Pakistan Railway minister Sheikh Rasheed has made himself a matter of fun in the past days due to his ludicrous speeches against India after India abrogated Article 370 to integrate Jammu and Kashmir. He has on Sunday warned India of the '250 grams and 500 gram bombs' possessed by Pakistan. In yet another speech, the minister who is now well known for the electric shock he got on uttering Prime Minister Modi's name, said that they can use 1 inch or half a inch of their atomic bomb against India as needed. "India should remember, we have 250 gram to 500 gram bomb. I am warning India from Baba Guru Nanak's station that we have 250 gram to 500 gram of atomic bomb. We know we just need to use an inch of it, half an inch of it, 3/4th inch or 2 inch of it", he declared.
As Imran Khan staged a so-called 'solidarity protest' under the name of Kashmir hour against the alleged atrocity inflicted on the people of Kashmir on Friday, his ministers got shock because of Modi's name, quite literally. Pakistan y announced that to show solidarity to Kashmir people all across the country will stop their work from 12- 12:30 and stand up literally. To ensure that people actually stop their work, several roads in various cities were blocked. Many of Pakistan's ministers held protest and spoke against Prime Minister 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 embarrassment says that Modi sent shock but we will not stop the protest even as the crowd breaks into uncontrollable laughter.

Following the incident the video went viral on Internet and the minister on Friday accused India of electrocuting him and wanting him to die. While speaking at a press conference on Saturday, Sheikh Rashid said, "India wants me to die. Let India know that I won't die that easy." Earlier on August 28, Sheikh Rasheed had predicted that India and Pakistan would go on a full-blown war in either October or November. On August 23, Sheikh Rasheed was pelted with eggs and was allegedly punched for using "abusive language" against Pakistan Opposition leader Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in London. He even added that both Samjhauta Express and Thar Express trains were shut down in order to express solidarity with the people of Kashmir.
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 blackout and curfew was imposed. However after a week, several communication facilities were resumed. 23 days after the abrogation, Centre claims that situation is normal, however some restrictions in the valley are still in place.
