Member of India’s federal ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and former journalist Shazia Ilmi slammed the video saying that she was disgusted seeing kids being used for vile political propaganda in the name of God.

The promotional video was shared to promote Azadi-E-Kashmir Convention that is organised to invite Pakistanis to participate in a march against New Delhi's decision to revoke the special status of Kashmir.
In the video, children can be seen talking about their plans after Pakistan conquers India. A young Pakistani teenager says," We will deploy the Indian Army to clean our lanes." Another can be heard saying, "we will eat beef at Delhi Gate, only Urdu will be used in India." While another child allegedly threatened to take revenge from Rashtriya Sawayamsevak Sangh (RSS) once "Hind becomes Pakistan".
The video, doing rounds on social media, was also condemned by Indian politician Priyanka Chaturvedi saying: "These Pakistani kids deserve an education, not mental degradation and hallucinations."

Netizens took to Twitter to condemn the video as an act of “brainwashing kids” and radicalizing society through “delusive” information.

For people who say Pakistani are “just like us” and want peace. The entire society is radicalized with delusions of conquering India in a religious war. https://t.co/9SNBzeZhrk— Sankrant Sanu सानु संक्रान्त ਸੰਕ੍ਰਾਨ੍ਰਤ ਸਾਨੁ (@sankrant) October 13, 2019
Looks like @ImranKhanPTI has broken all previous records of the champions of Islamic Jihad—Zia-ul Haq & al-Bhagdadi. With his war mongering & hate speech at the @UN, he has already brainwashed little kids & is training world’s largest suicide squad. Deservedly the Caliph now. 😕 pic.twitter.com/4ZMMAVj5o2— Aarti Tikoo Singh (@AartiTikoo) October 13, 2019

While others drew parallels with Imran Khan’s peace talks at the UN and condemned the propagation of political propaganda promoting the taking control of India.
@ImranKhanPTI talks of Peace & all but see how Pakistani Army uses Children for its Propogends of Conquering India with Force. You lost half your nation today people call it Bangladesh just a reminder @EmmanuelMacron @realDonaldTrump @POTUS @POTUS44 @BorisJohnson @JustinTrudeau https://t.co/J0aKY5hYR9— Ramnath (@RamnathRAK) October 13, 2019

The two South Asian nations have been involved in banter since India blamed Pakistan for sponsoring terror attacks in Kashmir, when forty Indian soldiers were killed in a suicide attack on a convoy in Pulwama, and after New Delhi’s decision to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, which Pakistan claims violates bilateral treaties between the two countries.
