Pakistan rejects Indian allegations regarding encounter in IIOJK
Pakistan has categorically rejected the irresponsible and misleading statement by the Indian officials which leveled false allegations against Pakistan in connection with an encounter in the Kulgam area of the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), reported 24News HD TV channel on Saturday.
In a statement, the foreign ministry’s spokesman said that it was ironic that the Indian government had once again resorted to leveling serious allegations against Pakistan without any corroboration. This is yet another manifestation of the baseless propaganda and smear campaign against Pakistan that is characteristic of the Indian government and an amenable Indian media, the spokesman further said.
This is a typical Indian strategy to shift blames, employ unfounded assertions against Pakistan as a smokescreen, and seek to undermine the indigenous struggle for self-determination of the people of IIOJK.
He said the latest allegations further confirmed what Pakistan had consistently pointed out that the BJP government staged “false flag” operations to malign Pakistan with terrorism-related allegations for narrow political gains.
Pakistan calls upon India to refrain from its reprehensible propaganda campaign as no number of Indian falsehoods can succeed in diverting attention from India’s serious crimes in IIOJK.
