No. Sports contacts should continue as such things help in improving relations at least to some extent. Major issues which are there from the time of independence of both the countries will take time to be permanently solved. Our differences need to be thrashed out according to the Simla Agreement i.e. mutually.

I think so especially in the wake of Pakistan's inaction against the LET chief, believed to be the master mind in the 26/11 Mumbai terrorists attack. Not only Hafiz Sayed is a free man, but he is spreading vitriol and venom against India in his speeches. I have always believed that sports and politics should not be mixed. But for once I feel that this tour can hurt the sentiments of Indian people, especially those affected by the terrorist attack. The continued stay of Dawood Ibrahim and Hafiz Sayed as free people in Pakistan, and that country's brazen denial about Dawood's stay is a failure of diplomacy and by resuming the cricketing ties we are actually acknowledging our defeat, which can only encourage future terrorists.

Why we stopped playing cricket with Pakistan after 26/11 ? What has changed since then, to reverse our decision ? Our politicians are duffers, this is the only explanation.

Why should India's politicians consider or describe cricket matches as similar, equal, or analogous to 'several unresolved issues', which they have failed to resolve and have no hope to resolve? It is their diversionary tactics to divert public's attention from their failures.
