Hypocrite Imran Khan adopts double standards: Ignores issue of Uighur Muslims in China
China has been condemned internationally for cracking down on the minorities living in their countries. China has been accused of oppressing the Uighur by sending them to mass detention camps, but Imran Khan ignores
New Delhi, Sep 16: China has been condemned internationally for cracking down on the minorities living in their countries. China has been accused of oppressing the Uighur by sending them to mass detention camps, interfering in their religious activities and sending the community to undergo some form of forceful re-education or indoctrination.
Netizens did not miss the opportunity to highlight Imran Khan “hypocrisy” and chided him for being “selective in choosing the Muslim brethren”.Pakistani journalist Taha Siddique pointed out Imran Khan’s hypocrisy in ignoring Uighur suppression in China.
“Dear @ImranKhanPTI last time when an FT journalist asked u the same u had said u’ve no idea about Uighurs in China & once again you have claimed ignorance while u keep on harping abt Muslim “genocide” in Kashmir and India. Why the double standards? #DontBeAHypocrite.” tweeted Taha Siddique.
“While, he goes on and on and on about Kashmir and India. Laughable that as soon as Imran Khan is asked about the condemnation of China’s treatment of Uyghur Muslims, he remembers that his priority is the citizens of Pakistan. Hypocrisy galore this,” tweeted another Pakistani journalist Naila Inayat.
“Imran Khan is the best example of double standards. He can see a problem in Kashmir but he becomes totally blind when asked about Uighur Muslims being killed in China. shame shame Imran” tweeted one user.
“So, #ImranKhan finally admits that #Pakistan is indeed embroiled with internal issues but when will he seriously address them? When questioned about his stance on #Uyghurs, Kaptaan says “#China is our best friend!” Why so selective in choosing the #Muslim brethren?,” tweeted another.A Twitterati said that Khan has set a “new record of double standards”.
“Funny how the massacre of Uighur Muslims is not his concern and China is a best friend. Woah! He has a set a new record of double standards. I sympathise with the Uyghurs, not only @ImranKhanPTI and @Malala the world is a mute spectator to their plight!,” tweeted a user.
“Imran Khan Pakistan Prime minister has condemned India for the crackdown in Kashmir Same man that saw nothing with what China is doing to Uighur Muslims...Muslim leaders and double standard hypocrisy. He is only defending Kashmir because Pakistan has an interest,” said a user on Twitter.
Last year too, during an interview with Turkish International News, upon being asked the same question about the condition of Uighurs in China, Khan had replied that he is not aware about the Chinese situation.
“I do not know the exact situation. Frankly, I mean I just have to tell you the truth. You know in Pakistan at the moment that since we have been in power for four months. A new government comes in first time in power. You know there were so many different issues to settle,” he had said.
