Delhi: Pakistan Federal Minister for Water and Power and Defence has been exposed by a journalist of his own country.

With tensions running high between India and Pakistan after the Uri terror attack, Khawaja M Asif had tweeted, "The defenders of our skies, in a state of constant readiness, Alhamdolillah. Our motorways are our runways."

However, Pakistani journalist Omar R Quraishi posted on micro-blogging site, "The picture of PAF jets on a highway going around on Twitter is actually US and South Korean jets in a mass display. So even our Defence Minister tweeted the picture showing PAF's readiness - the picture is of US and South Korean fighter jets."

Pak carrying out war crimes using terror as state policy: India

Meanwhile, in its sharpest attack on Pakistan, India on Thursday called it a "terrorist state" which carries out "war crimes" by using terrorism as an "instrument of state policy", after Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif glorified Hizbul commander Burhan Wani at the United Nations.

India also strongly rejected Sharif's call for "a serious and sustained" bilateral dialogue "without any conditions", saying that Pakistan, which "seems to be run by a war machine rather than a government", wants talks with a "gun in its hand".

Strongly reacting to Sharif's remarks at the UN General Assembly session, Minister of State for External Affairs MJ Akbar described them as full of "threat, bluster and complete disregard of facts" as he said glorification of Wani by him at the world forum is an act of "self-incrimination" by Pakistan.

He said it is "shocking" that a leader of a nation can "glorify a self-declared self-advertised terrorist" at a forum such as the United Nations General Assembly.

"We heard the glorification of a terrorist. Burhan Wani was a self-declared commander of the Hizbul Mujahideen, this organisation is widely acknowledged internationally as a terrorist group," Akbar said at a briefing to Indian reporters here responding to Sharif's General Debate address at the UN.

"This is self-incrimination by the Pakistan Prime Minister. We just heard a speech full of threat, bluster and what can only be described as rising immaturity and complete disregard of facts," he said.

In his nearly 20-minute speech, almost half of which was focussed on Kashmir, Sharif had hailed Wani - who was killed on July 8 by the Indian forces resulting in tensions in the Valley - as a "young leader" and the "symbol" of the Kashmiris' freedom movement.
