With the word “Gangsta” written, pictures of Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah are also floating on all social networking websites.

Memes showing brokers and buyers talking about purchasing property in Kashmir are also making the rounds.

However, not everybody is happy that a subject as serious as this must become a subject of joke.

“Whether you support the government’s move in Kashmir or not, you must know of the real conflicts and danger that could come in the wake of this. Can we for godsake stop with the jokes and memes? The insentivity is gross and disgusting! #Kashmir,” a user wrote on Twitter.

“All politics aside, sharing memes & jokes on the abrogation of Article 370 while Kashmiris struggle to communicate with their loved ones, living in a constant state of fear and misinformation must check their privilege.The situation in Kashmir is not a joke,” another tweet read.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday questioned the international community’s “silence” on the Kashmir situation and warned that “if ethnic cleansing of Muslims takes place in the region, there would be severe repercussions”.

Pakistan observed India’s Independence Day on Thursday as “Black Day” amid heightened tensions between the two neighbours following New Delhi’s move to scrap Article 370 granting special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

“In Indian-Occupied Kashmir, 12 days of curfew, presence of extra troops in an already heavily militarised occupied territory… complete communication blackout — with the example of (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi’s earlier ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Gujarat,” the cricketer-turned-politician wrote on Twitter.

“Will (the) world silently witness another Srebrenica-type massacre and ethnic cleansing of Muslims in IoK,” he asked. “I want to warn the international community that if it allows this to happen, it will have severe repercussions and reactions in the Muslim world, setting off radicalisation and cycles of violence.”

Addressing a special session of the AJK Legislative Assembly in Muzaffarabad, Khan had said that any “miscalculation” on the part of New Delhi would elicit a “tit-for-tat” response from Islamabad.

“The Pakistan Army is battle-hardened and it is fully ready to respond to any violation by India. The entire nation is ready and stands alongside its armed forces,” Khan had said. (IANS)
