Srinagar, Jun 7: Hitting out at the neighbouring country over its ‘double standard’ with respect to militancy, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said if Pakistan is unable to eradicate militancy from its land, it should seek help from India.
“It is very unfortunate that there are some forces that are helping militancy. They should understand that terrorism has no religion… and no one knows what it will engulf,” Singh told reporters during a press conference here on Thursday.
Singh said he doesn’t know what has happened to our neighbouring country (Pakistan). “We have already said that we will talk with everyone,” he said.
But, he said Pakistan should at least stop militant activities from its soil. “…and sometimes they say that they also want to eradicate militancy from its soil,” he said.
Singh said if Pakistan is unable to stop militancy, then why don’t they seek help from its neighbouring country (India).
Talking about the secularism nature of India, he said our country is the only country in the world in which all the important religions live in peace and harmony. “There is no other country in the world with such diversity. No Muslim country in the world has as many sects of Islam as India has. People from 72 sects of Islam live in India. And you hate the same India,” the Union Home Minister said.
Singh said some forces are trying to destabilize the country and these forces don’t want India to progress and achieve new heights. But, he said, despite these attempts India is moving ahead and has become fastest growing economy in the world.
