New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday accused Pakistan of trying to destabilise India and said cross-border terrorist groups in Jammu and Kashmir egged youths to stone security forces.

"Not only the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the terrorists are trying to destabilise the whole country through their cowardice acts," Rajnath Singh said in the Lok Sabha.

"The whole country is aware of this act of Pakistan. Our security forces are responding to them the way it is needed," he added.

Singh's response came after Trinamool Congress member Saugata Roy raised the issue during Zero Hour.

Responding, Rajnath Singh said: "A new trend has begun in Kashmir. When our security forces go to villages in search of terrorists, the youths of the region start pelting stones on security forces.

"Such stone pelters are being misled by Pakistan-sponsored forces.

"Groups operating from Pakistan use Facebook and social media platforms to arrange these crowds," he said.

The minister appealed to the youths of Kashmir not to be misled by anti-national forces.
