New Delhi [India], Dec. 30(ANI): The Ministry of External Affairs on Friday called the statement given by Pakistan's Foreign Affairs Ministry labeling Indian Bonafide political parties as terrorist organization as absurd.

"The Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs statement of yesterday is absurd even by their standards. Labelling Indian bonafide political parties, social, cultural organisation as terrorist organisation seems a desperate attempt to deflect international focus from Pakistan's own complicity in sponsoring internationally prescribed organisation like Lashkar-e-taiba, Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Jaish e Mohammad which continue to target Pakistan's neighbours from territory under Pakistan's control," Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup told ANI here.

Earlier on December 29, spokesperson of Pakistan's Ministry of External Affairs on called the Indian political parties like RSS, Vishwa Hindu Prasad, Shiv Sena, Bajrang Dal as terrorist element.

"Occupying forces, joined by the terrorist organizations such as RSS, Vishwa Hindu Prasad, Shiv Sena, Bajrang Dal and other terrorist elements are engaged in the drive to change the demography in Kashmir, which is a blatant violation of UN Security Council's Resolutions on Kashmir and fundamental human rights. We condemn unabated violation of UNSC Resolutions on Kashmir by India," according to the statement by the Pakistan Foreign Affairs office. (ANI)
