PM denounces Indian citizenship legislation contrary to int’l laws
December 10, 2019

Prime Minister Imran Khan has strongly condemned Indian Lok Sabha citizenship legislation as contrary to all norms of international human rights law and bilateral agreements with Pakistan.

In a tweet on Tuesday, he said it is part of the RSS Hindu Rashtra design of expansionism propagated by the fascist Modi government.

Meanwhile, in a statement, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal dubbed the Indian legislation regarding citizenship right to minorities excluding Muslims as a glaring attempt to interfere in neighbouring countries with malafide intent.

He said the legislation that offers Indian nationality to the nationals of Pakistan and two other South Asian countries except Muslims is premised on a falsehood and is in complete violation international covenants on elimination of all forms of discrimination based on religion or belief.

Dr Muhammad Faisal said the Indian legislation has also, once again, exposed the hollowness of the claims to secularism and democracy.
