Washington DC [USA], Feb 17 (ANI): The Balochistan National Congress (BNC), a US-based Baloch body, strongly condemned the Pulwama terror attack, carried out by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) outfit, in which around 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives.

In the deadliest attack on security forces in Kashmir, the CRPF convoy was attacked by a JeM suicide bomber in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on Srinagar-Jammu national highway on Thursday. Around 42 slainEejawans were in a bus, into which the suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden vehicle.

Underlining that the perpetrators behind the attack should be brought to justice, the BNC urged the Indian government to cut all diplomatic ties with Pakistan, recall the Indian ambassador from Islamabad and send back PakistanaACAOs ambassador from New Delhi immediately without any further delay.

aACoeThe perpetrators must be brought to justice. There should be no doubt that Pakistan was behind the attackaACA[yen], BNC President Wahid Baloch said in a statement.

The BNC suggested that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government should declare war against Pakistan, as Islamabad declared proxy war against New Delhi by carrying out terror activities.

"It is time to pay Pakistan back for their crimes against humanity and killing of innocent people," Baloch said.

Furthermore, the BNC asked the Indian government to help exiled Baloch leader Khan Kalat to set up the Government of Balochistan (GoB) in exile in India and help him to file a case against PakistanaACAOs "illegal occupation" of Balochistan in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague.

In the wake of the ghastly attack, India stripped the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status accorded to Pakistan and hiked basic customs duty on all goods imported from the neighbouring country to 200 per cent.

Reflecting the outrage in the country, Prime Minister Modi said that aACoethe blood of Indians is boilingaACA[yen] and issued a clear warning to Pakistan, declaring that the aACoeguardiansaACA[yen] of the perpetrators of the Pulwama terror attack will be aACoedefinitely punishedaACA[yen]. (ANI)
