Imran Khan Broke in On World's Silence on Kashmir Situation

Pakistan Observed 15 August, the India's Independence Day as "Black Day".

Prime Minister Imran Khan asked the international community to stay in "silence" on the Kashmir situation and advised that "if ethnic cleansing of Muslims takes place in the region, there would be severe repercussions".

The India Independence Day was noted on Thursday as a "Black Day" by Pakistan, despite increased conflicts between the two neighbors following New Delhi's decision to cancel Article 370 which gives the Jammu and Kashmir unique status.

In his tweet, Khan wrote, "In Indian-Occupied Kashmir, 12 days of curfew, presence of extra troops in an already heavily militarised occupied territory... complete communication blackout -- with the example of (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi's earlier ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Gujarat,".

"Will (the) world silently witness another Srebrenica-type massacre and ethnic cleansing of Muslims in IoK," he asked. "I want 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 radicalisation and cycles of violence."
