India on Thursday came down heavily on Pakistan for it’s encouragement and support to UN-designated terrorists and their activities.

In a statement to the media, Ministry of External Affairs told Pakistan to refrain from deplorable meddling in India’s internal affairs in any manner. It also lashed out at Pakistan’s observance of ‘Kashmir’s Accession to Pakistan Day’ saying it exposes Pakistan’s longing for the territory of J&K.

“India asks Pakistan to stop inciting and supporting violence and terrorism in any part of the country. Pak must also stop misleading the international community and Kashmiris through meaningless exercises such as the so-called elections today in PoK which Pakistan ironically calls ‘Azad’ (free),” said MEA in a statement.

The MEA also urged Pakistan to ensure full safety and security of the High Commission, all its officials and their families in Pakistan in view of the threats of marches and protests at the High Commission of India in Islamabad.

India’s retort comes a day after Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that Kashmir is not an internal matter of India, and asked India to hold a plebiscite there to respect the rights of Kashmiris.

In his message, Sharif had said, “Today we are observing Black Day to express solidarity with Kashmiris and are giving a strong message to the world that Pakistanis are with them (Kashmiris) for their struggle to get their rights.”

Sharif said India was committing human rights violation in the “occupied territory” which is a matter of great concern for the world community.

The Prime Minister has earlier directed all relevant departments to highlight the Kashmir issue at international fora.

To observe the Black Day, rallies and events were held across the country and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir to draw attention of the world towards the Kashmir issue.

All officials of federal and provincial governments were seen wearing black band on duty to express “political, moral and diplomatic support” to Kashmiris.

          ... ... . . stan and Indian media is not used to getting strong responses from Indian Govt. and it goes against their idea of "core" Indian ideny of higiri! They would definitely translate this as violation of their rights to get free rides at the expense of majority people, attack on Liberty to abuse the majority people, violation of human rights to lose that option and attack on antisocials as violation of their democratic rights (under the umbrella of people's right) ! lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Opposition's second tactics is when there is a problem they would prefer to engage in pulling BJP's leg instead of giving any constructive solution. One of their senior leader once even asked stan to act against Modi! Such is the loyalty of these people! Just look at the totality of what their responses have been in last couple of years when there has been an issue and what suggestion, if any they have!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;When BJP is trying the address the issue in a responsible and proper way, again they are into their old game: muddy the water first in order to keep fishing!!!

            Before stan is a problem, India's problem is more at home that it has inherited. Streamlining the home front has to be the first priority. Others are just taking advantage of the gaps and s that is being intentionally developed by earlier regime as an investment for their future personal fortune! As a result, now compared to even Bangladesh, India does not have same level of strength to face any challenge!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;And imagine who is clapping!
