Stand by my word, says Imran Khan after PM Modi’s ‘Son of Pathan’ jibe

NEW DELHI: After PM Modi’s ‘Pathan’ jibe, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday reached out to Prime Minister with a “give peace a chance” message and assured him that he “stands by” his words

Khan’s remarks came a day after Modi addressing a gathering at Rajasthan’s Tonk said, “When Pakistan got a new prime minister, I congratulated him [Imran Khan]. I had told him that we together should fight against poverty and illiteracy. Imran Khan had said to me that he was son of a Pathan and will stand by his words.”

“Today, it is time to test if he will stand by his words,” PM Modi said in view of the Pulwama terror.

“PM Imran Khan stand by his words that if India gives us actionable intelligence, we will immediately act,” said a statement released by the Pakistan Prime Minister’s Office. PM Modi should “give peace a chance”, Khan said in the statement.

PM Modi on Saturday denounced the attacks on Kashmiris in the wake of the Pulwama attack, saying such things should not happen in the country.

“Our fight is for Kashmir, not against Kashmiris,” he said in his first response to the attacks on Kashmiris, mostly businessmen and students, in wake of the February 14 terror strike when a Jaish-e-Mohammad operative rammed an explosive-laden SUV into a Central Reserve Police Force convoy on the Jammu-Srinagar highway, killing 40 CRPF men on the spot.
