Foreign OfficePakistan lambasts Indian RSS Chief’s provocative and irresponsible remarks

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan has completely rejected and strongly condemned the highly provocative and irresponsible remarks made by the Chief of India’s Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Mohan Bhagwat, calling for “undoing” of the partition.

In a statement on Saturday, the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Asim Iftikhar Ahmad said that this is not the first time that the RSS Chief has publicly indulged in such delusional thinking and historical revisionism.

The Spokesperson said that Pakistan has repeatedly highlighted the threat posed to regional peace and stability by the toxic mix of the extremist ‘Hindutva’ ideology (Hindu Rashtra) and expansionist foreign policy (Akhand Bharat) being pursued by the ruling RSS-BJP dispensation in India.

In the internal context, this dangerous mindset aims to completely marginalize and dispossess the minorities in India. In the external dimension, it poses an existential threat to all of India’s neighbours in South Asia, he said.

Asim Iftikhar said that the world is witness to the systematic usurpation of the rights of minorities, especially Muslims, in India and the unabated repression of Kashmiris in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). The reckless misadventures of India, including in February 2019, that seriously imperiled regional peace and stability are also in front of the world.

The Foreign Office Spokesperson said that Pakistan has consistently opposed India’s hegemonic impulses and demonstrated a firm resolve to thwart any aggressive designs.

While committed to peace, the people and armed forces of Pakistan are fully capable of defending the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Country.

The Spokesperson said that those belonging to the BJP and its ideological fountainhead RSS would be well-advised to refrain from making such provocative and irresponsible statements, accept the established realities, and learn to follow the imperatives of peaceful coexistence.
