Indo-Pak ties- past & future 29 May, 2011
Satish Chandra a former diplomat & veteran __________ mentioned one interesting incidence happened with Mr. B. K. Nehru (ICS officer) in 1948, when the latter was in the Pakistan for financial negotiations. During his stay at Pakistan, Mr. Nehru came across very extreme anti-Indian article in Daily “The Dawn”.

Pakistan has been governed by people elected as well as military in the past. But, except the small period of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto all the people elected governments are not truly democratic in the sense that actually controlled by military & ISI. After losing two wars Pakistani army is in no mood to soften their stand on India. Under first military rule of Gen. Zia –Ul- Haq, terror war got started

    PAK AFGHAN RELATIONS Introduction 1. Relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan have remained estranged mainly due to Afghanistan’s revanchist claim made about Pakistan’s western province and its non-recognition of the Durand Line as the international border. With a hostile India to the East, Pakistan can ill-afford another irredentist neighbor. Since 1947 both countries have interfered in each other’s domestic affairs. The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan forced Pakistan to wage a proxy war in Afghanistan…
