Time for Pakistan's leaders to stand up against extremists: Tulsi Gabbard


WASHINGTON: It's time for Pakistan's leaders to stand up against extremists, Democratic presidential aspirant Tulsi Gabbard has mentioned, as she slammed the rustic for offering terrorists with a safe haven which is causing tensions with India.

Tensions have escalated between India and Pakistan after the February 14 Pulwama assault claimed through Pakistan-based terror staff Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM). Forty CRPF squaddies have been killed in the assault.

India performed air moves against the largest coaching camp of JeM in Balakot. In the operation, the government mentioned several JeM terrorists, running shoes, senior commanders and groups of jihadis who have been being educated for suicide attacks have been killed.

"As long as Pakistan is providing terrorists with a safe haven, there will be heightened tensions between the two countries," Gabbard mentioned.


"It's time for Pakistan's leaders to stand up against the extremists and terrorists,” mentioned Gabbard, a former co-chair of the House Caucus for India and Indian Americans. Gabbard is the four-time lawmaker from Hawaii.


Congressman Ted Yoho also advised Pakistan to take significant steps to address terrorist groups.


"Congress and the Indo-Pacific area are carefully watching the latest tensions between India and Pakistan. The final thing the area and the arena needs is a war between two nations armed with nuclear guns,” he mentioned.


"I urge Pakistan to take significant steps to address terrorist groups running inside their nation and for both governments to resolve their differences peacefully,” mentioned Yoho, Lead Republican for the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, and Nonproliferation.
