Left: Narendra Modi, Right: Imran Khan

Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan believes that there will be no solution of Kashmir problem during the present government in India as the  Narendra Modi led government is bent upon “ethnic cleansing of Muslims by following the ideology of Nazis and Hitler.”

“I do not see much hope with this [Indian] government but do see in future that a strong Indian leadership will also want this problem [Kashmir issue] to be resolved,” Khan said in an interview to Belgium-based TV network VRT.

According to Dawn newspaper the Pakistan premier said Kashmiris were promised right of self-determination by India’s leader Jawahar Lal Nehru during the independence movement but India was not giving them this right because it knew if that was given, they [Kashmiris] would opt for Pakistan as Kashmir was a Muslim-majority region.

“I feel that if there will be a strong and clear headed leadership in India this problem would be solved. Every problem has a solution,” he added.

He said the problem in India right now was that [Indian government] has an extremist ideology of RSS, inspired by the Nazis in 30s. “[One of the] the founding fathers of the RSS [Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi], which is now ruling India, is inspired by Hitler…the racist Arian philosophy of Hitler. That is why they have put 80 million Kashmiris, who are Muslims, in an open prison,” Mr Khan said.
