First time, Pak acknowledges J&K as Indian state

As Pakistan is trying to internationalise the issue of Kashmir and raise it at the 42nd session United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), their foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi inadvertently acknowledged that Jammu and Kashmir as an Indian state.


Shah Mahmood Qureshi along with Prime Minister Imran Khan’s special representative on Diplomatic Outreach Tehmina Januja reached Geneva to push their agenda. Qureshi, while interacting with the media, said that India is trying to give an impression to the world that life has turned to normalcy.


“If life has returned to normalcy, then why don’t they allow you, the international media, why don’t they allow international organizations?” asked Qureshi. While trying to push the narrative of human rights violation in Jammu and Kashmir, Qureshi ended up saying ‘Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir’.


Pakistan has been constantly denying to acknowledge Jammu and Kashmir as Indian territory and called it ‘India Occupied Kashmir’ on international forums.
