General Official News

Islamabad, September 28, 2019 (PPI-OT): As Prime Minister Imran Khan delivered an impassioned speech at the United Nations, albeit one that ran over the allotted 15 minutes, Twitterati in Pakistan shared their views on his remarks, which ranged from Kashmir and Islamophobia to climate change and corruption by the elite. The highlight of his speech, which ran for over 45 minutes, was Kashmir. In strong words, the premier reminded the world that if not paid attention to, India’s actions in occupied Kashmir would lead to a bloodbath.

“Once the curfew is lifted, Kashmiris will be out in the streets. And what will the 900,000 soldiers do? They will shoot them,” said the premier, without mincing any words. AFP reporter Issam Ahmed was of the opinion that the prime minister highlighted the Kashmir issue “very forcefully and got several rounds of applause (not clear how much was the Pak delegation but I think at least some were others, Modi didn’t get any)”.
