Former India captain Sourav Ganguly too has lashed out at Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan for his recent UN speech on Jammu and Kashmir. Reacting to his UN speech, Sehwag had written on Twitter, “After the pathetic speech in the UN a few days ago, this man seems to be inventing new ways to humiliate himself.”
This prompted Ganguly to also join the conversation as he wrote, “Viru .. I see this and I am shocked ..a speech which is unheard of .. a world which needs peace, Pakistan as a country needs it the most .. and the leader speaks such rubbish ..not the Imran khan the cricketer world knew ..speech in UN was poor..”
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday had delivered a speech in the United National General Assembly. Not only did Khan slam the Indian government for the violations of human rights in Jammu and Kashmir but also stunned his Indian opponents by raising the militant ideology of the BJP’s ideological parent, the RSS, at the UNGA. Khan had said that the ideologies of the RSS and Hitler and Mussolini were the same.
The Pakistani prime minister said, “I have to explain what the RSS is. Mr (Narendra) Modi is a ‘life member’ of the RSS. RSS was an organisation, which was inspired by Adolf Hitler and Mussolini. Came about in 1925. They believed in racial purity and racial superiority. They also believed that they were the Aryan race like the Nazis believed they were the Aryan race.”
“All that I am saying (here) can be verified. This RSS believes in ethnic cleansing of Muslims in India. There is a hatred (by RSS) for Muslims and Christians. They believe that the golden age of Hinduism halted because of Muslim rule. They openly stated hatred for Muslims and Christians. This is all open knowledge. You can all just google the founding fathers of the RSS like Golwalker and Sarvarkar. This ideology of hate murdered the great Mahatma Gandhi in 1948.”
Responding to Khan’s allegations that the RSS believed in the ethnic cleansing of Muslims, the Sangh’s joint general secretary Krishna Gopal appeared to take the Pakistani prime minister’s extraordinary criticism as a compliment. Gopal thanked Khan for ‘spreading the RSS’s name across the world.’
Imran Khan led the Pakistani cricket team to win the World Cup in 1992 before he joined politics and formed his own party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
