ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan Wednesday said unnecessary blame game unleashed by India would harm peace initiatives and efforts of improving bilateral relations between the two countries.

In a statement, he said Pakistan wants peace which could only be achieved by promoting bilateral relations. Such propaganda tactics and unnecessary allegations can harm peace process, which is not in favour of both the countries.

The minister Pakistan must not be blamed for India’s internal weaknesses. The unnecessary hue and cry of India and its media against Pakistan is incomprehensible, he added.

India had lodged a diplomatic protest with Pakistan over an attack on an army post in the disputed Kashmir region in which five of its soldiers were killed on Tuesday.

According to Indian spokesman the killing incident occurred five kilometers inside Line of Control. The question is how Pakistan Army reached five kilometer inside LoC, in a high security zone and vigilance of Indian Army, he inquired.

An attack at such a sensitive place was nearly impossible, he said and added, it is mere propaganda of the Indians that Pakistan Army has intruded inside the LoC.

“Even if a cracker goes off in India, Pakistan is blamed for it,” the minister said.
