Javed Akhtar slams Pakistan’s Foreign Minister for demanding proof against JeM
The deadliest terror attack on February 14 in Jammu & Kashmir’s Pulwama left the entire country in a state of shock. The attack claimed the lives of around 40 CRPF personnel. Following the attack, Pakistan’s terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) claimed the responsibility and released a video of a suicide bomber, who carried out the attack.
The terror attack was extensively condemned by people from all walks of lives including Bollywood celebrities. Despite JeM taking up the responsibility of attacks, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has asked India to provide concrete evidence against Jaish-e-Mohammed’s chief Masood Azhar which can hold him accountable in Pakistan’s court.
Taking to the microblogging site Twitter, renowned lyricist, Javed Akhtar slammed Qureshi for demanding proof of JeM’s involvement in the attack.

Meanwhile, in an interview with foreign media, Qureshi seems to have admitted that the Pakistan government is in contact with the JeM’s leaders. He said that there was “confusion” and that the outfit had not claimed responsibility for the Pulwama terror attack.
