Stop using Mumbai attacks for propaganda: Pakistan to India

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan has asked India to stop using terrorist attacks in Mumbai for propaganda purposes, and it should also resolve the lingering Jammu Kashmir issue in accordance with the UN resolutions, a private TV channel reported on Thursday.
Speaking with journalists, Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said that India has a rigid stance on the issues of Kashmir and Siachen. He reiterated that Pakistan was serious in the investigations of the attacks in Mumbai.
To a question, the spokesman hoped that the Indian government would allow the judicial commission from Pakistan to visit India for the investigations. Pakistan was concerned over the continued drone attacks and hoped that the US would review its policy, he said.
Later, a Foreign Ministry statement stated that Pakistan would contest two US lawsuits that link one of its premier intelligence agency and its chief to the Mumbai attacks. It shows how sensitive Islamabad is to allegations that its intelligence services were involved in the assault in India.
The ministry said that Pakistan will fully and properly defend ISI Director General Ahmed Shuja Pasha against the accusations. Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has already said that General Pasha could not be made to testify in the New York civil lawsuits.
The plaintiffs include relatives of the attack’s victims. They seek financial damages. Experts say such cases rarely succeed beyond being symbolic. Several international defendants claim immunity or don’t bother to respond.
