The BJP on Wednesday warned Pakistan to mend its ways, saying its current manner of functioning would no longer work. The latest salvo from the BJP came after Pakistan’s Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan objected to Narendra Modi’s comment relating to Dawood Ibrahim. The saffron party clarified that Modi was not talking about attacking Pakistan but questioning Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde’s attitude of making public the government’s efforts to bring back Dawood. The Pakistani minister had claimed that Modi, if elected as India’s PM, would “destabilise” regional peace. “Nisar Ali’s statements raise serious doubts over their intention of bringing Indian criminals hiding in Pakistan to justice. It also amounts to an admission that Dawood is living there and this is in the knowledge of their minister,” BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said and added that he shouldn’t create a tense atmosphere between the two countries. “It is an unwelcome attempt to interfere in the criminal, judicial and political processes in India,” she said. Modi has been sending out stern messages to Pakistan in his election speeches. “Modi spoke about his priority in trying to get a convicted Indian criminal back to India and put him under the due process of the legal system. He believes in positive engagement with the global community, peaceful coexistence, but at no point will our foreign policy bow to any other nation or interest group,” Lekhi said.
