Let us go slow with Pakistan

The second democratically elected in Pakistan has been welcomed by all democratic countries of the world particularly India. Since we had been facing extreme hostility from our neighbouring country under various Governments , the election of Nawaz Sharif as Prime Minister of Pakistan has raised many positive hopes in India. Nawaz Sharif is known to be an ardent supporter of peaceful normalisation of relations with India which he has publicly pronounced many times.

We are an emotional nation and are swayed by the words on its face value. Just a day after Nawaz Shrif took the oath of Office as Prime Minister of Pakistan, the Pak army resorted to heavy shelling across the LOC and our one Jawan was martyred in this unprovoked firing. It is perhaps a clear signal to India that Nawaz Shrif cannot act alone and Army still controls the country. We should,therefore, give breathing time to the Pak Prime Minister to evaluate his standing in the country vis-a-vis Army,ISI and the Mullahs. We have always extended hand of friendship to Pakistan which has been responded by firing on the border, infiltrations and terror attacks. So let us follow a go slow policy.
