Pakistan’s foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi during his interview with CNN, said that Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief is in Pakistan and is very unwell, to the extent that he cannot leave his house.
While responding to a question regarding arrest of Azhar, Qureshi said “If they (India) give us evidence which is acceptable to the courts of Pakistan – after all we will have to justify, they will go to court – and if they have solid, inalienable evidence, share it with us so that we can convince the people and convince the independent judiciary of Pakistan”.
Pakistan has time and again called for de-escalation with India and for the country to provide “actionable” evidence of JeM’s involvement in the February 14 Pulwama attack. Prime Minister Imran Khan has been calling for said evidence since the attack took place and, in his last address to a joint session of parliament on February 28, he once again urged India to provide evidence so that Pakistan can investigate and take action.
Earlier Indian External Affairs Ministry’s appeal to all members of the UN Security Council to list Azhar as a global terrorist.
