Pakistan Rejects Involvement of Any Group in Pulwama Terror Attacks in Kashmir

Pakistan’s investigations have found no evidence of the use of its soil by any terrorist group in the deadly suicide attack in Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir which killed over 40 Indian CRPF soldiers.

The Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) militant group which, Indian alleges, operates from Pakistan, purportedly claimed responsibility for the attack. “Pakistani authorities had conducted investigations into the Pulwama attack and found no evidence whatsoever of any involvement of Pakistan or any organisation in the attack.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan had offered India help in the investigation and promised to take action against any group found involved in the Pulwama attack. However, New Delhi rejected the offer and instead started whipping up war hysteria.

India also shared with Pakistan a so-called dossier containing what it called evidence of JeM’s involvement in the Pulwama attack. The security official, however, denied the document contains any incriminating evidence against any group.

The National Security Committee, which met immediately after the Pulwama attack, had decided to launch a decisive purge against all proscribed groups according to the National Action Plan (NAP).

Subsequently, Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) – the two charities run by Hafiz Saeed – were banned in the country. The security official said the implementation of NAP would be further expedited. However, he clarified that the decision to act decisively against proscribed groups was not under any foreign pressure.
