‘Baseless propaganda’: MEA on Pakistan’s claims of India orchestrating Lahore blast | India News

NEW DELHI: The ministry of external affairs on Thursday dismissed Pakistan’s accusation that India was behind the blast in Lahore near terrorist Hafiz Saeed‘s house.
The MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said it is not new for Pakistan to engage in “baseless propaganda” against India.
“Pakistan should focus on setting its house in order and take credible action against terrorism,” MEA spokesperson said on Pakistan’s claim that India is behind blast in Lahore.
He further said the global community is well aware of Pakistan’s credentials when it comes to terrorism.
A powerful car bomb outside the house of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack mastermind and chief of the banned Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) Hafiz Saeed in Lahore last month killed three people and injured 24 others.
Earlier this week, Pakistan accused India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) of orchestrating last month’s car bombing. Pakistan’s National security adviser (NSA) Dr Moeed Yousaf claimed that “the whole drama about some mysterious drones flying in Jammu and Kashmir” was a “deflection tactic” in the face of Pakistan gathering proof of the alleged Indian hand in the bombing.
“We have absolutely no doubt or reservation in informing you that the main mastermind of the attack is an Indian citizen, and he is associated with RAW,” Yousaf said at a joint presser with information minister Fawad Chaudhry and Punjab police chief Inam Ghani.
