MUZAFFARABAD: Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Friday warned India not to mistake the economy of Pakistan, which may be weak, with the defense capabilities of the country.

Sheikh Rashid made the remarks while addressing a press conference in the Central Press Club of Muzaffarabad.

The minister said Indian PM Modi was arresting Kashmiri leaders with impunity and had revoked the constitutional autonomy of the occupied valley on August 5 with a proper plan.

Sheikh Rashid also said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had lost his sanity and time had come for Pakistan to give the aggressor a befitting reply.

The minister reaffirmed the commitment of the government to stand with the people occupied Kashmir in their time of need, saying the premier would also do the same when he addresses the UN later this month.

Sheikh Rashid highlighted the Hindu nationalism of Modi, saying the Indian premier had not nominated a single Muslim to a seat in the Indian parliament during elections.

He added that the controversial citizenship list issued by the Indian state of Assam, which had left million of Muslims stateless and immigrants, was a part of the Hindu-supremacist agenda of the Indian PM Modi.

Sheikh Rashid said Prime Minister Imran Khan will become the voice of oppressed Kashmiri people during his address to the UN General Assembly session to be held on 27th of this month in New York.

He said Pakistan will continue to support its Kashmiri brethren till last drop of blood.

Sheikh Rashid said Modi has declared war against Islam and the Muslims. He said the Hurriyat leaders in Occupied Kashmir are under house detention and Muslim daughters are being abducted there.

He appreciated the role of media over highlighting the Kashmir issue in a befitting manner and supporting Kashmiris in their just struggle for right to self-determination.
