Pak lawmakers condemn Gates for 26/11-attack statement

By Super Admin

Islamabad, Jan.22 (ANI) : Pakistani lawmakers, particularly from the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N), have condemned US Defense Secretary Robert Gates for his statement that it would be hard to prevent India from attacking Pakistan if 26/11-type terror attack is repeated in future.

Speaking in the National Assembly, PML-N Senator Raja Zafar-ul-Haq termed Gates's remarks as a conspiracy against Pakistan.

"In future international players or Indian separatist elements could carry out Mumbai-like attacks, which would provide India with an opportunity to blame Pakistan," The Nation quoted Haq, as saying.

The lawmakers urged the Government to raise the issue with Gates and compel him to retract.

Addressing the Lower House, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said Pakistan had time and again asked India to provide it with a dossier about elements involved in the Samjhota Express attack, but it had received no response.

"India itself would be responsible for any future incident if it continued the practice of not sharing information with Pakistan," Malik said. (ANI)
