India on Monday hit out at Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi for his “absurd comments” linking India to the terror attack on the Pakistan stock exchange building in Karachi.
In a strongly-worded response, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said unlike Pakistan, India has no hesitation in condemning terrorism anywhere in the world including in Karachi.
He also reminded Qureshi how the Pakistan prime minister described a global terrorist as a “martyr”. Hours after gunmen attacked the Pakistani stock exchange in Karachi, Qureshi alleged that the clues of strike are leading towards sleeper cells activated by India.
“India rejects the absurd comments of the Foreign Minister of Pakistan on the terrorist attack in Karachi. Pakistan cannot shift the blame on India for its domestic problems. Unlike Pakistan, India has no hesitation in condemning terrorism anywhere in the world, including in Karachi,” Srivastava said.
