ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan's prime minister said Friday he has warned the international community that India could launch an attack on Pakistani-held Kashmir in an effort to divert attention from human rights abuses in the portion of the disputed Himalayan region that it controls.

The warning comes a day after Prime Minister Imran Khan approved military response as tensions rise over Kashmir issue. The Pakistani army has said it is prepared to defend against any attack by India , and would respond with "full force" if that happens, a spokesman said a day after Prime

In a speech at a rally in Islamabad, Imran Khan said his country will give a "befitting response" to the government of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi if it attacked.

"Every brick will be countered with a stone," he said. "Our armed forces are ready" to respond to any such attack, he said.

Khan said any conflict between nuclear-armed Pakistan and India will not be confined to the South Asian region. "The whole world will be affected," he said, adding that he will raise the issue when he addresses the U.N. General Assembly next month.

Khan said people in Indian-administered Kashmir have been living under a curfew for almost four weeks since New Delhi downgraded Muslim-majority Kashmir's autonomy on Aug. 5 and imposed a security clampdown to prevent any violent response.

Pakistan 's Prime Minister , Imran Khan, said neither side could afford "miscalculations" and that any India has accused Pakistan of having a "direct hand" in the attack -- the deadliest on security Indian Foreign Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said his country's strike into Pakistani territory on

Prime Minister Imran Khan promised a response to the strikes, which he dismissed as a political ploy by Mr. Modi, carried out for “domestic consumption” And Mr. Khan insisted that Pakistan would investigate the attack if India offered evidence. Through decades of tensions, Pakistan and India

Khan expressed his government's full support for Kashmiri people and said he hopes that Indian-administered Kashmir will soon get independence.

He described Modi as a "fascist" and equated him with Adolf Hitler, saying he feared a "genocide of Muslims in Kashmir."

India on Thursday said it has information that Pakistan is trying to infiltrate "terrorists" into the country. Pakistan's army spokesman, Maj. Gen. Ghafoor, rejected the Indian claims, saying Pakistan was a responsible state and "we would be insane to allow infiltration" across the Line of Control that divides the countries in Kashmir.

Rallies were held Friday in almost all cities, towns and villages in Pakistan and Pakistani-controlled Kashmir to express solidarity with Kashmiris in the Indian-held portion. Protesters in the eastern city of Lahore and elsewhere burned Indian flags and effigies of Modi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi vows “a befitting reply” to the suicide bombing, which killed dozens of Indian soldiers. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said India would use all diplomatic means to “ensure the complete India ’s military responded then with what it described as “surgical strikes” in Pakistan .

In Bangladesh, another Muslim-majority nation, thousands of people marched after prayers Friday through the capital, Dhaka, to protest India's clampdown in Kashmir.

They demanded independence for Indian-held Kashmir and the restoration of the constitutional provision that gave it autonomy.

The protesters burned an effigy of Modi as they marched through the streets.

The rallies came a day after Pakistan's military announced that it successfully test-fired a missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads up to 290 kilometers (about 180 miles).

The two neighbors fought two of their three wars over control of Kashmir since they gained independence from British colonial rule in 1947.

They went close to war again in February, when a suicide bombing in Indian-administered Kashmir killed 40 paramilitary soldiers. India responded by bombing an alleged militant training camp in Pakistan. Pakistan then said it shot down two Indian air force planes and captured an Indian pilot who was later released.

India often accuses Pakistan of training and arming insurgent groups that have been fighting since 1989 for Kashmir's independence from India or its merger with Pakistan, a charge Islamabad denies.

Pakistan says it only provides moral and diplomatic support to these groups.

Most Kashmiris support the rebels' demand that the territory be united either under Pakistani rule or as an independent country, while also participating in civilian street protests against Indian control.
