Trinamool MP in Lok Sabha, Kalyan Banerjee today condemned the granting of bail by a Pakistani court to the mastermind of 26/11 attacks. He said that the court had ignored all evidence submitted by India and urged the government to take any necessary step to bring him to justice.

Full transcript of his speech:

Yesterday was a very unfortunate day, when I heard on basis of evidence a Pakistani court has come to the conclusion that the charges were not established. Madam, Indian Government had handed over the evidence which conclusively proves the allegation itself. Unfortunately, the evidence was discarded.

Without using any expression for the judiciary, I am using a very legal term, entire findings of Pakistani court was totally perverse and ignored the evidence which was handed over by the Indian Government.

Therefore, I through you, Madam, request the Hon’ble Ministers who are present here, very seriously and immediately matter should be taken up with the Pakistan Government that immediate appeal should be preferred against this judgement.

All steps should be taken for that purpose with an appeal to the Hon’ble Minister to say to the Pakistan Government and if they feel our Attorney General may be taken there for the purpose of argument against the accused.

I know limitations are there, nevertheless a request can be made – if need be Attorney General of India will go and argue the matter against the accused and we condemn in a very strict language against this judgement.
