Exiled Pakistan minister and Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) founder Altaf Hussain on Sunday sang 'Sare Jahan se acha'. In a live address on Saturday that was publicised by the MQM Secretariat in London, he said that abrogation of Article 370 was India's internal matter. He was exiled in 90s and had then applied for asylum in UK. At a time when the relation between India and Pakistan remains strained because Pakistan is not ready to accept the abrogation of Article 370 as India's internal matter, Hussain singing India's patriotic song comes as a major development. See the video below:
As Imran Khan staged a so-called 'solidarity protest' against the alleged atrocity inflicted on the people of Kashmir on Friday, his ministers got shock because of Modi's name, quite literally. Pakistan PM Imran Khan this week announced that to show solidarity to Kashmir after India abrogated Article 370, people all across the country will stop their work from 12- 12:30 and stand up literally. To ensure that people actuallly stop their work, several roads in various cities were blocked. Many of Pakistan's ministers held protest and spoke against PM Modi's administration. Among them was Minister of Railways of Pakistan Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad who literally got electric shock as soon as he began criticising Modi. The leader in utter embarrasement says that Modi sent shock but we will not stop the protest even as the crowd breaks into uncontrollable laughter. Watch the video of Pakistan minister getting shock on taking PM Modi's name:

On August 5, India abrogated Article 370 of the Constitution that provided special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The Indian Parliament also bifurcated the state into two Union Territories -- Jammu Kashmir, and Ladakh. Reacting to India's decision, Pakistan expelled the Indian High Commissioner soon after deciding to downgrade the diplomatic ties with New Delhi. India has categorically told the international community that its move to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution is its internal matter and has also advised Pakistan to accept the reality. As a preventive measure, Centre also placed leaders in Kashmir - Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti into detention, and ordered communication backout and curfew was imposed. However after a week, several communication facilities were resumed. 23 days after the abrogation, Centre claims that situtaion is normal, however some restrictions in the valley are still in place.
