Imran Khan describes India as ‘khuddar qaum’

But Imran Khan also mentioned Kashmir as a sore thumb and said Islamabad had differences with New Delhi because of the 'RSS ideology' of the current dispensation of the latter

In a speech that may gladen Indians but may be deemed politically incorrect in Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan has praised rival country India again, saying no other country could dictate terms to its eastern neighbour as it is a khuddar qaum (self-reliant nation). Earlier, a similar speech by the Pakistani prime minister had gone viral among internet users in India.

It does not mean, however, that Khan was all praise for India. He mentioned Kashmir as a sore thumb and said Islamabad had differences with New Delhi also because of the latter’s current “RSS ideology”, whatever he meant by that.

To quote Khan fully, he said, “Indians are a khuddar qaum. No superpower can dictate terms to India. I am disappointed that only due to RSS ideology and what is done with Kashmir, we don’t share good relations.”

This speech comes two days after the Supreme Court of Pakistan set aside the National Assembly deputy speaker’s ruling on a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan. The day before yesterday, the country’s top court annulled the dissolution of the National Assembly of Pakistan and all the concomitant decisions taken by the Khan government, like his plan to call for an early election.

Obviously hurt by the verdict, Khan said, “I am upset with the Supreme Court’s decision. I was upset because when the deputy speaker conducted the investigation, the Supreme Court should have probed it.”

The prime minister of Pakistan, who is clearly on his way out, also pointed at the “rampant horse-trading in the opposition camp” and asked, “Which country’s democracy allows these kinds of acts?”

“I am upset that when these things are happening openly, I have never seen something like this happen in a Western democracy. I have never seen people sell their conscience. The Supreme Court should take suo moto cognizance of such activities,” Khan said.

The founder and head of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) reiterated his claim of a foreign conspiracy to oust him, terming it as an “ on our sovereignty”. He again compared the “aazaad” (independent) foreign policy of India to that of Pakistan, perhaps pointing at the decades of Cold War gone by when it was closer to the United States.

“We and India got our independence together, but Pakistan gets used as tissue paper and thrown away,” Khan said.
