Pakistan it seems leaves no opportunity unturned of backstabbing and betraying India whenever possible. Not only has it been encouraging terrorism in the region but has also been seen to be backing it instead of uprooting the menace.
The Special Investigation Team (SIT) set up by Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to investigate the deadly attack on India’s Air base in Pathankot has concluded that there is no substantive evidence suggesting JeM Chief Masood Azhar’s involvement in the attack.
The SIT has come out strongly and has maintained that Masood Azhar was not behind the Pathankot attack and has thus given him a clean chit. We can’t help but say that this again shows the lack of will the Pakistan authorities show to book these terrorists.
The SIT informed that the evidence provided by India was insufficient to implicate Maulana Masood Azhar. However, it has not denied the participation of some of the low cadre members of the JeM, which it says, it can be established once India shares the information it denied earlier when asked by Pakistan.
Pakistan NSA Nasser Khan Janjua told his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval that the SIT is ready to visit India but not much should be expected because the investigation has already been completed by them on the basis of leads provided by India.
The conclusion by SIT leaves many questions unanswered. Despite India giving strong evidences such as the Pakistani sim card from which the calls were made, shoe marks which showed boots manufactured in a Pakistan shoe company and the use of Army fatigues which is one of the attributes of the JeM style of attacking, Pakistan has blatantly said that there is no proof to nail Masood Azhar.
