AS evidence of Indian involvement in sponsoring terrorism in Pakistan, whether it is FATA, Balochistan or another part of the country, has continued to multiply, the Interior Minister's accusatory finger can no longer be termed as Islamabad's mere knee-jerk reaction against its arch enemy. Mr Rehman Malik has, in fact, mentioned in public statements that the security agencies have recovered arms and equipment of Indian origin from the terrorist hideouts, found other evidence of New Delhi's role in fomenting trouble in the country and asserted that all this constituted solid proof of its culpability. Only on Wednesday, he said, four trucks laden with Indian arms were seized in Bara, Khyber Agency. Reports also indicate that the Interior Ministry has kept the Foreign Ministry posted with these developments. Again, COAS General Kayani apparently took up the matter with US Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mullen, as he, in turn, has confirmed that he conveyed Pakistan's concerns to the past as well as the present Indian Army Chiefs. Yet, strangely, Islamabad has not raised the issue with New Delhi at the official level, since in the eyes of Foreign Minister Qureshi, the evidence so far available is not good enough for the case to proceed to its logical end in a court of law. One would have wished that he had kept in mind the hullabaloo the Indians created, accusing Pakistan of involvement in the Mumbai tragedy without proffering any tangible evidence, and then discussed the matter with his cabinet colleague and the security agencies before going public. Indeed, his counsel about keeping sentiments aside is highly regrettable in the light of hundreds of lives that have been lost to terrorism. It tends to suggest that Mr Malik's charge is a response to his feelings rather than facts. Admiral Mullen, who was responding to questions by a private TV channel, was right as he observed that the resolution of the Kashmir dispute and the reduction of tension between India and Pakistan would make for stability in the region. Being the two big players on the scene, they can, working in an understanding and cooperative relationship, contribute a great deal towards dealing with militancy and bring hope of a happy and prosperous future to a large mass of humanity inhabiting the subcontinent. Given the present state of distrust between them, President Obama would need to act on his inner feelings that he gave vent to while campaigning for the White House and to solve the issue playing the role of the leader of the world.
