Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s plan to visit Pakistan this week to attend a SAARC summit remains unchanged even after a threat by terror group Hizbul Mujahideen. "The host country is responsible for the home minister's security," top sources said.

Ahead of Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s visit to Islamabad to attend a SAARC meet, Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin has warned Pakistan against welcoming him. At a rally in Lahore on Sunday, he accused Rajnath of "deploying soldiers in Kashmir to shed the blood of innocents."

The Pakistan government has not reacted to the comments yet. Rajnath’s visit comes amid mounting tensions between India and Pakistan. The Indian government has said that no bilateral meeting between Rajnath and Pakistani leaders will take place during the SAARC ministerial conference on August 4.

After the killing of Burhan Wani, Hizbul Mujahideen’s wanted commander, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had made provocative comments on Kashmir situation. He had also said that "Kashmir will one day become Pakistan."

Reacting sharply to his remark, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had said that his dream "will not be realised even at the end of eternity".
