New Delhi: Soon after Home Minister Rajnath Singh briefed the Rajya Sabha about his speech in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) conference that was held in Islamabad, here is how leaders in the Upper house responded to Rajnath’s address in Parliament on Friday. 
Senior Congress party leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said, “If home minister did not receive respect and honour due to him in Pakistan during his visit as per protocol, we condemn it. If last night's blackout actually happened, then it's a clear indication of dictatorship and not democracy.”
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Chief Sharad Yadav said, “We all saw the way Pakistan did not maintain protocol in the way they treated Home Minister, we are one in condemning it. But there seems to be some discrepancy in what foreign ministry is saying about protocol issues regarding visit.”
Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Ramgopal Yadav said, “Pakistan is not accustomed to politeness. They should be taught a lesson.”

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati said, “In wake of recent media reports on behavior of Pakistan, I would urge the Home Minister to speak to the Prime Minister to reconsider strategy on Indo-Pak relations.”
Majeed Menon of the NCP said, “We condemn the protests held all across Pakistan against our Home Minister’s visit.”
Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Subramanian Swamy asked the Home Minister, “They (Pakistan) are now even at official level as high as Prime Minister, daily talking about disintegration of India, Kashmir. I want to ask Home Minister whether he spoke to Pak Prime Minister and told him his own backyard's falling apart, Baloch going in one direction, Sindh in another."
Responding to the queries raised in the Rajya Sabha about his SAARC visit, here’s what Rajnath said:

  • It is true that Doordarshan, ANI & PTI reporters who had come from India were not allowed to enter.
  • I have no hesitation in saying every Indian PM regardless of whichever party has shown determination in fight against terror.
  • I appreciate how all members have spoken in one voice on the issue of terrorism.
  • I appreciate the unity of the House against terrorism, it reflects the country's determination to fight terrorism.
  • Pak Interior Minister invited everyone for lunch,but then left in his car. I also left then.I have no grudges as I wasn't there to have lunch.
  • I will not comment whether Pakistan was right or wrong in not allowing coverage ( of his speech at SAARC summit).

Unhe jo karna tha unhone kia, mai uss sambandh mein koi pratikriya vyakt nhi karna chahta. Mujhe koi shikwa, shikayat nhi,” Rajnath added.

Laaton ka bhoot baaton se nahi manta

appears they have lost the virtue even to call themselves islamic. uncouth, discourtesy, and babaric way have made their DNA into that of some species in the world where they need to be redomesticated. Insult to 1.35 bn indians unpardonable, untenable, uncompromisable. What Islam Says About Loving Thy Neighbor "O mankind! Allah created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know each other (not that you despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)." Nobel Qur'an (49:13) “None of you have faith until you love for your neighbor what you love for yourself” (Sahih Muslim) “Serve God, and join not any partners with Him; and do good- to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbors who are near, neighbors who are strangers, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (ye meet), and what your right hands possess [the slave]: For God loveth not the arrogant, the vainglorious” (Q:4:36)
