New Delhi, India on Wednesday lashed out at Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for 'Kashmir' reference in Kartarpur speech and urged Islamabad to "fulfill its international obligations" and stop supporting 'cross border terrorism'. "It is deeply regrettable that the Prime Minister of Pakistan chose to politicise the pious occasion meant to realise the long pending demand of the Sikh community to develop a Kartarpur corridor by making unwarranted reference to Jammu and Kashmir which is an integral and inalienable part of India," MEA spokesman Raveesh Kumar said in reply to a question. "Pakistan is reminded that it must fulfill its international obligations and take effective and credible action to stop providing shelter and all kind of support to cross border terrorism from territories under its control," he said. Indian government sees Pakistan's stance on Jammu and Kashmir as 'interference' in the internal matters of India. In his speech at Kartarpur function, Imran Khan said: "The only issue between India and Pakistan is Kashmir" and maintained while "Human race has reached moon. Tell me what is the issue that human beings cannot solve. Can't India and Pakistan resolve one issue (Kashmir)". Two Union Ministers Harsimrat Kaur Badal and Hardeep Singh Puri - two Sikh cabinet ministers in the Narendra Modi government and Punjab Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu was also present on the occasion of laying the foundation stone for Kartarpur Corridor.
