Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has on Tuesday accused Indian and Israeli political leadership of “moral bankruptcy” and the incumbent parties of illegally occupying the West Bank from Palestine and Kashmir in “defiance of international laws” and “their own constitutions” for the votes as both nations were heading towards polls this week.
According to Dawn news reports, Khan asked when Israel and India show a moral bankruptcy in defiance of international law, “don’t their people feel a sense of outrage”.
In a tweet, Khan said, “When leaders in Israel and India show a moral bankruptcy in their readiness to annex occupied West Bank and IoK [Indian occupied Kashmir] in defiance of international law, United Nations Security Council resolutions, and their own Constitution for votes, don’t their people feel a sense of outrage and wonder how far they [the leaders] will go simply to win an election?”

Today, Israel will head to the ballot boxes for the country’s parliamentary elections which will further determine whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will continue to hold the position for the fifth term. Netanyahu will today face challenge from ex-military chief Benny Gantz. Though, Netanyahu still appears to have the best chance of forming a coalition.
