In what comes as humiliation and embarrassment for Pakistan, posters were discovered in Islamabad as well as the high-security area, the Red Zone, backing Indian government’s decision to officially cancel Article 370.
The poster is captioned ‘Maha-Bharat’ with the tagline ‘A Step Forward’. It has the image of a tweet by Indian news agency ANI attached with the quote supposedly by Shiv Sena’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut.
Raut adds, “Today we have taken back Jammu and Kashmir, tomorrow we will take back Balochistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. I believe Prime Minister Modi will fulfil the dream of ‘united’ India.”
According to the video, the narrator claims that the posters have been put all over the street in the country’s capital.
Here’s the poster below:
However, in a strange turn of events, Pakistan has now issued a ‘clarification’ adding that there was an error by the designers and ‘poor language’ was used by them.
Kashmir finally united into India:
The poster was exhibited in Pakistan’s national capital a day after Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah passed a bill to abolish Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir in Rajya Sabha. Both Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha moved bills including the one concerned with cancellation of Article 370 in the region by Tuesday.
The Bills received approval from President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday integrating Jammu and Kashmir with India and a bill to reorganise the state into Union Territories of Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir was also moved.
Now Pakistan tries to annoy India
Besides its frequent attempts to breach ceasefire violations and offering help to terrorists to infiltrate India, Pakistan on Thursday tried to annoy India by stopping the Samjhauta Express service.
It was on Thursday, after a meeting of the National Security Council led by Prime Minister Imran Khan, Pakistan decided to downgrade diplomatic ties.
It asked India to pull out of its High Commissioner to Pakistan and had also decided not to send its High Commissioner-designate to the national capital.
It partially closed its airspace and also suspended bilateral trade with India.
In spite of all that, in a latest ‘clarification’ Pakistan mentioned it has not closed its air space for Indian flights.
