Centre to oppose bill that declares Pakistan as terrorist nation

Thursday, February 23, 2017

The Centre will oppose a Private Member’s Bill moved in the Rajya Sabha recently seeking to declare countries like Pakistan terror states. Independent Member of Parliament Rajeev Chandrasekhar had moved The Declaration of Countries as Sponsor of Countries as Sponsor of Terrorism Bill, 2016 to impose legal, economic and travel sanctions on citizens of countries which promote terror. The Bill came up for discussion recently. The Home Ministry has written to the Parliament Secretariat opposing the Bill as it jeopardises international relations under the Geneva Convention. We have diplomatic relations with the neighbouring country which includes High Commissions as well as trade relations. It will not be prudent to declare any country as a terror state as India is bound by international norms. India has accused Pakistan of instigating terror attacks but the two countries have maintained diplomatic relations even during the Kargil war and Operation Parakram. Last year, India asked its officials in Pakistan High Commission to not send their children to schools there and return them to India. The ill relations between the two countries is solely because of cross border firing and the move to create terror due to regular strikes in J&K. India still wants to have peaceful relationship with its neighbour and that forced them to have a no terror state tag for our old enemy Pakistan.
