Union Minister and former Indian Army chief General (retd) VK Singh has stated that the admission by Pakistan Federal Minister Fawad Chaudhry of his government's role in Pulwama terror attack vindicates India’s stand on carrying out the Balakot airstrike, reports Times Now.
He stated that after this admission, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) should blacklist Pakistan and that nobody should give aid to the country which aides terrorist activities.
He reportedly told news agency ANI, “I would like to thank him for admitting the truth concerning Pulwama terror attack. We had said right in the beginning that all the leads point towards Pakistan. The government of India subsequently took action against the terrorists that were harboured in Pakistan.”
“I am sure our government will utilise this admission by Pakistan to tell the world that Pakistan needs to be blacklisted by FATF and that nobody should give aid to Pakistan,” he added.
Speaking at the National Assembly earlier yesterday, Pakistan’s Science and Technology minister Fawad Chaudhry termed the dastardly Pulwama terror attack a “great achievement” under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
This statement by Chaudhry was made in response to Pakistan MP Ayaz Sadiq who had said that, "When Chief of Army Staff General Bajwa came to meet foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi for a meeting, his legs were shaking and there was sweat on his forehead. Qureshi told him to let Abhinandan go for god’s sake as India was about to attack Pakistan at 9 PM".
Choudhry in the video termed Sadiq's statement as lies and stated, "Humne Hindustan ko ghuske mara hai...aur Pukwama mein jo hamari kamiyabi hai who Imran Khan ki qayadat mein is kaum ki kamyabhi hai, uske hissedar aap bhi sab hain, uske hissedar hum bhi sab hain (We attacked India in its own territory...and Pulwama was an achievement under the leadership of Imran Khan. You (opposition) are also a stakeholder in this success)".
