“All forces, including the Pakistan Army and the government, are united against the enemies of the country,” he said. All religious sects should also play their due role in thwarting India’s efforts to promote sectarianism in Pakistan. 

He was talking to the media after visiting businessmen Saad Ashraf and Darman Ashraf on Raiwind Road on Sunday. Sarwar said the government led by Prime Minister Imran Khan had saved Pakistan from economic bankruptcy and taken the country in the right direction. 

The governor said that due to the increase in foreign investment the business community’s confidence has increased in the government. In all sectors, including industry, the economic boom has started rapidly after the coronavirus pandemic and new employment opportunities are being created in the country. 

Replying to a question, Chaudhry Sarwar said there is no doubt the Modi-led Indian government is following extremist agenda of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). The American magazine Foreign Policy has also exposed Indian terrorism. “Indian terrorists also want to destroy the peace of Pakistan, but we will not allow them to succeed,” he said. 

He said the opposition was pursuing a policy of disintegration and weakening the national institutions for its own political ends, but this was not in the interest of the nation at all. “At a time when India is conspiring against Pakistan, we cannot tolerate political turmoil and instability so the opposition should reconsider the policy of protest rallies and play its role in the parliament for the strength and stability of the country,” he said. 

The governor said that time has come for the United Nations and other international bodies to end the silence and declare India a terrorist country. Human rights organizations should also raise their voice against Indian terrorism because of which peace is at stake in the entire region, he said. In order to establish peace in the region, the Kashmir issue must be resolved in accordance with the UN resolutions, he said. Pakistan stands by its Kashmiri brothers and sisters, he concluded.
