The Pakistan High Commission has invited Kashmiri separatist leaders to its mission here on July 21 to celebrate Eid Milan at the end of holy month of Ramzan.

Pakistan High Commission sources said it has been an usual practice to invite the Kashmiri separatist leaders on such occasions.

Earlier, the High Commission had scheduled the dinner for July 4 but later it was postponed to July 21.

While Pakistani officials maintain that it was postponed due to some deaths in Karachi but the move was seen here by many as an attempt to avoid any bitterness ahead of talks between Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif in Russian city of Ufa.

In August last year, India had called off talks between Foreign Secretaries of the two countries, strongly objecting to consultations Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit had with the Kashmiri separatist leaders.

Modi and Sharif held a bilateral meeting three days back on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit in Russian city of Ufa in which they decided to revive the stalled dialogue process and quicken the Mumbai attack case trial.

However, in a turnaround, Pakistan today asked for “more evidence and information” from India on the Mumbai attack case and asserted that talks cannot take place without Kashmir being on the agenda.

    (1) It is obvious that High Commissioner of stan is taking undue advantage of freedom granted to him by sending invitation of dinner to separatists. As regards the trial of those were behind 2008 terrorist attack, it is once again clear that stani establishment does not want a fair trial of perpetrators of 2008 attack. (2) Dialogue with stan is necessary but not on terms dictated by stan. (3) Hence we must do some reality check. What kind of solutions to issues between two countries does stan want? If it wants Kashmir to be it part of stan, it is obvious that such a solution is unacceptable to India. (4) Is it not true that not one arm of Government in stan today is capable and mentally ready to curb terrorist activities in stan and Kashmir? (5) If the terrorist outfits who freely operate in stan are given a little more freedom in the Kashmir valley, they will eliminate all those people of Kashmir who want that azadi, as they are political rivals.(6) For normalization of relations between two countries, stan should accept the ground reality which is that Kashmir is and will always be a part of India.
