Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday expressed worry that Pulwama-like attacks can follow the revocation of the special status for Jammu and Kashmir, which could trigger a conventional war between Pakistan and India.
“This will be a war that no one will win and the implications will be global,” he warned while addressing a rare joint sitting of Parliament that was convened to discuss the Kashmir situation.
“What they did in Kashmir is in accordance with their ideology They have a racist ideology, Theirs is the ideology which killed Mahatma Gandhi. If the world does not act and does not uphold its own laws then we will not be responsible.” Imran Khan said.
“We will fight it at every forum including the UN Security Council,” he said, adding that Pakistan also plans to take the matter to the International Court of Justice.
“When I first reached out to India, they expressed concerns that there were militant outfits operating from Pakistan. I told (Narendra) Modi that after the grave and painful tragedy of the Army Public School massacre, all our political parties had resolved to never let the territory of Pakistan be used for terrorist activities.
“We have two options: either we hide or we take decisive action. Hiding is not an option, we must take decisive action,” he said.
