New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday said the warning issued by the US to Pakistan ahead of President Barack Obama's visit to India has exposed the real face of Pakistan to the world.
The BJP was reacting to the US warning Islamabad of 'consequences' if any incidents of cross border attacks are traced back to the Islamic Republic.
"This has been said keeping in mind the history of Pakistan. In March 2000, when [former US president] Bill Clinton had visited India, Pakistan had massacred 36 people in Anantnag. No such incident should occur. This exposes the real face of Pakistan internationally," BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told a news agency.
"America has... conveyed the message in a very subtle way, that if anything like this happens, then you [ Pakistan ] would not be spared," he added.
According to reports, the US issued the warning ahead of President Obama's visit of India later this week, where he shall be the chief guest at the Republic Day parade.
President Obama , who will become the first sitting US president to visit India twice in his tenure, will also become the first leader of his nation to attend the parade.
