India condemns provocative statements against it by Imran

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's comments, a provocative statements which include a call for jihad and inciting violence in India

New Delhi: India on Thursday strongly condemned “highly irresponsible” statements by Pakistani leadership on withdrawal of special status to Jammu and Kashmir. External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said Pakistan has been using terrorism as State policy against India and it must stop exporting terror.

“We strongly condemn highly irresponsible statements by Pakistani leadership on matters internal to India,” he said, in what is seen as a direct reference to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s comments. “The provocative statements from Pakistan include a call for jihad and inciting violence in India,” Kumar said.

Khan has been consistently attacking India on its decisions on Jammu and Kashmir in the last three weeks. On Monday, Khan said he will raise the issue at every international forum, including at the UN General Assembly. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, in a special address to the nation, said that  Islamabad’s Kashmir policy was at a decisive point as he slammed India for playing what he called its last card and vowing to take next step.“I have nominated myself as the Ambassador of Kashmir and will fight the case for freedom of Kashmir till the very end,” Khan said.

The comments came as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was meeting US President Donald Trump in Biarritz on the sidelines of the G7 meet to which India was invited as a special guest. Trump who had rattled India with an offer to mediate between two countries on Kashmir on Monday said Modi really feels he has it (situation in Kashmir) under control.

“I have a very good relationship with both the gentlemen (Modi and Khan) and I’m here. I think they can do it (resolve the issue) themselves,” Trump added. Following the remark, Modi said “There are many bilateral issues between India and Pakistan, and we don’t want to trouble any third country. We can discuss and resolve these issues bilaterally.”
