The grey list is normally meant to force governments into tightening their legal regimes against money laundering and terrorist financing in order to get off it. But for Pakistan, it has become a way to indefinitely escape the blacklist." External link

Husain Haqqani writes : “So Muslim League politicians, supported by senior Muslim officers of the Pakistan army, organised a tribal lashkar (militia) drawn from the areas bordering Afghanistan. The lashkar’s invasion of Kashmir provided justification for the Indian army to land in Jammu and Kashmir, ostensibly after a panicked maharaja signed the Instrument of Accession on 26 October 1947. Pakistan has contested that accession ever since” External link

Husain Haqqani writes : “India’s role in helping Bangladesh win independence, including the role of R&AW, is well documented. Equally well documented is the ill-treatment of Bengalis by Pakistan’s Punjab-based leaders, which paved the way for plans by R&AW’s founding chief, Rameshwar Nath Kao, to train and equip the Bangladesh liberation army, the Mukti Bahini. The lesson to be learned from the Bangladesh war should have been to avoid creating disgruntled citizens who might become insurgents trained by a hostile neighbour” External link

Husain Haqqani said ( about Hafiz Saeed ) : “I believe that it would be better if India and Pakistan should first try to be friends and then talk about their disagreements.
