For Pakistan it is difficult to accept that Kashmir is on its way to progress: India
New Delhi : The prospects of a better Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir following the abrogation of the Article 370 "cuts the ground under the feet of Pakistan", said Indian Ambassador to US Harsh Vardhan Shringla.
In an opinion article, published by New York Times, Singhla said that the Pakistan has a "vested interest in preventing prosperity in Jammu and Kashmir, and in Ladakh area of Kashmir."
"This fits into Pakistan's larger strategy of using terrorism as a political tool. This is a country whose fingerprints are on terrorist strikes across the world and that was home to Osama bin Laden in his last days. So it also opposes the repeal of Article 370, which legitimized discrimination and hindered economic progress," Shringla said in response to an op-ed published by Pakistan Prime Minister.
Over the past few weeks, Pakistan has been releasing "plethora of comments", proposing a different picture of India over its decision on Jammu and Kashmir and raising the threat of nuclear war with India.
"Clearly, this prospect for a more prosperous Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh, cuts the ground under the feet of Pakistan. Its prime minister claims that he offered to work for peace, progress and prosperity with India. What he does not say is that the assembly line of terrorists that is a major industry of his country continues without pause," he said.
He claimed that Pakistan is not ready to accept the fact that the life in Jammu and Kashmir is now returning on track.
