Dear Mrs. D - Poem by NAYYAR SHABBIR AHMAD

(A Pakistani MP)


I heard your interview with the BBC

It's reporter was dismissive of your accusation that his radio station gave a very biased opinion of Pakistan while accepting every word said by the US as gospel.

Don't single out the BBC alone for chastisement. No Country in the West has a specific foreign policy of its own. It has a herd-like mentality instead, and sings from exactly the same hymn sheet as the US.

Now, if the US wishes to ignore the myriad sacrifices made by Pakistan in helping it fight it's war in Afghanistan - don't expect many in the West to appreciate it either.

You were right to point out that: If anyone in Pakistan meets with the Taliban, he's immediately labelled a traitor by America, whereas if the US mingles with the Taliban- observers in the West refer to it as - detente.
Quaint - (some think!)

Sorry - but, I don't see you being recalled by the BBC for another interview - only to air a diverse point of view from the Wests.... Do you?
