Prime Minister Imran Khan says whether the world will silently witness another Srebrenica-type massacre and ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Occupied Kashmir.
In a tweet, he said he wants to warn the international community that if it allows this to happen, it will have severe repercussions and reactions in the Muslim world setting off radicalization and cycles of violence.
The Prime Minister added that in Occupied Kashmir, twelve days of curfew, presence of extra troops in an already heavily militarized occupied territory, sending in of RSS goons, and complete communication blackout are similar to the example of Modi’s earlier ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Gujarat.

The Indian authorities have been maintaining a strict clampdown in the valley since August 5, after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led Hindu nationalist government abolished the Indian constitution’s Article 370, which granted special status to occupied Kashmir.
The premier was referring to the 1995 Srebrenica massacre – also known as the Srebrenica genocide – in which thousands of Bosniaks had been killed by Serb military and paramilitary forces in and around the town of Srebrenica during the Bosnian war.
