Pulwama attack: CRPF issues advisory against fake pictures

Disclaiming any link between the terrorist attack and Pakistan is an oft-repeated excuse, the MEA said. "But if at all these are serious, please make note of one thing clearly that Pakistan will not think of retaliating, it will retaliate". Khan vowed on Tuesday that if any militant group was using Pakistani soil to launch attacks, "its enmity is with us".

The fighting went on for several hours in the Pulwama district, south of India-administered Kashmir's main city of Srinaga, where Indian soldiers were searching for militants tied to the Pakistan-based Islamist group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), which claimed last week's attack.

With tension mounting, Pakistan withdrew its envoy to India for consultations, a spokesman for Pakistan's foreign ministry said on Twitter on Monday.

"Now the entire world needs to unite to take concrete steps to deal with terrorism and supporters".

On Monday Saudi Arabia vowed to "de-escalate" the situation during a high-profile state visit by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Islamabad.

"The prime minister of Pakistan has offered to investigate the matter if India provides proof".

Kashmiri students are facing torture, harassment and threats at the hands of angry mobs in the stretches of India after the Pulwama attack, which left 44 Indian soldiers dead. Control is split between the two countries but each claims the region in full.

India and Pakistan have cross-border tensions and conflict between the two countries gets heated on and off the sports fields. Paksitan's military has a long history of sponsoring militant groups as a foreign policy tool and India has for decades accused it of stoking unrest in Kashmir.

Since Thursday's attack, sources say Kashmiris living outside their state have faced property evictions, job suspensions and attacks on social media, which was the deadliest attack on Indian security forces in Kashmir since the insurgency started in the late 1980s.

Islamabad condemned it while also cautioning India against linking Pakistan to the bombing without an investigation.

He said: "For domestic political reasons, India has deliberately ratcheted up its hostile rhetoric against Pakistan and created a tense environment". Following the terrorist attack, Trump's National Security Advisor, John Bolton, has supported India's right to self-defence. The Army was constantly briefing Defence Minister Nirmala Sithraman and other top officials on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir following the Pulwama attack.

"We are at a risky moment, and authorities must do everything they can to uphold the rule of law,"Aakar Patel, head of Amnesty International India, said".

Pakistan's military has a long record of nurturing militants as proxies in pursuit of foreign policy objectives, and India has for years accused Islamabad of supporting jihadists waging a almost 30-year revolt in its only Muslim-majority state.
