Pakistan on Sunday rejected Indian allegations regarding involvement in attack on brigade headquarters in Uri.
"Pointing fingers at Pakistan has become a traditional tendency of India after each militant attack," Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria told Dawn News. "In the past many Indians were involved in the terrorist acts for which India had blamed Pakistan."
Commenting on India's Home Minister Rajnath Singh's statement declaring Pakistan a "terrorist state", Zakaria said: "India is trying to divert world's attention from the human rights violations being committed in occupied Kashmir". "The whole world is looking at the Indian atrocities in India-held Kashmir and UN Human Rights Commissioner has also offered to send fact finding mission to Kashmir which India has rejected."
Zakaria said India cannot "hide the crimes being committed in occupied Kashmir." Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is going to strongly highlight the Kashmir issue in the UN General Assembly, he added.
In the backdrop of Uri base attack earlier in the day, Pakistan's Director General Military Operations (DGMO) established hotline contact with his Indian counterpart in the afternoon, Inter-Services Public Relations stated.
Pakistan army spokesman Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa said that following the attack Director General of Military Operation (DGMO) of the two countries discussed the situation along the Line of Control through hotline.
"Refuting the unfounded and pre-mature Indian allegation, Pakistani DGMO asked his counterpart to share any actionable intelligence," Radio Pakistan reported citing an ISPR release.
Bajwa reiterated that no infiltration was allowed from the Pakistani soil because of "water-tight arrangements" in place on both sides of LoC and the Working Boundary. (Agencies)
