Without interrogating Kasaab, who was in Indian custody all this while, Rehman Malik had boasted that as a result of his investigation, he could authoritatively say that the mastermind of Mumbai carnage was linked to Laskar-e-Taiba and the financiers and facilitators were all Pakistanis. He proved the Indian dossier right, down to the last details. India, naturally, wants us to do more now. We also showed indecent haste in trying to appease India during Mr. Holbrooke's visit to Islamabad. As an aside, one was surprised he was not honored with a civil award? -FATIMA OMAR, Mardan, via e-mail, February 15.
