Sushilkumar-Shinde--&-Malik

Visiting Pakistan Interior Minister A Rehman Malik on Friday promised a conviction in the ongoing trials against 26/11 Mumbai attacks perpetrators in Rawalpindi, but India’s Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde was unimpressed by his assurances, asking him not to repeat them, but to act on them.

Malik, who had arrived here on three-day visit, also raised the issue of Babri Masjid demolition, naming it in the same breath as other terror acts such as the 9/11, 1992 Mumbai bomb blasts, 26/11 and the Samjhauta Express bomb blast.

At an event to mark the operationalisation of the liberalised visa agreement that was signed in September this year, Malik, however, was effusive with his friendly overtures to his Indian counterpart, calling him “my brother” and appealing for peace.

“We will leave no stone unturned. I assure the people of India and the Indian authorities that we are on it. The day is not far when you will see conviction and justice will be seen to be done,” Malik said in his address at the event, referring to 26/11 trial against perpetrators, including  Laskhar-e-Toiba leader Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi.
