No reason to distrust Pak: Rajnath on Pathankot probe

Greater Noida(UP), (PTI): India has no reason to distrust Pakistan’s assurance that it will take effective action on inputs given about the perpetrators of the Pathankot terror attack, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today.

“Pakistan government has said it will take effective action. I think we should wait,” Singh told reporters on the sidelines of a function here. Singh said since Pakistan has given the assurance to the Indian government, there should be no reason to disbelieve them so early.

“There is no reason to distrust (avishvaas) them (Pakistan) so early,” he said. After the attack, India had said it has provided to Pakistan actionable intelligence to act upon the perpetrators of the terrorist act.

During a post-attack telephonic conversation between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif, the government had said that “our Prime Minister very strongly urged the Prime Minister of Pakistan to take action.

“Actionable intelligence in regard to the terrorist attack and the links with the perpetrators in Pakistan were provided to the Pakistani side. The Pakistan Prime Minister promised us prompt and decisive action. We now wait that prompt and decisive action,” it had said.

Reports from Pakistan yesterday said law enforcement agencies have picked up “some suspects” connected to Pathankot airbase attack from Bahwalapur district, the hometown of Maulana Masood Azhar, chief of banned terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed.

India has identified Masood Azhar as mastermind of the attack. It also blamed his brother Rauf and five others for carrying out the attack that left all six terrorists and seven Indian soldiers dead on January 2.

It has provided telephone number in Pakistan contacted by the airbase attackers and given other inputs. India has called on Islamabad to act on the information if the Foreign Secretary-level talks are to take place as scheduled on 15 January.

  1. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today.”India has no reason to distrust Pakistan’s assurance that it will take effective action on inputs given about the perpetrators of the Pathankot terror attack”

    NOT EVEN A SINGLE INPUT PROVIDED BY MODI WOULD BE SUFFICIENT TO NAIL THE CULPRITS, BY ANY STANDARD OF LAW GOVERNING EVIDENCE.

    RSS WANTS PLOY TO JUSTIFY MODI’S FAILED GATECRASHING “SHOWBAAZY”!

    RSS DOES NOT KNOW THAT THEY SHOULD DEAL WITH THE PAK MILITARY AND NOT THE DUMMY CIVILIAN GOVERNMENT THERE.

    MODI IS FIT ONLY TO COMMIT THINGS HE COMMITTED IN POST GODHRA GUJARAT AND IS AN UTTAR MISFIT TO FIGHT ANY ENEMY IN THE WAR THEATRE. FIGHTING WITH ILLUSORY “HINDU VIRODHIS” IN THE SHAKHA, TWIRLING THE LATHI IN THE AIR, WHERE NOBODY IS THERE; AND FIGHTING A REAL ENEMY ARE ABSOLUTELY DIFFERENT BALL GAMES. HE THINKS BY GATECRASHING HIS OPPONENTS PRIVATE HOUSE TO GIVE SARI TO HIS MOTHER IS THE WAY TO DEAL WITH AN ENEMY WAGING WAR WITH INDIA FOR SIXTY YEARS AND MORE. HIS DELUSIONS AND ILLUSIONS PROVE THAT HE IS NOT A TEETOTALER, AS HE PRETENDS TO BE.

  2. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is not shivraj patil of the UPA government to resign due to terrorist attack. — and RSS has different yardstick.

  3. Nobody in the Modi government seems certain which minister is reponsible for securing the border and preventing infiltration and terrorist attacks. One day Ajit Doval makes a statement about Pakistan, the next day Manohar Parrikar makes a statement and another day Rajnath Singh makes a statement. Is the BJP govenment providing good governance or chaos and confusion?

  4. Dear readers,

    During ‘Gaurav Yatra’ CM aspirant Modi during Gujarat assembly election addressing Pakistan Premier “Miya Musharraf”.

    After he became PM of India ‘Happy birthday Nawaz bhai’.

    How can we expect from Defense minister who sought make in India ‘Andhra chilis’ and ‘terrorist’ to neutralize terrorist to safeguard the Indian border?

    They are more interested in ‘Bullet train’ than ‘Bullet proof jacket’ who can mint money from ‘coffin scams’.

    Other than blaming 60 years of Congress rule they have delivered ‘Jumla’ in 2 years.
