New Delhi: Raising concern over the terror activities still remaining intact in Pakistan, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has asked his counterpart in Islamabad to "now wake up" and stop jehadi groups operating from its soil to target India.

Sending a message to Pakistan in the wake of the Karachi attack, Singh has said that Pakistan leadership should realize that the terror machine there was "equally hurting" them and must take more effective action against the terror groups.

The Prime Minister told reporters that terrorism as an instrument of state policy of Pakistan was "simply not acceptable to people in the civilised world". He was on his way back from six-day visit to Ethiopia and Tanzania on Saturday night.

He said that India will use every possible opportunity to convince Pakistan about it.

"As Pakistan's neighbour, we have great worries about the terror machine that is still intact in Pakistan. We would like Pakistan to take much more effective action to curb the
activities of those Jehadi groups which particularly target a country, like India," he said.

Apparently referring to the recent terror attack on Pakistan navy airbase in Karachi, he said, "The more I see of what is happening in Pakistan the more I am convinced that Pakistan's leadership must now wake up, and must recognize that the terror machine they have or at least some elements in the country patronise, is working not to anybody's advantage."

On 26/11 attacks probe in Pakistan, Manmohan Singh said, "We must convince Pakistan that it is in their own interest that they must help us in tackling the problem of terror in our region.”
 
"Those Jehadi groups that target India, as a destination for their terror, must be effectively curbed and dealt with. That is an ongoing process and at every opportunity that we have, we should continue to impress on Pakistan." PM said.
