During his pre-recorded speech shown at the General Assembly earlier in the day, Khan had repeated the same allegations about India as previous year focused on the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) asserting they and the government were persecuting minorities.

#WATCH Indian delegate at the UN General Assembly Hall walked out when Pakistan PM Imran Khan began his speech.

Prime Minister Imran Khan had his second address at the United Nations General Assembly on Friday. The reason behind it is the RSS ideology that rules India today, he said. "Kashmir has been rightly described as a nuclear flashpoint", Mr Khan said".

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Lieutenant General (R) Asim Saleem Bajwa hailed the prime minister's speech saying it had made every Pakistani proud and truly represented.

At the United Nations gathering of world leaders, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan accused India of trying to cement control in Kashmir, and called the Narendra Modi government a sponsor of hatred and prejudice against Islam, according to AP.

"This is the same country that has systematically cleansed its minorities including Hindus, Christians, Sikhs and others, through the abuse of blasphemy laws and through forced religious conversions", Vinito also remarked during his strongly worded reply.

Speakers maintained that UNGA should not allow (Narendra Modi) killers of Muslims to address as this is a disgrace for humanity and all peace loving nations around the globe.

Koeman said ahead of their opening game: " It seemed that I had been the bad guy in this movie, but it is not like that ". Barca, Atletico and Sevilla are starting the season later due to their Champions League and Europa League excursions.

According to the Kashmir Media Service, Senior Hurriyat leader Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori thanked PM Imran Khan and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan for raising the Kashmir dispute during their addresses to the UNGA.

In his speech, Khan had urged the global community to intervene on the Kashmir issue.

He continued, "The courageous Kashmiri people will never submit to Indian occupation and oppression".

Sopori urged the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to play his role in resolving the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the world body. "We call upon Pakistan to vacate all those areas that it is in illegal occupation of".

Chairman Tehreek-e-Muzahamat Jammu and Kashmir Bilal Siddiqui termed the speech of PM Imran khan a grim reminder to the world body of its failures to implement its resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan was characterised as "someone who professes to be a champion of Islam, this is also a country that has encouraged killing of fellow Muslims merely because they belonged to a different sect, or to a different region in Pakistan, and through sponsoring terrorist attacks against its neighbours", he added. The prime minister said Islamabad wanted a peaceful solution in Afghanistan too.

"The government and the people of Pakistan are committed to standing by and supporting their Kashmiri brothers and sisters in the legitimate struggle for self-determination". "A just and lasting settlement is indispensable for the Middle East and the world", the statement said.
