Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Friday (Feb 15) while speaking at the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, responded to Indian allegations of Pakistan’s involvement in Kashmir attack and made it clear that India should acted more responsibly.
“I condemn the incident that took place. I believe violence has never been, nor is our way; that is not the policy of our government.” “Pakistan has been very clear, our viewpoint is clear, and, specifically, the stance of this government has been plain and simple: we desire peace,” he said, “We desire good relations with our neighbours, we neither wish to opt for the path of violence nor has this ever been part of our intentions, Qureshi continued.
“I was sad and sorrowful about the loss of life, that people had been affected by it, that they were troopers of the Central Reserve Police [Force (CRPF)], and that many died and were wounded. India “should have acted more responsibly”, referring to accusations pertaining to the attack in Pulwama, Kashmir, and asked if New Delhi “desired peace and stability in the region or political point-scoring with attention on the upcoming elections?”
“Now, I’m a bit sad that India did not even complete a probe into the incident, there was no investigation, yet there was a knee-jerk — an immediate — reaction, wherein they levelled accusations against Pakistan” . “Therefore, it doesn’t make sense to shift focus from the western border to the eastern border,” he stressed, urging the Indian government and its ministers to take a breather and look inwards.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday (Feb 15) has threatened Pakistan for terror attack on Pulwama and said “those behind the terrorist attack in Pulwama will have to pay a “heavy price” adding that “India will give a strong reply for Kashmir attack”. “The terrorists…they have made a big mistake. You will have to pay a very heavy price…I assure everyone that the forces behind the attack…we will bring them to justice,” PM Modi said in an address in Delhi after chairing a top level security meeting with senior ministers.
