ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Saturday said that Indian National Congress leader Rahul Gandhi‘s detention at Srinagar airport had exposed the fascist face of India, ARY News reported

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, FM Qureshi said that Rahul Gandhi along with 11 leaders of other opposition parties had arrived at Srinagar airport to observe the real situation in occupied Kashmir.

Restrictions had been imposed in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir since the Modi government withdrew its special status earlier this month.

Ghulam Nabi Azad and Anand Sharma were the other senior Congress leaders other than Rahul Gandhi who flew to occupied Kashmir.

Mr Azad had been stopped twice at Srinagar airport, most recently on Tuesday, and was “forcibly” sent back to Delhi both times.
