Pakistan’s redemption

Between boot and Book

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Today’s dose of good writing comes from India Today’s S Prasannarajan (linkthanks PD):

India may be its most immediate victim, but the inherent bestiality of Pakistan should not be a worry for India alone. Our victimhood is accentuated by our accumulated mistakes of pussyfooting on—or even romancing— the General and our diplomatic triangulations. Today, the lofty rhetoric of reform-the-society is the most audible suggestion for Pakistan’s redemption. It makes no sense when the society itself is trapped between the jackboot of the General and the tyranny of the Book. [India Today]
