KARACHI      -     Consul General of Qatar Mashal Mohammad AA Ansari expressed concerns over the Pak-India tension, saying that it could be a terrifying situation in the region.

“Qatar will force India to not to take steps which may lead to war. People of Qatar are standing with Pakistan.” Consul General of Qatar Mashal Mohammad AA Ansari stated in a meeting with Governor of Sindh Imran Ismail at the Governor House.

The meeting discussed the current situation of occupied Kashmir, Indian atrocities in the valley and other matters of mutual interest.

During the meeting, Consul General of Qatar invited Governor Sindh to attend two-day long Doha Forum starting on December 14.

The Governor said that Pakistan values its bilateral relations with Qatar. Qatar has always supported Pakistan in its difficult times.

He said Qatar should utilise its influence to prevent India from further persecution in Kashmir.

There is a large number of Muslims in occupied Kashmir, and no one in the world paying any heed to the issue. The silence of human rights organizations is a major question mark, while the world media has kept quiet.

Imran Ismail said that RSS goons are killing innocent people in the valley. The international community should take strict notice of this, especially Qatar should raise its voice against this persecution.

“The recent statement of the Indian Army Chief is false, fabricated and based on lies. Our armed forces are ready to face all kinds of challenges. We are open to war but if war is imposed upon, it will affect the whole world,” he held.
