New Delhi, Dec 27: Pakistan has a 'pack of lies' everytime it is held responsible. In what might be called a blatant lie, Pakistan claims to have banned the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), the front organisation of Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and the key perpetrators of the Mumbai Terror attacks, as per the United Nations Security Council's resolution.
The Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi made the statement during a phone conversation with his Chinese counterpart while underlining the need for India to pursue a policy of restraint and responsibility.
Qureshi said,"Pakistan was in 'full compliance' with UN Security Council resolution 1267 that called for action against the Jamaat-ud-Dawa and four LeT leaders included in the list of terrorists." An audacious statement from Pakistan considering it has been calling the JuD a charitable trust.
Even after Pakistan claims to have banned JuD, the JuD website is very much active. In fact, Tehrik-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan a few days ago had protested along with political parties not to ban JuD as it was a charitable organisation.
Pakistan also accused India for the Lahore blasts of Wednesday, Dec 24. Pak also went on to say that four Indians were involved in the Lahore blasts.
Following the reports, a pro-Taliban group claimed responsible for the Lahore blasts and also stated that Pakistan had lied that 4 Indians were involve din the blasts. A spokesperson of the group called up a local Pakistan newspaper to claim responsibility of the attacks. The group also threatened more attacks against the security forces and government installations.
