Neglecting the economic paradigm made Pakistan irrelevant to India

The signals which are given to Pakistan from the Modi government are confusing. There was an invitation to the swearing in ceremony in May 2014. Some weeks later, there was a sledgehammer (in pure military terms, disproportionate) response to Pakistani incursions and firing on the line of control and therefore the international border. The foreign secretary level talks were cancelled by New Delhi because Pakistani diplomats met the Hurriyat leadership.

Now, government appears to be settled into the awkward formulation that Pakistanis can interact with Hurriyat however not in the run up to bilateral talks.

In the start of Modi government, the determination to possess a free election in Jammu & Kashmir has made an impact on Modi’s approach and he wanted to warn Pakistan against possible meddling. Yet, even after elections, things haven’t come back to ‘normal’.

When Indian foreign secretary S. Jaishankar visited Islamabad recently, it absolutely was posited as a part of a Saarc yatra but not as an event between two nations. Pro-forma statements were made. No roadmap for a ‘composite dialogue’ or any other kind of dialogue was arranged out. No invites were handed over.


All of this seems to suggest that Indians and India have just lost interest in Pakistan. They are just another nation to India now.
