Location of Dawood Ibrahim is not a secret: MEA slams Pak


New Delhi: Slamming Pakistan for exhibiting double standards on its action against terror, India on Thursday said that while the neighbour claims to have acted against Jamat-ul-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, he continues to deny presence of Dawood Ibrahim on its soil.

In a press briefing, Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar, said, “The location of Dawood Ibrahim is not a secret. Time and again we have been presenting to Pakistan a list of people who are in their country. We have asked repeatedly that he should be handed over. His imprint on the Mumbai blast is very clear for all of us to see.”

The statement by the ministry came after Pakistan’s foreign ministry denied Dawood’s presence in the country. Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Muhammad Faisal on Thursday said that Dawood Ibrahim is not in Pakistan.

“You [Pakistan] claim that you have taken action but when it comes to taking action against people who we have demanded you go into denial mode,” the MEA spokesperson said.

Raveesh Kumar accused Pakistan of trying to project to the international community that they are taking some action against the terrorists operating from the soil.

“This basically is a case of double standards, this is something where they stand completely exposed as far as their claims of taking action against terror groups in Pakistan is concerned,” he said.

Raveesh Kumar said India was not fooled by Pakistan’s ‘cosmetic action’ against JuD chief Hafiz Saeed in terror funding case.

“Let us not get fooled by such cosmetic steps. Pakistan’s sincerity to take action against terrorists and terror groups will be judged on the basis of their ability to demonstrate verifiable, credible and irreversible action against terror groups operating from their soil and not on the basis of half-hearted measures which they undertake sometimes to hoodwink the international community,” he said, adding that Indian wants “a normal relationship in an environment free from terror.”

Besides this, speaking on reports that verdict in Kulbhushan Jadhav case will be announced in a few weeks, he said: “Oral submissions have been made in the case. The verdict has to be announced by the International Court of Justice. The date has to be announced by them.”

Moreover, he also talked about Kartarpur Corridor, saying, “We had proposed a set of dates, Pakistan agreed they’ll come for dialogue on July 14. There are certain differences, we’ll discuss those issues. It’s important to emphasize it’s a matter of sentiment, it’s a matter of fulfilling wishes of Sikh community.”
