Threatening call was not hoax: Sherry
ISLAMABAD—Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Sherry Rehman said it is impossible that a fake call is delivered to the president of Pakistan and no one can call the President of Pakistan directly.
She said that the number, from which the call was received on November 28, was confirmed number of Indian Foreign Ministry, adding all the phone calls at the President House are first verified and then transferred to president.
Sherry Rehman condemned India for wrongly exploiting media against Pakistan and denied any report regarding fake phone call. She said this propaganda war is being waged at a time when tension between Pakistan and India was high.
A man pretending to be India’s foreign minister called Pakistan’s president and talked in a “threatening” manner during the Mumbai terror attacks, prompting Pakistan to put its air force on high alert, a security official and a news report said Saturday.
