India has slammed Pakistan over the Pulwama terror attack carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammed and asked Islamabad to stop supporting terrorists and dismantle terror infrastructure operating from its soil. The Ministry of External Affairs, MEA in a release also strongly reiterated its appeal to all members of the international community to support the proposal to list terrorists, including Jaish-e-Mohammed Chief Masood Azhar, as a designated terrorist under the 1267 Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council.
New Delhi said Masood Azhar has been given full freedom by the Pakistan government to operate and expand his terror infrastructure in territories under the control of Islamabad and to carry out attacks in India and elsewhere with impunity. It again appealed to ban terror groups operating from territories controlled by Pakistan.
Condemning the attack as cowardly, heinous and despicable, the MEA said, the government of India is firmly and resolutely committed to taking all necessary measures to safeguard national security. It said India is equally resolved to fight against the menace of terrorism. India expressed its sincere condolences to the family of the fearless security personnel who made the supreme sacrifice.
