Days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned Pakistan and made a strong statement against Pakistan sponsored terrorism, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif has attacked PM Modi.
Khawaja Asif’s attack comes after the Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs questioned the surgical strikes.
Taking To Twitter, Khawaja Asif insulted Modi, showcasing that a spooked Pakistan has gone into a denial mode now. Hurling vile remarks on PM Modi, he wrote, “An illiterate who perhaps doesn't even know meaning of a surgical strike.. Parroting the lie his generals fed him & making a fool of himself in front of world audience …”
Even after PM Modi's strong statement on a world stage that India informed Pakistan about the surgical strikes before it informed Indian media, Khawaja Asif refuted his claims and said "Modi's repeated claims of imaginary surgical strikes r an attempt to shore up dwindelling public support or he is being taken for a ride by his Army commanders who are culpable of worst atrocities and war crimes in Kashmir and else where in India...(sic)"
Earlier, China, on Friday, backed its all-weather partner and urged the international community to extend support to its counter-terrorism efforts.
"Terrorism is the enemy faced by all. The international community should work together to fight against it," foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said during a media briefing here, when asked about China's response to Modi terming Pakistan as a "terror export factory" during a speech in London.
While interacting with Indian diaspora in London at the ‘Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath’ event, PM Modi had said that India’s character is such that it cannot ever take something from someone illegitimately, however, if someone (indicating at Pakistan) is setting up a terror factory while attacking innocent citizens. PM Modi also said that India will not tolerate those who export terror and will respond to them in the language they understand, referring to the 2016 surgical strikes.
