Pakistan's tendency to remain in denial over everything terror-related and spin ever-changing narratives in this regard has reached a nadir, with Imran Khan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi hitting out at India over the Indian Cricket Team donning camouflaged caps to pay tribute to the Pulwama terror attack martyrs in their match against Australia on Friday.
As per Pakistan's official radio channel, Qureshi expressed his regret that Indian players decided to wear such caps, and termed this gesture by India as 'belligerent'.
As a tribute to the 40 CRPF jawans who lost their lives in the February 14 terror attack, the Men in Blue decided to honor the bravehearts with this small gesture.
Further, Indian skipper Virat Kohli had announced that each and every player of team would contribute to the National Defence Fund, and urged citizens of the country to do the same so that the education of the younger ones of the martyrs are taken care of.
40 CRPF jawans had attained martyrdom after a convoy heading from Jammu to Srinagar was struck with an IED blast. Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility for the attack.
Pakistan failed to condemn the terror attack, and despite evidences proving Jaish's presence in the country, Imran Khan's government shielded the terror outfit.
Earlier in the day, MEA slammed Pakistan government for its double-talk when it comes terrorism, and pulled up the neighboring country for failing to walk the talk when it comes to action against terrorists.
"It is regrettable that Pakistan still continues to deny Jaish-e-Mohammed’s own claim of taking ownership of the Pulwama attack. In his interview to BBC on 1 March, Pakistan Foreign Minister said, and I quote “they have not claimed responsibility of that (Pulwama attack). There is some confusion on that. The confusion is that the leadership has been contacted and they said no” unquote. Is Pakistan defending the Jaish-e-Mohammed and acting as its spokesperson? Does Pakistan’s claim have any credibility?" MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said
