Jamali must change stand on terror: Advani

Syed Amin Jafri in Hyderabad | May 29, 2003 20:04 IST

Pakistan Prime Minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali must change his stand on terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, Deputy Prime Minister Lal Kishenchand Advani said in Hyderabad on Thursday.

Speaking at a Bharatiya Janata Party national-level meeting, Advani reiterated that not only J&K, but Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and the area handed over to China by Pakistan are an integral part of India.

India believes in 'friendship with Pakistan and simultaneously we are mounting Operation Sarp Vinash to crush terrorism on our soil', he said

He said India extended the hand of friendship to Pakistan on its own.

"No country can dictate to us or exert pressure on us. India's stand on Kashmir is very clear. We have defeated Pakistan in four wars in the past and we are also confident of defeating Pakistan in the proxy war waged by it. We have won the wars on our own and we will win this proxy war thrust on us without anyone's help.

"We have busted 175 Inter-Services Intelligence cells in the country so far. Those terrorists involved in attack on Parliament, the Akshardham temple, the Kaluchak massacre and the Haren Pandya murder case have either been caught or killed," he said.

There is no question of recognising the Line of Control as international border, Advani added.
