“Our army bombing people in Balochistan, how can we bomb our own people, is there any army you are bombing? It is our own people with their children, but it is important to understand are we just bombing our people, just think about the immorality of bombing villages with the women and children,” Khan said in the video. “You are talking about six million people in the tribal areas that are being bombed, their economy has been destroyed, they are living in refugee camps, how are they surviving, and what about the extra-judicial killing that is going on,” he added.
The Pakistan Prime Minister also said that crime against humanity is going on in Balochistan.
The video went viral after senior Jammu and Kashmir police officer Imtiyaz Hussain slammed Khan for alleging ‘genocide’ in the state. Responding to a tweet on Imran’s old video wherein he talks about Pakistan Army excesses in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh and Balochistan, Imtiyaz said the Pakistan PM needs to be educated that there has been no use of the Air Force or artillery in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370 early last month.
Here’s what the J&K Police officer tweeted:
Having admitted what PakistanArmy did in Bangladesh & is doing in Balochistan,FATA,@ImranKhan thinks of our Army also dealing with terrorism same way
Someone educate him,There’s no genocide,no Airforce,Artillery used anywhere here.
Magnitude of Pak proxy war notwithstanding https://t.co/l1f06ZjaTG
