Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique said on Saturday that India was the biggest exporter of terrorism in the region.

Expressing his views on the social media website Twitter on Saturday, the railways minister demanded that the UN and all civilised nations should take notice of India's "barbaric actions".

Rafique also pointed out Indian forces’ recent ceasefire violations along the working boundary that left at least six civilians dead and dozens others wounded. He added that the unbridled Indian troops were involved in all kinds of state and non-state sponsored terrorism.

The minister also tweeted a picture of Lieutenant Arsalan, 22, the officer commanding the newly-established border post in Rajgal, Khyber Agency martyred in cross-border firing earlier in the day, with a couplet praising his sacrifice and bravery.

Earlier, the Foreign Office said that the deliberate targeting of civilians was deplorable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws. “Despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations,” it added.

“In 2017 to date, Indian forces have carried out more than 870 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary, resulting in the Shahadats of 38 innocent civilians and injuries to 142, as compared to 382 ceasefire violations in 2016,” according to the Foreign Ministry figures.
