There are parts of Balochistan that are claimed by Afghanistan, Can you please elaborate on that? For the last several years we have not really been able to find an answer to the use of asymmetrical warfare by Pakistan which is engaging in cross-border terrorism against India; something which Pakistan thinks is ‘low-risk and high gain’ strategy Now as they have nuclear weapon capability they believe that the threat of retaliation with India is far less and that it has inhibited India from reacting to such provocation from Pakistan In a situation like that of the Mumbai terror attack the leadership appears to have only two options: One is military retaliation which has a danger of escalating to nuclear war or two not doing anything at all except calling off dialogue and condemning the attack This is not deterrence at all You need something between the two ends of this spectrum: One being only a rhetorical response and two being a risky and potentially dangerous military response So you should have a number of pressure points which used singly or in combination can be used to deter the other side in engaging in provocative behaviour and to make it clear to them that there will be a cost of following such a policy The idea is that you should have a more diversified kind of diplomatic toolkit that is placed between these two extremes There should be a number of pressure points that could be deployed to change the strategic calculus in Pakistan These pressures points may act as a kind of deterrence against Pakistan Therefore you have to look at what can be the possible vulnerabilities on Pakistan’s side Balochistan (where there have been very serious human rights violations) or PoK can be built as pressure points against Pakistan by drawing international attention to it This is what I meant by saying why we should try to change their strategic calculus But of course there is a difference between the Balochistan issue and PoK issue PoK issue is a sovereignty issue It is about this territory that belongs to India and should be returned to India and should be under Indian sovereignty So this is a different situation Since 1971 there seem to have been an assumption that the LoC could eventually become an international boundary We have not actually pressed our claim to PoK with any degree of vigour or any degree of application because at the back of our minds there has been this thought that we are going to settle for LoC as aninternational boundary This has not been changed despite the assurance given in 1971 by Bhutto which was never kept Soon it became clear that there was no such intention on part of the Pakistan leadership But even after this became clear we did not go back to our original stand Even though formally our stand is that the whole of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India but in our practical diplomacy we have not been assertive that this territory must return to India We did not take practical steps to assert our claim to this region This is a sovereignty issue and can very well become a pressure point Now we can begin with the process of highlighting our claim to this region reaching out to the people of this region who in a sense are Indian citizens The other aspect is that in Balochistan we are not questioning the territorial aspect but drawing attention to human rights violations which could be another pressure point How effective this assumed equivalence between Kashmir issue and that of Balochistan will be for India The point is how consistent you are with this particular part of your policy in the future If it is a one-off response then obviously it would not have much impact This is an important step forward if this is something which becomes part of your projection in the future We have made statements regarding Balochistan earlier but we did not follow up on that therefore it has not been effective It should not be that if relationship with Pakistan improves we drop it After all when relationship with Pakistan improves Pakistan does not drop Kashmir issue So this is a question of how consistent we are in this respect What can be the major ‘pressure points’ that can be used in relation to Pakistan Balochistan is itself a pressure point Having a more assertive position on return of Gilgit-Baltistan and what Pakistan calls Azad Kashmir can be the pressure points We already have a very close relationship with Afghanistan strengthening that relationship; giving it a higher security dimension can be a pressure point too Raising the issue of terrorism in international fora can be another There are number of things each may not be a big thing but taken together can have an impact You have also talked about the existence of many imponderables What are the most pressing ones When we are talking about Balochistan or talking about the return of PoK to India and if we intend to raise it to a higher profile in terms of our diplomacy then it also has implications beyond just the bilateral?
