US, with its military actions, is more of a threat to world peace
With reference to Suhasini Haider’s article Let’s pose some tough questions (June 21), it seems that the US, with its plans to provide weapons to Syrian rebels and its military actions in other parts of the world, is the real threat to peace. Just when it seemed that the US had realised its mistake and was moving out of Afghanistan, it has set its sights on the conflict in Syria. The author’s assertions that India should seek answers from the US are impractical as there is no country that can challenge America’s supremacy. Raju R, via email
Sharif waves a red flag at India
With reference to the editorial Sharif must do a lot better (Our Take, June 21), India should take cognisance of the fact that the PML-N has close ties with Hafiz Saeed’s JuD and that this could prove inimical to Indo-Pak relations. The move by Nawaz Sharif’s brother is a message to India that these organisations will remain part of Pakistan’s war machinery. The real test for Nawaz Sharif will be to honour his promise to push economic ties with India and grant it ‘Most Favoured Nation’ status. India, in the meantime, cannot afford to lower its guard.

A stark contrast between the two
With reference to the report 50,000 stranded, rain threat to rescue ops, toll feared high (June 21), the effort put in by the army and several other rescue teams to save the lives of people stranded in Uttarakhand is commendable. The armed forces have always lived up to the task whenever they have been called in during natural calamities. On the contrary, the civilian administration seems uncaring about its responsibilities.
