Representatives of several far-right groups had allegedly called for ethnic cleansing of minorities in the country, especially its 200 million-strong Muslim population. In a series of posts, Imran said the NDA government’s inaction had emboldened extremist Hindutva groups operating under BJP‘s patronage to call for a “genocide of minorities in the country”.
The anti-Modi tweet storm coincides with Imran’s government facing a backlash at home over serious administrative and financial failures.
“The extremist ideology of the ruling BJP government was behind the provocations against India’s minorities,” PM Imran said. “Under the extremist ideology of the BJP Modi govt, all religious minorities in India have been targeted with impunity by Hindutva groups.”
He urged the international community to take notice of the calls and act against them. “The extremist agenda of the Modi government is a real and present threat to peace in our region,” Imran said.
