Report on funding Pak's MQM baseless, says India

India on Wednesday dismissed a report by the BBC, which suggested that New Delhi funded the Muttahida Qaumi Movement  (MQM) of Pakistan and “trained” the militants.

“The BBC report on India training MQM members is completely baseless. Shortcomings of governance cannot be rationalised by blaming neighbours,” External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup posted on Twitter.

Quoting “an authoritative Pakistani source” to report that officials in Pakistan’s MQM party had told the UK authorities that they had “received Indian government funds”.

The BBC also reported that the UK authorities “investigating the MQM for alleged money laundering” had also found “a list of weapons in an MQM property”.
