EFSAS comments on the hypocrisy in Pakistan’s Jammu & Kashmir policy


Qureshi, while supporting the demand of the political parties for restoration of Articles 370 and 35A, seemed to have completely lost sight of the stellar role that Pakistan had played in getting the articles diluted in the first place. The imperative of dealing more effectively with Pakistan-sponsored terrorism and the need to better address the deleterious broader impact that violence was having on all aspects of life and governance in J&K were among the weightier arguments that India had put forth to justify the dilution of Articles 370 and 35A. The irony and the hypocrisy that came across in Qureshi’s profession of support for the demands of the J&K political parties were, therefore, quite stark.
