Imran Khan says Pulwama was an ‘indigenous thing’ by a Kashmiri ‘boy’ who was radicalised by the ‘brutality of security forces’

Indian Opposition leaders have earlier echoed what Pakistan is claiming that the Pulwama attacks were an 'inside job'.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on his maiden visit to the US as head of state washed his hands off the Pulwama attack. Speaking in Washington, Khan said that Pakistan had nothing to do with the Pulwama terror attack that took place in February this year.

Khan said, “This whole thing, Pulwama, what happened in February last year, it was clearly an indigenous thing. It was a Kashmiri boy radicalised by the brutality of the security forces. He blew himself up. But because this group (Jaish-e-Mohammad) claimed responsibility which was in India as well, Jaish-e-Mohammad was operating in India, Pakistan suddenly came into the limelight.”

This is not the first time Pakistan has played victim and obfuscated from taking responsibility of the terrorism thriving on its soil. In a video released days after the Pulwama attack, Imran Khan had not even once condemned the dastardly attack on CRPF soldiers. In his statement, Khan claimed that his country had nothing to gain from attacking India.

Ahead of Khan’s visit to the US, terror organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed was taken into a judicial custody, again. He is the mastermind behind the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai and is accused of terror funding. Many speculated that the arrests were made to save Khan’s face before he visits the US.

Amusingly, Imran Khan’s bid to blame Pulwama attack on India is also a line the Indian ‘liberals’ and Indian opposition parties have toed. Following the Pulwama attack, many Congress supporters had floated conspiracy theories that Pulwama was an ‘inside job’ carried out on behest of Prime Minister Modi. One Congress leader and conman who questioned Pulwama as an ‘inside job’ was given a Lok Sabha ticket by the party. A Goa Congress leader had even asked for proof of the terror attack and accused PM Modi for ‘planning’ the Pulwama attack. A Karnataka Congress MP even said that the Pulwama attack was a ‘match-fixing’ between PM Modi and Pakistan.

Following the Pulwama attack, India carried out Balakot airstrikes where Indian Air Force pilots went across the LOC and destroyed the terror camps on the other side. Here, too, Pakistan denied destruction of any terror camps. Congress and opposition leaders again came to Pakistan’s rescue asking for proof of Balakot airtrikes.
