India on Thursday charged Pakistan with "not following what it preaches" and asserted in crystal clear terms that Islamabad should firmly stop supporting terror and they have to stop supporting terrorist entities.

"It seems sometime they forget, what they preach they do not follow....And time and again we have told them to stop supporting terrorism and they have to stop supporting terrorist entities which are operating from Pakistan," MEA spokesman Raveesh Kumar told reporters here.

He said India's position on Pakistan remains very clear and consistent. MEA spokesman was asked about Pakistan government's recent comments on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Commenting on a recent report of UNHRC about human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir,MEA spokesman said, "India has rejected the UNHRC report on June 14 itself....it was fallacious and motivated and we also questioned the intention of bringing out this report".

"The document very clearly reflected the clear bias of an official who was acting without any mandate and who relied on unverified information," he said.

To a question on assault to a Sikh Pakistani cop in his country, the MEA spokesman said, "we strongly condemn the incident" - and maintained that "such a thing has not happened for the first time when religious minorities face problems in Pakistan".

He said there were reports of persecutions of other religious minorities in Pakistan in the past and cited an incident in Peshawar.

"One elderly person was killed (in Peshwar)," he said.

On these he said : "We will only urge Pakistan to probe these incidents honestly and also ensure that Pakistan respects the international obligation and protect the minorities in that country".

To a question on the NATO Summit and about India's role in Afghanistan, Mr Raveesh Kumar said that India would not like to advice anything to the NATO leadership.

"I think, combined they have lot of wisdom....," he said and asserted that India's position vis-a-vis Afghanistan is also clear.

"India's position is that it is for the government of Afganistan to lead the efforts...it should be Afghan controlled, Afghan-led and Afghan owned peace process," he said.
