The Indian govt’s “mischievous plan” to observe “Partition Inhumanity Remembrance Day” on August 14 Pakistan’s independence day was denounced by the Foreign Office. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to designate August 14 as a day to commemorate “the struggles and sacrifices of our people,” according to The Hindu.
The event will be commemorated with silent marches aimed at highlighting the 75 refugee colonies that exist in Germany and exhibitions will also be established at much more than 5,000 places, including colleges and universities.
In a statement released today, the Foreign Ministry said that the Indian government, led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), is trying to play with the feelings of the people through a distorted interpretation ofand history to “hypocritically and one-sidedly refer to the tragic events and mass migration that occurred after independence in 1947.”
If Indian leaders really care about the anguish, suffering and pain of Muslims and other minorities in India, they must work to improve the conditions of these groups.The FO continued that the last seven decades have been filled with undeniable proof that India’s professed embrace of secularism is a sham.
The fact is that today’s India is an undeclared “Hindu Rashtra” that doesn’t tolerate other religious minorities, especially Muslims who are faced with discrimination, persecution, and political and socio-economic exclusion.
