India’s top diplomat in New York has created a controversy after a video emerged that showed him suggesting that India follow Israel model in Jammu and Kashmir. Sandeep Chakravorty, the consul general in New York, was filmed making the remarks at a private event on Saturday that was also attended by filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, actor Anupam Kher and some Kashmiri pandits.
The New York Consul General said, "We already have a model in the world. I don't know why we don't follow it. It has happened in the Middle East- if the Israeli people can do, we can also do it. I think we should just follow from there and push our leadership. We have to push our leadership to do that else what is the point?"
