NEW Delhi, which does not rule out recourse to military action, needs to take note of the resolution passed by the All Parties Conference on Tuesday, which affirms the nation's commitment to stand united against any aggressive move, while it also supports good neighbourly relations with India through a meaningful dialogue. In a rare display of unity, leaders of political and religious parties from all over the country put their weight behind the government and armed forces. The resolution also notes that the people of Pakistan share the grief of the people of India and extend their sympathies to the relatives of the victims. Those who passed the resolution have, however, taken strong exception to unsubstantiated and hasty allegations by India against Pakistan, saying these could harm relations. There was an agreement on the need to pursue a constructive engagement with India in a comprehensive manner with a view to building confidence and mutual trust for establishing friendly and good neighbourly relations. This alone can lead to a just resolution of disputes, including the core issue of Kashmir. The resolution is important in a number of ways. The gathering which passed it, represented the entire political spectrum: left, right and centre. In view of the strong political rivalries, in cases amounting to definite animosity, only a threat to the country's security could have brought all these parties together. Equally important is the presence of almost all religious parties, which clearly distanced themselves from the terrorists by condemning the horror at Mumbai. India meanwhile continues playing the blame game, which can only vitiate the atmosphere. It insists that those who launched the attack were from Pakistan, without presenting any evidence. It depends for the allegation mainly on confessions extracted by agencies from a man whose name continues to change from Kasab to Kasav to Iman. Instead of sending any solid evidence to Islamabad, New Delhi has dispatched a list of persons wanted by it. The day US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice reached India an unnamed State Department official claimed, again without evidence, that Mumbai attacks might have been the work of a group at least partly based in Pakistan. This would make many in Pakistan wonder if the diplomacy being undertaken by her avowedly to defuse tensions was impartial. It is time there was an end to wild allegations. Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has proposed the formation of a joint investigation committee, chaired by the National Security Advisers of Pakistan and India. While emphatically denying Pakistan's involvement in the Mumbai bloodshed, President Zardari told CNN's Larry King that terrorists were non-state actors operating in the entire region. He assured full cooperation in investigation, but maintained that if there was concrete evidence, Pakistan would try the accused in its courts and sentence them, if found guilty, and not hand them over to any other power. This is a reasonable approach. It is in the interest of both Pakistan and India to put an end to baseless accusations and sabre rattling.
