Imran warns of more violence in Kashmir

Speaking at a joint session of Parliament in Islamabad, Mr. Khan said, “They want to change the demography of Kashmir by revoking Kashmir’s special status. This is against Article 49 of the fourth Geneva Convention; this is a war crime. They have violated all international and local laws for their ideology.”
He said the decision to revoke Article 370 would lead to further violence in the Valley.
“The resistance of the Kashmiri people will increase. This will lead to further crackdown in Kashmir. This will have a reaction: I predict another Pulawama-type incident. They will blame it on Pakistan when everyone knows Pakistan had nothing to do with Pulwama,” he said. The Pakistan Prime Minister warned that India and Pakistan, both nuclear-armed states, could not afford to run such risks. “If they take action against us, we will respond. Then what will happen? Conventional war? Then what? War can go against us or for us. If it goes against us, then what will we do? Two options: one, give up. Two, fight till the last drop of blood. We are not afraid to die. No one will survive as a result of this. I am not using nuclear blackmail here; I am using my common sense. I appeal to the world to do something now; otherwise, the consequences will be too dire.”
He added that Pakistan will take up the issue at international forums.
“We will go to the UN Security Council; we are thinking of going to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) through the UNSC, raise it at the UN General Assembly, we will talk to all heads of states.”
