Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday accused the Indian government of moving systematically with a “Hindu supremacist agenda” and said the world “must step in before it is too late.”
In a series of tweets, Khan referred to the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill which would grant Indian citizenship to non-Muslim refugees coming from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan before 2015 after facing religious persecution there.
“India, under (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi, has been moving systematically with its Hindu Supremacist agenda,” Khan said in a tweet.
This agenda, “accompanied by threats to Pakistan under a nuclear overhang, will lead to massive bloodshed and far-reaching consequences for the world,” he said.
Khan said the “world must step in before it is too late.”
Commenting on Khan’s remarks, the Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi said that Pakistan should focus on its treatment of minorities rather than commenting on India’s internal matter.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
