Sayeed dares India to Myanmar-like op in Pak
“If India is comparing us with Myanmar, then they are mistaken. We know how to react to such a situation. We are capable of all kind of surgeries,” Sayeed said.
On June 9, a team of around 50 para-commandos of the Indian Army crossed into the Myanmar border and killed several insurgents, who were behind the killings of 18 Army jawans in Manipur on June 4.
After the Army was pressed into service, MoS for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore’s said that the action against militants in Myanmar was a message to countries “harbouring terror intent towards India”.
Responding to Rathore’s statement, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan had on June 10 warned India that Pakistan is not Myanmar, adding that those who were considering any kind of ‘adventure’ in the country will get a ‘befitting’ response. He had said: “India should not mistake Pakistan for Myanmar. Those who harbour bad intentions towards Pakistan should open their eyes and ears. The Pakistan Army is capable of responding to any adventurism.”
Two days after Khan’s statement, Sayeed spewed venom against India and challenged the country to commit such an act against Pakistan.
Sayeed was the mastermind of the 26/11 attack on Mumbai, in which more than 166 people lost their lives. The attack shook the entire nation and is touted as one of the most <g data-gr-id="44">well <g data-gr-id="45">co-ordinated</g></g> terror strikes in India. However, Sayeed has always distanced himself from the charges and that himself to be a member of social welfare group, working for the rights of Muslims across the world.
But the Indian agencies have submitted several <g data-gr-id="39">evidences</g>, which substantiate Sayeed’s involvement. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has even issued a red corner notice against him for his involvement in the 26/11 attack. The Indian government has also submitted a dossier – containing DNA <g data-gr-id="38">evidences</g>, photographs and other items found with the attackers – to Pakistan.
But despite repeated reminders and <g data-gr-id="36">evidences</g> against Sayeed, he is still free in Pakistan. Recently, he addressed a mass rally in Islamabad and alleged that India and US were destabilising Pakistan.
On Kashmir issue and NDA’s plan to rehabilitate Kashmiri pundits in the Valley, Sayeed said: “It is an integral part of Pakistan and we will continue to press our demand to liberate Kashmir. People in Kashmir will never leave in peace unless they get justice.”
He also demanded a stern action against those involved in the 2007 Samjhauta Express train blast, in which 68 people were killed – mostly Pakistanis.
