Paranoid Pranab: India’s Two Faced Foreign Minister
By AHMED QURAISHI

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—During the entire Pak-India crisis, India’s foreign minister Pranab ‘Paranoid’ Mukherjee has shown himself to be a four-legged clown.
Since early December, Mr. Mukherjee has changed more positions than a model’s dress at a fashion show in Mumbai.
Western journalists following the Indian drama should pay attention.
First Mr. Mukherjee said India was not going to share evidence with Pakistan. Then he said all evidence has already been given to Pakistan. Then he said India has to complete its own investigations before sharing anything with Pakistan.
One of the glaring contradictions in Mr. Mukherjee’s statements is the point where he reached a foregone conclusion about Pakistan’s culpability while insisting that Indian investigations are incomplete.
Paranoid Mukherjee bears a huge part of the responsibility for the dramatic and unfortunate increase in tensions in the Pak-India region.
Here is the case against Pranab ‘Paranoid’ Mukherjee as described by one of our contributors:
“India never escalated tension with Pakistan: Mukherjee
“Mukherjee threatens Pakistan with military strike”
“Unilateral attack option against Pakistan remains open: Pranab Mukherjee“
“India to consider all options, warns Pranab“
“India to give befitting reply to ‘terror sponsors’: Sonia”
Exhibit E: The Best Part, The Clincher
“Pakistan creating war hysteria: Pranab“
CONCLUSION: Exhibits A to Z prove Paranoid Mukerjee’s sense of humor. The only problem is that it is not funny anymore. The Indian government is boring the world, with no evidence and with its blatant anti-Pakistanism on full display.
Relax, Mukherjee. No one believes anymore, except maybe Ariel Sharon.
