Since August 5th, when the Indian government revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), tensions among Indians and Pakistanis have spilled over to Twitter.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has since accused the Indian government of “ethnic cleansing” of the Muslim-majority region. Khan claimed that revocation of Article 370 was an attempt to “change demography of Kashmir”.
However Indian Muslim politicians have been quick to shut down the religious approach being applied to the conflict. Salman Nizami, a Muslim politician affiliated with Indian National Congress said:
If you are concerned for Muslims. Save Ahmedi’s, Shia’s, Balochi’s killed by Pakistan also Uighur Muslims killed by China. Thanks!
He further questioned why were Pakistanis not concerned about the persecution of Uighur Muslims by China.
Ever seen any Pakistani outside Chinese embassy to protest against the killing & torture of Uighur Muslims by China? NO because China aids Pakistan, so it’s no issue. Tomorrow if India will aid Pakistan, they will stop talking about Kashmir. This is reality of Pakistani Muslims!
