Pakistan: Time to Redefine Policy towards India

Indian Prime Minister shut all the doors for negotiation by once again reiterating “Kashmir is an integral part of India and no talks can be held on the issue”. He sounded a typical extremist Hindus who says, “We will not allow another division of India on the basis of religion”. His anti-Pakistan sentiments were at its peak when he said “Pakistan is the epicenter of cross border terrorism”. In fact his speech was aimed at declaring Pakistan a terrorist state.

In the simplest words he said ‘Pakistan is sponsoring terrorism”. This is a big slap on the face of all those Pakistanis who have been signing mantra of ‘Aman Ki Asha’ for years and ignoring that India is being ruled by Hindu extremists, who are adamant at destroying Pakistan for achieving the status of regional super Power. Let this also be kept in mind that the United States is the biggest proponent of this philosophy.

India blames that Pakistan’s foreign policy is being dictated by hawks but worse is the situation in the country which claims to be a secular state and also the biggest democracy of the world. The Indian occupied Kashmir is under the siege of army/law enforcing agencies for decades and people are denied ‘right of self determination’ despite approval of resolution in the United Nations.
In this endeavor India is fully supported by the colonial rulers of yester years. They allowed creation of Bangladesh and division of Indonesia and Sudan on the basis of religion, sponsored change of regime in Iraq, Libya and are supporting rebels in Syria for last two years.

However, they are never tired of appeasing India, only because it is their major trading partner. They are supporting India because it is trying to demolish a country created on the basis of an ideology. There are only two states in the world, Pakistan and Israel that were created on the basis of ideology.

It has been highlighted time and again that Pakistan suffers from internal and external threats. While frontiers can be guarded the embedded enemies are difficult to catch. These perpetrators wear various caps and the worst display of ‘cold blooded mercenaries’ was the attack on the helicopter of Pakistan Army that went to earthquake affected areas to deliver food etc.

TTP is yet another faction of the fascists who is at war with Pakistan Army for years. However, worst is the attitude of those who are still trying to appease the terrorists, telling the government to declare ceasefire unilaterally but not asking the perpetrators that lay down arms is a prerequisite to talk.  

It is also been mention repeatedly that a proxy war is going on in Pakistan. All those adamant at destroying Pakistan have joined hands. The perpetrators may wear different caps but have a common objective, destroy Pakistan.

It is highly regrettable that many Pakistanis, particularly politicians have not been able to distinguish between friends and foes. Especially in case of India all the efforts to restore ‘friendly relations’ have been frustrated by the hawks prevailing over in India. This hawkish attitude is at its maximum when general elections are to be held in India. Often political parties try to solicit vote on the basis of anti-Pakistan stance.
