Good neighbours

Not to be left behind in good neighbourliness, Harpreet Singh has written in today’s The Statesman about Gen Musharraf’s proposal for an “out-of-the-box” solution to the Kashmir conflict.

He writes:

Pakistan should thank its stars for not being situated next to Israel. Faced with the kind of misbehaviour India has been living with, the latter would have gifted Pakistan a time machine much before the idea appeared in any book or movie and sent it straight to the Stone Age.

You don’t speak for me Mr Harpreet Singh! I do not believe in harbouring or expressing such views. They are simply not conducive to good relations with one’s neighbours. This kind of talk, injurious to the dignity of the citizens of Pakistan, is ugly and uncivilised. We can do without super-patriots like you Mr Singh!
