Pulwama Attack: Pakistan takes control of Jaish-e-Mohammed headquarters
New Delhi : In the first action against terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed, the Pakistan government has taken control of the terrorist group's headquarter in Bahawalpur, said an Interior Minister on Friday.
The action came as a measure discussed by the National Security Committee that met under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday.
The National Security Committee has decided to “accelerate action against proscribed organisations” and to notify Hafiz Saeed’s Jamaat-ut-Dawah (JuD) and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) as banned groups, an interior ministry spokesman said.
In an official statement, the National Security Committee has noted that "the state of Pakistan is not involved in any way, means or form in the said incident.”
The statement mentioned that Pakistan will take all possible action against anyone using its soil on the basis of tangible evidence.
The statement said India needs introspection “to realize that why people of (Jammu and Kashmir) have lost fear of death”.
“At the same time, the Prime Minister (Imran Khan) authorised armed forces of Pakistan to respond decisively and comprehensively to any aggression or misadventure by India,” the statement said.
