Iran expect India to adopt just policy towards people of Kashmir, says Khamenei

Tehran, Aug 22: Iran’s Supreme leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei expressed concern over the situation of Muslims in Kashmir and said that the Indian government should “adopt a just policy towards the people of Kashmir.”

Modi government on August 5 ended the special status to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 and split the state into two union territories.

“We’re concerned about Muslims’ situation in Kashmir. We have good relations with India, but we expect the Indian government to adopt a just policy towards the noble people of Kashmir and prevent the oppression & bullying of Muslims in this region,” he tweeted.

The Iranian leader also blamed the UK for the current situation in Kashmir.

“The current situation in Kashmir and the disputes between India and Pakistan regarding it are a result of the vicious British government’s measures while leaving the Indian subcontinent. The British intentionally left this wound in that region in order to sustain conflicts in Kashmir,” Khamenei tweeted.

The Iran leader’s comments come a day after Pakistan said it will approach the International Court of Justice over India’s Kashmir move.
