Pak breeding terrorists threatening India: Shiv Sena

New Delhi [India], Sept. 23 (ANI): The Shiv Sena on Friday said the entire world is aware about terrorism spreading from the land of Pakistan and said Islamabad is taking advantage of the situation as New Delhi cannot hold it responsible for the same.

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut lashed out at Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for turning a blind eye to the terrorism breeding on his soil.

" Nawaz Sharif is the Prime Minister of Pakistan and talks like that. Everyone in the world knows how terrorism has spread from the land of Pakistan. If there were no terrorists in Pakistan, America wouldn't have killed Laden or the Taliban chief," Raut told ANI.

"If there was no terrorism in Pakistan, they would not have given safety to Dawood and his whole gang. Pakistan has people like Hafiz Sayeed, Lakhvi; they are sitting there and threatening India," he added.

The Shiv Sena leader was also critical of China's support to Pakistan.

"No one would have the courage to support Pakistan openly. Everyone knows what China is doing from the back, but no one will support Pakistan openly.

Whatever the Pakistan media spreads, China will say it does not support Pakistan, but that does not mean China supports India," said Raut.

"We always have had diplomatic win, but diplomatic win will not solve the Kashmir issue or stop the killing of our soldiers. We want a win which solves the Kashmir issue or stops the sacrifice of the Army," he added.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Pakistan Prime Minister raked up the Kashmir issue at the United Nations and glorified slain Hizbul commander Burhan Wani as a "young leader" even as he expressed readiness for a "serious and sustained dialogue" with India for peaceful resolution of all outstanding disputes, especially Jammu and Kashmir.

Sharif, who was addressing the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly ( UNGA), demanded an "independent inquiry into the extra-judicial killings" and a U.N. fact-finding mission to Kashmir "so that those guilty of these atrocities are punished."

China had earlier on Wednesday said it stands with Pakistan and will continue to stand with the country in future.

However, China the very next day distanced itself from reports claiming that Premier Li Keqiang had conveyed his country's backing to Pakistan on the Kashmir issue during his meeting with the Pakistan Prime Minister. (ANI)
