"Humane Hindustan ko ghus kay maara. Our success in Pulwama is a success of this nation under the leadership of Imran Khan", a Pakistani minister admitted its role in the Pulwama terror attack, boasting on the floor of parliament that his country had infiltrated India and crushed it on its soil.
40 CPRF were massacred in Pulwama on 14 February last year when a vehicle-bore suicide assailants hit their convoy. The attacker was a member of Pakistan established group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
"Humane Hindustan ko ghus kay malaria (we have entered and attacked India)" said Fawad Chaudhry, minister of science and technology, in the Imran Khan cabinet, amid clapping from the ruling party. "The victory in Pulwama is a victory for the people of Pakistan under the leadership of Imran Khan," Fawad strengthened.
The way our shaheens (Airforce) and our Sipahis (soldiers) and our sons best them is a factor of embarrassment for the Indian political leadership and the Indian media, he added.
Fawad was answering the comments made by a day earlier by the former speaker and MP from the PML-N party, Ayaz Sadiq, on the floor of the house. Sadiq had asserted that the Pakistani leadership had panicked after the Pulwama attack and the successive shooting down of an Indian air force location.
Sadiq has said that Imran Khan had decided to return the Indian pilot before even meeting with the Country's Political leadership. He alleged that Imran Khan's administration was so panicked that "the legs of the Foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi kept on shaking from fear".
Fawad responded on Thursday that Sadiq " had lied with confidence". He continued by saying that Sadiq had gone against the state of Pakistan by issuing erroneous and shameful statements. "Criticise the government but don't criticise the state" he responded to Sadiq
Reacting to Choudhry's statement, Lt Gen Raj Kadyan, former deputy chief of army staff, said, "Nobody in the world doubted Pakistan's involvement in the Pulwama attack, Now, Fawad Choudhry being a minister admitting it, is a confirmation".
