Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday drew the international community’s attention to the “state-sponsored Islamophobia” in India where Muslims are increasingly being villified and victimised.

The premier was addressing the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) via video link, where he also spoke of the burning Kashmir issue and the country’s success in combatting coronavirus.

Speaking about his government’s smart lockdown policy, the prime minister said that Pakistan opened up the agriculture and construction sector.

He credited the government’s Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme and other policies towards steering Pakistan out of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the prime minister cautioned that Pakistan was not yet “out of the woods”.

“We are not yet out of the woods like no country is out of the woods yet,” he said, referring to the COVID-19 pandemic.
