The Indian Overseas Congress welcomes the withholding of U.S. funds from Pakistan as it has been accused of harboring terrorists. IOC has long held the view that Pakistan is not interested in rooting out terrorism but rather using it as an instrument of policy as well as leverage to siphon off funds from the United States. We agree with the White House sentiment that the time has come to call a spade a spade and demand Pakistan cease their nurturing of the terrorists in its backyard.
President Donald Trump has accused Pakistan of “lies and deceit” saying America was foolish to have given Islamabad more than $33 billion in aid. His New Year’s tweet comes in the aftermath of rising tensions between Washington and Islamabad since the summer when the U.S. announced his administration’s national strategy for Afghanistan.
India has long been a victim of this Pakistani duplicity, and the attack in Mumbai on 26/11 was carried out by terrorists who were trained in Pakistan.
