New Delhi: In the wake of Pulwama terror attack, Minister of State (MoS) for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Giriraj Singh on Tuesday hit out at Bollywood actors Naseeruddin Shah, Kamal Haasan and alleged that they have become agents of ‘ghazwa-e-hind’ (Islamikaran). Speaking to reporters, the BJP leader further claimed that in Pakistan there are talks of spreading Islam in India and post the Pulwama attack, this ‘Islamikaran’ has gained momentum.
This is not the first time Singh has made such controversial statement. Earlier also he had called the Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband a ‘temple of terrorism’ and had warned that no one in this world will be able to stop the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan broke his silence over the deadly attack that claimed lives of 40 CRPF jawans. He said that India blamed Islamabad for the terror attack in J&K without any evidence and that his country will retaliate if New Delhi launches an attack.
Baffled over the mounting pressure from several countries to act against terrorism in wake of the Pulwama terror attack, claimed by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed, Khan said that he will take action and start a probe if India provides evidence of Islamabad’s involvement.
“My statement is for the Indian government. You (Indian govt) have blamed the Pakistan government without any evidence,” said Khan while addressing the media over the Pulwama terror attack.
“It is in our interest that nobody from our soil spreads violence. I want to tell Indian govt that we will take action if evidence is found against anyone from Pakistan,” he added.
Khan further said that the “new Pakistan” only wants stability and that the issue can be solved only through dialogue.
At least 40 CRPF personnel were killed in one of the deadliest terror attacks in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir when a suicide bomber rammed a vehicle carrying over 100 kg of explosives into their bus last Thursday.
More than 2,500 Central Reserve Police Force personnel, many of them returning from leave to rejoin duty in the Valley, were travelling in the convoy of 78 vehicles when they were ambushed on the Srinagar-Jammu highway at Latoomode in Awantipora in south Kashmir.
