Imran Khan warns of possibility of conventional war with India

17 September 2019

Qureshi said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had "even lost the support of pro-government leaders of occupied Kashmir".

Warning that a nuclear-armed country fighting to the death has consequences, Khan said: "If say Pakistan, God forbid, we are fighting a conventional war, we are losing, and if a country is stuck between the choice: either you surrender or you fight 'til death for your freedom, I know Pakistanis will fight to death for their freedom".

Separately on Monday, local media reported Farooq Abdullah, a three-time former chief minister of the state, was detained in state capital Srinagar under the Public Safety Act, a special law that allows for detention of up to two years without trial, and has been criticised by rights groups as draconian.

Meanwhile, Mr Khan also assured residents of Kashmir today that he will expose years-long Indian oppression and human rights violations in the region when he addresses the United Nations general assembly this month.

Several people participated in the protest that coincided with the rally.

After a closed-door meeting, most members of the body had backed India's position that Kashmir is a bilateral issue.

This region is divided between Pakistan and India but both have claimed it. "Whatever report I get from there I will present it before the Supreme Court and probably then they can tell the government if there is a way to arrange for food for these people", he said.

"So that's why we have approached the United Nations, we are approaching every global forum, that they must act right now because this is a potential disaster that would go way beyond the Indian subcontinent", Khan was quoted by Al Jazeera as saying.

The Minister said that irrespective of the fact that whether the other countries supported the Kashmiris or not, Pakistan would continue to raise its voice for their "right to self-determination" and extend them its full support.
