The problem in this case is precisely that they have not been verified.One, they are verifiable. And two, we have some people, some testimony by people who claim to have seen them.

If you think that the British High Commissioner would make a mistake on this matter, again, you are free to do so.

Sir, let us await events. I fear you are getting deeply moved by the situation, and that is not needed. We can shortly find out what is what. Let us give it a break.

There is no need to doubt Ayesha Jallals or Dr Ishtiaq on this matter.
