the transcripts included in the Mumbai police charge-sheet against the Republic TV anchor in the TRP case have further exposed India’s sinister designs and vindicated Pakistan’s long held position.”
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Sunday said that the leaked WhatsApp messages of Arnab Goswami regarding the Pulwama attack has exposed India’s sinister designs and vindicated Pakistan’s long-held position, said Foreign Office spokesman.
In recent months, the world community has been presented with irrefutable evidence of India’s state-sponsorship of terrorism against Pakistan and anti-Pakistan disinformation and smear campaign globally, the foreign office claimed.
Foreign office spokesman said, “the transcripts included in the Mumbai police charge-sheet against the Republic TV anchor in the TRP case have further exposed India’s sinister designs and vindicated Pakistan’s long held position.”
The latest revelations confirm what Pakistan has consistently pointed out regarding the BJP government staging “false flag” operations, maligning Pakistan with terrorism-related allegations, stoking hyper-nationalism in the country, claiming to have launched so-called “surgical strike” and then deviously manipulating national sentiment in its bid to win elections.
“The pattern is unmistakable, and has been repeated to suit the RSS-BJP regime’s electoral calculations.”
The foreign office spokesman said that they had, at the outset, rejected India’s malicious propaganda against Pakistan and highlighted that the biggest beneficiary of the Pulwama attack in February 2019 was the BJP government, as it secured landslide victory in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections.
The transcripts from the leaked WhatsApp messages of Arnab Goswami provided further evidence of how this whole enterprise from ‘false flag’ operation to massive electoral success was scripted and fully realized, the FO said.
He further said that the transcripts also illustrate the unholy nexus between the ‘Hindutva’ regime and its cronies in the Indian media.
“On one hand, they show how far and deeply the extremist agenda of the RSS-BJP combine has permeated India’s institutions and pillars of the State while on the other hand, they show how the rights and freedoms of Indian citizens and democratic values in Indian society are being seriously jeopardized through cynical manipulation,” the press release issued said adding that equally important, they show how actions of this reckless regime driven by considerations of domestic politics are gravely imperiling regional peace and security.
The foreign office said that Pakistan, for its part, will continue to counter Indian falsehoods with truth and act firmly and responsibly in the face of India’s provocations.
