(Sandhya Jha, Intern Journalist): Pakistan Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa visited Poona Sector located near the Line of Control (LoC) on the occasion of Eid. He also mentioned Kashmir on this occasion. He said that Pakistan failed to make Kashmir a global issue. While India succeeded in explaining its point to the world. Hence the attention of the global community has shifted from human rights violations and violence in Kashmir. Kashmir is a disputed area, if anyone is challenged politically and militarily, it will be given a proper answer.
Incidents of cross-border infiltration have increased in the last few days. India has taken a tough stand after the death of 5 soldiers, including Colonel Ashutosh of the Indian Army, in an encounter on May 3 in Kashmir. The security forces have done 3 major encounters in May. There were also reports that the Pakistan Air Force has increased patrolling across its border fearing India’s action. Because of all this, Bajwa went to the LoC to take stock.
Disputed part of Kashmir
According to Bajwa – “Kashmir is the disputed part. India always called him the part. The Government of India stripped the state of Jammu and Kashmir and made it a Union Territory. Article 370 was also removed from there on 5 August 2019, while it was morally and constitutionally correct. We are also celebrating Eid with brotherhood this time with Kashmiris. India has also put a lockdown in Kashmir so that violent activities can be carried out. ”Bajwa also said that Pakistan Army is alert to the dangers. We will live up to the expectations of the country regarding security.
Minister’s statement also mentioned
Referring to the statement of Pakistan’s Information Minister Shibli Faraj, Bajwa said that the people of Pakistan will not forget the atrocities being perpetrated on the Kashmiris. Shibli tweeted – “Kashmir has been occupied by the Hindutva Modi government. This has created a crisis in front of the whole world. “
