Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has accused New Delhi of committing war crimes against Muslims in the Indian-administered Kashmir under the cover of the coronavirus pandemic.

India committing war crimes in Kashmir under cover of coronavirus pandemic: PM Imran KhanIn a post on his Twitter account on Thursday, Khan said the administration of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was attempting to change the demography of Kashmir and continued massacre across the Muslim-majority Himalayan region.

He urged the international community to take notice of the crimes in violation of the 4th Geneva Convention and international humanitarian laws.

"Under cover of COVID19 global pandemic, the Modi Govt with its fascist ... ideology continues its war crimes in IOJK," Khan said in reference to Indian controlled Kashmir.

Khan added that India "violates the Fourth Geneva Convention by continuing its genocide of Kashmiris: & by attempting to change the demography in Occupied Jammu & Kashmir," he added.

Khan also stated that Kashmir is recognized as a disputed territory by the United Nations and the world has a responsibility to take note of Indian war crimes there.


Last year, Khan had warned in a speech that the issue of Kashmir could lead to a nuclear war between Islamabad and New Delhi if the international community failed to intervene.

Tensions have been soaring for months in the wake of Modi's move to strip India's portion of Kashmir of its autonomy and bring it under direct rule.
