illegal annexation of an Occupied territory. Second, treat them as less than human by a three-pronged approach,” he said.
He said the Modi doctrine had first deprived Kashmiris of their right to self-determination by illegal annexation of an occupied territory.
He said Modi’s regime had imposed an inhumane lockdown, depriving Kashmiris of basic necessities from food to medicines.
He said another inhumane act of the Indian government was that it committed mass arrest of Kashmiris, especially young people, and isolating held Kashmir from the world by cutting off all communication links.
Mr Khan had already said in an interview with the foreign media that India might undertake a deceptive “false flag operation” in occupied Kashmir to try to justify a military action against Pakistan, adding that Pakistan would be forced to respond.
He had feared that a false action by India could escalate tension between the two nuclear-armed countries and such a situation should be alarming for the world.
India stripped Kashmiris of their seven-decade-long special autonomy through a rushed presidential order on Aug 5 last year.
Innocent Kashmiris have been under a curfew by the Modi’s regime for last nine months and they have been deprived of their basic human rights. The whole world is behaving like a silent spectator on the matter.
