India To Pakistan-Here Is The Evidence-Act!

The Indian government for weeks has been engaging in rhetoric concerning terrorists who carried out the attacks on Mumbai, but it has finally decided to bring forth evidence to support its allegations. Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon turned over to Pakistani high commissioner, Shahid Malik evidence that Mumbai terrorists were trained in Pakistan and had connections with the Pakistan military in preparation for their attacks in India. Interrogation information extracted from the one captured Pakistani, Amir Kasab, reveal that “elements in Pakistan” provided assistance to the terrorists. Menon said a window of opportunity is now open for Pakistan to finally do something about ties between those “elements” and terrorism. Pakistan supposedly has promised to act with vigor in using the evidence to close down terrorist connections with members of the Pakistan military and secret service.

Hopefully, Pakistan will now begin sharing information with Indian authorities about what their investigation has uncovered. The main problem is that the infamous Pakistan secret intelligence service–ISI– is deeply linked with terrorism and it poses problems for any Pakistan government to do anything without causing turmoil within its own military.

India Asserts-Pakistan Denies Links To Terrorism

The Interior Ministry of Pakistan strongly denied there was any evidence of a link between a Lashkar-e-Tayyaba operative and the bombings in Mumbai. Although, India has the confession of the operative, the Pakistan government continues to insist no one from Pakistan had anything to do with the attacks in India. “We have no such information. We don’t accept that report.” An official of the Indian government said his country had been given information by the FBI that suggests such a linkage. According to Indian official Pranab Mukherjee, “We have been told that there is some strong evidence available to FBI and they have shared it with Pakistan.” However, Pakistan continues being in a state of denial.

Foreign mInistry spokesperson, Muhammad Sadiq insisted his government has not been provided concrete evidence from India about any linkage to his nation. He was also infuriated that anyone would dare suggest Pakistan’s secret service, the ISI was aiding terrorism. One can only conclude the Pakistan government is the only nation on planet Earth that is unaware of the ISI activities in sponsoring the creation of the Taliban and supporting terrorist attacks on India.
