    Bangladesh envoy to India has attacked Pakistani army, saying its “selfish corporate mindset” may lead to a nuclear confrontation with India, a view endorsed by BJP leader LK Advani.

    In his latest blog posting, Advani quotes a pamphlet written by high commissioner Ahmad Tariq Karim to say that in “its obsession with matching India tit-for-tat in missiles and nuclear race”, Pakistan has “failed to address more fundamental problems related to societal development within its own orders, and has gone pretty nigh bankrupt in the process”.
    Advani mentions a recent meeting with Bangladesh envoy Ahmad Tariq Karim who later sent him a 19-page pamphlet written by him on Pakistan.

    In the pamphlet, Karim cites seven “deadly sins” of Pakistan which were responsible for the political problems and weak democracy in the neighbouring country.

    These, according to Karim, are doctrines of Islamic invincibility over Hindus, West Pakistani superiority over inferior Bengalis (Bangladeshis), its indispensability as a strategic ally of the US, too much emphasis on relations with China and Iran, a belief that majority of Kashmiris want to join Pakistan, and that defence of East Pakistan lay in the plains of Punjab (Pakistan).

    Agreeing with the views, Advani said, “In totality this pamphlet adds up to a very perceptive summing up of all that has gone wrong with Pakistan in the three score years since its foundation.”

    He further adds, “In the preamble to this pamphlet Karim warns that the selfish corporate mindset of the Pakistan military establishment ultimately may lead to a nuclear confrontation with India.”

    Karim’s paper also makes a plea to the international community in general and to Saarc in particular to deploy measures that would encourage the return of democracy to Pakistan as soon as possible.

    Selfish Pakistan army may spark nuclear war with India: Bangladesh envoy

    NEW DELHI: In one of his publications which he presented to BJP leader LK Advani last week, Bangladeshi high commissioner to India Ahmed Tariq Karim attacked the Pakistan army saying its "selfish corporate" interests may spark off a nuclear confrontation with India.

    In the 19-page document, excerpts from which have been displayed by Advani on his blog, Karim said the armed standoff between India and Pakistan over Kashmir was "inevitably enlarged by the Pakistan military into a permanent security threat to the newly established Muslim nation".

    "While the Indian leadership, despite the conflict with Pakistan, chose the path of democracy and invested in strengthening their democratic and civic institutions, the political leadership of Pakistan used Kashmir as the reason for embarking on the road to authoritarian governance," Karim said.

    "Ironically, in the process, they sowed the seeds for their own displacement by the very institution that was normally meant to be the guardian of their security," he added in the pamphlet titled 'Pakistan: Stalking Armageddon?'

    According to Karim, Pakistan in its obsession with matching India tit-for-tat in missiles and the nuclear race, has "failed to address more fundamental problems related to societal development within its own orders, and has gone pretty nigh bankrupt in the process".

    In the pamphlet, Karim cited seven "deadly sins" of Pakistan which were responsible for the political problems and weak democracy in the neighbouring country.

    These, according to Karim, were doctrines of Islamic invincibility over Hindus, West Pakistani superiority over inferior Bengalis (Bangladeshis), its indispensability as a strategic ally of the US, too much emphasis on relations with China and Iran, a belief that majority of Kashmiris want to join Pakistan, and that defence of East Pakistan lay in the plains of Punjab (Pakistan).
