Pakistan is now a recognized nuclear state. We often hear rumours that our nuclear arsenal is in danger and may fall in the hands of Taliban, or some such, any time. Our Army, Foreign Office and other concerned quarters then come out in press to assure the world that Pakistans nuclear assets are in safe hands. We are led to believe that the world believes us. But, then, there is this incident of British-born boy Sahil Saheed who was kidnapped from Jehlum and released in Sialkot but was kept in British High Commission, Islamabad, till his father returned to Pakistan from U.K.? Is one to conclude from it that the British government had no faith in Pakistans security agencies? Or our law-enforcement agencies are not even capable of handling the security of a five-year old boy? -M. RAFIQUE ZAKARIA, Karachi, March 19.
