Not speculating on Shinde remarks: Pakistan

Islamabad, Jan 25: Pakistan on Thursday evaded questions on Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde's recent remarks on 'Hindu terrorism' but reiterated its demand to be kept informed on the Samjhauta Express blast of 2007 that claimed over 40 Pakistani lives.

Asked whether Islamabad believed that India was home to terrorists who targetted Muslims in that country, a foreign office spokesperson said, the recent statements were taken seriously by Pakistan. He said as a responsible country, Pakistan did not want to get into a speculative mode but it also expected India to carry out its duties responsibly.

Referring to the Samjhauta blast, in which Indian investigators are said to have found involvement of some Hindutva forces, the official said, Islamabad always sought a thorough probe into the case and wanted the reports to be shared with it. He also said the culprits should be brought to law.
