"Will Nuclear Power with 130-Cr Population Be Scared of Someone...": Amit Shah Slams Farooq Abdullah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah strongly criticized Jammu and Kashmir National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah’s remarks regarding Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK), asserting that the BJP government is steadfast in reclaiming PoK. Shah emphasized that India, as a nuclear power with a population of 1.3 billion, will not be intimidated by anyone.

In an interview with ANI, Shah questioned Abdullah’s suggestion of giving respect to Pakistan and not demanding PoK, highlighting the absurdity of such a notion. He called upon Rahul Gandhi to clarify the stance of his alliance partner, rejecting any notion of relinquishing India’s claim over PoK.

Shah reaffirmed the BJP’s stance that PoK belongs to India and asserted their determination to reclaim it. Responding to Abdullah’s remarks about Pakistan’s nuclear capabilities, Shah emphasized that decisions regarding PoK integration will be made at the appropriate time, considering the domestic and global context.

Regarding protests in PoK, Shah acknowledged the mismanagement by local authorities but reiterated India’s sovereignty over the region, emphasizing the need to address the issue within India’s framework.

Recent protests in Pakistan-occupied Jammu and Kashmir resulted in fatalities, prompting Pakistan’s Prime Minister to announce a substantial subsidy package for the region. However, Shah’s remarks underscore India’s unwavering commitment to reclaiming PoK, viewing it as an integral part of the Indian Union.
