KABUL - Pakistan should hand over the remaining senior Taliban leaders to Afghanistan, some Afghan MPs said on Thursday.
Lawmakers urged the international community and the government to apply more pressures on Pakistan so that the country starts acting honestly in the fight against terrorism and detention of senior Taliban leaders.
The death of Osama Bin Laden, the terror face of the world, near Pakistani capital Islamabad is a proof that suicide bombing plotters are living in Pakistan, Deputy Secretary of Parliament Farhad Azimi said.
"Considering the death of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan, it is the right and suitable situation apply pressure on Pakistan to give up supporting and fueling anti-Afghan insurgents," Mr Azimi said.
Mr Azimi said reaction of Pakistani and Afghan Taliban after the death of al-Qaeda leader is politically motivated.
By hosting insurgent sanctuaries Pakistan wants to impose its double standard policies over neighboring countries, legislators said.
Habiba Danesh, an Afghan MP representing northern Takhar province, said of no doubt Pakistan was aware of the fact Osama was living on its soil.
Following a flood of questions over the fact that Osama Bin Laden was living near Islamabad, Pakistani officials have now begun to blame their own failures on other countries.
Pakistan's Prime Minister Yosuf Raza Gilani on Wednesday said that spy agencies around the world share the blame for his country's failure to capture al-Qaeda leader.
"Certainly, we have intelligence failure of the rest of the world including the United States," Gilani said during his France visit.
Pakistan's ambassador in the United States Hussain Haqqani has said presence of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan couldn't have been possible without supported of an organization in Pakistan.
"All that is possible is that there are individuals within Pakistan who provided a support network for Osama bin Laden," Hussain Haqqani has said.
"Pakistanis have to get worried about why he chose Pakistan as the place to live. Obviously he felt comfortable there, and that is something that we will deal with the question and find the answer."
Mr Haqqani has said if Pakistan allows insurgents use its soil to carry out their activities it will no longer be part of international community. Presence of militants in Pakistan ruins our deserved rights and privileges. (Tolo News)
