In a bizzare attempt to internationalise the Article 370 abrogation, Pakistan on Wednesday unveiled its new ‘political map’ that claims all of Kashmir as part of its territory.
The map further goes on to claim Junagarh in Gujarat questioning the plebiscite that happened there in 1948. For the unaware, a plebiscite means voting was held to let people of Junagarh decide who they wanted to stay with – India or Pakistan – post partition. Junagarh people voted to stay with India with a whopping 190,870 votes. Pakistan only got 91 votes.
India was quick to dismiss Pakistan’s claims, which is acting like a dog with its stay strap in the hands of China.
Ministry of External Affairs called the move “an exercise in political absurdity”, adding that “these ridiculous assertions have neither legal validity nor international credibility”.
“In fact, this new effort only confirms reality of Pakistan’s obsession with territorial aggrandisement supported by cross-border terrorism,” it added.
Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani lashed out at Khan, calling the changes in the map “preposterous“.
“This so called “political map” of Pakistan released by Prime Minister Imran Khan today is a glaring example of how disconnected Pakistan PM is with ground realities. Pakistan will never succeed in its wicked design of undermining the unity and integrity of India,” Rupani tweeted.
Pakitan is so curios about internationalising the issue of Kashmir that in the past, it has taken help from China to raise the issue at the United Nations Security Council. The other four permanent memebrs of the council, however, favoured India calling it India’s internal matter.
