'Terrorist' for one nation can't be martyr for another: Rajnath

Rajnath Singh said, 'I did not see whether my speech was covered live or not. Singh, too, didn't attend that lunch.

Third, and as the ministry of external affairs told the media on Friday, India had already taken a dim view of the Pakistani government denying visas to all Indian media personnel bar those from the official media.

Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday obliquely asked Pakistan not to glorify terrorists while Islamabad, in a clear reference to Jammu and Kashmir, denounced the use of "excessive force" against civilians.

Rajnath Singh called for "strongest action not only against terrorists or organisations but also against those individuals, organisations and nations which support terrorism". It is the standard SAARC practice that only the opening statement by the host country is public and open to the media. But right after extending the invitation, the Minister sat in his auto and left.

Despite heavy security arrangements, the activists of various religious and jihadi outfits in Pakistan protested the visit of Home Minister Rajnath Singh, blaming India for the unrest in Kashmir.

Quoting prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who famously stated that one can chose friends, but not neighbours, Singh said Vajpayee, Manmohan Singh and Narendra Modi went all out to improve the relationship with the neighbours.
