MULTAN - Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Sunday revealed that India had established a special cell to promote terrorism in Pakistan.

The minister while addressing to people of his constituency NA 156 here said that Rs80 billion were earmarked for this special cell by the Indian government. “Pakistan would not stay silent against nefarious designs of the enemy,” he said.

The minister said Pakistan had conveyed its concerns to international community, adding, India’s attitude was highly irresponsible. 

Qureshi said enemy would face failure at every front. “Promotion of peace is not only our wish but top priority of Pakistan. Pakistan’s wish for peace should not be taken as weakness.”

He said Pakistan is fully prepared and capable of responding foreign aggression and no one would be allowed to cast an evil eye on Pakistan, Qureshi categorically stated.


The international community was also concerned over Muslims’ persecution in India. Similarly, Pakistan had always been raising the issue at different international forums. The circumstances in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K) are getting worse with every passing day. The ill-treatment towards Muslims is not limited to IIOJ&K only but the Muslims were facing with the same worse situation from across India.


The whole world witnessed what had happened in Delhi and Gujrat, he said. The foreign minister said Pakistan highlighted Indian atrocities on innocent Muslims at United Nations and some other international platforms. Qureshi urged upon media to play its due role in conveying Pakistan’s concern across the globe.


Shah Mahmood Qureshi also hinted that the second wave of coronavirus was severe and masses should demonstrate more responsibility and follow precautions strictly.


They should wear masks and adhere to recommendations of social distancing. Masses should follow instructions of National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) as it would help control the pandemic.

In case of non-compliance, the government would take hard decisions, Qureshi stated.
