Attari: Home Minister P Chidambaram on Friday
parried a question on Pakistan`s claim that there was no proof
against LeT founder Hafiz Saeed`s involvement in terrorist
activities in India, saying issues of disagreement should not
be discussed on happy occasions.
After inaugurating a modern Integrated Check Post (ICP)
along the India-Pakistan border here, a Pakistani journalist
asked Chidambaram why the issue of Saeed should not be put to
rest as there was no proof against him, the Home Minister said
"Today is a happy occasion. We talk about matters of agreement
and not about matter of disagreement".
"I take note of your question and I will send you my
answer in writing," he told the reporter.
Saeed is one of the most wanted persons in India for his
involvement in various terrorist acts in the country,
including 26/11 Mumbai terror attack which claimed 166 lives.
