Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman Anurag Shrivastava has said that the Government of India rejects the attempt of the Government of Pakistan to bring illegal and forced physical changes in the Indian territory.
He said, “I reiterate that the so-called Gilgit-Baltistan region is an integral part of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir of India legally and as per the 1947 merger agreement.”
“Rather than seeking to change the condition of these Indian territories, we appeal to Pakistan to immediately evacuate all areas under its illegal occupation.”

He said that “this decision has been taken keeping in mind the resolutions of the UN Security Council”.

Imran said, “Modi government believes only in the idea of Hindutva and innocent Kashmiri people are persecuted based on that ideology.”
“For the progress and prosperity of Pakistan, it is very important to have a strong law and order and those who want to give a bad credit to the Pakistan Army and the judiciary of Pakistan, they do not want to give any credit, they are speaking the language of Modi.”
