Strongly reacting to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks that Pakistan is the “mothership of terrorism”, Premier Nawaz Sharif’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Sunday accused the Indian leader of “misleading” the BRICS countries over the issue. “Mr Modi is misleading his BRICS and BIMSTEC colleagues,” Aziz said. He also alleged that the Indian leadership is “desperately trying to hide its brutalities” in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan Foreign Office (FO) said that Aziz reacted strongly to Modi’s statement during his address at the BRICS summit in Goa in which he called Pakistan a “mothership” of terrorism world-wide.

Accusing India of “terror financing”, Aziz said “India has no moral ground to even talk about counter-terrorism efforts let alone do the finger pointing.”
