Government in the soup, says PM Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan Sunday said his government faced the same problems which were being faced by the most experienced and accomplished statesman of the Muslim world — Mahathir bin Mohamad in Malaysia.

In a tweet, Imran Khan said Prime Minister Mahathir was confronted with an entrenched political mafia that had bankrupted and indebted Malaysia, leaving state institutions devastated.

In another tweet, he made it clear that if India continued its military attacks killing civilians across the Line of Control (LoC), then Pakistan will find it increasingly difficult to remain an inactive observer along the LoC.

The prime minister wrote, “I want to make clear to India and the international community that if India continues its military attacks killing civilians across the LoC, Pakistan will find it increasingly difficult to remain an inactive observer along the LoC”. He also wanted the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to insist that India allowed UNMOGIP return to the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir side of the Line of Control.

The prime minister wrote, “As Indian occupation forces continue to target & kill civilians across the LoC with increasing intensity & frequency, there is an urgent need for UNSC to insist India to allow UNMOGIP return to IOJK-side of LOC. We fear an Indian false flag operation”.

The Pakistani leadership has warned on different occasions that India would resort to a false-flag operation to divert the attention from widespread domestic agitation against controversial legislation, aimed at targeting the minorities, particularly the Indian Muslims.

India has been extensively violating a 2003 ceasefire agreement in recent months. Tensions between the two nuclear-armed nations escalated after New Delhi took the decision to revoke Article 370 of the Indian Constitution in August 2018, which had ensured the special status of Jammu and Kashmir for decades.

Ever since the state was stripped of its special status, Pakistan has been on a diplomatic offensive highlighting continued violation of human rights in the IOK.
