MEA Hits Out At Imran Khan, Says 'look Inwards And Address Own Issues'

Written By Daamini Sharma | Mumbai | Published:

The Ministry of External Affairs has hit out at Imran Khan after he condemned the killings of the two terrorists in Kashmir by the Indian security forces on Sunday and suggested India to resolve the Kashmir dispute. The MEA has issued a statement in which it has asked Pakistan leadership to 'look inwards and address its own issues'. In response to a media query regarding a tweet by Pakistan PM, the Official Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said:

“The remarks made by Pakistan’s Prime Minister in his tweet today are deeply regrettable. Instead of making comments on India ‘s internal affairs, Pakistan leadership should look inwards and address its own issues. Pakistan would serve the interest of the people of the region by taking credible action against all kind of support to terrorism and terror infrastructure from all territories under its control rather than supporting and glorifying terrorists and terror activities against India and its other neighbours. Pakistan's deceitful stand on dialogue, while supporting terror and violence, stands exposed to the whole world."

Earlier in the day, Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan took it to Twitter and raked up the Kashmir issue. Referring to the two terrorists as 'innocent Kashmiris’, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party wrote:

 Minutes after his tweet, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala took to twitter and called ‏Pakistan a 'terror machine of the world'. This attack from Congress comes after BJP had claimed that Congress party was sponsoring Facebook ads in Pakistan to remove PM Modi. In-charge of BJP's national Information & Technology cell, Amit Malviya, had tweeted an image as well as a video which shows the official page of Congress allegedly flashing a 'Desh Bachao, Modi hatao' campaign in Pakistan.
