Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Secretary-Information Shafqat Mahmood on Saturday said that the PTI has noted with grave concern the deteriorating situation on the line of control (LoC) in Kashmir and denounces the unprovoked attack by Indian forces over the LoC.
“In the past few days, there have been repeated incidents of aggression by the Indian Army resulting in the martyrdom of Pakistani soldiers. This unprovoked aggression by Indian forces is against the spirit of the peace process initiated between the two countries and is condemned in the strongest possible terms,” said Shafqat Mahmood in a statement issued here.
“Chairman PTI Imran Khan has expressed deepest sympathies on his behalf and on behalf of his party with the families of the martyrs and prayed that may Allah give them the strength to bear this irreparable loss”.
The PTI leader also deplored over the role being played by the Indian media in manufacturing stories of beheadings of Indian soldiers to further inflame public opinion in India was also noticed with concern by the PTI.
The Pakistani media on the other hand has played a more responsible role and while critical of provocations by the Indian army, exercised restraint in its discourse,” he observed. “Paying tribute to the valour of the Pakistani soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice in defence of the nation, Chairman PTI Imran Khan has advised immediate contact by both sides through established channels of communication to ensure that the tense situation on the LoC is diffused”.
