Sena says no dialogue with Pakistan till it stops targeting India

Mumbai: BJP ally Shiv Sena on Friday said if Prime Minister Narendra Modi succeeds in bringing back fugitive mafia don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar, it would support his brief halt in Pakistan.

"Tomorrow is Dawood Ibrahim's birthday... if the PM can succeed in bringing him back to India, then we shall welcome and support his meeting wih Pakistan prime minister today," Sena MP and spokesperson Sanjay Raut said here.

He reiterated the party's known stance that "there should be no dialogue with Pakistan till it stops targeting India with terror acts".

"Even yesterday (Thursday) there was a terror strike in Jammu and Kashmir in which some 12-13 soldiers were seriously injured and are battling for life," Raut pointed out.

He rued that BJP does not consult or seek consent of the Sena on important international issues (like this).

To a query on former journalist Sudheendra Kulkarni who has urged Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray to visit Pakistan, Raut dismissively said "nobody knows or has heard of Kulkarni".
