PM Khan has been making some controversial comments lately regarding the elections being held in India. He has expressed his choice of party that India should be governed by. This would come as a surprise but he hopes that PM Modi’s government should continue as the leading party in hope for better peace talks. This comes as a huge surprise as political campaign has been really hurting the IOK Kashmiris. According to PM Khan:
“If the next Indian government is led by the opposition Congress party, it might be too scared to seek a settlement with Pakistan over Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK), fearing a backlash from the right,” the prime minister told a small group of foreign journalists in an interview.
“Perhaps if the BJP – a right wing party — wins, some kind of settlement on Kashmir could be reached.”
This is despite the massive alienation that Muslims in IOK and India are facing under the Modi regime, Imran observed.
“I never thought I would see what is happening in India right now. Muslim-ness is being attacked.”
Considering his opinion, he has received a lot of criticism from opposition party for favouring Modi’s party who was responsible for the rising tensions between India and Pakistan over Kashmir and how the Indian Government intends to increase the hostility towards Muslims through various measures.
Earlier, Imran accused India and Israel of moral bankruptcy over their election annexation pledges. He questioned whether the citizens of both countries felt outraged at their leaders’ “moral bankruptcy” as they defied international law to gain votes.
“When leaders in Israel and India show a moral bankruptcy in their readiness to annex occupied West Bank and IoK [Indian occupied Kashmir] in defiance of international law, United Nations Security Council resolutions, and their own Constitution for votes, don’t their people feel a sense of outrage and wonder how far they [the leaders] will go simply to win an election?” he asked in a tweet.
Elections in India would be held next week, where BJP would be trying to return to governing India, however, they have a strong opposition in the Opposition Congress Party.
