Pakistan ‘Furious’ Over Inclusion Of Pak-Controlled-Kashmir Regions In Indian Weather Bulletin

The Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson – Aisha Farooqi in a tweet stated –  Pakistan rejects Indian move for “inclusion” of Azad Jammu and Kashmir & Gilgit-Baltistan in Indian TV weather bulletin. This is another mischievous Indian action in support of a spurious claim and further evidence of India’s irresponsible behaviour.



Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) included regions of Gilgit-Baltistan and Muzaffarabad, territories currently under Pakistan controlled Kashmir in its daily weather bulletin.

The IMD has now added this supplement in the Jammu and Kashmir meteorological subdivisions. The news of attaching regions of Pakistan controlled Kashmir into the Indian weather forecast came after Pakistan Supreme court’s decision to permit the Islamic Republic to conduct elections in Gilgit-Baltistan.

The IMD’s latest move is seen to be a stern warning to Pakistan. The IMD, however, said that it has already started mentioning the region in its national weather bulletin since J&K and Ladakh were made two separate Union territories. “This region was not explicitly mentioned in the regional forecast for Northwest India, which is started now,” it said.
