Pakistan embarrassed as UK and Maldives acknowledge that Kashmir is an internal matter of India

Today, the UK, issued a formal statement on United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Kashmir move by China and Pakistan and denied lending support to call special session or issue formal public statement on the issue.

In a major embarrassment for Pakistan, which has been running from pillar to post to gather support against India’s decision to abrogate Article 370, the United Kingdom (UK) today categorically washed its hands off. The UK, issued a formal statement on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Kashmir move by China and Pakistan and denied lending support to call a special session or issue a formal public statement on the issue.

The UK refused to mediate between India and Pakistan, leaving Pakistan red faced.


Ever since Home Minister Amit Shah announced the bold decision to abrogate Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019, Pakistan has been trying hard to sum up international support claiming India has suppressed the voice of Kashmiris in the state. Pakistan has been pushing its propaganda about Indian Army committing atrocities on the people of J&K, however to its misfortune, it is finding no takers except China.

Earlier today, both Pakistan and China were criticised at the United Nations meet on safety of religious minorities for suppressing religious freedom of minorities. The UK, the United States and Canada were highly concerned about the extensive restrictions imposed by these countries on religious minorities. The UN underlined the partisanship that China exercises on Uyghur Muslims and Pakistan imposes on Christians, Hindus, and Ahmadis among others.

In fact, even Maldives has snubbed Pakistan over Kashmir stating that repealing Article 370 is an internal matter of India. This was conveyed to Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Quereshi by his Maldivian counterpart Abdulla Shahid over a telephonic conversation.


Pakistan, in a bid to demolish India on global platforms, is now left alone to fend support on Kashmir. Its move to shame India by internationalising Kashmir issue has backfired massively as the global community stands firm in support of India over Kashmir and Article 370.
