Former Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has blamed India for the terror attack on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda, northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province today. The Pakistani Taliban first took the responsibility for the attack in which 25 people were killed but later denied its involvement.
"We should not take the threat of India's defense ministry lightly. Indian agency RAW is behind the attack on Bacha Khan University. They have reached at an understanding with Tehrik-e-Taliban," Malik told a news channel.
"Jo Indian defence minister ne kaha...How dare he talk about us...hum kahte hain ki Bacha University unhone karwaya hai," Malik said.
"Jaish-e-Mohammad is not involved in attack on Pathankot air base and these attacks have been carried out by people from India. Indian intelligence agency RAW does not want that relations are improved between Pakistan and India. Whenever the Modi government has tried to hold talks, RAW has thwarted such moves," he added.
Last week, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had said that the country has run out of its capacity to tolerate acts of terror and that he, too, as the Defence Minister, can't tolerate it anymore.
"The nation has run out of its capacity to tolerate acts of terror and as a Defence Minister, I, too, have run out of it. So we will do something about it, you'll see," Parrikar had said in Jaipur.
Responding to a question about a Pakistani probe team's visit to Pathankot air base, Parrikar said, "I don't know. Without my permission, no one can come, I can guarantee."
