Pakistani media uses Congress MPs and other opposition leaders’ speech in Parliament to further their agenda on Kashmir

The unsubstantiated claims by the opposition leaders cast aspersions on the government's aim and undermine their credibility which is then exploited by enemies of India to further their propaganda.

Since yesterday when Prime Minister Modi-led BJP government secured a Presidential order abolishing Article 370 and brought a bill to bifurcate Jammu and Kashmir, rattled Pakistanis have been endlessly ranting about India’s internal matter, claiming that India’s move to create two Union Territories is in contravention to the UN conventions agreed upon by Jawaharlal Nehru in 1948.

India’s position over the Kashmir issue has always been the same. India has always maintained that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and any discussions with Pakistan will only be bilateral. Regardless of the party ruling the centre, the national position has always been the same. India had even conveyed the same to US President Donald Trump recently when he had declared in media that he is willing to mediate.

However, in the blind race of political ambition and to vilify the ruling party, some Indian politicians have been displaying time and again that they are willing to put the interest of the nation in the backburner and try to vilify the ruling party at any cost. This tendency provides fodder to India’s enemies to further their agenda.

Regardless of the truth, Pakistanis anchors are using Indian politicians’ opposition to Jammu and Kashmir’s special status ensured by Article 370 and the bifurcation for governance efficiency in their shows to afford credibility to their bluster.

Twitter user Ankur Singh has shared a video clip of a news show aired by Pakistan’s Geo tv where Pakistani anchor Hamid Mir can be seen showing Indian politicians’ statements against the abrogation of Article 370 to drive home his point that Indian government’s move is illegal and repressive as the opposition leaders in their parliament have themselves pointed out.

Pakistani news channel Geo TV showed objections held by the Congress politicians and other opposition leaders repudiating the central government’s stand vis-a-vis Jammu and Kashmir. The Pakistani news channel showed Congress senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad’s proclamations that BJP had murdered the constitution of India. P Chidambaram stating that it is the Black day in the country’s constitutional history was also broadcasted while slamming India. It also showed RJD leader Manoj Kumar Jha’s apprehensions that Kashmir will turn into Palestine within 5 years.

These statements made by Indian opposition leaders offer enough ammunition to the Pakistani media outlets who instantly lap up their remarks to advance their nefarious propaganda against India. The comments made by Congress politicians and other opposition leaders are co-opted by Pakistanis to project India as an occupying force, engaged in subjugating and repressing Kashmiris through illegal abolition of Article 370 and unwarranted bifurcation of the state.

The Indian government’s intent behind bifurcating Jammu and Kashmir have been directed towards increasing investment, annihilating terrorism and eliminating discrimination in the state. However, the opposition leaders’ unsubstantiated claims cast aspersions on the government’s aim and undermine their credibility which is then exploited by enemies of the state to further their propaganda.

This is not the first time that Congress ministers have echoed sentiments similar to that of Pakistanis. Following the Balakot airstrikes after the Pulwama terror attack, Pakistan’s FM used Congress’ rants to discredit the government of India and the Indian Army. Prior to that Pakistan had used Congress leader Digvijaya Singh’s tweets demanding proofs of airstrikes to target India.
