India lashes out at Pak for Bail to Zaki Ur Rehman

News

New Delhi, Dec 18: India lashed out at the Pakistan Government for granting bail to the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Zaki Ur Rehman Lakhvi, an accused of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, saying the neighbouring country showed its real face over the issue of terrorism just a day after it vowed to eliminate the terror groups following the painful deaths of the school kids in Peshawar tragedy.

Just an hour after the Pakistan court granted bail to the terrorist, BJP leader GVL Narsimha Rao said, "I think the court and the Government of Pakistan is taking a very lenient view of 26/11 accused and granting bail to the accused reflects this. This is happening merely two days within the gruesome incident in Peshawar. Pakistan has to take a look on the kind of encouragement they have given. This shows Pakistan's sincerity towards terrorism".

Meanwhile, Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja said that this reelected that Pakistan is not serious about fighting against terrorism. 

"At least after the Peshawar tragedy, in which more than 130 children were killed, Pakistan should have acted in a very serious manner. Pakistan government should understand this. This doesn't show that they are serious in fighting against terrorism. This is very shocking regarding their attitude towards 26/11 accused. Pakistan should behave in a mature manner in fighting against terrorism," the CPI leader said.

Such act showed the double standard of talks of Pakistan over the issue of terrorism. According to reports in The Dawn, Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency prosecutor had disagreed with the bail plea, but the court released Lakhvi with surety bonds worth Pakistan Rs 5, 00,000.
