Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has convened a second meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) in three days on Wednesday to discuss the current situation in Kashmir, officials said. The meeting is being held after the meeting of Corps Commanders and joint session of parliament on Tuesday.

The NSC is the highest forum of civil and military top leadership to come together and discuss important matters of national security.

Imran Khan on Tuesday said India's move to revoke Article 370 of the Constitution, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, will create more Pulwama like incidents across the Valley. However, Pakistan will not be responsible for those happenings, the PTI leader added.

"This racism on display by India, stemmed in racial superiority and pride, may create Pulwama type incidents, which will result in quick acceleration of actions and reactions, which will have grave consequences," Khan was quoted as saying. He made the remarks while speaking at the joint session of Parliament this afternoon.

The Indian government on Monday revoked Article 370 which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and proposed that the state be bifurcated into two union territories, Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh, in a bid to tackle head-on the vexatious 72-year-old problem wracking the soul of the nation.

Government in India are involved in mob lynching on the mere supposition of having eaten beef is part and parcel of their racist ideology. This ideology has continued in Indian Occupied Kashmir yesterday".

He said, "The Indian State wishes to change the demography of Kashmir. It is anathema to the Geneva Convention, and to the Indian Constitution itself", adding that it will further fuel the fire in Kashmir.

"India desires ethnic cleansing in Kashmir, along with demographic changes. This will incense the Kashmiris towards retaliation. They are watching their inalienable rights and guarantees taken away by brute force and it will exacerbate Kashmiri resistance and create chaos," Khan went on to claim further.
