ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Monday condemned India’s move to abolish Kashmir’s special status as “illegal,” insisting it was an internationally recognized disputed territory.
“Pakistan reaffirms its abiding commitment to the Kashmir cause and its political, diplomatic and moral support to the people of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir for the realization of their inalienable right to self-determination,” the statement said.
India’s decision to strip Kashmir of the special autonomy it has enjoyed for seven decades has also prompted condemnation on Pakistani Twitter, where at one point the top six trending hashtags all related to the move.
Pakistan’s human rights minister Shireen Mazari branded the step “illegal annexation” in a tweet.
