A Pakistan minister threatened countries that support India over Kashmir will be hit by missiles and considered as an “enemy” of Islamabad.
Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur at an event on Tuesday said, “If tensions with India rise on Kashmir, Pakistan will be compelled to go to war. Those countries backing India and not Pakistan (over Kashmir) will be considered our enemy and a missile will be fired at India and those nations supporting it.”
Tensions between India and Pakistan spiked after New Delhi abrogated Article 370 that granted special powers to Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, and also enforcing a communication blackout and curfew that restricted people’s movements.
India has maintained that the decision is its internal matter. However, Pakistan has used every international forum since then to talk about Kashmir. In his UN speech Prime Minister Imran Khan raked up consequences if it all bottomed down to a nuclear war with India.
India has somewhat tried to justify to the world its policies in Jammu and Kashmir, but Pakistan is not gained much backing for their rhetoric.
