Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says in India’s so-called democracy, black laws on rise while secularism is on decline.

In a statement on India’s Republic Day today (Tuesday), he said instead of strengthening democracy, more black laws are being implemented across India, as Hindutva ideology emerges stronger with each passing day.

The Foreign Minister said January 26 was observed as ‘Black Day’ by Kashmiris across the world as protest against the heinous policies of BJP government.

He said the amendments in India’s constitution denied the identity of Kashmiris.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said foreign media and international human rights organizations have started exposing the atrocities of Indian forces in the illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

He said instead of tanks, tractors of the protesting farmers were seen at India's Republic Day.

He said India’s economy is further deteriorating due to negative policies of the BJP government.

The Foreign Minister said minorities in today’s India felt insecure, particularly Muslims, Bengalis and Dalits.

He said besides Pakistan, India’s attitude towards other neighbouring countries including Nepal, China and Bangladesh has also worsened.
