‘India already exposed’: Pakistan refutes New Delhi’s claim relating to infiltration of militants

Pakistan on Sunday refuted allegations by India that Islamabad wanted to infiltrate militants along the Line of Control (LoC).

Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri, the spokesperson of Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that “the world is aware of India running a smear campaign against Pakistan, as it had been exposed by the EU DisinfoLab’s report”.

“We categorically reject the baseless allegations that Pakistan wanted to infiltrate so-called ‘terrorists’ via the Line of Control (LoC),” he added.

He said that JK is already one of the most militarized zones in the world and the allegation that India is putting on Pakistan is not possible. Over 900,000 Indian armed forces personnel are posted in JK, he said.

Chaudhri added that India has installed layered barbed wire fences, security systems, and electronic surveillance devices, making it impossible for anything to cross the LoC to enter JK.

The spokesperson also accused New Delhi of “stoking the flames of terrorism in Pakistan”.

“On its part, India has been involved in state-terrorism in (JK) and against Pakistan. From the Samjhota Express killings of February 2007 to the terrorist blast in Lahore in June 2021, terror incidents targeting Pakistanis have had an Indian hand,” Foreign Office stated.

In 2020, Pakistan provided irrefutable evidence of India’s involvement in terrorism and patronage, the spokesman said. In February this year, Pakistan urged India to abide by the 2003 ceasefire agreement.

The spokesperson added that India must not use baseless “infiltration attempts as a handy ploy to find excuses to scuttle the ceasefire understanding.”

The consequences of India’s irresponsible behaviour will not be good for peace and security in the region, the Foreign Office spokesperson concluded.
