Kashmiri struggle is indigenous, even UN recognizes it: Pak PM

Islamabad, Jan 8: While continuing its campaign against India, Pakistani premier Imran Khan wants to teach the country how to deal with Kashmir and its people.
In an exclusive interview with Turkish news agency TRT World, Khan said the struggle in Kashmir is indigenous, which “even the United Nations recognises now”.
Khan also said despite New Delhi’s many attempts, India will never be able to suppress the freedom movement of the people of Kashmir.
Khan made the remarks during an interview saying India was being “brutal” in Kashmir.
This is not the first time a Pakistani leader has brought up the Kashmir issue. It is a political trope to deflect from the real issues plaguing Pakistan. Pakistan’s economy is in a shambles and growth has stagnated.
“Indian brutality in Kashmir in the last year has just been mind-boggling. They have been killing, shooting at boys, blinding them pellet guns. They have killed about 500 people in a year,” Khan said in the interview.
Khan said that the brutality in India was alienating the people of Kashmir, but India was trying to blame Pakistan for this hatred. “and also this hatred against India because while they kill people there is a reaction so what India is doing is palming off this reaction on Pakistan,” he added.
The Pakistan PM said Islamabad wanted dialogue with India but New Delhi has refused the country’s many peace overtures.
In a veiled attack against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in December last year, the Pakistani prime minister had said minorities would be treated as equal citizens in “Naya Pakistan”, “unlike what is happening in India”.
