Mumbai, Feb 17 (ANI): Union Minister of State for External Affairs Anand Sharma on Tuesday asked Pakistan to take demonstrated action to neutralize the forces like Taliban.
Pakistan must take demonstrated action to neutralise such forces. The resolve and capacity of Pakistan not to compromise with but neutralise those propagating violence and religious intolerance is the issue, Sharma said.
The Minister refuse to respond on the speculation about Pakistans claim that it might arrest underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
I am not going to respond to speculation unless we have authentic information,” he said.

No region can escape the threat of organized terrorism. The forces of terror created a situation which calls for a robust global response, Sharma said. (ANI)
