He began his address with a point that there are some topics that he wanted to elaborate for a while. He further added that the most of his discussion will be related to the situation after the Pulwama attack.
DG ISPR Asif Ghafoor said that “On February 14, a Kashmiri youngster targeted Indian security forces. After the incident, India starting bombarding Pakistan with allegations without any thought or proof,” Major General Ghafoor said. “Pakistan took time to respond. We wanted to investigate the allegations and when we were sure footed, the prime minister of Pakistan responded.”
He further added that “Whenever the situation improves in Pakistan, India tries to destabilise the country,” he asserted. “In February when the Pulwama attack happened there were eight important events in Pakistan — Saudi crown prince’s visit, Afghan reconciliation process, UNSC talking about terror financing, EU deliberating on human rights violations in occupied Kashmir, Kulbhushan Jadhav hearing, FATF hearing and decision on Pakistan, PSL and Kartarpur meeting. The elections are upcoming in India and the indigenous struggle in occupied Kashmir is high.”
DG ISPR Asif Ghafoor elaborated that “The attack took place miles away from the Line of Control (LoC) and the explosives used were not from Pakistan. The car used was not from Pakistan either. The attack was carried out by a youngster from occupied Kashmir who was mistreated by Indian security forces.”
