Pak PM Imran Khan warned to world: Inaction over Kashmir will lead to direct military confrontation
Pakistan PM Imran Khan has warned that inaction over the Kashmir issue will lead to direct military confrontation.
Khan has written an opinion article for The New York Times on Friday where he said that the world cannot ignore Kashmir.
Imran Khan wrote, “If the world does nothing to stop the Indian assault on Kashmir and its people, 2 nuclear-armed states will get ever closer to a direct military confrontation.”
Imran Khan has been critising the Narendra Modi-led government ever since the Indian government scrapped Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.
Tension between India and Pakistan spiked after India abrogated provisions of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution to revoke Jammu and Kashmir’s special status and bifurcated it into two Union Territories (UTs).
Imran Khan, on India’s move to scrap Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, said, “On August 5, in its most brazen and egregious move, Modi’s government altered the status of Indian-occupied Kashmir through the revocation of Article 370 and 35A of the Indian Constitution. The move is illegal under the Constitution of India, but more important, it is a violation of the United Nations Security Council [UNSC] resolutions on Kashmir and the Shimla Agreement between India and Pakistan.”
