Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s frustration due to the constant rejection he has received globally over his Kashmir rhetorics has unmasked his true colours. He now openly echoes Pakistan-based terror groups that call for Jihad against India. After returning from the US on Sunday, Imran Khan said that those standing by Kashmiris were doing “jihad” and Pakistan will support Kashmiris even if the world does not.
PM Imran Khan told his party workers at the airport here that whether the world is with the Kashmiris or not, “we are standing with them.”
“It (standing by Kashmiris) is jihad. We are doing it because we want Allah to be happy with us,” Khan stated to his party workers gathered to greet him in Islamabad on his return.
“It is a struggle, do not lose heart when the time is not good. Do not be disappointed as the Kashmiris are looking towards you,” PM Khan said, adding that “Kashmiris would win if the Pakistani people stood by their side.”
The fervent anti-Indian or anti-Hindu narrative in Pakistan is not a new phenomenon. However, the facade of coming across as a ‘Peacenik’ in front of the world, by announcing that the release of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman in a ‘peace gesture’ and the pretence of calling out the ‘jihadi culture’ and ‘jihadi outfits’ in Pakistan, is now out of the closet. His frustration of failing to sell his anti-India narrative has compelled him to exhibit his true self in front of the entire world.
Imran Khan has made the Kashmir issue his life goal ever since India has revoked Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. In fact, his maiden speech at the UN General Assembly which dragged for almost 50 minutes, apart from being a medley of errors was all about Kashmir and his anti-India rants.
Moreover, Imran Khan’s Taliban connections and open support for religious fanatics indulged in terrorist activities is an open secret.
