FM claimed India would attack if Abhinandan was not released: Ayaz Sadiq

LAHORE (Dunya News) - PML-N leader Sardar Ayaz Sadiq has claimed that Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi had said during a meeting that if Pakistan did not release Indian pilot Abhinandan, India would attack Pakistan at 9pm that night.

Speaking to Dunya News program "Nuqta-e-Nazar", Ayaz Sadiq said that he tries not to make any personal attacks but when those in power refer to us as thieves or ‘Modi ka yaar’, we will have to respond.

"These are not serious people," he said. They don’t even know the rules of parliament. Answering a question, he said that he had not met with Shehbaz Sharif in the past few days, however, if there is a meeting, it is nothing to hide.

On the statement he made earlier today in parliament, Ayaz Sadiq claimed that Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had said in an important meeting that if Indian pilot Abhinandan was not released, India would attack Pakistan that night. He claimed that the Foreign Minister had said this in a meeting between parliamentary leaders, including those of PPP and PML-N, and Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa.

Ayaz Sadiq said that the opposition has supported this government on every issue, including Kashmir and Abhinandan, but it will no longer be appropriate to provide any further support.
