Pakistan rejects Indian foreign minister’s baseless allegations

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has outrightly turned down the statements made by Indian Minister for External Affairs levelling baseless and frivolous allegations against Islamabad on the issue of terrorism.

Responding to media queries regarding a series of recent statements made by the Indian minister, the Foreign Office spokesperson said: “Pakistan rejects the baseless and frivolous accusations made by the Indian External Affairs Minister. His latest tirade is reflection of growing frustration over India’s failure to malign and isolate Pakistan.”

The spokesperson said “For last several years, India has engaged in a malicious campaign to mislead the international community through a fictitious narrative of victimhood and vile anti-Pakistan propaganda. This practice must stop.

“India’s continued anti-Pakistan diatribe cannot hide its brazen involvement in fomenting terrorism on Pakistan’s soil; nor can it conceal the reality of state-sponsored terrorism in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

“Instead of pointing fingers at others, India should itself end its involvement in terrorism, subversion and espionage against Pakistan. Only a few weeks ago, a dossier was released containing irrefutable evidence that substantiated India’s involvement in the 2021 terrorist attack in a peaceful Lahore neighbourhood.

“From the death of over 40 Pakistani nationals on Indian soil in the 2007 Samjhota Express tragedy to the arrest of Kulbhushan Jadhav, a serving Commander of Indian Navy, from within Pakistan in 2016, the evidence of Indian involvement in terrorism and sabotage is irrefutable and spans over decades and geographies.”
