New Delhi: The Congress on Friday said the India-Pakistan joint statement in the Russian city of Ufa was not a “breakthrough” between India and Pakistan.

“So-called joint statement with Pakistan is not ‘breakthrough’ but ‘break our bones’,” said senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid here at a press conference here.

Khurshid also slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he has failed the country with respect to Jammu and Kashmir and foreign policy.

“The BJP does not have any policy vis-a-vis Jammu and Kashmir. It is highly unfortunate that prime minister is in Jammu and Pakistan and ISIS flags are raised in Srinagar,” Khurshid said.

“We also tried peace initiatives with Pakistan, but our experience tells us not to trust Pakistan,” he added.

A British court has convicted a mother of forcing her daughter to marry a relative almost twice her age in Pakistan, in a first successful prosecution of its type in England.

A jury at Birmingham Crown Court on Tuesday convicted the mother of four of duping her then 17-year-old daughter into travelling to Pakistan on the pretext of a family holiday in 2016 and forcing her to marry there, the BBC reported.

The mother was found guilty of two counts of forced marriage and was scheduled to be sentenced.

The court heard the girl had been entered into a “marriage contract” with the man years before in Pakistan and became pregnant at 13. The victim had an abortion on returning to the UK, with her doctor reporting his concerns to social services.
