In the midst of the terrible floods that caused havoc in the nation, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari claimed on Wednesday that his country had not gotten any relief from India.
In a New York interview with France 24, Bilawal was questioned about Pakistan’s request for assistance and any assistance that its neighbor had provided. Both questions received a negative response from him.
Regarding the state of relations with India, he said: “Unfortunately, the India of today is a changed India and is no longer secular India promised by its founding fathers for all its citizens. We have a long and tangled history.
“India is turning increasingly into a Hindu-supremacist nation at the expense of its Muslim and Christian minority,” the report states. “Unfortunately, this trend is also present in the disputed territory of Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.”
In reference to the withdrawal of the special status for Indian-occupied Kashmir in August 2019, Bilawal claimed that India had undertaken specific measures and committed certain acts that had rendered “engagement with India difficult for us.”
According to him, there is “tiny place for us to participate” because the UN and UN Security Council resolutions are being undermined, the disputed territory’s boundaries are being altered, and demographic changes are being attempted.
It is unquestionably a racist, fascist, and anti-Islamic stance. India as a whole has responded to it, not just in Kashmir.
The largest minority on the earth, the Muslim minority in India, feels harassed and insecure, according to FM Bilawal. “India’s government treats its own Muslim population in this manner. You simply have to imagine how they are treating the Muslims in Kashmir and Pakistan, he continued.
The younger generation in both countries, Bilawal did add, “wants to see two neighbours living in peace side by side.”
