London—Islamabad has prepared a list of some 35 top terrorists, involved in a number of terror activities in Pakistan and is set to hand over the names to Delhi seeking an early arrest and handing over of the accused to Pakistan, the British daily The ‘Daily Mail’ reported on Wednesday.
According to well-placed sources, the list has been prepared by the Pakistan Foreign Office and the Ministry of Interior, with the assistance of police and intelligence authorities, in the backdrop of the investigations of different incidents of terrorism and sabotage in different parts of the country.
The list was actually prepared many weeks ago but was not given to India with the intentions of gearing up peace process. But, the sources said, now, after India failed to handle the situation sensibly and has instead started asking Pakistan to hand over 20 so called Pakistanis, who it says are involved in numerous terror activities in India. Pakistan has decided to come up with a matching response and has decided to ask India to hand over at least 35 leading terrorists, who were found to be directly or indirectly involved in a number of terrorist activities in Pakistan.
It is learnt that Islamabad is also sending a copy of this list to Washington to bring it to the notice of US authorities and to clarify the actual state of affairs in the backdrop of the Indian allegations in this regard while it is also under consideration to release a detailed report in this direction for the consumption of anti-terror war allies.
According to the sources, list has been prepared after going through the reports of provincial CID departments; police records and intelligence reports and out comes of the investigations and interrogations, carried out by Police and Intelligence agencies. These reports suggest the persons nominated in the list of most wanted Indian are constantly engaged in different forms of terrorism against Pakistan and Pakistani nationals and unless these are handed over to Pakistan for trial in Pakistani courts. South Asian peace cannot be ensured.

This is information left out from the western presses. Killings and violence done by Indians in Pakistan is something they never report or talk about on TV. So, we hear about Pakistanis and terrorists from further west than that, from the Mid-east, killing innocent people in India. Then, we wonder this is all happening.

Pakistan just makes up these names to counter justified indian allegations and every foreign intelligence agency knows this thats why. Pakistan IS the epicentre of terrorism. Bush committed grave mistake in invading Iraq and Afghanistan. All the problems related to terrorism around the world would have been solved had he decided to invade Pakistan

Thank you, Tim. I think it is important to have same yardstick for India and Pakistan, something which is lacking in the Pakistani (as well as Indian and Western) media. That’s why this blog and many others like this one.
