Could you please explain the highlighted part! Why is a volatile Pakistan not in India's interest? Does that mean a stable Pakistan is in India's interest? How so? Then again, what is stability? How do you define a stable Pakistan? Plz dont say that the terrorists/taliban/JeM/Let/......etc are more anti-indian then ISI/PA. ISI/PA have only one agenda of 'flying a green flag over red fort', while taliban has dreams of 'global war'. So, if the terrorists take over, then the rest of the world will come under the same kind of attack that India has been seeing for decades now. That should really wake up the world(I mean US). While ISI/PA would divert all their resources to fund terrorism of all kinds(religious, economic.....etc) in India. Taliban would have greater goals and hene India would be a small part of their plan. Thus, heat would be off India. And finally, if the taliban or someother terrorists take over Pakistan officially, then all the pretensions would end and world(US) would be forced to deal with the problem with some honesty. Right now, we have ISI/PA in power in Pakistan who are no better than taliban but they disguise themselves and hence get away with all the mayhem they have created in Afghanistan, Indian and also in Pakistan.
