Ansar Burney blames vested interests for creating obstacles to Indo-Pak amity
Chandigarh, Oct 3 (ANI): Pakistani human rights activist Ansar Burney has blamed the vested interest of politicians of both India and Pakistan hampering normal ties between the two countries.
Burney, who was in Chandigarh to file a writ petition in the High Court to save 40 vessels which are still in the custody of Somali pirates, accused politicians of ignoring the interest of the people.
"Politics is always for their country, nation, and the people. But in these countries (India and Pakistan), they are doing their politics for their own personal benefits," he said.
He criticised Pakistan's growing proximity with China, saying that the former would benefit more if it improves ties with India.
"I will feel better to be a good friend of India before going to other countries. I would love to suggest (to the) Pakistan government to make a good friendship with India first, then go to China," he added.
Burney also said that it was corruption that fostered evils such as militancy, and said that he planned to launch a campaign against both corruption and militancy, once Pakistan emerges from the pangs of recent floods and life came back on track for the people.
He also slammed the U.S. for its recent criticism of Pakistan, accusing it of 'using' Pakistan in its fight against terrorism. (ANI)
