Pakistan condemns Indian efforts to link it with Kabul Gurdwara attack
April 7, 2020 06:01 PM
Pakistan has categorically rejected the officially-inspired Indian media reports seeking to link Pakistan with the terrorist attack on a Gurdwara in Kabul on last month.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui termed this attempt of maligning Pakistan over Kabul Gurduwara attack as highly mischievous and condemnable.
She said Pakistan has already strongly condemned the dastardly terrorist attack on the Gurdwara, carried out on March 25 in which so many precious lives were lost.
Aisha said places of worship are sacrosanct and their sanctity must be respected at all times. She added that the perpetrators of this heinous crime must be brought to justice.
As a country that has suffered the most from and has fought resolutely against the scourge of terrorism, including state-sponsored terrorism emanating from across the border, Pakistan firmly believes that such despicable terrorist acts have no political, religious or moral justification, the spokesperson said.
She said these reports are patently designed to malign Pakistan as India's overall smear campaign against Pakistan is well-known.
Aisha said seeking to implicate Pakistan in this terrorist attack is part of the desperate attempts India is making to divert attention from its own unacceptable actions and state-terrorism in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
She said Pakistan is confident that such Indian ploys will not succeed in misleading the world community.
