Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday once again urged the international community to wake up before the ‘Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on the move leads to genocide of Muslims in India that would dwarf other genocides’.
In a post on Twitter, the prime minister said, “Whenever militias like Hitler’s Brown Shirts or RSS are formed, based upon hatred of a certain community, it always ends in genocide.”

The prime minister was responding to a tweet shared by Suchitra Vijayan, founder of a New York based research organisation, showing RSS activists marching in military style in India’s Telangana state.
Vijayan said RSS activists were “Nazi’s in Khaki uniform.” “If the international community remains silent — you are complicit in endorsing the ongoing violence,” she said.
India has been rocked by demonstrations since December 12, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government enacted the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) that provides non-Muslim minorities from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who moved here before 2015 a pathway to Indian citizenship.
