New Delhi, Nov 26 (ANI): Countries like Pakistan, and Iran should 'not be allowed' to use terrorists as proxies to promote their fanatic political aims, a spokesman of the Israeli embassy in New Delhi has said.
On being asked about a rally held in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir on Friday by hundreds of members of banned extremist and terror groups, including Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), against the government's move to normalize trade ties with India, David Goldfarb said: Countries who harbour terror are the biggest problems of the world today. You have it here in South Asia with Pakistan, we have in West Asia with Iran."
"Countries should not be able to support terrorists, to harbour terrorists, or to use terrorists as proxies, like we have in Iran, in order to promote fanatic political aims. This is what exactly India and Israel are facing. So, the international community should not allow this to happen" Goldfarb told to Asian News International (ANI).
The rally was held in the main square of PoK capital Muzaffarabad, where mostly members of the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), JeM, JuD and Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI), shouted slogans against the Pakistan government and India. They were joined by supporters of the main opposition Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) party.
JuD leader Abdul Aziz Alvi, who was detained by the Pakistani authorities for a short period of time following the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, expressed string disagreement over the decision of granting the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status to India.
Ajmal Kasab is the lone surviving attacker detained by India.
After three years, Indian External Affairs Minister SM Krishna today said that the country is still waiting for Pakistan to bring the perpetrators of the carnage to book. (ANI)
