The Prime minister of Pakistan Imran Khan said Today world is facing the catastrophic issues of climate change, Islam phobia, corruption besides highlighting Indian atrocities in Occupied Kashmir, the world leaders should unite to curb the problems. Pakistan plundered by the ruling elites, we will emerge again as strong nation.

Prime Minister Imran Khan addressed the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). Khan urged the world leaders to rise to the challenge and take steps like controlling deforestation, plastic and air pollution to save the planet.

PM Imran Khan was of the view that the world’s top economies should come forward to help the developing countries tackle the ever-rising threat of climate change.

Pakistan’s premier lamented that one of the major issues developing countries face is corruption by their ruling elite and how these corrupt elements find tax havens and money laundering opportunities in developing countries.

“When my party came to power, we saw that some of our ruling elite had sent millions abroad and bought properties in other countries but to recover this wealth became a Himalayan task”, said Khan.

The PM urged the world to make laws to stop what he termed the plunder of the developing world by the corrupt ruling elite.

“Why are these tax havens there in the first place,” asked Imran Khan.

Imran Khan told the world body that his government tried to approach India for talks before this move but the Indian side’s refusal was the factor talks couldn’t move forward.

“We thought it was because India’s ruling party (BJP) was running an election campaign and wanted anti-Pakistan rhetoric for its success, so we backed off, then Pulwama attack happened in which a Kashmir youth attacked Indian forces, but they blamed it on Pakistan without taking into account what led a Kashmir youngster opted to become a suicide bomber,” said the PM.

The PM added that the Indian government not only attempted an airspace violation on February 27 but Narendra Modi also bolstered the issue.

He was of the view that Modi follows the Hindu-supremacist party RSS’s ideology, which was behind Gandhi’s killing and the current wave of mob lynchings in India, is the reason now that Muslims and other minorities are living as second class citizens in India.

The Prime minister Imran Khan said that on August 5, the Modi government took a step which closed all doors of dialogue between the two nuclear-armed neighbors i.e. the illegal annexation of Occupied Kashmir.

India is treating the Kashmiris worse than animals, they are being locked in their houses, there is a complete curfew, said Imran Khan.

Khan urged the world to take note of Indian atrocities in Kashmir for the valley is nearing a bloodbath.

“If the Indian government lifts the curfew in Kashmir, the people will react and then Indian army will unleash a bloodbath, should the world keep silent,” asked the PM.

He maintained that it is the United Nations which, through its resolutions, promised the right of self-determination to people of Kashmir and now should take some action lest the two nuclear-armed neighbour go to war.
