On Saturday, Pakistan categorically rejected Narendra Modi’s, Indian Prime Minister, a statement of Pakistan’s involvement in the Pulwama attack by implying remarks made by a minister in the National Assembly.
Zahid Hafeez, Foreign Office Spokesperson said in a statement that India has miserably failed to provide any proofs against Pakistan’s alleged involvement in the Pulwama attack.
“This is a brazen attempt to twist the remarks of the federal minister, who was referring to the befitting response given by the Pakistan Armed Forces in broad day-light to India’s ill-conceived misadventure of 26 February 2019, in violation of the UN Charter and international law”
“It is the BJP leadership’s incurable obsession with Pakistan that impels them to invariably blame Pakistan for their own failings and shortcomings. Most notably, it has been a part and parcel of the BJP’s electoral strategy to raise Pakistan ‘bogey’ in the attempt to galvanize voters’ support, while seeking to divert public attention from their domestic and foreign policy failures,” the statement added.
The FO spokesperson advised Modi and the BJP regime to stop involving Pakistan in India’s politics, especially at the elections’ times.
The FO spokesperson concluded by saying,
“Instead of mobilizing the electorate through stoking of anti-Pakistan sentiments, the BJP leadership would be well-advised to win voter support by demonstrating actual performance in meeting the expectations of the Indian people.”
