I don't know if it's politics is involved or not. But even if politics was not involved, Pakistani players would still not have been picked. IPL is run by big businesses who are investing money not just to make money, but also to promote their products. After the recent Mumbai attacks, no business house would like to be associated with a Pakistani. It's for the Indian market after all.

It's unfortunate that this has led to Pakistan stopping the peace talks. They asked the Indian government to take steps against IPL which the GOI declined. So they stopped the next delegation of MPs that were scheduled to come to India.
