Fitting reply

Reference to “Fighting back, mortar for bullet” by Ajay Banerjee (Sunday Tribune, October 19), the continuous firing which killed Indian civilians at the LoC proves that Pakistan is not interested in peace talks with India. Under these circumstances how are cordial relations even thinkable? India has acted boldly by repelling the attack. A strong Home Minister who can take strong measures is the need of the hour. All political and diplomatic relations must be severed with Pakistan till it proves it is keen to have a meaningful relation with India.

Not to be trusted

Apropos “Nawaz is still the man India should talk to” (Sunday Tribune, October 19), deliberate massive firing along the LoC and International Border has scuttled the chances of even measured engagement with Pakistan that is necessary to improve bilateral ties. There can be no constructive dialogue unless Sharif strengthens his position in the prevailing political turmoil, reins in the forces inimical to his making genuine peace overtures to India and ensures peace on the border. Till then, India should maintain a tough stance.

I expected a whiff of some fresh air from our Pakistani guest in the Guest Column, but he turned out to be a mouthpiece of the Pakistan government. Dutifully, he gave a good makeover to Nawaz as a Prime Minister in control of the country's ambitious army and goings-on in Parliament. He wants us to believe that his country's army is in barracks and not breathing down the neck of Nawaz. He neither talks about Pak High Commissioner to India’s obduracy in talking to Kashmiri separatists nor of the unprovoked firing by his country's army from across the border. And yet he wants India to resume talks. What hypocrisy!

Don’t lose grip

Apropos “Why Pakistan upped the ante on the border” by Raj Chengappa (Ground Zero; Sunday Tribune, October 19) reflects the current scenario and likely future of India-Pak relations. In view of the fact that many international relations have taken full circle since 1947, India-Pak relations need a befitting treatment by all those who understand the dynamics of changing times and challenges of the current times impacting the upcoming economies and their vast populations.

Pakistan's real aim is to disrupt elections in the Valley. Waning democracy needs a positive pump to restore normal life in the Valley. Political and military compulsions result in misadventures every time. Modi should try to tame this “wild member” of the region with his skill and commitment. Aggression will only hurt and kill.
