With two Indian soldiers mutilated in Poonch, the country, and not just the government is livid. And yet again, the government has issued strong statements. While the Sports Minister has said that terror and sports don't go along, a delegation of 50 Pakistani students was sent back on the advice of the Foreign Ministry. Clearly the cultural ties with Pakistan have taken a severe beating. But is severing cultural ties the answer? The Indian Army has obliquely hinted at military reaction at the time and place of its choosing. In response to the claims of beheading of Indian soldiers by the Indian Army, the Pakistan Army has denied any such occurrence. On this edition of We The People we ask: Can India do better? Is there anything we can do other than diplomatic statements, surgical strikes, and banning Pakistani players and artists from the country? These actions might satisfy public anger in the immediate term, but do they actually advance India's long term interest?
