New Delhi: The screens of Times Square in New York, perhaps the world’s most prized real estate for advertisements, lit up with slogans against the Kashmir lockdown Thursday.
The messages — from “Restore Human Rights” to “Stand with Kashmir” and “Free Kashmir” — were the brainchild of the Pakistani community based in the US, according to reports in Pakistani media.
The government of Pakistan tweeted the picture from its official Twitter handle.
Tensions between India and Pakistan have deepened ever since New Delhi scrapped Article 370, which gave Jammu & Kashmir a degree of autonomy. Pakistan has downgraded diplomatic ties with India, and lashed out at India for its “assault on Kashmir”.
