New Delhi [India], Oct. 30 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former home secretary R.K. Singh on Sunday said Islamabad is being isolated globally as the entire world knows that Pakistan is the centre of terrorism.

"Wherever terrorist attacks have taken place in the world, it has been somehow linked with Pakistan. Pakistan has become the centre of terrorism in the world and now the entire world has started understanding it," Singh told ANI.

Condemning the incident in Machhal sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara district where an Indian soldier's body was mutilated, he said the action reflects Pakistan's brutality.

"They are distracted from the surgical strike carried out by us. The ceasefire violation is a result of that distraction. They always violate ceasefire but every time a befitting reply has been given to them by our soldiers," he said.

The BJP leader's reaction came as the nation bid adieu to Kupwara braveheart Mandeep Singh, who was killed in an encounter near the Line of Control (LoC) on Friday.
