ISLAMABAD: Responding to media queries, the foreign office (FO) spokesperson, Tuesday, said, “We reject the officially inspired reports appearing in the Indian media seeking to link Pakistan with the terrorist attack on a Gurdwara in Kabul on March 25, 2020, this attempt is highly mischievous and condemnable.”

According to an official statement, Pakistan has already strongly condemned the dastardly terrorist attack on the Gurdwara, in which so many precious lives were lost.

Places of worship are sacrosanct and their sanctity must be respected at all times. The perpetrators of this heinous crime must be brought to justice.

As a country (in reference to Pakistan) that has suffered the most from and has fought resolutely against the scourge of terrorism, including State-sponsored terrorism emanating from “across the border,” Pakistan firmly believes that such despicable terrorist acts have no political, religious or moral justification.

As for the motivated reports in the Indian media, these are patently designed to malign Pakistan.

India’s overall smear campaign against Pakistan is well-known.

Seeking to implicate Pakistan in this terrorist attack is part of the desperate attempts India is making to divert attention from its own unacceptable actions and State-terrorism in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

We are confident that such Indian ploys will not succeed in misleading the world community.
