Islamabad Rejects Baseless Remarks by Indian Foreign Minister

Pakistan has rejected the unfounded remarks made by the Indian Foreign Minister, accusing Pakistan of sponsoring terrorism. Pakistan rejected India’s outburst and reminded New Delhi of the presence of Kulbhushan Yadav, the face of India’s terrorism exports to disrupt the country.

Pakistan, on Sunday, firmly rejected the “unfounded remarks” made by the Indian External Affairs Minister (EAM) Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, during an interview with a French newspaper and other media platforms.

A press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs firmly rejected these statements, and remarked, “This outburst is yet another reflection of India’s characteristic hubris and the BJP government’s well-known smear campaign against Pakistan.”

India: Exporter of Terrorism to Pakistan

Dr. Mohammad Faisal, official spokesperson of the Foreign Office observed that in its bid to divert international attention from the heinous humanitarian crisis in Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir, New Delhi is fabricating lies with regards to the issue of terrorism.

Dr. Faisal said, “It is deplorable that to further the RSS-BJP extremist ideological and nationalistic agenda, and to divert global attention from the gory reality in IoJ&K, senior Indian officials continue to manufacture “facts” both with regard to the issue of terrorism and the situation in IoJ&K.”

The FO spokesperson said, “If anything, Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav is the face of India’s “export” of terrorism to Pakistan.”

He added that India is frustrated after failing in its ambitions to quell the voices of freedom emanating from Kashmir despite its barbaric and draconian laws curbing freedoms and basic human rights. He said, “Similarly, India’s frustration is evident from the fact that despite its relentless State-terrorism in IOJ&K for decades, it has failed to muzzle the peaceful voices of the Kashmiri people and the demand for self-determination, promised to them in the United Nations Security Council resolutions.”

“India also continues to be the safe haven for those preaching hate and carrying out hate crimes, including against its own minorities, with impunity and indeed under state patronage.”

Responding to the Indian External Minister’s “farcical claim” that the situation in Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir is “back to normal”, the FO spokesperson remarked, “The question is why this ‘normalcy’ is not visible to the outside world? For India, there is no escape from the reality that its State-sponsored repression cannot break the will and indomitable spirit of the Kashmiri people.”

India’s Obsession with Pakistan

The MoFA spokesperson advised India to let go of its obsession with Pakistan, and pledged that Pakistan will continue to highlight the sufferings of the Kashmiri people.

Dr. Faisal continued, “India would be well-advised to move away from its obsession with Pakistan and also from its continued denial of reality. Pakistan, for its part, would continue to highlight the plight of the people of IoJ&K and reiterate its call for the peaceful resolution of the international dispute of Jammu & Kashmir.”

The FO spokesperson concluded, “As a country that has suffered the most from cross-border terrorism, Pakistan would continue to contribute constructively to regional and global efforts to promote peace and prosperity in the region and beyond.”

Speaking to a German weekly news magazine, Spiegel Online, Indian External Affairs Minister (EAM) Subrahmanyam Jaishankar repeated New Delhi’s charade of accusing Pakistan for sponsoring terrorism. S. Jaishankar said, “I think the world sees Pakistan for what it is. The country openly runs a terrorist industry.”

Throughout the interview, Jaishankar maintained that India is fighting a war against terrorism in the occupied Himalayan territory of Kashmir, and blamed Pakistan for having “vested interests” in prolonging the war. The Indian External Affairs Minister blatantly denied any reference to the decades long freedom struggle of the Kashmiri people, and the UNSC resolutions allowing the Kashmiris their fundamental right to self-determination.
