KARACHI: Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that concrete evidence of Indian interference in Pakistan has been provided to the Foreign Office which will take it up at an appropriate forum.

He told a press conference after meeting ulema of different schools of thought here on Monday that the issue would be taken up forcefully whenever composite dialogue with India resumed and the proof would be shared with the international community.

He said arms and terrorists were entering Pakistan from Afghanistan and the matter had been taken up with President Hamid Karzai.

Mr Malik said no one could be allowed to use Pakistan’s soil for terrorism.

The interior minister said all ulema had termed acts of terrorism and suicide attacks ‘Haram’ and declared that funeral prayers of suicide attackers were not justified.

He said all ulema were united against terrorism and had offered 10,000 volunteers to the government.

The minister thanked the ulema, but said the armed forces were performing their duty very well and with responsibility.

“I have been given the task to meet ulema and will hold similar meetings in Lahore, Peshawar and Quetta,” Mr Malik added.

He said an international conference of religious scholars would also be held.

In reply to a question, he said a national anti-terror command and a think-tank had been set up three months ago and an anti-terrorism policy was being prepared.

He said three biometric checkpoints had been set up on the border with Afghanistan.

In reply to a question, he said detained US suspect David Headley was born in Pakistan but had left the country in his childhood and was educated in US. If he had committed an unlawful act, action should be taken against him under US laws, he said.

If he had any contacts in Pakistan, the government should be informed and it was prepared to extend full cooperation to the United States, he said.

Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah also attended the meeting with ulema.

Mufti Muneebur Rehman, chief of the Ruet-i-Hilal Committee, said the meeting had condemned terrorism and suicide attacks, terming them against Islam and Pakistan.

According to a declaration, the ulema suggested that heirs of martyrs should be taken care of and arrangements made for rehabilitation of people affected by terrorism. The armed forces were assured that the entire nation was behind them in their efforts for ensuring security of the country.

Mufti Muneeb said all ulema had pledged to maintain law and order during Muharram and keep vigil on terrorists and extremist elements.

The chief minister also presided over a meeting that reviewed arrangements for Muharram.

Even the Pakistani's don't take him seriously. the variation of this staement hsa been made countless number of times after every terrorist incident.

We in India had a HM who used to change clothes with regularity after every terrorist attack and this gentleman isuues pointless staements that are not backed by his own Govt.

Rehman Malik is a buffoon, he doesn't even know what he is talking about. One day he says, evidence has been submitted to India, then to US and now he says he is submitting evidence to foreign office. A complete joker this fellow.

This interior minister of Pakistan is a looser. Every time a bomb explodes in Pakistan he keeps the public reminding that evidence of Indian involvement is given to foreign Ministry.

Whereas the Prime Minster of Pakistan says evidence will be shared with international community at appropriate time. May be ISI is taking time to fabricate some new story and plant evidence.

first it was their military spokesperson a major general who said the so called evidence has been handed over to the foreign office and if i am not wrong that was said some thing like a month back and now this.

for a change can this whole world know what is the so called proof that the pakistanis keep blabbering about every now and then, enough of rhetoric, time to show, or else it just seems a way of deviating from 26/11 where pakistan and its nationals were caught with their pants down, as has been done so many times in the past by pakistan.

Now the joker is saying this :rofl:

Evidence of Indian involvement at dialogue table: Malik

Updated at: 1905 PST, Monday, December 07, 2009

KARACHI: Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Monday that evidence of Indian involvement in Pakistan has been handed over to the foreign ministry in Islamabad.

Speaking to the media after meeting with clerics at the CM House here, Malik said the evidence of Indian involvement in Pakistan will be shared with New Delhi during composite dialogue between the two countries.

The minister said arms and ammunitions smuggled into the country from Afghanistan were being used in terrorist activities in Pakistan. He said he was in talks with US and Afghan authorities in this connection and a mechanism is being put in place to stop the arms smuggling.

He stressed the need of ending cross border infiltration between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Malik said the army defends the country’s borders while the Ulema are the guardians of country’s ideology.

“On the instruction of President and Prime Minister, I have come to Karachi to seek guidance of Ulema against the militancy,” Rehman said.

To a question, he said that David Headley was born in Pakistan but was raised and studied in the United States. He should be tried according to the American law, said Rehman, adding if there was any evidence suggesting his links in Pakistan then it should be shared with us.

By saying that the evidence will be given to India during composite dialogue, he is showing hollowness in their (non-existent) evidence as he clearly knows that there will be no composite dialogue in near future unless pakistan acts on 26/11 perpetrators. He will keep on barking about evidence but will never give it to India or put in front of international community.

everytime they are given evidence, the only thing they do is erase the footprints or evict the culprits to a safer place and then feign innocence. this was the routine that was happening with 'anti - terror' mechanism they were having with india.
so sure the US will give them the evidence!!

Seriously what are they waiting for. My suspicion is that they are trying to cook up the evidence.

Seriously what are they waiting for. My suspicion is that they are trying to cook up the evidence.
I recently had the opportunity to attend a lecture/conference with many high profile guest speakers (including Christine Fair), and during Q&A, I asked the panelists... why doesn't the international community just step in and assist Pakistan with their investigation? Because this would address many issues all at once...
  1. To validate the evidence through a greater amount of resources
  2. If India is promoting an armed insurgency into Pakistan then it needs to be addressed ASAP at a high multinational level (after all, many countries have a stake in Afghanistan which India would be compromising) and most of all India's supposed insurgency would be a death knell to our Afghan conundrum which is hanging by a string
  3. If India is found not to have an involvement, then Pakistan's can be pressured to do troop movements or whatever is needed to actually handle the principal problem.
  4. To reduce the impact of the growing mass schizophrenia in Pakistan (very dangerous long term)
  5. To prevent fabrication of evidence.
  6. To prevent the outfall (time, money, political leverage etc.) in the event of fabricated evidence etc.

They didn't answer my question directly, but basically alluded to the fact that the international community (headed by the US of course) simply wasn't interested in any of this and don't feel the need to divert any resources to it. There are however a couple of interesting factors at play here...
  1. The bulk of this "evidence" is being harvested from areas which are not really accessible to India. The borders along the specific regions are clearly controlled by either the Afghan Taliban or in a couple of cases Al Qaida.
  2. The evidence is turning up in areas that are entirely off limits to all foreigners, and that one WSJ journalist who tried was declared a spy for the CIA and Mossad and deported.
  3. The US has already had it with the conspiracy theories and propaganda (primarily anti-US sentiment, not anti India conspiracies) that is meticulously planned and planted by the government through the media. (Except for one outburst from Mervin Weinbaum (MEI), everyone else was reluctant to divulge the details of their displeasure).

Interior Ministry’s evidence against India not enough, says Qureshi

MULTAN/ISLAMABAD: Foreign involvement in the unrest in Pakistan cannot be ruled out but more information is needed to plausibly argue the country’s point of view on the issue of Indian involvement, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said on Wednesday.
“The possibility that there are elements who want to destabilise the country cannot be ruled out. But information received by us in this regard, is insufficient. We need more information and material to plausibly argue our case,” Qureshi told reporters. Earlier, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said evidence of India’s involvement in destabilising Pakistan had been handed over to the Foreign Office.
“Pakistan has concrete evidence of India’s involvement in fomenting unrest in Pakistan and the evidence has been provided to the Foreign Office to take it up with New Delhi,” Malik told reporters at the Parliament House. staff report/app

Islamabad. Dec.10 : Rejecting Interior Minister Rehman Malik's claims about having 'concrete evidence' regarding India's involvement in terror activities inside the country, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood has said that evidence against New Delhi is not enough.

Talking to reporters here, Qureshi said that while involvement of foreign hands can not be ruled out, more evidence is needed to 'plausibly argue' that India is involved in fanning insurgency inside Pakistan.

"The possibility that there are elements who want to destabilise the country cannot be ruled out. But information received by us in this regard, is insufficient. We need more information and material to plausibly argue our case," The Daily Times quoted Qureshi, as saying.

Earlier, Malik had claimed that the Interior Ministry has substantial proof against India, and that it has been handed over to the Foreign Office.

"Pakistan has concrete evidence of India's involvement in fomenting unrest in Pakistan and the evidence has been provided to the Foreign Office to take it up with New Delhi," Malik had told mediapersons on Wednesday.
