Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has expressed profound remorse over the international community’s failure to break its prolonged silence over the heightened Indian brutality and the worsening predicament of the Kashmiri people, who stand justified and resilient in their struggle for freedom.
On Wednesday, while addressing a seminar on “Pakistan-India Relations and Acceleration of Freedom Movement in Occupied Kashmir”, held at the Institute of Policy Study, FM Qureshi commended the will and resilience of the Kashmiris, who stand dedicated to their justified demands for freedom despite the surmounting aggression and atrocities of the Indian occupation. FM Qureshi said, “The Kashmiri are committed to their struggle for independence in face of Indian brutality and violence”.
Radio Pakistan reports that Mushal Malik, the wife Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik was also present at the seminar, and she condemned the “draconian laws” that are in practice throughout the Indian-occupied valley of Kashmir.
Referring to Modi’s misadventure and provocative warmongering, FM Qureshi made it clear that Pakistan countered New Delhi’s attempts to incite aggression and violence in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack with a “befitting response”. He warned against the warmongering mindset of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and urged the Pakistani nation and international community to “remain alert”.
FM Qureshi highlighted the need to develop a national consensus on the question of national security, and he announced his initiative of writing letters to the parliamentary representatives of various political parties, including leaders of both, Pakistan Muslim League and Pakistan People’s Party.
However, he expressed his disappointment over the hesitation and disinclination exhibited in the response he received from the opposition parties. FM Qureshi maintained that while their response was not negative, the parliamentary and opposition leaders he contacted were “hesitant to act promptly” on matters of national security.

Radio Pakistan reports that Mushal Malik, the wife Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik was also present at the seminar, and she condemned the “draconian laws” that are in practice throughout the Indian-occupied valley of Kashmir. She said that Indian aggression did not even spare hospitals and babies in Kashmir are dying due to shortage of vaccine. Mushal Malik stressed that human rights abuses and violence in Indian-occupied Kashmir is at its peak, and the international community must act and exert pressure on India to put an end to the prolonged suffering of the innocent people of the valley.
‘Modi’s War Doctrine’ & Brutality in Kashmir
On Tuesday, senior PPP leader Senator Rehman Malik launched his book, ‘Modi’s War Doctrine’ in an elegant ceremony held at the Pakistan Institute of Parliamentary Services, in Islamabad. Senator Malik’s book is comprehensive research into the Indian strategies of escalating tension and exhibiting an aggressive stance against Pakistan, just months before every general election in India.
Malik highlighted Modi’s strategy of “ethnic cleansing” of the Muslim majority in Kashmir by carrying out “mass murders” and the migration of “RSS trained families”, who are increasingly setting in Kashmir.
While addressing the audience, Senator Rehman Malik noted that Pakistan is well aware of Indian designs and warned the rival neighbor that Pakistan stands united against is aggression. He said, “When it comes to Pakistan’s national interest, we are all willing to set our differences aside, and stand united behind our armed forces.”
While referring to Modi’s affiliation with the Hindu extremist group, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Senator Rehman Malik said, as quoted by the Express Tribune, “It is a proven fact that Modi is a terrorist, and the members of the terrorist outfit Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) are being trained under his rule. We have evidence of the Modi administration supporting terrorist organizations.”
Senator Rehman Malik stressed that the Secretary-General of United Nations António Guterres and President of the UN Human Rights Commission Michelle Bachelet must condemn the heightened human rights violations and sheer disrespect of international laws by the Indian forces in the occupied valley of Jammu & Kashmir.
Condemning the brutalities of the Indian occupation army, Senator Rehman Malik noted that under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, the Indian army has been given the liberty to commit unchecked and unprecedented acts of brutality and violence in Kashmir. Troop deployment in the valley has exceeded beyond the number of 700,000, who are free to kill, repress, rape and torture innocent and unarmed Kashmiris. He condemned the mass murders, mass pellet gun attacks and numerous cases of blinding, the enforced disappearances, rapes, political prisoners, torture and custodial deaths, and the rampant suppression of freedom in Indian occupied Kashmir.
Senator Malik stated that Kashmir is “Pakistan’s jugular vein” and the people of Pakistan are, and have always been, standing behind the innocent people of Kashmir in their justified struggle for freedom against Indian oppression and illegal occupation. Malik highlighted Modi’s strategy of “ethnic cleansing” of the Muslim majority in Kashmir by carrying out “mass murders” and the migration of “RSS trained families”, who are increasingly setting in Kashmir.
Sardar Masood Khan warned that there should be “no formula” to resolve the Kashmir dispute without consulting the Kashmiri people who have been subjected to oppression for decades.
The PPP leader said, “These RSS trained families are being allotted houses and properties in Kashmir as part of the strategy to reduce the population of Muslims and turn them into a minority, which is a clear violation of their rights. RSS has already proposed its strategy of developing 5000 Village Defense Committees in Indian-Occupied Kashmir”.
Modi’s India: Communal Violence Against Muslims
Senator Rehman Malik’s book, “Modi’s War Doctrine”, provides an impressive insight into the ideology and history of the RSS, its affiliations and production of terrorist networks deployed throughout India to carry out atrocities and ethnic cleansing of Muslims and other religious minorities in India. In his book, Malik describes how the RSS works to incite violence amongst the young generation of Hindus, to encourage them to embrace the “Saffron Ideology”, the training grounds where RSS produces skilled terrorists and the exploitations towards developing an aggressive “Hindu Rashtra”.
While addressing the public earlier this week, Azad Jammu and Kashmir President Sardar Masood Khan blamed Indian Prime Minister Modi for “promoting extremism in South Asia. He said, as quoted by The Nation, “The Indian Prime Minister is spearheading the extremists. He is a top terrorist. Modi’s doctrine will affect the whole region”.
AJ&K President added, “The Indian government has been pressing Muslims to become Hindus. They are also provoking anti-Pakistan sentiments. Only Pakistan’s nuclear defense has stopped India’s aggression,” He warned Pakistanis to stay alert and prepared to fight Indian aggression with a powerful strategy. Sardar Masood Khan warned that there should be “no formula” to resolve the Kashmir dispute without consulting the Kashmiri people who have been subjected to oppression for decades.
While addressing a rally on Wednesday, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh N. Chandrababu Naidu, called Prime Minister Modi a “hardcore terrorist” and requested the minorities not to vote against Modi as his policies and agendas are never in their favor. India Today cited Naidu’s remarks, “Narendra Modi is a hardcore terrorist. He is not a good Samaritan. I request the minority brothers present here only one thing. If you vote for Modi, many problems will arise. This Modi brought triple talaq act planning to put you behind bars, right?”
While referring to the Gujarat riots that claimed hundreds of Muslim lives in 2002, Chandrababu said, “I was the first person who demanded his resignation. Later most of the countries in the world banned his entry. After becoming the Prime Minister, he is once again trying to attack minorities.”
