I wonder if this move is really sort of a nationalistic gesture to distract from the economy, which has been slowing down? Of course, Pakistan is lucky to be offered the same opportunity as well, and it's in an even greater mess.

Same with China's clumsy posturing in Hong Kong (which could have been much more easily diffused via legislature).

The costs to the country’s image overseas are higher than government boosters want to believe.
I am no fan of India's hard right Hindu nationalist government. But this was almost inevitable by India. What India is doing now (effectively absorbing Kashmir into the Indian Republic) is exactly what Pakistan did decades ago, with its portions of Kashmir. And that's exactly why other major powers aren't backing Pakistan. Their "concern" comes across as hypocritical. The Indians aren't paying any price at all for this move in Kashmir. Modi even get honours from the Gulf States.

At this point, it's seen as the default state of India-Pakistan relations. And mostly these days, nobody really takes Pakistan's threats seriously anyway. Finding Bin Laden blocks from the Pakistan Military Academy, kind of destroyed their credibility in the global community.

Also, this "warning" is bizarre. He's effectively threatening nuclear war over Indian Occupied Kashmir, a region that Pakistan has never controlled. That's not how they are going to get the sympathy of other major powers.

Pakistan's only true ally is the People's Republic of China.
