I draw the attention of my readers to this article in the New York Times.
Pakistani establishment has been accepting, denying and casting aspersions on everybody else in the world like an ostrich with its head buried in the sand.
The leadership is scared of the ISI and the militants who enjoy official patronage. They dare not take action against these elements within their borders.
Indians will live with terrorism and chest thumping by this rogue state which has its begging bowl out for dole from the rest of the world. India will survive. Pakistan I suspect will not. Even the Kashmiris, have now shown that they would rather be with India in the recent elections held there. I am not surprised. Who in his right mind will want to join a failing state whose sole purpose to exist seems to be to promote terrorism within its borders, export it to neighboring countries and to get it all financed by the gullible Americans and other Western Countries.
A number of us in India dread the prospect of “moderate” English speaking urban Pakistanis flooding into India as refugees when the Taliban and the Al Quida convert Pakistan into their country for which they have been longing for for all this time. In India we consider the Pakistani belief that the Taliban is encouraged by India as the biggest joke of the century. Are these people blind, deaf and completely immune to the global media?
I lived in Delhi when we had Afghan refugees coming into India en route to Western Countries. Perhaps the same will happen in the case of Pakistan. I doubt that Indians will extend the same hospitality to the Pakistanis if they do decide to flee the Taliban and the Al Quida. The Indian Muslims will be first ones to turn them away after they have seen the duplicity of the so called Pakistani neutral press in the recent past.
Every Dollar and Euro and Pound that goes to Pakistan as aid, hastens this prospect.
