Pakistan Parliamentary Panel Asks Govt. to Stop Supporting Terror Groups
Feb 09, 2016

A Pakistan Parliamentary panel has asked the Nawaz Sharif government in Pakistan to not lend support to terrorist groups in Kashmir. The parliamentary panel has advised Pak government against supporting banned terrorists groups operating out of Kashmir.

  • The panel has proposed that Pakistan should act against such groups to curb violence in the region. 

  • The panel has advised against encouraging active support to armed, banned and militant groups in Kashmir.

  • A four-page policy paper issued by the National Assembly Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs says, Pakistan should not encourage calls for active support of armed, banned, militant groups in Kashmir.

  • Pakistani officials said the paper is a reflection of sections in Pakistan’s polity and society who are not in favour of terrorism directed towards India. But, it is an official acceptance of the fact that Pakistan indulges in fuelling terrorism in Kashmir.

  • The panel has proposed that Pakistan should act against armed outfits to dispel international concerns that Pakistan was not doing enough against groups involved in violent attacks in Kashmir. 

  • The committee proposed a two-pronged strategy for better ties: selective engagement and restraint. 

  • It suggested Pakistan’s policy towards India should be based on four key principles: reciprocity, reduction, resumption and result.

  • Pakistan should continue seeking comprehensive engagement with India on all outstanding issues.

  • The panel recommended that Islamabad should engage with India on four key issues: Kashmir, water, trade, and culture and communication.

  • The parliamentary panel is headed by Awais Ahmad Leghari of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz).
