Indian media cries foul: Pakistan expresses concern over Pulwama Attack


News Desk |

Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has expressed deep concern on the attack in Pulwama district of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, local press reported on Friday, 15th February. In a statement, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Faisal has said, “we have always condemned heightened acts of violence in the Valley”.

In a Tweet condemning the attack, Dr. Faisal said “Attack in Pulwama in IoK is a matter of grave concern. We have always condemned heightened acts of violence in Valley. We strongly reject any insinuation by elements in Indian government and media circles that seek to link the attack to the State of Pakistan without investigations”.

The spokesperson also strongly rejected the allegations by elements in the Indian government and media circles that seek to link the attack to Pakistan without investigations.

Indian police said that a car filled with explosives rammed a bus carrying the officers to Srinagar, the capital of Indian-occupied Kashmir. Pakistan and India each claim the divided territory of Kashmir in its entirety.

Indian Ministry of External Affairs responded with the insinuation of Pakistan’s State-level involvement in the attack. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in an official statement accused Pakistan of the attack and added that the JeM [Jaish-e-Muhammad] founder Maulana Masood Azhar had been “given the freedom to target India.”

At least 44 Indian paramilitary police personnel were killed and many others injured when their convoy was targeted with a car bomb at Awantipora in Indian controlled Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Thursday, in what is being called the worst ever attack on Indian security personnel in the occupied state.

Indian police said that a car filled with explosives rammed a bus carrying the officers to Srinagar, the capital of Indian-occupied Kashmir. Pakistan and India each claim the divided territory of Kashmir in its entirety. Most Kashmiris support the rebel cause that the territory be united either under Pakistani rule or as an independent country while also participating in civilian street protests against Indian control.
