Madness, the Modi style

Overwhelming poor ratings for Prime Minister Modi government’s first year’s performance have upset the Jan Sangh tea boy. He thinks Pakistan bashing would solve all problems that he has driven India into.  Modi is fast losing balance , it is unfortunate that the BJP has thrown-up a Prime Minister who has been a practitioner of terrorism as Chief Minister of Indian state Gujarat. Not a long ago he faced travel restriction to the US and the UK on count of his personal involvement in Gujarat massacre.

Prime Minister Modi’s statements during his visit to Bangladesh in which he acknowledged Indian Government’s involvement in the events of 1971 in the then Eastern Province of Pakistan, only confirmed Pakistan’s long standing stance on India’s negative role against a sovereign neighbouring state.

It is regrettable that the Indian politicians not only indulge in actions that are in violation of the United Nations’ Charter but also take pride in recalling their interference in the internal affairs of other states. International community needs to take note of Indian acknowledgement of its interference in East Pakistan.

During his Dhaka University address, Modi’s utterances violated all political norms. While Pakistan believes in peaceful co-existence and maintaining good neighbourly relations with India, characterization of bilateral relations by Prime Minister Modi as “nuisance” is sheer madness.

Instead of reining-in his wobbly ministers and advisers  on their anti-Pakistan rhetoric, Modi has now himself jumped the fray  as master joker!

With love from India

My mother was forced to leave behind the city of her birth, Rawalpindi, when she was just 18 because of the tumultuous ruptures of Partition. She had never returned. When she was to turn 75, I thought the best gift I could give her was to take her, if it was at all possible, to the city and to the home in which she was born. I emailed my friends in Pakistan tentatively with my plan. They were immediately very welcoming. "Just get her a visa, leave the rest to us," they said. I applied for visas. It seemed then a small miracle that we got these easily. I booked our flight tickets, and before long we were on our way. Every night we would set out looking for a wayside shop to buy fruit juice. Each night we found a new shop, and each night without exception, the shopkeeper refused to accept any money for the fruit juice. “We will not charge money from our guests from India,” they would say each time. This happened for a full week. I have travelled to many countries around the world in the 60 years of my life. I have never encountered a people as gracious as those in Pakistan. This declaration is my latest act of sedition.
