SUNDAY TIMES ISLAMABAD:In an interview he said India tried to blame everything on Pakistan. “International media’s reports about an Indian airstrike in Balakot reflect the truth.”

In reference to the Pulwama incident, the minister said even Indian intellectuals and media had been saying that the Feb 14 attack in Pulwama district was an inside job. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi attempted to capitalise on the Pulwama attack ahead of upcoming elections in India, he added.

He said the Indian Air Force’s (IAF) failure damaged the narrative of Modi.

Chaudhry said Indian atrocities in the occupied Kashmir have caused a wave of hatred against New Delhi.
