Pakistan :  Human Rights activist Ansar Burney has urged the Pakistan government to accept the donation offered by India for the flood relief work “in the greater interest of peace and love.” 

On the one hand they are begging the world for help and accepting all donations and on the other they are not accepting a donation of “love and peace” from India, Mr. Burney has said. 

Mr. Burney, Pakistan’s former Minister for Human Rights, said this is the first time that Indian government has shown a very “positive attitude” towards Pakistan after the Mumbai terror attacks and the Government of Pakistan should respond positively to the kind gesture of “love” for the sake of flood victims and also for the sake of peace in the region.

He said this is not the time to bring bad memories from the past or to scratch the old wounds.
Mr. Burney added that External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna has brought forward a friendly hand by announcing $ 5 million in flood aid and Pakistan should hold this hand with the same friendly spirit.
“Pakistan is in a critical state right now and this is the time we rise above our personal or political preferences and make our decisions for benefit of the people of Pakistan and also appreciate all the help we get from our friends in this difficult time,” he said. 

“By accepting the donation from India, Pakistan could send a positive message to the other side of the border as well and will also help bring the two countries together,” Mr. Burney said.
