Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif during an interview with Asia Society disclosed Pakistan was offered to exchange self-confessed Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav with a terrorist involved in the 2014 attack on Army Public School in Peshawar.
On being asked if India is using its presence in Afghanistan to undermine Pakistan’s stability, the minister replied in the affirmative. “Whatever economic development India has achieved in Afghanistan, it is on our [Pakistan] border. India has several [four] consulates on our border and most of the investments they are doing is in the Pashtun area, along our border.”
The [Afghan] national security adviser told me we can exchange him for the terrorist you have, which is Kulbhushan Jadhav,” the foreign minister added.
He claimed there are about 66 militant groups operating in India of which only four were related to Pakistan. “The rest of them are India’s local terrorist organisations,” Asif said.
The spokesperson said Asif mentioned Jhadav while referring to anti-Pakistan activities in Afghanistan. “These include the launch of terrorist attacks in Pakistan with the help of TTP, Jamaatul Ahrar and Laskar-e-Jhangvi.
India’s offer to exchange notorious terrorist Kulbhoshan in exchange to APS killers is a clear confession of India to foment terrorism in Pakistan. It also shows that India is funding and controlling TTP terrorists from the Afghanistan.
The question is what a killer of APS children is doing in India and Afghanistan’s custody? And if they have apprehended this terrorist why they did not hang it? Did Afghanistan and India has taken him into custody for further terrorist activities in Pakistan? Also if such a brazen killer is in the custody of Pakistan and it has concrete evidences for this, Pakistan must approach to ICJ to bring him to Pakistan for exemplary punishment.
