Imran Khan's appeal to PM Modi: 'Give Peace a Chance'
Imran Khan's re-attempt to hold dialogues with India on the issue of terrorism should be taken as an effort to defend the perpetrators as Pak has a history of taking 'no action' on terrorists and even it is known for giving them a safe heaven.
Islamabad: In a re-attempt to hold dialogues with India on 'terrorism', Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, on Monday, asked his counterpart Narendra Modi to 'give peace a chance'.
Imran reiterrated that he will take action if New Delhi provides Islamabad with "actionable intelligence" on the Pulwama attack.
Khan's statement came after PM Modi at a rally in Rajasthan said, "There is consensus in the entire world against terrorism. We are moving ahead with strength to punish the perpetrators of terrorism... The scores will be settled this time, settled for good...This is a changed India, this pain will not be tolerated...We know how to crush terrorism."
This should be taken as an effort to defend the perpetrators as Pak has a history of taking 'no action' on terrorists and even it is known for giving them a safe heaven.
Mr. Khan had earlier too said that he would act against those responsible for the Pulwama attack, carried out by Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed, if it shares "actionable intelligence" with Islamabad, but warned New Delhi against launching any retaliatory action.
Meanwhile, India take it as a lame excuse because JeM terrorist Adil had himself confessed that he launched attack on Indian Army convoy on Feb 14.
"It is a well-known fact that Jaish-e-Mohammed and its leader Masood Azhar are based in Pakistan. These should be sufficient proof for Pakistan to take action," the Ministry of External Affairs said.
