Chennai: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday attacked Pakistan on the issue of terrorism and its handling of restive Balochistan.
"Pakistan is facing the problem of terrorism to such an extent that while they push 10 jihadis into our side, there is a bomb blast that kills 70-80 people somewhere in Pakistan," he said at an event organised by Chinmaya Mission.
Earlier this week, a suicide bomber had targeted Quetta's Civil Hospital killing at least 70 people. Parrikar said Pakistan was the "only country to bomb its own citizens".
"While they talk about Kashmir, the way they deal with PoK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir) and Balochistan...it is the only country, which bombs its own citizens," he said.
On the ongoing Kashmir unrest, he said the youths in the state should be educated about their "historical, good things" and this could change a lot of things.
