India turned on the heat on Pakistan after the Pulwama Attack on February 14 as the organization – Jaish E Mohammad (JeM) that claimed the responsibility of the Terror Attack is Pakistan Based.
India has intensified the efforts to isolate Pakistan on the international level. India will urge the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) an international monetary watchdog, to blacklist Pakistan. India had on Friday also revoked the MFN Status given to Pakistan.
Pakistan on Sunday denied its role in the Pulwama terror attack, saying that accusations were India’s tactics to put the blame on the neighbors for its security and intelligence failures. These knee-jerk and pre-conceived accusations were rejected also because they were made within a short time after the attack and without any investigations,” Mohammad Faisal, spokesperson of Ministry of Foreign Affairs Pakistan, tweeted on Sunday.
