Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif called Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi an “elected terrorist” during an interview to Geo Tv.
Asif in the interview mentioned Modi as “elected terrorist who has the blood of Muslims of Gujarat on his hands”, referring to the 2002 Godhra riots and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) a “terrorist party” during an interview to Geo TV.
Asif in the interview further said, “Sushma Swaraj has accused us (Pakistan) of exporting terrorism. (However) one terrorist (in India) is the country's prime minister himself."
He further added that India is being "ruled by a terrorist party - the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh)", Asif went on to say.
The foreign minister added that Muslims were being killed in India in the guise of cow protection.
Asif added, “What can be said about the country that elects a terrorist as prime minister.”
When the host suggested that one cannot generalise, Asif mentioned that BJP won the Uttar Pradesh elections with full majority only because of support from ‘communal upper-caste Hindus.’
The foreign minister also denied the recent reports that Pakistan had recieved a proposal from Afghanistan to swap former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadav for the Peshawar school attacker currently booked in Afghanistan Jail.
