ISLAMABAD: On Monday, Pakistan again called on the world to keep India responsible for its role in sponsoring and stopping terrorism against Pakistan in the future.
“India’s use of terrorism as an instrument of foreign policy renders it complicit under international law, the United Nations sanctions regime, and international counterterrorism treaties,” the FO said in a statement, adding that it was the duty of the world to keep India responsible and take measures against Indian citizens engaged in the funding of terrorist groups.
The declaration came a day after the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs dismissed the dossier containing evidence of the sponsorship of terrorism in Pakistan by Indian intelligence agencies as a “futile anti-India propaganda exercise” that was “manufactured” and “lacking legitimacy.”
In the meantime the envoys of the five permanent UN Security Council representatives, China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States, were also briefed on the contents of the dossier.
We also expect the United Nations counter-terrorism authorities to act on the basis of clear proof given by Pakistan and to encourage India, as an instrument of state policy, to renounce terrorism. In the dismantling of the Indian terrorist networks, specifics of which have been given in the dossier, the UN must also play its part,” the FO added.
It recalled that other recent foreign news, including FinCEN Leaks, exposed suspicious transactions carried out by Indian banks and their role in funding terrorism.
FinCEN Leaks, it said, reveals how, brazenly and with impunity, India used its financial infrastructure for money laundering and other illicit activities such as terrorist financing.
In particular, the FO pointed to the relocation of Daesh terrorists from India to the Pak-Afghan frontier. “As illustrated in recent UN reports, the existence of ISIL and AQIS in India suggests that India is emerging as a hotbed of foreign terrorist groups identified by the UN and poses a great danger to the country,” he said.
Although denying India’s rejection of the facts found in the dossier, the FO claimed that it had thoroughly reported India’s successful preparation, promotion, sponsorship, support, funding and execution of terrorist operations against Pakistan.
Usually, India, completely revealed, has resorted to sophistry, obfuscation and re-fabrication. However, bland denials and regurgitation of the old litany of allegations would not modify the facts, it added.
India, it added, had mischievously masqueraded as a ‘terrorist victim’ and tried to confuse the international community by hypocritically levelling charges against Pakistan linked to terrorism.
It has also performed false flag operations to malign Pakistan in IIOJK and within India. The façade has now been removed and India’s true face can be seen by the world, one blackened by IIOJK’s decades-long state terrorism and Pakistan’s state-sponsored terrorism and destabilisation attempts, he said.
Recalling the Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was sentenced to death for espionage by a military court, the FO said he was a “undue face” of India’s state-sponsored terrorism as his role in Pakistan’s subversion, sabotage and terrorism was part of the unquestionable facts against India.
The “saffron terror” organised and unleashed by the RSS-BJP zealots against Muslims in India and against Pakistan is also familiar to the world. Masterminds of Mecca Masjid, Ajmer Dargah, and Samjhota Express terrorist incidents, such as Swami Aseemanand, were given full state security and acquitted after confessing to the National Investigative Agency of India (NIA), the FO said in utter travesty of justice.
It maintained that Indian civilian and military leaders’ open threats to Pakistan, India’s nefarious design to subvert the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), and public comments by noted Indian politicians and senior security officials on ‘teaching Pakistan’ a lesson by using terrorism were more incriminating facts.
