Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Quresh, in a statement on Monday, said that Pakistan will “forcefully raise the Indian evil conspiracies and state terrorism at the world level,” as per Radio Pakistan.
In his statement, he said that India’s Bharat Janatiya Party (BJP) government is bent upon undermining regional peace and stability for to further its political interests and to divert attention from internal affairs.
The foreign minister said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “conspiracy stands exposed, as he got their forty soldiers killed in Pulwama to win the elections.”
This comes after the latest revelation in an investigation in India, where WhatsApp messages exchanged between Indian journalist Arnab Goswami, chief editor of Republic TV, and Pratho Dasgupta, the incarcerated head of rating company Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC), imply that the journalist knew of the 2019 Balakot airstrike prior to the attack. The chats reveal that this incident greatly boosted the BJP’s electoral ratings and helped then win the Indian election.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Pakistan has presented irrefutable evidence regarding Indian state terrorism. He added that the report by Indian disindormation by the EU Disinfo Lab has “further unmasked the evil face of India.” He urged the world community to seriously take cognisance of the evidence provided against New Delhi.
Referring to the situation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), he said that Kashmir is an “internationally recognised dispute,” and voices are now being raised against India in the British parliament.
The foreign minister reiterated that Pakistan is desirous of peace in the region, but India continues to stoke unrest and is playing the role of a “spoiler in Afghanistan.”
In a tweet posted the same day, he said: “RSS-BJP rogue regime have no credibility going to any lengths to get to and stay in power.”
