The Ministry of External Affairs has said that strong Indian democracy and justice system needs no self-serving sermons from anybody, much less from a country like Pakistan.
The MEA’s response came after Pakistan expressed concerns over acquittal of Aseemanand in Ajmer Dargah blast in 2007 by a special National Investigation Agency (NIA) court in Jaipur earlier this month.
Aseemanand is also an accused in Samjhauta Blast case.The blasts on Samjhauta Express had taken place on February 18, 2007, killing 68 people, mostly Pakistanis. Pakistan has been pursuing the case of Samjhauta Express with the Indian government.
Responding to media queries, Official Spokesperson, Gopal Baglay said, “India completely rejects Pakistan’s efforts and intention to meddle in our internal affairs including the judicial process within our country. We also totally reject the completely untenable link which is sought to be established by Pakistan with any other matter currently under purview of the Indian courts.”
Warning Pakistan not to meddle in India’s judicial process, India told Pakistan to take action to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism in its own territory and bring to justice the masterminds who continue to operate and enjoy the freedom there to commit, promote and support terrorism against Pakistan’s neighbors.
