  1. The pakistanis leaders /Army are very unscrupulous in bargaining while taking action against terrorists emanating from Pakistan soil.. India has given ample evidences to Pak authorities on Mumbai attach and many other pak terrorist attacks in India. But Pakistan army/Judicial /political authorities have been always in denial mode and also try to manipulate these evidences to nullify the Pak terrorists’ role on any of such attack in India and Afghanistan. Hence, Mr Tillerson should take harsh action against pakistan that only will help desist pakistan authorities from sponsoring /supporting/ funding /training the Haqqani and many other pak based terrorist groups. They can only understand harshness and violence as reply against them and answer to their Jihad terrorist activities. Any moderation /softness towards them will never bear any fruit while dealing with pakistan that has been evident from last twenty years of carrot offered to them . It is time to use stick by USA to subdue the Pak authorities from JIHADI politics. It is unfortunate that instead of providing any developmental support to kashmir and Afghan people Pak is raining bullets in in Kashmir and Afghanistan through its JIHADI activities since last twenty years . Pak envy the popularity of USA/Indian among Afghan /Kashmir public hence, it blames USA/’ India and says India has no role in Afghanistan while all citizens there appreciate /adore USA/ India’s contribution there. Hence, without any compromise and further talks with Pak, USA should take strongest and meaningful military action against pakistan so that they would be taught a lesson on their excuses. adamancy and high handedness while sending JIHADIs to kashmir and Afghanistan in spite of repeated exposes of their unholy activities in South Asia.
