Modi will be paid back in his own coin: Imran Khan

MUZAFFARABAD: (Web Desk) – As the Independence Day of Pakistan is being celebrated as the Kashmir Solidarity Day on August 14, Prime Minister Imran Khan addressed the Legislative Assembly of Azad and Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) in Muzaffarabad amid soaring tensions with arch-rival India over occupied-Kashmir dispute.
“We have exposed BJP’s and Modi’s real face in front of the world while we’re confronting the dangerous ideology of RSS,” PM Khan said while expressing unity with Kashmiris.
“Today the people of Kashmir have been undergoing severe difficulties,” PM Khan said.
“RSS’s ideology that promotes hatred against Muslims and minorities has been inherited from Hitler and Modi is a member of it […] they believe that there’s no place of Muslims in India,” the premier mentioned, adding “There is no conflict of interests with India, we stand [against] this ideology.”
While recalling the massacre of Muslims in Gujarat of India, the premier said: “Pakistan was created based on an ideology [of two nation theory] whereas Muslims in India are living in a state of fear.”
“Gandhi was assassinated by this extremist ideology, it has roots in the history of India,” PM Khan said while expressing grave concerns over the ongoing intense oppression by Indian armed forces in occupied-Kashmir.
PM Khan said: “Modi has played his last card and it will cost him a heavy price, and he will be paid back in his own coin.”
The premier stated that Modi’s ideology has defied his own constitution. “The entire world is worried about the people of Kashmir and looking towards [resolution] of the dispute.”
“A country isn’t destroyed by a war, instead through eradication of an ideology […] I will become Kashmir’s ambassador in the world by raising voice [in Kashmiris’ support],” he added.
Upon his arrival, the premier was presented the guard of honour by AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider and President Masood Khan.
According to sources, the premier, accompanied by several ministers, will hold meeting with the leaders of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference in the Speaker Chamber. Besides, he will hold meetings with other political representatives.

The 73rd Independence Day is being observed today as Kashmir Solidarity Day to express harmony and solidarity with Kashmiris in their recent plight during Indian oppression.
The government of Pakistan has revealed a special logo for the Independence Day to be observed on 14th of August.
The logo has been created to express solidarity with the people of Occupied Kashmir after BJP-led Indian government stripped the Jammu and Kashmir special status of the valley with the revocation of Article 370 of the constitution.
The logo unveiled is based on “Kashmir banega Pakistan” theme. Word Kashmir, written in red colour, represents sacrifices rendered during the freedom struggle.
Pakistan’s flag represents Pakistanis resolve to go to any extent for Occupied Kashmir’s freedom while the red border around the logo highlights India’s illegal occupation and atrocities it is committing in the valley.
It is pertinent to mention here that Kashmir flag alongside National flag has been hoisted at all important public and private buildings on the occasion of the Independence Day to express solidarity with the people of Kashmir.
In the wake of the move, Pakistan has launched a diplomatic offensive aimed at reversing the order and formally asked the United Nations Security Council late Tuesday to hold an emergency session to address Indian illegal actions.
Pakistan has also expelled the Indian ambassador, halted bilateral trade and suspended cross-border transport services, however, analysts said the actions were unlikely to move Delhi.
The Indian part of the picturesque Himalayan state has been under lockdown for over a week with more than 9 lakh troops deployed in occupied-Kashmir and other towns and villages, with a curfew enforced across the region and phone and internet lines cut to quell potential unrest.
Earlier this week PM Khan lambasted the international community for failing to challenge India and said turning a blind eye to the spread of Indian Hindu nationalism was the same as appeasing Hitler.
