Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has confessed that a large section of people in his country has been radicalised in the name of Islam.
General Bajwa’s confession is a big embarrassment to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan who had asked India to provide proof regarding his country’s complicity in Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were martyred. India had responded by saying that Imran will get numerous proofs if he looks inside his country.
“There is no place for caliphate in the society. We have radicalised a large section of people in the name of jihad. We have strengthened such people by providing them with weapons and political power. We are reaping what we had sown 40 years ago,” General Bajwa said.
In a big ambarrassment to Pakistan, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Thursday condemned Pulwama terror attack perpetrated by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed in the “strongest terms”.
Significantly, the press statement issued by the UNSC named the Pakistan-based terror group JeM , headed by Masood Azhar.
The members also reiterated that any “acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed”.
