Post the worst terror attack in Jammu & Kashmir in the decade, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has addressed the Indian allegations on the Pulwama attack in a statement televised nationally.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan today said that India has blamed Pakistan without any proof and if India has any proof about any malpractice and misconduct it should give it to Pakistan for action.
“All this ‘attack Pakistan’ talk is all keeping elections in mind. But if at all these are serious, please make note of one thing clearly – Pakistan will not think of retaliating, it will retaliate,” he said.
Post Pulwama terror attack this is the Imran Khan’s first statement. Khan said that he wanted to respond on the same day of the attack but due to the planned visit of Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud and the investment conference, the statement was delayed.
Pakistan has also sought the United Nation’s urgent intervention to “defuse tensions” with India, the Foreign Office said on Tuesday.
Imran Khan, a former cricketer who came into power last year in the month of August, denied that Pakistani soil was being used for attacks on India. “How can one country’s leadership be the Judge, Jury and Executioner… what sort of justice is this,” he questioned.
He also added that Pakistan is ready to cooperate with India for investigation of the attack and that they are also ready to talk to India about terrorism
He further warned in a video message and said that that any kind of adventurism and rashness on part of India to threaten the sovereignty of Pakistan will be met with assured retaliation. He said that he has come across calls for attack on Pakistan through the Indian media.
“It is in our interest that nobody from our soil spreads violence. I want to tell Indian government that we will take action if evidence is found against anyone from Pakistan,” he said.
Denying to all the allegations by India Pakistan PM said that India needs to introspect its approach towards Kashmir.Khan further added, “I understand this is an election year and it would look good on part of the Indian government if they take any action against Pakistan. The Pakistan PM ended his address to Indian government saying that he hopes, “better sense will prevail”.
