Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Says India Is Increasingly Becoming A Hindu Supremacist State
India did not help
In the interview given to France 24 in New York, many things have been said on which India has protested. Bilawal was asked, ‘Did you take any help from India or was there any offer?’ The answer given by Bilawal on this was quite controversial. Bilawal said, ‘No.’ Bilawal further said in the same reply, ‘We have a long and complicated history with India. India, unfortunately, today is not the secular India that its founders and ancestors promised to its citizens.
Bilawal further said, ‘This country is now becoming a Hindu-dominant country where Christian and Muslim minorities are under threat.’ After this he mentioned Jammu and Kashmir in his reply. He said, Muslims are being persecuted not only in India but also in its disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which is illegally occupied.
Article 370 mentioned
In this interview, Bilawal also mentioned about the abrogation of Article 370 from the state in August 2019. Bilawal said that India took some such steps and took such action which made mutual contact very difficult for Pakistan. He said that the Indian government is changing the boundaries of the disputed area by ignoring the proposals of the United Nations and the United Nations Security Council.
He said that India is trying to change its demographics and in such a situation, there is no way for Pakistan to increase connectivity. In the words of Bilawal, ‘It is absolutely casteism, fascism and Islamophobic policy that has triggered a reaction not only in Kashmir but across India.’
