The Indian film fraternity has accorded with the country and the government in its fight against state-sponsored terrorism in Pakistan.
Speaking over the issue, Bollywood senior actor Rishi Kapoor in a tweet agreeing with Union Minister Arun Jaitley has said that Pakistan should join hands with India against terror outfits.
His tweet read: "If Pakistan truly wants to root out terrorism as they say so,they should join hands with India to do so. We and you have nothing against our respective civilians. If Imran cannot, Pakistan Army or ISI should do it. Think!"
Union Minister in an interview to a media channel said that this war is not against Pakistan or its defence, and if Imran Khan is saying that he is against terrorism, he should welcome India's action of conducting air-strikes on terror outfits, who refuse to listen to Pakistan.
Responding to the Bollywood actor's suggestion, another actor and Parlimentarian of India responded saying, 'Even if Imran Khan wishes, he cannot because of Pak Army and ISI'
Although in India the sentiment to counter terrorism is brimming, Pakistan's talk to 'peace' and their 'anti-terror' narrative seems to be a facade.
Here's the proof:
Pakistan has blocked the visa requests of the United Nations team that was supposed to visit the country to interview 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed.
According to sources that confirmed Pakistan’s latest duplicity in the Hafiz Saeed case, it was fearful that Saeed would voluntarily reveal more incriminating evidence against it and their support to various terror organisations operating from its soil, therefore, Pakistan blocked a face-to-face interview of Hafiz Saeed by the UN officials.
Furthermore, the country in the guise of a sham has extended state protection o 26/11 Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed's Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF), with the police placing itself outside the heavily fortified complex.
Pakistan's Foreign Minister in two international interviews admitted that Pakistan is not only aware of Masood Azhar's whereabouts, but also in touch with UN-designated terror group, Jaish-e-Mohammed. Furthermore, went ahead to defend the terror organisation, refusing to hold them responsible for the ghastly Pulwama terror attack.
