IT is plain commonsense not to limit oneself to uttering words. Unless they are followed up with action, words are no more than hot air and a waste of time. They could, instead, create bad blood. Foreign Minister Qureshi, who was giving an interview to Fars news agency on Sunday, rightly maintained that there was no point in holding talks with New Delhi without taking up fundamental issues. He made this point in the backdrop of the meeting recently held between the Foreign Secretaries of India and Pakistan and called upon India to change its attitude of trying to sidetrack the main issues. Finding Washington turning a blind eye to its excesses towards Islamabad, New Delhi has thought it fit to harden its stance on disputes lying unsettled with Pakistan, besides adding to its already existing challenges. It is freely blocking the river water flowing from the illegally occupied Kashmir, in utter violation of the Indus Waters Treaty, with the US that keeps swearing abiding friendship with Pakistan, remaining unconcerned. Thus, Indias hostility towards Pakistan, which to the subcontinent watchers was never in doubt, has come out in the open. It is now trying to dictate its terms about what it wants to talk about with Pakistan, and terrorism, currently being the most dreaded bogey of the West, is the only issue it is harping on. Discussing its policy of state terrorism unashamedly adopted to subdue the people of Kashmir, and towards Pakistan through the stoppage of its lifeline - water - has become anathema to it. It is incumbent on the international community, particularly the US, to make India see reason and not pamper it by ignoring such vital issues concerning Pakistan. Unless the composite dialogue process is resumed and a purposeful discussion is held we should refuse to take part in any talks. Only a just solution of Kashmir that lies at the root of other issues could put an end to the mutual enmity between the two neighbours.
