After the abrogation of Article 370 by the Modi government for the full integration of Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of the country, Congress and Pakistan seem to have found an ideological soulmate in each other. Their rhetoric have often been exactly the same as far as Kashmir, Modi or even RSS is concerned. Today, taking that camaraderie a step further, Pakistan Minister Choudhury Fawad Hussain rued the fact that Rahul Gandhi did not win the 2019 elections and instead, Prime Minister Modi is running the country.
It all started with this Tweet by Rahul Gandhi.
I strongly condemn the arrest of our J&K PCC Chief, Shri Ghulam Ahmed Mir & spokesperson, Shri Ravinder Sharma in Jammu today. With this unprovoked action against a national political party, the Govt has delivered democracy another body blow. When will this madness end? https://t.co/1z3e7qHCDE

Rahul Gandhi “strongly condemned” the arrest of Congress PCC Chief Ghulam Nabi Mir and spokesperson Ravinder Sharma in Jammu. Rahul Gandhi said that this was a ‘another blow to democracy’. Why this statement gains significance is that while the Modi government has been trying to ensure that all separatists and people fanning tension are detained so peace in Jammu and Kashmir can prevail, Rahul Gandhi has been playing petty politics over the steps.
It was in response to this tweet that Choudhury Fawad Hussain responded and rued the fact that Rahul Gandhi did not win in 2019.
Had you been a leader and a man enough would have taken a just stand on #Pulwama Today world would have been better sans #ModiMadness Your coward politics allowed India to become a prey of Fascism and Extremism https://t.co/SHwI7L7diN

Fawad Hussain tweeted, “Had you been a leader and a man enough would have taken a just stand on #Pulwama Today world would have been better sans #ModiMadness Your coward politics allowed India to become a prey of Fascism and Extremism”.
Fawad Hussaid said that Rahul Gandhi was a coward to not take a “just” stand on Pulwama. Interestingly, several people from within the Congress party had floated the theory that Pulwama was not perpetrated by Pakistan backed terrorists but was an “inside job” by the Modi govermment. This was also a stand vehemently peddled by parody nation Pakistan to shield itself after sending state sponsored terrorists to bleed India.
What must be mentioned here that as a response, after the government conducted the Balakot airstrikes deep inside Pakistan territory to neutralise JeM terror camps, Pakistan and Congress had in one voice demanded for proof of the airstrikes from the Modi government.
This is not the first time that Pakistan has reposed its faith in the Congress party and its leaders to show India down. Recently, Pakistani media had used footage of Congress leaders speaking in the Parliament to further their agenda in Kashmir.
