India slams Pakistan for lies and half-truths on Jammu and Kashmir.

Exposing Pakistan's lies and fake propaganda, India has slammed Pakistani Ambassador to China Moin-ul-Haque for his lies and half-truths on Jammu and Kashmir, and said terrorists recruited, trained and armed by Islamabad have disturbed peace and order in the Union Territory which is an integral part of India.
 
"India's concerted efforts to bring peace, stability and progress to J&K stand in stark contrast to Pakistan's strategy, which is little more than a blatant and rapacious campaign of cross-border terrorism aimed at debilitating the region," the Embassy of India said. The Embassy made these remarks in response to an article titled "Urgent actions on Jammu, Kashmir needed" published in China's state-run Global Times on August 7.
 
In a statement, the Embassy said 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 part of India and whose affairs are internal affairs of India, where Pakistan, or any other country, has no locus standi."
 
Ambassador Haque's misrepresentations, while not surprising, cannot conceal the significant progress that J&K has made in the year following the abrogation of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, the statement said, detailing the developmental activities initiated by the government in the last one year.
 
 
Haque could consider holding up a mirror to his own "regime" and reflect on Pakistan's own actions in the region before making ludicrous characterisations of the Indian government's actions, it added.
 
"Terrorists recruited, trained and armed by Pakistan have disturbed peace and order in J&K, with over 450 incidents of terrorist orchestrated violence taking place since August 2019, leading to several civilian casualties. And it is in fact Pakistan that has repeatedly effected administrative and demographic changes in territories that it has occupied illegally and forcibly in J&K and Ladakh," it said.
 
Pakistan's unprovoked ceasefire violations, numbering close to 3,000 in the first seven months of 2020 alone, provide support for terrorist infiltration along the Line of Control (LOC), the statement added.
 
The Global Times has declined to carry the Indian Embassy’s response, the mission said. “The Global Times @globaltimesnews declined to carry the Indian Embassy’s response to this interview,” the Embassy tweeted on Thursday.
 
The Embassy also attached to the tweet its detailed response which Global Times, part of the ruling Communist Party of China’s (CPC) publications, has declined to carry.
 
While Pakistan will again rant about J&K, protests within Pakistan by Baloch, Gilgit Baltistan leaders, POK are gaining ground. Pakistan today is surrounded by internal strife, but continues to rant about Kashmir. Its relations with Saudi are badly damaged over its Kashmir obsession, that Pakistan's Army Chief is going to Riyadh to pacify Saudis.
