Just 48 hours after NIA submitted its 13,000 page chargesheet on the dastardly Pulwama attack, India stepped up the attack on Pakistan for providing shelter Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar who has been named as the attack mastermind.
During the weekly briefing of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said, “The chargesheet on Pulwama was filed after an investigation of an year and a half since the attack took place on February 14, 2019. It has been filed to bring perpetrators of such a heinous crime to justice. Jaish-e-Mohammed had claimed responsibility for the attack. The organisation and its leadership is in Pakistan. It is regrettable that Masood Azhar continues to find shelter in Pakistan.”
Srivastava also maintained that India has “shared enough evidence with Pakistan but it continues to evade responsibility”. In the same vein he said that Pakistan is yet to take any action against the perpetrators of Mumbai attack as well which resulted in loss of 165 lives including 25 foreign nationals.
Responding to queries on Pakistan’s denial about underworld don and dreaded terrorist Dawood Ibrahim’s presence on its soil, Srivastava said, “Pakistan’s assertion that the SRO does not mean it admits to the presence of listed individuals on its territory or that it would not impose any additional measures on these individuals lays bare its insincerity with respect to legitimate expectations of the world that they will track down international terrorists based on their soil.”
Dawood Ibrahim was among 88 others who figured in a list published as a Statutory Regulatory Order (SRO) by Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to escape blacklisting by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
“Pakistan has chosen not to act against these international terrorists. Pakistan has not taken any credible and verifiable action against terror entities. Pakistan must ensure listed individuals are prosecuted,” Srivastava said.
Slamming Pakistan for its pack of lies with regards to the UNSC meeting where Pakistan had on August 24 claimed that it had made a statement at the UNSC discussion on threats to international peace and security, Srivastava said, “The briefings and discussions were confined to members only. And we had sought clarification from the Indonesia chair as there was no scope for any non-member to speak there. All allegations made by Pakistan have been rebutted.”
