Terror in Pakistan: How India should respond?
There is fire raging in India?s neighbourhood. It must do everything to put out that fire. It must move the UN to declare Pakistan as a rogue state and demand that UN forces be sent to Afghanistan and Pakistan to crush the Taliban and Al Qaeda
WHEN THE Indian and Australian cricket teams refused to tour Pakistan because of security concerns, the Sri Lankan government pushed its team to tour Pakistan as it wanted to express its gratitude to Pakistan for favouring it with arms supplies.  It needed the arms and ammunition for deployment in its war against the LTTE. This expression of gratitude on the part of Sri Lanka has cost it dearly.  But Pakistan too has suffered in the process - its police force has suffered casualties, its image has taken a beating and it stands fully exposed as a failed state.

The Pakistani government also seems to be in a state of confusion. The Governor of the Punjab province of Pakistan declared that the attack on Sri Lankan cricketers in Lahore was a Mumbai-type attack while a minister in the government of Pakistan stated that there was an Indian connection to the attack. However, the arrest of four Afghans by the Punjab (Pakistan) police has established that it is the handiwork of the Al Qaeda / Taliban.

Now it seems that for the next few years, no cricketing nation would be willing to tour Pakistan for security reasons. Meanwhile, India must realise that there is fire raging in its neighbourhood.  It must do everything in its power to put off that fire, which means that it must move the UN to declare Pakistan as a rogue state and demand that UN forces be sent to Afghanistan and Pakistan to fight out the Taliban and Al Qaeda. The fire would engulf India if it does not act to put it out.
