ISLAMABAD The recent Indian move to use Afghanistan to unleash terrorism in Pakistan will remain to be the bone of contention on the eve of arrival of Afghanistans President Hamid Karzai in Pakistan. One of the major motives of his visit will be to convince Pakistani government regarding handover of captured militants. The beleaguered Afghan President who is scheduled to land here today does not have much to justify his governments policies in the wake of growing outrage in Pakistan about the presence of covert detention centres primarily set up to serve Indian interests, a key factor that reasons Indias reluctance towards Pakistans military role in Afghanistan. Diplomatic circles see Afghan Presidents standing on the defensive side after Pakistan has deprived him of any rationale to harp on his ages-old rhetoric of blaming Pakistan for terrorism in Afghanistan. The capture of over two dozens top militants hailing from Al-Qaeda has led Pakistan to take Afghan leadership on a tougher note. Given that dozens of detention centres are being run in Afghanistan (the number being unspecified), apparently by NATO and ISAF, not less than 30 belong to Indians that are sponsoring terrorism in Pakistan. Sometimes back, a credible Afghan diplomat had expressed his outrage when asked by this scribe, during an informal meeting, about the motives of over three dozens Indian consulates in Afghanistan. Pakistani media can take a button and sew a vest on it Some of you say there are 11 consulates, others say their number exceeds 48 but let me make it clear that we dont have to hide even if there are a hundred Indian consulates in Afghanistan. There are only three by the way, he had said. The diplomat had minced no words to state that India was a friendly country to Afghanistan and Afghan government valued its economic and political association with India while denying that the government he represented was in any sort of military alliance with India. The same diplomat now refuses to speak on the issue. Another inter-related aspect is the insistence of Afghan government to extradite the militants apprehended by Pakistani authorities over the last few weeks, the reason being that these militants were playing 'double game by serving the interests of Afghanistan and India simultaneously. Realising that handing over of the captured militants to US in the past was a mistake, Pakistani authorities are now adamant to interrogate the miscreants without involving Americans. The refusal of extradition of the captured militants has much to do with the strong possibilities of divulgence of some key details from the militants that could well establish that India was using Afghanistan against Pakistan and US-sponsored detention centres were there to destabilise Pakistan. Making sense of the setbacks that Indo-Afghan alliance has received after Indian ties with the militants working against Pakistan had been ascertained, Pakistan needs to make maximum of the situation by pushing Afghanistan into a reality check to stop blame game against Pakistan. Punjab Government and Interior Minister Rehman Malik have blatantly pointed fingers at India for terrorist incidents in Pakistan with Malik saying that weaponry being used to destabilise Pakistan were coming from Afghanistan. Aggressive diplomacy at this point serves the best interests of Pakistan. The country has to do away with its submissive posture towards US and India if it intends to come out as a gainer from prevailing situation.
