Dilip Kumar's Appeal
Dec 2015

 I can think, so says Kasuri, of no better ending to this section than to narrate an anecdote recounted to me by Saeed Mehdi who has been my class fellow and a friend for a long time and who was Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister at the time of the Kargil War between India and Pakistan in May 1999.  According to Saeed, one day he was sitting with Prime Minister Nawaz Shrif when the telephone bell rang and the ADC informed the PM that the Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee wished to speak with him urgently. PM Vajpayee expressed his grievance that he had been shabbily treated by the PM after having invited him to Lahore.According to Saeed Mehdi, PM Nawaz Sharif looked surprised at the words of the Indian Prime Minister. The Indian PM complained that while he had been received in Lahore with such warmth, Pakistan had wasted no time in occupying Kargil. PM Nawaz Sharif said that he was not aware of what PM Vajpayee was saying to him and promised to get back to him after talking to the Chief of the Army Staff, General Pervez Musharraf. Before the conversation could end, Vajpayee told Nawaz Sharif that he would like him to speak to somebody who was sitting next to him during their conversation. PM Nawaz Sharif was astonished when he heard the voice of Dilip Kumar (Yousuf Khan, originally from Peshawar), the legendry film star who has won the hearts of generations of Pakistani and Indian film lovers, telling him, 'Mian Sahib, we did not expect this from you since you have always claimed to be a great supporter of peace between Pakistan and India.  Let me tell you as a Indian Muslim that in case of tension between Pakistan and India, the position of Indian Muslims becomes very insecure and they find it difficult to even leave their homes.  Please do something to control this situation.
