Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid has said that “Indian politicians have been wishing for his death”, Khaleej Times reported.

“Indian Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi made a big mistake by revoking the autonomy of Indian-held Kashmir (IHK),” he said while addressing a press conference.

“Modi’s main agenda is to destroy Pakistan,” the minister said, adding that Muslims were treated as second-class citizens in India.


He warned Indian soldiers that if they move towards Lahore or Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), they should know that Pakistan’s “smart bombs will welcome them”.

“Our army is ready,” said the minister. However, he said it would be better for both nations to resolve the issue through dialogue.
