A game of accusations
A game of allegations is being played between India and Kabul on one hand and Pakistan on the other, says a leading Pak daily.india Updated: Feb 09, 2006 16:07 IST
The game of accusations and counter accusations between India and Pakistan, it seems, would never rest in peace.
Going by the recent editorial in Daily Times, it seems that now Afghanistan has also checked-in, thereby completing the triangle of accusations.
"There seems to be a game of mutual accusations being played between Afghanistan and India and one hand and Pakistan on the other," the paper says.
The fact that India has been charging about the Pak-sponsored terrorism in Kashmir is now a passé. What is new is that now Pakistan has started to complain an Indian hand in Balochistan unrest.
As for Kabul, Ghani says that the deteriorating security situation in the region was "partly a spill-over from Afghanistan due to weakness of Hamid Karzai's government.
Afghanistan, like India, is also accused of supplying arms and ammunitions to the tribal warlords.
Mentioning that the claims by both sides may be true, the editorial however, goes on to attack the international community for its sceptical attitude towards Pakistan.
"Unfortunately, while both sides may be speaking the truth about the other, the international community is inclined to be increasingly sceptical about what Pakistan says."
Spotting the lacunae, the paper editorialises: "The problem is that infiltration into Afghanistan and India may be proved overtly, while Pakistan simply points to a covert movement of money and weapons.
