ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Thursday, June 30, demanded more evidence from India on the 26/11Mumbai terror attacks in order to bring the case to its “logical end”, the Foreign Office spokesperson said here.

“Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry has written a letter to concerned authorities across the border and has demanded further details regarding the evidence linking Pakistan to the attacks,” spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said, adding that “Islamabad would bring the Mumbai attacks case to its logical end.”

Zakaria said the response from the Indian side is still awaited. But the spokesperson did not elaborate when exactly the letter was written.

Pakistan had arrested seven Lashkar-e-Toiba linked terrorists, including presumed mastermind of the 26/11 attacks Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, for their role in the 2008 attacks in which 166 people were killed and over 350 injured.

Lakhvi, who is living at an undisclosed location in Pakistan, was released from jail on bail last year. The other six suspects are lodged in a Rawalpindi jail.

India has been urging Pakistan to complete the trial at the earliest. It has said that enough evidence has been shared with Islamabad to prosecute the accused.

However, Pakistani officials say India has not provided enough evidence needed to successfully complete the trial.

Responding to Indian Prime Ministers Narendra Modi’s interview to the TimesNow news channel, Zakariya said the civil and military leadership of Pakistan were on the same page.

“The Pakistani nation feels proud of its armed forces.”

Modi in his interview to the TV news channel earlier this week asserted that there were different types of forces operating in Pakistan and it was difficult to ascertain whom to engage in dialogue.

Meanwhile, the Foreign Office spokesperson said that the only way to resolve tensions between India and Pakistan was through dialogue. He stated that Islamabad was ready to hold dialogue with New Delhi.

“It has been said many times earlier that peace talks is the only way forward for relations between Pakistan and India,” he said. (IANS)

    Despite providing so much evidence, Pakistan has made their stand clear. They won’t fight terrorism, they will protect it!

  • Vrushali Mahajan

    Even the smallest of evidence should be enough to punish such people. Pakistan shouldn’t ask for what is not required.

As part of the partnership, WhatsApp and NASSCOM Foundation will train nearly 1,00,000 Indians to spot false information and provide tips and tricks to stay safe on WhatsApp.

The co-created curriculum, which includes real-world anecdote tools that can be used to verify a forwarded message and actions that users can take like reporting problematic content to fact checkers and other law enforcement agencies, will be disseminated in multiple regional languages.

“We are excited to expand our partnerships with civil society to advance crucial digital literacy skills that can help combat misinformation share on WhatsApp,” Abhijit Bose, Head of India, WhatsApp, said in a statement.

“This training educates people throughout India to be mindful of the messages they receive and to verify the facts before forwarding,” he added.

The training will be imparted by volunteers from NASSCOM Foundation who will launch the “each one teach three” campaign that mandates every volunteer to share their learnings with three more persons leading to a network effect.

These volunteers will post their takeaways from the workshops on their social media handles to increase the reach of these safety messages.

“The use of technology platforms like WhatsApp are inherently meant to foster social good, harmony, and collaboration, but are sadly being used by a small number of miscreants to entice anger and hatred by spreading false and doctored information,” Ashok Pamidi, CEO, NASSCOM Foundation, said.
