Pakistan’s gain

274

IN my last article, I had critiqued Pakistan’s India policy. Taking our officialdom’s belief that Indian Prime Minister Modi is trying to isolate Pakistan at face value, I explained that his ability to do so derives from (i) his country’s growing power differential vis-à-vis Pakistan; and (ii) the world’s support to Delhi ahead of Islamabad. Given the respective trajectories and international standing of the two sides, the longer Pakistan resists thinking and acting ‘outside the box’, the more India will gain on both counts.
