Prime Minister Imran Khan has ruled out the option of supporting militant groups in the Jammu & Kashmir in the aftermath of India’s illegal annexation of Kashmir.

The premier discarded the option on grounds that it would be detrimental to the cause. He was of the view that India could stage a false flag operation in an attempt to create a situation similar to post-Pulwama to divert the world’s attention.

“We tried really hard to normalize ties with India,” he explained. “But they [Narendra Modi’s government] exploited the situation. They exploited Pulwama [attack] for their elections. They have been lobbying to get us blacklisted by the FATF (Financial Action Task Force) as well,” he added.

PM Khan maintained that Modi was following in the footsteps of Hitler. “His party BJP [Bharatiya Janata Party] is pursuing the same tactics that the Nazis did [in Germany]. They want an India that is only for Hindus alone and carry out genocide in Kashmir,” he said.

In the meeting, PM Khan said that Indian government’s move in Kashmir was driven by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sang’s (RSS) Hindutva ideology or “Hindu supremacy”. He said that It is not meant to benefit anyone but Hindutva ideology.

In another tweet, PM Khan said: “The whole world is waiting to see what happens to oppressed Kashmiris in IOK when curfew is lifted. Does the BJP govt think by using greater military force against Kashmiris in IOK, it will stop the freedom movement? Chances are it will gain momentum.”

On August 5, India’s government had revoked the special status of occupied Kashmir and rushed through a presidential decree in a bid to fully integrate its only Muslim-majority region with the rest of the country, hours after imposing a major security clampdown in the region.

Indian Home Minister Amit Shah had introduced the presidential order and the bill in Parliament on August 5. Through the order, India has revoked Article 370 of the Indian Constitution thereby ending the special autonomous status of Jammu and Kashmir.
