    Asma asks India to forgive Pakistan.

    Asma Jahangir who is visiting India, had asked India to forgive Pakistan for it's misdeeds.

    Forgive Pak. Govt., Asma tells Indians

    NEW DELHI, MAY 4. In a total turnaround from Wednesday's tough- talk, the leader of the visiting Pakistani women's delegation, Ms. Asma Jahangir, today sought forgiveness from Indians for the Pakistani Government's misdeeds. She said the people of Pakistan did not have any complaint against their neighbour and illwill was a creation of the politicians.

    Speaking at a meeting of various women's organisations here today, Ms. Jahangir said her fellow-countrymen could not imagine prosperity without progress in India.``If disaster strikes in either of the countries, both will be affected because of the proximity. Moreover, our problems are same and sufferings are common.''

    Wondering why the goodwill of people failed to overcome bitterness, she said animosity was a result of politics. ``We did some tough talking yesterday but that was with the expectation of a better future. This people-to-people dialogue should continue and pick up momentum.''

    Restoration of democracy in Pakistan was necessary for peace in the entire region. Pakistan had internal conflicts with respect to restoration of democracy, respect for human rights and rights of women. Fundamentalism was due to the attitude of so-called saviours of Islam who had been encouraged by the former President, Zia-ul-Haq. ``These people have taken over the country and society is hostage to their diktats.''

    Inviting Indian women to frequent Pakistan, she said women had an important role to play in the region. ``Women of Indian subcontinent are unique pearls which are yet to be discovered by the world. Human rights in these countries have been made possible only because of women.''

          Asma Jahangir was instrumental in release of Roop Lal an Indian who was in Pakistani jail for 26 years. She's also working on reuniting other Indians who are stranded in Pakistan.

            let's say it fully

            Asma Jahangir also flayed Vajpayee over HR issues in Kashmir. She's good.
            Simple ain't easy.

                          >>Pakistani women's delegation, Ms. Asma Jahangir,<<


                          Asma was visiting India as a representive of a women's Pakistani delegation, does anybody know, in what capacity Khushwant was visiting Pakistan and did he have the authority to speak for India. While I was in India I didn't hear a word about Khushwant's visit to Pakistan.

                            Khushwant Singh was visiting part of Rotary International.

                            Well because he criticised India he was given headline coverage in DAWN and The NEWS (as expected) and interview in SUNDAY section and shower of praises. His books were reviewed. His visit was not reported in any international media.

                            In fact he said that Sikhs were happy in India and progressing. He also said that Kashmiris would not want to be part of either India nor Pakistan. He suggested that the Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist areas of Kashmir be given to India and Kashmir Valley be made a Free Trade Zone accessible to both India and Pakistan.
