New York, September 27: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, speaking at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), raised the issue of Islamophobia and Kashmir at the international forum. Muslim women have been asked to take off their Hijab in other countries. A woman can take off her clothes in other countries but cannot put on Hijab. Why? Because certain leaders have equated Islam with terrorism." PM Modi vs Imran Khan at UNGA Today: Indian, Pakistani PMs to Speak One After Another, Likely to Clash Over Kashmir Issue.
Blaming 9/11 for Islamophobia, Imran said that, "there is no radical Islam. There is only one Islam. What msg do they send to the world?" Imran Khan also said that "marginalisation leads to radicalisation".
Khan added that there would be another Pulwama-type terror attack in Kashmir after the Indian government lifts the curfew and then entire blame would be on Pakistan. The Pakistan PM also hit out at the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). He said that the ideology of RSS is inspired by Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. Khan also accused the RSS of ethnic cleansing of Muslims.
During his speech, the Pakistan PM termed India’s claims of destroying Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror camps in Balakot as a lie. He even said, “PM Modi’s election campaign is based on a lie.” Khan even stated that there are no terror camps inside Pakistan’s territory. He claimed that the government planted a billion trees after coming to power last year. Khan also said that Islamophobia is dividing the world.
