New Delhi: After Uri military base attack where 18 Indian soldiers were killed by terrorists, the Indian-American community has filed a petition to the White House seeking to declare Pakistan a sponsor of terror.
“This petition is important to the people of United States of America, India and many other countries which are continuously affected by Pakistan sponsored terrorism," the petition states.
However, for the Obama administration to tender a reply on the matter, the petition will at least require 1,00,000 signatures which it is expected to hit depending upon the agitation resulting from the attack.
US Congressman Ted Poe has also spoken profusely against Pakistan and its agendas. At the US House of Representatives, Poe said, "Not only is Pakistan an untrustworthy ally, Islamabad has also aided and abetted enemies of the United States for years. From harboring Osama bin Laden to its cozy relationship with the Haqqani network, there is more than enough evidence to determine whose side Pakistan is on in the War on Terror. And it’s not America’s."
Eighteen Indian soldiers were killed in Uri attack in Jammu and Kashmir. Terrorists were disguised as security officials.
