Days after Pakistan passed the Amendment to “Azad Jammu and Kashmir Constitution Act 2018", India on Monday put forward a strong-worded statement protesting against it. Lodging a "strong protest", India asked its neighbour nation to vacate all areas it illegally occupies in Kashmir. "The government of India has conveyed a strong protest through diplomatic channel today against the so-called `Azad Jammu and Kashmir Interim Constitution (13th Amendment) Act 2018`. It was clearly conveyed that the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir, which also includes the so-called `Azad Jammu and Kashmir` is an integral part of India by virtue of its accession in 1947," the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.
