The highlight of Zulqarnain Cheena’s reply was his explanation of Hindutva ideology by quoting former supreme leader of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Golwalkar. Zulqarnain spoke of a quote by the leader that was a reflection of the prevalent ideas of Hindu supremacism in India. He quoted, “Non-Hindus must either adopt Hindu culture and language, and learn to respect and revere the Hindu religion or they may stay in the country, wholly subordinated to the Hindu nation, claiming nothing, deserving no privileges.”
Zulqarnain added that this ideal of Hindu supremacy was being zealously put in place in India, and that every act of cow vigilantism and mob lynching was a reflection of the supremacist RSS ideology in India.
Referring to Hindu extremism, Zulqarnain said that those who had assassinated Mahatma Gandhi in 1948 were busy in killing the idea of a secular India espoused by him.
In reference to Imran Khan’s speech, the diplomat said that the prime minister had highlighted what India was trying to hide from the world, not only in terms of its actions in Kashmir, but also the ‘egregious’ treatment of minorities in India.
Moreover, Zulqarnain put forth the question of why India was not allowing the right of expression to Kashmiris and why did India not have the moral courage to respond to the findings of the United Nations High Commissioner For Human Rights that documented Indian repression in Kashmir.
The diplomat also reminded his audience that India was denying the right of self-determination to Kashmiris, that had been pledged to them by India, Pakistan and the international community as enshrined by eleven UN Security Council Resolutions.
