had from somebody is a difficult assign ment Pakistans President Ayub Khan at this moment in history could be cited as a notable case in point With Red China sending its fighting hordes down across the Indian border in a drive as men acing to Pakistan as to India over the long run Ayub and his Pakistani government are rais ing the roof because United States is coming to the aid of India with arms and supplies This isnt to say that Pakistan hasnt a legitimate grievance against Nehru It has many of them in fact Greatest of these of course is his refusal to keep his promise for a plebis cite in Kashmir Pakistan under stood UN understood every body understood that the people of that province would decide their future in a free election Thats the principal bone sticking in the Pakistani throat to use an expression once em ployed by Nikita Khrushchev with respect to Berlin But there have been many other irritations between Pakistan and India since their separation almost 15 years ago This isnt surprising of course Tfce wonder is that they hment been more numerous and more serious considering the allocation of territory decid ed upon when independence from Great Britain became op

territory which was to be come Pakistan presented prob lems wholly without precedent in world history The exodus out of Egypt in Biblical days was something pretty minor by com parison It was

amicable settlement are ap preciably improved I think How Pakistanis feel toward Nehru and India was unfolded to me one day back in 1957 when I was a guest in the Karachi home of Amjad Ali I had made his acquaintance when he was the ambassador for Pakistan to United States but by this time he had become the minister of finance back home With me at that luncheon and extended conference in Amjads rather palatial home was A M Abe Rosenthal of the New York Times who was featured In a recent issue of Newsweek as the most knowledgeable corre epondent operating in Southeast ern Asia The fact that

away at a giant watercooled pipe known as a Amjad talked to Rosenthal and me about his countrys problems past present and future Heetook a dim view of Nehru and of Egypts Nasser We both knew of course how he felt about Nehru But his appraisal of Nasser was more newsworthy This was a few weeks after Nasser with an assist from the United States had won a pres tigebuilding victory over the Suez He was in the process of trying to establish himself as chief spokesman for the whole Islam world The nerve of the man Amjad asserted with strong leeling Egypts population then was Turn to 2 Please ans claim
