Some time back Rahul Gandhi made a statement that India was giving undue importance to Pakistan. He needs to be complimented for this statement.Even after this statement the running do of the Nehru-Gandhi family Sardar ManMohan Singh did have a Pakistan centric foreign policy .Why are we obsessed with Pakistan.Here is a country which is 1/5th size of India and with an Industrial base far behind.It nowhere features as world power or a country that inspires admiration.Its a country racked by fundamentalism and has created a monster in the form of support for terrorrism( against India) and is now reaping what it has sowed.
One expected things to change with the advent of Narendra Modi. He started on a track of toughness by cancelling the secretary level talks with Pakistan on the issue of the Pak ambassador talking to the Hurriet. But with a few months Modi has buckled down at the knees and now the Indian Foreign Minister is in Pakistan exploring how the dialogue can resume. Mind you Pakistan has hardly taken any step and one fails to understand as to how there can even be talks and what result can be expected. The reason is that Pakistan has mae it clear, that Kashmir issue is central to normalcy and their view is that Kashmir should have self determination and a plebicite.
It's about time that the Indian political leadership realised this and treated Pakistan for what it is - a rogue state that foments terror and supports proliferation of nuclear weapons. If Pakistan persists in this policy a surgical military strike may do the trick.There is no need to fear.World opinion supports the strong.A weak nation never won any sympathy.
India must reorient its policy and put Pakistan in its place for what it is- a second rate nation that aspires to greatness. Remember the frog who blew himself up while imitating a lion.
