Pakistan Heaps Praises On Iran, Turkey For Speaking-Up Against India

Published

on

Pakistan PM Imran Khan has appreciated Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for speaking up against what Islamabad terms as  “oppression and massacre” of Muslims in India.

Khan’s tweet came in response to a tweet by Ayatollah Khamenei in which he urged India to “confront extremist Hindus” and “stop the massacre of Muslims”, adding to the international fallout over deadly violence targeting Muslims in the capital Delhi.

At least 53 people have been killed and hundreds injured in the worst communal riots in the Indian capital triggered the new citizenship law.

“The hearts of Muslims all over the world are grieving over the massacre of Muslims in India,” Khamenei said in a tweet in English, just days after Delhi reprimanded Iran’s foreign minister for commenting on the same issue.

“The government of India should confront extremist Hindus & their parties & stop the massacre of Muslims in order to prevent India’s isolation from the world of Islam,” he added. The tweet was accompanied by the hashtag #IndianMuslimslnDanger.

“Iran condemns the wave of organised violence against Indian Muslims,” Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif had tweeted on Monday, in response to which New Delhi summoned the Islamic Republic’s ambassador and lodged a protest.

“We do not expect such comments from a country like Iran,” foreign ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar said in a statement later. The Citizenship Amendment Act provides non-Muslims from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan a fast track to Indian citizenship.

Earlier, Pakistan PM Imran Khan held the RSS and the BJP responsible for the communal riot in Delhi. Accusing the BJP government of targeting 200 million Muslims in India, Khan appealed to the international community to come to the rescue of Indian Muslims.
