Thank you Mr Hamid Karzai for enlightening us in an interview with official television channel that Indian presence in Afghanistan for development purposes would not, in any manner, harm Pakistan. We are grateful for your advice that we should be happy to know that New Delhi has opened a dozen of consulate offices along Pak-Afghan border despite the fact that only a very small Indian community lives in Afghanistan. But what is cruel is the fact that you are expecting us to be happy and celebrate Indian presence including its troops and intelligence operators so close to our territory. But what is highly objectionable are your double standards. You talk something entirely different when you come to visit us in Islamabad and the moment you return to Kabul, you act as an Indian stooge who is out to justify whatever nefarious designs New Delhi has against Pakistan. Mr President you must keep in mind that post NATO and ISAF pull-out, it should be Pakistan that you and your nation should look for your countrys stability and well-being of your people and not India. If Mr Karzai does not understand this simple scenario, it only reflects his short-sightedness and lack of political acumen. President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani, Chief of the Army Staff, Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and Interior Minister Rehman Malik visited Kabul and discussed with President Karazai future strategy once the foreign troops leave Afghanistan. But after he gets fresh briefings from New Delhi, his tune and approach undergo a strange change and he starts talking wild. It is in his and his countrys interest that he should be firm in his views otherwise people would stop taking him seriously. One positive thing that he said in his interview is that he appreciated Pakistans role in bringing peace and stability to Afghanistan. However, he blamed former president Pervez Musharraf for creating rift in Pak-Afghan bilateral relations and that it was PPP that has put these ties back on the track.
