– WASHING THE HANDS
On Friday 01/30/2009, PakistaniForeign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that Pakistan had completed the initial probe of the Mumbai Carnage, which India says were carried out by a banned Pakistani-based group Lashkar-e-Toiba.
India has said it believes the sophistication and planning involved in the attacks mean they could not have been carried out without the knowledge of Pakistani “state elements” – something Islamabad has strongly rejected.
Qureshi told reporters that the report would be sent to the Indian government when the foreign office received it. He said that Pakistan’s High Commissioner in India met with the Indian interior minister and informed him about the probe updates.
On other issues, Qureshi said that it was expected that United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon would announce U.N. investigation, during his visit to Pakistan, into former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto assassination .
Despite all the conclusive evidence related to the Mumbai Carnage Pakistan’s High Commissioner to Britain Wajid Shamsul Hasan insisted that, according to the report, “Pakistani soil had not been used to plan the attacks” as he put it. “Pakistan’s territory was not used so far as we know. It could have been some other place but not the UK,” Hasan told India’s NDTV news channel.
It almost clear that Pakistan prefers to wash its hands rather then confront seriously the evidence.
Pakistan’s Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik said, on Thursday 04/09/2009, that Shahid Jamil Riaz was arrested in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi in connection with the Mumbai Carnage. Shahid Jamil Riaz was alleged to have maintained financial accounts and helped plan the November attack.
