India has highlighted Pakistan’s role in using terrorism as an instrument of state policy and slammed Pakistan for stating that it had no role in the Pulwama attack carried out by Pakistan-based terror group JeM.

Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar emphasised saying, “JeM has claimed responsibility for the attack. The organisation and its leadership are located in Pakistan.” On the other side, Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammad Faisal rejected India’s allegation that Pakistan was behind the attack.

The Pakistani official said that Pakistan rejected India’s allegations because these were made within a short time from the attack and without carrying out any investigations. “These knee-jerk and pre-conceived accusations were nevertheless consistent with well-rehearsed tactics from Indian playbook after such incidents in the past,” Faisal added.

Responding to Indian statements about “JeM claims of responsibility” and purported “video of the attacker”, Faisal questioned the selective and self-serving standards of India.

“On the one hand, India accepted the unverified social media content as the gold standard but was not ready to accept the confessions by its national Kulbhushan Jadhav for perpetrating violence in Pakistan”, said Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesperson.
