Meanwhile, Pakistan has been raising a hue and cry over Kashmir but it keeps falling own its own face at home. Pakistan has been harping on taking the matter to the International Court of Justice but its lawyer in the world court Khawar Qureshi has said that Pakistan doesn’t have enough evidence to take the Kashmir issue to the Hague.
Earlier, Pakistan had tried to take matter to the United Nations Security Council but attempt was a big flop. Most countries have backed India’s stand on the matter that Kashmir is India’s internal matter where no 3rd party mediation is required.
