An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Give us proof to nail Hafiz Saeed: Gilani

Pakistan prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani denied Indian accusations that his government was dragging its feet on booking the prime accused of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, saying the alleged chief architect Hafiz Saeed was very much on trial and the court had to decide when to order his arrest.

But Gilani also reiterated what Islamabad has long used as a shield for inaction, even in the face of credible information on terror groups being supplied by Washington — that India was not giving it enough information to act against Saeed.

Gilani said Pakistan’s judiciary had to take a call on Saeed’s arrest. “We need more evidence to (take) him to task,” he told CNN-IBN in his first interview to Indian media after 26/11.

Pakistani investigators provided a shot in the arm to the probe when they presented a report before a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court, saying there was sufficient incriminating evidence against seven terrorists, including Lashkar-e-Taiba’s operational chief Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, facing trial for orchestrating the Mumbai attacks.

    I don’t know but there comes a time when such blatant support to terrorism becomes nauseating.

    I remember after 9-11 that Pakistan had announced that if they were attacked, they would hit India instead with Nukes. I feel it is time that India announces – and Chidambaram came close to that – that if any attack happened in India, India would unleash a Nuke attack on Pakistan rightaway! Any terrorist attack on India will be regarded as declaration of war from Pakistan. Let the world have sleepless nights! Enough is Enough!
