Pakistan’s PM in his brief video message while addressing to the nation earlier on Tuesday, had warned India that any action taken will be met with retaliation by Pakistan.
Following the statement given by the Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan on Pulwama Attack, the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti asserted that the Pakistan Prime Minister “deserves a chance” since he has recently taken command over the country.
Adding to the statement she said that Pakistan was not being blamed for the Pulwama terror attack without any evidence or proof.
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief noted that it was time for the Pakistan’s PM to “walk the talk” with regard to taking action against the outburst of terrorist activities.
“Pathankot dossier was given to them (Pakistan) but no action was taken to punish the perpetrators. Of course the war rhetoric has more to do with the impending elections than anything else.Time to walk the talk,” Mehbooba Mufti said in a tweet, while responding to Imran Khan’s tweet on the Pulwama terror attack, posted by his government on Twitter.
India hits over Pakistan’s PM statement, saying he should “stop misleading the world” and take “credible and visible action” against terror masterminds operating from its soil.
“It is regrettable that the Pakistani Prime Minister has insinuated that India’s response to the terrorist attack is determined by the forthcoming General Election. India rejects this false allegation. India’s democracy is a model for the world which Pakistan would never understand,” said a foreign ministry statement.
The Indian government also dismissed the statement as a lame excuse and said that there is role of Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed on Pulwama Attack. It said proof was provided to Pakistan following the terror attacks in Mumbai in 2008. “Despite this, the case has not progressed for the last more than 10 years,” the government said.
India said Khan has refrained from condemning the Pulwama attack in his statement, nor did he offer his condolences to the grieved families of the 40 Central Reserve Police Force who martyred at the sinful Pulwama Attack.
