Apart from this, Khan has announced that it will call its high commissioner back from India and expel the Indian envoy to Pakistan.

 

New Delhi| The Indian parliament on Tuesday passed the bill to abrogate Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcate the state into two separate Union Territories. Since then, neighbouring Pakistan seems to be rattled. The issue also echoed in Pakistan’s parliament where lawmakers asked their Prime minister Imran Khan to take action against India’s move.

Pakistan has already made it clear that it will raise the issue in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Today the country has announced seven steps against India. It has downgraded diplomatic relations with India. However, this decision may not have any effect on India.
