Abstract Share this page

At popular level, Pak-Afghan relations are perceived in rather very strange manner. It is difficult to comprehend the nuances of these relations without understanding their social and historical context. Almost every Afghan has complaints against Pakistan. Afghans consider Pakistan to be responsible for their destruction much more than any super power. Media and political circles refer to Pakistan in the same manner that in Pakistan reference is made to USA. Like most Pakistanis think nothing big can happen in Pakistan without USA, majority of Afghans think, nothing in Afghanistan can happen without ISI (Pakistan's premier intelligence agency). Blaming Pakistan and its intelligence agency for every unpleasant incident has become a fashion. But along with this, it is also an interesting reality like in Pakistan Political Leaders, Civil Servants and Civil Society always wish to have good relations with USA, Afghans of same classes continuously try to have better relations with Pakistan. Like people of Pakistan with means, consider having a house in the west necessary, the rich Afghans of East and Northern Afghanistan likes to buy property in Pakistan as well as shifting of their families there. Whatever they may have in their hearts, all Pakhtuns have some connection with or need Pakistan, so cannot challenge or oppose Pakistan.
