A resolution has been moved in the US House of Representatives condemning the Pakistani blasphemy law and expressing sorrow at the murder of Shahbaz Bhatti and Salman Taseer. However, the resolution relates both killings to the support of the murdered men for Asya Bibi, the Christian woman whose death sentence for blasphemy both opposed, and further stresses the need for religious freedom in Pakistan. The resolution not only represents an unwarranted interference in the affairs of Pakistan, but also intends keeping alive of the blasphemy issue. The West does not want Pakistan to punish the blasphemous. It also takes an unhealthy interest in the death of Pakistanis which it would not otherwise take. It should be kept in mind that no US Congressman would have shown any interest in the state of religious freedom in Pakistan had the blasphemy law not been involved. The draft resolution also expresses an untoward lack of confidence in Pakistani investigative agencies and courts, in not leaving them to detect the killers (in the second case, the killer having identified himself in the first) and punish them. The resolution should not be viewed as an isolated action. It reflects the unhealthy interest shown by American official institutions in the internal affairs of Pakistan, something in which they have been encouraged by the complaisant attitude of successive Pakistani governments, including the present. It also represents a route along which Pakistan is to be taken again, which will lead to the stopping of US aid. Despite Pakistans cooperation in the USAs war on terror, it still sticks in Indias craw that Pakistan not only exists, but is also the worlds only Muslim nuclear power. As the USA is bent on helping India in achieving its regional ambitions so that it will act as a regional counterweight against China, it will use any weapon it can to damage Pakistan, even though it cannot fight its war on terror without Pakistan. Pakistan must start its efforts at the diplomatic level, and its Washington embassy must make clear both to the Obama Administration and to US Congressional leaders that if the resolution comes to a vote, that will be viewed as a hostile act, as will all Congressmen voting in its favour. It must also realize the gulf in worldview between the two peoples is too great to be bridged. The Pakistan government must accept that it cannot continue an alliance that is too fraught with differences to last. By ending the alliance with the USA, the government will not only be doing something popular, but also carrying out the inevitable.
