India's Kashmir move challenged in top court as curfew eased again

Pakistan bans all cultural exchanges with India, consults China on India's move

"Frankly, the USA could have made or should have made a stronger statement", Khan said in reference to Washington's response on India's illegal and unilateral Kashmir move. "Recent decisions by the Government and Parliament of India are driven by a commitment to extend to Jammu and Kashmir opportunities for development that were earlier denied by a temporary provision in the Constitution".

It was also decided in the meeting that 14th of August to be observed in solidarity with courageous Kashmiris and their just struggle for their right of self-determination, whereas, 15th of August will be observed as Black Day.

Pakistan rejected India's statement calling the deteriorating situation in occupied valley its "internal affair".

Pakistan says it is considering a proposal to approach the International Court of Justice over India's action.

Addressing the media following his meeting with Wang, Qureshi said Pakistan had made a decision to go to the UNSC over India's "shocking move" and that Beijing would fully support Islamabad.

Pakistan's federal minister for railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmad said that Islamabad has suspended a key train service with neighboring India over change in Kashmir's special status by New Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is expected to address the nation had said on Tuesday that a new dawn awaits the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Critics of the BJP have also accused it of changing the constitution to shift Jammu and Kashmir's demographics - it is now majority Muslim - as well as to pander to its Hindu nationalist base, which has long demanded the right to own property in Kashmir. Muslim-majority Kashmir is claimed in full by both India and Pakistan, and rebels have been fighting Indian rule in the portion it administers for decades.

"I have complete faith under this new system we all will be able to free Jammu and Kashmir of terrorism and separatism", Modi said, referring to ending the region's special status granted under Articles 370 and 35A of India's Constitution.

The US has said that there has been no change in its policy on Kashmir and reiterated its call for India and Pakistan to maintain "calm and restraint", amid heightening tensions between the two neighbours after New Delhi revoked special status for Jammu and Kashmir.

"We're not looking at military option", Qureshi said, adding, "Don't we reserve a right to respond in case of any aggression?"

Reminded that Prime Minister Khan had accused India of planning a genocide in Kashmir.
