While speaking at an event on Tuesday, the Pakistani minister said, those who are with India must beware that if situation against India escalates, and if they are standing with India, then if one missile is fired at India, another will be fired at them.
Gandapur was also spotted outside ‘Howdy, Modi!’ event in Houston, Texas last month and had mobilised Pakistanis to join the anti-Modi protests at the event.
Gandapur’s anti-India threat comes after Pakistan has been snubbed by major countries and world bodies on Kashmir issue stating that abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir is an internal matter of India. Pakistan has failed to garner international support except for China and Turkey.
On 5th August, Government of India abrogated Article 370 which gave separate status to Jammu & Kashmir and made the state an integral part of India without any riders attached. The state was bifurcated into two union territories, Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh which will become official on 1st November.
