During their recent meeting in Russia, the Indian prime minister bluntly told President Asif Zardari that Pakistan needed to do more to stop terrorism and to bring to book the alleged perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks. Our president should have responded by telling Dr Singh that New Delhi needed to stop helping terrorists in Pakistan and that it needed to close its consulates in Afghanistan. He should have also told him that terrorism in Indian-held Kashmir can be contained only if Indian troops stop their atrocities and the people of Kashmir are allowed to determine their own future in accordance with UN resolutions.
