It is difficult to remain inactive observer along LoC if India continues her attacks: PM Imran

0

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan once again reminded the world about Pakistan’s concerns over an Indian false flag operation in occupied Kashmir, warning that Pakistan would find it increasingly difficult to remain an inactive observer in the face of continuous
attacks across the Line of Control (LoC).
“I want to make clear to India and the international community that if India continues its military attacks killing civilians across LoC, Pakistan will find it increasingly difficult to remain an inactive observer along the LoC,” PM Imran said in a tweet Sunday.
Imran Khan said Pakistan fears that Indian government can conduct a false flag operation as the cross-border situation has continued to intensify.
The prime minister further urged the United Nations Security Council to pressurise India to allow the return of the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) on the LoC across occupied Kashmir.
“Indian Occupation forces continue to target and kill civilians across the Line of Control with increasing intensity and frequency, there is an urgent need for United Nations Security Council to insist India to allow United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP)
return to IOJK-side of LoC,” said PM Imran Khan in his latest tweet Sunday.
The Prime Minister warned India and the international community that if India continues its military attacks killing civilians across LoC, Pakistan will find it increasingly difficult to remain an inactive observer along the LoC.
Earlier, the prime minister had warned of New Delhi’s plan to carry out a false flag operation to divert the world’s attention from the ongoing protests in the country and the situation in the occupied valley.
PM Imran had said that in case India decided to conduct a false flag operation to divert attention from its domestic crisis “to divert attention from its domestic chaos plus whip up war hysteria to mobilise Hindu nationalism”, Pakistan will have no option but to give a ‘befitting response’ to India.
The reaction came day after Pakistan had urged a senior Indian diplomat to pay focus on their internal crises rather than feigning concern for minorities elsewhere for narrow political agenda.
The Indian side was conveyed that minorities in Pakistan enjoy full protections and rights under the Constitution. It was emphasized that the legal system of Pakistan is fully capable of protecting the rights of all its citizens.
On the other hand, Indian Charge d’ Affaires Gaurav Ahluwalia was summoned by Director General (South Asia & SAARC) Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri to register Pakistan’s strong protest at the ceasefire violations by Indian occupation forces along the LoC, resulting in serious injuries to an innocent civilian lady.
Due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian forces in Kotkotera Sector on 18 January 2020, 36-year-old Shamim Begum, resident of village Jugalpal sustained serious injuries.
Condemning the targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, the DG (SA & SAARC) underscored that such senseless Indian acts, in clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding and complete disregard for international human rights and international norms, further vitiate the tense atmosphere along the LoC and pose a threat to
regional peace and stability.
He emphasized that by raising tensions along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB), India cannot divert attention from the worsening human rights situation in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K).
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan Sunday said that Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamed, the most experienced and accomplished statesman of the Muslim world, faced exactly the same problems as his government in Pakistan.
In a tweet, the premier has shared an article titled, “Startling Similarities – Pakistan and Malaysia.”
Sharing a report listing “startling similarities” between Pakistan’s situation and that of Malaysia, the prime minister tweeted: “The most experienced and accomplished statesman of the Muslim world faces exactly the same problems as my govt.”
Imran Khan said the most experienced and accomplished statesman of the Muslim world faces exactly the same problems as my govt. He is confronted with an entrenched pol mafia that has bankrupted and indebted Malaysia, leaving state institutions devastated.
The prime minister also tagged a write up of Malaysian premier Mahathir Mohamed titled “Kerajaan Pakatan Harapan” in which he recalled the conditions when the Pakatan Harapan coalition had formed the government, the challenges and the achievements his government had made so far.
Strikingly both prime ministers not only shared identical views regarding the local and regional issues, but also they had inherited the burning challenges from their preceding governments ranging from whopping corruption, fragile economy and devalued currency leading to extreme poverty and internal and external debts.
Amazingly, the basic contentions in Mahathir’s write up about Malaysian economy, governance, security as well as the industry bore astounding similarities to what was inherited by Imran Khan of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf who had also waged a long drawn up battle against corruption and the corrupt elite.
“It took over from a kleptocratic government which had raped the nation for years, destroyed its finances, undermined its administrative agencies, abused its laws, borrowed well beyond the ceiling permitted, placed the country on the path to bankruptcy, made the people dependent on the Government with bribes and generally undermined the moral of the people,” the Malaysian prime minister wrote what Imran Khan had been frequently telling his people right from his electioneering campaigns.
In their journeys of reformations, both the leaders faced similar resistance as what Mahathir said a lot of people would like to continue corrupt practices to enjoy corrupt money.
Like Prime Minister Imran Khan, Mahathir also rubbished the notions of his government being the directionless and claimed the credit of reducing the debt burden and bringing stability to the national economy.
Imran Khan had also declared 2020 as the year of progress after the national economy had been stabilized with robust stock market, appreciation in the local currency and the flow of investments in different sectors.
In a meeting with the Malaysian prime minister’s special envoy and Deputy Foreign Minister Marzuki Bin Haji Yahya last year in Nov, PM Imran Khan had reaffirmed his commitment to further deepening Pakistan-Malaysia relations in all fields.
He had appreciated Malaysia’s principled position on the Jammu and Kashmir dispute. He also apprised the special envoy of the continuing inhuman lockdown of over 8 million Kashmiris since India’s illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019 and the dire human rights and humanitarian situation resulting from it.
The prime minister stressed the importance of the international community playing its role in the removal of curfew and other restrictions in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and peaceful resolution of the longstanding issue. – NNI
