POV[edit]

The below para makes unsubstantiated allegations (except mentioning that it has appeared in india today) and editorializes. Either this has to be cited properly and reworded or removed.

"It has come out in India Today[citation needed], an Indian news magazine, that I K Gujral, during his tenure as PM, as part of his doctrine, wound up the Research and Analysis Wing's (R&AW) - India's external intelligence agency - covert operations in Pakistan. Acting in the belief of earning the 'goodwill' of Pakistan, he shut down R&AW's covert activities, and gave details of R&AW's assets in Pakistan, which were painstakingly built over many years. It has been alleged that this led to physical elimination of R&AW's human assets through extrajudicial means by Pakistan's intelligence agencies.[citation needed] This has been severely criticized in the light of the November 2008 Mumbai attacks and signifies the final futility of his doctrine - belief in the 'inherent goodwill' of openly hostile neighbours. This is his defining legacy. Manmohan Singh also followed the same lines and signed a controversial pact with Pakistan in Egypt"

Removed it. Unless properly cited, this doesn't belong in the article. –SpacemanSpiff 12:10, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
