The charade of Indian MSM discussing the India


Pakistan engagement in a typically shrill and
surcharged manner is nothing new, but the
discourse plummeted to such abysmal depths of
navt and stupidity that one really wondered
whetherwhetherIQofourpremierjournalistshas
just evaporated or is driven so much by personal
agendasthatallsenseofperspectivehasbeenlost.
ContrastthiswithreportinginthePakistanmedia.
They seem to have got a far better measure of
IndiandiplomacythantheIndians.Alltheirmajor
newspapers highlighted the success of India's
diplomacy after the PM Modi visited UAE and
brought off a diplomatic coup with remarkable
dexterity. A Pakistani news service carried the
headline "Modi steps into the wedge between
PakistanandUAE".AllthePaknewspaperscarried
balanced account of PM Modi's new diplomacy of
connecting India from Far East to UAE and even
Iran and Israel. They highlighted his statement
madewithsteelyflourishthatIndiawouldmoveon
with, without or despite those who don't care to
joinin.Nobodycouldmissthereference.Pakistan

Giventhisbackground,Ifinditextremelynaveon
partofourbignamesofjournalismtoentirelymiss
the point that talks between India and Pakistan
wouldactuallyhavebeenabigrewardtoPakistan
and India loses nothing if the talks are called off.
US, Afghanistan, Iran, UAE, Saudi Arabia, and
Central Asia are all tilting against Pakistan and
therefore, India has no reason to reward Pakistan
with talks at this point. Ufa was a brilliant gambit
bythePM.Itcouldbeturnedintoasuccessonlyby
someone who had an accurate understanding of
howthingswouldpanoutaftertheUfadeclaration.
It happened exactly as scripted. Credit for this
would go to Jaishankar, not Doval. It's a brilliant
and emphatic diplomatic victory. Jaishankar
understood exactly what the reaction would be
fromthePakArmy.HeunderstoodthatPakArmy
has all the levers but their understanding of
diplomacy is of the sledgehammer variety, not the
silken variety. So what would the Pak Army do
exactly what it did. It was such a nobrainer that
when we see our experts and journalists shouting
themselves hoarse and lamenting the collapse of
talks, they fail to realise that India has pushed
Pakistan into exactly the place it wanted to. Ask
Christine Fair who has been saying right since the
day Ufa declaration was made that talks reward
Pakistanandenablethemtoperpetuatethecycleof
terrortalkterror.NoclearerarticulationofIndia's
position has been made in decades the way it was
donebytheEAMSwarajtoday,whobroughthome
thedistinctionbetweentalksanddialogue.
So to summarise. India's push with UAE, USA's
refusal to certify Pakistan's sincerity in disrupting
terror networks in Afghanistan, Afghanistan Vice
President'sthreattoattackmilitantsheltersacross
the Durand Line are all part of a pattern. Expect
Pakistan to come unstuck very soon. Of course,
there will be the usual Pakistan response on the
LOCandthroughactivationoftheirgoodterrorist
networks.Nothingnewthere.
