At OIC, Indian FM says Pakistan harboring terrorists

April FrancisMar 04, 2019

However, Pakistan denied any terrorist camps in this area.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Sunday that the Narendra Modi government have put Kashmir on the agendas of global forums - a development always avoided by the previous Indian governments.

The latest wave of tensions began after the militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the February 14 suicide bombing by a Kashmiri militant on Indian paramilitary forces.

"Innocent civilians on this side and the other side of the border are getting killed, injured and dislocated and their properties are being damaged".

The fresh anti-militancy drive was launched after a Kashmiri suicide bomber, a member of a Pakistan-based militant group, killed 40 Indian paramilitary police on Feb 14.

Al Jazeera's Rahman said the India-Pakistan standoff is likely to be a major issue in the Indian general election, due in April and May.

While the exact details of the restrictions were discussed in a closed-door session, and thus remains classified, Miller then broadly outlined some of the restrictions, which he said were over a "dozen new and unprecedented elements" of the security plan for Pakistan.

Pakistan and India have fought two of their three wars over Kashmir since their independence from British rule in 1947.

Pakistan retaliated, shooting down a fighter jet Wednesday and detaining its pilot, who was returned to India on Friday in a peace gesture. India long has accused Pakistan of cultivating such militant groups to attack it. Pakistan has said it was not involved in that attack and was ready to help New Delhi in the investigation.

At the Line of Control (LoC), the de facto border between the two countries in the disputed Kashmir region, there was relative calm in the past 24 hours, both armies said on Sunday. The government is bringing in a unit of commandos to end a gun battle that's gone on for three days in the town of Babagund, on India's side of the Line of Control, it said.

A top Indian minister said on Saturday the government would not share proof that "a very large number" of militants were killed in air strikes inside Pakistan this week, after doubts were raised there were any casualties in the attack that stoked tensions between the nuclear-armed rivals. We are at the mercy of these soldiers, " said Mohammed Akram, a resident in Mendhar area in Indian-controlled Kashmir.

Sakina, a young woman who fled to a shelter with her two children, said the frequent shelling had made them "homeless in our own land".

While the Modi government subsequently said J&K is an integral part of India and its matters are strictly internal, Tewari said it was only a face saving exercise.

Pakistan has continued a limited opening of its airspace for commercial flights, after closing it earlier this week at the height of tensions with neighbouring India that saw both countries carry out air raids inside each other's territories for the first time since the 1971 war.
