When asked about the controversial Indian citizenship bill, Faisal said that Pakistan and other regional countries have condemned it. He said this act of India is driven by a toxic mix of extremist Hindutva ideology and hegemonic ambitions in the region.

Voicing anxiety over the situation in Kashmir, Faisal said the humanitarian nightmare is deteriorating in the valley with extended military lockdown and complete communications blackout. Faisal said India should quickly restore internet and mobile phone services, release all the prisoners and remove all the draconian laws. He said India should allow international media and human rights observers to visit Jammu and Kashmir to independently observe the situation there.
