Islamabad: The Pakistani Prime Minister, Imran Khan, has once again threatened of nuclear conflict between India and Pakistan. This time his war rhetoric is in retaliation against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which envisages to give citizenship to minorities of Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. Imran Khan made this statement while speaking at the Global Refugee Forum at Geneva.
Touching on the recent issue of CAA he said, “I want to tell the world that they should be aware of the biggest impending refugee crisis (in South Asia).”
He added, “We in Pakistan are not just worried that there’ll be a refugee crisis; we are worried that this could lead to a conflict. A conflict between two nuclear-armed countries.”
Imran Khan also spoke about India’s decisionto revoke Article 370 by saying that the world must take notice of the situation in Kashmir. He asked the world community to put pressure on India to stop the illegal activity.
