28 days after the Pathankot attack, the Pakistani prime minister has made his biggest admission. Nawaz Sharif has admitted, that yes, Pathankot attacks scuttled the dialogue process with India.
A helpless sounding Pak prime minister issuing a regret, but that's not a response India would have hoped for. India wanted concrete action against the Pathankot plotters of Jaish-e-Mohammad.
India wanted JEM chief Masood Azhar behind bars. India wanted its terror infrastructure dismantled, but, what we really got was this reluctant regret from Nawaz Sharif.
Pak began on a promising note with raids on JEM offices but, soon, the action turned into a charade, with Pakistan govt still dragging its feet on the clinching proof provided by India against the plotters. With his latest admission, Sharif has once again tried to express his helplessness, but, India is not ready to accept this regret. All India needs is action on the ground, which till today is missing.
