India ready to help Pak remove terrorism
NEW DELHI (The Statesman/ANN) - Home Minister Rajnath Singh calls upon Pakistan to close its "factory of terrorism," saying it would help open vistas of development and peace.
After the global isolation Pakistan has been subjected to in recent months, India Home Minister Rajnath Singh added insult to injury by saying India is ready to help its neighbour eradicate terrorism from its soil if it felt it was not able to do so.
“We have nothing against the people of Pakistan. We are only against terrorism getting a free hand there. If Pakistan wants to eradicate terrorism and is not able to do so, tell us. We are willing to help you root out terrorism in your country,” Singh said at a function
Calling upon Pakistan to close down its ‘factory of terrorism’, he said, “this will open vistas of development and help in ensuring peace in South Asia.”
Referring to the recent surgical strikes at terrorist launch pads across the LoC, Singh said it was pre-emptive action against Pakistan and India does not have any ill-will against the people of the country. He said Pakistan has adopted terrorism as its state policy and is harbouring terrorists. That is the reason it has been isolated not only in South Asia, but also in the world.
Speaking during Regional Editors’ Conference in Chandigarh Tuesday, the Home Minister said border security is a sensitive issue and India is engaging all its neighbours except Pakistan diplomatically to ensure peace on the borders.
