"This terror group (JeM) is led by the Masood Azhar, who has been given full freedom by Government of Pakistan to operate and expand his terror infrastructure in territories under the control of Pakistan and to carry out attacks in India," the statement read.
Evidence be damned, Pakistan claims it wasn't involved
Despite JeM's confession, Pakistan has chosen to remain ignorant. While the country's Prime Minister Imran Khan hasn't released any statement, whatsoever, his ministers have been parroting the same standard reply.
Pakistan minister Fawad Chaudhry claimed it was wrong to blame Pakistan for everything.
Separately, foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said no one can browbeat Pakistan and asked India to give proofs to support theories.
Give us proofs, we will investigate: Pakistan minister
"Knee-jerk reaction from India is saddening. Blame-game achieved nothing in the past, and will not achieve anything now. If India has any evidence, it should share that with Pakistan, and we will investigate," Qureshi reportedly said.
