ISLAMABAD: In the wake of New Delhi stripping occupied Kashmir of its special status by abrogating Article 370, Prime Minister Imran Khan formed on Tuesday a high-powered committee to devise a future course of action for Pakistan.

The committee, comprising seven members, is also tasked to develop a political, diplomatic and legal framework by which the government could proceed on the longstanding issue with the Narendra Modi-led government.

The committee includes the foreign minister, attorney general, foreign secretary, and DG ISPR, among others.

A notification in this regard was issued by the prime minister’s secretary Azam Khan.

The changes imposed by Modi’s Hindu nationalist-led government are the most sweeping in the nearly 30 years that India has been battling a freedom struggle in occupied Kashmir.

Indian Occupied Kashmir has been in the grip of a rebellion against Indian rule since 1989, and analysts have warned the scrapping of its autonomous status could trigger fresh unrest.

    looks like Imran doing his best to pacify his country men, try to understand what is special status and also retrospect if any Pakistan land is given such privilege in past 70 years.Recommend
