India on fire as Iran cleric voices truth about IHK

New Delhi:  In a move that could further strain friendly ties, India has lodged a strong protest over Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei’s remarks describing Kashmir as one of the world’s besieged regions, along with Gaza and Afghanistan. Sources say India has issued a démarche to Iran for these comments by the supreme leader.
Khamenei in his message to Hajj pilgrims also appealed to the Muslim elite worldwide to back the “struggle” in Jammu and Kashmir, equating the state with the “nations” of Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan.
Sources added that India has conveyed its disappointment and abstained from voting on a UN resolution criticising Iran’s human rights violations.
Moreover India Friday summoned the Iranian charge d’ affaires and conveyed its “deep disappointment” over comments on Kashmir emanating from Tehran.
“We have conveyed to the Iranian authorities our deep disappointment and regret that they have chosen to disregard our sensitivities and chosen to question our territorial sovereignty,” a government source said. External affairs ministry’s Joint Secretary YK Sinha summoned the Iranian charge d’ affaires to his office Friday and conveyed the Indian government’s sentiments, said sources. It was pointed out this was not the first time as Khamenei had also made a similar statement in July this year.
