Pakistan on Friday claimed that India was “nervous” due to its diplomatic offensive highlighting “human rights violations” in Kashmir. Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria also accused India of violating the ceasefire on LoC to “divert attention” from Kashmir. He said India was “nervous” because of the diplomatic offensive launched by Pakistan to “expose” New Delhi over the situation in Kashmir.

“Ceasefire violations on the Line of Control and interference in the internal affairs of neighbours are indicative of Indian nervousness,” Radio Pakistan quoted Zakaria as saying in his weekly briefing. He said Pakistan has very effectively taken up the situation in Kashmir at all levels.

Pakistan will continue to highlight Indian “atrocities an human rights violations” in Kashmir at the world fora, Zakaria said. The Foreign Office Spokesman regretted that India was “obstructing” the dispatch of “fact-finding mission” by UN Human Rights Council to Kashmir.

He said India’s “claim” of surgical strikes is one of the many “lies” that New Delhi has been telling to the world community. Zakaria alleged that India’s objective was to “divert attention” of the world from “gross human rights violations” in Kashmir. He claimed that Indian media reported many things against facts and said credit goes to the Pakistani media for “exposing it”.

      The claimed strikes have become a joke against the indian govt. Multiple episodes of embarrment now as it keep running away from events, debates and simple questions. Meanwhile, after taking international media personnel to the border many days back, stan happily killed the Indian claim once for all. The rift and in-fight that followed after Modi and indian army failed to provide their own nation (let alone the world) any proof which they claimed they had, and which everyone in India seems to be asking for has been a TREAT to watch for everyone in stan.
