LONDON (Reuters) – Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari said on Tuesday Britain has to tackle its own issues of deprivation to stop the radicalisation of British Muslims.
In an interview with ITV’s «News at Ten», he rejected the suggestion it was Pakistan’s role to win the hearts and minds of radicalised British Muslims, although he said his country would arrest any radical Briton visiting Pakistan and send them back to the UK.

«The appeal has to be on the other side,» he was due to say in the programme to be aired on Tuesday evening.
«I think Britain has to take the responsibility and make sure that they do not feel the deprivation they have been. Because we all know this is a state of mind that comes up from some kind of this.
«And one has to fight it in Britain and not in Pakistan.»
