New Delhi, Feb 2 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said that no heed should be paid to Jash-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar’s warning and added that Pakistan should shut down the factories of terrorism.
“Not only our government, but the whole nation has zero tolerance towards terrorism. There is no laxity in this attitude. What Masood Azhar is saying is not important? What is important is the attitude and the policy with which India is combating terrorism?” Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told ANI.
Meanwhile, former home secretary and BJP MP R.K. Singh said that Pakistan was breeding terrorists in the form of snakes in its own backyard and added that they would at one point of time turn and bite Islamabad.
“This is what happens when you breed snakes in your backyard. One or two or all of them will turn and bite you. If you keep saying that you are also a victim of terrorism then for God sake shut down the factories of terrorism,” Singh told ANI.
Azhar, one of India’s most wanted terrorists, wrote in Peshawar-based jihadi magazine al-Qalam that his ‘army’ loves death and warned his ‘enemies’ that any action against the jihadis operating against India from Pakistan will have dangerous consequences.
Azhar also issued a veiled warning to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for engaging in talks with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi. (ANI)
