Letters to the Editor
Sir, The efforts to undermine the significance of the Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon's visit to India are totally uncalled for. If Israel's policy under Mr. Sharon towards Palestinians is a good enough reason for opposing his visit, how is it possible for the intellectuals to advocate peace talks with Pakistan under Pervez Musharraf who is responsible for the death of so many Indians? If we are to invite and receive only those heads of state with `clean hands,' we better close down the Ministry of External Affairs.
Sir, Mr. Sharon's visit will boost the bilateral relationship that has remained largely under wraps for fear of hurting sensitivities. It is mainly the war on terror that has prompted the two countries to look more closely at the common threat of Islamic fundamentalism.
Payal Deepak Arora,
Sir, The Foreign Minister of Palestine, Nabil Sha'ath's arguments were very convincing( Sep. 2 ). The date chosen by Mr. Sharon to visit India Sept. 11 is a deliberate attempt to claim legitimacy for Israel's crimes against Palestine. It is true that India has to fight terrorism, but it will lose its moral right if it joins hands with Israel which flouts international opinion on the Palestine issue.
