Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday hit out at Pakistan for instigating violence in Jammu and Kashmir and asserted that all matters related to the region are India's internal issues with no room for Pakistan's interference.

The former Congress president in a series of tweets said that he disagrees with the government on many issues but made it clear that aspects related to Jammu and Kashmir are India's internal matter.

"I disagree with this government on many issues. But, let me make this absolutely clear: Kashmir is India's internal issue and there is no room for Pakistan or any other foreign country to interfere in it," Rahul said in a tweet. 

"There is violence in Jammu & Kashmir. There is violence because it is instigated and supported by Pakistan which is known to be the prime supporter of terrorism across the world," Rahul Gandhi wrote in another tweet.

The Centre had revoked Article 370 of the Constitution earlier last month and had reorganised the region into two Union Territories - Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. 

In the past month, Pakistan has made desperate attempts to internationalise the issue but ended up being isolated at every forum with nations acknowledging Jammu and Kashmir to be New Delhi's internal matter.
