Imran Khan Urges To Give Chance For Peace
On Sunday Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan urged Narendra Modi to give peace a chance and assured him that he stands by his words and will immediately act if the Indian Government provides Islamabad with actionable intelligence on the Pulwama attack.
Imran Khan spoke these words a day after Modi in a rally at Rajasthan mentioned, "there is a consensus in the entire world against terrorism. We are moving ahead with the strength to punish the perpetrators of terrorism. The scores will be settled this time, settled for good. This is a changed India, this pain will not be tolerated. We know how to crush terrorism.”
A statement released from Pakistan Prime Minister's office said that PM Imran Khan stands by his words that if India gives them actionable intelligence, they are ready to act immediately.
The statement for Khan included that PM Modi should give peace a chance.
Earlier on February 19, Imran Khan stated that he would act against the perpetrators of the deadly Pulwama terror attack, carried out by Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror group, if it shares actionable intelligence with Islamabad, but warned Indian government against launching any revenge retaliatory action but India quoted that Khan’s offer to investigate the attack if provided proof is a “lame excuse”.
Speaking about Khans words, Ministry of External affairs mentioned, “It is a well-known fact that Jaish-e-Mohammad and its leader Masood Azhar are based in Pakistan. This will be sufficient enough for Pakistan to take action. Prime Minister of Pakistan asking to provide for proofs is a lame excuse. In the horrific attack in Mumbai on 26/11, the proof was provided to Pakistan. Though the case didn't step into any progress for the last more than 10 years. Similar to this, on the terror attack on Pathankot airbase, there has been no progress. Promises of guaranteed action ring hollow given the track record of Pakistan.”
