Pakistan rejects Indian denial of being involved in Lahore’s Johar Town blast

Pakistan has categorically rejected Indian denial of being involved in Lahore’s Johar Town blast.

In a statement, rejcting India’s denial of orchestrating a terrorist attack in Pakistan, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has reiterated that is irrefutable evidence of India’s aiding, abetting and financing of this terrorist incident.

“We reject Indian denial of involvement in the 23 June 2021 terrorist attack in Lahore. There is no doubt that the intelligence agency from across the border was involved in planning and executing terrorist attacks against Pakistan,” read the MoFA press-release.

The Foreign Office also accentuated that Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was caught red-handed in March 2016, is the most familiar and undeniable face of India’s state-sponsorship of terrorism against Pakistan.

Urging India to dismantle its terror infrastructure against Pakistan, arrest the perpetrators of the Lahore attack, and bring them to justice without any delay; Pakistan has called upon world community to hold India to account and take practical steps to proceed against the Indian nationals involved in patronage of terrorism.

“Use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy by India makes it culpable under international law, UN sanctions regime, and international counter-terrorism conventions,” added the press-release.

Pakistan’s credentials in the fight against terrorism do not need endorsement by India. Pakistan has been a victim of terrorism perpetrated by Al-Qaeda, its affiliates and state-sponsored terrorism.

Pakistan’s sacrifices and its achievements in fighting terrorism have been recognized by the world.
