After Trump threatens to cut aid to Pak, India says stand vindicated

India on Monday said that it stood vindicated as US President Donald Trump accused Pakistan of doing nothing to fight terrorists despite receiving a whopping $ 33 billion aid in the past 15 years.

"We can reasonably argue that Trump Administration's decision today (Monday) has abundantly vindicated India's stand as far as terror is concerned and as far as Pakistan's role in perpetrating terror is concerned," said Jitendra Singh, Minister of State in PMO.

New Delhi has since long been accusing Islamabad of pursuing a "selective approach" while combating terror organizations based in Pakistan, targeting only some groups, but sparing and, in some cases, even using the others, like Haqqani Network, Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT).

The Haqqani Network was held responsible for terror attacks on Embassy and Consulates General of India in Afghanistan in the past. The JeM and LeT carried out several attacks in India.

New Delhi has been accusing Islamabad of misusing US aid for funding anti-India terror organisations like LeT and JeM instead of combatting terrorists like Al Qaeda and Taliban.
