Our intelligence agencies have done a wonderful job in nabbing the master handler of 26/11 genocide, Abu Jundal, after sustained efforts over a whole year. He has already spilt the beans during preliminary questioning that Pakistan is still very much engaged in anti-India operations. Continued interrogation will surely bring out more alarming facts and India should confront Pakistan with them to prove that they have been fully in the know of the planning and execution of the 26/11 massacre and also involved in the same. The farce of bilateral diplomatic exercises has to be terminated forthwith and all relations with them should be severed until they admit that the 10 who sneaked into our unguarded Budhawar Park were indeed their men. In the face of their deep-rooted hostility towards us, this is the only way to redeem some honour from the happenings of that 26/11 night that have shamed us for ever.

This refers to your editorial ‘Pak cannot say now evidence is not enough’ (ADC, June 26). There was never shortage of evidence but Pakistan consistently refused to accept it. Pakistant Govt had always been hand in glove with terrorists and by accepting the same they will not embarrass themselves. Onus of proving Pakistan Govt’s involvement solely lies with India and by arresting Abu Jindal, our security agencies have done a commendable job. Indian Govt will do well to pressurise Pakistan Govt by raising and taking this issue in international forum and expose Pakistan’s nefarious designs. India should press for declaring Pakistan as a ‘rogue State’ engaged in subversion, terror and killings of innocents. Better sense had eluded Pakistan Govt in the past as well and chances of soft options which India has been pursuing looks remote to succeed. Pakistan’s Govt seems to be playing right in the hands of terrorists and voice of reasoning will have no effect on them. Solution lies in isolation of Pakistan internationally and exposing them to the world community for their acts of terror.

The arrest of terrorist Abu Jundal, one of the main handlers of the 10 terrorists including Ajmal Kasab who hit the Mumbai city on the night of 26/11 and killed many innocent people will help in the investigation as he was present in the control room of the Karachi during the attack. The testimony of Jundal will provide crucial evidence confirming involvement of ISI hand in the terrorist attack and this will put more pressure on the Pakistan government to take action against the mastermind of the 26/11 terror plot. It is now clear that planning and execution behind the 26/11 was of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and in this context the arrest of Jundal is a major diplomatic victory for India and Pakistan must bear in mind that it has to co-operate in the investigation and has to take action against those who have masterminded the 26/11 attack. It is high time India continues to put pressure on Pakistan for the cooperation and keep its guard to thwart any LeT plots already in the works in the coming days.
