New Delhi [India], Oct. 6 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Thursday said that Pakistan Army and the ISI are promoting terrorism across border while keeping the civil society in dark.

Swamy said it is high time India initiates endeavours to bring other countries on board to label Pakistan as a terrorism promoting state.

"The fact of the matter is that terrorism has been propped up and promoted by both the ISI and army of Pakistan and the civil society is either kept in the dark or is being ignorant of what's happening or they were lying to protect themselves against the anger from the army," said Swamy.

"So, I think the whole world knows now and that it is now time for us to slowly start canvassing for various countries to support us in labelling Pakistan as a terrorist promoting state," he added.

Colonel Rajiv Saharan, the commanding officer of 30 Rashtriya Rifles, Handwara, earlier today confirmed that three Pakistani-based terrorists attacked the camp at Langate in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Three AK-47 rifles, two UBGL launchers, three GPS, four radio search, maps and metric sheet, and medicines were recovered from them.

When asked about how they identified the terrorists, Colonel Saharan said, "The medicines recovered have 'made in Pakistan' markings on them, this ascertains that these three terrorists were from Pakistan."

The attack comes days after terrorists attacked a Bolder Security Force (BSF) and adjoining camps in Baramulla district, where one BSF soldier was killed in the attack.

The attack also comes after the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes and destroyed seven terror launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) last week.

Last month, the terrorists had attacked the army brigade headquarters at Uri, killing 19 soldiers. (ANI)
