Pak losing ground on insufficient 26/11 evidence claim: Report

September 07, 2009 16:31 IST
Even as Pakistan continues to claim that India has not provided enough evidence in the Mumbai terror attack case, Interpol has suggested otherwise by issuing an arrest warrant against Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed.

The world agrees with India that Pakistan is not showing seriousness in the matter of punishing the perpetrators of the 26/11, the Daily Times reports.

And Interpol's arrest warrant is the latest proof of the fact that Pakistan is losing ground.

Does it mean that the evidence Pakistan considers inadequate has been accepted as valid by Interpol, the report questions.

In this case, Interpol seems to have agreed with India on the definition of 'what is credible evidence?'

Meanwhile, Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has said, "A delay in the resumption of Indo-Pak talks will only benefit the terrorists."

However, Indian Foreign Minister S M Krishna has said that Pakistan must "satisfy" India first by taking action against the terrorists it has caught.

The paper notes, "Let us not kid ourselves that the terrorists' gain because of lack of dialogue will be equally harmful to India and Pakistan."

"All in all, any balanced assessment would be that Pakistan may lose more if the dialogue with India doesn't resume on a new basis," the report concludes.
