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.

    All note that Nisar has conveniently neglected to EVER provide credible evidence of Indian involvement in those “many terrorist attacks” in Pakistan!
    This is just more “foreign hand” blathering for local consumption to deflect responsibility!Recommend

    I really don’t understand the funky mindset of Pakistani politicians… what are they trying to project to the world…
    this newspaper didn’t report that Modi
    said “If u want to wage a war, wage against poverty, unemployment, and other problems in the country and let’s see who wins”…
    so what kind of rhetoric is this… peaceful or anger…I thank god that my forefathers didn’t take decision to move to Pakistan who has such breed of mindless politicians at Interior Minister level postRecommend

    Such illusions take the better of Indian nation’s phyche when you elect a hindutva-driven chauvinist chai-wala who quite recently was persona-non-grata to the greater part of the world. What else you ‘fools’ should expect from this Fool-in-Chief to think rationally for he is no more a CM Ghujrat where he could “flow blood with water”. We dare you to undo ‘Indus Water treaty’ and you think we would do nothing?Recommend
