New Delhi, Dec 8: Several persons have questioned the logic behind the talks between India and Pakistan when relations over the past few months had hit rock bottom. However, for the Indian government it was more important that the tensions ease out and they get back to the talking table.
During the talks that were held between the two National Security Advisors, India did make its point very clear and handed out a dossier that had been prepared a few months back.
India's NSA, Ajit Doval finally managed to hand over the dossier to his counterpart Nasser Khan Janjua at Bangkok when they met last Sunday.
The primary concern that India raises in the dossier is the Lashkar-e-Tayiba. It continues to operate with ease despite the world stating that it had staged the 26/11 attack.
Terror finance is a major concern
For India the manner in which groups such as the Lashkar-e-Tayiba raises its finances continues to be a primary concern. It has made it clear in the dossier that the Lashkar is being funded through the Jamaat-ud-Dawa headed by India's most wanted Hafiz Saeed. India also notes in this dossier that the JuD despite being banned raises finances with much ease.
Explaining how the JuD continues to operate, India states in this dossier that it changes its name to avoid the eye of the international agencies. India has said that the JuD has over the years used the name Falah-e-Insaniyat to dodge international agencies.
Speaking of the fund raising, India maintained that most of the funds were being generated so that the movement in Kashmir could be financed.
India has raised the concern of terrorists entering into Kashmir and staging terror strikes and this is a possibility because of the free flow of funds into Hafiz Saeed's "Charity" outfit.
Break down terror sanctuaries
India has also made a strong mention about the manner in which terror sanctuaries continue to operate in Pakistan. The recent arrests that were made in connection with the Udhampur attack is one such indication.
Quoting the case of Mohammad Naved, the terrorist arrested in connection with the Udhampur attack, India in its dossier also spells out the investigation details which clearly suggested that he was nurtured and launched from the terror sanctuaries in Pakistan.
Pakistan has to do more to dismantle such terror sanctuaries the dossier states. In a very direct message to Pakistan, India states that terror and talks would never go hand in hand. Pakistan would study this dossier now and decide on the next course of action.
Act on 26/11 case
A long standing demand by India has been the lack of action on the part of Pakistan where the 26/11 case is concerned. India states in the dossier that several years have passed now and it is time that those accused persons such as Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi are brought to justice.
Further the dossier also speaks about some elements in the ISI nurturing Sikh militants. India has constantly picked up chatter suggesting that the ISI proposes to launch Sikh militants into India. The dossier states that Pakistan should act on this aspect to ensure that there is peace and stability in the region.
