“There will be no durable peace and stability in South Asia until the Jammu and Kashmir dispute is resolved on the basis of international legitimacy. Kashmir has been rightly described as a nuclear flashpoint,” Mr Khan mentioned. “ The Security Council must prevent a disaster conflict and secure the implementation of its own resolutions, as it did in the case of East Timor,” he mentioned.
“I want to make it clear that any attempt by the fascist, totalitarian, RSS led Indian Government to aggress against Pakistan will be met by a nation that that will fight for its freedom to the end,” Mr Khan mentioned.
Mr Khan criticised India’s abrogation of Article 370 and the variety of troops in the area. He mentioned the Indian authorities was attempting to vary the demographic of the state in order to “affect the outcome of a plebiscite envisaged in the U.N. Security Council resolutions.”

“The RSS founding fathers were inspired by the Nazis and they adopted their concepts of racial purity and supremacy. While the Nazis hate was directed at the Jews, the RSS directs it towards the Muslims and to a lesser extent, the Christians. They believe that India is exclusively for Hindus and others are not equal citizens. The secularism of Gandhi and Nehru has been replaced by the dream of creating a Hindu rashtra…” Mr Khan mentioned. He made reference to the truth that Muslims had been killed in 2002 in Gujarat when Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s was the state’s Chief Minister.
Mr Khan mentioned that Pakistan had confirmed “maximum restraint” regardless of India’s actions on the Line of Control (LoC) and that it had at all times referred to as for a peaceable resolution. The truth is, Pakistan has been recognized to, for many years, undermine peace in the Kashmir area by means of its sponsoring of cross-border terrorism in the realm.
