Pak ignored message on Kasab's execution

- November 21, 2012 - Updated 112 PKT - From Web Edition

NEW DELHI: Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Wednesday said that despite many attempts made by the government to get in touch with Pakistan over the execution of 26/11 convict Ajmal Kasab, India did not get any positive response. "We attempted to convey to Pakistan about the decision taken on Kasab. We tried to inform Pakistan Foreign Ministry through fax on the decision taken but it wasn't recognised," Khurshid said.


The Union Minister insisted that the hanging of Kasab was according to the Indian laws. "All legal options for an accused were made available to Kasab. All are equal before the law," he said. Khurshid said that it was well-established that Kasab was a Pakistan national and the Indian government did whatever it could under the rule of law. "If Pakistan or the family of Kasab came forward to claim his body, we will think what can be done. However, till now there has not been any such move by them," he said.

Khurshid also expressed hope that the way India allowed rule of law to prevail in the country, Pakistan would do the same. He, however, added that he did not know what position Pakistan would take on the issue.

I believe the Indian minister is telling the truth. We know how a bandith Zardari usually behave.

m. a
RAW planted so called 'Pakistani Terrorist' Ajmal Kassab was used to create another 9/11 scene in India, thus accusing Pakistan and attracting International reaction against Pakistan. Timely forceful warning of Pakistan Army for counetr reaction installed Indian attempt. Un-due prolonged trial of Kassab and full scale black propaganda, could't arrouse sympathies,instead Indians faced International humiliation and made themselves a laughing stock. Sorry Inian Pandits! try some thing else.

Kasab was not pakistani he was a sikh RAW agent.Kasab entered illegally in india but wanted to join bollywood,he was caught by polie while he was enjoying his Bhel-Puri at chowpatty beach in mumbai.Kasab was a business man who was arrested by indian zionist police from nepal and brought to india and all charges were framed against him.

India believes Pakistani establishment harbours LeT while Pakistan denies this. In this denial mode, I think Pakistan is gonna be all quiet on Kasab's issue.
