New Delhi, India (June 06, 2013): It is learnt that Pakistan on June 06, 2013 rejected New Delhi’s allegation that its spy agency (ISI) was providing militancy training to the Sikh youth with a view to revive militancy in Punjab.
It is notable taht Indian home minister Sushilkumar Shinde had yesterday maintained that ISI agency was pressuring ‘Sikh militant’ leaders to target Punjab and other parts of India.
Pakistan’s foreign ministry spokesman Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry reportedly said: “Pakistan rejects those remarks accusing us and implicating one of our government agencies for fomenting terror in Indian Punjab”.
“Such a statement in our view is uncalled for and regrettable. We feel that making such statement has the potential of undermining the efforts made by both sides to normalise the relations between the two countries.”
It’s a routine practise of Indian agencies as well as government representatives to make these statements, mostly unfounded, in order to create an hostile atmosphere that could be used to curb Sikh political activism.
A political analyst told Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) that there had been a persistent policy under which these statements are made by the ministers or intelligence chiefs, so as to create a false impression of revival of militancy. This impression is used to justify the suppression of political activism of the struggling groups.
