Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an address at Dhaka University on Sunday blamed Pakistan for spreading terrorism and fear in neighbouring India. He further reminded the students of how India had intervened in Bangladesh’s 1971 liberation war.
Modi blamed that Every now and then Pakistan keeps disturbing India, creates nuisance, promotes terrorism and such incidents keep recurring.
Foreign Office Spokesperson Qazi M. Khalilullah by taking the note of Indian Prime Minister’s statement said that it confirms Pakistan’s stance on India’s negative role against a sovereign neighbouring state.
In the referred speech, Modi had acknowledged the Indian government’s interference in the events of 1971 in the then Eastern Province of Pakistan. The spokesperson added that it was regrettable that Indian politicians not only indulge in actions that are in violation of the United Nations’ Charter but also take pride in recalling their interference in the internal affairs of other states.
Although foreign office has condemned the statement of Indian Prime Minister but it could have been more suitable if the condemning remarks were given by the Prime Minister of Pakistan or senior cabinet ministers. It is a dilemma that we have seen quite often, some of our politicians keep blaming Indian intelligence agency RAW in the terrorist activities in Pakistan. In the recent statements issued by the Chief of Army staff that strict actions would be taken against Indian involvement of terrorism in Pakistan particularly in Balochistan. If the situation is serious up to such extent than what bars Prime Minister to raise his voice to condemn RAW’s sponsoring terror inside our country. Indian Prime Minister keeps blaming Pakistan for terrorism but this time he said the same while addressing in Bangladesh. Pakistan believes in peaceful co-existence and maintaining good neighbourly relations with India, but baseless accusation of Indian Prime Minister must not be taken lightly and must be responded in the same tone.
