Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan Army gave a befitting response to unprovoked firing by Indian forces along the LoC, which reportedly inflicted a large number of casualties on them as their posts were targeted.

The minister in a statement cautioned that India can resort to a false flag operation to divert attention from ongoing protests against the controversial Citizenship Act in the neighbouring country.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has urged the international community to take notice of the Indian government’s dangerous steps which are playing havoc with peace in the region.

FM Qureshi said all minorities, particularly Muslims, in India have been protesting against the discriminatory citizenship law. He said he had informed UN Security Council about apprehensions and possible threats in his letter on 12th of this month.
