Islamabad, May 17 (KMS): Prime Minister Imran Khan says Modi’s RSS-inspired doctrine on occupied Kashmir is clear on depriving Kashmiris of their right to self-determination, imposing inhuman lockdown in the held territory and dubbing the Kashmiris’ struggle as terrorism.

In a series of tweets, he said as a first step India is depriving Kashmiris of their right of self-determination by illegal annexation of an Occupied territory.

Second, the Prime Minister said, it is treating them as less than human by a three-pronged approach including trying to crush them with brute force by using inhumane weapons like pellet guns against women and children; imposing an inhumane lockdown depriving Kashmiris of basic necessities from food to medicines; and by mass arrests of Kashmiris especially youth and isolating Occupied Kashmir from the world by cutting off all communication links. »
