Somebody speaks the truth aloud. Dr Farooq Hassan, the only lawyer to have served as advisor to four Prime Ministers of Pakistan and a leading jurist says:
A military government can never solve the problems with India, including Kashmir. Because if they do it, the reason of their existence disappears. Pakistan has the fifth or sixth largest army in the world and it is not there to fight either Iran, China or Russia.
I don’t see a merger of Pakistan back into India possible anymore though I still would like to think that us people can do it if we build up enough momentum. Military or political decimation of any other type of the smaller country is an impossibility of course.
