Prime Minister Imran Khan in an interview with British publication made it clear that country has no links with proscribed organization to Jaish-e-Mohammad adding that there is “no place for terrorists in his Naya Pakistan”.
“We’re already cracking down on them, we’re already dismantling the whole set up,” he said in an interview with Times. “What is happening right now has never happened before in Pakistan.” Terming Indian prime minister Narendra Modi as the aggressor for resorting to an air strike he said “I’m still apprehensive before the elections, I feel that something could happen,” the premier said.
“When Pulwama [attack] happened I felt that Modi’s government used that to build this war hysteria. The Indian public should realise that this is all for winning the elections. It’s nothing to do with the real issues of the subcontinent.”
“There’s Jaish-e-Mohammad in India, the boy who blew himself up, the 19-year-old boy, was a Kashmiri-Indian boy,” he said. “His parents said he was radicalised by some abuse by the security force. So it was an Indian boy, Indian operation, Indian car, Indian explosive. Why was Pakistan blamed?” “We cannot take the stance any more where you have these armed groups in our country,” he said. “We can’t afford being blamed for any terrorist activity, like Pulwama.”
