Pakistan must behave like a responsible neighbor: India
Srinagar : Tagging statements by Pakistan over Kashmir as 'irresponsible', India on Thursday denounced Pakistan's claims and said Kashmir is an internal matter of India.
"We condemn the irresponsible remarks and tweets by Pakistani leaders on matters internal to India," said foreign ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar, referring to Pakistani ministers making threats following the government's decision to end special status to Jammu and Kashmir and split it into two union territories.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, on the other hand, is trying every possible bit to make Kashmir and international issue; he also even threatened India to go for a nuclear war.
Mr Kumar said the statements included an apparent reference to "Jihad within the territory of India to incite violence".
A Pakistani Minister on Wednesday predicted war with India. "The main motive behind this is to form an alarming situation for India which is far from ground realities. Pakistan needs to understand that they have been snubbed from all sides. The world has seen their provocative and unsubstantiated rhetoric based on lies and deceit," said the foreign ministry official.
Raveesh Kumar also mentioned that there are reports of infiltration by Pakistani terrorists on the Indian borders.
"Pakistan should behave like a normal neighbour, do normal talk, normal trade...This is not something that is happening from Pakistan. We would like them to behave like normal neighbours do, not push terrorists in the neighbouring country," he said.
On the letter written by Pakistani minister Shireen Mazari to the UN on Jammu and Kashmir, Mr Kumar said: "Frankly, we don't want to lend credence to the letter by reacting to it."
