Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan says he has warned the international community that India could launch an attack on Pakistani-held Kashmir to divert the attention from human rights abuses in its portion of the disputed Himalayan region.
In a speech at a rally in Islamabad, Imran Khan says his country will give a “befitting response” to the government of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi if it attacks Pakistan.
He described Modi as a “fascist” and equated him with Adolf Hitler, saying he fears a “genocide of Muslims in Kashmir.”
Similar rallies were held across Pakistan on Friday.
Tensions between Pakistan and India have increased since Aug. 5, when New Delhi downgraded Kashmir’s autonomy.
