 Goodbye, Mr Qazi 
Qazi goes home on Saturday — recalled by Pakistan on the demand of India — leaving Indo-Pakistan relations in a worse shape than he found them, with the armies of both nations on full alert and the constant exchange of heavy artillery fire across the border.
So if Qazi is really committed to normalising relations between his country and India, he must convey to the Pakistan president the message that rhetoric can never be a substitute for effective action.
Qazi says that he is still an optimist, that hope for a better ties springs eternal in his breast.

The cable would have been written at a time when Qazi was feeling the heat in Delhi after the Taliban cooperated with hijackers of an Indian Airlines plane taken to Kandahar and released in exchange for terrorists jailed in India for holy war in support of Kashmir’s freedom.
Qazi, it would have been clear to the Americans from the cable and other such evidence, was among those in the Pakistani foreign office who had questioned the support of the Army General Headquarters in Rawalpindi for the religious zealots in Afghanistan, a factor that would have endeared him to the Washington establishment.
The letter and Qazi’s cable were reported in Survival, the journal of the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies, in 2002 but Coll’s book puts such facts into the context of Pakistan’s web of ties with the Taliban and the evolution of Washington’s alliance with Musharraf during the Bush presidency.
