Bloodshed feared after India lifts curfew in IoK
PM Khan fears bloodshed is expected in IoK after India lifts curfew. He says India has made eight million Kashmiris captive for the last 54 days as the entire valley is locked down. “I am not hurling war threat to the world but am forewarning possibility of any misadventure if the world powers don’t intervene into the occupied valley,” he said while addressing the ceremony of Asia Society and answering questions of the participants in New York. The premier said in case of war in the region, an increase in crude oil prices will enhance poverty. In an interview with MSNBC, an American TV, PM Khan said that no sane person can think of a nuclear war. “I think that there is need to stop the affairs headings to the dangerous direction. I fear a massacre soon after lifting of curfew in Occupied Kashmir. For this reason, I am demanding mediation of Trump,” he said. Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the condition will go out of control if the matter was not intervened. “I have visited the United Nations to apprise the international community of the threat,” he said. The prime minister said that the war is not a solution to any issue and for this reason, he is opposed to it.
