NEW DELHI (Agencies) - Pakistani officials are 'hypnotically obsessed with Indias military, officials in New Delhi told US officials in comments made public in a leaked US diplomatic cable released Friday by Wikileaks, reports IBN Live. The cable, released by the British newspaper The Guardian, says Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao told US Sen John Kerry earlier this year that Indo-Pakistani peace talks could not move ahead until Islamabad did more to dismantle the Pakistan-based terrorist infrastructure that New Delhi says supports anti-Indian militants. In a February 15 meeting with Senator Kerry, Rao underlined that Indo-Pakistani talks slated for February 25 enjoyed high-level support and were still on track. On Afghanistan, the Foreign Secretary cited Indian interests and criticised Pakistani attempts to exclude New Delhi from regional discussions. Rao said the GOI was 'refining its legislation on civil nuclear liability and was committed to implementing the Civil Nuclear Cooperation Agreement. Kerry noted that there was a long history of distrust to overcome. Rao said such talks cant just be switched on and India needed a climate of confidence in order to proceed to a resumption of the full dialogue. She speculated that Pakistani COAS General Kayani was likely to tell the Senator that Indias military doctrine continued to pose a threat to Pakistan and observed that the Pakistani military was hypnotically obsessed with Indias military posture. Rao urged that the US use its enormous power to encourage Pakistan to move forward in a productive way to create a positive climate for discussions. As to Kerrys suggestion of a regional approach that also involved outside powers, Rao said her instinctive reaction was that India and Pakistan needed to engage more effectively to create a level of trust that would support bilateral talks first. Meanwhile, strongly endorsing the secular and nationalistic nature of Muslims in India, the United States has acknowledged that Indias over 150 million Muslim population is largely unattracted to extremism, according to a leaked US embassy cable, reports news. Separatism and religious extremism have little appeal to Indian Muslims, and the overwhelming majority espouse moderate doctrines. In a recorded commentary, released by WikiLeaks about Indias 150 million plus Muslims, former US envoy to New Delhi David Mulford in 2005 said that Indian Muslim youth are comfortable in the mainstream and Muslim families and communities provide little sanction or support to extremist appeals. Indias vibrant democracy, inclusive culture and growing economy have made it easier for Muslim youth to find a place in the mainstream, reduced the pool of potential recruits, and the space in which extremist organisations can operate, Mulford commented about Indian Muslims.
