Pakistan has categorically rejected Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s terrorism-related allegations against Pakistan as completely baseless, reported 24News HD TV channel Monday.
In a statement, Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar Ahamd said Pakistan had shared incontrovertible evidence with international community about India‘s state sponsorship of terrorism and subversion against Pakistan.
He said India uses terrorism as an instrument of state policy. This year alone, India has been involved in terrorist attacks in Johar Town, Lahore and against Chinese and Pakistani workers at Dasu.
“India uses terrorism as an instrument of state policy. This year alone, India has been involved in terrorist attacks in Johar Town, Lahore and against Chinese and Pakistani workers at Dasu. The ruling BJP-RSS combine has a clear anti-Muslim and anti-minority agenda. They target Pakistan with false propaganda campaigns for both ideological reasons and political expediency.”
He said India’s so-called “surgical strikes” and ill-conceived misadventure in Balakot in February 2019 were exposed as based on nothing but lies and deceit.
Pakistan restored the strategic balance in the region by retaliating against India in a measured and firm manner, he added.
“The February 2021 reaffirming of 2003 ceasefire understanding only demonstrated that Pakistan is a responsible State that wants to maintain peace in the region despite irresponsible Indian behavior. Our desire for peace notwithstanding, Pakistan will resolutely defend itself against any aggressive Indian designs.”
