Right Approach


Instead of giving statements against the rogue nation Pakistan with regard to its inaction in context with taking head on the terror mongers, the approach adopted by the Indian Government to ask its western neighbour for extraditing Hafiz Saeed, the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

Saeed is wanted in for his involvement in various terror attacks, including the 2008 Mumbai terror strike. This nuanced strategy aims to pursue matters through proper channels, and the Indian authorities believe it will have positive repercussions. The current approach places Pakistan in a challenging position, as it must provide reasons and justification for supporting an individual involved in terror activities when responding to the community.

It is pertinent to mention that reportedly a request along with certain documents seeking the extradition of the aforesaid terror monger proscribed terrorist even by the UN has been sent to Islamabad recently. The action taken by India is precisely perfect because the country need not to hide anything in this context and whatever is expected from Pakistan should be made public worldwide to mount pressure on the unprincipled country which is pursuing anti-India agenda as its policy and has brazenly waged the proxy war against India. In the aforesaid case, one could say that the diplomacy forms the bedrock of international relations, where clear and unambiguous communication plays a pivotal role in fostering warm ties.

In this context, India should go for explicit communication with Pakistan to make the picture about relations clear. India, as a major regional player, stands to gain by articulating its expectations from Pakistan in black and white. Such an approach aligns with the principles of transparency and accountability that define successful diplomatic engagements. Clear communication allows India to delineate its expectations regarding key issues, be it extradition of the aforesaid terrorist, cross-border terrorism, territorial disputes, etc.

By explicitly stating its stance, India can provide Pakistan with a roadmap for constructive dialogue and resolution, fostering an conducive to meaningful collaboration, and in the case of Saeed it has taken a perfect stand by seeking his extradition.

Ambiguities in diplomatic communication can lead to misinterpretations, creating unnecessary hurdles in bilateral relations. By adopting a black-and-white approach in the case of Saeed, India has mitigated the risk of misunderstanding, paving the way for a more stable and predictable diplomatic environment although the ball is in Pakistan's court now and if that country is seriously interested in creating cordial relations, it should readily handover terrorist Saeed to India because deteriorating ties with neighbouring country for the sake of a terrorist is no prudency.
