New Delhi: Pakistan’s ruling party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Saturday shared an old, edited video on Twitter, showing violent protests in Kashmir and claimed that people in the Valley were being attacked by the Indian Army.
“Curfews and media blackout cannot contain revolutions that emerge as a result of grave human rights violations. Yet Indian Govt continues to alienate Kashmir. Unarmed men, women, children being attacked by Indian Army. Inhumane! #Kashmir,” PTI tweeted.
At the time of publishing this report, the tweet had over 3,000 shares and 4,000 likes.
The video was even shared by Khaleej Mag, a digital media company based in Dubai, Kuwait, Qatar and Dublin.
The video has been edited by clubbing two videos that were uploaded on YouTube in 2017 and 2018.
Pakistan’s attempts to claim that abrogation of Article 370 has led to violence in the valley by using old videos comes at a time when its attempts to garner international support have proved to be futile. Most countries have asked India and Pakistan to settle the matter bilaterally.
The international community, however, has also asked India to ensure that no human rights violations take place in the Valley.
Meanwhile, on Friday a US State Department official said, “We do expect the issue of India-Pakistan relations to come up (during Modi-Trump meet in France). The President will likely want to hear from Prime Minister Modi on how he plans to reduce regional tensions and uphold respect for human rights for Kashmir as part of India’s role as the world’s largest democracy.”
“India’s decision to rescind Article 370 in Kashmir is an internal decision, but certainly with regional implications. And President Trump will likely want to hear how Prime Minister Modi intends to calm regional tensions in light of this significant move,” the official said, adding that India should lift the communication blackout from the Valley.
The official also said that President Trump has urged Pakistan to “to prevent the infiltration of militants across the Line of Control that divides Kashmir and to crack down on groups on its territory that have attacked India in the past”
