Congress lambasted over tweet showing Azad Kashmir as part of Pakistan

India and Pakistan have been at loggerheads for the past 71 years and any controversial statement from either side is often met with severe criticism.

The Indian side of late has been openly accusing Pakistan for spreading cross-border terrorism and has shown no room for peace with Pakistan, thanks to the “nationalist” policy of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In a recent development, the youth wing of the Indian National Congress, the country’s chief opposition party, has been excoriated by Twitterati for tweeting a post showing Azad Kashmir as part of Pakistan.

The last week’s tweet criticised Indian premier Modi for allowing Pakistan to “silently increase nuclear warheads” while he busied himself delivering only “verbal strikes.” The INC youth wing also adviced the Indian PM to formulate a stringent approach with Pakistan.

Twitterati in India were quick to react and lambasted the INC. The Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha (BJYM) accused the opposition party’s youth wing of “spreading fake news”.

One user said the party’s youth wing would sell Kashmir once it ascended to power, while another even questioned the INC’s loyalty to the nation.
