Promises of “guaranteed action” ring hollow given the track record of Pakistan: MEA on PM Imran Khan’s statement

MEA said that Pakistan’s claim of being the greatest victim of terrorism is not true, as the entire world knows that Pakistan is the nerve centre of terrorism.

The ministry of external affairs has issued a strong reaction to the statement issued by Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan in light of the Pulwama attack. Today the Pakistan PM had issued a video message, which appeared to be heavily edited. In the video, Imran Khan did not condemn the attack on CRPF convoy on February 14, but threatened India with dire consequences if it decides to attack Pakistan.

Reacting to the statement, the ministry of external affairs has said “We are not surprised that the Prime Minister of Pakistan refuses to acknowledge the attack on our security forces in Pulwama as an act of terrorism. Prime Minister of Pakistan has neither chosen to condemn this heinous act nor condoled with the bereaved families.”. The MEA noted that Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammed and the suicide bomber claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Pakistan PM ignored the same. “It’s a well-known fact that JeM & its leader Masood Azhar are based in Pakistan. These should be sufficient proof for Pakistan to take action”, MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

Responding to Imran Khan’s offer to investigate the matter if India provides proof, MEA said that it is a lame excuse. The MEA added that even after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, proof of involvement of Pakistan based terrorists was given to them, but despite this the case not progressed for more than 10 years. Similarly, no progress has been made in the Pathankot attack case. Promises of “guaranteed action” ring hollow given the track record of Pakistan. In this “Naya Pakistan”, Ministers publicly share platforms with terrorists like Hafiz Saeed who have been proscribed by the UN, the statement issued by MEA read.

MEA also said that Pakistan’s claim of being the greatest victim of terrorism is not true, as the entire world knows that Pakistan is the nerve centre of terrorism.

It is regrettable that the Pakistani prime minister has insinuated that India’s response to the terrorist attack is determined by forthcoming general elections. India rejects this false allegation. India’ democracy is model for the world, which Pakistan could never understand. We demand Pakistan to stop misleading the international community, and to take credible and visible action against the perpetuators of the Pulwama terrorist attack and other terrorists and terror groups operating from under their control, the statement by MEA added.
