We must learn from India, says Pakistani daily

Islamabad, Dec 18 : India's angry response to the arrest and humiliation of a woman Indian diplomat in the US should be a lesson for Pakistan, a Pakistani newspaper said Wednesday.


"Pakistanis are watching with envy as India is reacting to the treatment meted out to its deputy consul-general Devyani Khobragade by Washington," said an article in The News International.

It shows "very clearly how proud nations fight back in every possible manner.

"But will Islamabad and Rawalpindi learn any lesson on how to strike back when any of its citizens is insulted in this manner?" asked the article, authored by the daily's diplomatic editor, Mariana Baabar.

Khobragade, now on a bail of $250,000, was arrested and charged with underpaying her domestic Indian servant and filing false information about the wages paid.

"But what has shocked everyone is how the young female diplomat was handcuffed, strip-searched in front of her children and thrown behind bars with criminals," the newspaper said.

India has taken a string of measures in protest against the humiliating treatment of Khobragade, leading to an unprecedented chill in Indo-US relations.
