Pakistan has condemned recent provocative statements made by Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh during election rallies in Haryana.
In a statement, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Muhammad Faisal said these provocative statements from a senior Minister in the Indian government provide another insight into the BJP mindset, a mix of extremist ideology, hegemonic ambitions, and obsession with Pakistan.
The Spokesperson said Rajnath Singh should have no doubt that the security forces and people of Pakistan remain ready to resolutely defend the country against any evil design.
He said we also reject the Indian Defence Minister’s gratuitous comments on help in counter-terrorism.
He said India would help itself by ceasing forthwith the state-terrorism it has been perpetrating for decades against the Kashmiri people in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The spokesperson said India must also cease its sponsorship of terrorism against Pakistan.
