【Pathankot】Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad, headed by Maulana Masood Azhar, has uploaded an audio clip on a website making startling disclosures about how terrorists attacked the Pathankot airbase on January 2. The clip has been uploaded on the website www.alqalamionline.com.
The 13-minute address has also been transcribed in a local Urdu magazine in Azhar's hometown Bahawalpur. At several places the clip talks about how the men "fired at Indian tanks, military cars and helicopters." The speaker warns the Pakistan government not to accept Indian evidence. "Pakistan ke ilaam India ke ilzaam ke saamne kyon jhukte hein? Kyon sharmate hein? (Why do Pakistan's leaders bow before India's allegations? Why do they shame us?)," he asks.
