ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Pakistan Imran Khan launched a series of tweets, criticising his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi over the latter’s silence on the calls for ethnic cleansing of minorities in India. Mr Khan hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) questioning whether the party supported the calls for genocide.
Mr Khan also said that it was time for the international community to take notice of the genocidal calls being made against minorities in India.
The continuing silence of Modi govt on the call at an extremist Hindutva summit in Dec for genocide of minorities in India, especially the 200 mn Muslim community, begs the question whether the BJP govt supports this call. It is high time international community took note & acted

Mr Khan called out the Modi-led government over its atrocities against all religious minorities and said that the Modi regime was a threat to peace in the South Asian region. The tweets come in the wake of a “hate speech conclave” organised by Yati Narsinghanand in the third week of December. The Hindutva leaders, at the conclave, had vowed to target the Muslims in particular to turn India into a Hindu state.
