Srinagar: Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif has said that the Modi government in Indian was hampering the relations between Pakistan and India.
“We would like to have a good relationship with the Indians, but I don’t think there is a chance of any improvement for relationship with the present religious extremist government in Delhi,” Pakistan Today reported quoting Asif while speaking a current affairs programme of TRT World.
When asked if Modis’ government is religious extremist, he remarked: “Modi’s government what they did in Gujarat when Modi was the chief minister he killed, he massacred over 2,000 Muslims over there. He’s massacring Muslims in Kashmir also. So there is actually a genocide and ethnic cleansing of Muslims going on.”
The Pak foreign minister also said alleged that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India is “a religious extremist movement.”
Asif was also asked about Indian claims that Pakistan is “obsessed” with it. Responding to this, Asif said that it is not an obsession. “India is a danger to our security, we must be vigilant. This is the bedrock of our policy.”
