India targets Pakistan for nurturing Salahuddin

India said Hizbul chief Syed Salahuddin’s recent interview had proved the complicity of Pakistan’s “state structure” in exporting terror to other countries in the region.

“The brazen admission by Salahuddin of perpetrating terrorist attacks on India and having the capacity to carry out such attacks at any place and time in India is further proof of Pakistan’s continuing policy of cross-border terrorism,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Gopal Baglay said in New Delhi.

His comment came a day after a Pakistani TV channel aired one of Salahuddin’s interviews.

New Delhi also pointed out that the interview highlighted the unabashed manner in which terrorist organisations and leaders enjoyed freedom of operations in Pakistan, including access to terror financing and procurement and supply of weapons for terrorism.

“It is a matter of deep regret that senior Pakistani functionaries continue to justify and defend the activities of such internationally designated terrorist entities,” Baglay said.
