Very telling of the situation in Pakistan. The rhetoric indicates that the Govt has no control over the affairs of Pakistan. On the one hand, the GoP is engaging India in talks at Thimphu, while on the other hand, the lunatic fringe, which has clout over the population, is spewing fire and brimstone and going ballistic!! What is important to note is that a confident Nation or a person, quietly goes about achieving the aim, while the one who is shaky and fear crazed thunders to drown the fear generated accelerated heart beat sound!! If Jihad is the answer, it is already on in Kashmir and failing miserably. Therefore, what is the new Jihad? Can Jihad, as explained in the Holy Book, keep re-inventing itself to suit a deranged man's earthly whims? This man should seriously understand what Jihad means and not misuse a holy tenet for his worldly purpose to stay relevant! To imagine that Pakistan will survive after a N War indicates that this poor man and his followers should leave statecraft to those who know it and he should return to his Holy Book and prepare for his tryst with his Maker. That would be more fruitful. One wonders what is the way out. One wonders who is relevant, the govt, the Army or the religious loons? Who should one parley with?
