Pakistan strongly rejects Indian ministry’s irresponsible remarks
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan has strongly rejected remarks of Indian Ministry of External Affairs over comments by the Pakistani leadership regarding minorities' rights in India. The FO spokesperson in a press release termed the remarks as irresponsible and completely ill-founded. It further said treatment with minorities in India is a matter of serious concern not only for the minorities and the neighbouring countries but also for the international community. The spokesperson advised India to take effective steps to protect the fundamental rights of minorities especially Muslims in the country. Earlier, the Foreign Office (FO) has strongly rejected the allegations made by the Indian army chief against Pakistan on Friday morning. In her opening statement at the weekly news briefing, Foreign Office spokesperson Aisha Farooqui termed those allegations as irresponsible, false and spurious. She said these baseless Indian allegations are patently designed to divert global and domestic attention from India’s state-terrorism and egregious human rights violations and clamping of fundamental freedoms in occupied Jammu and Kashmir particularly post August 5, 2019.
