The Nawaz Sharif government in Pakistan has warned its military leadership of international isolation that the country is facing, seeking consensus on several key actions by the state.

According to a report in Pakistan daily Dawn, the civilian government and its military have agreed to two sets of actions.

Pakistan’s ISI DG Gen Rizwan Akhtar, along with NSA Nasser Janjua, will travel to the four Pakistani provinces informing intelligence agencies ‘not to interfere if law enforcement acts against militant groups that are banned or until now considered off-limits for civilian action’.

Second, Nawaz Sharif has ordered that fresh attempts be made to conclude the investigations into the Pathankot attack as well as “restart the stalled Mumbai attacks-related trials in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court’.

Dawn reports that the decisions appear to indicate a high-stake new approach by the PML-N government, and comes after a verbal confrontation between Punjab (Pakistan) CM Shahbaz Sharif and ISI DG Gen Akhtar.

      If true, it is a welcome sign. Although very hard to believe, no precedent of such prudent behaviour from the unfortunate neighbour.

        Pak military leaders have never and will never be dictated by the elected government. army/ISI have their own agenda and will never shy away from crushing democracy as history tells us. This new drama of Sharif is only an eye wash to fool the public, world and India. We in India know how cunning and deceptive Sharif is and should not fall into his trap. India should take its time and keep the pressure up.

              The article in Dawn-stan seems to be a figment of imagination of the writer. It looks like a joke. Political leadership does not have the guts to say all the things said in the article.
