Pakistan unhappy over response on Headley

The information, provided by India, is being examined by the interior and law ministries.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has expressed dissatisfaction over the Indian response to its dossier seeking information about the role of David Coleman Headley in the Mumbai attacks, officials said here on Monday.

“We have received a reply from India but it did not give us satisfactory information,” a Foreign Office official, who wished not to be named, told The Express Tribune. “The information, provided by India, is being examined by the interior and law ministries,” the official added. However, he would not elaborate further. Forty-nine year old Headley, the Pakistani American now in US custody, confessed his involvement in the terrorist attack on India’s financial capital. In a plea bargain with the US authorities, he admitted to scouting for the Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) ahead of the Mumbai attack.

On August 18, Pakistan had sent a dossier to India, containing 47 queries related to Headley and Jamaat-ud-Dawa Chief Hafiz Saeed and their role in planning the November 2008 attack on Mumbai, which claimed 166 lives.

The questions were related to Headley’s nine trips to India and details about the people he met during those visits. The dossier also asked whether the Indian government knew about his visits and whether he was under surveillance at the time. It sought basic information like Headley’s parentage. Islamabad raised these questions in response to India’s 10 dossiers including three specifically relating to Hafiz Saeed about the involvement of Pakistani nationals in the Mumbai attack.

rocket | 11 years ago | Reply @ Ahmar Ali, its quiet strange and i fail to understand how this article translates into friendship of muslims and non muslims issue even remotely....and as far as your ill conceived theory is concerned,the ongoing sectarian violence and suicide bombing in pakistan leaves no doubt in any sane mind regarding who is friend and who is foe.also consider the huge international aid which is flowing into this hapless nation for flood affectees , mostly from non muslim nations.in present scenario a muslim seems to be the biggest enemy of men of his faith...people like you are being taken for a ride on the name of religion.
Ahmer Ali | 11 years ago | Reply Assalm-o-Allaikum Warahmatullah.After seeing this attitude if our leaders think that non-muslims are the friends of muslims then only it can be said that they are living in fools paradise and also they are opposing the Allah Almighty's clear and open decision written in the doubtless Holy Quran,id est,non-muslims are the friends of non-muslims and only muslims are the friends of muslims and Hazrat Muhammad (APBUH) saying that believer's example is like a wall where a single brick hardens the others.Now the time has come to be reunited against the enemies of Islam and the muslims throughout the world.
