India Condemns Pakistan Army Chief For Glorifying Burhan Wani, Says ‘Support to Terror Must be Condemned’

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Government said Pakistan’s blatant endorsement of terrorists and terror outfits needs to be condemned.
  • Pakistan army chief Gen Bajwa had praised Hizb terrorist Burhan Wani on his death anniversary.
  • Pakistan’s terror support and sponsorship needs to be condemned by one and all: MEA

NEW DELHI: The government on Sunday said the international community must come together in condemning Pakistan’s “support and sponsorship” of terror, which was evident in the blatant endorsement of terror outfits and their operatives by top Pakistani officials.

“First Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson read from banned LeT’s script. Now Pakistan’s COAS glorifies Burhan Wani. Pakistan’s terror support and sponsorship needs to be condemned by one and all,” foreign ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay said in a tweet today.

Baglay was referring to a tweet from the official Twitter handle of Pakistan Army spokesperson Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, who said army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa had reportedly eulogised Hizbul terrorist Burhan Wani on July 8, the day he was killed in an encounter with Indian security forces in Kashmir last year.

“Kashmiris have right of self determination. Sacrifices of Burhan Wani and generations against Indian atrocities are a testimony of their resolve,” Ghafoor had tweeted quoting Gen Bajwa on Saturday.

“The blood rendered by Burhan Muzaffar Wani has infused a new spirit in the freedom movement. The Kashmiri people are steadfast to take their movement to logical conclusion,” Sharif had said.

Earlier, Pakistan’s Foreign Office had come out in defence of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin and said his designation as a global terrorist by the United States was “completely unjustified”.

At the recently concluded G-20 Summit in Germany, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a strong pitch for action against countries that provide a platform to terror organisations for political ends. Bracketing Pakistan-based terror groups like LeT and JeM with ISIS and al-Qaeda, PM Modi said G20 nations should also “collectively oppose terrorism financing, franchises, safe havens, support and sponsors.”
