FO rejects Indian attempt to link Pakistanis detained in Sri Lanka with Easter blastsThe president affirmed that the people and government of Pakistan stand in complete solidarity with their Sri Lankan brethren. He said Pakistan condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. Reaffirming unwavering support to Sri Lanka, the president reiterated Pakistan’s offer of all possible assistance in its counter-terrorism measures.Meanwhile, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Faisal Wednesday completely rejected the irresponsible attempts by a section of Indian media to link detention of some Pakistanis in Sri Lanka with the recent incidents in Colombo. The spokesman, in a statement, said according to the information shared by Sri Lankan officials, seven Pakistanis were recently detained by the law enforcement authorities on account of overstay on their visas. “This is a purely consular matter and projecting it in any other manner is patently mischievous,” the spokesman said.He said such attempts by elements in the Indian media are reflective of a particular, though familiar mindset bent on twisting facts to malign Pakistan on any pretext. He drew attention to the call of the Sri Lankan leadership to avoid propagating unverified reports and speculation. A series of eight devastating bomb blasts had ripped through high-end hotels and churches holding Easter services in Sri Lanka, killing hundreds of people, including dozens of foreigners.Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had condemned the attacks – the worst act of violence since the end of Sri Lanka’s civil war a decade ago – as ‘cowardly’. The powerful blasts – six in quick succession and then two more hours later – had left hundreds injured and wrought devastation, including at the capital’s well-known St Anthony’s Shrine, a historic Catholic Church. At least two of the explosions were carried out by suicide bombers.
