Pakistan Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan on Thursday spoke after conclusion of SAARC meeting in Islamabad which was attended by Home Minister Rajnath Singh. In a clear indication to India’s criticism of Pakistan, he said, “We should not just point fingers at each other and then go our ways. We should sit and talk out issues.”

Nisar’s comments come after Rajnath Singh gave a clear message at SAARC meet that India was not going to ignore the problem of terrorism and urged all member countries to take a strict stand against it.

In an indirect mention to Kashmir issue, Nisar said: “No country should try and hide behind the word terrorism and divert attention from demands of freedom.” However he also maintained a friendly stance and mentioned that Pakistan was always ready for talks with India and that ‘they had never close their doors’.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh spoke at SAARC meeting and said that ‘there should be no glorification of a terrorist as a martyr’ in a reply to Pakistan’s continuous attempt at showcasing slain Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani as an icon of youth in Kashmir.

There were also speculations regarding apparent show of rift between both the leaders as reports stated that Nisar and Singh ‘barely shook hands’ as latter reached the SAARC meeting venue in Islamabad.

Also, both the leaders were absent from lunch event organised after the meet. Talking about this, Nisar said that Rajnath Singh had told him that he will attend the lunch only if Nisar too was coming for it. “Unfortunately i had another meeting,” he said.

            ... . . stan's only way to stay relevant to the world is through selling its products of terr orism that comes in different forms and shapes! If you don't want to deal with Pak istan because it has not much good thing to offer to humanity, here is another product that also sells like h ot cakes, makes people sit down and think about, get engaged and even give money in return!! What an invention! The return on this investment is not much less or even in some cases much higher than any honestly produced product!! By selling this product stan got tens of billions from different sources in the past and now having found a niche market for itself, even Ch ina has taken upon itself to buy this product (recently invited the Tal ibans for a meeting) investing heavily in cash and kind in stan! !!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Probably this how H ea ven or He ll is made!!!
