On one side, there is a heavy air of uncertainty flowing between India and Pakistan in regards to Article 370 and 35(A) abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir, the other side, India has told that it won’t play cricket with Pakistan. On digging to the details it was known that Minister of External Affairs Subrahmanyam Jaishankar has spoken on the India and Pakistan cricket play.
Speaking to the media meet, the Minister of External Affairs has questioned saying, New Delhi and Islamabad hold the dominative relationship of terrorism that relates suicide bombings, violence. He said that at this point in time, “New Delhi can’t take a tea break and say, let us go and play cricket’.” Next, Jaishankar highlighted the terror attacks that happened in India at Uri, Pathankot, and Pulwama and said that “it’s a very hard narrative to sell to people… It’s a democracy, sentiments do matter and one message [that] I don’t want to give [is that] you do terrorism by night, and [then] it’s business as usual during the day.”
Jaishankar expressed his feelings saying, the issue for India is not whether it talks with Pakistan or not but how to hold a relationship with a country that says no terror but does all the terror things behind. However, it is still skeptical as India won’t be playing cricket with Pakistan currently, or forever. It is a million-dollar question now.
