NEW DELHI: In a major embarrassment to Pakistan a day after the Narendra Modi government decided to abolish Article 370, pro-India posters were seen in the capital city of Islamabad. The posters titled "Mahabharat- A set forward" were spotted by one Sajid, a resident of Islamabad, who wondered what's wrong with the people of his country.

The posters quoted Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut who on Monday said: "Today, we have reclaimed Jammu and Kashmir. Tomorrow, we will take Balochistan, PoK and I have trust that this government will fulfill the dream of undivided India."




The video of Sajid spotting the posters on what seems to be a highway was shared by a Pakistani journalist.



The Indian government on Monday revoked Article 370 which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir. Rajya Sabha approved the resolution abrogating Article 370 and a bill to bifurcate the state into two union territories, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, with Home Minister Amit Shah saying the controversial provisions were responsible for poverty and lack of development in the state.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has reacted sharply to the Monday's developments in Jammu and Kashmir insisting that with an approach like this, "incidents like Pulwama are bound to happen again", the Dawn reported.

"I can already predict this will happen. They will attempt to place the blame on us again. They may strike us again, and we will strike back," Khan told his country's Parliament on Tuesday.

"What will happen then? They will attack us and we will respond and the war can go both ways... But if we fight a war till we shed the last drop of our blood, who will win that war? No one will win it and it will have grievous consequences for the entire world. This is not nuclear blackmail," he added.

Addressing a joint session of the National Assembly on Tuesday to discuss the country's future course of action in the wake of India's decision to revoke Article 370 of its Constitution, stripping Jammu and Kashmir of its special status, Khan said that his government's priority was to improve relations with all of Pakistan's neighbours because it was vital to improve the country's economic situation.
