Pakistan has become ‘Talibanised’: BJPMarch 4th, 2009 - 5:49 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 4 (IANS) The terrorist attack on Sri Lankan cricketers in Lahore proves that Pakistan has become “Talibanised” and a failed state, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley said Wednesday.
“There is also no distinction (in Pakistan) between state actors and non-state actors,” Jaitley told a news conference here, adding that Indians should stop differentiating between the two.
Terrorists numbering six to a dozen carried out an audacious daylight attack on the Sri Lankan team in the heart of Lahore Tuesday, wounding six players and an assistant coach and killing six policemen and two civilians.
The killings, blamed on Islamists, shows that Pakistan “has become Talibanised, it has become a failed state”, he said.
