But Pakistan is like that rat who wants to eat when not even hungry.

After such an astounding loss to india in a battle , after the signing of a formal treaty with UN, passing and adaptation of a resolution pakistan doesn’t feel ashamed to beg UN to intervene into kashmir who has clearly told pakistan that kashmir is an internal matter of india.

Pakistan has degraded its image whenever it had tried to intervene in the past it will be same  this time around.

As a indian we call for peace in the valley,
We are one
Jai Hind
