LAHORE: Federal Minister for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Senator Pervaiz Rashid on Sunday said atrocities in Occupied Kashmir would isolate India internationally.
He was talking to the media after attending All Pakistan Music Conference here at Alhamra. He said “Oppressors are left isolated in this world.
India will have to stop oppression, if it has to avert international isolation.” Pervaiz Rashid said that how could India talk about isolation of Pakistan?
The minister said that New Delhi should learn a lesson of peace from Europe and Association of Southeast Asian
Nations (ASEAN). He said that New Delhi would remain restless if unrest persists in Srinagar.
Pervaiz Rashid said India should stop dreaming about unrest in Balochistan because there was not a single pleasing
voice for Indian government.
“Pakistan Zindabad slogans are being raised in Balochistan and the Pakistan’s biggest flag is waved there on August 14,” he added.
The Information Minister said that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project would not only benefit both countries but it would also benefit the entire world. Thus, Indian opposition to the project means opposition to the whole world, he added.
He said that Russia and China are the big military and economic powers of the region. He said Pakistan wanted to
have better relations with both China and Russia to restore peace in the region.
Responding to a question regarding Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s protest march, he said Imran Khan had a well-honed
and unprecedented talent of shooting himself in the foot when it comes to politics.
The minister said that there would be a political gala on September 30 but the venue would be empty on October 01.
He said that PTI had continued negative politics and only PML-N’s junior team would give answer to Imran Khan.
Commenting on threats to the Pakistani artists from India, he said good melodious voices and songs would bring
peace, otherwise, voices of mourning would be the fate of the region.
“The government is working for the revival of cinemas and arrangements are being made for the artists,” he added.
He said that Punjab chief Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif had waived duties on cinemas with an aim to revive
local film industry.
Talking to a TV channel, he said that India has been threatening war but in reality, it cannot afford it.
He said India was trying to mislead the world by creating hysteria of war. -APP
