Speaking his mind on terrorist Dawood Ibrahim, in the Parliament today, Home Minister Rajnath Singh reassured the citizens that the government would do everything in its power to bring the underworld don back to India.

The Home Minister also emphasised that Pakistan was bound by international obligations to locate and extradite Dawood, and said, “Pakistan was under international obligation to find him, as Interpol has already issued a Red Corner notice against him. Pakistan has been repeatedly requested by India to find him, but it has failed to do so. We will bring him back.”

“India has credible information about his presence in Pakistan. Despite overwhelming documentary and other evidence handed over to Pakistan, Pakistan has failed to locate Dawood Ibrahim and initiate legal process,” he further added.

Reiterating India’s commitment to bring back Dawood, Singh also said, “Whether we have to pursue Pakistan or pressurise it, we will not rest till Dawood Ibrahim is brought back, adding that India has maintained a continuous vigil on Pakistan over this issue.

The statement comes after minister of state for home affairs Haribhai Parthibhai Chaudhary, made the controversial remark, that Dawood Ibrahim was in Pakistan

Pakistan Exploits Situation In Jammu & Kashmir: India

India has accused Pakistan of cynically exploiting the situation in Jammu and Kashmir at the General Assembly while it was discussing an important issue.

“Such cynical attempts have failed in the past and do not find any resonance in this body,” Sandeep Kumar Bayyapu, a First Secretary in India’s UN Mission, said on Monday.

He was replying to a reference to Kashmir made by Pakistan’s Permanent Representative Maleeha Lodhi during a debate on the Right to Protect People against crimes against humanity.

“While we are having this serious debate for the first time in a decade on an issue that is of importance to all of us, we have witnessed that one delegation has, yet again, misused this platform to make an unwarranted reference to the situation in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir,” Bayyapu said.

“I would like to place on record and reiterate that the state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inalienable part of India. No amount of empty rhetoric from Pakistan will change this reality,” he added.

Lodhi had said that many of the victims of killings and “mass-blinding” are “in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir” and that they “have the further indignity of living under an illegal and alien occupation”.

“Against this backdrop, calls for accountability would invariably smack of double standards and selectivity, especially when egregious crimes including killings and mass-blinding are being committed in full view of the international community,” she said.

However, Lodhi also said: “At its core, the responsibility to protect, is not a license to intervene in external situations, but, is instead, a universal principle of ‘non-indifference’, in keeping with historical context and cultural norms of respective settings.”

“We should also be mindful that the notion of ‘Responsibility to Protect’ does not become a mere re-enactment of the discredited ‘humanitarian interventions’ of the past,” she added. (IANS)
