    Pakistan's Imran Khan likens India's actions in Kashmir to Nazism - CNN
    (CNN)Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has likened India's revoking of Jammu and Kashmir state's autonomy to Nazi ideology, and warned the international community that inaction would be similar to appeasing Hitler.
    Indian-controlled Kashmir, one of the world's most sensitive regions, remains in lockdown amid a communications blackout, with landline connections, internet and mobile coverage all suspended. Tens of thousands of additional Indian troops have also been deployed into the already heavily militarized region to head off unrest after the government in New Delhi moved to scrap the region's special status.
    Politicians have reportedly been detained, journalists restricted in their reporting and human rights groups have warned of potential abuses due to the lack of international oversight enabled by the communications blackout.

    In a series of tweets Sunday, Khan said India's actions in Muslim-majority Kashmir were an attempt "to change (the) demography of Kashmir through ethnic cleansing" and asked whether the world would "watch and appease as they did Hitler at Munich?"
    The 1938 Munich Pact was an agreement between between Germany, Great Britain, France and Italy that allowed Nazi Germany to annex part of Czechoslovakia.
    Khan described the scrapping of Article 370 of India's constitution that ensures Kashmir's autonomy as an "impending genocide" and said the Hindu nationalist ideology of the Indian government -- ruled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) -- was inspired by Nazi ideology.

    The "ideology of Hindu Supremacy, like the Nazi Aryan Supremacy, will not stop" in Indian-controlled Kashmir, "instead it will lead to suppression of Muslims in India and eventually lead to targeting of Pakistan."
    The tweets reiterated comments Khan made to parliament on Wednesday, where he said "the current government in India is acting like Hitler's Nazi party."
    Khan's office said the Prime Minister is reaching out to world leaders over the situation in Kashmir as he believes India's move to change the region's status is in violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions.
    In a statement Saturday, Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said he intends to take the issue to the UN Security Council.
    Indian foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for a comment.
    But Modi's government has repeatedly insisted that the special provisions in Jammu and Kashmir have restricted investment and economic growth. Revoking Kashmir's special status was one of the promises made by the Indian Prime Minister ahead of recent national elections.
    In a televised speech on Thursday, Modi said the decision to strip the state of its autonomy would free it of "terrorism" and claimed that Article 370 had caused "separatism, terrorism, dynastic politics and corruption." He also claimed the decision would bring stability to the restive territory.
    "As a nation, we have taken a historic decision," Modi said. "Due to the past system, the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh were deprived of many rights, which was a major obstacle in their development. That is now over."
    BJP National Secretary Ram Madhav responded to Khan's tweet, saying the "threat to democratic world is from Pakistan-sponsored Jihadi terror, not from India."

    Monday is the first day of Eid al-Adha in Pakistan which is one of the two major Islamic holidays of the year. Pakistan's foreign minister and major opposition leaders are scheduled to attend and offer Eid prayers in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-controled Kashmir in solidarity with the Kashmiri people.

    If any one is expecting any thing but appeasement for India from the west, they will be sorely disappointed. Every government and most people know exactly what India stands for, but the mentality will remain my enemy's enemy.

    Due to the storm of theocratic control exercised through western visual and social media, a fundamental aspect of western democracy, they will always revert to the most basic of human tendencies. This is because the west has become so intoxicated in the theocratic truth of their freedom narrative, they simply do not have the mental capacity to think beyond simplistic means.

    The truth of this rests in the evidently multiplying populist regimes in all western regions, and India is a prime example of an opportunist predator who always knows when to take its opportunity in the cover of metaphorical darkness.

    Regardless, all due respect to PMIK for having the courage to clearly state the reality of the situation, and most will certainly look back with admiration once this mess has been cleared up.

    I agree with you --- though we often paint the West policy as idiotic and tone-deaf to regional realities, I believe the truth is that they are more sinister than stupid. They know exactly what they're doing and most of this "we will bring you freedom" BS is just to further their spheres of influence.
