US media reports reveal India is frustrated over diplomtic rise of Pakistan in the World and IOK action can be result of that
ISLAMABAD -United States media reports reveal India is frustrated over diplomtic rise of Pakistan in the World and Indian Occupied Kashmir action can be result of that.
A report in the *Washington Post* link pointed out that such “measures have sparked fears in Kashmir that New Delhi is planning to scrap an Indian constitutional provision that forbids Indians from outside the region from buying land in the Muslim-majority territory”.
*The New York Times* also published this report link, noting that in recent days, “India has deployed at least 10,000 troops in Kashmir, with media reports of a further 25,000 ordered to one of the world’s most militarised regions”.
Posts on the social media warned that doing away with the constitutional provisions that protect Kashmir’s status was “stoking fires in the region”.
The posts speculated that one of the main reasons for the Indian move could be its disappointment with the restoration of Pakistan’s role in the Afghan peace process, “which could seriously curtail India’s influence in that country”.
One post noted that India was also concerned about Pakistan’s efforts to restore its ties with the United States and with Washington’s decision to resume repair and refurbishing of the F-16 fighter jets Pakistan has been using.
Some posts also noted that at a recent congressional hearing, the nominated head of the US armed forces, Gen Mark A. Milley, advocated maintaining strong ties with the Pakistani military.
Reports in the *Post* and *NYT* noted that recent escalations had come amid “offers by President Trump to mediate to resolve the Kashmir issue”.
The US media pointed out that several other governments had also issued travel advisories, urging its citizens to leave India-held Kashmir.
The reports noted that in its election manifesto earlier this year, Prime Minister Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party promised to do away with special rights for Kashmiris under India’s constitution.
