Advocating for a dialogue between India and Pakistan, Union Minister Farooq Abdullah today said the UPA Government has taken a tough stand on terrorism and will not bow before such forces.

Dialogue between India and Pakistan is the need of the hour, he told reporters at temple town of Shirdi near here in Western Maharashtra.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is a peace-loving man, but he taken a tough stand on terror after the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, he said.

While taking on the terrorists, it is not important which party is ruling either in India or Pakistan, the National Conference leader said.

The terror activities are not confined to Jammu and Kashmir, but have spread to the country's financial capital, Abdullah said, and asked the people to be alert and thwart the nefarious designs of anti-national forces.

Coming down heavily on the BJP-led NDA, Abdullah said, "it does not have any issue to raise, that's why it is attacking the UPA Government's foreign policy."
