Dialogue is the only way to resolve issues with Pakistan
With reference to the editorial Pakistan is back to its old ways (Our Take, August 07), the killing of Indian troops in an audacious cross-border strike is yet another instance where the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir has been violated by Pakistan. Over the last two years, violence along the LoC has been increasing. This is sure to adversely affect efforts to normalise ties between India and Pakistan. We should realise that both the countries should continue peace talks as dialogue is the only way to resolve issues between them. Political leaders from both countries should discuss and settle lingering issues.

It is sad that our politicians and political parties will never learn from the past. At a time when we should be united and give a befitting reply to Pakistan, our leaders are busy scoring political points. This will affect the morale of our jawans. War is not a solution but any violation of the ceasefire should be reciprocated strongly and firmly.

This refers to the report Doing the write thing always (The Buzz, August 06). The report is factually incorrect. It is clarified that a written leave application was sent for the defence minister’s approval, as has been the practice. No verbal request was made.

Hindustan Times correspondent replies: The defence ministry advised Air Headquarters to give written details about Air Chief NAK Browne’s two-day personal stay in the US beyond his four-day official trip last month. The correspondent stands by the report.
