India, on Thursday, claimed that it has “information” that Pakistan is attempting to infiltrate terrorists into the Indian Territory with the intentions to carry out attacks in the wake of the escalating tensions over Modi administration’s unlawful decision to abolish the Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, which provided autonomy to Indian-occupied Kashmir.
Briefing the reports on Thursday, Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar informed reporters that Indian security forces are well prepared to deal with any such attack.
False Allegations on Pakistan
Raveesh Kumar commented on Indian media reports citing unidentified Indian intelligence sources as stating that “commandos and terrorists trained by Pakistan” have allegedly infiltrated Indian waters to launch an attack on Indian port facilities, located in the Western state of Gujarat.
He stated, “It is true that Pakistan is trying to infiltrate terrorists to create an alarmist situation. Our demand is the same as the international community, as it is international obligation to undertake an operation to eliminate cross-border terrorism.”

Raveesh Kumar continued, “We are all aware that Pakistan has been using terrorism and cross-border terrorism as a state policy. We have continued to highlight our concerns in this regard with them. Pakistan has an obligation to take action against terrorists and terror groups operating from its soil.”
Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor, rubbished Indian allegations of terrorist infiltration. He stated that Pakistan is a responsible state and it “would be insane to allow infiltration” across the Line of Control.
False flag operation is an intentional misrepresentation to blame the enemy for political or military attack. India always resorted to blame Pakistan for alleged terrorism inside IOKashmir and mainland India.
Commenting on these false allegations emerging from India media on his unofficial Twitter account, Major General Asif Ghafoor said, “Indian media, trolls and few pseudo …are giving foolish and fake news about Pakistan and its Armed Forces.”
DG ISPR added, “They do this to respond to professional and credible Pakistani media and ISPR. Actually, they are certifying their incompetence and implausibility.”

Commenting on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s hardliner stance on solidarity with Kashmir, spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, “We strongly condemn the highly irresponsible statements made by the Pakistani leadership on matters internal to India. These statements include references to Jihad and to incite violence in India. This is intended to project an alarmist situation, which is far from the ground realities.”
Responding to a question on the letter written by Shireen Mazari, Federal Minister for Human Rights, the UN Special Procedures mandate-holders on human rights violations in IOK, spokesperson Raveesh Kumar refused to “lend any credence to the letter by reacting to it.”
He commented, “Let me put it very simply that the letter is not even worth the paper on which it is written upon.”

Responding to the international organizations condemning India’s human rights violations in occupied Kashmir, Raveesh Kumar said, “We completely reject such unsubstantiated statements. These are not based on facts.”
Possibility of False Flag Attack
Speaking to Global Village Space on the Indian agendas of staging a false flag attack, Jan Achakzai, Chairman of the Center for Geopolitics and Balochistan, observed that India has always resorted to blaming Pakistan for alleged terrorism.
Jan Achakzai said, “False flag operation is an intentional misrepresentation to blame the enemy for political or military attack. India always resorted to blame Pakistan for alleged terrorism inside IOKashmir and mainland India.”
The Baloch analyst continued, “But actually it was Delhi to stage such attacks to frame Pakistan. Now the possibility is higher when PM Modi is going to address the UN General Assembly session increasingly under pressure from the human rights watch bodies for brutalities in IOK. “
New Delhi has repeatedly accused Pakistan of training and abetting insurgency groups that have been fighting against Indian establishment since 1989 as the Kashmiri freedom fighters.
Achakzai added, “To divert attention from Kashmir, India will likely stage a false flag operation according to the assessment of intelligence agencies. The reposts if militants arrested by Indian security forces and reported in Indian media are part of psych-ops to gauge the reaction of public opinion and make a case for full blown false flag attack.”
The Baloch analyst issued a stern warning to Pakistan, “We must be ready to counter Indian conspiracy for diverting attention from IOK.”
India claims of Pakistani-trained commandos infiltrating Indian Territory come in the wake of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s repetitive warnings to alert the international community of the likelihood of yet another “false flag attack” being staged by the Modi administration in a bid to create a deceptive diversion from the heinous human rights violations being committed in Indian-occupied Kashmir.
New Delhi has repeatedly accused Pakistan of training and abetting insurgency groups that have been fighting against Indian establishment since 1989 as the Kashmiri freedom fighters. Islamabad has denied these allegations, stating that it only provides moral and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri struggle for freedom.

In turn, Pakistan has a plethora of substantiate allegations against Indian involvement in terror aiding and abetting across Pakistan’s Balochistan province and Karachi, which were cemented with the arrest of Indian RAW spy, Kulbhushan Singh Jadhav, who voluntarily confessed to organizing and orchestrating terror activities across Pakistan.
