“India’s concerted efforts to carry peace, stability and progress to J&Ok stand in stark distinction to Pakistan’s technique, which is little greater than a blatant and rapacious marketing campaign of cross-border terrorism geared toward debilitating the area,” the Embassy of India right here mentioned.
The Embassy made these remarks in response to an article titled ‘Urgent actions on Jammu, Kashmir wanted’ revealed in China’s state-run Global Times on August 7.
In an announcement, the Embassy mentioned Ambassador Haque has chosen to repeat Pakistan’s “lies and half-truths vis-a-vis the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which is an integral a part of India and whose affairs are inner affairs of India, the place Pakistan, or every other nation, has no locus standi.”
Ambassador Haque’s misrepresentations, whereas not stunning, can’t conceal the numerous progress that J&Ok has made within the yr following the abrogation of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, the assertion mentioned, detailing the developmental actions initiated by the federal government within the final one yr.
Haque might think about holding up a mirror to his personal “regime” and mirror on Pakistan’s personal actions within the area earlier than making ludicrous characterisations of the Indian authorities’s actions, it added.

“Terrorists recruited, skilled and armed by Pakistan have disturbed peace and order in J&Ok, with over 450 incidents of terrorist-orchestrated violence happening since August 2019, resulting in a number of civilian casualties. And it’s in truth Pakistan that has repeatedly effected administrative and demographic adjustments in territories that it has occupied illegally and forcibly in J&Ok and Ladakh,” it mentioned.
Pakistan’s unprovoked ceasefire violations, numbering shut to three,000 within the first seven months of 2020 alone, present help for terrorist infiltration alongside the Line of Control (LOC), the assertion added.
