Pakistan rejects Modi’s remarks insinuating its involvement in Pulwama attack

The spokesperson termed the move as brazen attempt to twist the remarks of the Federal Minister.
Updated 31 Oct 2020

Pakistan on Saturday categorically rejected Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s insinuation of Islamabad’s involvement in the Pulwama attack by alluding to remarks made by a Minister in the National Assembly.

In a statement the foreign office spokesperson termed the move as 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.

Furthermore, the FO stated that it is the BJP leadership’s incurable obsession with Pakistan that impels them to invariably blame Pakistan for their own failings and shortcomings.

The spokesperson said Pakistan firmly believes that the biggest beneficiary of the February 2019 Pulwama attack was the BJP government, as it resulted in BJP’s landslide victory in Lok Sabha elections following their virulent anti-Pakistan electoral campaign.

“The BJP regime is advised, once again, to stop dragging Pakistan into India’s domestic politics, especially at the time of elections in India. Instead of mobilising 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,” he concluded.

Modi, who was speaking on the occasion of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s birth anniversary, in Gujrat, said that the truth of the incident was revealed in Pakistan parliament.

In February 2019, as many as 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel were killed in the attack in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK)’s Pulwama district.
