Indian says wanted militant still waging hate from Pakistan, hurting peace prospects
WASHINGTON (AP) ' India's foreign minister says the brains behind the 2008 Mumbai attacks is still using Pakistan for a "hate India campaign."
External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna told The Associated Press the peace process between the South Asian rival nations would continue, but Pakistan has to help "checkmate" terrorist groups for relations to be normalized.
Krishna will visit Pakistan next month. He said India only has to look on Pakistani television to see that militant leader Hafiz Mohammad Saeed (sy-EED') remains free.
The Lashkar-e-Taiba (LAHSH'-kar ee TOY'-buh) group he founded is blamed for the Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people, the worst terror attack suffered by India.
Pakistan has resisted Indian demands to do more against Saeed, saying there isn't sufficient evidence.
Krishna was speaking in Washington after high-level U.S.-India talks.
