Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday thanked the leadership of Iran and Turkey for raising their voice against the state-sponsored terrorism against Muslims in India.

The prime minister said in a tweet that Iran’s Supreme Leader Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan raised their voice against the massacre of the Muslim minority in India. He thanked the Turkish president and Iranian supreme leader for lending their support to Indian Muslims.

Khan said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist government was involved in massacre of the Muslim minority in India. He said that even the West was raising its voice against the genocide of Muslims in India and the atrocities being committed by the Indian armed forces against the unarmed and innocent people in occupied Kashmir, but there were only a few in the Muslim world who were condemning the Indian government’s acts.
