‘Decide whether it’s a terror outfit or not’: Omar Abdullah to Centre after India’s talks with Taliban


Omar Abdullah has asked the Centre to clarify its stand on Taliban, and whether the government considers it a terror organisation.

A day after India’s first official talks with the Taliban following the latter’s return to Afghanistan, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah on Wednesday asked the Centre to clarify its stand on Taliban, and whether the government considers it a terror organisation.

“Either Taliban is a terror organisation or it is not. Please clarify to us how you (GoI) see the Taliban,” the National Conference vice president told reporters after an Indian representative in Doha met a Taliban leader on Tuesday.

This was the first officially acknowledged meeting when Indian Ambassador to Qatar Deepak Mittal met senior Taliban leader Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanekzai and conveyed India’s concerns that Afghanistan’s soil should not be used for anti-Indian activities and terrorism.

“Is the Taliban a terrorist organisation and if it is not, will you move to the United Nations to delist it as a terror organisation. Right now, you (India) are presiding over the UN Security Council,” Abdullah, who has been a Minister of State for External Affairs during Vajpayee’s tenure, said.
