ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Monday urged the United Nations to take notice of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statements against Pakistan.
“The International community and the UN should take serious notice of aggressive statements by Modi“, said the interior minister.
Nisar said India has been using secret sources to destabilise Pakistan and create unrest.
“India has been sponsoring and backing terrorism in Pakistan for the last many years,” said the interior minister.
The federal interior minister cautioned the people and said Pakistan needs to be alert of attacks by the enemies of Pakistan, as the “enemy will not always use conventional military might to harm the country”.
Nisar urged the nation to be united and stand up to any threats Pakistan might face.
He added that it is very important to show national unity with our actions, and asked the whole nation to play their role in countering terrorism.
“We need to show unity, this is not the time for politics and political statements,” said Nisar.
“We need to make it clear that if anyone looks at us with an evil eye the whole nation will stand united against any aggression.”
In reference to the Kashmir issue, Nisar said Pakistan will seek help from China, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Last week Modi, in a public speech, said that India will mount a global campaign to isolate Pakistan in the world. He had also accused Pakistan for sponsoring and backing terrorism.
Indian rhetoric against Pakistan has reached fever pitch after the attack on an Indian army base in India-held Kashmir.
Attack and allegations
Heavily-armed suspected militants killed 17 Indian soldiers in a pre-dawn raid earlier on an army base in India-held Kashmir (IHK), the worst such attack for years in the disputed Himalayan region.
The ‘militants’ first attacked a frontline base close to the Line of Control (LoC) before moving onto the brigade headquarters at Uri.
Four suspected militants were also killed during the gunbattle with Indian security forces.
Pakistan rejected Indian allegations regarding involvement in terrorist attack on brigade headquarters in Uri area of IHK.
“Pointing fingers at Pakistan has become a traditional tendency of India after each terrorist attack,” said Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria.
Pakistan’s Director General Military Operations (DGMO) also refuted Indian allegation of involvement in Uri base attack saying the claim is “unfounded and premature”.
He asked his Indian counterpart to provide actionable intelligence, if any.
