RAWALPINDI: DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor shared a video clip on Thursday of a group of foreign media correspondents in Pakistan who visited the Line of Control (LoC).

Major-General Asif Ghafoor took to Twitter to share a video clip in which the media correspondents can be seen visiting the LoC and interacting with locals.

The DG ISPR stated how Pakistan’s Kashmir was open for foreign media correspondents to visit and see for themselves but at the same time, Indian-occupied Kashmir was under lockdown and the press were not allowed to operate.

“A group of foreign media correspondents in Pakistan visited LOC. Briefed about situation and Indian ceasefire violations deliberately targeting civilian population. Correspondents also freely interacted with locals. IOJ&K remains locked down under curfew hiding Indian atrocities,” he wrote.

Tensions have soared between India and Pakistan ever since New Delhi scrapped Article 370 of the constitution. Article 370 recognised the special status of Kashmir. Indian forces have imposed curfew-like restrictions in the occupied valley for the past 25 days.

Methods of communication including telephone and internet connections have been shut down. Islamabad reacted sharply to New Delhi’s move, suspending trade with it and downgrading diplomatic ties.

Prime Minister Imran Khan vowed that he would be the ambassador of Kashmir till the crisis was not resolved. He said that history would prove that Modi made a blunder in occupied Kashmir.
