As Pakistan accuses "enemies" of supporting terrorism, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah says comments by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has given Islamabad the perfect "opening". "Unfortunately we have given them this sort of high moral ground to take because our own defence minister has gone on record to say that we will use terrorism to end terrorism," he said. Mr Abdullah called Mr Parrikar's statement ill-advised and said "this is exactly the sort of opening that Pakistan has been looking for." He dissociated his party with his uncle Mustafa Kamal's statement in which Mr Kamal asked what was wrong with waving Pakistani flags in the Valley and blamed 'agencies' for attacks on mobile towers. Mr Abdullah also spoke on separatist SAS Geelani's passport controversy and the return of Rahul Gandhi.
