Pakistan denied the claims made by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday regarding India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir during a rally in Gujrat, asserting that they were not only ambiguous and misleading but also demonstrated how unaware the Indian Prime Minister has become of the ground realities in IIJOK.
Modi claimed that he was following in the footsteps of Sardar Patel, India’s first home minister and that Patel “persuaded all the princely states to combine with India.” The apparent dig at Jawaharlal Nehru, the country’s first prime minister, was “But another guy managed this one issue of Kashmir.”
According to reports, Modi stated, “As I am walking in the footsteps of Sardar saheb, I have values of the country of Sardar, and that was the reason I handled the Kashmir conflict and paid true honor to Sardar Patel.”
The Foreign Office expressed disapproval of the inappropriate remarks, describing them as “not only untrue and misleading but also illustrates how naïve the Indian leadership has grown of the ground reality in IIOJK,” in a release.
The Foreign Office criticized the Indian leader for his comments, saying that he had made “irrational boasts about having ended the problem unilaterally, the Indian leadership must deliver on their obligations to the Kashmiris.” It stated that Jammu and Kashmir was an established international conflict whose resolution has been on the UN’s radar since 1948.
India has illegally seized the land and committed heinous human rights crimes while using over 900,000 cruel occupation forces, according to the FO statement. This is despite unambiguous UN resolutions that call for a free and impartial referendum to settle the conflict.
