Pak has much to answer: Krishna on Headley disclosures
Dar es Salam: Lashkar operative David
Headley`s damning testimony on ISI`s links to the 2008 Mumbai
attacks leaves Pakistan with "much to answer" to the world,
External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said Thursday.
The Chicago trial of Pakistani-Canadian terror suspect
Tahawwur Rana and LeT operative Headley`s testimony in the
case have thrown up startling revelations over how the
powerful spy agency ISI directly handled the 26/11 attacks on
India`s financial capital.
"I think ISI and the government of Pakistan has so
much to answer, not only to India but to the international
community," Krishna said.
India has time and again raised the issue of action
against Mumbai attacks masterminds with Pakistan and Headley`s
claims have only buttressed India`s position that ISI was
linked to 2008 terror attack that left 166 people dead.
With fresh disclosures coming from Chicago, New Delhi
feels its worst fears have come true about Pakistan`s ISI
"working very closely" with terror outfits in that country and
being behind a sustained "hate campaign" against India.
Headley`s depositions in Mumbai terror attack trial in
a Chicago court have "confirmed our suspicions that ISI is not
only behind the 26/11 Mumbai attacks but is also actively
involved in a sustained hate campaign against India," Indian
government sources said.
"Pakistan has a lot to answer and these things cannot
be brushed under the carpet," the sources said.
Asked whether the fresh revelations would hamper the
Indo-Pak dialogue process, the sources said while one cannot
"gloss over the diabolical aspects", India would keep its
engagement going with Pakistan.
