Author:Ahmad Tariq Karim
Publication:Contemporary South Asia / Routledge, part of the Taylor & Francis Group
Enumeration:Vol. 10, No. 1 / March 1, 2001, pp.: 131 - 149
Abstract:This article appears in the Viewpoint section - a neutral forum in which prominent South Asian are able to present full and frank views on particular issues affecting the future of the region and its people - of Contemporary South Asia. In this issue, H.E. (Retired) Ahmad Tariq Karim, the former Bangladesh High Commissioner to South Africa, Ambassador to Iran, and Additional Foreign Secretary for Asia and SAARC, outlines the recurrent failure of successive Pakistan governments, particularly its military regimes, to grasp the need to settle its long-running dispute with India over Kashmir. He describes how the selfish corporate mindset of the Pakistan military establishment ultimately may lead to a potential nuclear confrontation with India. Karim concludes by urging the international community in general, and SAARC in particular, to deploy measures that would encourage the return of democracy to Pakistan as soon as possible.
