New Delhi: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has at last broken his silence over the Pulwama massacre that claimed at least 40 CRPF jawans’ lives in Jammu and Kashmir.
In an official statement on the Pulwama terror attack, Khan said that India had blamed Pakistan for the attack without any evidence. He further challenged India to provide evidence and said that he will immediately take action then.
“Pakistan ko isse kya faayda hai? Kyu Pakistan karega iss stage ke upar jab Pakistan stability ki taraf ja raha hai? (How will it benefit Pakistan. Why will Pakistan do something like this when it is moving towards stability?)”

However, Khan is forgetting that Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammed had claimed responsibly for the attack.
Moreover, threatening India, the Pakistan Prime Minister said, “If you (Indian govt) thinks you will attack us and we will not think of retaliating, we will retaliate. We all know starting a war is in the hands of humans, where it will lead us only God knows. This issue should be solved through dialogue.”
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Corps Commander of Chinar Corps, Indian Army, Kanwal Jeet Singh Dhillon said that Pakistan's main spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency was involved in the terror attack.
Indian government sources also claimed that Khan’s speech was written and edited by ISI and it is too late for any kind of statement from Pakistan.
On February 14, the JeM suicide bomber rammed an SUV car with 350 kg of explosives into a security convoy of 78 vehicles carrying over 2,500 personnel. Most of them were returning to duty after spending their holidays in their respective destinations.
