ISLAMABAD, Nov 16 (APP): Pakistan on Monday categorically rejecting India’s response to the irrefutable evidence provided by Pakistan about its state-sponsored terrorism, said “bland denials and regurgitation of old litany of charges, will not change facts”.

“Fully exposed, India has typically resorted to sophistry, obfuscation and re-fabrication,” the Foreign Office said in a statement.

The Foreign Office said the dossier presented by Pakistan extensively documented India’s active planning, promoting, aiding, abetting, financing and execution of terrorist activities against Pakistan.

Since 2001, Pakistan has faced more than 19,000 terrorist attacks on its soil and suffered 83,000 causalities, it said.

It mentioned that direct economic losses have been upward of US $ 126 billion. As a result of India’s sponsorship of terrorism, from across borders, Pakistan continued to suffer immensely.

The Foreign Office said India had mischievously masqueraded as a ‘victim’ of terrorism and sought to mislead the international community by hypocritically levelling terrorism-related allegations against Pakistan.

Also, India conducted false flag operations in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and inside India to malign Pakistan.

The Foreign Office said the façade had now been removed and the world could see the real face of India – one blackened by its decades-long state-terrorism in IIOJK and state-sponsored terrorism and destabilization efforts in Pakistan.

It said the most familiar and undeniable face of India’s state-sponsorship of terrorism against Pakistan was Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav — caught red-handed in March 2016.

His complicity in subversion, sabotage and terrorism in Pakistan is part of the incontrovertible evidence against India, it added.

The Foreign Office said: “The world is also familiar with “saffron terror” orchestrated and unleashed by the RSS-BJP zealots against Muslims in India and against Pakistan.”

Masterminds of Mecca Masjid, Ajmer Dargah, and Samjhota Express terrorist cases, like Swami Aseemanand, have been granted full state protection and acquitted in complete travesty of justice after having confessed to India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA), it said.

The Foreign Office said open threats to Pakistan by Indian civilian and military leaders, India’s sinister design to subvert China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), and public statements by noted Indian politicians and senior security officials on ‘teaching Pakistan’ a lesson through use of terrorism constituted further incriminating evidence.

“The presence of ISIL and AQIS in India as highlighted in recent UN reports indicate that India is emerging as a hotbed of UN designated international terrorist organizations and posing a great risk to the region,” it added.

It said, “Recent revelations by FINCEN files illustrate how India uses its financial system for money laundering and other illegal activities such as terrorism financing — brazenly and with impunity.”

The FO statement mentioned that use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy by India maked it culpable under international law, UN sanctions regime, and international counter-terrorism conventions.

It pointed that it was the collective responsibility of the world community to hold India to account and take practical steps to proceed against the Indian nationals involved in patronage of terrorist entities,.

“We also expect the UN counter-terrorism bodies to proceed on the basis of concrete evidence provided by Pakistan and urge India to renounce use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy,” it said.

The Foreign Office said the UN must also play its part in dismantling of the Indian terrorist infrastructure, details of which have been provided in the dossier.
