Pakistan must turn secular: Rawat

Pakistan will have to develop as a secular state in order to stay together with India, said the Chief of the Army Staff, General Bipin Rawat, on Friday.“Pakistan will have to introspect on its internal condition… It has transformed itself into an Islamic state. If they have to stay together with India, then they will have to develop as a secular state. How can we stay together when they say they are an Islamic state and there is no role for anybody else? If they are willing to become secular, then there seems to be an opportunity,” General Rawat said on the sidelines of the passing-out parade of the 135th batch at the National Defence Academy. Gen. Rawat said it remained to be seen whether Pakistan made moves in that direction or not.
