India-Pakistan: August 2, 2001


While India pressures Pakistan to withdraw support for rebels and terrorists in Kashmir, Pakistanis are becoming increasingly alarmed at the religious radicals and their terrorism inside Pakistan. In the past week, several senior government officials have been killed as a result of the Shia/Sunni religious battles. There are also tribal rebels in the northwest and southwest who fight against the central government. Actually, it's the religious radicals inside Pakistan that make it difficult for the government to control the rebels in Kashmir, who use religion (Islam versus Hinduism) to justify their struggle.
