"India has no business to have any relations with the country (Pakistan) that has chopped off its limbs," said the 66-year-old writer.

Pakistan-born Canadian writer Tarek Fatah Saturday said India should snap all ties with Pakistan, and claimed that no artistes from the neighbouring country come here without clearance from ISI.

“India has no business to have any relations with the country (Pakistan) that has chopped off its limbs,” the 66-year-old writer told the gathering during ongoing ‘India Ideas Conclave 2016’ here.

“The day you develop dignity to say we don’t want to talk to you, we don’t want trade with you, we don’t want cement and we don’t want to have ‘aman ki asha’, that’s the day they will learn a lesson,” he said.

“No relation means no Indus water to you. Let them go to international court and India should say we are at the war with a criminal,” he said.

Amid demands by various political outfits in India to ban Pakistani artistes, Fatah said nobody comes here (from Pakistan) without the ISI clearance.

“Nobody comes here without ISI clearance. Where are the people defending the artistes? Whom are they fooling?”

He also criticised Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who has upped his ante against the Narendra Modi government over the ‘One Rank One Pension’ issue, saying he should first go to the war-front and then talk.

“Let him go and fight the war before giving any speech,” Fatah said.

            India's problem is the low-lives it has been able to breed over the years under the priesthood of polical cl! It's worth in its own right to be the job for second phase of Sach Bharat campaign!

                Tarek Fateh is an wonderful human being to whom the real humanity comes first. He has sown the seed of a tree which will one day become a banyan tree on its own to give shelter to the tired out and s c r e w e d up humanity that relates specifically to the subcontinent! lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The voice that he is giving to the voiceless and the cornered humanity will also going to gather momentum of its own. It has the potential to right the wrong that has been done to the people in the name of cultist religion to say the least or largely a political eny called Islam to say the most!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;It also has the potential to educate in true humanity the Left over Saheb cl Hindian Stink Tanks who are suffering from Stock Holme syndrome! These Hindians either have not grown out of their teen age years (mentally) or working in tandem with terror sympathisers to give them a landing cushion (see the shops the Kanayiya- wallas has opened!), may be in exchange for some chicken feed thrown at them, from time to time!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;it will be good to see if Tarek Fateh can help establish a human right platform in India which can do all necessary research work in the area and make it an insute. He is a true Indian and is the right person to work for it.
