Petition to condemn Pak over terrorism evoke massive response in UK pardesi news 1475468409

The petition titled 'UK Govt to strongly condemn Pakistan or providing safe haven for terrorists' has now crossed the number of signatures required to make it incumbent upon the UK government to respond to it.

A new petition filed on the official UK Parliament website calling on Britain to "strongly condemn" Pakistan for providing a safe haven for terrorists today crossed the threshold of 10,000 signatures. Since, petition filed in British parliament condemning Pakistan on terrorism has been gaining in sufficient response, this will force the incumbent UK government to respond. According to the petition, Pakistan’s "The Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) has often been accused of playing a role in major terrorist attacks across the world including the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States, terrorism in Kashmir, Indian Parliament Attack and Mumbai terror attacks".

However, the aim is to gather as many as 100,000 signatures by the March 29, 2017 deadline so that the issue has to be considered for a parliamentary debate in the House of Commons.

Tensions between India and Pakistan are growing after militants stormed an Indian Army base in Uri on September 18, killing 19 soldiers. In response, the terror launch pads across the border were also targeted by the Indian Army, inflicting "significant casualties" on terrorists preparing to infiltrate from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
