PM Imran in Geneva

Prime Minister Imran Khan addressed Global Refugee Forum (GRF) session in Geneva here on Tuesday (today).

PM Imran Khan says Pakistan is trying its level best in the peace process of Afghanistan for dignified repatriation of the Afghan refugees.

He said that we must try or prevent people from becoming refugees.

The premier urged the international community to take a serious note of gross violations of human rights in occupied Kashmir as about eight million people have been besieged by Indian troops after the Modi regime revoked its special autonomy.

PM Imran co-convened the first ever two-day (GRF) co-hosted by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the U.N. Refugee Agency and the Swiss Government in Geneva, Switzerland.

He alarmed the world leaders that Kashmir conflict between the two nuclear-armed states could escalate.

“The world should pressurize India to stop the emerging crisis in the region. India has besieged eight million in IOK,” PM said.

He said that India is trying to eliminate Kashmiris.

The Prime Minister said that there is need to understand the fact what would happen if India lifts curfew in Occupied Kashmir.

The Prime Minister said the people of Pakistan hosted four million Afghan refugees with generosity for about four decades and there are still three million refugees in the country including 1.4 million registered ones.

Imran Khan also paid tributes to Turkey for hosting the largest refugee population.

Referring to the revocation of special status of occupied Kashmir by India on 5th of August, the Prime Minister said eight million Kashmiris have been confined to their homes.

He said the world must realize that the main aim of the Indian government is to change the demographic composition of the territory from a Muslim majority to a Muslim minority.

PM Imran said this could lead to a refugee crisis and the world community must take notice of the situation and put pressure on India to stop this illegal activity of settling in the Hindu population in the held valley.

Imran Khan said the UN Secretary General must also understand the complications of the steps taken by India in Assam to deprive the Muslim population of Indian nationality as well as the recently passed citizenship act.

He said this could have unprecedented consequences and impact on the refugee population. He said the world must step in to control the situation as Pakistan is bound to suffer because of these Indian steps.

He said Pakistan is already hosting millions of Afghan refugees and it will not be able to accommodate more refugees.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has hailed the generosity demonstrated by different countries including Pakistan and Turkey for hosting millions of refugees.

He also addressed the First Global Refugee Forum in Geneva on Tuesday.
