Islamabad, January 04, 2021 (PPI-OT): Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says India has buried the concept of secularism owing to its Hindutva policy. In a statement on Monday, he said the international media is openly criticizing India. He said the minorities are being treated in discrimination in India and farmers are also protesting there.

He said Pakistan has put forth a dossier before the world community, exposing the Indian terrorism with evidence. He said Pakistan will continue to raise the Kashmir issue at every forum and the movement of self-determination will succeed. The Foreign Minister said we have also written letters to the UN Secretary General and Human Rights Commissioner in Geneva, demanding free and fair trial to all the political prisoners in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and their release at the earliest.

Referring to the PDM’s rally in Bahawalpur, the Foreign Minister questioned in whose era the funds of South Punjab were spent unfairly somewhere else. He said PTI has taken two big decisions in its tenure regarding South Punjab; one was devolution of power to the grassroots level and the second was allocating special funds for development and construction of South Punjab.
