Indian ministry re-summons Pakistani HC to wage diplomatic war


Indian Ministry of External Affairs again summoned Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit in New Delhi and handed him over the so-called proofs of the Uri attack.

Basit rejected the so-called Indian allegations in the strongest term, terming the Indian evidence “a pack of lies”.

He also asked India to stop levelling allegations without proofs.

The second time summoning came a day after Sushma Swaraj, External Affairs Minister addressed the General Assembly of United Nations claiming disputed territory of Kashmir as an “integral” part of India and demanding Pakistan to forget “Kashmir dream.”

Minister of External Affairs has claimed that the militants arrived in Indian-held Kashmir from Muzaffarabad.

However, the Pakistani envoy cleared once again that Pakistan was desirous of friendly terms with not the neighbouring states but the world.

On September 11, in a pre-dawn strike, four militants had entered Indian Brigade Headquarters in Baramulla District of Kashmir valley that is held by India forcefully using instruments like curfew, armed personnel, media blackout and putting Hurriyat leaders under house arrest from time to time.

The attack was reported as one of the deadliest in the area in the past seven decades of Indian occupation.

Earlier this year, a freedom fighter was martyred by Indian security agencies in one of many bloody strikes in the valley paving way for the locals to storm streets and register protests.

India exercised over a month-long curfew in the occupied valley over the demonstration and resorted to media blackout fearing attention to the atrocities.

It was then that at least 80 locals were martyred and hundreds injured sparking debate over the use of pellet guns and ammunition.

Narendra Modi, Indian Prime Minister has presided over at least three meetings of cabinet committee on security, a high-level meeting to review Indus Water Treaty, possibly to cut water supply to Pakistan and a meeting of chiefs of three armed forces in the war room in the capital, New Delhi ever since Uri attack.

Ministry of External Affairs had first summoned Abdul Basit less than the week ago launching a diplomatic war with Pakistan after failing to justify the deployment of troops in Kashmir valley, curfews and the latest violent confrontations with peaceful protesters that left hundreds of them vulnerable to losing eyesight owing to use of pellet guns.

After the escalation of tensions over Uri attack, followers of extremist Indian ideologies have taken the war on different fronts, one of such being threats to Pakistani artists to leave the country and fanning anti-Pakistan propaganda using media besides moving ordnance to Line of Control.
