Islamabad. 14 February 2009.
In a rare moment of candid confession, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik disclosed in a televised interview that Mumbai Terror attacks of 26/11 were actually planned on Uranus, the 7th planet in our Solar System. Reacting to India’s strong statements post the attacks, Malik said that he had gone though the dossier sent by India and “liked the page furmatting, very Flum-fair like!! Good pitchersss too!”
On being asked about the reports suggesting Pakistan had confessed that the attacks were planned on “Pakistani soil”, Malik bent forward and explained – “That’s what I said ma-daam’. Pakistani-soil is whutt you find on Uranus! Black, Sindh-type soil…we call it Uranus-soil in Pakistan and I guess, at Uranus, they would be calling it Pakistani soil…no?”
In spite of the hostilities and Uranus being ‘so far away’, he sounded hopeful for future relations “as for the first time since partition, Pakistan has a playboy as President while India has a clueless lady as the counterpart.”
Also, on being alleged that Pakistan is accepting the reposnibilty of the attacks only at the behest of FBI and USA, Rehman Malik just shrugged and said – ‘How could they pressurize us? Who are they? Taliban?’
