【Rawalpindi】Prime Minister Imran Khan on March 02 highlighted the threat to peace and security posed by the Indian leadership’s belligerent rhetoric and aggressive actions on the ground, as Prince Khalid bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Deputy Minister of Defence of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, called on him here.
During the meeting, views were exchanged on bilateral relations as well as regional and international issues. Imran stressed the importance of international community, including the Muslim world, playing its role in preventing the ongoing atrocities and promoting a peaceful solution of the Jammu & Kashmir dispute. In this regard, Saudi Arabia's role as an important Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member was also discussed.
The prime minister also highlightedIndia's discriminatory Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and underscored that the Indian government was engaged in systematic efforts to discriminate against, marginalize and disenfranchise minorities, particularly Muslims. The recent targeted killings of Muslims in New Delhi and desecration of their places of worship is a matter of grave concern not only for the Muslim world, but also for the international community.
The prime minister underlined that the RSS-inspired BJP government's "Hindutva" ideology was squeezing the Kashmiris in IOJ&K on the one hand and India's minorities on the other hand, which needed to be prevented by the world community.
