Islamabad, May 11: Pakistan may extradite underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, if India provides 'authentuc proof' in this regard said Pak Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani. Also he said Pakistan will take action against any terrorist group operating against India from its soil. Gilani said his government could also consider India's request for access to terrorist leaders like Masood Azhar, who was released in return for safety of passengers of Indian Airlines plane hijacked to Kandahar in 1999, if it is backed by evidence.

Rejecting India's concerns over terrorism in Kashmir being financed and executed by Pakistan-based groups like Lashker-e-Taiba with the backing of the Inter-Services-Intelligence, he said "we are already working with the whole world for extremism and terrorism and our point of view is extremely clear that we are against terrorism and extremism".

"We have lost our own leader (former premier) Benazir Bhutto because of (terrorism). How can I deny that? At the same time, we are fighting against terrorism", Gilani told interviewer Karan Thapar on CNN-IBN's news channel's programme "Devil's Advocate".
