As per our research, Whenever Pakistan Economy is in Shambles, Pakistan creates trouble in Kashmir to divert the attention of its public from its economic failures.
History is the witness, whenever Pakistan Economy is in shambles, Pakistan has played the Kashmir card, in order to divert the attention of its public from the economic failure.
We discussed at length about Pakistan’s economic in shambles state and its failure in a series of our previous articles:
Can Failed Pakistan Survive Without Loans And Foreign Aid?
IMF Bailout Loan To Pakistan: Throwing Public Money In Drain
Pakistan To Face Multi-Billion-Dollar Penalty Over Stalled Iran Pakistan Gas Pipeline
Pakistan Lost Arbitration Proceedings. Slapped With A Penalty Of $6 Billion In Reko Diq Case.
Pakistan Lost Appeal Against Broadsheet. Ordered $33 Million As Penalty
Moreover, continuous onslaught of Afghanistan Security forces on Pakistan sponsored Taliban Terrorists, the routes of smuggling of minerals and precious stones from mines in Afghanistan are being closed. We covered this in detail in our previous article Army Plunges Taliban Revenue Sources In Afghanistan. Frees Nephrite Mine From Taliban
Pakistan economy is in shambles and is on the verge of Bankruptcy and has taken another Bailout Loan from IMF. However as mentioned in the above articles, the liabilities of Pakistan are increasing day by day.
Moreover, as mentioned in our recent article Pakistani Swindler Arif Naqvi Of Abraaj Investment Defrauds US Investors Of Over $1 Billion, Pakistani swindler Arif Naqvi is facing extradition in UK. He owns K Electric in Karachi, Pakistan that he has contracted to sell to Chinese company for $1.6 Billion. Most of that revenue will also go in paying off the Global Investors he defrauded. Pakistan Economy will be left in Shambles.
The fact that Prime Minister Imran khan had to preside over a meeting to fix the prices of Roti and Naan, shows how Pakistan economy is in shambles and situation is getting worst day by day.
It is pertinent to mention here that people in Occupied Balochistan, Muhajirs and Sindhis in Sindh want to break away from Pakistan and form small new Independent Nations. Similarly, there is a great discontent in Pashtun regions who also want to break away from tyrannical rule of Pakistan. Pakistan is left limited to the Punjab Province.
In order to hide all the failures, Pakistan has decided to try its decades old tactics to raise Kashmir issue and cry like babies.
What did Pakistan Do Recently?
Pakistan started continuous ceasefire violations on its border with India on the Line of Control. They used small and medium guns to fire at Indian Positions.
Tried to infiltrate large number of Terrorists in India to foment trouble in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Started hundreds of social media handles including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to rake in Khalistan issue to cause communal tensions in India.
Moved its artillery guns near the Neelum Jhelum Valley, which houses Chinese Engineers working on the power project, Foreign Tourist who visit Pakistan Occupied Kashmir to see Neelum Jhelum Dam.
As per one source, “Pakistan knew India uses weapons locating radars and can fire in the direction of the artillery fire. Pakistan used the same location of the Dam to fire on the Indian side of the Line of Control. Pakistan Army huddled the foreign tourists and Chinese workers in the Pakistan Army run bunkers.”
“Knowing very well that Indian retaliation will target the Pakistan Army bunkers, Pakistan put the lives of Foreign tourists in POK at risk and used them as human shields. If there would have been any causalities, Pakistan would have cried wolf in front of the whole world to blame India. However, that narrative of Pakistan failed. On retaliation by Indian Army, artillery fire hit at a little distance from the Dam.”
One of the OSINT handles on Twitter @detresfa_ released satellite imagery of the Neelum Jhelum Dam showing that the Dam was not hit.
As per him, the Fresh Satellite images show no damage on the dam structure and its immediate area. But it only proves how close the Indian Army was and how range correction could have devastating impacts.
As per sources: Heightened activities of Pakistan based terror groups including the JeM/LeT noticed. These groups are in the process of aggressively planning series of infiltration of armed cadre to undertake major terror attacks. These include suicidal attacks at multiple locations in J&K.
Information has also been received of location of Pakistan based JeM trained cadre in Muzaffarabad (PoK) for collaboration with Pakistan Army elements in the forward posts along the LoC for BAT and armed action against the Indian armed forces in the coming days. (Top Govt Sources)
Pakistan based terror group Jaish e Muhammad has also plans to undertake IED attack on security forces in Sopore area of North Kashmir as per Intel inputs. Trained cadres have also been identified in Peshawar for infiltration into J&K for armed action against security forces.
Other groups like Hizbul Mujahideen have been directed by senior terror commanders based in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) to collaborate and work closely with other Pakistan based terror groups especially with the purpose of planting of IEDs in South Kashmir and Srinagar in future.

Article 370 harmful for the people of Kashmir
In an interview, Former Minister Arif Mohammad Khan said that the Article 370 of the Indian Constitution that gives autonomous status to the state of J&K must be deleted from Indian Constitution because, its harmful for the people of Kashmir. It takes away the rights of the people.
He gave an example that if due to any reasons the nomination papers of any candidate are rejected in any elections, the aggrieved person can approach the Election commission. However due to the Article 370 people of Kashmir cannot approach Election Commission. He explained why Article 370 should be removed.
However as per news coming, hate mongering, dynastic Kashmiri politicians are doing everything possible to incite Kashmir people against giving up Article 360. As per sources, the Article 360 is responsible for the massive wealth accumulated by these Dynastic politicians that belongs to the Kashmiri people.
In a Tweet, Ex-CM Omar Abdullah tweeted a screenshot showing fare charges of flights flying from Srinagar to New Delhi with costs ranging between Indian Rs. 41,255 to Rs. 51,500. In his tweet Omar Abdullah stated, “These are the fares people traveling out of Srinagar are being forced to pay. Yatris will get special flights and controlled fares but what will happen to patients, students and other people who have to travel. @HardeepSPuri please look in to this & do justice to ordinary flyers.”
However, on a closer look at the screenshot we noted that the fare was for 2 adults and 1 child and 1 infant. He conveniently hid the fact that the flight charges were for 4 and not 1 person.
Meanwhile Pakistan trolls are spreading rumors regarding the House Arrest of Ex-CM Mehbooba Mufti however we verified, and it was fake to foment trouble in Indian Kashmir. Mufti after her press conference in Srinagar went to meet Farooq Abdullah at his residence. She thereafter met Sajad Lone at his residence. She met other politicians as well.
Meanwhile, thousands of Pakistani Troll Twitter handles spreading Fake rumors. We investigated one such Rumor peddled by the Pakistani Troll to spread hatred in Kashmir.
In one of the tweets, a Pakistani Troll shared a picture of a small boy with a shrapnel injury on the shoulder. However the face of the boy clearly doesn’t look like the Pakistani’s living in the region.
As per a Twitter user @Defence_360 who searched the image online, told that the image was of a Syrian boy injured with the shrapnel, while Pakistan is using such image for their Propaganda.
UK Travel Advisory for its Citizens travelling to the state of Jammu & Kashmir
UK issued a Travel Advisory for its Citizens travelling to the state of Jammu & Kashmir after Indian Government advised Amarnath Yatra Pilgrims and Tourists to leave Kashmir Valley due to prevailing security situation. There is a risk of unpredictable violence including bombings, grenade attacks, shooting.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to Jammu and Kashmir with the exception of (i) travel within the city Jammu, (ii) travel by air to the city of Jammu, (iii) travel within the region of Ladakh. The FCO advise against all but essential travel to the city of Srinagar and travel between the cities of Jammu and Srinagar on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway. The tourist destinations of Pahalgam, Gulmarg and Sonamarg fall within the areas to which the FCO advise against all travel.
As per the advisory Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in India. Recent attacks have targeted public places including those visited by foreigners. There have been recent media reports suggesting Daesh (formerly referred to as ISIL) may have an interest in attacking targets in India. There may be an increased threat to places visited by British nationals such as religious sites, markets, festival venues and beaches. You should be vigilant at this time, monitor local media and take all precautions for your safety.
Pakistan Economy in Shambles
Currently Pakistan is facing many difficulties the list is below:
1. Pakistan Economy is in Shambles. Financial condition is bad.
2. Tourism Industry has collapsed
3. Unstable government, hence, FDI inflows are reduced; There are no hopes for better economic conditions.
4. Local industry is diminishing as their market is now influenced by cheap Chinese products
5. High costs of essential commodities, unaffordable for common people
The people of Pakistan are now looking towards newly (that’s what they believe despite it was done a year ago) beloved & handsome, third class degree holder from Oxford, Prime Minister Imran Khan that he will take some decisions that will bring Pakistan Economy out of Shambles.
In reality the newly elected PM turned out to be just a spokesperson, of Pakistan Army, an organization, which only sees their own benefits and nothing else. The Pakistan Army is now feeling the heat as their cash in-flows, which was mostly coming from foreign countries in form of Aid, Loan & Financial packages has seen a massive drop.
Pakistan had been blackmailing US and Europe that unless they keep giving Foreign financial Aid to the failed, bankrupt economy, Pakistan will unleash its armies of Terrorists on the entire world. If that is done, Pakistan will fall apart and it is not far before the Nuclear piles fall in hands of the Terrorists who will threaten Non-Islamic countries with Nuclear attacks. Pakistan is not only sending its terrorist armies to India, but to Afghanistan as well.
There is need to divert everyone’s attention from core issue and to get the fund, hence the organization is now facing towards Militancy route. IN past, they have successfully use their ONLY available infrastructure to gain sympathy from world powers and also financial aid. They are now trying to attack their own assets, which failed miserably and also the tactic is exposed well ago. The new thing now is to draw attention of world by trying to sneak into Indian territory and attack Pilgrims of Amarnath. More than 2000 US soldiers laid their lives fighting the Taliban Terrorists sponsored and armed by Pakistan Army and its Intelligence Agency ISI.
Pakistan is also following the policy of bleeding its Eastern Neighbor India with a policy of 1000 cuts. For last several decades. Author Gordon Thomas states that whilst aiding in the capture of Al Qaeda members, Pakistan “still sponsored terrorist groups in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, funding, training and arming them in their war of attrition against India”. Journalist Stephen Schwartz notes that several terrorist and criminal groups are “backed by senior officers in the Pakistani army, the country’s ISI intelligence establishment and other armed bodies of the state”.
Every year Pakistan Army shells on Indian side of the Line of Control to help their trained terrorists to infiltrate in Indian side of Kashmir.
After the Pulwama Terrorist suicide attack killing 44 Indian Paramilitary personnel, and the resultant Balakot Air Strikes by India killing around 300 Terrorists at different locations, India has tightened the security at its western border. Punjabi dominated Pakistan army is trying its best to support infiltration but has met limited success.
As mentioned earlier, Pakistan has formed squads of Border Action Team (BAT) that comprise of a mix of commandos of Pakistan Army and the Terrorists trained by them.
As Pakistan is unable to send more terrorists into Indian side of Kashmir, they this time took new tactic, which is by moving their own artillery gun to Neelum Jhelum Valley, which is currently house of tourists and also there is presence of foreign delegations, who are currently working on Neelum Jhelum Dam.
Pakistan trying to link situation at LoC with ongoing Afghan peace process
Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has linked the situation at Line of Control (LoC) with ongoing Afghan peace process saying action by the Indian Army is a “distraction”.
Speaking to a Pakistani media channel, Qureshi said, “On one hand the Afghan peace process is going through a critical stage. US Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad has reached Doha after a successful visit to Islamabad. He has an important meeting in Doha. The action by the Indian Army is a distraction. These spoilers can impact peace.”
Former Indian envoy to Afghanistan Amar Sinha told WION, “There is no connection between Pak cooperation on Taliban and what is happening in India. I guess they are just seeking a way out of their commitments made to President Trump. Tough for Pakistan to cut its umbilical cord with terror groups including the Taliban.”
People on social media are making fun of Pakistan rants. One Twitter user said “Oops.. The war hasn’t started yet… Pakistan is already crying before the international community…. Dabey alfaz mein Pakistanis are screaming “save us otherwise India will screw us’…
Another Twitter user said, “Pakistan is crying like a baby. Papa Papa neighbor hit me… Pakistan thinks that it can use its leverage on Taliban Terrorists to get gains in Indian Kashmir. From one side Afghanistan will hit, from other India. Condition like a Launderer’s Donkey.”
Allegations of Indian Army using Cluster Bombs
Pakistan alleged on Saturday that Indian Army is using cluster ammunition along the Line of Control (LoC).
The Indian Army rejected Pakistan’s allegations terming it as “lies, deceit, and deception”. Indian Army in a statement replied, “Pakistan army regularly attempts to push terrorists through infiltration and opens up with multitude of weapons to assist them. India, during numerous Directorate of Military Operations-level talks, has maintained the right to respond. Such responses are only against military targets and infiltrating terrorists who are aided by Pakistan Army. Allegations of firing of cluster bombs by India is yet another Pakistan’s lie deceit and deception.”
Major Gaurav Arya (Retd) in his tweet tore apart Pakistan’s lies. In his tweet, Major Gaurav Arya said, “Dear @SMQuereshiPTI Cluster ammunition is ammunition that releases submunitions. You have Tweeted image of a mortar shell. Send me the entire picture and I will tell you the “type”. You committed the same mistake that all Pakistanis do. You believed the Pak Army. Funny & sad.”
Since Pakistan Economy will remain in shambles for a long time, We expect Pakistan to create more trouble for its neighbor to divert the attention of its people from the economic failure, freedom movement in Occupied Balochistan, Sindh and Pashuns.
