Will bring 26/11 attack culprits to justice: Imran
New Delhi: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has vowed to bring the culprits behind Mumbai attacks to justice, if he is made Pakistan prime minister.
"India must understand the legal process takes time, but I will bring the Mumbai perpetrators to justice. We have to follow the rule of law," The Express Tribune quoted Khan, as saying.
Khan, who is currently in India to attend the World Economic Forum in Gurgaon, assured that as the prime minister, he would ensure that terrorism does not stem from the Pakistani soil.
Commenting on Pakistan`s relationship with India, he said he was "in favour of a new relationship."
"All these years we have had a relationship which was detrimental to the entire subcontinent. We moved one step forward, two steps backward. Mumbai came (and) we were back to square one," Khan said.
Khan urged that there was a need for leadership of both countries to take on vested interests. He said young people "were tired of the continuing hostility between the two countries".
Commenting on the Kashmir issue, he said that a military solution could not help resolve the issue and said that as the Pakistani premier, he would take the peace initiative.
"It can be resolved. I will work on a road map by making people from India, Pakistan and Kashmiris look for a solution by sitting on a table," he said.
He added: "India is using troops in Kashmir. They are losing the battle of heart and minds. It`s like treating cancer with disprin."
Khan also said that terror leaders in Pakistan can be "transformed."
"I am sure they can be put into nation building, human beings can change. I will make them realise that militancy is not a solution," Khan was quoted, as saying.
