Pakistan has categorically rejected Indian External Affairs Minister’s highly irresponsible and gratuitous remarks, insinuating at Pakistan’s so called involvement in international terrorism.
In a statement today, Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar said the unfounded remarks are yet another manifestation of the Indian leaders’ obsession to concoct facts with respect to terrorism for misleading the international community. He said India points fingers at neighbors in a bid to mask its own well known credentials as a state sponsor of terrorism and a serial violator of human rights.
The spokesperson said nowhere is state terrorism more evident than in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir where nine hundred thousand Indian occupation forces continue to terrorize, torture and torment innocent Kashmiris with impunity. He said the world is also aware of Saffron Terror orchestrated and unleashed by the BJP-RSS zealots against Muslims in India.
Asim Iftikhar said Pakistan’s contribution to world peace is widely acknowledged by the international community. He said Pakistan is the only country that has stemmed the tide of terror directed against it from elements and states with inimical motives. In reality, India has been involved in supporting terrorism against Pakistan from its own territory and from other countries in the region.
The spokesperson said India’s mischievous campaign to masquerade as a victim of terrorism and seeking to hoodwink the world community by hypocritically levelling allegations against Pakistan is pathological. The spy Kulbhushan Yadhav, a serving Indian navy officer and RAW operative who was involved in planning, supporting, abetting and executing terrorist activities in Pakistan, remains a stark reminder of India’s true face of a state sponsor of terrorism.
The Spokesperson called upon the international community to hold India accountable for its patronage of terrorist entities and for instigating unrest in neighbouring countries.
