Srinagar: Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif has called Prime Minister Narendra Modi an “elected terrorist” who has the “blood of Muslims of Gujarat on his hands”, referring to the 2002 Godhra riots. He also called the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) a “terrorist party”.
Asif made the remarks during an interview to journalist Hamid Mir on Geo TV’s show Capital Talk on Monday.
“What can we say about a country that elects a terrorist [as prime minister],” he said on the show. The Pak minister added that Muslims were being killed in India in the guise of cow protection, and that Muslims, Dalits and Christians were all “fair game” in India.
The Pak minister’s comments come days after verbal exchanges between the two countries at the United Nations. India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had described Pakistan as “the greatest exporter of terrorism” in her address at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly.
