Normalisation of Relations with Pakistan through Cricket

India continues to make efforts to build peaceful and stable relations with Pakistan. This includes promotion of sporting ties. However terrorism against India emanating from Pakistan and territory under its control remains a core concern for us.

Government has given clearance to BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) for Pakistan Cricket Team’s tour to India to participate in three One Day Internationals and two Twenty-Twenty matches from December 25, 2012 to January 6, 2013. The matches will be played in Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata. The issue of visas to Pakistani nationals coming to India to watch cricket matches at various venues will be in accordance with extant rules and regulations.

As per available information, two alleged conspirators of Mumbai terror attack, as revealed by David Coleman Headley, visited New Delhi in 2005 on the pretext of watching India-Pakistan cricket match. Government continues to take steps to enhance and facilitate contacts between peoples of the two countries who lie at the heart of the bilateral relationship, including promotion of sporting ties.

Government has conveyed to the Pakistan leadership, including at the highest levels that Pakistan must abide by its commitment that it will not allow its territory and territory under its control to be used for aiding and abetting of terrorist activities against India and for providing sanctuaries to such terrorist groups. It has also been conveyed to Pakistan that an expeditious and successful conclusion of the investigation and trial relating to those involved in the Mumbai attacks would be a major confidence building measure and would help bridge the trust deficit.

The Minister of State in the Ministry Of External Affairs Shri E. Ahamed provided this information in reply to questions in Rajya Sabha today.
