Indo-Pak confederation?
By Ghulam Muhammad, Mumbai

Senior writer Mr M.V. Kamath, who is very near to Sangh Privar, has published in Free Press Journal, Mumbai an open letter to Pakistan CEO Parvez Mussharraf, strongly proposing co-federation of India and Pakistan. The subject is not new but in view of the stalemate in Indo-Pak relations, it certainly calls for a serious and committed public debate to work the pros and cons as well as the modalities of forming an Indo-Pak confederation.

Time was never more opportune. But before it is debated in India, Mr Kamath is advised to seek a public TV interview with Mr Musharraf and visit Islamabad, if he is serious in promoting the initiative to bring about a fundamental change to the dynamics of Indo-Pak relations. One is sure there will be various sponsors to such a visit and if Vajpayee Government is not interested to sponsor such a visit due to its own agenda regarding Indo-Pak relations, the people should not relent in availing of such independent initiatives as open transparent public discussions of such intractable problems help build up badly needed pressures on the vested interests, who unfortunately only wish to perpetuate the status quo, even when the future of the status quo cold only lead to more and more disasters.

Corollaries to his proposal for ‘confederation of India-Pakistan’, need to be addressed with a open mind without seeming to start with preconditions. India being the senior partner, will have to ‘earn’ confidence and trust of the junior partner, possibly starting with a ban on the usage of the terms, senior/junior, bigger/smaller. As it is, even without any mention, the truth will reflect in more than one way. There should be no need to rub in.

Mr Kamath has started positively by acknowledging the cherished shared cultural nuances of the two separated brother countries, where elders are respected. The elders too are known to be kink, generous and caring in their dealings with their young. Throughout the period of when both countries have achieved independence from the colonial power, the fundamental problem was insecurity and mistrust of each other. We tackle this psychic insecurity problem and the whole set of new opportunities open up to make life in the subcontinent more fruitful, wholesome and rewarding. A golden era of peace and prosperity is in our hands. Let us make a beginning.
