TO COMMENT on the future of India-Pakistan relations these days is like talking about two very different worlds. While the Indian media is almost totally absorbed in and expressing anger over the LoC incident, Pakistanis don’t look that bothered.

A BARELVI mullah seems to have taken Pakistan by storm, threatening all political stakeholders of dire consequences if they hamper his long march on 14 January. The ostensible objective of Tahir-ul-Qadri, who has the backing of establishment forces such as the Mohajir Quami Movement (MQM) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q), is to bring safe and clean politics to Pakistan.
