Islamabad, August 14 (KMS): Drawing parallels between Hitler’s Nazi regime and India’s RSS, of which Narendra Modi is a lifelong member, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan has said the Indian PM has done a blunder by depriving occupied Kashmir of its special status, stressing that he will become ambassador of the Kashmiri people and raise the Kashmir dispute at every forum.

PM Imran Khan while addressing a special session of the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly today in Muzaffarabad said New Delhi has internationalized the issue of Kashmir with its latest move which has also drawn international community’s attention. Imran Khan was in AJK capital as part of the govt’s decision to observe this year’s Independence Day in solidarity with Kashmiris in light of India’s move to annex the occupied territory. The visit was also meant to send a message to the world that his country stands by the Kashmiris.

“On the day of Pakistan’s independence, I am with my Kashmiri brothers and sisters,” he said at the outset of his address. He said Modi has played his last card and it will only lead to freedom of Kashmir. “Whatever was done during the curfew by India, we will tell the international community that you are responsible. Whichever forum we get, I will be the ambassador and bring up Kashmir at every forum,” he said.

Imran Khan said that Modi had declared that his government would bring prosperity to Kashmir by revoking Article 370, likening it to how Adolf Hitler used to speak when attacking Russia. “By sending more troops, by closing down communications, Modi is bringing ‘prosperity’.

He said Indian ruling party had no regard for its international commitments, adding, “They only care about their ideology. It is arrogance. They are driven by hatred”. “There is a terrifying ideology in front of us today — the Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) party’s ideology, which Modi has been a member of from childhood. In this ideology, like with the Nazis, the ethnic cleansing of Muslims from India was also included. If you understand this ideology, a lot of things can be understood.” Speaking of Kashmiri leaders, he said those who used to be pro-India, such as Farooq Abdullah, are now in agreement with Quaid-i-Azam’s two-nation theory.

“In the past five years, the cruelty in occupied Kashmir was due to this ideology. This card [revoking Article 370] played by Narendra Modi was the final solution,” he said, referring to India’s move to downgrade occupied Kashmir’s status. “We are all fearful about what we will find out once the curfew is lifted in occupied Kashmir. What are they attempting to do?”. “Now the world’s eye is on Kashmir and on Pakistan”, he said, adding the UN also needs to realize that it was not only Kashmir, but the entire Muslim community that was looking towards the world body.

Pakistani premier ended his speech by addressing Modi again: “Don’t be under any misconception; you think Kashmiris will accept defeat because you passed a law but they have become battle-hardened. Their fear is gone. We saw that they came out on the streets, from whatever little we could see on BBC; only a brave nation can come out this way.”
