Sixty-seven years have passed since independence but Pakistan and India have been unable to resolve the issues that mar their relations and give them the unenviable position of hostile neighbours

 

What will be the future of Indo-Pak relations under Modi’s administration? How will Modi, with his Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) background and Hindutva leanings, figure in the conduct of Indian foreign policy? Does Pakistan have the appropriate diplomacy to counter Modi’s drive for Indian supremacy in the region? Do present assertive trends of Indian policy portend the likelihood of an aggressive outcome during Modi’s tenure? These questions were haunting the general public and intellectual elite of Islamabad prior to the 16th Lok Sabha elections 2014
