Addressing the abrogation of Article 370 Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan PM Imran Khan threatened of a 'Pulwama-like' incidence as a consequence to India's "suppression" of Kashmiri people while speaking at a joint session in the Pakistani Parliament.
Accusing the BJP of behaving like Hitler's Nazi party, the Pakistani PM said that he 'fears' the Indian government want to conduct ethnic cleansing in the valley.
He said, "They will now suppress Kashmir's resistance, the movement of Azadi even more. They don't consider them as equals, this is a racist ideology. If they thought of them as equals, they would do something democratically. They are using power. They are trying to crush them, and when they crush them, there would be a Pulwama-like incidence. They will repeat what they did before, they will tell the world that terrorism came from Pakistan when everybody knows Pakistan had no role to play in Pulwama, even they know it. Now, when they oppress them, they will blame us."
"I fear, they want to conduct ethnic cleansing. Their party (BJP) is acting exactly like the Nazis of Hitler's Germany. I was reading the reports of (Indian) election, their party has behaved like the Nazi party. Their party has pushed the Opposition to the wall. They have destroyed the very fabric of Indian democracy and ideals of India. Their actions also stand in contrast to the thinking of India's founding fathers, Mahatma Gandhi, Jawahar Lal Nehru. They have destroyed the secular. This is the ideology that murdered Mahatma Gandhi," he added.
The joint session of Upper and Lower houses was summoned by Pakistan President Arif Alvi on Monday after the Indian government revoked Article 370 which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir bifurcated the state into two union territories- Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
The joint sitting is also expected to pass a resolution to condemn the Indian government’s action at the conclusion of the sitting.
The Foreign Office on Monday night issued the text of the letter Qureshi sent on August 1 to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, President of the UN Security Council and President of the UN General Assembly. Qureshi in the letter highlighted the "deteriorating" human rights situation in Kashmir, an alleged violation of ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) and India ending Kashmir's special constitutional status. India is preparing ground to abolish Article 35-A of its Constitution as a first step, followed by the revocation of Article 370," he wrote.
