Pakistan needs narrative shift amid rising Hindutva extremism dividing South Asia: Ex-CJCSC

Islamabad, June 01, 2023 (PPI-OT): Former Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) General (Retd) Zubair Mahmood Hayat has said that Pakistan needs a shift in its narrative amid rising Hindutva extremism putting the peace and stability of the region in peril and the Hindu nationalists creating a divide in South Asia. According to Kashmir Media Service, he said this while speaking at the second day of Leaders in Islamabad Business Summit concluding session titled “Changing Narratives”.

He said changing the narrative was a difficult task as its spectrum was very long and complex. “The narrative of the state is a new thing. Earlier in human history, there were different descriptions and narratives of kingdoms,” he said. General (Retd) Zubair Mahmood Hayat maintained that there was no good news coming from our east as the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Hindutva were controlling the state of India.” Nehru’s ideology of secularism was buried in the Hindu Rashtra. We saw the second Akhand Bharat at the opening ceremony of the Indian Assembly. The world will forget Russian atrocities but they will not forget India for its ferocious violence against innocent Kashmiris and Muslims all over India,” he said.

The former CJCSC said, “In India, if a Muslim kills someone, that story goes viral and there is no Hindu story. Pakistan needs a change of narrative in which there was a need to change the narrative trend and its implications,” he said.
