Pakistan turns down baseless Indian allegations regarding drone attack in IIOJK

Pakistan has categorically rejected baseless Indian propaganda and allegations accusing Pakistan for the drone attack on Indian Air Force (IAF) base in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

In a statement, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), Pakistan has categorically rejected the irresponsible and misleading statement by Indian Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy regarding an alleged drone attack in IIOJK.

The MoFA press-release stressed that Indian government while intentionally choosing to not share any evidence, has once again hurled serious allegations against Pakistan as parts of its propaganda and smear campaign that is characteristic of the Indian government and an obliging Indian media.

This is a familiar Indian ploy to externalize any blame, use baseless allegations against Pakistan as a smokescreen, and seek to undermine the indigenous struggle for self-determination of the Kashmiri people, said MoFA.

Furthermore, these allegations confirm what Pakistan has consistently pointed out that the BJP government stages ‘false flag’ operations to malign Pakistan with terrorism-related allegations for narrow political gains.

The use of Pakistan card either to win an election or to divert attention from an electoral defeat has also unfortunately become a standard practice, added the MoFA press-release.

Pakistan has urged India to refrain from its reprehensible propaganda campaign as no amount of Indian falsehoods can succeed in diverting attention from India’s serious crimes in IIOJK.
