Pakistan's former minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif justified the Pulwama attack in Pakistan Parliament on Friday and called it an 'act of revenge' and not that of terrorism. A minister in the former Nawaz Sharif Cabinet, Khawaja had on Thursday taken to social media to say, "Kashmiri struggle is for Azadi, their right of self-determination endorsed by UN, denied by Indians for 70 years."

"Kashmiri struggle is for Azadi,their right of self determination endorsed by UN, denied by Indians for 70yrs.Branding Kashmiris terrorists is an outrage, freedom is their birthright. Pulwama is natural &rightful reaction to brutal indian occupation of Kashmir (sic)," tweeted Khawaja. 

Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed had claimed responsibility of the attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama on February 14 that had killed 40 personnel.
