Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that there appears to be some dismay in the policy of THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) towards Shia Iran. But since the Hindu state has in the past had good relations with Iran to counter balance Sunni Pakistan’s nuclear military power and encourage Shia Iran to be a counter-thrust to the Sunni nuclear bomb, we are not sure whether the pressure America has put on Iran has in anyway made the Hindu state withdraw its support to Iran in becoming a counter-thrust to Pakistan. Therefore, it will take some time before the policy of the Hindu state materialises towards Iran and hence the Chabahar project appears to be in the doldrums.
