While talking about the Kashmir issue Khan urged that India must lift the curfew. He reminded the United Nation of Its resolutions on Kashmir and how it was the organization’s responsibility to implement them.
He highlighted the fact that countries of the world were not condemning India’s brutality in Kashmir only because they feared losing access to a market of 1.3bn. The world was just choosing material well being over justice and humanity by ignoring the sufferings of millions of Kashmiris trapped in their state since Indian government-imposed curfew to suppress the resistance.
