Jammu: Union Minister and National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah Wednesday said India is getting information on “terrorism” from various countries, particularly America, which would help to fight the menace.
“Much of the information, we are getting from other countries. We are getting information about terrorists from America,” he told reporters at Jammu University here.
The former Chief Minister said there is sharing of information among countries and terrorism has become such a common cause that nations are fighting it together.
On reports about the British role in assisting India in Operation Blue Star, he said, “It is a good thing to open the documents. Foreign Secretary (William Hague) has already said that they were party to 1984.”
The Minister was responding to a question about reopening documents relating to Operation Blue Star to flush out militants from the Golden Temple in 1984.
Foreign Secretary William Hague has said Britain’s role in assisting India in mounting Operation Blue Star was “limited” and “purely advisory” and the UK had played no role in the actual operation that took place at the Golden Temple in Amritsar.
