    Pak Foreign Minister calls PM Modi an ‘elected terrorist’

    On Monday, Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif called Prime Minister Narendra Modi an "elected terrorist" who "has the blood of Gujarat Muslims in his hands" and referred to the Godhra riots in 2002. He also called the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh as "terrorists" at the party ".

    Asif made the comments during an interview with journalist Hamid Mir at Geos Talkshow, Capital Talk.

    "What can we say about a country that chooses a terrorist [as prime minister]," he said in the program. The minister added that Muslims were killed in India under the mantle of cow protection and that Muslims, Dalits and Christians were all "fair game" in the country.

    When Mir suggested that it can not be generalized, Asif noted that the Bharatiya Janata party had won the elections in Uttar Pradesh with the absolute majority, mainly because of the support of "Hindu upper-class communities".

    The Minister's comments come to the United Nations days after the oral exchange between the two countries. The Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj described Pakistan as "the largest exporter of rampant, deadly and inhuman" in her speech at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly.

    In the same interview, Asif also refused the latest reports that Pakistan had received a proposal from Afghanistan to exchange the former naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav for the militant who attacked a school in Peshawar in 2014 and is currently detained in Afghanistan. According to reports last week, the Foreign Minister said that Islamabad had received such an offer from the Afghan National Security Adviser. However, India had rejected its demands as an "imaginary lie".
