Fawad advises Modi to contest elections on performance, not on anti-Pakistan slogans


ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry Wednesday advised the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to contest elections on performance not on anti-Pakistan slogans.
Talking to newsmen at the Parliament House after parliamentary party meeting, he said Pakistan strongly denounced the Indian blame game.
He said that the foreign ministry reacted promptly after the Pulwama attack and now the Indian side is in ‘isolation’, not Pakistan.
“Statements coming from European Union, President Trump show India failing to catch International attention,” he continued.
He relayed that Prime Minister Imran Khan has extended Pakistan’s support to India to probe into the Pulwama attack as we do not want to escalate tensions in the region.
Warning India to restrain from any misadventure, the minister said Pakistan will retaliate in befitting manner over any cross-border aggression.
He said the parliamentary party also expressed concerns over increasing attacks over Kashmiris and urged the International community to take steps on the war footing and protect the innocent Kashmiris.
He said that Pakistan fought its case in the International Court of Justice pertaining to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav in a brilliant way.
Chaudhry said the Indian spy, who was arrested from Balochistan in March 2016 and later sentenced to death for involvement in terrorism inside Pakistan, carried original Indian passport.
“Why was Jadhav retired from service before reaching set age limit,” he questioned, pointing to one of the several questions raised during Pakistan’s argument in the case, which have so far been unanswered.
India took the stance in ICJ that Jadhav was held from Iran, the minister recounted, questioning, “So, did India inquire Iran about it?”
He maintained the world was not accepting India’s stance in the case.
