New Delhi, Sharply reacting to the statement by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan saying his Government would take action against the perpetrators of the terror attack if India shares actionable proof about any wrongdoing, the Congress on Tuesday said Imran was speaking the language of Jaish-e-Mohammed.
In a post on social media, AICC media incharge Randeep Surjewala said,’’it is unfortunate and shameful that Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is today speaking the language of the Jaish-e-Mohammed.
Do not forget that that Mrs Indira Gandhi and the Indian Army had in 1971 secured independence of Bangladesh by dividing Pakistan into two and that 91,000 soldiers of Pakistan had surrendered before the India army.’’
Earlier, senior Congress leader and Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh questioned Imran as to what had been done about the proofs of the 26/11 attack in Mumbai.
In a post on social media, Capt Amarinder Singh said,’’Dear @ImranKhanPTI you have Jaish chief Masood Azhar sitting in Bahawalpur & masterminding the attacks with ISI help. Go pick him up from there. If you can’t let us know, we’ll do it for you. BTW what has been done about the proofs of Mumbai’s 26/11 attack. Time to walk the talk.’’
In an address to the nation on Radio Pakistan Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said it would take action against the perpetrators of the terror attack if India shares actionable proof about any wrongdoing, but warned against any retaliatory action on his country.
“Pakistan offers full support for any investigation in Pulwama. I guarantee action on this,” Imran said in his address.
“It is in our interest that nobody from our soil spreads violence. I want to tell Indian government that we will take action if evidence is found against anyone from Pakistan,” Imran said.
However, he warned that any adventurism on part of India to threaten sovereignty of Pakistan will be met with assured retaliation. He said that he has come across calls for attack on Pakistan through the Indian media.
“I know it’s a poll season in India. If India will attack us we will surely retaliate. It is easy to start a war but difficult to end. The issue should be solved through dialogue,” he said.
