A silent storm is gathering in South Asia. Lately all major powers (USA, UK, France, China, Russia and Germany) of the world were so absorbed in Iran’s growing nuclear program that they seemed oblivious to a grave issue. Relations between India and Pakistan have always been fragile and they are both in a race to attain nuclear superiority over each other. Both nations have not signed the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty. A hefty sum from their budget is extracted for nuclear advancement and they even get foreign aid for these programs. With Iran has restrictions on its nuclear progress, Pakistan is the only Muslim country in Asia which is equipped with nuclear weapons without any constraints. US will try harder to deter any nuclear furtherance agenda in Pakistan.
