Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan was addressing a gathering in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) and threatened to go to war with India
New Delhi: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday (August 14) threatened to go to war over the Indian government abolishing Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
This comment by Pakistan PM came while he was addressing a gathering in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) and said that their people are ready to fight for the "freedom" of Kashmir.
Khan also criticised the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which is the parent organisation of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
In his speech, Khan also spoke about the lynching of Muslims in India while the community is living in fear. The Pakistan prime minister added that the current developments in Kashmir are alarming for the Muslim population residing in the Valley.
"We are all concerned at the moment about the truth of the humanitarian crisis and the atrocities created by this lockdown that has been imposed," Pakistan PM said.
Accusing the Indian government, Khan said, "He (Narendra Modi) is playing his final card, but it is going to be very expensive for India."
"Kashmir was not on the radar of the international community, but we as Pakistan have to ensure that this new momentum continues where Kashmir is in the global narrative. I pledge to be the ambassador of Kashmir," Imran Khan said.
"Now, I will become the brand ambassador and take Kashmir issue to all possible platforms," Khan said.
Before concluding his speech, Khan criticised the Indian Constitution and said that the "facade of tolerant India had been removed".
