Pakistan asks Indian leadership to stop dragging it in their domestic politics for electoral gains

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said that the BJP leaders in India will be well-advised to desist from any ill-conceived misadventure and also stop dragging Pakistan in India’s domestic politics for electoral gains.


In response to media queries on the remarks made by the Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh at an event in New Delhi on December 12, 2021, questioning established historical facts, levelling unfounded allegations, the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Asim Iftikhar Ahmad strongly condemned the former’s unwarranted, gratuitous and provocative comments and said that it is the BJP’s special forte to misrepresent history, resort to revisionism and delusional thinking, and indulge in false bravado.

“Such discourse is particularly evident whenever elections in key States in India are approaching,” he said.

The Spokesperson said that the timing of the Indian defence minister’s provocative rhetoric is, therefore, not surprising as the BJP-RSS combine is desperate to win elections in Uttar Pradesh and other States, typically inciting hyper nationalism and seeking to advance the extremist ‘Hindutva’ agenda.

Asim Iftikhar said that the Indian defence minister’s chest-thumping and war-mongering is nothing but further evidence of India’s irresponsible behavior and its relentless belligerence towards Pakistan.

As regards the issue of terrorism, the international community is well aware of how the Hindutva-inspired regime in India is carrying out State-terrorism against the Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), he said.

In November last year, Pakistan also presented a comprehensive dossier with irrefutable evidence of the Indian government’s planning, aiding, abetting, financing and executing terrorist activities in Pakistan, he added.

The Foreign Office Spokesperson said that the world is aware that Pakistan is fully capable of thwarting India’s aggressive designs.

“We have demonstrated our resolve and capability in this regard including in the recent past,” he said.
