Dangerous liaison

Sir, — George W. Bush is making a serious mistake in pampering Pakistan. It was Pakistan that first floated the news that Osama bin Laden was dead but it says now that he is probably alive. Dawood Ibrahim is in Pakistan and yet Islamabad denies it. Several acts of terrorism, including the attack on Mufti Mohammed Sayeed's house, are proof of Pakistan's encouragement of cross-border terrorism.

It is time India put its foot down and adopted the hot pursuit policy.
