New Delhi, Nov 24: Pakistan said that yesterday it would formulate a doable and sustainable India-Kashmir policy. A broad understanding of this policy indicates that Pakistan would like to counter India's campaign in Kashmir and also design a media strategy to highlight the issue of Kashmiris.
One part of this strategy would include reaching out to Indians opposed to Narendra Modi. The Dawn had reported that foreign affairs advisor, Sartaj Aziz had informed the same in the senate.
The strategy would also include preparing of fact sheets to counter the Indian propaganda in Kashmir. A panel would be constituted for the same, Aziz had also informed.
What India thinks of this strategy?
Amusing and surprising said a senior official in Delhi. The world knows that Pakistan is the aggressor and has been fanning the Kashmir issue. The official also added that the intention of Pakistan is to internationalise the issue. This would bear no result as it would first need to stop funding and aiding terrorism, the officer also noted.
India says it has its own data sheets on the Kashmir issue. In the past few months Pakistan has sent in 200 terrorists. The National Investigation Agency has probed into various aspects in this regard. In fact the NIA has also questioned a terrorist Bahadur Ali who not only confirmed he is from Pakistan but also said he was told to fan the unrest further.
Aziz had said to the senate that a committee had also been formed to prepare fact sheets, counter India's "propaganda campaign" and design a media strategy to continuously highlight the Kashmiri issue.
This committee also includes representatives from the ministries of defence, foreign affairs and information technology, as well as members of the Military Operations Directorate, ISI and IB, the report in Dawn also stated.
