Shock and awe in Pakistan after Imran Khan praises PM Modi's foreign policy

Highlights

  • Imran Khan recently praised PM Modi before a crowd of thousands of his supporters
  • Most of the Islamic nations have now changed their attitude towards India
  • Saudi Arabia has stopped giving loans to Pakistan, and UAE has stopped raising Kashmir issue

The people of Pakistan, including political leaders, were surprised when Prime Minister Imran Khan praised his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi's foreign policy before a crowd of thousands of supporters, The News reported on Saturday. Khan praised Modi's foreign policy while addressing a public rally in Malakand, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. "I would like to praise our neighbouring country Hindustan for its foreign policy. India's foreign policy is free and independent, and its only aim is for the betterment of its own people."

"It is amusing to note that Imran Khan, who, at one point of time, used to deride Narendra Modi as Hitler and Nazi leader at international forums, has now praised his foreign policy, at a time when his government is on the verge of collapse," The News said in its report. "Modi established friendly relations with countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Oman and Jordan, which were traditional friends of Pakistan. Saudi Arabia has stopped giving loans to Pakistan, and UAE has stopped raising the Kashmir issue despite prodding from Pakistan.

"Most of the Islamic nations have now changed their attitude towards India and the situation has come to such a pass that even opposition leaders in Pakistan have now started asking their Prime Minister not to give Modi's examples. These opposition leaders allege that the world is now laughing at Pakistan because of Imran Khan's incompetence," says the report.

Indian Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla reacted to Khan's remark by saying: "India has received across the board praise from different countries for its foreign policy, and our record speaks for itself. It would be wrong to say that only one leader has praised India's foreign policy."
