ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Federal Minister for National Food and Security Syed Fakhar Imam has said that India has the highest civilian to military ratio (9:1) in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) to suppress their freedom.
While chairing a Seminar on Kashmir organized by the Jammu and Kashmir Self-Determination Movement-International (JKSDMI), the minister said that India should know that the government of Pakistan and every Pakistani fully support the people of Kashmir
The federal minister said that the United Nations has on numerous occasions discussed the issue of Kashmir in the aftermath of the illegal and unilateral action of India on August 5, 2019, which proves that Kashmir is a disputed territory.
The minister said that India’s narrow and myopic outlook has ostracized 8 million Kashmiris.
Fakhar Imam said that the world should immediately act to avoid any untoward incident since these two nuclear powers i.e Pakistan and India are looking at each other eyeball to eyeball. He said that the world has started to open its eyes to the human rights violations in Kashmir which have been highlighted by international media such as NY Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal, etc.
The federal minister said that the emerging strategic partnership between the United States, Japan, Australia, and India has allowed India to expand its hegemonic designs in the region.
Syed Fakhar Imam said that India’s ethos has completely changed under the RSS ideology of the Modi government.
The minister further said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has raised the plight of the Kashmiris on every forum and will continue to do so in the future. He said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government will continue to expose India as an oppressor and aggressor denying the Kashmiris their right of self-determination in violation of the resolutions of the UN Security Council.
