Nov 22, 2021: Pakistan’s Foreign Office (FO) has called out the Indian Defense Minister for making “extremely irresponsible, provocative and unwarranted remarks” and said that Pakistan was fully capable of defending itself against any aggression.
According to Indian media, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh had said on Saturday that India would not refrain from entering Pakistan’s territory and launching air strikes.
Responding to India’s war frenzy, the Foreign Office said in a statement on Sunday that the minister’s remarks were “deceptive” and reflected New Delhi’s hostility towards its neighbors. India’s dirty campaign against Pakistan has been completely exposed and discredited. The statement added that there was no recipient in the international community.
“It is no secret that Indian leaders engage in falsehoods and fantasies while pointing fingers at neighbours including Pakistan.”
In doing so, the FO added, India seeks to divert the attention of the international community from the widespread violations of human rights and international humanitarian law by the Indian occupying forces in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). The statement further said Pakistan is fully capable of defending itself against any aggression. The whole world is witnessing Pakistan’s ability and determination to thwart the Indian adventure in February 2019.
The statement further said that Indian occupying forces in IIOJK are committing serious human rights violations and serious crimes against innocent Kashmiris including extrajudicial killings, custodial deaths, torture, arbitrary detention, including innocent children. These include being used as a human shield and collective punishment.
The dossier presented by Pakistan to the international community in September 2021 contained indisputable evidence of serious and systematic human rights violations and crimes against humanity by the Indian occupying forces at IIOJK.
The frustration of the Indian government is evident in the fact that despite the relentless incidents of state terrorism in IIOJK, it has completely failed to silence the peaceful voices demanding Kashmiris’ right to self-determination, which has been denied UN security.
The FO said. “While fully prepared to respond to India’s provocations and irresponsible behavior, Pakistan will continue to act responsibly and play its part in all efforts to promote peace, security and stability in the region and beyond.”
