But the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan has demanded that New Delhi [ Images ] hand over the body to Pakistan.
The Taliban [ Images ] believe that the Pakistan government should take steps to bring its citizen's body back to the country.
"First the government should seek the retrieval of his body. If Islamabad [ Images ] does not ask, then we demand that New Delhi send back the body. If the body is still not handed over, the TTP can go to any extent to compel India to do that," Ihsan added.
Earlier, in another message, Ihsan had said, "If Kasab was a true mujahid, if he had undertaken the attack under the true sense of Islamic jihad, then we pay homage to him. But if he was used by intelligence agencies, then he is not a mujahid. In case he was used, then Allah will decide his case on doomsday and we can't say anything."
On the other hand, Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik [ Images ] has said that the relatives of Kasab have not formally requested for his body.
"The government will take up the issue with the Indian government if a formal request comes from his relatives in this regard," Malik told media personnel in Islamabad.
Pakistani human rights activist Ansaar Burney believes that it is the right of each and every family to seek the body of a deceased member.
"The parents may feel threatened (if Kasab's body is brought back to Pakistan), but it is his national and traditional right to be buried in his native country," said Burney.
