WEB DESK: India’s failure to quash latest spurt in high-visibility freedom struggle of Kashmiris has indeed obliged New Delhi to have hire mercenaries and nudge its terrorist cells out of their sleep to disrupt life in various parts of Pakistan.
So upset it is over its failure that it is not prepared to hear even the word ‘Kashmir’, be it from the UN Secretary General or Pakistan’s Foreign Office.
Having earlier offered to send its finance secretary to Islamabad over the weekend New Delhi has conveyed its inability. Such a shift in India’s position was quite expected given Prime Minister Modi having lost his marbles over his Pakistani counterpart’s pledge of political, diplomatic and moral support to the Kashmiris. The Foreign Office spokesman in his briefing on Thursday was therefore very much on spot by saying that India through its “clumsy attempts” wanted to divert world attention from a purely indigenous uprising in the Valley.
But despite this intransigence on the part of Indian government, Pakistan still considers dialogue as the best option for resolution of disputes. And the future of state of Jammu and Kashmir is one such dispute which India has accepted until the recent past. The latest spurt for freedom in Occupied Kashmir should make New Delhi deny that reality that only an ostrich would do by burying its head in the sand. India wants talks with Pakistan but not on Kashmir – what a chicanery.
India would be damn naïve to believe that in the eyes of the world what RAW agent Kulbhashan Jadev confessed about his mission in Balochistan is merely a make-believe concoction. The hard fact is India has been all the time busy in fomenting trouble in Balochistan, Karachi and tribal areas. It hasn’t succeeded in any meaningful way that’s another thing. And it would not stop at that; of late, India is set about recruiting mercenaries from amongst the Afghan refugees who have returned to their country.
To them it has offered visa-free travels for medical treatment, reduced airfares and 100 percent increase in the number of Kabul-New Delhi flights. What generosity does it mean when compared with the saga of an Indian national who walked 10 kilometers back home from hospital carrying on his shoulders the body of his dead wife because the hospital authorities refused to give an ambulance. India direly needs proxies in Balochistan, and might have got some in there already – the Quetta lawyers’ slaughter and murderous attack on Levies near Gwadar being their exploits.
And who among the foreign leaders could be more in complexity with India’s anti-Pakistan designs and plans than the rulers in Kabul. Even before the last bullet was fired on the American University in the Afghan capital President Ghani’s office was claiming that the attack was “orchestrated” from Pakistan – and not India which is a net beneficiary of unending turmoil in Afghanistan. Responding to Kabul’s hunch that there was a link between the attackers and accomplices Pakistan said all the Afghan SIMs used during the attack were from a network owned and operated by an Afghan company.
Since the Afghan Taliban too have not owned up attack on the university, nor is there any technical evidence it was orchestrated from Pakistan who else then could be behind this act, if not the one whose relevance get boosted only if Afghanistan is in turmoil.
Army Chief General Raheel Sharif has strongly condemned this attack and assured President Ashraf Ghani once again that Pakistani soil would never be allowed to be used for any type of terrorism in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, however, President Ghani is prone to shifting the blame of his failures – be it in fighting against the Afghan Taliban or desertions from his forces – onto others, particularly Pakistan, which is also India’s punching bag.
