Will bring to justice 26/11 perpetrators, says Malik

Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik Friday said his country was committed to bring to justice those who had taken part in 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, but also added that his country does not want a repeat of the unpleasant incidents of past, including demolition of Babri Masjid.

"We do not want 9/11, Mumbai bomb blast, Samjhauta Express blast. We do not want Babri Masjid issue," Malik said in the presence of Indian Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde.

Referring to the 26/11 Mumbai attack, Malik said the Pakistani government has taken action on it and seven people have been arrested and 20 others have been named as proclaimed offenders.

"We will not leave any stone unturned. The day is not far away when you will see convictions," he said.

Malik added a discordant note when he referred to the Dec 6, 1992, Babri Masjid demolition along with the reference to 9/11 attack, 26/11 Mumabi terror attack and the Samjhauta Express blast of 2007, in which some Hindu right-wing groups have been suspected of involvement.
