Kashmir Fake Photo: Fallout From the UN Speech by Pakistan’s Maleeha Lodhi
Kashmir has been a bone of contention between India and Pakistan since 1947 and the South Asian neighbours have fought two fully fledged wars and a limited conflict over the disputed region.
Earlier that weekend, their representatives had been involved in a bitter war of words at the UN General Assembly.
Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, accused India of “war crimes” in Kashmir and of “exporting terror” to Pakistan.
In response, Indian envoy Eenam Gambhir described Pakistan as “Terroristan with a flourishing industry producing and exporting global terrorism”. Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said India had “produced scholars, doctors, engineers” while Pakistan had “produced terrorists”.
