ISLAMABAD: The fascist government of Narendra Modi is carrying out the ethnic cleansing of Indian Muslims, says Prime Minister Imran Khan.

In a message posted on Twitter, Imran Khan said: “Indian police brutality reaches new lows as its pogrom of Muslims in India continues as part of fascist Modi Govt’s ethnic cleansing agenda.”

Last year, exposing its so-called secular image, India had passed a controversial legislation that will allow citizenship to all religious minorities except Muslims fleeing persecution from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.

The bill was approved with 311 votes in favour and 80 against it.
