Praiseworthy

New Delhi's offer to open three relief centres on Indian territory to help earthquake victims living across the Line of Control is praiseworthy. It will increase people-to-people contact and give divided families an opportunity to meet their relatives after years. At the same time, India should ensure that it does not lower its guard because terrorists have proved post-quake that they will stop at nothing to sabotage the peace process.

The decision to let the quake-hit cross over to the Indian side during daytime is a significant step forward in India-Pakistan ties.

Amid euphoria, let us not forget that Pakistan turned down joint relief operations and our offer of helicopters. India should undertake relief for the PoK victims only if it is accepted unconditionally and gracefully.

The latest moves are no doubt based on trust. But it is hoped that India will remember Pakistan's betrayals of the past.
