Social Media Users Dumbfounded As Punjab Police Book AJK PM On Sedition Charges
Social media users have denounced Punjab Police’s decision to register a sedition case against Azad Jammu Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider, saying the decision has made a mockery of Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir.
On Monday, Shahdara police registered an FIR against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, three former army generals, Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider, as well as over a dozen other Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) loyalists for conspiring against the state.
Reacting to the FIR, the AJK prime minister said his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi “must be feeling elated”.
Indian PM NarendraModi must b feeling elated coz almost entire Pakistan has become his “agent”-thanks to the small-minded bigots who’ve least realisation of the repercussions of their parish-pump & hate-filled politics.
As an anti-India Kashmiri, I’m worried about my future now.

When you register treason cases against former prime minister, his party members including retired generals and against the sitting prime minister of Azad Kashmir, it is clear that a mindless, directionless system has gone totally berserk.

Govt today registered case of sedition/mutiny against elected PM of Azad Kashmir & a number of PMLN leaders including 3 retired Lt Generals for listening to address of ex PM Nawaz Sharif by video link from London. Touching new lows, must find mention in Guinness book of record

Although we so untiringly want the world to believe there’s an ‘Azad Kashmir’/independent Kashmir, which has its own parliament and Prime Minister, yet we can file for sedition charges against the PM of ‘Azad’ Kashmir.
Ever saw the kakistocrats like we’re ruled by?

By registering a case of mutiny against the Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir Raja Farooq Haider, the government has betrayed the Kashmir cause which is strongly condemned. Withdraw the case and apologize to the Kashmiri people.@BBhuttoZardari @AseefaBZ @MaryamNSharif pic.twitter.com/sDw2UxS2QC

He’s a patriotic Kashmiri & shouldn’t be punished like this for only belonging to the PMLN
