Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said that his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi had made a mistake by revoking the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and accused the international media of ignoring the issue.
Addressing the participants of a “human chain” event held in Islamabad to express “solidarity” with the people of Kashmir, Mr. Khan said the international media was providing full coverage to Hong Kong protests but was ignoring the Kashmir issue.
He said Kashmiris would not accept India’s decision to end Jammu and Kashmir’s special status and would come out in numbers when the restrictions were lifted.
“Narendra Modi committed a mistake, he has played his last card, but the people of Kashmir will never accept it,” he said.
Mr. Khan said that “people of Kashmir have no fear as for seven decades they had been subjected to conditions that eliminated their fear.”
Separately, Mr. Khan tweeted that he was “puzzled” as to how the international media continued to give coverage to the Hong Kong protests but was ignoring the “human rights crisis” in Kashmir.
