India slams Pakistan’s PM for not taking action over Kashmir attack

At least 40 paramilitary policemen were killed after a suicide bomber blew himself up near an Indian police convoy in Indian-controlled Kashmir on Thursday (February 14).

Jaish-e Mohammad, a militant group said to be based in Pakistan which wants the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir to be part of Pakistan, claimed responsibility but the Pakistani government has denied any involvement.

Indian foreign ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar said, ”we demand Pakistan to stop misleading the international community and take credible and visible action against the perpetrators of Pulwama terrorist attack.”

Pakistan’s foreign minister appealed to the U.N. Secretary General on Tuesday to help ease tension with India that has escalated sharply since the attack.

Muslim-majority Jammu and Kashmir, a former princely state on the border between both countries, has been in dispute since the partition of India in 1947. The neighbours have fought three wars since, two of them over Kashmir.

Control is split between the two countries but each claims the region in full.
