The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said LeT operations commander and 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks mastermind Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi is a snake which could bite both India and China ferociously.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson M J Akbar said the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has taken up this issue seriously with China.
“And, I think, we hope that China sees the wisdom of our position and understands that terrorism, particularly of the most vicious kind, spearheaded by terrorists like Lakhvi is a snake that while trying to bite India is also a snake which can bite China very ferociously,” Akbar told ANI here.
The BJP leader’s remarks came against China’s recent blockade of India’s move in the United Nations for action against Pakistan for Lakhvi’s release from jail.
According to reports, India had earlier at a meeting of the UN Sanctions Committee sought action against Pakistan for Lakhvi’s release in the 26/11 trial, saying it a violation of UN resolution, but the Chinese representatives blocked the move on grounds that New Delhi did not provide sufficient information.
