In a tweet Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Kashmir is under curfew for 12 consecutive days. Already highly militarized zone is witnessing another mass troop deployment in Kashmir.
With no communications and total lockdown of the valley, will the world stay silent over genocide in Kashmir?

Is the world waiting to witness another episode of Muslim genocide and Srebrenica event, PM asked in the tweet?
PM said that if the world does not act and allowed this impeding genocide, the repercussions of this would be worst. There will be strong reaction from the Muslim world.
There will be new wave of extremism in the region. I want UN to take actions against Indian aggression in Kashmir, PM added.

Rupert Colville said that human rights violations in Kashmir by India are of grave concerns. Such actions can make human rights more troublesome in the region.
