New Delhi: Upping the ante, Pakistani media has suggested the country’s administration to exploit the ongoing unrest in Jammu and Kashmir to gain advantage of the situation.

In its editorial, the Express Urdu Daily comments on the ongoing unrest in Jammu and Kashmir.

“The ongoing situation in Kashmir suggests that situation there has gone out of hand from Indian authorities and their strategy to subjugate Kashmiri people through draconian laws have proved counterproductive.”

The paper suggests Pakistan to “exploit the situation and also continue its support to the Kashmiri people”.

The Daily also advises Pakistan to “keep a watch on the developments in occupied Kashmir”.

India’s External Affairs Minister SM Krishna has already asked Pakistan to end its illegal occupation of some parts of the state before advising New Delhi.

"Kashmir is an internal matter of India," said Krishna, who is in New York on a 10-day visit to attend the annual UN General Assembly meeting.

Meanwhile, the editorial of Kahabrein Urdu Daily overtly suggests that India is pushing the Kashmir issue towards a war.

“It is unfortunate that India, instead of resolving the issue, is using power and pushing the issue towards a war which would have catastrophic effects for the region,” writes the Daily.
