ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday again criticised Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for thinking he could "get his agenda of annexation" by using force to silence Kashmiris.

Imran Khan tweeted, "75 days & Occupation government of Modi continues the siege in IOJK. Modi is riding a tiger - he thought he could get his agenda of annexation by using 900k forces to silence Kashmiris. You don't need 900k troops to fight terrorism; you need them to terrorise 8m Kashmiri people."

In a subsequent tweet, the Pakistan Prime Minister said his Indian counterpart was "fearful."

"As the world watches the worst violation of human rights in IOJK, Modi is now fearful because he knows the moment the siege is lifted there will be a bloodbath - which would be the only way to subdue the Kashmiri people," he wrote.

The Indian government stripped the region of its semi-autonomous status on August 5 and imposed a curfew and a communications blackout.
