Q&A Jha & Beattie / Pakistan India / Tensions between India and Pakistan over the disputed Kashmir territory have escalated in recent days, after Islamabad blamed New Delhi for killing one of its soldiers late Tuesday. It is the latest in a series of attacks that have left at least two Pakistani and two Indian soldiers dead. India's Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, Tuesday said bilateral relations cannot be "business as usual" in the wake of these border incidents. Raghbendra Jha, executive director of the Australian South Asia Research Center, tells VOA's Victor Beattie what Mr. Singh's statement means.
