Since US President Donald Trump has denied intervening in Kashmir issue after meeting with PM Modi in France, Pakistan is just trying to internationalise the Kashmir issue. Pakistan wrote a petition to the UN over Kashmir issue that states human rights violations in the region that has rejected by India several times.

Pakistan's Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari wrote a letter over Article 370 scrapped in Jammu-Kashmir. Mazari even quoted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's tweet claiming that he noted "people dying" in Jammu and Kashmir.


Mazari said in his letter, "Acts of violence have been acknowledged by mainstream politicians, such as the leader of the Congress party, Mr. Rahul Gandhi who has noted "people dying" in Jammu and Kashmir, in light of events "going very wrong there."

However, after this letter, Rahul Gandhi has cleared his statement on the issue and tweeted, "There is violence in Jammu & Kashmir. There is violence because it is instigated and supported by Pakistan which is known to be the prime supporter of terrorism across the world."


Even Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said, "We have noticed reports citing an alleged petition moved by the Pakistani government in United Nations on Jammu and Kashmir wherein the name of Rahul Gandhi has been mischievously dragged to justify the pack of lies and deliberate misinformation being spread by Pakistan."

 "Let no one in the world be in doubt that Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh were, are and shall always remain an integral part of India. No amount of diabolical deception by Pakistan shall change this irrevocable truth." he added.
