Strongly reacting to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks that Pakistan is the “mothership of terrorism”, Premier Nawaz Sharif’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Sunday accused the Indian leader of “misleading” the BRICS countries over the issue. “Mr Modi is misleading his BRICS and BIMSTEC colleagues,” Aziz said. He also alleged that the Indian leadership is “desperately trying to hide its brutalities” in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan Foreign Office (FO) said that Aziz reacted strongly to Modi’s statement during his address at the BRICS summit in Goa in which he called Pakistan a “mothership” of terrorism world-wide.

Aziz said Pakistan joins all the members of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and BIMSTEC in condemning terrorism and reaffirms its full commitment to fight the menace of terrorism without discrimination, “including against the Indian state-sponsored terrorism on Pakistani soil”.

Aziz said the UN Human Rights High Commissioner in Geneva and the Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) have called for sending a fact finding mission to Kashmir. He said The UN and OIC have “rejected Indian attempts to equate Kashmiris’ movement for self-determination with terrorism.”

He said the UN has repeatedly emphasised that people fighting for their self-determination cannot be categorised as terrorists by the occupying state. Accusing India of “terror financing”, Aziz said “India has no moral ground to even talk about counter-terrorism efforts let alone do the finger pointing.”

        Good to show the mirror to the Indians who started terrorism in South Asia in 1971 in then East stan. We all know the Indian backed terrorism in Sri Lanka and let's not forget Indian aggression in Nepal. India is funding terrorists like TTP in Afghanistan to spread terrorism in stan. Captured Indian naval officer Kulbushan Jhadev spilled all the beans on India. It's now laughable to hear Modi talk about terrorism in BRICS. Good thing that there were no takers to the fake crocodile tears.

            Now get ready to lose other parts; by Jihadi terror you cannot keep territory together nor grab territories of others. Terrorstan Pak is now world-wide exposed.
