Pakistan rejects Indian RSS Chief’s ‘provocative’ remarks

Pakistan on Saturday completely rejected the highly provocative and irresponsible remarks by Mohan Bhagwat, chief of India’s Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), calling for “undoing” of the partition.

“This is not the first time that the RSS chief has publicly indulged in such delusional thinking and historical revisionism,” the Foreign Office spokesperson said in a statement.

He said that the world was witness to the systematic usurpation of the rights of minorities, especially Muslims, in India and the unabated repression of Kashmiris in IIOJK.

He said Pakistan had repeatedly highlighted the threat posed to regional peace and stability by the toxic mix of the extremist ‘Hindutva’ ideology (Hindu Rashtra) and expansionist foreign policy (Akhand Bharat) being pursued by the ruling RSS-BJP dispensation in India.

The reckless misadventures of India, including in February 2019, that seriously imperiled regional peace and stability are also in front of the world, he added.

He said Pakistan had consistently opposed India’s hegemonic impulses and demonstrated a firm resolve to thwart any aggressive designs.
