The Prime Minister’s visit to ISI Headquarters comes at a time when India is trying to seek an opportunity to stage a false flag against Pakistan for extending political and diplomatic support to the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had already written a letter to the UNSC President and UN Secretary General to highlight Pakistan’s concerns. On the other hand, there is no let up in ceaseless violations of ceasefire on LoC through unprovoked firing by the Indian security forces targeting the civilians.

The Prime Minister has been repeatedly saying that Indian government’s policies are seriously threatening peace and security in South Asia. He had also expressed his concern over the continuing “double lockdown” in Occupied Kashmir, intensification of military crackdown by occupation forces in occupied Kashmir, and changes in domicile law, which would enable non-Kashmiri Indians to settle in the disputed area. The Prime Minister stated on many occasions that India is altering the demographic structure of the occupied territory in violation of UN Security Council resolutions and international law, including the 4th Geneva Convention. He also stated that India is following expansionist policy as a result its relations with all of its neighbours including Pakistan, China, Nepal and others.
