Pakistan’s resolution on Afzal Guru `highly improper`: India

India reacted sharply to resolution passed by Pakistan Parliament to condemn hanging of terrorist Afzal Guru, saying it was "highly improper" with Salman Khurshid asking Islamabad not to interfere.

New Delhi: India on Thursday reacted sharply to the resolution passed by Pakistan Parliament to condemn the hanging of terrorist Afzal Guru, saying it was "highly improper" with Foreign Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid tersely asking Islamabad not to dabble in internal matters of this country.
"They should address matters of their own country. They should let us address the matters of our country," Khurshid told reporters when asked about the resolution.

Trying to fish in troubled waters, Pakistan`s National Assembly today passed a resolution condemning the hanging of Parliament attack convict Guru and demanded the return of his body to his family.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath also said that India has taken the step to hang Guru as per its law.

"India, as a responsible country, is doing things constitutionally, and as per the law. For the Parliament of Pakistan to pass such a resolution is highly improper," he said.

The National Assembly or lower house of Pakistani Parliament today passed a resolution moved by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who heads a special parliamentary panel on Kashmir.

Besides condemning the hanging of Guru, the resolution expressed concern at the situation created in Jammu and Kashmir by the execution.

Guru was hanged and buried within Tihar Jail in Delhi on February 9.
