Indian forces have turned Kashmir in prison: Prime Minister Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the Kashmir problem was the main impediment to trade cooperation between Pakistan and India.

In an interview with the Belgian VRT channel, he said Indian forces turned the entire occupied Kashmir valley into a prison, Radio Pakistan reported.

The prime minister regretted that India denies cashmere their fair right to self-determination in accordance with UN resolutions and promises made by Indian leaders.

Imran Khan said he doesn’t see much hope from the current Modi government in India to solve the Kashmir problem because it has an extremist RSS ideology.

He said the founding fathers of RSS were inspired by Hitler’s Arian racist philosophy and that is why they put eight million cashmere, who are Muslim, in an open prison.

The prime minister, however, hoped that in the future an Indian government and strong leadership would like the Kashmir dispute to be resolved.
