Indian polity confused and hypocritical: Pak
London, Jan 29: In a statement that has further intensified the Indo-Pak strain, Pakistan Foreign Minister SM Qureshi on Thursday, Jan 28 launched a scathing attack against India by accusing the country's polity of being confused and hypocritical in its attitude towards Pakistan.
“India is confused over whether they should engage with Pakistan or shy away - rootha hua role adaa karein (act like someone who has been hurt)," he said while speaking to Indian scribes at the end of an international conference on Afghanistan here.
Pak foreign minister also said that the Indian External Affairs Minister SM Krishna has 'nothing to offer' on the 'crisp proposal and a roadmap' that he gave Krishna on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York in 2009.
He went on to say that “the public stance adopted by the Indian Foreign Office is somewhat different from the private stance."
Indians acknowledged post-26/11 Pakistani cooperation as 'unprecedented', he said adding, “but they are not willing to publicly admit that."
Speaking on the perceived IPL snub to Pakistan cricketers, Qureshi termed that the exclusion of Pak players as 'faux-pas'.
