The Kashmiri separatist leaders have been invited by the Pakistan High Commission here to meet Aziz, who will visit India to hold talks with National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, a move about which the government is clearly unhappy, sources said.

“Let’s see what happens (if they go ahead with the meeting with the separatists). The government will respond appropriately,” government sources said.

Asserting that there are some sections in the Pakistan establishment who want to “scuttle” the Indo-Pak talks and are ratcheting up anti-India activities thereby, pushing India to call off NSA-level talks scheduled for Sunday.

“The invitation should be seen as latest provocative move in that direction,” the sources said.

Hardline Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has been been invited to meet Aziz while other separatists leaders like Mirwaiz Umar Farooq were invited for the reception being held in Aziz’s honour by the Pakistan mission.

Last year, India had unilaterally called off Foreign Secretary-level talks after the Pakistan High Commissioner here had held “consultations” with the Kashmiri separatist leaders on the eve of the FS-level meeting.

    QUIXOTIC ORIGINAL RSS, DUPLICATE PAI OF USA, IS DUMB AND DEAF NOW.

    PEOPLE WHO LIKENED THEMSELVES WITH ISRAEL WHEN IN THE OPPOSITION, ARE NOW HAPPY TO BE LIKENED TO BURMA!

    SMILING JOKER CAN NOT WEAP. THAT IS THE TRAGEDY.

  2. Any self-respecting nation will immediately call off these talks and charge those Kashmeeri rats with treason for going against India’s national interests. The terrorist nation of Paakistaan is not at all sincere or honest in its handling of this situation. They have been mocking India for too long and India has miserably failed to show strength.

    I don’t expect anything from Sushma Swaraaja. She is an embarrassment. However, I expect a lot more from Doval-Parikkar-Modi team. They are known for their ‘desha prema’ and they understand the nature of enemy very well. If they fail to stand up to this rat-infested terrorist nation, I may have to change the title for ‘Pradhaana Sevaka’ to ‘Pradhaana Vidhooshaka’.

    @ Pincode Pai – Unlike you, I go by the values I believe in. My support is not party based. You will never acknowledge your inferior, weak position as long as you are held captive in local madrasa.
