anti-CAA protests

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Wednesday has urged international community to take immediate notice of New Delhi anti-CAA protests.

The use of force by BJP government against the anti-CAA protests have claimed 20 lives so far while more than 190 are injured.

In his statement, the foreign minister said Pakistan has been stating for a long time that Muslims have are facing insecurity in India and are being subjected to torture.

He said more than 20 people have been killed in riots in New Delhi during the last two days and added that buildings, petrol pumps and business centers have been set alight.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said US President Donald Trump’s offer of mediation on Kashmir in the perspective of the critical situation prevailing in the Indian occupied valley is negation of New Delhi’s narrative.

He said the US President has discussed Kashmir issue with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as promised with Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The foreign minister said the US President categorically stated in presence of a big public gathering that Imran Khan is his friend and Pakistan has defeated terrorism pursuing the best strategy.

He said the Indian media tried to use President Trump’s press conference for its own objectives but the US President appreciated Pakistan’s efforts against terrorism.

Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan lambastes Modi regime for targeting innocent Muslims during protest against Anti Citizenship law.

On Wednesday Imran Khan took to twitter and warned nation not to harm minorities in the country.

He wrote, “I want to warn our people that anyone in Pakistan targeting our non-Muslim citizens or their places of worship will be dealt with strictly.

Our minorities are equal citizens of this country.”

Whereas, Muslims death toll from three days of mob violence in Indian Capital rose to 20 on Wednesday.

Clashes between Hindu mobs and Muslims protesting a contentious new citizenship law that fast-tracks naturalization for foreign-born religious minorities of all major faiths in South Asia except Islam escalated.

Many of the injured were treated, casting a shadow over Trump’s flamboyant first state visit to India.
