Crocodile tears, once again

Pakistan has once again rejected Indian complaint about involvement of its hand in the serial blasts that took place in Delhi on Saturday last. Its Foreign office spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam said unless India shares evidence with Pakistan, it is merely an allegation “which cannot be accepted”.

The argument sounds logical but what if Pakistan refuses to take note of evidences produced in other cases earlier or refuses to cooperate in bringing the culprits to book. That unfortunately is the case now. A country that has provided shelter to a person like Dawood Ibrahim, the man behind the Bombay serial blasts, can not convincingly claim to be acting against terrorists. It is one thing to hoodwink the world community and quite another to act on ground.

Tasnim Aslam has taken the queue from Pakistan President General Musharraf who called up Prime Minster Dr. Manmohan Singh to convey his condolences on the killing of innocent people in the blasts. The General even offered full cooperation with India in any probe in nabbing the persons responsible for it. But it failed to cut ice.
