Pakistan’s Reaction on revocation of Article 370

As soon as Indian government announced that Jammu and Kashmir would be bifurcated into two union territories and Article 370 would be revoked, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan commented that India’s racist ideology would result in another Pulwama.

Immediately, he set up a high-level committee to prepare a plan of action.

Yesterday he held a meeting of the National Security Committee in Islamabad to discuss further actions to be taken in detail. 

Defence Minister Pervez Khattak, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and several other important ministers attended the meeting. After that, the Committee announced certain things.

The announcements of the Committee are:

  • Pakistan would suspend bilateral trade with India.
  • It would review the bilateral agreements.
  • It would downgrade diplomatic relations with India.
  • The matter would be taken to the United Nations, including the Security Council.
  • Though Independence Day would be observed as usual on August 14, August 15 would be observed as Black Day.

With the decision of the Committee, Indian High Commissioner would be returning to Delhi while the newly-appointed Pakistan High Commissioner would not be coming to India.

Imran Khan alleged that India is racist and violates human rights. He would activate all diplomatic channels to point out this.

Imran Khan asked his armed forces to remain vigilant on borders.

However, the former Indian foreign minister Salman Khurshid said that the decision of Pakistan would not impact India, rather it would affect them badly. He added that it is a short-sighted decision which would affect them adversely.

Amit Shah in his speech on bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir reiterated that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of the country including Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Yet, Pakistan felt that Kashmir is not an integral part of India.
