Today’s column starts with a story that I had planned to leave for a possible future memoir but since we live in a ‘here and now’ era, it is perhaps best to tell it while it remains relevant. In the year 2000, I was in Pakistan tracking down that country’s terror militias which were targeting the Kashmir valley. My travels took me to Rawalpindi and the headquarters of the self-styled United Jihad Council to meet with the Hizbul Mujahideen chief, Syed Salahuddin. The initial interaction didn’t go off well at all.
