ISLAMABAD: Defence Minister Khawaja Asif has said that India is trying to divert the attention of the international community from the Kashmir dispute.
In an interview, the defence minister said that the Indian government is making all efforts to shift the focus of the world community from Kashmir with false claims of surgical strikes against Pakistan and the attack on Uri military base.
He said that Indian atrocities against the people of Kashmir are on the rise adding that the country is violating basic human rights in the disputed territory.
He said that the neighboring country has resorted to escalate hostilities with Pakistan in order to shift the focus of world community from atrocities in occupied Kashmir.
