India backing ISIS to spread chaos, sectarianism in Pakistan: PM

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan India is hell-bent on destabilising Pakistan and is backing ISIS in the region to spread chaos through fanning sectarianism in the country.

Interacting with digital media publishers and broadcasters in Islamabad, he said there will be no talks with India unless it restores Article 370 of its Constitution, reviving Kashmir’s special status.

PM Imran Khan said Pakistan’s security agencies have successfully preempted Indian plots to fan sectarianism. He said the time will prove that the Modi government is more catastrophic for India than any other adversary. He added that Pakistan has good relations with all the other countries, including the United States, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

The prime minister said Pakistan is at its defining moment with the government having the option either to surrender before the corrupt leaders or stand against them. He said just for sake of protecting their looted wealth, the opposition leaders blackmailed the government during its struggle for economic uplift, anti-COVID operations and FATF legislation linking their support with abolition NAB laws.

Calling social media a force with people yet to understand its real power, the prime minister said for the social media activists, it was essential to know and apprise people correctly about the government’s narrative.

Replying to a question, the prime minister said following the departure of US from the region after the Afghan war, the militant groups started sectarianism and such groups immensely damaged the country particularly by targeting Shia and Hazara community.

PM Imran Khan said the previous governments also ignored the development of Balochistan but the incumbent government was the first to focus on the socio-economic uplift of the province.

Imran Khan said the government is going to launch an ambitious program ‘no one goes to bed hungry’ under Ehsaas initiative for which information technology is being used to compile data of backward areas. He said the government is also intensively working on a uniform syllabus to integrate the nation.

He added that due to the prudent policies of the government Pakistan is economically rising in construction and export sectors and has made repayment of $20 billion foreign debt.
