A suicide auto bombing by Pakistan-based militants in Indian-controlled Kashmir killed at least 40 Indian paramilitary police on Feb 14 and the risk of conflict rose dramatically on Feb 27, when India launched an air strike on what it said was a militant training base.
"An incident similar to Pulwama could recur in the occupied Kashmir valley", he had said, adding the goal of this sinister plan was to build diplomatic pressure on Pakistan and justify Indian military action.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan asserted again Saturday that his Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi, and his ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are "whipping up war hysteria and false claims" to try to win the upcoming elections in India.
India added that Pakistan has been advised to use established diplomatic and DGMO channels to share any actionable and credible intelligence it has about imminent terror attacks and warned that it reserves the right to respond firmly and decisively to any cross border terrorist attack.
The vehicle bombing triggered a violent reaction from India, which on February 27 launched an air strike on what it said was a training base of the group.
He reiterated that Pakistan took necessary steps to reduce tension with India after Pulwama attack in which 40 Indian paramilitary personnel were killed.
"Fear of war has not yet dissipated", Qureshi said, as he called on the United Nations and the worldwide community to play their role in maintaining peace and stability in the region.
The Indian air force had displayed pieces of a missile that it said was sacked by a Pakistani F-16 before it was downed.

The family of the deceased journalist could also grant clemency to the killers if convicted as the Saudi justice system allows it. It is unclear whether Khashoggi's children would be required to forgive or absolve the killers to collect the payments.
Addressing a news conference in Multan earlier, FM Qureshi said there is "reliable intelligence that India is readying for another act of aggression" against Pakistan.
But worldwide diplomacy and Pakistan's decision to release the pilot to India two days later effectively defused the threat. "According to our information, the action could be taken between April 16-20", the paper quoted Qureshi as saying.
The Indian Army retaliated effectively, he added.
He said the ambassadors of the permanent members of the UN Security Council in Islamabad had been informed about "the plan" two days ago.
"The global community must take notice of India's irresponsible acts of aggression", he maintained, adding that Pakistan is once again offering dialogue to India for prosperity and stability between both countries.
The Ministry of External Affairs did not issue an official response, but sources said Pakistan was trying to create war hysteria.
Pakistan warned Sunday that rival India is planning to launch a fresh military assault against the country, calling for the global community's urgent diplomatic intervention to deter New Delhi from endangering regional peace and stability.
Later on Sunday, the Foreign Office summoned the Indian deputy high commissioner and handed him a demarche to convey Islamabad's objections.
