India rebutts Pakistan’s allegations of funding terror

November 4, 2009

NEW DELHI – India Tuesday refuted Pakistan’s accusation that it was instigating trouble in the neighbouring country and rejected any connection with its internal developments.

“We have absolutely nothing to do with whatever is happening in Balochistan or whatever is happening within Pakistan. I think it is their own making,” External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said.

Krishna added that there was total confusion in Pakistan and stressed that there was no effective government functioning there.

Pakistan’s military spokesperson Athar Abbas Tuesday claimed that Islamabad has enough evidence to substantiate that India was funding terror in South Waziristan.

He alleged that Pakistani security forces had seized Indian-made arms and equipment from the Taliban bastion of South Waziristan and added that Islamabad would soon raise the issue through diplomatic channels.

“The Pakistan Foreign Office has been informed of the discovery of Indian ammunition. The matter would be taken up through diplomatic channels with the Indian authorities, he said.

Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik had recently alleged that India was supplying arms to Taliban militants – a charge New Delhi has seen as a sign of Pakistan’s bid to cover up its perceived inaction over the perpetrators of the Mumbai carnage.

Reacting to these charges, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh last week said Islamabad’s allegations had no basis. “What was said about the Indian role in Balochistan has no basis. Those who are levelling these false charges know it jolly well,” the prime minister told a press conference in Srinagar.

“The same applies to the accusation of India supporting the Taliban. Nothing can be far fetched, far from the truth. We are victims of terrorism aided and abetted from the Pakistan side. Both references to Balochistan and what is said about Taliban are widely false,” he said.
