Should efforts be intensified for release of Indians in Pak jails ?
The government has already delayed this case and it is after the news of Sarabjit that people have come with this demand. This is right time and efforts should be made to get those Indians free who are in the Pakistani jails.
Amit Chowdharyy, JTO, BSNL
Yes. The government should take initiative to get all the Indians freed who are in Pakistani jails. First of all, a list of such prisoners should be demanded from Pakistan and then talks should be held to find out ways to free them.
Dimple Kohli, Businessman
This is the high time to start talks on this issue with Pakistan. The relations between the two nations are improving and Pakistan should prove that it is sincere towards normalisation by freeing the Indians prisoners.
The government should have started talks in this direction much earlier, before the start of rail and bus service. But still it not too late and Pakistan should be asked to prove that it really wants to improve relations with India by releasing the Indians.
Romesh Munshi, Businessman
The reports have said that there are thousands of Indians in Pakistani jails. This way lakhs of people related to them are the sufferers as some are their friends, relatives and well-wishers. Efforts should be done to get them released.
Faheen Ahmed Khan, Businessman
At this juncture, the government should ensure that Pakistan releases Sarabjit. But at the same time talks should begin on the release of other Indians who are in Pakistani jails for long with some having completed their terms.
