Former chief minister Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti continued to push a pro-Pakistan narrative following the dastardly Pulwama terror attack.

Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammed has claimed responsibility for the attack.

After 40 CRPF jawans were martyred in the Pulwama terror attack on Feburary 14, and five more personnel's from CRPF and Army martryed on Sunday, Mufti has chosen to look away from Pakistan's responsibility in the attack, and repeated a line that is often given out by the country's leaders. 

In a tweet, she has said that the Centre should "overhaul its approach" on Jammu and Kashmir and "drop the obsession with Pakistan".

"Deepest condolences to the families. This bloodshed will only stop when GoI overhauls its approach(rather lack of it) towards J&K. Lets drop the obsession with Pakistan and get our own house in order. The current attitude will only worsen the situation & polarise the nation," she said.

The attack has received the strongest condemnation from countries across the world. 

Countries such as the United States and Russia has backed a retaliation against Pakistan by India.

Heavily criticizing Pakistan, Iran has even warned the country over for terror attack in its own soil.

Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Commander, Mohammad Ali Jafari has called Islamabad for a crackdown or notified them of "retaliation".

"The government of Pakistan must pay the price of harbouring these terrorist groups and this price will undoubtedly be very high," Jafari told Iranian media. 

He added, "If Pakistan fails to punish them in the near future, Iran will do so based on international law and will retaliate against the terrorist.
