Raising questions over the Indian government’s recent decision on the abrogation of the special status of Kashmir and forging a new citizenship law, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said that it could lead to millions of Muslims fleeing India, creating “a refugee crisis that would dwarf other crises”, APA reports citing Sputnik.
Khan, who was addressing the Global Forum on Refugees in Geneva, Switzerland, said the refugee crisis could even lead to a conflict between the two south Asian nuclear-armed neibours.
“We are worried there not only could be a refugee crisis, we are worried it could lead to a conflict between two nuclear-armed countries”, said Khan on Dec. 17.
