Mumbai, Jan. 13 (ANI): A day after Afghanistan blamed the Pakistan Army for the attack on the Indian Consulate in Mazar-e-Sharif, the Shiv Sena on Wednesday backed the claims and alleged that the military runs the government in Islamabad.
“Earlier, only the Shiv Sena used to say this but now the whole world knows that the Pakistani Government is controlled by its military. The military runs entire government in that country and it is responsible for sheltering the terrorists,” Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande told ANI.
“The fact stated by the Afghanistan Police chief is confirmation to all these specifics,” she added.
Responding to a poser on the Foreign Secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan which looks in jeopardy in wake of the Pathankot terror attack, the Shiv Sena leader said ‘dialogue’ is the keys to solve disputes.
“Let’s see what comes out of these (Foreign) Secretary-level talks, which are scheduled at a time when former president of Pakistan Parvez Musharraf has stressed that attacks on Pakistan were not that major,” she added.
Pakistani military officers were behind the attack on the Indian consulate in Mazar-e-Sharif last week, a top Afghan police official said on Tuesday.
One Afghan policeman was killed and nine others, including three civilians, were wounded in the attack on January 4. (ANI)
