MANHATTAN, KS, US: This is with reference to your editorial of October 6 titled “Ties between Kabul and New Delhi”. Pakistan wishes to move Afghanistan back to the Stone Age by installing a pro-Pakistan Taliban/Haqqani network regime, with mandatory burqas, ban on female education, public stoning, and oppression of women.
India, however, is helping build Afghanistan’s infrastructure, training its security forces, providing economic assistance, and setting up schools and hospitals there. Pakistan can never help Afghanistan the way India is doing. India should step in to fill the void when America leaves in 2013.
Pakistan has no right to destroy another nation (Afghanistan) to suit its purpose. It better learn to deal with this.
