Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar has cautioned the nation to remain alert against all covert and overt attacks by the enemy, saying India was behind many terrorist attacks in Pakistan.
“The nation has to keep its eyes and ears open at all times, not just against an aggression through the border but also on all fronts inside the country,” Nisar said while talking to media in Chakri near Rawalpindi on Monday.
“We need to unite to stop all forms of terrorism by the neighbouring country,” Nisar said, adding “security forces and political leadership were already on same page”.
On Saturday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi threatened Pakistan with global ‘isolation’ following the recent Uri attack. At least 18 Indian troops were killed in an attack on a military airbase in Sri Nagar near the Line of Control (LoC). India accuses Pakistan of perpetrating the attack, a charge the latter has denied categorically.
The interior minister also criticised Modi for using a tone and language, is his public speech, which was not “befitting for a prime minister”.
“From the Indian premier’s tone, it was quite clear as to who is fueling terrorism and who is making efforts to establish peace in the region,” Nisar remarked.
The interior minister went on to add that the United Nations (UN) must take notice of Modi’s talk and the world needs to be told about the unruly behaviour being demonstrated by India.
Pakistan and India have been involved in a tense verbal and diplomatic spat since the Uri attack. Tension was already rising between the two arch rivals since the July 8 killing of Hizbul Mujahideen (HuM) commander Burhan Wani. At least 100 demonstrators have been killed since then due to indiscriminate use of force against Kashmiris by Indian forces.
