In a direct attack against Pakistan, India has said that the “whole world knew about “Pakistan’s role in supporting terrorism” and that it should not even attempt to play the victim.
At a weekly media briefing, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said that Pakistan provides shelter to the maximum number of UN proscribed terrorists.
“The whole world knows the truth about Pakistan and its role in supporting terrorism. No amount of denial can hide this truth. The country which provides shelter to the maximum number of UN proscribed terrorists should not even attempt to play victim,” he said.
Srivastava also said that recent decisions concerning land laws in Jammu and Kashmir was an internal matter of India and no country has locus standi to comment on them.
“The government has taken a number of measures in recent times for the socio-economic development and for improvement of livelihood in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which is an integral part of India. Therefore, these decisions relate to the internal affairs of India and no country has locus standi to comment on this,” he said.
Meanwhile, proving Pakistan’s involvement in anti-India activities, Pakistan Federal Minister Fawad Chaudhry boasted in National Assembly that “Pulwama was achievement under leadership of Imran Khan”.
“We hit India by entering inside. Our achievement in Pulwama is the achievement of the entire community under the leadership of Imran Khan. You all also have credit (for it),” Chaudhry told the Pakistan National Assembly.
Earlier this month, Pakistan also suffered a major setback as Financial Action Task Force (FATF) declared that the country will continue to remain on its Grey List. The anti-terror financing watchdog had also asked it to continue to work on implementing action plan to address its strategic deficiencies including demonstrating that its law enforcement agencies are identifying and investigating the widest range of terrorist financing activity and demonstrating that prosecutions result in effective, proportionate and dissuasive sanctions.
