On a day that saw Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament Rajiv Chandrashekhar withdraw his private members bill asking for Pakistan to be declared a terror sponsor, Union Minister of State for Home Hansraj Ahir said that declaring any country a terrorist state may have negative impact also.

Earlier, speaking in Rajya Sabha, Rajiv Chandrashekhar withdrew his private members Bill asking for Pakistan to be declared a terror sponsor, saying here was no need to investigate on whether the neighbouring country is a terror state or not, as the world knows it is. Speaking in the Upper House of the Parliament he said that the Centre should explore more options against Pakistan rather than candle raising and military options.

Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swami also said that the time has come for India to ened reconciliation with Palistan. Stressing that India’s western neighbour has always abetted and aided enemies of the United States he asked how long should india keep on citing peace with Pakistan. Few days back, in a biggest statement ever made by an ex-Pakistani general that proves that Pakistan is a terrorist sponsoring state, Ex-Pak NSA Mahmud Ali Durrani exposed the role of Pakistan in the 26/11 Mumbai attack while speaking at the 19th Asian Security Conference, Delhi, he said, “I hate to admit it that the 26/11 Mumbai attack carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan is classic trans-border terrorist event.”
