India is funding Rs 80 billion terrorism in Pakistan: Qureshi November – Pakistan has made serious allegations that India has invested in spreading terrorism in the country. Saturday Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and DG ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar stated that India was sabotaging the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and is supporting terrorism in Pakistan.
In a joint media conference, foreign minister Qureshi said, “You can see a pattern of constant ceasefire violations.”
During the media conference, Minister Qureshi and the military spokesperson Iftikhar presented a dossier detailing India’s involvement in terror attacks in Pakistan. Multiple video clips and audio clips, along with documents, were presented during the media conference of Indian handlers and terrorists communicating with each other and Indian intelligence handlers passing on instructions to terrorists in Pakistan.
Foreign minister Qureshi said during recent months, India has tried its best to fan terrorism across Pakistan. He added, “Indian intelligence agencies are today supporting terrorist groups defeated and outlawed by Pakistan.” He added that the country has information and evidence of India promoting terrorism in Pakistan and “has developed a plan to destabilize Pakistan”. He named two Indian intelligence agencies, RAW and DIA, which are financing, training, and harboring terrorists.
He further elaborated that New Delhi has distributed Rs22 billion for the purpose of promoting and carrying out terror activities in Pakistan. He further said New Delhi has established a cell in their intelligence agency with the sole objective of disrupting CPEC projects. He said, “The cell works under the supervision of the Indian prime minister and its mandate is to disrupt CPEC projects. A sum of Rs80 billion has been allocated for this purpose. There are also reports that India has established a 700-strong militia to target CPEC projects.”
Likewise, Major General Babar Iftikhar, giving details of Indian involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan, said India embraced all terrorist organisations soon after they were uprooted from Pakistan. He said, “I shall cover the details of Indian machinations for Pakistan’s destabilization and economic coercion by presenting evidence in the domains of funding terrorism, weapons and equipment support to terrorists, terrorist training and terrorist activities.”
Elaborating further, military spokesperson Iftikhar said, “an Indian intelligence officer, Colonel Rajesh, employed at Indian Embassy in Afghanistan, is the master planner and a letter reveals that he has held four meetings with commanders of these terror outfits “to synergize their efforts and upscale terrorist activities in metropolitan cities in November and December 2020. Recently, 30 Indian Daesh militants were relocated from India to various camps along Pakistan-Afghanistan border by two Indian intelligence agencies operatives. These militants were handed over to Daesh Commander Shiekh Abdul Rahim alias Abdul Rehman Muslim Dost.”
