  • The Uri attack can be the reaction of the atrocities in Kashmir, as the close relatives and near and dear ones of those killed and blinded over the last two months were hurt and outraged,” Sharif told reporters

September 24, 2016: The terror attack on an Indian army camp in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir could be a backlash to the “atrocities” in Indian-administered Kashmir, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said.

“The Uri attack can be the reaction of the atrocities in Kashmir, as the close relatives and near and dear ones of those killed and blinded over the last two months were hurt and outraged,” Sharif told reporters in London on Friday, where he stopped on his way back from the UN General Assembly session in New York.

The Premier rejected the Indian allegations on the September 18 Uri attack as “irresponsible” and “without any evidence”. Eighteen Indian soldiers were killed in the terror attack, which India has blamed on Pakistan-based militants.

Sharif also wondered how India had hurled accusations against Pakistan only hours after the Uri incident without holding any inquiry or investigation.

“How could India accuse Pakistan only hours after the Uri incident without holding any inquiry or investigation. This is not reasonable,” Sharif was quoted as saying.

He said New Delhi should have held an inquiry and waited for the findings before pointing fingers at Islamabad.

He further alleged that “the whole world knows about Indian atrocities in Jammu and Kashmir”.

Talking about peace between the two countries, Nawaz deemed it “impossible without the resolution of Jammu and Kashmir dispute”, Pakistan Today reported. (IANS)
