Pak's intention is doubtful
The verdict of the court of law is absolutely based on the evidences provided by the party. As Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh has already said that trust deficit is the biggest problem with Pakistan,it is not that only but the deliberate devilry of Pakistani military establishment and its notorious Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) that make the atmosphere amidst the two neighbours inimical. The question here is who is responsible for this trust deficit? Is it the government of Pakistan or the people? The answer is very easy and simple. The government of Pakistan is solely responsible for the trust deficit existing between the two countries if people to people contact exercise is anything to go by. The People of Pakistan are in favour of good and friendly relations with India. It is the Pak government which is instrumental in allowing the terrorists under pressure from its military to use its territory for fanning terrorism and creating mayhem in India. If the evidences about the role of Jammat-ud-Dawa boss Hafiz Saeed as mastermind of Mumbai attack supplied by India to Pakistan were handed over to Federal and Punjab government, they would have produced them before the Supreme court. As they failed to produce proper evidences before the Supreme Court of Pakistan that their appeals were dismissed outright by the court.Federal and Punjab governments had filed appeals challenging the release of JuD chief Hafiz Muhammed Saeed to take meaningful action to address India's concerns under pressure from international community to hoodwink India once more. India has already given enough evidences to Pakistan on the role and activities of Saeed in Mumbai attack and other anti-India campaign.Saeed (60), also the founder of the banned LeT, was put under house arrest in December 2008 in the wake of the Mumbai attacks after the UN Security Council declared the JuD a front for the Lashkar-e-Taiba.After he challenged his detention in the Lahore High Court, Saeed was freed on June 2 last year by a three-judge bench that said the Punjab and federal governments had failed to provide sufficient evidence to keep him in custody.Following pressure from India and the international community, the federal and Punjab governments challenged the High Court’s ruling in the apex court. New Delhi has been demanding action against him for his involvement.Pakistan has been maintaining as it has done in the past umpteen times that India has not provided any evidence that will allow authorities to act against Saeed.The Indian leadership’s disappointment over people like Saeed roaming freely in Pakistan is apt and natural.To relay on Pakistan that it would make well-intentioned effort to improve relations with India by acting against and reining in terrorists operate from its territory against India is nothing but sheer foolishness. Pakistan's effort to open chain of comminactions with India is to show the international community to show that it intends to establish good neighbourly relation. India must not rely on Pak assurances and always keeps its security full-proof in place to face any eventualities from across the border.
