Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Thursday (March 21) while addressing a press conference, condemned India’s behavior and condemnation of the Christchurch shootings as it did not mention Muslims or mosques. “I was astonished that the world condemned the Christchurch terrorist attacks. It was also condemned by India but did not mention the mosque or Muslims. Muslims are martyred and two mosques attacked but there is no mention of this. Why?” Qureshi asked.
“You [India] want a seat in the OIC because you have millions of Muslims. But why are you left speechless in mentioning Muslims or mosques? This is their double standards. If there is an incident against Muslims it is underplayed.” On last Friday an Australian white supremacist gunman, 28-year-old Australian terrorist Brenton Harrison Tarrant,shot down 50 Muslim worshippers at two mosques in the southern city of Christchurch in a killing spree he broadcast live.
Qureshi while talking about Indian’s courts’ biased verdict in Samjotha Express terrorist attack, said “All four accused were acquitted. Swami Aseemanand admitted to the crime but even he was released,” he said. “In Pulwama incident, Pakistan was blamed without any investigation. No one accepted this narrative of India. After speaking to several international players, they [India] were unsuccessful in linking Pakistan to the attack.”
