An embarrassed Rahul Gandhi whose quotes where he had said that there was violence in Jammu and Kashmir was used by Pakistan in its UNHRC letter claiming human rights violation by India in the valley, has tweeted a clarification. Pakistan had written a letter to United Nations Human Rights Council saying that there was violence in Kashmir after it was integrated with India. It quoted the Congress leader as well as PDP Mehbooba Mufti to back its claim. Mufti had called the revocation of Article 370 the 'darkest day' in Indian democracy.
In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi said that he disagreed with the Centre on many issues, but wanted to clarify that 'Kashmir is India’s internal issue and there is no room for Pakistan or any other foreign country to interfere in it'. He said there is violence in Jammu & Kashmir owing because Pakistan as it instigates and supports terrorism.
I disagree with this Govt. on many issues. But, let me make this absolutely clear: Kashmir is India’s internal issue & there is no room for Pakistan or any other foreign country to interfere in it.— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) August 28, 2019
There is violence in Jammu & Kashmir. There is violence because it is instigated and supported by Pakistan which is known to be the prime supporter of terrorism across the world.— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) August 28, 2019
Pakistan's letter to the UNHRC where it makes a case that there is human rights violation in Kashmir, says 'violence acknowledged by Rahul Gandhi who has noted people dying there'. The letter by Pakistan says, "These and other acts of violence have even been acknowledged by mainstream politicians, such as the leader of the Congress party, Mr. Rahul Gandhi who has noted, 'people dying' in Jammu and Kashmir in light of events 'going very wrong there.'" The letter also quotes Mehbooba Mufti where she called the revocation of Jammu and Kashmir the darkest day of Indian democracy. Pakistan has written a paragraph describing Gandhi's statement supporting their narrative.
