Nawaz-Modi friendship causing irreparable damage to Kashmir cause: Bilawal
He said that a statement of condemnation by the Foreign Office was not enough, and that the Prime Minister should address the issue personally and take a tough stance.
He lamented that the Nawaz-Modi friendship was main reason for the deafening silence of the Prime Minister, which has caused irreparable damage to the cause of Kashmir. “It seems like Nawaz and Modi have take the same stance over the killings in Kashmir,” he said.
At least 30 people have been killed and more than 300 have been injured since the past two days after curfew was imposed in Indian-Occupied Kashmir after the killing of Hurriyat leader Burhan Wani.
He said that we cannot turn a blind eye to the atrocities of the Indian forces and killing of innocent people, and urged the international community to take notice of the gross violations of human rights.
Bilawal said that they are well aware of the high-handed tactics of the PML-N and will not let them succeed. He was referring to the armed clash between the PPP and PML-N in Azad Kashmir which resulted in the death of two people and injured fifteen.
He criticised the registration of an FIR against their candidate Faisal Rathore. He said that Rathore was not present during the incident and was actively involved in the campaigns. It was a common tactic of the PML-N to victimise and harass political opponents before the polls.
Earlier, Information Minister Pervez Rashid had strongly criticised the PPP and blamed them for the killing of their workers. He said that the clash was an attempt to sabotage the upcoming elections and that the PPP has resorted to the bullet instead of the ballot.
Rashid was also highly critical of Chaudhry Abdul Majeed who is the Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir and also the Chairman of the PPP in the region and said that free and fair elections under his government was a distance dream.
