Muzaffarabad, May 05, 2020 (PPI-OT): Sardar Masood Khan, President Azad Jammu and Kashmir, replying to Indian Prime Minister’s accusation at the Non-Aligned Movement moot that “some countries are spreading ‘other deadly viruses’ such as terrorism, fake news and doctored videos”; said that these allegations are what you (Modi) and the RSS specializes in. He added that “no one would dare poach on your territory”.
While commenting on the recent remarks of Narendra Modi through numerous tweets from his official Twitter handle, the AJK President said that the current fascist regime can come to an end if a truly democratic force rises in India. He said that this rising fascism in a new garb projected by the current BJP-RSS the government must be stopped in its tracks.
President Masood Khan in another tweet while responding to India’s strong protest with Pakistan over moves to hold elections in Gilgit-Baltistan said that “India should vacate Occupied Jammu and Kashmir without caveats and qualifications. The people and the land are not part of the Indian Federation. End the occupation forthwith”. He said that as an occupier it (India) has occupied an internationally recognized disputed territory and has illegally called it an “integral part” of the Indian Union.
