Why do most Indian terrorism experts tend to blame Pakistan when such attacks take place?
When the Indian state is so vulnerable to violent attacks, one can’thelp but listen to what its senior ministers and government say on record in Parliament. Pranab Mukherjee, who was on a visit to the US, said in an interview to India Abroad diplomatic editor Aziz Haniffathat ‘the United States of America considers Pakistan as a very effective ally to fight against terrorism andthe Taliban. We consider that cross-border terrorism in Jammu andKashmir is taking place as it is inspired by Pakistan. But these two different appreciations of situations does not mean we are not friends.’ Raman pointed out that Mukherjee’s statement says it all. Notwithstanding the peace process, Pakistan President General Musharraf hasnot taken any credible legal action against the Harakat ul-Mujahideen aka Harakat ul-Ansar’s chief Fazlur Rehman Khalil, or against LeT chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed. They are engaged openly in anti-India activities in Pakistan. Whena reliable source in the Indian government claims
