Early Two-Nation Theory Highlighted
LAHORE: The Punjab University Center for South Asian Studies (CSAS) organized a seminar on “Indo-Pakistani relations”.
According to a press release, former Foreign Office legal adviser Ross Masud was the keynote speaker while CSAS Director Professor Umbreen Javaid, faculty members and MPhil/PhD scholars attended. The guest speaker began his lecture with the appearance of Muslim domination in South Asia and its consolidation through a structured framework, driven by huge Muslim leaders. It brought cultural assimilation to the region, he added. Masud also pointed to the beginning of the two-nation theory which later led to the Pakistan movement. He said that India had erected huge problems to destabilize Pakistan. He said Kashmir and water were the key issues that made bilateral issues hostile. The speaker said meaningful dialogue and effective diplomacy was the way forward to mitigate the growing hostility between the two nuclear-weapon States.
