Mumbai blasts an attempt to create tension between India, Pakistan: Farooq Abdullah

Srinagar, July 14 (ANI): Condemning the serial blasts in Mumbai, Union Minister Dr. Farooq Abdullah has said that it was an attempt to create tension between India and Pakistan by certain miscreants.

Addressing mediapersons here, Abdullah said: "We should not comment on the incident that has taken place in Mumbai till more details emerge. But one thing is clear the perpetrators of the blasts are those elements who do not wish to see normalcy in relations between India and Pakistan."

"You know, the Foreign Minister of Pakistan would be visiting India soon. The blast comes weeks before the planned visit. The perpetrators want tension between India and Pakistan so that they can continue to spread their propaganda and nefarious activities. However, we will not let them succeed in this," he added.

The three serial blasts rocked Zaveri Bazaar, a popular jewellery market, the busy business area around Opera House and the crowded Dadar area of Central Mumbai between 6.45 p.m. and 7.04 p.m. (ANI)
