INDIAN External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna is scheduled to use the UN General Assembly as well as the upcoming Commonwealth Summit to try drumming up support for the Indian position on last year's Mumbai attacks, that they were Pakistan-sponsored, and that Pakistan has not done enough to help India punish the culprits. At the UN, India has accepted over 30 invitations for meetings, where it is expected to push this message, even though it is against the facts, which show Indian refusal to share all the facts with Pakistan or answer its many queries, and India's insistence that Hafiz Saeed, whom it accuses of involvement, be tried, even though it has not provided evidence for trial. Mr Krishna will thus spend two major occasions making trouble for Pakistan. Only if his audiences are willing will he succeed, because India's stance has so many contradictions, and it is so obvious that India wishes to use the Mumbai attacks to avoid talks with Pakistan, which the world at large wants, on all issues, including Kashmir. Mr Krishna has a thankless task, undertaken for the Hindu nationalist lobby his government represents, of defying world opinion at multilateral fora.
