Is Pakistan contemplating full airspace ban for Indian flight to add more pressure on the Indian government after New Delhi revoked Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir? The vociferous Pakistan Minister for Science and Technology – Fawad Chaudhry tweeted that the federal cabinet was considering a complete ban on the use of Pakistani airspace for Indian flights.
Chaudhary stated that a blanket ban on the use of Pakistani land routes for India’s trade with Afghanistan was also suggested during today’s cabinet meeting. He said the legal formalities for these decisions to take effect were under consideration.
“Modi has started we’ll finish!” the minister wrote, in a reference to the Indian prime minister’s move to revoke occupied Kashmir’s special autonomy earlier this month.

Imran Khan, meanwhile, has pledged to take up the responsibility of raising the voice of the Kashmiri people at every global forum and has been on a calling spree to update world leaders on Kashmir issue.
