Pakistan should be isolated from the international community as a state supporting terrorist groups, Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Sunday in light of the recent attack on the army brigade headquarters in India's state of Jammu and Kashmir, that had killed at least 17 servicemen.

Indian Prime Minister Strongly Condemns Terrorist Attack on Army Base in Kashmir
NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — He did not, however, specify whether the terrorists were local militants or infiltrators across the India-Pakistan Line of Control.

"Pakistan is a terrorist state and it should be identified and isolated as such. I am deeply disappointed with Pakistan’s continued and direct support to terrorism and terrorist groups," Singh wrote in his Twitter account.

Four terrorists reportedly attacked the Army Brigade's headquarters in Kashmir's Uri at 5:30 a.m. local time (00:00 GMT). No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

The region of Kashmir has been disputed by India and Pakistan since the dissolution of British India and the establishment of the two states in 1947. Some local residents, most of them Muslims, especially those residing in the Kashmir Valley, call for greater autonomy or even independence from India.
