President Dr Arif Alvi has said that due to Hindutva ideology, Indian society is heading towards destruction.
While giving an exclusive interview to Pakistan Television (PTV) on Tuesday that there is a continuation of long-running measures in support of anti-Muslim and anti-minority policies, including conversions.
The President said that the Indian Supreme Court at the Godhra incident and the Babri Masjid acted in a highly discriminatory manner.
Pakistan is pursuing a balanced foreign policy which does not lean in any direction.
He said that RSS became a violent organization because its founders like Golwalkar always appreciated the role of Hitler and the issue of Hindu nationalism was activated in India.
The President referred to Khushwant Singh’s book The End of India, written in 2002, in which the author said, “India is going to the dogs.”
He added that India’s secular status has changed, while India was heading in the wrong direction by targeting minorities.
He added that Indian society and institutions are prejudiced against minorities because only one or two per cent of Muslim representatives can participate in the Indian Parliament.
The President referred to the post-riot book by MJ Akbar, an Indian politician, in which he mentioned that The aim was to economically deprive Muslims in India. The President said that all this is continuing in India while Pakistan has learned from its past history of three decades and moved forward.
He further said that India was falling into its own trap. All these hateful policies of the BJP-led government would prove to be as damaging as what is happening to farmers and Sikhs.
The new citizenship law and the Assam Act will largely affect Bengali Muslims living in India. He said that when being a minority in the society was presented as a crime and they were isolated, it would be tantamount to their genocide. The President said that India was building walls and saying that there would be no dialogue with Pakistan because of Kashmir.
The president said that India unconstitutionally and unilaterally repealed Articles 370 and 35A of the Indian Constitution and revoked the special status of Indian-occupied Kashmir.
He said that Indian atrocities and cruelty and barbarism in Indian-administered Kashmir were a clear manifestation of the ongoing barbaric subjugation of the Kashmiri people.
These tactics of subjugation are based on changes in laws, settlement of the land, use of pellet guns and punishment of people and rape and murder of women.
The President said that in this scenario, Pakistan was constantly demanding India to open the occupied valley to the world so that the world could know what was going on there.
President Dr Arif Alvi said that as President he was disappointed that international organizations were more attracted to India because of trade and financial interests.
He expressed confidence that the newly elected US President would play his role in resolving the Kashmir dispute.
