India issued a befitting reply to Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s tweet on Jammu and Kashmir yesterday, adding that Pakistan should be more interested in its own issues than India’s, according to reports.
Obediently toeing Pakistan’s army line, Imran Khan on 22nd October, tweeted about ‘’ new cycle of killings of innocent Kashmiris’’ and referred J&K, which is an integral part of India as IOK or India Occupied Kashmir. This tweet had come hours after reports about the killing of civilians in South Kashmir emerged. Reportedly, killed ones had gone to visit bodies of slain Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists, after Security forces completed operation, where the unused explosives of terrorists went off. He also raised old rants about UNSC Kashmir resolution.
Strongly condemn the new cycle of killings of innocent Kashmiris in IOK by Indian security forces. It is time India realised it must move to resolve the Kashmir dispute through dialogue in accordance with the UN SC resolutions & the wishes of the Kashmiri people.

India’s ministry of external affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar termed the tweet by Imran Khan as ‘regrettable’. He further came down heavily and admonished Pakistan, and asked first to curb cross-border terrorism to India and glorification of terrorists.
