No Change in Pakistan’s Denial Policy: Refused to hand Over 21 Most wanted Terrorist involved in Mumbai Attack:
Mr. Zaradri refused India’s request to hand over 21 terrorist involved in terror attack on Indian Financial capital Mumbai. US officials are in India to reduce tension between Pakistan and India, but my question is do any one really understand the pain and anger of people of India?
Zardari also waffled his way past a question about India’s demand for handing over 20 terrorists living in Pakistan, saying he was “definitely going to look into all the possibility of any proof that is given to us.”
“At the moment these are just names of individuals. No proof, no investigation, nothing has been brought to forward,” he said. Some of the names in the Indian list, notably Dawood Ibrahim, are Indian nationals convicted in Indian courts. Ibrahim lives in the same neighborhood in Karachi (Clifton) where Zardari has a home, according to past reports in the Pakistani media.
Asked if he would turn over the fugitives (including Indian nationals) if India provided the proof, Zardari fudged again just like his predecessor, saying, “If we had the proof, we would try them in our courts, we would try them in our land and we would sentence them.” Accounts in the Pakistani media reveal many of the fugitives and outlaws live under ISI protection and patronage.
I am just waiting for our government reply on this issue, as if now we all know that Pakistan has officially refused India’s request. Hope this time our government will stand makes a stand and provides us justice. We need action, we want answer. We not going to sit quite this time, we must make sure that we keep this issue alive till we get justice for all innocents killed by terrorist in Mumbai on 26th November 2008.
