Stop spreading “baseless” propaganda against Pakistan: Islamabad.
On Wednesday in Islamabad, the Foreign Office’s spokesperson responded to the media questions on a recent statement by S. Jaishankar, the Indian Minister for external affairs.
Earlier this week, the Indian Minister, with his Australian counterpart Alexander Schallenberg in Vienna, attacked Pakistan during a press conference.
The Indian Minister pointed out that Pakistan was the “Epicenter of terrorism” and that terror was coming from there, so the centre of terrorism close to India, said in an interview with the Australia TV show.
He further stated, “Pakistan is a country which attacked the parliament of India some years ago, which attacked the city of Mumbai, which went after hotels, and foreign tourists, which every day send terrorists across the border.”
Pakistan’s spokesperson for foreign affairs responded to India’s foreign Minister by telling the media that India has been carrying out a vicious effort over the past several years to deceive the world by fabricating stories of victimhood and spreading poisonous anti-Pakistan sentiment.
She added that the statement by Jaishankar levelled a “baseless and frivolous” accusation against Pakistan.
“This practice must stop. India’s continued anti-Pakistan diatribe could not hide its brazen involvement in fomenting terrorism on Pakistan’s soil, nor can it conceal the reality of state-sponsored terrorism in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).”, the released statement said.
Instead of blaming others, the spokesperson suggested that India stop supporting terrorism, subversion, and espionage against Pakistan.
There is indisputable evidence of Indian involvement in terrorism and sabotage that spans decades and geographical locations, the spokesperson added.
