The premier’s senior aide affirmed Pakistan will take all possible measures to unveil India’s role in the breakup of East Pakistan in 1971.

“We will take all possible steps to expose India's role in the breakup of East Pakistan in 1971 and its threat to destabilise Pakistan through terrorism,” Sartaj Aziz told the Senate on Wednesday.

Aziz further said, “The government has taken strong notice of Modi's statement in which he acknowledged his country's role in the events of 1971 in the then-East Pakistan.”

The premier’s adviser on foreign affairs further urged the international community and the United Nations to take notice of India’s open admission of indulging in subversive activities to destabilise Pakistan.

The adviser’s statement comes days after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Dhaka not only accused Pakistan of spreading terrorism in India but also admitted that India had played a part in the break-up of Pakistan in 1971.

Earlier on Tuesday, amidst a fresh salvo of hostile rhetoric from New Delhi, Nawaz said that the recent provocative statements of Indian leaders are ‘disappointing’.

He called upon the United Nations Security Council to ensure implementation of its resolutions to resolve the festering dispute over the Himalayan region of Kashmir.

Modi’s statement is being seen as a part of the ongoing war of words between the two nuclear-armed neighbours. In the recent weeks, both the countries have accused each other of sponsoring terrorism.

While Pakistan is pointing fingers at RAW (Research & Analysis Wing) for spreading terrorism in the country, India is restating its allegations that Islamabad is doing little to prosecute the November 2008 Mumbai attackers.

Jim | 6 years ago | Reply @Hamza Khan Indeed you are imagining it. If the situation was so serious in Kashmir, things would have been worse than Syria or Iraq. Instead, there is flourishing tourism, people voted majorly in elections, and except for a small group in the valley sponsored by Pakistan (like Geelani and the terrorists) no one wants to do anything with Pakistan, even if they are unhappy with India (half of India is in any case unhappy with India; that's why we have democracy -- to express it). As for Sartaj Aziz's laughable statement, you don't have to expose anything. India acknowledged it a long time ago, Bangladesh was freed and recognized by the world, and is today a better country than Pakistan by many accounts even if it does not have a nuclear "bum." It has brains, which cannot be said of Pakistan, notwithstanding many bright individual liberal Pakistanis. Eventually, the world will be happy if Balochistan and Sind are also liberated from this very unstable Punjabi state. Liberal Punjabis themselves would be happy to get rid of the fundoos, who can all congregate in one narrow strip between Muridke, Jhamb, Bahawalpur etc which can then be bombed to the Stone Age.
