strategic asset? Now that our National Security Advisora man known for his restraintconfirms that the ISI was involved in 26/11 I had hoped that someone in the American state department would notice the implications of this It changes everything but all we got from the spokesman of the State DepartmentPhilip Crawleywas a polite request for Pakistan to do more to catch those responsible for 26/11 How can Pakistan do this Will it arrest General Ashraf Kayani Will it arrest the General who was head of the ISI Of course not but the Americans appear to be so desperate to get out of Afghanistan that they humour Pakistan as if it were some spoilt child Even when they make silly charges about Indias so-called involvement in Afghanistan Mrs Clinton smiles politely What involvement India wants Afghanistan to be a peaceful country and not Jihad Central as it was under the Taliban We do not like women being stoned to death or locked upilliterate and helplessin their homes Our involvement in Afghanistan has been mostly in the form of building hospitalsschools and roads Butbecause Pakistan is paranoid and thinks of Afghanistan as its backyard it shrieks about Indian involvement and the American State Department listens Ironicallywhat India is doing in Afghanistan is what the Americans should have been doing from the day Barack Obama became President Instead of sending more young men to die in an unwinnable war it should be flooding Afghanistan with civilian aid The only way to prevent the Taliban from coming back is to build schools and hospitalsroads and power stations so that ordinary Afghans realize that there are benefits in modernity It is when they see that modernity brings them nothing but war that they began to hanker after the Islamic idyll that Jihadi groups like the Taliban promise them Perhapsthe Prophet Mohammed lived in a time when Arabia was a haven of peace and prosperity but that this haven can no longer be created should be evident to even ordinaryilliterate Afghans All they need to do is peek across the border to see what has become of the country that came into being in the name of Islam Even if it is hard for ordinaryilliterate Afghans to see that religion is not the solution to their countrys problems it should be evident to those who make American foreign policy It should be evident at least that Pakistans problems with water and jihadi terrorism are of its own making It should be evident that religion is not a good enough reason for a country to be created and that is the crux of Pakistans problems ButMrs Clinton sails into Islamabad and agrees to every silly demand Perhapsshe should concentrate on helping Pakistani farmers sell their mangoes It might be easier than helping sort out the mess that Afghanistan has become as a result of American intervention in our neighbourhood Follow Tavleen Singh on Twitter @ tavleen_singh For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by MANASI PHADKE | Mumbai | Published: December 11 2015 1:58 am Related News Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet smart cities mission is facing stiff resistance in Maharashtra with representatives from across political parties excluding the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) fearing that the scheme will result in Centre’s interference in the functioning of local bodies Of the 10 cities that the Union government had picked from Maharashtra to participate in the Centre’s smart cities scheme the municipal corporations of at least two — Nashik and Navi Mumbai — have now formally rejected the proposal Pune deferred it Wednesday giving more time to dissenting corporators to mull over it The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leads the Pune and Navi Mumbai municipal corporations while the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) is in charge of the Nashik corporation The main grouse of the dissenting corporators is the proposed formation of a special purpose vehicle (SPV) run by a full-time chief executive officer with representatives of the Union and state governments and the local bodies for every city to implement its smart city plans “This is a strategy of the Union government to economically and politically control hundred cities in the country” said NCP’s Netra Shirke standing committee chairman at the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation Shirke said the corporation would have to finance the SPV pay off loans for it and still have little say in the implementation of smart city projectsin Navi Mumbai “We will have to delegate all decision-making powers for the smart city to the SPV This is unacceptable to us Transparency will also be compromised” she said As per the Centre’s guidelines the SPV is proposed to be a limited company with 50:50 equity shareholding of the urban local body and the state government with the two stakeholders to determine the paid-up capital commercial financing and other funding modalities “The entire concept of the SPV is against democracy The local representatives who people democratically elect will have a negligible role in creating the smart city” said a senior MNS corporator from
