Pakistan is “arguing that if the case proceeds, it ‘will fuel violence and extremism’ that will threaten Pakistan government and pour ‘gasoline on the fire’ of relations between Pakistan and India.” So in other words, don’t shed light on how we sponsored a murderous jihad terror attack against India, or it will lead to more jihad terror attacks against India. As Muhammad Atta told the passengers on his hijacked flight, stay quiet, and you will be OK.
Friend and Ally Update: “Pak aims to block lawsuit against ISI chief in US court,” from the Times of India, May 11 (thanks to Ashish):
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan is preparing to block a lawsuit in a US court that alleges complicity of its spy chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha in the audacious 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, on the grounds that it will pour “gasoline on the fire” of Indo-Pak relations.
The country’s military-run ISI has roped in American lawyers, who are moving to quash the lawsuit in a Brooklyn court by arguing that if the case proceeds, it “will fuel violence and extremism” that will threaten Pakistan government and pour “gasoline on the fire” of relations between Pakistan and India, NBC News reported.
