As the situation in Jammu and Kashmir is gradually coming back to normal, some elements, especially Pakistanis are having a hard time to digest that normalcy is prevailing in the Valley. One Pakistani journalist, Waj Khan, in order to continue to paint gloom in Kashmir was exposed by CRPF for spreading fake news and misinformation about the condition in the state.
The malicious content of this tweet is absolutely baseless and untrue. As always, all the security forces of India are working with coordination and bonhomie. Patriotism and our tricolour lie at the core of our hearts and existence, even when the color of our uniforms may differ. pic.twitter.com/1Rhrm09dPN

Khan had tweeted that there is a rift between the Jammu and Kashmir Police and the CRPF personnel in the state as one Muslim Kashmiri Policeman killed 5 CRPF soldiers for not allowing a pregnant woman to travel as she didn’t have a curfew pass.
However, the official Twitter account of CRPF was quick to admonish the malicious lies peddled by the Pakistani journalist. Asserting that tricolour beats in the heart of all the law enforcement agencies in the country, even though their uniforms may differ, CRPF stated that the news propagated by the said Pakistani journalist is absolutely baseless and untrue. It also stated that all security agencies work in tandem and share bonhomie with each other.
Kashmir police have also dismissed the claim and have stated that the Pakistani journalist’s malicious tweet has been reported to Twitter.

Pakistan is thoroughly rattled by India’s decision to abrogate Article 370. Pakistan PM Imran Khan had warned that Pulwama kind of attacks might happen again after India’s decision. Pakistan also took its fulminations to the UNSC, only to be snubbed by its chief. The UNSC chief reminded Pakistan of the Shimla Agreement and refused to intervene in the matter claiming it’s a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan.
Last week, on Monday, August 6, India struck down the partition relic of Article 370 and bifurcated the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories. A curfew was imposed in the state to prevent chaos and disorder. The curfew is being relaxed or tightened in many areas in the state based on the ground situation as assessed by the security agencies.
