Pakistan denying airspace for Modi to travel has triggered Indians
The Indian government put forward a request to use Pakistan’s airspace for the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi’s flight to Germany.
Pakistan just denied India’s request to open its airspace for Modi
Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the foreign minister of Pakistan, said that the decision has been made “keeping in view the situation in occupied Kashmir”.

“A request was received from India saying that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeks to use Pakistani airspace for an overflight on the 20th to Germany and wishes to use the same for a return flight on the 28th,” he said.
Indian carriers generally fly across Pakistan on all their West-bound flights.
Pakistan has communicated this to the Indian High Commission.Pakistan’s airspace has been sealed off for India ever since the Balakot strike in February. It even refused permission to the plane carrying Indian President, Ram Nath Kovind, to fly over its airspace during an official trip.
Special permission was sought this time since India revoked Article 370 of its Constitution, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
Indians were infuriated by Pakistan closing its airspace for Modi
As Pakistan denies permission to PM Modi’s plane to use its airspace, @MEAIndia says “we regret the decision.Pak should reflect upon its decision to deviate from well estd international practice;reconsider its old habit of misrepresenting reasons for taking unilateral action."

Apparently the permission for President’s plane was denied earlier this month? Why are we asking again?
In both cases, permission is denied. What kid of diplomacy is this?https://t.co/hMGLuBDX42

Pakistanis on the other hand, are actually pretty happy with the decision
Given that Modi has led his government to invade Kashmir, close off communication for more than a month and deny basic human rights to the people of that region, along with continuing to antagonize Pakistan with constant assault of the LoC and antagonistic stance at the world level, it is only fair that Pakistan denies airspace for a leader who continues to violate human rights. Pakistanis are happy for our government taking this decision and not accepting India’s request.
India: Denies Kashmiris their right to self determination. Locks them up & takes away all means of communication.
Indian journalists: Modi ji ney kiya hoga tou acha hi kiya hoga.
Pakistan: Denies Modi airspace.
Indian journalists: Ridiculous & churlish. An act of war.

Pakistan rejects India’s request for use of PK airspace for Modi’s flight to UNGA. Take the longer way Modi!

India has requested but Pakistan must not allow Modi’s aircraft to fly over Pakistan. That’s the least Pakistan Govtcan do and must do. No compromise here.

So shameless they would still ask Pakistan for overflight rights while in the middle of threatening to invade it while blackening its name internationally for years.https://t.co/gK9XacBWbA
