Islamabad: Pakistan has "solid evidence"
of India’s alleged involvement in fomenting unrest in
Balochistan province and the government is taking up this
matter diplomatically with its Indian counterpart, Interior
Minister Rehman Malik claimed on Friday.

Malik made the remarks while talking to the
media at parliament.
"We are not levelling mere allegations against India
but we have solid evidence of Indian involvement in
Balochistan. The weapons recovered from various areas were
Indian-made," he alleged.

Afghanistan`s soil is being used to destabilise
Balochistan and President Hamid Karzai, who visited Pakistan
this week, has given a commitment that Afghan soil will not be
used against Pakistan, he said.

The Indian government has denied allegations by
Pakistani leaders that it is behind the unrest in Pakistan.

Replying to a question, Malik said no targeted
killings were being carried out in Karachi but there was a
"conspiracy to pitch religious groups against each other".
He warned banned sectarian groups not to mar the
peaceful atmosphere of Karachi, saying stern action would be
taken against them.

Lauding efforts by clerics of different schools of
thought to foil the "conspiracy" hatched by anti-state
elements, he said, "We have intelligence information that
money has been disbursed to pitch religious groups against one
other."
