February 11th, 2009 - 4:37 pm ICT by IANS  

Narendra ModiNew Delhi, Feb 11 (IANS) Home Minister P. Chidambaram Wednesday rebuffed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for saying that terrorists from Pakistan could not have attacked Mumbai without help from within India.”You should ask Narendra Modi and Pakistan if they are in contact with each other,” said Chidambaram, while explaining what he thought of Modi’s remark. The minister refused to elaborate.

Speaking at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national executive meeting in Nagpur, Modi said: “Such a big terror attack on India cannot take place without any internal help.”

The Pakistan media used Modi’s remarks to insist that the Mumbai terror attacks that killed some 170 people in Mumbai were abetted by what it said were alienated Indian Muslims.
