Imran Khan

PM Imran Khan. The Muslim Times’ Chief Editor’s comments: Khan’s comments are not precisely true if you ask the minorities. This underscores the importance of secularism in every country of the world to ensure the human rights of minorities and rights of women

“Today in India we are seeing the Nazi-inspired RSS ideology take over a nuclear-armed state of over a billion people. Whenever a racist ideology based on hatred takes over, it leads to bloodshed,” Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said.

As the death toll continues to rise in the violence that has engulfed northeast Delhi, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan Wednesday accused the Indian government of “targeting 200 million Muslims” in the country.

“Today in India we are seeing the Nazi-inspired RSS ideology take over a nuclear-armed state of over a billion people. Whenever a racist ideology based on hatred takes over, it leads to bloodshed,” Khan said, adding that in his country, “minorities are equal citizens.”

Raking up the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status last August, Khan said the “genie is out of the bottle” and that “the bloodshed will get worse”.

“As I had predicted in my address to UN General Assembly last year, once the genie is out of the bottle the bloodshed will get worse. (Kashmir) was the beginning. Now 200 million Muslims in India are being targeted. The world community must act now,” he said.

He further warned “that anyone in Pakistan targeting our non-Muslim citizens or their places of worship will be dealt with strictly. Our minorities are equal citizens of this country.”

The two neighbours have repeatedly accused each other of discriminating against minorities. In January this year, India had condemned the “targeted killing” of a member of the Sikh community in Pakistan, which incidentally happened a day after a mob attacked a gurdwara, and asked Pakistan to “stop prevaricating” and protect its minorities.

Khan, on the other hand, had slammed India over the citizenship amendment act that grants citizenship to non-Muslim minorities from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh who entered India before December 2014. He had also sought the intervention of the United Nations General Assembly when India removed the special status granted to then state of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated it into two union territories on August 5.

  1. Either Mr. Khan is not aware or hiding the truth . Under muslim ideology ( not Islam ) , minority can’t be safe . In the present world , no ideology allows bloodshed in the name of religion except muslim ideology . One may differ me but truth can’t be denied . The muslim ideology doesn’t allow differences . It even don’t permit to put your points . It is nothing but the second name of ” blind faith ” which strongly recommends the murder of human being in the name of blasphemy , murteed , false prophethood and kufr . It strongly recommends to establish their Sharia , if force is needed , it allows . When Mr. Trump warns against the muslim ideology ( mistakenly he uses the word ” Islam ” which is not correct as Islam is not the muslim ideology ) , he is hundred percent right . Mr. Imran khan should collect the conditions of minorities in his own country if he is sincer .
