MULTAN: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said Modi’s policies for neighbouring countries could escalate more tensions in the region.
Talking to media today in Multan after offering Eid prayers, Qureshi said that Pakistan has categorically explained and shattered the wily designs harbored by India to force the region into instability.
He said Pakistan is a peace-loving country and desires peace in the region which can be seen by its role in the Afghan peace process.
Qureshi said Modi-led fascist government in India is preparing to begin construction work on Ram Mandir in Ayodhya and Pakistan condemns this act.
The foreign minister said that Youm-e-Istehsal is being observed on Wednesday across the country to give a clear message to oppressed people in Indian Illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir that they are not alone.
He said that Pakistan will continue to extend moral, political and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri people in their just struggle for freedom and right to self-determination.
The minister further said that Mosques have been closed in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and the entire political leadership of Kashmir been detained.
Qureshi said Pakistan rejected India’s unilateral steps on August 5 last year in occupied Jammu and Kashmir and China has also raised objections over them.
This Eid-ul-Azha is different from the previous Eids and negligence on the festival could throw away all the hard work against the novel COVID-19, Qureshi added.
He also urged the nation to look after the poor and generously extend their charity towards daily wage workers who are badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
