Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday compared the BJP’s policies to dictator Adolf Hitler’s “Nazi Aryan Supremacy.”

He warned that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s actions would go beyond Kashmir and eventually target Indian Muslims and neighbouring Pakistan.

“Attempt is to change demography of Kashmir through ethnic cleansing. Question is: Will the world watch & appease as they did Hitler at Munich?” Khan tweeted.

Ram Madhav, a senior BJP leader, hit back.

“Threat to democratic world is from Pak-sponsored Jehadi terror, not from India,” Madhav tweeted.

Pakistan said on Saturday that it had gained China’s support to take a motion to the UN Security Council condemning the Indian decision to change the status of Jammu and Kashmir.

Islamabad has not received much support from other major nations, however, suggesting its odds of success at the UN were slim.

Khan on Sunday telephoned Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as part of his outreach to world leaders on Kashmir, his office said.
