Pakistan started with big promises in the name of Allah.As ironywould have it, the founding father M.A.Jinnah was a secular statesman.Then came others who flaunted Islam to further their prospects. The common thread is the dominance of the army.Elected prime ministers were either weak or puppets. When they did assert , they were pushed into oblivion of death or exile.
Pakistan is perceived to be a strategic partner to contain communism, now terrorism.All the time the ruling junta has been playing the islamic card and getting the best of both worlds.
China has had a role to play for its own reasons.America, one feels,has to fear pakistan more than anyother nation. It has been guilty of nuclear proliferation, waging holy wars through proxies and keeping Kashmir issue at sizzling point.
It is time India baiters in us see the democratic power in sympathetic light and drop their pressure tactics on the new nuclear deal.
the world has nothing tofear from India. Much less its immediate neighbour Pakistan.This needs to be mentioned because the army in pakistan is usint this as a pretext to feather theirnest.
jinnah was more secular
