Pakistan’s Pulwama attack admission could warrant action from international organizations

Tilak Devasher, a member of the Indian National Security Advisory Board has said Pakistan Federal cabinet minister Fawad Chaudhry’s admission on Islamabad’s role in Pulwama terror strike should be taken into consideration by UN and other international bodies for initiating tough action against Pakistan.
Speaking in the Pakistan National Assembly on October 28, Science & Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry had said: “Humne Hindustan ko ghus ke maara (We hit India in their home). Our success in Pulwama, is a success of this nation under the leadership of Imran Khan. You and us are all part of that success.”
Despite damage control by the Pakistan Foreign office, the Minister’s remarks were a public admission of the use of terror as an instrument of state policy.
“The admission of Federal cabinet minister Fawad Chaudhry in the National Assembly that Pulwama was an achievement of the Imran Khan government is the smoking gun proof of Pakistan’s direct involvement in terrorism in India. While India has talked about this repeatedly, now a Pakistani minister has confirmed it. Pakistan is thus responsible for the death of 40 brave Indian soldiers. This has to be brought to the notice of all the UN and other international bodies and Pakistan declared a state sponsor of terror,” noted Devasher, author of three books on Pakistan.
As per reports, India is planning to approach the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the matter.
In August this year, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had filed the charge sheet in the 14 February 2019 Pulwama terror attack naming several Pakistani nationals.
Earlier, Pakistan had always maintained that it was not involved in the terror attack on the CRPF convoy, moving from Jammu towards Srinagar on February 14, 2019, at Pulwama, with an IED-laden vehicle that had claimed the lives of 40 CRPF personnel and grievously injured many others.
