ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi  has said that the BJP-led Indian government is playing a dangerous game and destroying peace of the whole region, just to win the upcoming general elections.

Talking to a private news channel, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Pakistan is not in favour of war or damaging peace of the region but in case of any Indian aggression, we reserve the right to defend our motherland.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the Foreign Office has briefed ambassadors of twenty to twenty two countries on an Indian plan to launch an aggression against Pakistan.

He said the diplomats have been requested to play their role in de-escalating current tense situation between the two nuclear states.

Responding to a question, he said the Islamic world would stand with Pakistan in case of any misadventure by India.

The Foreign Minister said Bharatiya Janata Party has committed to revoke Article 370 of the Indian Constitution after coming to power again.

He said after the Pulwama incident, violations of human rights in Indian occupied Kashmir have increased. He said if this happens it will spark fire in the Indian occupied Kashmir.

He said that international community should understand that the situation in the Indian Occupied Kashmir has deteriorated and it should think about the promises being made by Narender Modi in the elections.

While talking about the political scenario in the country, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said it is their discretion if Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Asif Ali Zardari want to launch any movement.

He said that there is no dictatorship in Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and there is open atmosphere in the PTI and there is freedom of expression and courage of hearing and understanding in the party, saying that there is open-heartedness in Prime Minister Imran Khan and he hears. He said that positive debate always remains in the party. Mahmood Qureshi said that they (PTI) will make the situation as the best which is being seen now as the worst in the country.
