A day after prime minister Narendra Modi castigated Pakistan for sponsoring terrorism, BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday slammed the neighbouring country for disturbing regional and global peace.
Speaking on the last day of the BJP national council meet at Kozhikode in Kerala, Amit Shah said, "If a country makes terrorism its state policy, it's nothing less than a war crime."
Lashing out at Pakistan's prime minster Nawaz Shari for his much criticized speech at UNGA, the BJP president said that Pakistan had been brazenly supporting and sponsoring terrorism.
"Pakistan's prime minister Nawaz Sharif's speech at UN is the solid proof that Pakistan advocates terrorism across the globe. The whole world is surprised at Sharif's blatant attempt to paint self-proclaimed commander of terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen, Burhan Wani as a peace loving youth," Shah said.
Terming Pakistan as the epicentre of terrorism, Shah said that Islamabad spent billions of dollars to train terrorists and send them across the globe.
Shah also blamed Pakistan for fomenting trouble in the Kashmir Valley. "Pakistan has encouraged the separatist extremists in Jammu and Kashmir," the BJP president said.
Paying respect to the martyrs, who laid their lives during Uri terror attack, Shah said that the government was committed to give a fitting reply to Pakistan sponsored terrorism. He appealed to all the political parties to bury their differences and support NDA government to strategize a comprehensive policy in fight against terrorism.
