Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan will not stay silent, allowing the fascist Modi government to round up Muslims to be beaten and killed.
He took to his twitter handle and wrote:

“Pakistan will not stay silent, allowing the fascist Modi government to round up Muslims to be beaten and killed. To have their nationalities stripped, their livelihoods robbed, their demography changed and their future insecure.”

Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s statement came after United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said countering anti-Muslim hate and Islamophobia was his “top priority” and he “fully agrees” with the estimation that it could pose a menace to international peace and security.

The UN chief gave the statement recently at the virtual meeting of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states at the UN in answer to the comments from Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UN Munir Akram, who drew his attention to the rising cases of anti-Muslim violence and Islamophobia in India and urged him to adopt a more focused and consistent system-wide approach to fully tackle the menace.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said “Pakistan had consistently urged the United Nations (UN) and the OIC to condemn Modi’s Hindutva supremacist ideology with constant Islamophobia and violence and regional uncertainty perpetuated.”

The foreign minister welcomed the UN chief’s agreement on the need to counter Islamophobia and OIC-IPHRC’s earlier censure.

“We will not stand by and let another Gujarat happen (riots took place in Indian Gujarat killing hundreds of Muslims in 2002). To counter rising cases of anti-Muslim violence & Islamophobia, Pakistan has been supported by the (OIC) to initiate working group with the (OIC Permanent Observer Mission to the UN) for collective action.”

Earlier Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has slammed his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi for illegal annexation in Occupied Kashmir. Prime Minister Imran Khan said he has been warning the world about India’s continuing efforts to find a pretext for a false flag operation targeting Pakistan.
