Kashmir has always been an issue between Pakistan and India, right from the times the two countries were partitioned and segragated into different nations! In recent times, there has been a lot of furore over Kashmir and its inhabitants, ever since the Article 370 which gave special status to Jammu & Kashmir was rendered inoperative. Pakistan has been claiming that Muslims are being oppressed in Kashmir and a recent political map released by Pakistan claims a significant part of Kashmir as their territory. There have been a lot of disputes between the Pakistani Armed Forces & Indian Armed Forces, especially over insurgency along the border in the Jammu & Kashmir regions! Now, a shocking incident has come to light from Pakistan!
A Pakistani man had released a funny TikTok video criticising the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, over the inclusion of Kashmir, in its recently released political map! As this video spread, he was caught and beaten up by his area locals publicly, even as law enforcement officials arrested him and took him away! The new map was unveiled on August 4th by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, including regions in Jammu & Kashmir and parts of Gujarat! Imran Khan released the map and while subsequently addressing the Press, mentioned, "Today is a historic day as we have launched a new political map of Pakistan, which is as per the aspirations of our entire nation as well as the people of Kashmir!" He also added, "This map also opposes the Indian Government's illegal act of August 5, last year!"
India had immediately responded to this new map, calling that the ridiculous assertions made by Pakistan have no legal validity as well as international credibility! Calling this new move "absurd", the Indian External Affairs Ministry had released a statement telling, "This is an exercise in political absurdity, laying untenable claims to territories in the Indian state of Gujarat and our Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir, as well as Ladakh!" The man who made the hilarious TikTok video was arrested by the authorities and even as he was being taken to the Police van, the locals as well as the Police assaulted him. A video of this incident has been going on social media, since!
