According to this concept individuals acquired spiritual knowledge to guide common people. they not only revived their old religious customs and practices but also constructed new beliefs in accordance with the changing times. consequently. Buddhism also changed with the passage of time. Mahayana was influenced by Hinduism and its followers adopted most of the rituals and ceremonies of the Hindus. they gradually lost their own identity. As Buddhists also followed many of the traditions that belonged to Hindus. this weakened the roots of Buddhism in India. This also goes to show the flexibility of Hinduism that absorbed other religious beliefs in its structure. On the other hand. Once Brahmans got political support. Buddhism spread to western southern India where priests used to worship in caves ± these caves were built by rulers. As it happens in every religion. In Mathura and Taxila. it has lost its significance at the place where it originated. Though Buddhism has not totally disappeared in India. He built monasteries for the priests. Jainism Jainism first became popular in North India and from there it spread to Kalinga (Orissa). On the other hand. 17 . for instance. One of the rulers of Satavahana dynasty converted to Jainism and patronized it. the Brahmans gained more power and met the challenges of both beliefs ± Buddhism and Jainism. the beliefs of Buddhism that were accepted by the people were also integrated in Hindu religion and. Buddhism also passed through the same phase and two sects namely Mahayana (great wheel) and Hinayana (small wheel) emerged in the society. As Buddhism lost its influence. So. A Bodhisattva is anyone who is motivated by compassion and seeks enlightenment not only for him/herself but also for everyone. Buddha¶s statues were made like other Hindu gods and deities. they started to worship Buddha¶s idol in the temples and also took out religious processions in order to express their devotion towards religion. The followers of Hinayana believed that Buddha was in heaven and guiding his disciples to the right path from there. new sects are formed to fulfill the demands and ambitions of certain factions of society.Ancient India: Parallel Faiths Buddhism and Jainism Fall of the Mauryan Empire brought not only political changes but it also affected people¶s religious life. During this time a new concept of Bodhisattva became popular among the followers of Buddha. There was simplicity in their rituals and ceremonies. nobles and rich traders to get the blessing of Buddha.

However.Jainism remained confined to small communities. as a result the Buddhists became a minority in India where they once ruled. Laos. Vietnam. Japan and China. Hindus forced the followers of Buddhism to shift towards East Asia including Korea. 18 . It never became a popular faith. Both Buddhism and Jainism preached peace and tolerance.

The women who do not bring with them demanded dowry. Indian intellectuals. The Indian public is also an expert in hiding these heinous crimes. but like many other reformatory laws it is not ever enforced anywhere. But apart from this paperwork the real situation in India is entirely different. The world knows India as the largest democracy of the world. politicians and government officials relish and feel proud of it. Christians and individuals 19 . Social situation in India is so dangerous and horrible that it appears that such a society cannot exist in the modern and civilized world. The number of women who become a victim of this obnoxious rite is increasing. NGOs (non-government Organizations) working for foreign funders have even forgotten the fact that Pakistan is our identity and a reason of our existence. we think that Pakistan is the most unsafe and dangerous place for women in the world. are burnt alive or subject to physical and oral violence. No meeting of the international organization of civil and political rights can be conducted without its participation. but these treatises merely remain documents without proper enforcement and are not more than fairy tales.The Rise of the caste system India has been an important member of the International Convention of 1968 against Racialism and Discrimination. customary. If we look at the international press and listen to international broadcasting agencies. India will be deprived of its honour as the biggest democracy of the world. The rite of Sati is still there as a symbol of ignorance. religious or social norms. India is a failed country and is committing state terrorism. In 1961 dowry was banned through legislation. In fact they want to hide their real face from the international community. Discrimination on the basis of race and caste systems is a routine matter in India and mostly women are the main victims. Muslim women during partition (1947) and low caste women after partition were victimized so ruthlessly and terribly that the holy rivers of Ganga and Jamuna must have shed tears. It is involved in the massacre of many innocent Muslims. The number increased to 4835 in 1990. to make them walk naked in streets and markets and to deprive them of their possessions and properties by using force or under other pretexts including cultural. Nevertheless the practical scenario is contrasting. The number of women who were burnt alive for Sati and for not bringing the desired dowry was 2209 in 1988. Many laws have been passed to safeguard women rights and their honour in India since Partition. Sikhs. If the statistical data is taken into consideration. Perhaps it is a feature of Hindu society to rape women. many incidents of group discrimination are not even reported. In short. Today after a period of 15 years any one can guess quite easily that the figures will never be less than 100 000. It has been its member since 1979. According to research and advocacy groups working in India. No one has ever dared to put them into practice. Unfortunately many people have settled in Pakistan who earn their bread and butter by defaming Pakistan amongst the international community.

In the same way there is a minority killing riot in every part of India. India is the only country in the world which is a victim of hypocrisy of its own rulers. 20 .

Almost daily dozens of people are killed by state terrorism and aggression from fanatics.

Partition of India The first brick of Hindu-Muslim antagonism was laid when Muhammad Bin Qasim raised the banner of Islam in Sindh in 712 AD and tens of thousands of lower caste Hindus and Buddhists suffering under the tyrannical rule of Raja Dahir. At the time of Partition. Benevolence of Muslim rulers of India and their patronage to high caste Hindus resulted in failure to assimilate Hinduism into the fold of Islam. Many Indians regarded the creation of Pakistan as a tragic mistake that could still be corrected or reversed. Throughout the 1000 year rule of India by the Muslims. These callous acts failed to deter the Hindus from sowing seeds of permanent antagonism between Pakistan and India. educational. the provinces of Bengal and Punjab were deliberately partitioned while Kashmir was allowed to accede to India. Hindus never reconciled to any meaningful integration with generous Muslim culture and population. Break up of Pakistan and its absorption within the fold of Indian Union had become the national goal of Congress leaders. Indian leaders worked hard for the dismemberment of Pakistan soon after its inception. India had absorbed 538 princely states out of the total 565 states under the Indian control till that time. This led to a bitter and prolonged quarrel between the two communities. When the Kashmiris rose up in revolt. the idea of a separate Muslim state was repugnant to Indian Congress and hence unacceptable to them. When the British captured power in India. by March 1949. In spite of MA Jinnah¶s loud protestations. but all the time strived to weaken Muslims by corroding it from within. upsurge for gaining independence was too great and beyond human control. Failing to reconcile to the existence of Pakistan and cherishing the fond hope of its re-absorption into Indian dominion. Hindus became natural allies of the British and both went all-out to destroy social. The Hindus¶ deep-rooted hatred got accentuated when the Muslims opted for a separate homeland. India¶s insatiable greed to gorge as many states and her menacing attitude towards Pakistan made the latter wary and worried. To consolidate the Indian dominion. Behind apparent public cordiality. Muslims were always looked down upon as defiled and polluted and treated as intruders by their Hindu fellows. there was deep-rooted antagonism. embraced Islam. This can be gauged from the fact that at the time of partition of India. for the Hindus it was matter of preventing vivisection of so-called Mahabharata. over two-third of Kashmir was forcibly annexed by Indian forces. Notwithstanding the aspirations of the Muslims of India. Hindu cultural values and religious sentiments were respected and preserved. Hinduism reluctantly submitted to Muslim rule. Muslim population in the Indian subcontinent was only 22%. Pakistan¶s geographical frontiers had yet to be 21 . Despite many hurdles created by the Hindu leaders. cultural and religious heritage of Muslims. While it was a question of survival for the Muslims.

when Ayodhya Mosque (or Babri Mosque) was pulled down and it was demanded that a temple be erected at the same site. It was without a Constitution. Indian hawkish leaders kept scheming to fragment rest of Pakistan. Militant Bharatya Janata Party (BJP) government in India that captured power twice. and vowed to establish Hindutva (the Hindu code). Large scale state sponsored massacre of Muslims in Gujrat took place in 2003. In struggling to create a state structure in the chaotic environment of partition and an early war with India on Kashmir. Hindu leaders in their quest to re-unite India. it was not less than a nightmare. our leaders remained tied down fighting the battle of survival and identity. Hindus continue to view the Muslims as destroyers of Hindu culture and for mutilating mother India. mass carnage of the Muslims by the Hindu-Sikh combine. and the Hindus¶ abominable Bania mentality. continued to hurl threats and saddle Pakistan with knotty problems to prevent the toddling state from standing on its own feet. They refused to accept the creation of Pakistan with good faith. Their hostility cast perverse shadows across its path. It was expected that rather than beating war drums and sinking into the bottomless ocean of arms race. Unfortunately. For those who lived through that difficult and troubled times of history and personally experienced the turmoil. Given their common past spread over centuries. The Indian Congress is no less antagonistic towards Pakistan and has taken no concrete steps to control the growth of Hindu fundamentalism threatening all minorities in India. human tragedies. Hate phobia and age-old prejudices in the two neighbouring countries have not died down. leaders of the two countries would concentrate on the well being of people through mutual cooperation and support. its political and economic systems were completely disrupted and the communication system had broken down and needed a serious overhaul. As if these settling problems and the hanging evil shadow of Mountbatten and Radcliffe were not enough. It was without a seat of government or an administrative structure to enable it to exercise its sovereignty. civil servants and other administrative and technical hands were in the midst of migrating from India. and to settle all outstanding differences on the basis of justice and fair play. its armed forces were scattered and without proper weapons. There was no certainty that Pakistan would survive its traumatic birth. 1947. these hopes have so far remained an elusive dream. Very few states in the world started with greater handicaps than Pakistan did on August 14. it is rather not possible for the present younger generation to think about the complexities and difficulties faced by the pioneers of Pakistan at the time of independence.determined. repeatedly voiced its wish to reunite the subcontinent and to annex Azad Kashmir by force. and instead strive to live as peaceful neighbours. The 1980s saw rise of the Hindu fundamentalism in India. After tearing Pakistan into two in 1971. 22 . it was hoped that the two countries after having won their independence from the brutal British rule would close the chapter of suspicion and aversion. After a lapse of over six decades. Their pent-up anger and hatred against Indian Muslims was physically demonstrated in 1992. Pakistan¶s horizons became clouded with hostile acts of its neighbours in the east and the northwest.

Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackeray stated on the 12th of January. antagonism will prevail and hope for peaceful co-existence will remain elusive. Hindu scalawags fan communal riots and kill tens of Muslims. As long as India is ruled by self-serving vicious Brahmans. 2010 that Indian Muslims were untrustworthy since they are loyal to Pakistan. Muslim minority (13%) in India feels marooned and fearfully watch the growing Hindu fanaticism. These riots in India have increased rather than lessened with the passage of time. Indian armed forces rushed towards their western border and remained in a menacing mode for ten months. Glimpse of Indian deep-seated antagonism was seen on the occasion of a terrorist attack on Indian parliament on December 13. They ignore that thousands of innocent Pakistanis have died as a result of ongoing RAW sponsored acts of terror in various parts and main cities of Pakistan.Muslims in Occupied Kashmir were killed like stray dogs and women brazenly raped. Over one year has elapsed. which finds no place for the Indian Muslims unless they adhere to Hindutva and agree to join the ranks of Sudras (untouchables). They do not recall the deep wounds they have consistently inflicted upon Pakistan without any sense of remorse. On the slightest pretext. 2001 in which not a single parliamentarian was killed. injured or even abused. While the whole nation demanded for blood of Pakistan on mere suspicion. Indian Muslims are looked with suspicion and treated shabbily. 23 . This kind of frenetic fury and war mongering were again seen in the aftermath of 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. but Indian leaders have not forgotten the incident and refuse to recommence composite dialogue.

but it was not ready to accept the Muslim League and the Quaid-i-Azam as representatives of the Muslims. Maulana Abu Al-Kalam Azad later admitted that Patel and Nehru had accepted the separate state of Pakistan on the basis of misunderstanding and their untrue consideration that it will fall in the lap of the Congress and India like a ripened fruit due to economic and financial problems. Owing to the continuous refusal of the two-nation theory and insistence on the joint nationality.Congress responsible for division The Bahartiya Janta Party (BJP) expelled former foreign minister Jaswant Singh from the party for appreciating the Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah in his book 'Jinnah. It is conceded that the biased attitude and discriminatory treatment of the British and Hindus against the Muslims forced the Muslim leadership and public to the establishment of a separate country. He proposed to form a state where the Muslims could not only lead a peaceful life but also could establish an Islamic. Independence' while the Congress workers expressed their anger and hatred by burning a thousand copies of the book. The day will be very bad for the politics of the country when the sequence of learning and holding discussion will close among the political parties of India. Partition. Jaswant Singh is also a bigoted nationalist and against the establishment of Pakistan like other Indian leaders. the BJP proved that the 24 . democratic and welfare society by publishing and disseminating the Islamic teachings and their ideas. Jaswant Singh said that the matter he wrote in the book was part of the history and he has not committed any sin by writing the book. Before it. the Muslims refused to accept anything less than Pakistan which was established due to their democratic struggle. the Hindu-Muslim riots occurred due to this inflexibility and Muslim enmity. However. The British and Hindu critics admit the transparent role of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah with regard to the establishment of Pakistan and the division of the sub-continent. the Congress used to cause the commotion of insult across the country. By expelling its 30-year-old loyal leader from the party. After a three-day meeting in Simla. Jawaharlal Nehru and Patel is also part of the history. who were usurping their rights. India.

At the time of the division. Thinker of Pakistan. Allama Iqbal presented the idea of a separate country for the Muslims in the united India. Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah tried his best that the Congress¶ Brahmin leadership should assure the protection of the rights of the Muslims by admitting the separate identity of the Muslims. which was not tolerated by the narrow-minded.

The extremist BJP could not tolerate it and awarded severe punishment to its old leader by expelling him from the party. Unfortunately. Khan Abdul Wali Khan¶s book against Quaid-i-Azam was made public. They should see that no such treatment was meted out to the devotees of Gandhi in Pakistan. Bias.

Indian government instead of paying attention to the report has ignored it. The investigatory commission was informed by the 15 and 12 years old daughters of the unfortunate family that their mother did not want to die and she was not willing to be burnt alive at the pyre but their uncles beat her and forcefully put her on fire. but all of the institutions remain dumb and silent due to their own vested interests. Had this incident taken place in Pakistan. This ritual is known as "sati" in India and is widely practiced among Hindu community all over the country. What will be the mental condition of the innocent children whose father died in front of them a few hours ago and then their unfortunate mother became a victim of the worst kind of violence and was forced to burn alive with her dead husband. They force them to do hard work and give low wages without any other incentives. In Odhampur. the situation on ground speaks otherwise. These children are also sexually victimized which has conveniently been overlooked by the Indian government. According to reports from the Human Rights Commission of India. They were between the ages of 8 to 15 and were being sold for five to twenty thousand rupees. Some commentators think that Indian democracy is famous throughout the world and the condition of human rights is exemplary in India. According to an estimate. Some so-called human rights institutions do their utmost to declare Pakistan a failed state. The victim families were of the view that they were forced to sell their children due to poverty. almost 60 million children are put to rigorous child labour which is unimaginable in a civilized society. According to Indian newspapers a wife was forced to be burnt at the pyre of her husband after his death. However. The children sold here were not only Muslims but also belonged to Hindu families. 80% of these children were girls who were traded for money. the bleak picture of Indian children's poverty comes from an official Indian source and cannot be set aside as a work of prejudice or propaganda. more than eleven thousand young children are abducted daily who never see their parents again in their life time. These incidents take place regularly in the biggest democracy of the world. the so-called champions of human rights would have raised lots of hue and cry. No one from the village came to rescue her. hundreds of children were brought to be sold in the local market for human trade.Exploitation of children and women National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) is an official human rights body of India. a district in the held Kashmir. Factory owners prefer to employ young children in India and use them as cheap labour. The girls were so much affected by the incident that they became unconscious. Lives of children and women in India have assumed such a horrible shape that in some parts of India the 26 . Some would have declared society responsible for it and some would have targeted religion. Furthermore. These children were holding banners which said: µbuy us¶. It has revealed in its report that young children are tortured in India which is a matter of embarrassment for the country. After the incident both of the girls were unclaimed. Nevertheless.

Particularly women and children are treated in the most horrifying manner.selling and buying of children has become a ritual. This ugly blemish on the Indian face is a proof of its hypocritical policies. 27 . The economic giant of South Asia does not look at the cancer of human trade. The worst kind of human rights violations take place in Indian occupied Kashmir and the main victims are unarmed civilians and innocent youth that are victimized due to their religions.

This miserable state of Pakistan gave the Congress leaders a chance to chant that Pakistan would soon beseech India for reunion. the Gandhi family had been dominant in Indian politics since the very beginning. They claimed that the division of India was unnatural. First of all. Indira Gandhi was so full of hatred that when she was doing her best to break Pakistan. but India¶s policy of double standards is at its highest point and it has started anti-Pakistan activities. the son of the ruling Congress party¶s Sonia Gandhi. The people of India call Mr Gandhi µBapoo¶ and µMahatma¶.Role of the Gandhi family Rahul Gandhi. This just goes to show that India itself is involved in state terrorism. had always been conspiring against Pakistan. Congress. not a super power. While praising Pakistan¶s role for the solution of this problem. It again wants to make Pakistan a target of its 30 . His statues are fixed at many places. History proves that this never happened. India spread a network of conspiracies and used some nationalist Balochi leaders to separate Balochistan from Pakistan. Even then it had failed to stop terrorism. they rather always wanted to harm it. Pakistan faced and foiled the conspiracies of Congress even with little financial assets and small army. we see that India¶s ruling party. The Gandhi family sowed the seed of hatred towards Pakistan and Muslims. Pakistan was refused its share in ammunition and assets. This he says was a big success of Congress. The spokesman of Pakistan¶s foreign ministry described it as an intervention in Pakistan¶s internal affairs and an attempt to destabilise Pakistan. they say that India backs away from its promises. In fact. Its agenda is to stop Pakistan from developing at any cost. If we look back at Pakistan¶s relationship with India. He announced to start a new chapter in the Indo-Pak relations on the basis of tolerance and mutual trust. That is why their leaders never accepted Pakistan. They did not want to develop relations with Pakistan because they believed that Pakistan wouldn¶t survive for long. It is India¶s policy of double standards that it wants to have friendly relations with Pakistan when she is also conspiring against this country. The Congress government of India wants to make Pakistan its market place without solving the basic issues. Although India is a nuclear power. People of both the countries realise the need of better relations.000 soldiers are there in the held Kashmir and it has also built fences along the Line of Control. The story of Indian atrocities on the Kashmiris is quite long. yet it wants to impose its decisions on others. Congress started its plans to eliminate Pakistan soon after its creation. It started with indiscriminate killing of refugees. The European Union has described The Occupied Kashmir as a horrible paradise and criticised India. Its 700. claimed that the Gandhi family not only got freedom from the British for India but also divided Pakistan. The Indian Prime Minister is talking about friendship but at the same time is maligning Pakistan everywhere. she rebuked the Muslims in Delhi¶s Red Fort because she felt that their slogans in her favour were not full of zeal. But the Congress failed miserably.

May our nation understand the Indian designs and think about our country¶s security and safety. ³The credit of breaking Pakistan goes to my family. 31 . Now when confidence building measures are being taken and negotiations are being held. Rahul Gandhi of the Gandhi family says.´ What does it mean? This is India¶s flagrant policy of hypocrisy.destructive activities and terrorism.

this so-called Nehru dynasty has been occupying the biggest political party of India. They consider it as their fate and live a life of miseries. Later on. People of lower castes can do nothing but serve the people of the higher caste. In the meanwhile. Sanjay Gandhi married a Sikh girl. Manika. appointed her son Sanjay Gandhi as her successor. The so-called secular Hindus have now started calling Maleechs. all the facilities. the poor Dalits leave themselves at the mercy of circumstances. luxuries. Nehrus are basically a high caste of Kashmiri pundits. but others cannot convert into this religion. are in the hands of the party leader Sonia Gandhi. Mrs Indira Gandhi. Indira Gandhi gave birth to two sons ± Sanjay and Rajiv. Indira Gandhi was killed and thus Rajiv Gandhi accidentally came into politics and became the prime minister of India in his mother¶s place. 32 . and became µIndira Gandhi¶. Indira was his only daughter. who was the prime minister of India. Feroze Gandhi. Sonia gave birth to two children ± Rahul and Priyanka. The same thing is there amongst the Jews. Therefore he was entitled to be the prime minister. Even today. Indira married a Parsi gentleman. The highest caste in India is that of a pundit. But Sonia Gandhi is standing on a high pedestal not only as a leader of Congress but also as a member of the Nehru dynasty when in fact the Nehru family and Kashmiri pundits had come to an end four decades ago. and his widow Maneka had to leave the prime minister house because Sonia Gandhi and Maneka Gandhi were not on good terms with each other. Sonia. Sanjay Gandhi died in a plane accident when Indira Gandhi was a prime minister. who was studying and working in London. The only qualification to get all these luxuries is the birth in a higher caste. Feroze Gandhi was a Parsi and Indira belonged to Hindu religion. After completing his education and graduating as a pilot Rajiv Gandhi remained away from politics and started flying a plane in Indian airlines. Sanjay had one son ± Vrun. who has no personal electoral constituency. The strings of the puppet Manmohan Singh. Shudars and Chamars as Dalits. his daughter Indira Gandhi became the prime minister of India. Now the Gandhi family calls itself the Nehru family although Indira married a Parsi and her son a Parsi married a Catholic Christian. a Parsi can be a Parsi only by birth.The fall of Nehru dynasty India is such a society which has been wallowing deep in the filthy mud of caste system for centuries. Jawahar Lal Nehru was a pure Kashmiri pundit. Later. being Kashmiri pundits. Rajiv Gandhi married an Italian Catholic girl. According to the history. The first prime minister of India Jawahar Lal Nehru was a Kashmiri pundit. People of other faiths cannot enter their religion. Congress. People of other faiths cannot convert. her son Rajiv Gandhi became the prime minister. But despite this change of name. especially a Kashmiri pundit. It means a Parsi can change his religion. On the other hand. Only those can be Jews who are born in Jewish families. Feroze Gandhi died in youth. On her death. Only the Hindus of high castes have the right on all resources there. jobs and posts in bureaucracy and other blessings are the right of the people of higher castes only.

Chapter 2 INSIDE INDIA? SOCIO-POLITICAL PICTURE OF THE WORLD¶S BIGGEST DEMOCRACY 33 .

With Amnesty International and the Supreme Court wading in. Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram announced another massive offensive across five states. the dispossession of land. Under the broad brush moniker of Maoists or Naxalites. This has been happening to Sodi Sambo. basic education and development. her case might just be heard. these insurgents represent one of the few forms of resistance from villagers and hill tribesmen against the inequities of continuing feudal structures and the encroachment of global corporations ± backed by the state ± that treats them as awkward impediments to mining plans. gang rapes and. India¶s civil society looks on in abhorrence at what is widely seen as a fullblown war against the poor. forced encampment. etc. and was herself shot in the foot in front of her two small children. for all the vociferous passion of its journalists and activists in calling the powerful to account. She tried to file a complaint. Even the government-appointed council of experts had to conclude that: ³Often any individual who speaks out against the powerful is dubbed a Naxalite and jailed or otherwise silenced through state oppressions. & the vicious paranoia of murdered journalists in Sri Lanka. the state¶s continuing violent campaigns against Maoists go unchecked Along with the plethora of venomous remarks against China.India ignoring its citizens Despite criticism by civil society and the free press. we have to take 35 . The search for Naxalite cadre leads to severe harassment and torture of its supporters and sympathizers. thanks largely to a state response that has been unremittingly heavy-handed: special forces operations. But they have held on to the moral high ground. And yet. the overall impression is of voices screaming into a vacuum.´ Those who try to report these crimes find themselves bundled away to police custody ³for their own protection´. only to find herself under armed guard in a nearby hospital with no visitors allowed and denied the right to travel to Delhi for treatment. a 28-year-old woman from Gompar village in Chattisgarh who says she witnessed security forces murdering nine of her neighbours in October 2009. A couple of troops might even be reprimanded. for some despicable reasons. India appears self-critical. The Naxalites can be brutal. Since no journalists are allowed anywhere near these war zones. the chopping off of children¶s fingers and other body parts. ± all accompanied by tales of extrajudicial killings. Nowhere is this feeling more evident right now than on the issues of insurgencies from Maoists and other left-wing forces raging through India¶s poorest regions. confidently claiming it would target only insurgent leaders. and the villagers under their control often find themselves unwillingly excluded from health services. the arming of vigilante groups.

In the west. but even the physical fight on which it has focused its efforts. In India. ³when we allow the media such freedom to criticize us?´ Too often. in whose name the brutal price of progress is paid. this took centre stage in Vietnam war. This brings us back to the issue of freedom of speech. The editor of one leading news publication admitted that the media¶s efforts were having ³no political impact.´ the government can protest. 36 . then at least for its impact on operational effectiveness. however. which is preoccupied with winning India¶s support in Afghanistan and salivating over her enormous defence budgets. and also its implications for military strategy. ³How can we be authoritarian. tired of a system that stands so apart from the moral conscience embodied in its academics. Militaries have long struggled to balance the rights of a free press with the risk that they might record something that damages its credibility. military Public Relations (PR) departments ± even dedicated You Tube channels ± which seek to ³sell´ the campaign back home and abroad. if not for moral reasons. and take heart in the strength of ideas to gradually permeate through generations of leaders. the government hides behind the argument that the Maoist are impeding economic development that could improve the lives of the poor ± ignoring studies that show this model of development may have actually increased the number of poor by 100 million. When it does try to justify itself. the only victory of expression is its freedom to exist.his word for it. It has made governments acutely conscious of legitimacy. however. The failure to listen means the government is losing not just the battle of hearts and minds.´ The most pessimistic conclusion to draw is that free speech in India only serves to strengthen those who flout other articles in the constitution. The Naxalite issue shows up a yawning chasm between what civil society says and what the government does. 319 security forces were killed compared to 219 Maoists insurgents± an extraordinary tally given the discrepancy in each side¶s resources. activists. That thinking has led to embedded journalism. In 2009. Or we can be more optimistic. rather than its power to effect change. The fact is that any number of exposes on the wrongs of this campaign has little or no impact on voters with so many other issues and allegiances to consider. which many in the US military felt was a war fought and lost on the evening news and in the pages of Time Magazine. One of the key lessons of modern counterinsurgency is that you have to take the voters ± and therefore the media ± along. journalists and ordinary citizens. there seems to be a scant concern for legitimacy in the anti-Naxal campaign beyond flagrant attempts to silence witnesses and bar journalists and activists from affected areas. Nor does the government fear the opprobrium of the international community.

Farm suicides From 2006 to 2008, Maharashtra saw 12, 493 farm suicides. That is 85 per cent higher than the 6,745 suicides it recorded during 1997-1999. That was the worst three-year period for any Indian state ever
The loan waiver year of 2008 saw 16,196 farm suicides in the country, according to the National Crime Records Bureau. Compared to 2007, that¶s fall of just 436. According to economist Professor K. Nagaraj who worked in-depth on farm suicide data says, ³The numbers leave little room for comfort and none at all for self-congratulation.´ There were no major changes in the trend that set in from the late 1990s and worsened after 2002. The dismal truth is that very high numbers of farm suicides still occur within a fast decreasing farm population. Between just the Census of 1991 and that of 2001, nearly 8 million cultivators quit farming. A year from now, the 2011 Census will tell us how many more quit in this decade. It is not likely to be less. It could even draw that 8 million figure as the exodus from farming probably intensified after 2001. The state-wise farm suicide ratios ± number of farmers committing suicide per 100,000 farmers ± are still pegged on the outdated 2001 figures. So the 2011 Census, with more authentic counts of how many farmers there really are, might provide an unhappy update on what is going on. Focusing on farm suicides as a share of total suicides in India misleads. That way, it¶s ³aha! The percentage is coming down.´ That¶s silly. For one thing, the total number of suicides (all groups, not just farmers) is increasing ± in a growing population of India. Farm suicides are rising within a declining farm population. Two, an all-India picture disguises the intensity. The devastation lies in the big five states (Maharashtra Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh). These account for two-thirds of all farm suicides during 2003-08. Take just the big 5 ± their percentage of all farm suicides has gone up. Worse, even their percentage of total all-India suicides (all categories) has risen. Poor states like Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh have been doing very badly for some years now. During the period from 1997-2002, farm suicides in the big 5 states accounted for roughly one out of every 12 of all suicides in the country. From 2003-08, they accounted for nearly one out of every 10 suicides. The NCRB has farm suicide data of 12 years. Actually, farm data appears in its records from 1995 onwards, but some states failed to report for the first two years. Hence 1997, from when all states have been reporting their farm suicide data, is a more reliable base year. The NCRB has also made access much easier by placing all past year ³Accidental Death & Suicides in India´ reports on its website. 37

The 12-year period allows us to compare farm suicide numbers from 19972002, as how they turned out in the next 6-year period from 2003-2008. All 12 years were pretty bad, but the latter six were decidedly worse. Reading a µtrend¶ into a single year¶s dip or rise is misleading. Better to look at 3-year or 6-year periods within 1997-2008. For instance, Maharashtra saw a decline in the farm suicide number in 2005, but the very next year proved to be its worst ever. Since 2006, the state has been the focus of many initiatives. Manmohan Singh¶s, Prime Minister of India¶s visit to Vidharbha in 2006 brought the ³Prime Minister¶s Relief Package´ of Rs. 3,750 crore for six crisisridden districts of the region. This came atop Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh¶s Rs. 1,075 crore ³relief package.´ Then followed the nearly Rs. 9,000 crore that was Maharashtra¶s share of the Rs. 70,000 crore central loan waiver for farmers. To which the state government added Rs. 6,200 crore for those farmers not covered by the waiver. The State added Rs. 500 crore for a one-time settlement (OTS) for poor farmers who had been excluded from the waiver altogether because they owned over five acres of land. In all, the amounts committed to fighting the agrarian crisis in Maharashtra exceeded Rs. 20,000 crore across 2006, 2007 and 2008. (And that¶s not counting huge handouts to the sugar barons.) Yet, that proved to be the worst three-year period ever for any state at any time since the recording of farm data began. From 2006-08, Maharashtra saw, 12,493 farm suicides. That is nearly 600 more than the previous worst from the years 2002-2005 and 85 per cent higher than the 6,745 suicides recorded in the three-year period from 1997-1999. The same government was in power, incidentally, in the worst six years span. Besides, these shockingly higher numbers are emerging within a shrinking farm population. By 2001, 42 percent of Maharashtra¶s population was already urban. Its farmer base has certainly not grown. So was the loan waiver scheme has been useless? The idea of a waiver was not a bad at all. And it was right to intervene. Most of the specific actions were misguided and bungled. Yet it could also be argued at the relief the waiver brought to some farmers and the suicide numbers of 2008 could have been a lot worse. The waiver was a welcome step for farmers, but its architecture was flawed. A point strongly made in this journal (Oh! What a lovely waiver, March 10, 2008). It dealt only with bank credit and ignored moneylender debt. So only those farmers with access to institutional credit would benefit. Tenant farmers in Andhra Pradesh and poor farmers in Vidharbha and elsewhere get their loans mainly from moneylenders. So, in fact, farmers in Kerala, where everyone has a bank account, were more likely to gain. (Kerala was also the one state to address the issue of moneylender debt.) The 2008 waiver also excluded those holding over five acres, making no distinction between irrigated and non irrigated land. This devastated many struggling farmers with eight to 10 acres of poor, dry land. On the other hand, West Bengal¶s farmers, the giant numbers of small holders below the 5-acre limit, stood to gain far more. Every suicide has a multiplicity of causes. But when you have nearly 200,000 38

of them, it makes sense to seek broad common factors within that group. As Dr Nagaraj repeatedly pointed out, the suicides appear concentrated in regions of high commercialization of agriculture and very high peasant debt. Cash crop farmers seemed more vulnerable to suicide than those growing food crops. Yet the basic underlying causes of the crisis remained untouched. The predatory commercialization of the countryside; a massive decline in investment in agriculture; the withdrawal of bank credit at a time of soaring input prices; the crash in farm incomes combined with an explosion of cultivation costs; the shifting of millions from food crop to cash crop cultivation with all its risks; the corporate hijack of every major sector of agriculture including, and especially, seed; growing water stress and moves towards privatization of that resource. The government was trying to beat the crisis ± leaving in place all its causes ± with a one-off waiver. In late 2007, The Hindu daily carried the sorry result emerging from Dr Nagaraj¶s study of NCRB data: that nearly 1.5 lakh peasants had ended their lives in despair between 1997 and 2005. Just days later, Union minister for agriculture Sharad Pawar confirmed those figures in Parliament (Rajya Sabha Starred Question No. 238, Nov, 30, 2007) citing the same NCRB data. It is tragic that 27 months later, the paper had to run a headline saying that the number had climbed to nearly 2 lakh. Mocking its victims, heckling its critics and cosmetic changes won¶t make it go away or help the reality fade away!

False claims of secularism
The modern world looks at India as a beacon-house of South Asia due to safeguards provided to freedom of expression in its constitution. Its founder and an important political figure Jawahar Lal Nehru writes in his book ³Discovery of India" that ³Tolerance is practiced in the circle of Indian unity regarding rites and faiths of people and difference of opinion is welcomed.´ But his speech made on 23rd February 1956 is quite important which he delivered in the Indian parliament while talking about Hindu extremism and militarism:´ We Indians have a distorted personality. We talk about non-violence, our great culture and civilization but our manners and social behaviours have deteriorated enough that we cannot call them civilized." Most of the political parties of India, be it All India Congress the ruling party or Bhartia Janta Party (BJP) currently the main opposition party, bear the same stamp. Due to their hypocrisy, India is in quite an uncivilized condition so far as the freedom of expression as referred by Jawahar lal Nehru is concerned. A famous Pakistani Film producer, Hassan Zaidi who was working on a film with famous Indian counterpart Mahesh Bhatt, could not get a room in a Mumbai hotel as Pakistanis and Bangladeshis were not allowed to stay in that hotel. The manager of the hotel stated that most of the hotels do the same as both Pakistan and Bangladesh were suspected of being involved in Mumbai bomb blasts. The treatment of India with Pakistanis and Bangladeshis is quite deplorable. India claims to be the biggest democracy of the world and loses no chance to accuse Pakistan. But its own face is quite ugly. It is despicable the way it has banned Pakistanis and Bangladeshis from staying in Mumbai hotels or guest houses. In any case, this makes one thing clear that India is not a well-wisher of Pakistan. Accusing Pakistan for the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in 2008 further has made it obvious. At one hand it shows such attitudes to Pakistanis but on the other hand some of our artists feel it an honor to work in the films or TV shows of the neighbouring country. But the way they are treated there is an open secret now. Although India wants to enjoy amicable relations with the SAARC countries but its practical behavior is quite different. It¶s hypocritical attitudes have made one thing clear that its attitude towards the SAARC countries is based on biases and prejudices. Every year at the occasion of the SAARC meeting it claims to make the Organisation an effective forum for the prosperity and welfare of the SAARC countries. But in reality it does not want to have friendly relations with any country. Indian attitude towards all SAARC countries, be it Maldives, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, or Bangladesh, is prejudice oriented and it has not yet recognized Pakistan¶s existence. Mistreatment with the Pakistanis and Bangladeshis is normal for India. Due to its clandestine activities and dangerous intentions anything can be expected. If a country like India which claims to be the torch-bearer of democracy lowers itself to the negative strategies what remains behind? There is no doubt that Pakistan has done its best to extend a hand of friendship with India but all of its efforts ended in smoke due to India¶s extremist and stubborn 40

The Government of India Acts of 1909 and 1919 were to incorporate the Muslim demand of separate electorate and the two nation theory ultimately led to the division of the Indian sub-continent. the same concept was regularly nourished. It has become an important feature of Indian politics to use religion as a tool for political motives. In the modern era it appears that the concept of secularism is affecting its real spirit by changing into a dynamic force. Hence in 1976 a constitutional amendment was introduced to add the word secularism as the state dispensation. After the political division of the country. It is not merely a matter for film producer Hassan Zaidi. SAARC countries should learn a lesson from Indian attitude towards Pakistan and realize that all efforts of peace. In other words. What a contradiction between its claims of democracy at international forums and its actual practice. At one hand. After the independence of India.attitude. a secular constitution was adopted in India but the sectarian trends got even stronger and entered in political and social spheres. religion is taken as a private affair of citizens and not of the government and the state. secularism was welded to the preamble of the Indian constitution but on the other hand Indian political life was deeply wedded to religion and Hindu beliefs. India is revealing its horrible face in Kashmir by indulging in criminal activities against the Kashmiris. Vishwa Hindu Parishad. during the British period the English rulers promoted sectarian politics for their political interests. Many political parties of modern India like Akali Dal. the whole SAARC film industry should take notice of such treatment to their citizens in India. As India was a multi-religious society. Indian political life bears a deep stamp of religion. Practically speaking. Sectarian riots were frequently erupted in the Indian states of Gujrat. international agreements and reconciliations with India will be futile. The Mughal kings left deep imprints of religious tolerance on the Indian soil that resulted in an atmosphere of religious unity. It is the need of the hour that Pakistan and other SAARC countries should take a stern stand at the prejudice of India to improve the situation with its immediate neighbours. Bihar and Andhra Pradesh which had political objectives on the basis of religious extremism. and Rashtaria Sewak Sangat (RSS) have been constructed 41 . It is mere futility to expect a better attitude from India. At one hand secularism means to provide religious groups equal opportunities and freedom of faith and worship but on the other hand it also demands the state to be above all religious belief and faiths. They adopted the policy of "divide and rule" which further strengthened roots of sectarian politics in the entire region. As a result secularism remained merely a slogan whereas the non-secular aspects are consolidated strongly. Since ancient times. Maharashtra. All India Muslim League. The controversy over Ram Janam Bhomi and the destruction of Babri Mosque are some glaring examples. All of them should suspend their diplomatic ties with India. Indian politics is drenched in religiosity: from elections to the allocation of ministries all matters are settled on religious grounds. it was thought necessary to construct its society on the basis of secularism. Later on. Its apparent demands are different from the practical ones. it must be paid in the same coin.

All India Muslim League. 1992 and December 27. So great was the sense of outrage from the Muslim community in India that the Indian Prime Minister and the Central Government said on December 7. The religious base is playing an important role in determining key trends of the Indian voters. THE absence of any condemnation of the vandalism of the demolition of the Babri Masid on December 6. such as All India Muslim League in Kerala and Akali Dal in Punjab. Dr. during the controversy of Ram Janam Bhomi and Babri Mosque Shankar Achariya of Kashi tried to seek a peaceful solution and played an important role between the two sects but miserably failed. We can find a proof of amalgamation of religion in politics in the general elections of the parliament of 1977 when the Imam of Jamia Masjid of Delhi appealed to the Muslims of the country to vote for Bhartia Janta Party (BJP). 42 . Prime Minister VP Singh¶s government was the best example. These parties try to solve problems of a particular religious sect by using their political might. B. who has written many research articles on Indian secularism. Now-adays the tenure of collision governments is not determined by the majority views rather it is based on the unity of the religious problems. Donald Smith. Anglo-Indian Association. The same trend is making it impossible to attain the non-religious role of democracy and national unity in India and the concept of sectarian democracy is getting popular. Shromati Akali Dal. To serve their political ends using religion has become an important tradition of Indian democracy. Apart from it he also declared his full support to Indira Gandhi in the general elections of 1980 and asked the Muslims to vote for Congress. Ambedkar added to the same theory when he said: ³This concept of Hinduism is so vast that it encircles all aspects of life from birth till death.´ The theory of secularism in the Indian constitution is nothing more than paperwork and its practical demands have assumed different shapes whereas the true face of Indian secularism is fading away. 1992 was a conspicuous aspect of the Ayodhya verdict of the Allahabad High Court. R. The criterion of votes is not the candidate¶s ability but the related religious identity. On the basis of the growing nexus between the modern politics and religion it can be said that religion and politics are indispensable now. has raised an important question to the Indians due to the rising influence of religion on Indian politics: ³Is India really a secular state?´ The Indians have to answer this question realistically if they want to be considered responsible citizens that say and believe the same thing. Moreover many religious based parties of central and regional nature Like Arya Samaj. Rashtaria Sewak Sangat (RSS) and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) have always influenced practical politics of the country. However. Sometimes one thinks that without appeasing these parties there is no proper future for the political governments. Religion has always been playing an important role in politics of the different Indian states. Such evidences show that the classical form of secularism is almost non-existent in India and its politics and it has become impossible for the state to play its impartial role amongst all religious communities.on the basis of religious beliefs and preachings. 1992 that the mosque would be re-built.

The judgment. if the Masjid had not been demolished and had remained on the site. it took the demolition as a fait accompli. After holding that the area beneath the central dome of the erstwhile Masjid must be allotted to Hindus because of their faith that lord Ram¶s place of birth was there. legalised and legitimized the 1992 demolition. (as the demolition in 1992 did in favour of the Hindu plaintiffs). On the other hand. The judgment is bound to create a burning communal problem in India. 1992.The Ayodhya judgment of the Allahabad High Court made no note of the vandalism of December 6. as if the disputed 2. and the areas covered by the Ram Chabutara and Sita Rasoi should be allotted to the Nirmohi Akhara. two-thirds to the two Hindu plaintiffs and one third to the Muslim plaintiff by metes and bounds. the court said that the remaining area of the disputed site should be divided. 43 . the court would first order the restitution of the pre-exisiting state of affairs.77-acre site was vacant land. The test of the soundness of the court¶s verdict is this: assuming the correctness of the High Court¶s findings that the area beneath the central dome of the mosque was the birthplace of Lord Ram or that the Masjid was built over the ruins of a temple in 1528. It is an elementary rule of justice in court that when a party to a litigation takes the law into its own hands and alters the existing state of affairs to its advantage. would the court have ordered a division and partitioning of the disputed site in the manner it has directed? This could have been done only by the Masjid of 500 years being brought down to create a vacant site ±± which clearly would have been an impossible direction. as the decree of the court proceeded on the basis that there was no Masjid on the disputed site today. therefore. It will leave simmering resentment in the Muslim community. for the judgment will be seen as the court¶s condonation and legitimization of a place of worship having been vandalized.

she does not hesitate to take off its gloves.India¶s hostile attitude The past 63 years have shown India¶s tendency to throw its weight about and browbeat its neighbours. there have been our own faults and follies. The Indian foreign minister ridiculed 44 . Of course. however. as noted by some American leaders. Then again. Even the expectations raised at the Gilani-Singh meeting in Sharm El Sheikh in 2009 were snuffed out when Manmohan Singh¶s colleagues publicly expressed their misgivings. about not setting preconditions for the dialogue had raised fresh hopes. the most remarkable thing was the near unanimity with which the Pakistanis not only condemned the Mumbai attacks. With her smaller neighbours. expected that with the restoration of a democratic dispensation in Pakistan and with virtually all major political parties committed to establishing a friendly relationship with India. as well as his own visit to Washington in later days. however. It was. in 1971 India committed aggression in East Pakistan and during the capture of Kargil in early 1999. but also acknowledged that their country needed to take concrete steps to assuage India¶s anguish. None of this. and in some cases. more than the Indian machinations. Instead. Since then. for he placed his readiness for talks in the context of Pakistan being able to create an environment conducive to negotiations. deciding thereafter to suspend the dialogue with Pakistan that was understandable. This led many to believe that Prime Minister Singh¶s remarks in Srinagar were merely meant to coincide with US Secretary Hillary Clinton¶s visit to Pakistan. however. However. With those that are bigger and more powerful. it did not indicate anything new. His pronouncement neither accompanied nor followed any move to re-engage Islamabad in a meaningful dialogue on all outstanding issues. The Mumbai terror attack in November 2008 angered the Indian government. The Pakistanis kept pleading for the resumption of dialogue. appears to have had much impact on the Indian establishment and politics. while the Indians continued to rebuff these offers. Singh¶s statement in October 2009 in Srinagar. we do not claim to be the champions of virtue either. Delhi declined to respond to the roadmap for resuming talks that Pakistan had conveyed to Indian officials. New Delhi would engage in a comprehensive dialogue aimed at resolving the differences and issues that have plagued ties between the two South Asian neighbours. India tends to adopt a moralistic and intellectually superior tone. that have contributed to our failures and losses. the Pakistani political leadership had been engaged in a major effort to convince New Delhi that it was sincere in its desire and efforts to cooperate with India with the common objective of confronting extremists and other internal and regional problems. In fact.

coming from an administration that had publicly expressed a desire to promote Indo-Pakistan normalization and to work for the resolution of the Kashmir problem. The Indian army chief¶s latest statement in which he spoke of his army¶s capacity to fight a two-front war evoked great surprise and disappointment. much less wage two wars against two neighbours simultaneously. but also as a potential counter-weight to China. however. with the Indian army chief Gen Kapoor remarks that ³the possibility of a limited war in a nuclear overhang is still a reality. What has been particularly annoying is the failure of the Obama administration to act on its seemingly wise policy pronouncements during the election campaign. what is required is a dispassionate analysis of what these signals indicate for Pakistan and sensitizing our friend¶s to Indian actions. that we can dismiss these claims as mere rhetoric or unfounded. But while it conveyed hostility and belligerence. India appears to have raised the ante. This was strange. This does not mean. While we must not be distracted from the objective of seeking a peaceful resolution of our differences with India.even the offer of back-channel exchanges and diplomacy. There could be more evidences of the increasing inclination of the Indian forces to have a role in the India-Pakistan equation. Another important factor is the newfound confidence acquired from the special relationship that the US has so eagerly conferred on India. at least in the Indian subcontinent´. 45 . This statement exposed American hidden relationship with India. his words were neither realistic nor achievable as India does not have the military capability to successfully initiate its much-heralded µcold start¶ strategy. there has been a slow but perceptible change in India where an increasing numbers are reported to have insisted on being more than merely a µhearing¶ on issues relating to Pakistan. not only as its strategic partner. agreeing to inject into the US-India joint statement a provision ³to work jointly to deal with terrorism emanating from India¶s neighbourhood´. we must not show undignified haste towards that end. No less important could be the growing influence of rightwing parties and religious groups that want India to adopt more nationalist policies vis-à-vis its neighbours. the US appears to have gone along with Indian allegations. Instead. It was then that realization dawned on the Pakistani leadership that the country¶s repeated requests were becoming demeaning. According `to some observers. especially Siachen and Sir Creek. a more visible role for it is in order. Instead of pressurizing India to reduce its presence in Afghanistan and ceasing to stir up trouble in Balochistan. The Indian armed forces have gradually come to believe that given the growing challenges that India faces both domestically and on its frontiers.

they must first give importance to the solution of the Kashmir issue because neither can the relationship be improved nor can durable peace be established in South Asia until the Kashmir issue is resolved. If the Indian leadership and the people want friendly relationship with Pakistan. We separated as the result of a historic and evolutionary process. It is our right and our duty to express our anger against the former Indian president¶s bragging. Brahman leadership had accepted the 3-June formula with a wishful thinking that the newly created Islamic state would not survive long. India¶s proposal to keep the Muslims out of their majority areas is not only unacceptable but also against Pakistan ideology. a sort of confederation can be worked out in the next fifty years. The fact is that millions of the Muslims in the subcontinent sacrificed their lives and honour for the creation of Pakistan and founded a separate state on the basis of two-nation theory. India has come to the negotiation table with the sole purpose of improving its own economy by ensuring a smooth flow of gas through a pipe line in Pakistan. our rulers should keep in mind the miserable state of Muslims before adopting a policy of friendship towards it. Muslims have always known Hindu¶s anti-Pakistan mentality and its imperialistic designs. if Germany can unite again and if the European Union can become a confederation. India accepted that. Will there be some improvement in the miserable state of the Muslims if there are friendly relations between India and Pakistan? We believe that there will be no improvement. why can¶t there be a confederation between Pakistan and India?´ The Indian leader¶s statement that a confederation between both the free and autonomous countries can be established is ludicrous. Both Pakistan and India cannot resolve the Kashmir issue without the consent of the Kashmiris. thank God with determination of the people of Pakistan.The myth of confederation They talked of a federation and a confederation even in 1947. The notice boards like µMuslim water¶ and µHindu water¶ at railway stations and at other public places prove that both the nations had and have different identities. We share with each other neither a common culture nor a common history. ³If the hatred between Russia and America can come to an end. 46 . The proposal of handing over Kashmir to the UN is in the interest of Kashmiris. Even after living together for centuries. According to a former president of India Abdul Kalam. Lord Mountbatten longed to be made the governor-general of Pakistan and India. But. It is due to these different identities that the British rulers agreed on the separate electoral system in the subcontinent. this country is not only standing on solid ground but also has become a nuclear power. but Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah rejected the idea. India and Pakistan. There was no justification for partition if we had to establish a confederation with India. the Muslims and Hindus could not come closer to each other. They refused to give Pakistan its due share in the assets and created the Kashmir issue only to destabilize Pakistan. Therefore.

The separatist movements in India gave birth to such groups which did not demand a separate country but had created immense problems of law and order. It is called Naxalite in English because it is named after a village in Western Bengal. In 1970 the Indian army started military operation against these villagers demanding rights and autonomy and forcibly crushed the movement. frame and face. In the past. and share other traits. Naxalite movement was initiated as a result of the mistreatment of poor local farmers by the landlords but now it has spread in every corner of the country. in India. Therefore. All these areas are replete with poverty and misery. It¶s a matter of gratification for Pakistan that there is not a single separatist movement here. It has established a parallel government in the county. Almost every individual of these areas is a member of these organizations. The upper class Hindus declare the lower class Hindu as untouchable and lower them from the status of humanity and basic dignity. India has tried off and on to get rid of these separatist groups but they are getting stronger with the passage of time. The areas of Andhra Pradesh. The movement originated from that village in 1967. Western Bengal.The separatist movements From Kashmir to Assam. The movement ended but was fragmented into groups. Mumbai blasts and any other mishap happens on Indian soil. 2750 people lost their lives in 2006 during the fights between the separatist groups and the Indian army. The area of Chhattees Garh is the centre of Maoists. It is nothing less than a nightmare for the Indian police and army. In Hinduism some people are declared to be inferior because they were born to lower families despite the fact that they are same in physical identity. efforts were made on the instigation of foreign powers to divide Pakistanis but the whole Pakistani nation was organized against such threats besides all superficial differences. Bihar. one can find. Naxal-body. The exact number of separatist groups in India cannot be estimated but they are an outcome of the repulsive caste system and mistreatment with minorities. Sometimes the elders. chiefs. they accuse Pakistan¶s intelligence agencies for the Naxalite movement. Indian rulers quite stubbornly declare that both the Naxalite and Maoist movements are Pakistani sponsored. 49 . Peoples War Group and Maoist groups are leading the separatist movement. several separatist movements trying day and night to get rid of the Indian occupation and to establish their own separate states. Now they play key political role in formation of local and central governments. and feudal of the victims get united to start a rebellion for a separate homeland. It has become a second nature of the Hindus that they think whatever happens in their country is backed by Pakistan. These outcast and deprived people then organized themselves and demand an independent state and greater autonomy. The Naxalite movement is one such movement. According to a Delhi-based South Asia Terrorism Report. Jhar Khand and Orissa are mainly the centre of this movement. The same groups are again active now in the form of a bigger movement.

The Naxalite Movement
In twenty two provinces of Northern India freedom movements are active and resisting Indian control and Military might. The freedom fighters attack the Indian army and are involved in militant attacks on military forces. The Naxalite Movement is one key among them. Its centre is the under-developed rural areas of eastern Bengal. According to a report published in 2009, twenty two districts of the twenty states are under control of the separatists. It comprises of almost 40 percent of the Indian Territory. Its total area is more than 92000 square kilometers and about 20000 armed people live there who are giving military training to another 50000 rebels. That is why the Indian prime minister declared this move a threat for the solidarity of India. Apart from the Northern states Orissa, Jhar Khand, and Chhattees Garh, located in the eastern side of Bengal, the South Eastern states, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala and the small but thickly populated states of Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram between Bangladesh and Burma are also guarded by the Brahman imperialists of India. All these provinces are like forts. People living in these areas are neither willing to recognize themselves as Hindus nor are ready to bow down before the Brahmans of Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. Hence there is perpetual tension between the government and the freedom fighters. An encounter between the law enforcing agencies and the freedom fighters is a routine matter in Indian politics. In 2004, in an encounter between the Naxalite rebels 1639 persons were killed including the police, Para-military forces and the rebels. The number of skirmishes in 2005 was fewer but the death toll was much higher than previous years. There was comparative peace in 2006 but in 2007 the death toll rose to more than 2000. According to a report, the Naxalite movement is spreading rapidly in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. The difficult terrain and the thick forests of the state provide heaven for the Naxalite rebels to hide and launch terrorist attacks. Apart from the states of Jhar Khand and Chhattees Garh the Naxalite rebels are already active in the state of Assam. Due to their activities security personnel, police, and the para-military forces move like an army convoy. The same strategy is being adopted in Andhra Pradesh which has frightened the state police to great extent. Hence the security personnel and police are busy in saving their own skin. As a result the control of Andhra Pradesh has fallen in the hands of the Naxalite rebels. The Naxalites are instituting their own courts as they did in Assam, Manipur and Mizoram and making it sure that their rule is established there. They are also busy in extending their influence to Uttar Pradesh through Nepal by collaborating with the Maoist rebels. What will be the fate of India? It is too soon to predict that how long India will sustain and protect its present boundaries and resist such freedom movements. However, keeping in view the attitude of the Brahmans towards the lower caste Hindus, it can be surely said that whatever measures the Brahman imperialists take 50

for Akhand Bharat (united India) dismemberment is its fate. How long it will take depends upon the courage of the Naxalites, Maoists, the Assam Liberation Army and the patience of the slave-like population of backward provinces of India, who not only have gotten their maps and flags printed but also issue their own currency to the desired independent states.

The Khalistan Movement
Before the establishment of Pakistan, Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah offered the Sikhs equal rights, independence and freedom to look after their religious places if they were willing to join Pakistan but the Sikh¶s so-called Akali leader, Master Tara Singh rejected the offer from the Quaid. He waved his sword in front of the Punjab Assembly in Lahore and provoked the Sikhs for the massacre of Muslims. Master Tara Singh was a Rawalpindi born Hindu whom the Congress projected as the leader of the Sikhs because of his enmity towards the Muslims. Quite shrewdly, the Congress misguided the Sikhs and prepared them for the division of (United) Punjab. When the East Punjab emerged after independence, the Hindu leadership of Congress showed quite a discriminatory attitude toward the Sikhs. Annoyed by the Hindu leadership of the Congress they launched a movement for the establishment of independent Sikh state named as Khalistan. During the Khalistan Movement the Indian government blindly used force and killed thousands of Sikhs. To eliminate the movement of Sikhs the Congress divided Eastern Punjab into three provinces namely: East Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. The Sikh movement hibernated for some time, but in 1970 it again emerged as an organized movement. India used a lot of force to control it. Meanwhile the Sikhs declared the Golden temple of Amritsar as the head-quarters for the Khalistan Movement. All of the Sikh leadership including Jarnail Singh Bhindranwala and leaders of the All India Sikh Students Federation were operating from Golden Temple. When the Khalistan Movement was at its peak, the Khalistan Movement leadership was sending out messages from Golden Temple to the Sikh freedom fighters. The Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi ordered the army to attack the Golden Temple in 1984. All the prominent Sikh leaders and thousands of other followers were killed in brutal military operation called Operation Blue Star. As a result in the villages and cities of East Punjab the Hindus were targeted and mercilessly killed. The armed Hindu groups also mercilessly butchered Sikhs, their women and children. The world knows how minorities are treated in India. The demolition of Babri Mosque, the construction of Ram Mandir (or Ram Temple), setting churches on fire and the operation in the Golden Temple of the Sikhs and their massacre are the ugly scars on the secular face of India. How can India hide a long list of atrocities like the massacre of Sikhs in the name of Operation Blue Star, killing in East Punjab, the murder of Indira Gandhi and the Hindu¶s efforts to eliminate the Sikhs? Twenty five years have passed since murder of Indira Gandhi, the ex-prime minister of India. She was killed by one of her own Sikh body guards. The main reason of the murder was the operation blue star conducted at the Golden Temple on the 6th June 1984. It was an act of desecration of the most sacred and religious place of the Sikhs. During the operation thousands of Sikhs were killed but the Indian government still treats the Sikhs as the accused. India does not allow the names of 52

the Sikhs who died naturally or unnaturally to get erased from the list of suspicious persons. The very reason it does not allow the Sikhs to live peacefully anywhere in the world, India is afraid of the fact that Sikhs may restart their movement for an independent state at any time and may create more trouble for the country. All these facts expose the realities behind Indian claim of a secular democracy. A huge minority is being spied upon and is regarded anti-India. Thousands of Sikhs were killed after the assassination of Indira Gandhi. The Congress leaders themselves provoked rioters on the roads of Delhi. Since then the Sikhs are living in India as a paranoid minority. The heirs of those who lost their lives in the anti-Sikh riots in 1984 were given one million rupees as compensation on the orders of the Indian Supreme Court. Can this monetary compensation for aggrieved families be an alternative to the lives of the deceased? After their killings at such a mass scale, the Sikhs chose other countries, particularly, Canada as final refuge and also to initiate their activities. But India later started objecting at activities of Sikhs in those countries too. The Canadian government is neither helping them economically or politically nor have the Sikhs established their exiled government of Khalistan there. There is something wrong with India¶s thinking and political system as it looks at every gathering of minorities as suspicious. It should also review its attitudes, state practices and people¶s behaviors towards minorities. What rights and freedoms has it granted to the minorities? The situation in Occupied Kashmir, East Punjab, Chhattees Garh, Maharashtra, and Madhya Pradesh, Eastern Uttar Pradesh, Jhar Khand, West Bengal, Western Orissa and Bihar is a proof of the fact that Indian state has deprived its own population of the fundamental right to live. The western countries talk about India as a secular and democratic country but the reality is very different from the general perception about India. It has just disguised itself in a cloak to safeguard the vested interests of a particular class. The western media does not talk about these facts but India is a failed democracy and is indulging in the acts of terrorism against its own population, especially those belong to the minorities. The extremist Hindus are involved in the murder of millions of innocent Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, and other religious and cultural minorities.

The Hindu groups involve themselves in sectarian violence with such a quick pace that the danger of intolerance and extremist activities in India has risen.

I saw him waving hands as he was escorted into a car that drove him out of the campus. Hussain. where his older work greets the visitors. new Puritanism is being carried out in the name of cultural purity and a host of ignorant people are vandalizing art and pushing us towards the pre-renaissance era. I saw a man wearing white Kurta-Pajama complementing the white beard. it was an important assignment. and moving out of my sight. It was a breezy evening. his trademark. The campus was abuzz with the news of his arrival and we rushed from the arts block to the Kennedy Hall. ³A painter has his own perspective of looking at things and it cannot be the basis of initiating criminal proceedings against him. in 1987 where I was a PhD student. he was bare footed! As usual it happens in AMU. He was wearing white kurta-pajama and sported long white beard. A painter at 90s deserves to be sitting at his home and painting his canvas (rather than living in exile). I saw him driving a car.´ Mr. Maqbool Fida Hussain has taken up the nationality of Qatar to escape from the Hindu zealots who have been gunning for his life. I saw Mercedes Benz very slowly moving by my side. photographs and publications. Hussain writes: When I learnt that one of the most celebrated artists of India. It observes. This time he had trimmed his beard and had short hairs. My second encounter with MF Hussain was at JNU. I saw Hussain for the third time in 1995 when I was in Hyderabad working as a city reporter. By the time I realized he was MF Hussain. It was exactly 1980. 68 . Aligarh. but simply because he has been such a colourful personality in India and I have practically grown up reading about his activities.

There are so many such art forms in the [Hindu] temple structures. when I was on the middle of the bridge. In India. I was walking from the opposite side but could not realize who he was. If you don¶t want to see it. In fact. Again. there was a feeling of remorse.F. Suddenly from somewhere. the barefooted man. I had a chance to see him in real flesh and blood.Talibans¶ triumph Indian courts have tried to educate those who claim to have been hurt. M.F. One evening after attending a press conference at the Hyderabad secretariat. Hussain had come there to finalize the huge cutouts to adore the front entrance of the geography department. then don¶t see it. This again was just a coincidence when one evening I saw Hussain walking with few Professors outside the Kaveri Hostel. The only intriguing part of his personality was. It was not because he was known to me or I am an admirer to his paintings. I was returning to my Secundrabad office in a bus when it got flat tires. a stream of thought flows my memory lane at various points of my life. That was when I was an undergraduate student in AMU. and I was enjoying my stroll. rang bells into my ears. such personalities are mobbed by the students and Hussain was no exception. Since. when I first saw M. Ali Murtaza Syed while commenting on the migration of Mr.

I was seeing from the rear glass of the car the image of M F Hussain fading out of my sight. This makes me ponder how long those who uphold the secular. Notwithstanding this. By the time I could realize he was M F Hussain. M F Hussain¶s son Owais Husain. How can he work in such a claustrophobic atmosphere? Hussain is justified for his action because it is important at this stage of his life to have a sense of belongingness. Since then his images use to adorn my sight through the pages on magazines and newspapers and I could feel he was there somewhere a part and parcel of the Indian social life. There are others who feel that a national campaign should be launched to request the distinguished artist to return home. plural and democratic values will allow such forces to have a free run? How long we may be delegating the responsibility to the government to keep such elements under check? To me. µMy father is older than modern independent India. 69 . searching the memory files to locate this character sitting on the back seat. The painter was harassed by the fanatical mobs. the fact remains that M F Hussain undoubtedly is one of the top most celebrities in the field of painting that India has produced in modern times. He didn¶t plan any of this. In the simple words. when a Hindi monthly published an inflammatory article on his paintings done in 1970s. I feel I may not be able to follow him as before. This led to a slew of criminal cases filed against him. His life has been charted by destiny. The forces of bigotry and intimidation have won against those who hold liberal views. Well that was the last time I saw the man who is called the µPicasso of India¶. Hussain¶s time of troubles started since 1996. As a child he struggled to make ends meet.The car was so slow. During British India he painted slogans against the colonial rulers. and about 900 cases filed against him. My mind was racing. why should a creative person be living in captivity watched by hosts of security guards. have to be equally organized if we want to make India an oasis of peace and harmony. why not M F Hussain? It¶s the duty of the government to provide security to its national icon. even after being acknowledged so.¶ Some have argued that many undeserving individuals in the country have been given red level security. forced to live in exile. his car sped past me. The magnitude of the protest against M F Hussain suggests the organized and entrenched strength of the Hindutva forces is in this country. that I was almost walking with it. a film maker-writer-painter-rationalizes the predicament of his father. alleging that the artist has hurt the Hindus¶ sentiments. The irony is. it¶s time those opposing such regressive forces. Now when I realize he has been hounded out and forced to take residence in a city of another country. To this there runs a counter argument. In independent India. while their counterparts from across the border are busy making the headlines for the newspapers. He didn¶t plan his exile in Dubai and now his citizenship in Qatar. the Indian Taliban have got the trophy. he is haunted out of the country. he painted pictures that sold for astronomical sums of money. and eventually have to take a foreign nationality. the exhibitions of his work were vandalized.

However. plural and democratic values that failed to keep its national icon in its motherland. these arguments do not placate those who maintain their distinct line of thought and like to compete with the Talibans from across the border in such matters. 70 . secular. It¶s a real shame for those who uphold liberal. It¶s a major victory for them as they have forced M F Hussain to accept a foreign nationality.

Using the Meerathi regionalism like his uncle BAL Thackeray. Nor did his party succeed much as a regional party in the elections in Maharashtra. Raj Thackeray would not have found a better victim than the people of northern India to air the feelings of regionalism and provincialism. he has been coercing the people of northern India and of other cities. in Nasik and in Poona and tell them to leave Maharashtra. has been in the forefront in spreading hatred against Muslims in the southern state of Maharashtra in India. provincialism. His candidates contested the municipal elections in Mumbai but Raj Thackeray was not as successful as his uncle. People from every nook and corner of India come to earn a livelihood in this city of over 10 million and succeed here after forgetting about their religion. after Raj 71 . Narinder Modi did the same in 2002 and won elections in Gujrat and now he has formed his own government in the province using his anti-Muslim tactics. he thought of using the same recipe which his uncle BAL Thackeray and Narinder Modi had been using. No one is there in Indian politics these days except Raj Thackeray. They beat up the people of other places in Mumbai. About half of its citizens are from northern India who have made this city so full of fun and pleasure. That is why the Samaj Wadi Party¶s leader in Mumbai. But the politicians these days do not accept defeat easily. In fact the Samaj Wadi Party won elections due to the people of northern areas. and then easily wins the elections using the same emotional feelings of hatred and regionalism. Thus Abu Asim and some other people of the Samaj Wadi Party rose against it. under the banner of Shiv Sena. city and home. It is the same Raj Thackeray who rebelled against his uncle BAL Thackeray a year or so before and broke away from Shiv Sena and founded his own party. When Raj Thackeray was about to fail. It is a mixture of hatred. It is strange that sometimes Malayam Singh¶s Samaj Wadi Party wins some seats in Mumbai municipality but his party has not been as successful as Raj Thackeray¶s party. That is why his party workers have started beating up the people of northern India in Maharashtra. rising from oblivion. The Maharashtra province is in fact the centre of India¶s industrial development and its city of Mumbai is the heart of India¶s progress. Mumbai is not only a modern developed city with so many factories in it. fear and intimidation. And the same family has been following for the last 20 years this quick recipe of torture and hatred for success. regionalism. but is also known the world over as Bollywood because of being the centre of the film industry. and it was believed that the sun of his politics would set soon. Abu Asim. Some politician delivers a speech against those targeted people and thus becomes a hero in his own area. So this Raj Thackeray. This politics of regionalism and hatred is quite common in India these days. But these days it is his nephew Raj Thackeray who is so prominent in Indian politics.The Thakurs of India ± the messengers of hate Who doesn¶t know BAL Thackeray? He. The people of a particular region or caste are targeted and tortured. is in the news again. Raj Thackeray¶s slogans are: ³Maharashtra is for Meerathis´ and ³O people of northern India get out of Maharashtra´.

But it is clear. The political vacuum created by this shrinkage of a national party like Congress is being filled with the politics of regionalism and personalities. Only the election results there will tell whether Raj Thackeray succeeds like Modi or not. It means that like the last days of the Mughals. and they aim at winning the provincial elections in Maharashtra at the end of this year. the influence of the centre on national politics would go on decreasing and that of regional leaders would go on increasing. is a symbol of the increasing provincial feelings in Indian politics. like the Gujrati leader Narinder Modi. No one can tell who will succeed in this tug of war between Raj Thackeray and Abu Asim in Maharashtra. and if the people like Raj Thackeray and Modi continued winning. realized that his Samaj Wadi Party can revive again if he starts talking of the provincial prejudices of northern Indians. Let us see which way the wind blows in the next parliamentary elections. 72 .Thackeray¶s attacks on northern Indians. But it is clear that the leaders like Raj Thackeray and Abu Asim have been using successfully this mixture of provincialism and animosity. the influence of Delhi in India is decreasing and the influence of provinces and provincial leaders is increasing. Both these national parties have now been confined to a few provinces only. Raj Thackeray. the future of India¶s national parties like Congress and Bhartia Junta Party is becoming misty and dark.

They have been ranked as constable within the Border Security Force (BSF). The women not only hit the Major but also lodged a complaint to the 78 . the Inspector General of BSF met with the head constable posted on front line. He praised character of front line soldiers especially the women despite the fact that their character had been thoroughly scrutinized before recruitment under RAW. In recent years we hear strange stories. his wife constable Shrimati Birmala Kaur and their three kids on the occasion of holy festival. it does not matter if some hundred women are posted on border areas in a Hindu society which is devoid of any moral values. who does not believe in nobility of people or institutions. because this kind is first casualty and victim of enemies. Indian army is trained under ideological teachings of Hindu scholar and thinker Chankiya. They have been recruited directly under the Indian secret service RAW. The said battalion has been a result of a study mission of Major General Kumar who officially visited Russia to study causes of increasing tendencies of suicide and sexual frustration within Indian army ranks. Now it appears why RAW makes it a point to use pretty women. RAW was bestowed upon the responsibility to form an espionage and sex-ridden battalion for the border areas after due military training. General Kumar recommended posting of women on border areas. This comprises of 300 women soldiers. One of its Major Generals was found harassing a junior women officer and won massive disrepute. the Indian women rights organizations should agitate over such kind of women empowerment. This family hurled many colors upon the Inspector General. Apparently it is being argued that these women will monitor border movements. He views that people should not be gentle or noble. However. RAW is notorious for using its strong network of beautiful women for security purpose. to be posted on Pakistani borders. The present solution to do away with psychological issues is like fighting one evil with another evil. They will also perform espionage tasks. Sexual frustration is not a new thing for the Indian army. In one case.

An army Major who was staying in a hotel of Andaman Islands could not resist women of a touring family and was found peeping from his bath room to the lady¶s bathroom. Hence. Perhaps it is due to the boredom within spies that have to be tackled with aesthetic incentives to make spying operations more fun! First batch of 178 pretty women troops have already been posted on Indo-Pak borders. Psychologists believe that majority of soldiers in occupied Kashmir are married.

They at least should give respect to women to even a lesser extent of being in homes. but despite that women have a respectful place that every civilized society reserves for them. Women have to work hard to save their skin. They don¶t have the courage to confront them. Hindus could not get respect of women even after many hundred years of Muslim dominance. then the chances of life are further decreased. particularly. How can they save lives of other Indian soldiers? If some Mujahid of an orthodox group sees men and women soldiers working together.hotel authorities. 79 . Whatever strategy the Indian army may adopt to appease its soldiers posted on Indo-Pak borders and.

Chapter 6 PAK-INDIA COLD WAR ANTI-PAKISTAN CAMPAIGN BASED ON HATRED & DESTABIZATION OF PAKISTAN 84 .

Unfortunately their subjective posturing and ambiguous pledges are very elusive reflecting Hindu tricks to cheat others and to take advantage of the situational setting. but India has not forgotten nor forgiven the incident that lead to the creation of Pakistan. India believes in bulldozing its way through irrespective of the legitimacy of its stance. refined political institutions and expansive social justice. This is one side of the picture as they do not mean what they say. possess the force of arms to fight them. The aim is to show India as a fascinating land with established democracy. The speech made by General V. He argued that Gandhi adopted a non-violent strategy against the British because at that time India did not. Surely Indian claims to ³forget and forgive´ are false. More than 63 years have passed since Pakistan was created. In 1947. showing his dislike for the double standards and the wastage of public money. India disliked the idea of Pakistan (the TwoNation Theory) and has not accepted Pakistan as a reality. Thus India resorts to double talks and maintains double standards. The purpose of such a media campaign is to attract foreign investors and win over the opinion makers of the world. This is inbuilt in the Indian Hindu character and can well be categorized as the collective character of the Indian nation. Indian diplomats and business community while interacting with the foreign counterparts remain submissive and docile showing their well-camouflaged and mock posture pretending to be cosmopolitan and open minded. On the other hand. General V. a philosophy of prejudice and an unending animosity towards Pakistan. he openly professed a much aggressive role of India in the regional and international arena. thereby making it possible to explore wider acceptance for Indian pledges without uncovering 86 . he cherished the leadership of Shri Bhimsen Sachar. Sen to uplift troops to Kashmir to fight the Pakistani µintruders¶.P. on ³India¶s Strategic Culture and Security Challenges´ at ORF Institute for India was nothing but on exercise in hypocrisy. While on the other hand. when dealing with similar neighbours. They keep their real intention well disguised under the cover of a latent scheme (naturally developed in Indian milieu) to determine the real worth and potential of the counterpart.P. When the opposing side is more influential and powerful.The real face of hypocrisy Indian media and political leadership make tall claims and forceful assertions to project India as a secular state where proverbial maxim ³forget and forgive´ remains the fundamental teaching and a predominant practice. On one hand. and could not. maintaining that violence was better than cowardice. the former Indian army chief. India has recently undertaken an exhaustive and expensive media campaign to project the country as ³Incredible India´. India reflects a mindset. Indians resort to non-violent and passive techniques to record their feelings and protests. Hence. Gandhi¶s practice in South Africa and later in India during the British rule is a point in case. Malik. P Malik allowed Brigadier L. who imbibed secular ethics from Swami Dayanand¶s teachings.

Will India realize its unjust and irresponsible stance is the multimillion question? India must show magnanimity matching its size. Indian democracy is actually a fraud in which ³might is right´ is the prevalent law. therefore. Projection through media is not a bad thing. acrimonious political malice.the real face of Indian hypocrisy. deep prejudice and discriminations based on creed and status. and related genocide. Recently. illegitimate occupation of disputed land. The secretarylevel talks took place. As an irresponsible state. with a crude blend of religious hatred. Caste system. India once again managed to sabotage the secretary-level talks and failed to create the environment and resume a composite dialogue. besides having general feelings of rancour and resentment for non-Hindus. Hence. human rights violations and above all natural and traditional animosity for foreigners and non-Indians. The world must objectively see the real functioning of Indian democracy (Hindu chauvinism) and discrimination against Dalits. India not only targets its own nationals. while minorities and non-Hindu communities are denied their very fundamental rights. Maleechh and other minorities. Kashmir and Sikkim. institutional corruption. while keeping the core issues of Kashmir and water terrorism out of focus. are some of the aspects which represent the real worth of Indian democracy. including Muslims and Christians. 87 . but the outcome was discouraging. it would not be out of sync to conclude that India is more irresponsible than being projected as incredible. India decided to resume peace talks with Pakistan and. as India showed its double face by maintaining its intransigence to press its irrational demands on terrorism. but also tends to coerce its neighbours. especially. invited Pakistan to participate in secretary-level talks in India. but sending cheating messages to the world for vested interests is not only immoral and wicked but illegal and devious. Hindu extremism.

These agents have created strong roots in Bhutan because India wants complete control on it. The only purpose is to exploit their markets to boost the Indian economy. India has been creating trouble and destabilizing Nepal to gain complete control of that country the way it did in Sikkim. The agents of RAW openly help the Nepalese rebels and are instigating them to rebel against Nepal. In the past. India wants to do this by making dams on the rivers. Similarly in Bhutan. Its relationship with Pakistan and Bangladesh are well-known to everyone. Even knowing it that the economy of Sri Lanka depends on fishing. After a long period of time. In this way. India tried to swallow up Bangladesh by creating a so called Mukti Bahni in 1970. The greatest proof of this is that all neighbours of India have complaints against it in one way or the other. Unfortunately.Conspiracies against neighbours A Sri Lankan Newspaper ³The Island´ has revealed that almost six thousand Indian boats illegally enter the Sri Lankan ocean. India has become a sign of danger for its neighbours due to its bad intensions and expansionist aims. The Indian agents are helping the Tamil rebels by providing ammunition to them. it is continuously violating the UN resolutions on Kashmir. New Delhi could not get any appreciation in Bangladesh. India has started its activities against the Shah of Bhutan. Tajikistan. and the fishermen take away tons of fish. India has embarked on a new ³adventure´ of destabilizing Bangladesh by controlling its water courses. the agents of RAW (Research and Analysis Wing: an elite Indian Intelligence Agency) were working against the Sri Lankan solidarity. Uzbekistan. due to reforms in Chinese diplomatic policies and a determination to befriend with all its neighbours. It is strange that India has not only the desire to be a member of the UN Security Council but also declares it as its right. Otherwise Indian relations with China have been the same as with Pakistan and Bangladesh. India¶s dangerous intensions are not hidden from anyone. India will not be able to cause any harm to them by attacking them unexpectedly. However. India not only irritates Sri Lanka by violating its sea boundaries but also provides Tamil rebels with arms through these boats. The agents of RAW want to create instability there too. Iran. there is peace on Sino-Indian borders. The purpose of these condemnable activities is to bring Sri Lanka completely under Indian control. India blames Sri Lanka for stealing fish. Today there is hardly any human-right organization which has not published commentaries on the Indian atrocities in 88 . India wants to control its neighbours to weaken South Asian fraternity by dominating the regional politics. India is perhaps a unique country in the world that has never had good relations with its neighbouring countries. That is why the SAARC countries as well as Afghanistan. and Kirghizstan should be aware of the evil intensions. India wants to claim each and every drop of water that flows from Himalayan Mountains towards Bangladesh. On the other hand. In Sri Lanka. The evil intensions of India against its neighbouring countries are not hidden.

but is only in favour of its membership. Regarding this issue. And the atrocities on Kashmiris and ineffectiveness of UN resolutions have been lamented.Occupied Kashmir. 89 . the Russian President Putin. If India becomes a member of the Security Council with a veto power. That is why. there have been debates in the UN and other notable forums. during his visit to India has clarified that he is not in favour of giving India the right of ³veto´. it will create serious apprehensions and dangers for international peace.

para-military force for its protection and a huge number of Black Cat Commandos have already been sent to Afghanistan. The ground reality is this that Kabul. Herat. The country which had a long tradition of brotherly relations with 90 . In the past Indian sympathies were with the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan. which did not like to hear the very name of Taliban and Pakistan. India has established its consulates in the southern provinces of Herat. India knows that the resources of Central Asia can only be accessed by road networks. Now India is trying its best to increase its influence in Afghanistan. If the leadership of these countries does not adopt a responsible attitude the situation of South Asia will be dangerous and peace will not prevail in the region. Indian army officers are training young people in Afghanistan. An Indian company named Border Road Organization which is busy in the construction and maintenance of roads in Afghanistan. they must remember that actions speak louder than words. Jalalabad and Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan. prohibited literature and many anti-religious and anti-Pakistan materials are brought and spread in the country. We want to tell the Afghan leadership to be aware of the conspiracies and negative propaganda of India. the better it is. Qandhar. which are always engaged in anti-Pakistan activities. but the other countries must also play their role.Destabilizing Pakistan If we analyze the incidents of terrorism in Balochistan and the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces. India is increasing its forces in Afghanistan quite imperceptibly. They are busy in destabilizing and committing terrorist activities in the neighbouring country. It is not only the responsibility of Pakistan to maintain peace in the region. It is the need of the hour that they should restrain Indian activities there as mere usage of decorative words is not enough. As a result. we find many proofs of Indian involvement and interference in local affairs and its support to militants. Along with Indian agents many drug smugglers also enter in these areas and through these smugglers arms. The sooner India and Afghanistan realize it. and the Afghan defence and foreign ministries and intelligence agencies are replete with elements who are Pakistan¶s enemies. to destabilize the country and spreading hatred against Pakistan by using local tribes and warlords in Afghanistan. who will never be well-wishers of Pakistan rather they will act as mercenaries. the law and order situation is getting from bad to worse. Afghanistan is providing the best opportunities for Indian construction companies. So far as the Afghanis are concerned. Their enmity against Pakistan was quite apparent because they thought that the Taliban were the creation of Pakistan and a symbol of the hegemony of Pakhtoons. whereas Pakistani consulates were looted and burnt and attacked several times. and Jalalabad have become centres of the agents of RAW. The government and elements which took control of Afghanistan after the ouster of Taliban were friends and well-wishers of India. illegal currency. The Indian consulates and training centres of RAW were established in Afghanistan. Apart from it.

The Muslims of Afghanistan have deep love for Islam and practice religion in their day to day life. The Pakistanis. have been neglected completely and their hospitality and sacrifices have altogether been forgotten. and India has become the patron in-charge of the Afghans. It wants to desecrate the religious and moral values of Afghanis so that they can be easily turned against Pakistan and against their own true Islamic virtues. Pakistan government has also verified that Indian RAW is involved in the incidents of Balochistan. Schools and hospitals are being set up in different areas of Afghanistan to waylay the Muslims of Afghanistan with the help of the Hindu staff. India has initiated a pernicious campaign to waylay the staunch religious Afghans. In this way India creates misunderstandings between Pakistan and Afghanistan to distort their bilateral relations and consolidate its presence in the region. the agents of RAW collaborate with the local traitors and indulge in bomb blasts. It provides financial aids to the poor Afghanis as an incentive to convert them to Hindu values and beliefs. 91 . The Congress government in India has started a project of waylaying the innocent Afghan Muslims and to drive them away from religious and moral values. In the border areas of Balochistan and NWFP. The new Indian government is spending huge amount of funds & lots of money for this purpose.Afghanistan and was quite indispensable with respect to religion and region became a stranger for the Afghans. Karachi. who played the role of a host for their Afghan brothers and sacrificed for them. The Indian government is giving incentives to the Afghan people to give up Islamic values and convert to Hinduism or non-Islamic thoughts. and Waziristan.

13 people were killed in a suicide car bomb at an intelligence building in Model Town. Besides various terror incidents in Lahore. Lahore. 2010 two suicide blasts targeting the army. Pakistan¶s various regions have faced suicide attacks by the militants who entered the country from Afghanistan where tentacles of terrorism exist. ripped through RA Bazaar in Lahore. huge quantity of explosives has also been used. Peshawar and Rawalpindi which involved gun battles between the terrorists and the security forces. and sometimes. but creating panic in the city. Sometimes. causing no fatalities. Apart from the previous and latest incidents in Peshawar. and a perennial wave of terrorism in 2009/2010 ±proves that the RAW has modified its tactics of subversion in Pakistan. 16 people. On October 15. either through suicide explosion or through hand grenades. in most of the terror-tragedies. 2009. yet there are clear indications that the Indian intelligence agency RAW is behind the latest terror-strikes in Lahore. A few days ago. similar tactics of suicide attacks and exchange 92 . Apart from direct suicide events. The sponsoring of bomb blasts and suicide attacks in the past. Just like the past events. In one of the latest incidents. purpose is to directly kill the security personnel of our country. now militants armed with hand-grenades and machine-guns also come to help the explosive-laden vehicles so as to penetrate the security at the target points. Notably. in the last five years. 2010 some 14 people. the heart of Pakistan. By setting aside the atrocities of the Taliban insurgents. on March 13. they propagate that Pakistan¶s armed forces are killing its own people. Islamabad and Lahore. including three security personnel were killed when a suicide bomber targeted a security forces¶ check post in Mingora. Manawan Police Training Centre in Lahore. the previous pattern of subversive acts through suicide attacks has also been intensified.RAW¶s covert war against Pakistan On March 12. India has set up secret training centres in Afghanistan where it¶s military personnel in collaboration with RAW have been imparting training to the youngsters. exchange of fire takes place between the saboteurs and the security guards. killing 57 people including eight soldiers and injuring a over a 100 people. All the terror incidents indicate that RAW has been waging a secret war against Pakistan through its well-trained insurgents who could conduct attacks in major cities despite Pakistan¶s successful military operations against the militants and the death of the renowned militant commanders. A number of terror events in Pakistan endorse that RAW¶s agents have been acting upon guerrilla techniques. In this respect. seven low-intensity bombs ± six in Iqbal Town and one in Samanabd exploded. including 12 personnel of the security forces had been martyred in foiling three separate terrorist assaults by killing nine terrorists at the FIA Building. although Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the Lahore attacks. In this regard. Hours after.

while thwarting a number of suicide missions through pre-arrests. But RAW.´ Similar types of terror tactics were applied by the culprits in relation to the Pearl Continental Hotel. the militants who attacked the GHQ on October 10. during the past 10 months. more than 10 terrorists raided the Manawan Police Training Centre. Pakistan¶s security forces regained control of the police academy. Another guerrilla technique of the RAW-trained terrorists is that they camouflage themselves by wearing the uniform of Pakistani security forces so as to deceive the security guards and to get inside the targeted point for conducting their assigned task. Pakistani officials confirmed that ³grenades and rocket launchers had been recovered´ which were of foreign origin. In fact. in the in-camera sitting of the Senate. Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaulah had stated on the same day that the Indian involvement in ³suicide attacks in Lahore cannot be ruled out. Israel and India want to weaken it by creating lawlessness for achieving their secret strategic interests. separatism in Balochistan and subversive acts in Karachi and Lahore. capturing five terrorists alive. 2009. Afterwards. official inquiry disclosed that RAW was behind that attack. evaded tight security and killed five people. Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik displayed documentary evidence of the Indian use of Afghanistan to create 93 . Peshawar where more than 20 persons had been killed. Besides on March 30 last year. on April 23. terrorists targeted the bus of the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore and killed eight people after a continuous gunfire. UN¶s World Food Program in Islamabad was attacked by a suicide bomber who was wearing an official uniform. Pakistan¶s civil and military high officials have openly revealed that Indian secret agency. RAW. In this respect. he would have exposed them. adding that if he were not a governor. 2009. this fact is known to everyone that Pakistan is the only nuclear country in the Islamic world. but could not be hit due to heavy firing by the security guards on the terrorists who came along with the vehicle firing at the security guards. with technological support of Israel has succeeded in training the new fugitives who are regularly being sent to Pakistan with orders of destabilizing our country. In this connection. last year. on March 3. Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa governor Awais Ghani disclosed that some world powers were trying to divide Pakistan. Hence. Now. Notably. Again. Pakistan¶s security forces have broken the backbone of the suicide bombers by arresting most of their commanders and insurgents. After eight hours of gun-battle. 2010 more than 30 people were killed in Lahore when an explosive-laden Suzuki van exploded near the Rescue 15 building of the police which was completely destroyed. 2009. Israeli Mossad and other foreign agencies are involved in supporting insurgency in the Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa. Lahore leaving at least 12 dead. On May 27. In this context. On June 28.

Meanwhile. and it will soon spread to Pakistan. While playing a double game like his paymasters. He was having a number of secrets regarding foreign intelligence agencies. who was killed in a US drone attack on August 5. some of our high officials repeatedly pointed out that the late Baitullah Mehsud. the military operation has succeeded in South Waziristan. his successor. It is of particular attention that on October 7. chief of the TTB. last year had been backed by the foreign powers.´ Nonetheless. At present. During the ongoing military operations. Nevertheless. like Baitullah. apart from other volatile regions. Hakimullah Mehsud was also a collective agent of RAW and CIA. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmud Qureshi and the ISPR spokesman Major-General Athar Abbas have repeatedly stated that they have concrete evidence of Indian support to terrorism in Pakistan through Afghanistan. but India with the tactical help of the US has also intensified its strategy to sabotage the same through clandestine tactics applied by its Waziristan-based agents. BBC telecasted a documentary regarding the eighth anniversary of the US-led NATO invasion of Afghanistan. Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani. supported by the subversive acts of guerilla warfare. RAW has launched a secret war inside Pakistan by inciting the militants through various techniques of propaganda. 94 . It stated. 2009. ³Now this war is being fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.unrest in Pakistan. his real aim is to incite the innocent Pakhtoons in order to further weaken Pakistan.

people would have stopped respecting the sardars. Swat. America increased the number of its priorities in Central Asia and the way to it was through ³Pasni Marha´ Gwadar. If the sardari system were unjust. There were different groups in Balochistan in the beginning with their own interests. One of them thought of annexing Balochistan with Afghanistan. India is playing its role on America¶s instigation and would fight until America¶s presence in Afghanistan. and many of those who have been killed or arrested are Indians. Buner. because India has openly been playing its anti-Pakistan role on the behest of the present Afghan government. and its access to hot waters through Makran coast. He advised the same to the Khan of Qalat. Israeli and American arms are being used in NWFP. India has been stressing upon other countries to pressurize Pakistan for a dialogue while itself it is the wolf in sheep¶s clothing. But. Malakand. It failed the vicious designs of our enemies. But Quaid-iAzam was well aware of the Indians¶ intention and evil plan. At that time. Our government should think before taking any step. Afghans and Kurds who were involved in terrorist activities in Pakistan. In the beginning India wanted to anchor its warships at the coast of Makran to capture this strategic location so that it could satisfy its expansionist designs of reaching the Gulf States and Muscat. whereas the other group was lobbying for Congress and wanted to join India. Pasni and Marha (cities in Balochistan province) would be a junction on the road to Central and West Asia and Europe and many new cities would emerge from this land. We should review our Kashmir agenda to teach India a lesson. Israel and America ± all three of them are trying to get access and control on Pakistan¶s nuclear assets. He was informed about it. he at once declared to join Pakistan. At that crucial moment. the USSR or Soviet Union contacted the Khan of Qalat (or ruler of Kalat State now part of province of Balochistan) Ameer Muhammad Khan through their agents and told him that they wanted to extend Qalat to Muscat. The Sultan of Muscat informed Pakistan. When Pakistan was created. When the Wali of Makran (Ruler of Makran State now part of Balochistan province) Meer Mahmood Khan Lehki came to know about it. Sardar Abdul Rab Nishtar was in Balochistan in those days. at the end of the cold war between Soviet Union (USSR) and America. Quaid¶s wisdom came in to play and Balochistan was annexed to Pakistan. South and North Waziristan Agencies and Balochistan. The only way to maintain peace in Balochistan is that we should not try to change the µsardari or local Tribal Jirga system there. and India was supposed to side with it. India. General Pervez Musharraf had imposed restrictions on Kashmiri mujahideen. The Soviet Union was to help it in this regard. because people there are getting easy justice in this system and they are not satisfied with the formal judicial system.Chaos in Balochistan It is now evident that India is Pakistan¶s eternal enemy and it is a fact that right from the creation of Pakistan the Indian leaders had started claiming that within six years Pakistan would be quite helpless and it would rejoin India or will be a failed state. but the tribal sardars consider 95 . At this moment. Indian. He also predicted that a time would come when Gwadar. the Soviet Union also wanted to gain access to Makran to capture the coast of Gwadar.

otherwise. in compliance with anti-Pakistan elements in the Northern Alliance. and that they very tactfully and boldly started destroying Gas installations in Sui area of Balochistan and railway tracks to divert Pakistan forces¶ attention from the Hindu Balochis. The Indian secret agency RAW (Research and Analysis Wing)¶s former chief B Raman has described the present terrorism in Balochistan as a liberation movement. These disruptive activities of some angry Baloch leaders and their supporters in Balochistan started a few years ago when the federal government started construction of the Gwadar port and a network of roads there. started the development work without consulting the Baloch sardars.000 every month and training in terrorist acts against law enforcement agencies of Pakistan. with the help of Israel. India has always been airing the flame of conspiracy in Balochistan. this was the first time since 1947 when the government. is doing everything. In fact. they should review India¶s role in Israel and Occupied Kashmir. All the transport of Indian goods and citizens is through Jalalabad. This blatant lie was spread that the cause of Pakistan forces¶ present operation in Balochistan were the Hindu Balochs whom the provincial government of Balochistan wanted to send in exile. This website is in contact with the waylaid Baloch leaders and with a view to creating mini nationalist states in Pakistan. Afghanistan and Iran have been pointed out and marked as separate country. the extremist Hindu organizations and Indian institutions have been intensifying terrorism in this part of Pakistan. while announcing the establishment of a government-in-exile of Balochistan.the people as their slaves. thus. and. instead of doing a lip service. he stressed upon the Indian government to support the terrorists. The formation of a government-inexile with the help of India and Israel is an Indian conspiracy which only the Baloch people and Pakistan government can foil. India¶s secret agency. If some Baloch leaders consider India and Israel as their friends. India has established forty terrorist training camps in Balochistan where every terrorist is being given Rs 10. The Indian consulate in Kandahar province is the headquarters of RAW¶s terrorist planning in Afghanistan. and that the Baloch nationalists had shielded them against air strikes. There is an organization of Balochistan on an international level. But the simple and proud Balochi people do not know that. The only aim of opening the Indian consulate in Kandahar is to ensure India¶s intervention for terrorism in Balochistan. No one is ignorant about the game that India and its other foreign allies are playing in Balochistan. a so-called government of greater Balochistan has been established. believing that the situation in Balochistan is an internal problem of India. there is no justification of a consulate in such a far flung area of Afghanistan. The former RAW chief B Raman has described it as India¶s historical and moral duty to help those separatist forces in Balochistan who have been fighting against the Pakistani government. And. a map has also been drawn in which Baloch settlements in Pakistan. It was like a challenge to 96 . The only aim of the Hindu Unity Organization¶s so-called Baloch Liberation Movement (BLM) on the internet is to use the extremist Baloch youth for Indian interests and to create new problems for Pakistan by strengthening the anti-Punjabi feelings of the Baloch youth. with a view to making the so-called µliberation movement¶ successful.

Their religion. Our Prime Minister met the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during the ³Non-Align Movement (NAAM) Conference held in Sharm-el Shaikh. while commenting on the meeting of the Indian and Pakistani prime ministers. The most important of all these was the use of the land of Afghanistan by India for intervention in Balochistan. Prime Minister Gilani provided Manmohan Singh copies of important proofs and evidences of Indian involvement in Balochistan. nor should the others interfere in your affairs. insists that we would not allow Pakistani soil to be used for terrorism and for against any neighbouring country. The best principle is that neither should you interfere in the affairs of the others. About the Indian intervention in Balochistan. the Indian Prime Minister had testified and confirmed the Pakistani allegations. along with the media. That is why BBC. Sardar Manmohan Singh said that he would consider it if Pakistan provides them concrete proofs. At this. Both India and Israel are involved in the conspiracy of greater Balochistan. But their children deserve to be educated through technology as much as the children of the other provinces do. Therefore. many of the differences and rifts among them would automatically die out. But the Baloch Sardars should understand that the world has changed. The Prime Minister of Pakistan. national and international integration. Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani. The same thing we expect from our neighbours ± they should not allow their soil to be used against Pakistan or any other country.the Sardari system. They have got their own languages and their own ways of life. the Indian Prime Minister remained silent and surprised for some time. only a strong Pakistan can guarantee the security of a federation of India. Then how can the people of Balochistan stay away from the rest of the world? They remained illiterate and uneducated by choice and by omission. said that a 97 . They want to separate from India as the Muslims did because they have their own separate and distinct identities. It was due to the importance of these proofs and evidences that they were included in the Pak-India joint declaration. the Kashmir issue and Mumbai attacks. If our neighbours and all the other countries on the planet make it their motto of not to interfere in the affairs of others nor allowing their lands to be used for direct or indirect disruption and terrorism in other countries. They have every right on medical facilities and means of transport and communications. How can a region remain in darkness when modern era¶s lights are all around? The world is fast becoming a global village. their culture and their civilizational background are not the same as those of the Indian Brahmans. The citizens of more than half a dozen Indian states do not consider themselves as Hindus. in light of the principles of mutual peaceful existence and the regional. which was later talked about so vehemently in India. The anti-government parties. But India should think that Pakistan has got the shield of the two-nation theory whereas India has got no such shield. On seeing them. Egypt in July 2009´ and exchanged views and agreed on the need of restoration of comprehensive dialogues on all issues including cooperative actions to end terrorism. The Sardari system and feudal system cannot survive for too long. started satirizing and chastening Manmohan Singh and said that by mentioning the Indian intervention in Balochistan in the joint declaration.

The Baloch circles around him expressed their grief on this incident. All proofs and evidences would be provided to the United Nations. Those who are aware of the demands of diplomacy know that such conversations are always recorded. It must be remembered that the Governor of Kandahar. funds and latest Indian. But the Indian Foreign Minister said that the joint declaration of the prime ministers of India and Pakistan had no legal or documentary status. Prime Minister Gilani was criticized in Pakistan for not mentioning the Kashmir issue in the joint declaration. Apart from that. Rahman Malik added that the Afghan government had assured him of full cooperation about handing over Brahamdagh Bugti to Pakistan and about eliminating the training camps there.weathered politician like Manmohan Singh was defeated by a comparatively younger prime minister of a country which was confronting problems of diverse nature and that Mr Gilani had succeeded in entrapping his Indian counterpart. Balach Marri¶s death in a NATO attack is regrettable. He had formed the so-called Balochistan Liberation Army (known as BLA). Prime Minister Gilani also provided to him many useful proofs about the Afghan land being used against Pakistan. He would investigate Nawabzada Brahamdagh Bugti¶s activities and if he is found guilty. Rahman Malik in these meetings insisted that Nawabzada Brahamdagh Bugti had been leading the dissidence from Afghanistan and demanding the liberation of Balochistan in other countries. He demanded that Nawabzada Brahamdagh Bugti should be handed over to Pakistan. had established about 14 consulates in Afghanistan near the Pakistan border. The Pakistani foreign office explained that though this issue was not included in the joint declaration. Asadullah Khan. Mr Singh gave more and gained less. The Foreign Office spokesman announced that Pakistan had decided to raise the issue of Indian intervention at the United Nations. In these consulates. BBC said it in its analysis that while trading with Pakistan. The proofs that the Indian Prime Minister was provided with at Sharm-el-Shaikh 2009 showed that India. especially to the people of Balochistan. The Federal Interior Minister Mr. Balach Marri had gone to Afghanistan from Balochistan some time back. NATO forces usually 98 . where. During his meeting with the Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Nawab Khair Bukhsh Marri¶s son Balach Marri died in an army¶s attack by NATO forces in Afghanistan. Hamid Karzai assured that full cooperation would be done with Pakistan. action would be taken against him. the Federal Home Minister Rahman Malik also met Afghanistan¶s President Hamid Karzai and some other concerned Afghan officials and provided them with proofs of sabotaging activities in Balochistan. some Israeli and American nationals too have been appointed. it was discussed in detail on the dialogue table. training of terrorism and disruption is being imparted to the people. They were then included in the joint declaration with his consent. apart from the Afghanis. The Indian Prime Minister admitted the Indian intervention in Balochistan and he was quite upset when he saw the proofs and evidences and he remained silent. in compliance with Israel. Moreover. had admitted a few days earlier that some Baloch leaders had been residing there. Israeli and American weapons are also being given to them. But the world must know that joint declarations are always prepared with the mutual agreement of parties concerned.

Many of its branches have been opened in other provinces of Afghanistan too. Apart from its embassy in Kabul. For this India has been patronizing the angry elements in Balochistan. It seems that Hamid Karzai too is following the same motto under Indian patronage. India has been playing a double role in Afghanistan. In spite of Pakistan¶s clear role against terrorism. Mazar Sharif in Afghanistan and Balochistan in Pakistan. India has been encouraging and supporting the Baloch rebels and militants and also supplying money and other resources to militant outfits operating from Balochistan. There are proofs to the effect that RAW¶s agents have been involved in organized activities of disruption in Balochistan. especially in Pakistan and other smaller countries like Nepal. The Indian way of intervening in the internal affairs of the neighbouring countries and weakening them internally is not new. India has increased its diplomatic. Jalalabad. It is regrettable that the Indian secret agency RAW. Indian diplomats there and RAW agents explode bombs at different places and accuse Pakistan and the Taliban. The aim of RAW¶s subversive activities is to destroy the atmosphere of foreign investment. It is also regrettable that some Baloch elements have gotten refuge in Afghanistan and they have been playing in the hands of Indian diplomats for disruption and terrorism in Pakistan. Its consulates in Afghanistan have been providing these people every sort of help and aid. even then the NATO forces killed him. The centre of Indian conspiracies is Afghanistan¶s province of Kandahar. Indian consulates have started subversive activities in Pakistan. India is sending terrorists to Balochistan after training them in Afghanistan to spread chaos. It opened in haste a consulate in Kandahar after the opening of a consulate in Kabul. where unemployed kidnapped young people are being instigated against their own country for money. especially in Balochistan and Sindh and in tribal areas. create law and order situation and insecurity among people. India¶s secret agency RAW has been working on it in a much organized way. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. in compliance with the Afghan government. India has fixed its evil eyes on Balochistan. Balach Muri was in the shelter of the Afghan government. They have been doing it since 1947. it has consulates in the provinces of Kandahar. RAW wants to create chaos and instability in Balochistan and the tribal areas. On the other hand they send some Baloch young men to Balochistan and the frontier areas for terrorism after training them for disruption. 99 . It is also learnt that the Balochistan Liberation Army had received a huge amount from the Indian consulate in Kandahar to purchase arms. the aim of which is to intervene in the affairs of Balochistan. Patriotic circles believe that RAW was involved in his murder. he is hurling baseless accusations against Pakistan. These consulates are big centres of India¶s subversive activities against Pakistan.attack the civilians and many civilians die in such attacks. Pakistan wants to maintain peaceful relationships with its neighbouring countries. The Afghan land is being used against Pakistan. is involved in bomb explosions and suicide attacks in Balochistan and it is patronizing the Baloch rebels and providing them with funds. military and intelligence staff in Afghanistan. It does not want to interfere in the affairs of others.

On Pakistan side. Such unrelenting approach substantiates a Pakistan phobic mindset in India which is rather unfortunate. with hardly any honorable exit options. Both mainstream political parties of India appear to be in a competitive anti-Pakistan race. on as cal required basis.India¶s Pakistan Phobia! An objective analysis of India¶s national security policy leads us to drawing conclusions that her national strategy is predominantly focused on Pakistan. This contradiction of the sorts has induced Pakistan centric psyche in over all national approach towards Pakistan. The phenomenon has historic and cultural groundings so strongly perpetuated through mythological exclusiveness. With this kind of sustained and perpetual anti-Pakistan sentiment. there are heaps of hate culture for strengthening and sustaining Pakistan phobia. Right on the start of an occurrence. anti-Pakistan drums start beating. commencing with politico-military occupation of a major chunk of Kashmir. At academic level. the political leadership has ended up in abdicating the prerogative of prudently steering bilateral relations with Pakistan. Hate icons of the like of Moody and Bal Thakrey symbolize institutionalization of anti-Muslim campaign which ultimately boils down to anti-Pakistan frenzy. the initiative now rests with political opportunists and ideological zealots. All soft talk and CBMs evaporate and Indian forces start marching towards Pakistan. Stagemanaged events like hijacking of Indian aeroplane ³Ganga´. a thick cloud of Indian mischief has induced a cautious approach towards India. As of now Indian policy making tier finds itself thoroughly mired in self created slush. Actually Indian political leadership has fallen prey to believing in their self created anti-Pakistan hype as a substitute of India¶s Pakistan policy. to sever air link between West and East Pakistan prior to 1971 war. there is no dearth of Indian movies and media events highly charged to demonize ISI and other Pakistani institutions. more than often. fake attack on Indian parliament to justify year long deployment along Pakistan border always ring alarm bells in Pakistani circles to rule out strings of conspiracy before embracing Indian overtures. Perception has that during difficult patches when Pakistan gets busy handling the developments on its western borders. supersedes the logic. irrespective of their political hue. Anything that happens or is likely to happen in India has a readily available scapegoat. At cultural level. dismemberment of Pakistan and numerous incidents of en-massing of troops along Pakistani borders in medieval style posturing. India wishes to see it consumed in the process. Rationality is submerged into ocean of irrationality when isolated and at times minor incidents are hyped into a frenzy to equate these with a magnitude justifying declaration of final and conclusive war on Pakistan. Especially the military component of national security conglomerate perpetually oozes out a stream of Pakistan phobia. with a presupposed victory. rather than giving a 100 . Cues picked up by India¶s ultra right organizations are sufficient to tighten the noose around the Indian governments. Pakistan has along lived under the shadow of existential threat originating from India.

Proponents of this school of thought argue that as and when India had a life time chance. India has permanently abdicated the military option against China. Indeed India presented itself mercenary of both super powers of that era to contain China. Moreover. makes it dangerous proposition for the well wisher of good Pak-India relation to ignore. India¶s mammoth wherewithal for mechanized warfare and ambitious naval flotilla are solely Pakistan focused. Incontrovertible evidence of Indian involvement in Baluchistan and many other incidents of terrorism in various parts of Pakistan support the notion that India is yet once again on a Pakistan squeezing spree. China bogie has frequently been raised by India to achieve two objectives. an exceptionally prudent policy of China makes the likelihood of any China-India military clash highly improbable. In cold war era. presumably on Soviet behest forced Pakistan to deploy its military on the eastern border in a full readiness status. hence their application is Pakistan biased. to capitalize on mythical western concerns in the context of China. When we review the Indian military capability and postulate its various employment options in the regions. India diverted Pakistan¶s attention away from western borders at a critical stage of Afghan resistance against Soviets. duly patronized by the state. clear perception which emerges is that a major bulk of its war material is Pakistan specific. first. erstwhile Soviets also had unfounded reservations about the rise of China as a major power. Even those command centres which are east or north poised have a Pakistan specific contingency tasking. Once again now when Pakistan is engaged in facilitation of a workable arrangement in post de-occupation Afghanistan. effort is mainly motivated by the instinct to acquire a launching pad for destabilizing the western stretch of Pakistan. to justify its larger than life arsenal. This manoeuvre. and secondly. she did not and would not want to miss it. or would have such a chance against Pakistan. Systems capabilities as well as supporting infrastructure are indicative of their exclusive suitability against Pakistan. In fact after the humiliating defeat in Indo-Chinese war of 1962. Location of command and control centres and their tasking is Pakistan oriented.strategic space by engaging it constructively. Unfortunately. Most of Indian missiles are of short range. this exercise had the potential of blowing up into full-fledged war. this notion draws support from historic occurrences. 101 . India is comprehensively involved in a wide spectrum of stabbing in the back kind of activities. China even did not react to provocative statement of General Deepak Kapoor while he was day dreaming to fight China and Pakistan simultaneously and gain strategic advantage within 96 hours. hence India squarely exploited it. A national level exercise µBrass Tacks¶ was launched with highly provocative objectives. India is striving for a larger than life role in Afghanistan. Indeed Indian military capability is predominantly Pakistan centric. this coupled with volatile anti-Pakistan public frenzy. India¶s focus has all along been Pakistan.

the law enforcing agencies arrested some of the Indian terrorists with maps of the border areas and some sensitive documents during their search operation in Lahore. An Indian spy. The Mumbai incident was that kind of incident in which India accused Pakistan of designing the plan of the attack and showed Pakistani citizens and the weapons. All India Radio. India has always been propagating against the Pakistan army and ISI. the more complications they are creating for themselves. India has manoeuvred it through its benefactor and friend America that Pakistan should move its army away from the Eastern border and root out the Taliban at the Western border. It¶s like offering Pakistan to India on a silver platter.India¶s propaganda campaign A few days ago. 102 . and Radio Kabul are broad casting aggressively against the Pakistan army and ISI. India just wants to destabilize Pakistan by doing such explosions. Its spies and terrorists can easily sneak in to Pakistan and indulge in terrorist attacks. they are using the Mumbai attacks as an excuse and by accusing Pakistan it wants to attack it. They think that they can harm Pakistan by attacking it. Negative information in the media just aims at tarnishing the image of the Pakistan army and ISI. He further told them that his duty was to smuggle some Pakistani weapons to India so that India could tarnish Pakistan¶s image by propagating that Pakistani weapons were used in a certain incident. The war maniac Indian leaders are quite aware of the fact that Pakistan is not involved in any terrorist attack including the Mumbai attacks. India doesn¶t realize that the more lies its rulers are fabricating to accuse Pakistan. To hide their faults they are using their media to create hatred among the Indian masses to provoke them against Pakistan. all the evidences provided to America to accuse Pakistan are based on assumptions. These countries should not think of any action against Pakistan because we have ability to retaliate. but it should never forget that Pakistan is not a weak country. In other words. Pakistan¶s defence is in strong hands and every malicious act will be paid in the same coin. India wants Pakistan to pull back its army from the Indian borders and use it at the Western borders against the Taliban so that India can find Pakistan¶s Eastern border unguarded. BBC. Nazar Husain said that many of his companions had returned back to India. Can a sane attitude be expected from India after the withdrawal of the forces from the Eastern front? Will India not attack Pakistan at once and start the smuggling of arms. The information given to the international institutions clearly reveals that the incident was a failure of the Indian intelligence. Sada-i-Kashmir (The Voice of Kashmir). Our eternal and clever foe desires to smash our solidarity to fulfil its condemnable aims. On the other hand. It¶s an atomic power now and it¶s impossible to conquer it.

Islam is another name of having well-wishes and fortitude and love for humanity. whether with India or with any other country or nation. Now it is building dams on our rivers to make Pakistan a barren land. The Quran does not allow us to have friendly relations with such a country because friendship is a matter of a meeting of minds and secret sharing. give proposals about current international politics and Pak-India relationships in an un-Islamic background. The first thing to keep in mind is the fact that India is a polytheist. It still has occupied our assets and geographical territory. but still they are considered as the citizens of the sixth grade. What pains us is the fact that these intellectuals. economic and social rights. Their conversations show their µPakistaniat¶. Allah forbids the believers to share secrets with non-believers. This was the aim of the creation of Pakistan. India is our neighbour and Islam teaches us to behave with our neighbours well even if they are non-Muslims. though they claim to be Muslims. friendship with others is not right. India has the second largest Muslim population.Our eternal enemy Discussions and dialogues about Pak-India relationships are being held on mainstream media. in the light of their individual thinking and their love for Pakistan¶s national interests. It did not give Pakistan its share in the British Indian Army Canteen Stores Department. The most important is the fact that the Kashmiris have been deprived of their right of self-determination. it has yet to become a real Islamic country. India¶s army has 103 . 82) At another place. It is also coercing the Muslims and the Kashmiris. The Muslims¶ share in the present government jobs is about one percent. Allah says it clearly in the Quran that ³your friends are the believers of Allah and His prophet. then the Sikhs and after that are the Muslims and other minorities. should be formed in the light of the Quran and the Sunnah and the way of the rightful caliphs. When some Muslim citizens or family or village starts the journey to economic improvement. They are the citizens of the sixth grade in the sense that first there are the four castes of the Hindus. Under these circumstances. civil and military bureaucracy and media are under the control of the anti-Islam and anti-Pakistan Brahmans. God willing.´ (Al-Imran. The views. any sorts of dealings with India. do not make the Quran and Sunnah the basis of their experiments and proposals. That is why in Islam friendship with others is not just under any circumstances. They are deprived of all political. A Hindu nationalist state where all important government departments like politics. beliefs and proposals of the intellectuals are painful. economy. the Hindu-Muslim riots are started under a conspiracy to destroy their economy. Though Pakistan was formed on the basis of a two-nation theory of Islam and Hinduism. It allows Muslims to have dealings with those non-Muslim nations and countries only which do not coerce the Muslims and are not in war with Muslims. yet they. But Pakistan has not been treated well by India. Pakistan would become an Islamic welfare state like the one established by the rightful Caliphs in accordance with the Quran and the Sunnah and become a model for other countries to follow. like trade and culture. India never accepted from its heart the division of the sub-continent and separate identity of Muslims. Islam does not teach its followers to be on enmity with others. are not right. It is very important to keep in mind that international relationships.

not the least of it being what exactly happened to Indian officer Karkare at the start of the Mumbai terrorism. The two Indians accused of helping him were acquitted.L. according to Islam. while Pakistan continues to claim that the Indians have not furnished any hard evidence to support their claims. Nor has India responded to Pakistan·s request to hand over Kasab and co-defendant (now acquitted) Ansari to Pakistan for trial. women. and no doubt the US will add its voice to the pressure. India will use this verdict to further pressure Pakistan on all manner of issues. including murder and waging war against India. The Indians. Clearly the judge had not seen the crime movies of Bollywood where criminal mafias have everything from machine guns to GPS devices! It is interesting how the judge came to this highly political conclusion. this verdict and the sentencing. we have the Kasab trial and verdict in India. Undoubtedly. which included death. the gunmen came prepared for sustained urban combat and that such preparations were not normal for ordinary criminals but ´are made in an organized type of warµ. the Kasab trial and verdict leave many serious question marks. despite Kasab·s claim and the general knowledge about how police torture to squeeze confessions in our part of the world. According to Tahiliyani. He was found guilty on all 86 charges. Those of the Pakistani leaders who think of or recommend having friendly. How long will the Pakistani state continue to allow its citizens to be subjected to such trials with no legal support or defence? 104 . The much awaited verdict on the Kasab trial in India finally came and it was no surprise. would impact Pakistan-India relations. Be that as it may. After the highly politically-motivated trial of Dr Aafia in New York. No doubt at the moment India. is a combatant infidel. commercial or cultural relationships with India are violating the teachings of the Quran. Tahiliyani·s verdict. that Kasab was a member of Lashkar-i-Taiba and that his handlers were in Pakistan.been shedding the innocent blood of millions of Kashmiri men. given how the deck was loaded against him from the start. The judge also stated that Kasab·s confession was not acquired under duress. have been keen to lay the blame at Pakistan·s doorstep and more specifically the LT leadership. Yet. Judge M. children and young people albeit their right of self-determination has been recognized at international level. was reflective of the Indian government·s claims. along with the US.

But sometimes India has succeeded in its loathsome propaganda and got aid from other countries. many Muslims were martyred. Their main aim is to deprive Pakistan of its atomic weapons. India has aggressive designs against Pakistan. India has always tried to maintain an atmosphere of strained relations by hurling accusations. India started its abominable propaganda campaign to hide all these brutalities against its Muslim population. Israel and America that wants to make Pakistan a victim of instability. So India. so Pakistan¶s secret agencies should keep a close watch on everything. India should set the things right at home. No notice of the raping of two Muslims in Shopian was taken. But we must take note of this propaganda campaign. India cannot digest Pakistan¶s progress. because of this humiliation there. according to its planning. There were again anti-Muslim riots in the state of Gujrat. Instead of accusing Pakistan. He claims that there are dozens of camps of terrorists along the Pak-India border. Even in the past. In fact the Indian Prime Minister had no answer to the proofs of the Indian involvement that the Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Gilani provided to him at Sharm-ul-Shaikh. women raped and many Muslims families were made homeless. many houses were burned. In the meeting of prime ministers of India and Pakistan in Sharm-el-Shaikh. The Indian Foreign Minister has also accused that the American military aid to curb terrorism is being used against India. The way the minorities are treated there is enough to start a revolution.Aggressive designs The Indian Defence Minister A K Anthony has accused that the presence of terrorist camps in Pakistan is a threat to India¶s security. General (R) Hameed Gul. are worth remembering. The Muslims all over Occupied Kashmir protested against it. That is why American President Obama and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh are issuing non-stop statements. The statement of the prominent analyst and the former director of ISI. All these statements show that India. that is why India starts its mischief whenever Pakistan takes a step towards economic stability. This series of Indian accusations is not new. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had hurled this ludicrous accusation that the terrorist organizations in Pakistan are planning to attack India. but to no avail. The Pakistan government should make it clear to India that all its adventurisms would be seriously confronted and Pakistan should not delay informing the world about Indian designs. has responded with this shower of accusations. India is also enraged at the Pakistan army¶s operations in Pakistan¶s tribal and border areas. wants to sabotage the attempts to improve relationships. (Egypt 2009) it was agreed that intelligence information would be exchanged if the situation deteriorated. ³It is the troika of India. India has tried to worsen the situation with its irresponsible remarks. 108 . to avail itself of such a situation and get more and more aid from the world. which forced Indian agents to flee from there. This shower of false accusations is tantamount to India¶s admission of defeat. Formerly. But Pakistan¶s foreign minister quite effectively foiled these aspirations of India. India had started such propaganda campaigns the aim of which was to isolate Pakistan on an international level. India has informed America about its apprehensions. therefore. Rather. Instead of talking on a diplomatic level.

It is learnt that India wants a partnership with America in anti-missile defence system. At the same time. It is commonly believed that India would attack Pakistan at an opportune moment. It wants to get arms of every sort through any means. Pakistan should always be on alert. but she also wants a balance of power in the region. The inclusion of atomic submarines into the Indian navy is a part of that plan. Aggression is born whenever there is no balance of power. It has no aggressive designs against any other country. Pakistan has never had expansionist and hegemonic designs in the region. Atomic weapons there are not safe. 109 . India itself is busy in buying weapons. America should adopt a fair policy if it wants peace in the region. Pakistan¶s nuclear and missile projects are for its own defence and deterrence against any untoward threat from India. It is worrisome that India can make fissile material and atomic weapons in a large quantity from the atomic reactors which were rendered unsafe in the civil atomic agreement. Pakistan wants peace and stability in the sub-continent. Pakistan always fulfilled all the demands of the IAEA. making missiles and in other war arrangements. Every nation has the right to complete its defence preparations. They should provide civil nuclear energy and capability to Pakistan too as they signed such a deal with India in 2009. India never did. but it cannot tolerate it if Pakistan buys some arms from America. Indian reactors can produce a large amount of fissile material and atomic weapons which would have a negative impact on the military stability of the region. Pakistan avoids the arms race but India is crazy about getting them. America is providing them with information about the technical and practical points of anti-missile defence system. India¶s craze of amassing so many atomic and traditional arms has become dangerous for its neighbouring countries. Pakistan is following a defence policy to stop foreign aggression. India¶s purchase of conventional arms from all over the world has disrupted the balance of power in the region. and the repercussions and effects of aggression are borne by the victim nations and countries. This submarine has gotten the latest technology and atomic missiles and the ability to hit its targets from the depth of the sea. Pakistan now has no option but to maintain the level of the least deterrence in untraditional arms. According to the spokesman of foreign office. It shows its dishonesty and ill-will and not love for peace. America has imposed restrictions on military aid to Pakistan whereas to India it is giving even forbidden arms. it has started threatening and intimidating Pakistan. That is why India has been trying to improve its atomic and missile power. The people of Pakistan are ready for any sacrifices required for defence purposes.Atomic sub-marine India is preparing herself for war whereas Pakistan is busy in defence arrangements.

The people living below the poverty line have nothing to do with the defence budget. According to International Herald Tribune. India¶s military imports are expected to reach $ 30 billion by 2012. The Indian government is increasing its defence budget and is not bothering about what is happening to the common man. notwithstanding the reality. etc. The poor conditions of its agriculture.06 percent (2004-05).47. in reality India needs a huge defence budget to finance its defence deals with different countries such as Israel.703 crore. Paradoxically. The Indian Government failed to provide employment to its vast population. According to the minister of labour and employment the enrolment of the unemployed in the employment exchange in 2006-07 was 79 lakhs against the average of 58 lakhs in the past ten years. ³there are too many signs of an over confidence (in India) that look more and more like hubris´. The socio-economic indicators of Indian society do not allow India to have a huge defence budget.41. The quality of education is also not satisfactory.1 billion citizens continue to live on less than 1 a day. Whereas.5 billion on military imports. only a false sense of economic growth is spreading throughout India. education. For common man.344 crore for 2010-11. Russia and America. The poverty-stricken people are committing suicides in the country at an alarming rate. making it amongst the largest arms importers in the developing world. The survey revealed the growing sense of division in Indian society between the newly affluent middle classes and the socially disenfranchised rural poor. India has spent as much as $ 10. which bullies neighbouring countries and has no direct threat of aggression from any other country. Two-thirds of India¶s 1. In the past three years. so it cannot justify such a massive defence budget. 1. The proportion of the unemployed to the total labour force has been increasing from 2.

India is a country.Arms buildup and poverty According to the budget presented by the Finance Minister India¶s defence expenditure has been raised to Rs. almost half of all Indians feel that their country¶s economic ³miracle´ has done nothing to benefit them or their families. Israel is poised to grab a major chunk of the whopping $ 30 billion that New Delhi will spend on defence purchases over the next five years. According to a study. a 4 percent increase from the last year¶s 1. It seems quite astonishing that India now is using the internal mishaps as basis for the increase in the defence budget.62 percent (1993-92) to 2.

US President Barak Obama had said that America wanted to stay in Afghanistan for 30 years. but Afghanistan. When the 9/11 occurred. After the American explanation. But it seems through ground realities that it¶s all projects had gone to the dust. The wave of unrest is turning to the bordering cities after crossing the tribal areas. There is a strange kind of pell-mell and it seems that blue fairy has gone somewhere far-off. The local population of Afghanistan is wandering here and there in a decrepit condition. America has always tried to shift the responsibility of its failures in Afghanistan onto Pakistan. It is reiterated from the West that Pakistan's nuclear assets are not safe and may go into the hands of terrorists at any time. The reality is that a hue and cry about terrorism is being raised to satisfy the international public opinion and maintain its domination in Kabul otherwise the situation is that only Pakistan is the victim of terrorism where suicide attacks are occurring in daily while no attack has occurred in America after the 9/11. But Al-Qaeda is not in Pakistan. The US foreign minister should remember that the American administration had held talk with Taliban and Al-Qaeda. The remaining infrastructure of Afghanistan is changing into a heap of ash. It has always been explained from our government that our atomic weapons are quite safe and there is no possibility of them going into the hands of extremists. a plan to attack Afghanistan was made. It had said that it would change the destiny of the country after taking keen interest in the reconstruction of the country. they blame Pakistan. It has started increasing pressure on Pakistan and made the tribal areas its target. After its failure. The presence of the Al-Qaeda members is not possible in Pakistan due to the ongoing operation. The military activities of American and the NATO have turned their cannons toward Pakistan. America had entered the land of Afghanistan with tall claims. a spokesperson for the Pakistan's Foreign Office said that responsible people for the 9/11 are not in Pakistan. the foreign and Indian media are spreading rumours. Despite knowing facts. America should also restrain itself from levelling such types of allegations. The former Bush administration and now Obama have made the change in the strategy to deal with this situation. It is also a reality that any personality of the country going to India always issues a statement against Pakistan. It seems that pressure on Pakistan will be increased in the coming days. The American foreign minister's accusation is not a new thing.Unreasonable blame game American Foreign Minister Hillary Clinton has blamed Pakistan in New Delhi that Pakistan is responsible for the 9/11 and Al-Qaeda leadership poses threats to the world. the Al-Qaeda leadership was in the shelter of Taliban in Afghanistan. The US foreign minister's assurance regarding the safety of Pakistan's nuclear assets is pleasing and based on reality. In his initial statement. we should silence them in this regard.

like America to level allegations against Pakistan to please India. 114 . It is a matter of the international credibility of any country and it is affected by such meaningless and false statements.

³I know not with what weapons World war III will be fought. it is just like creating unnecessary hype about wishful. the statement of the General looks quite relevant.2 billion heads into a utopia that they are sooner becoming a super power. of course. military experts and analysts were discussing about the consequences of this nuclear war. always crying for peace. The agenda was clear as India did not want an end to terrorism. Indian premier.Indian army chief going wild Has India become pawn of geo-strategic politics or the General (Kapoor) gone xenophobic? The 21st century may be termed as time of peace. but I exactly know that war after that will be fought with stones and sticks´. Situation at the moment is quite complex and role of India has gone really dubious on the chess of world power game. Indian leaders are indeed extremely frustrated over increasing hype. wrongly set objectives in all circles of the society. It really kept many in a state of shock and also revealed Indian future design to destabilize the region. Seeing the situation and increasing intolerance in India. The social system of India is founded on inequality. Hence. specially running the state affairs. Indian politicians have falsely driven the nation of 1. which would only bring turmoil in the region. economic growth and war against terrorism by the entire world except India. It was rightly termed as bizarre by someone in the media. or this all is happening as per his strategy. The famous scientist Albert Einstein said. yet they are sounding more cocky and belligerent towards Pakistan and China as well. are now evident from the statements of the highest ranks of 115 . In the process. and. Increasing intolerance. which was termed as limited by the Indian General. They are actually loyal to their economical interests and promoting the agenda of war industry mainly based in the USA. militancy and extremism within their society and armed forces. stabbing the forces that are fighting the war against terrorism. harmony. It will not only bring atomic powers in quarrel but also severely damage the world efforts against war on terrorism. politicians. militancy and terrorism in Indian army. The general did not stop even for a few days and banged the world with another millennium statement saying that India was capable of fighting a two front war with Pakistan and China. intolerance. conservative thoughts and religious extremism. In recent past. who probably required an immediate briefing about the after-effects of a nuclear break out between two atomic powers. of course. seems in no control of its army chief. and its effects will ultimately bring horrified results for the world. as such a uncontrolled statement could end into a conflict. It was not only surprising but also babyish to listen when the Indian army chief in Dec 2009 talked about a limited nuclear war between Pakistan and India. have fallen into the hands of international power brokers who have never been friend to anybody other than themselves. The critics. which were unveiled first in incidents like Samjohta express and Malegaon blasts. not highlighted effectively by regional as well as international media. Reasons are quite obvious but.

Media has recently witnessed the attack of an extremist group on a TV channel and exactly knows that this conservative mindset with religious faith will very soon go out of the hands of state apparatus. Fire in Bhabba atomic plant is the recent example and none knows the exact reason. Extremists groups have crept into the ranks of the army and now implementing their bloodiest thought process. and Indian society.Indian armed forces. General who was indicted in a land scam in Sukhna Cantonment in West Bengal is still pending as general Deepak Kapoor will take decision on his punishment. This is probably the strongest indication that extremist elements and their thought-process are nourishing vastly the Indian army. they are building strength and General Deepak Kapoor has no other option to keep them under control other than giving statements. in general. Discipline of the officers in the ranks of Indian army is pitiable. The statements of the army chief are warranting a future which will only give blood and poverty to India and the region. and a case against a Lt. Reportedly. 116 . Actually everyone in India fears the strength of her extremist elements that are developing to form an organization just parallel to Al Qaeda. as recently about 41 officers were found selling their weapons to terrorists. At the moment. security arsenal of Indian atomic installations have gone so week that fires are breaking out quite frequently in atomic installations of India. Opening nuclear fronts on two borders of India is really horrifying but every free media of India is silent at this critical juncture of time. the corruption money was being sent to extremist elements of Indian army for their activities. which keep these groups happy. but it was a serious security lapse. World must take notice of such hot air and a diplomatic pressure must be built on a country which is responsible for 1. Indian army is undergoing enormous pressures and discipline issues. On the other hand. With the passage of time. in particular.2 billion heads. None knows that why is this all happening? It will be formidable for the world to know some day that this all was actually the result of the activities of extremist elements within the ranks of Indian army.

Though we were very young then. Had there been even an iota of possibility of friendship and tolerance. The arms and ammunitions captured from the terrorists during the ³Operation Rah-e-Raast´ prove that involvement of India in instigating local people against Pakistan. India threatened to attack Pakistan after the attack on its parliament and the Mumbai incidents. The Hindu fanatics stained their hands with the blood of millions of Muslims ± children. At the time of the creation of Pakistan. There was nothing in their eyes except hatred and animosity for the Muslims. Such feelings may be transferred to many among the next generations. When attempts were being made to create the atmosphere more flexible to improve indo-Pak relations. My grandfather usually used to narrate to us the cruel nature of Hindus and their antagonism towards other religions. history and social practices. My quick response was. men.mindedness of the Hindus changing into madness. It is foolish to expect something good from India. a senior journalist friend of mine asked me if the PakIndia relations would really take the form of a permanent friendship. It¶s a lack of far-sightedness on the part of president Zardari when he says that there is no danger to Pakistan from its eastern border. Many centuries are required to dim these scenes of Hindu barbarism. Such ferocity is quite rare. Our ancestors directly witnessed the Hindus¶ narrow-mindedness. Tears used to well up in our eyes on the telling of these tales. But India too continued demanding ³Do more´ like America. women and the aged. our ancestors saw the narrow. Major-General Ijaz 117 . He should understand that India is involved in disruption not only on the eastern border but also on the western border. But the notions of ³greater India´ and ³integral part´ were there behind every face. not in the next 2-3 centuries. We have witnessed many aspects of India¶s cunningness since the creation of Pakistan ± many faces of friendship-like-animosity and enmity-like-friendship and the wolf in sheep¶s clothing. we could see terrible scenes of these moving pictures in front of us. India has been aggressive towards Pakistan. we cannot even think of developing friendship with India. so much so that shameful unilateral elasticity was shown about the jugular vein of Pakistan ± Kashmir. barbarism and ferocity of the Hindus. Attempts were made to please India by forgetting our traditional stance and the sacrifices of the Kashmiri people and by dividing Kashmir into 8-10 pieces. In view of this. Thus we too could see the narrow mindedness. It is supporting and patronizing the terrorists to create instability in the frontier province and in the tribal areas. ³No. It continued insisting on ³part and parcel´ stance whereas the previous rulers had made pieces of the map of our jugular vein. the Muslims of sub-continent would not have demanded a separate country on the basis of the two-nation theory. especially during the previous 2 ± 3 years.War mongering Many attempts were made during the General Musharaf¶s era to change unconditionally the Indo-Pak relationships into µpermanent¶ amity.´ Hindus and Muslims had been living together for centuries and share the same culture.

000 Balochis to spread anarchy in the province. The fact is that it cannot fight against a super power like China. We must increase our defence budget and continue our atomic and missile projects. India is the only country in south Asia which was always the first one to do nuclear tests on and test atomic missiles.Awan. India again has ignored its poor people and increased the defence budget of 2009 and 2010 by 34%. It will give India. What is strange is the fact that Karzai and Obama. It won¶t be unwise to tell our intellectuals that they should stop criticizing Pakistan¶s defence budget and they should not sit silent on an increase in India¶s defence budget. They would attack these installations in the manner of Mumbai and Lahore attacks to get international media attention. According to news in ³Jerusalem Post´. This monster who is creating instability and promoting terrorism in her neighbouring countries is also trying to get a permanent seat in the Security Council of United Nations. India has decided to buy 18 spider missiles worth 100 million dollars from Israel. We should also train our armed forces on the most modern lines to tackle the menace of terrorism. disclosed in an interview that the arms and ammunitions the terrorists are using in Malakand are Indian made. It is regrettable that France and China. Talal Bugti (Tribal chief of Bugti tribe living in north eastern part of Balochistan province in Pakistan ) has openly admitted that the Indian secret agency RAW is giving military training to more than 30. These are the latest land-to-air 118 . The Indian consulates in Afghanistan are busy in destabilizing Pakistan. India is also involved in the disruption in Balochistan. It was also disclosed recently that India is preparing a group of 500 people in Afghanistan for an attack on Pakistan¶s nuclear installations. Thus its total defence budget is now 3200 billion which is 5 times more than that of Pakistan. It is also trying to buy the latest planes from America and submarines from France. India has already experimented ³Brahmos´ which is supersonic in speed and can break the sound barrier. India has also signed some defence pacts to buy the latest weapons from many countries. are supporting this Indian demand. India is trying to appease America and fool the world by convincing them that it is stocking all these weapons for China and not for Pakistan. The tremendous increase in India¶s defence budget in the recent years should be an eye-opener to those who think that our eastern borders are safe. America and the western world a chance to propagate that Pakistan¶s atomic weapons are not safe. the commander of Swat operation. The present wave of target killing is also due to the Indian involvement. are silent although they know everything about India¶s intentions. It is already getting AWACS planes and other weapons from Israel. India is harming peace in Balochistan by providing arms and money to the Baloch Liberation Army and to some other terrorist groups operating from Balochistan. This entire war craze is for the realization of the dream of ³a greater India´ and to maintain its control and hegemony in the region. India is also doing experiments on different types of missiles. who have full control over Afghanistan. despite knowing the hateful face of India and its expansionist designs. It only wants to realize its dream of ³a greater India´ by weakening Pakistan. It is vital for Pakistan that it should not compromise on its defence capabilities in the face of India¶s aggressive designs. 230 latest Russian planes ³Saikhui´ will be included in the Indian air force by 2015.

It is also determined to develop its missile project. India has also got the latest atomic submarine for completion of its aggressive designs against Pakistan.missiles which would be handed over to India soon. 119 . It shows that India is planning to strike Pakistan not only from land and air but also from the sea. It shows that India has the worst aggressive intentions against Pakistan and the Indian rulers are not ready to tolerate Pakistan at any cost.

Nepal has never been someone¶s colony. it doesn¶t have friendly relations with it. Indian rulers didn¶t spare even a state like Bhutan. Its 700. founded SAARC. More than 100. has been interfering in Pakistan¶s affairs.

It has always been free and autonomous.Expansionist Policies Everyone knows India¶s expansionist designs against all its neighbouring countries. its forces arrested many people and took them across the Nepali border. It is no secret how Nepal was barricaded to send its people in the mud of hunger and poverty. It also occupied Junagarh. The Indian government is trying all the time to prove that its neighbouring countries are conspiring against it and are trying to harm it. They have differences on the issues of the border and the rivers.000 people have died in the India-sponsored civil war in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka and Bhutan also reflects the same thing.strong army in Occupied Kashmir is involved in state terrorism and they have killed more than 100. Sri Lanka. It has shown no elasticity in its stance on Kashmir. Which neighbouring country of India is safe from India¶s aggressive intentions? It has been on the forefront in pushing Sri Lanka into the fire of civil war. Pakistan and India. Seven countries of South Asia. Tamil guerrillas were trained in India and sent to Sri Lanka with arms and ammunitions. Despite the fact that pro-Mao rebels used Indian Territory to get training and weapons. But India. India¶s former foreign minister Pranab Mukherji and former Defence Minister A K Anthony told the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu that India didn¶t allow the supply of arms to Sri Lanka. India always refused to seal the borders because it had never recognized the international border. They are still interfering there. 120 . Indian rulers can go to any extremes for the realization of their heinous designs. The Tamil Chief Minister has directed the police to investigate whether some private companies were providing arms to Tamil rebels and Sri Lanka. Maldives. Manader and Hyderabad Deccan. while actually the fact is that India is creating restlessness in the neighbouring countries. A group of Tamil rebels attacked Maldives to maintain dominance over the Indian Ocean. India is greedy about this Hindu state of Himalayas and has been using all illicit means to weaken the country. Bhutan. which comprise of Bangladesh. India occupied Goa and Sikkim without . There is no likelihood that this issue would be resolved in the near future. But the state of Tamil Nadu was involved in supplying arms and ammunition to the Tamil rebels and to the government of Sri Lanka. Contrary to that. Its intervention divided us into two. since the very beginning. It is coercing the helpless people of Occupied Kashmir. and coerced the people for three years. and not interfering in the internal affairs of others.

It seems that it does not want to solve the Kashmir issue. These are the heinous acts of the rulers of this so called democracy that have endangered the security of the SAARC countries. Peace will prevail in this region when people get their rights. India is trying to dominate all the countries around it. 121 .India has never accepted any proposal for its solution. It wants to snatch the rights of the people on the basis of its power and unfair means.

Industries are being established there in anticipation of the increased trade activities from this area. But the tribal areas of Pakistan and Balochistan are in continuous danger. It will also open new ways to the surrounding ports and the transportation of oil and other commodities will become easier. The second important factor is the presence of China in the region. It cannot be ignored that both Pakistan and China are surrounded by dangerous enemies. RAW has established forty terrorist training camps in the area adjacent to Iran (near Makran area in Balochistan) and the Bloch unemployed youth is paid up to Pakistan rupees 10. Oman).hurmaz). Engineers of a Chinese company ³Harbour´ are working on the project. The on-going disruption in the province is part of an international conspiracy. . Indian malice is not hidden. The port is being constructed 180 aeronautical miles away from the straight of Hurmaz (abna-i. It will provide a passage and staying facilities to the ships going East or West which pass by and stay at the ports of Dubai and Salala (Sultanate of Masqat. The Gwader port is being constructed 675 kilometers away from Karachi in the Western part of the country. Central Asia and Europe. they had left no stone unturned to create chaos in the province.Anxiety at Gawader port The chief of the Indian navy has expressed his concern that the Gwader Port which is being constructed at the Southern coast of Balochistan in Pakistan with the help of china contains strategic complexities for India. Pakistan decided to complete the construction of the port with Chinese help. Five thousand acres of land has been acquired to establish an industrial zone in Gwader. Due to Pakistan¶s denial to their control. Some of them were arrested with remote control electronic devices. The South Asian countries and the West are quite aware of the fact that the Gwader Port is extremely important for the region. The Gwadar deep sea port will have positive effects on Pakistan¶s economy. The trade activities will be increased after the completion of the port. The port will improve Pakistan¶s economic position which is not acceptable to India. China is comparatively safer from these enemies. satellite phones and some important documents and maps. which have drawn the attention of the world. Along with these natural coasts large oil reserves are located. It has played its key role in creating disturbance in Balochistan to stop the construction of the port. Pakistan will control passages of vital international trades from this sea rout and it will be able in a position to stop Indian oil ships passing through this route. The statement of the Indian chief of navy expressed his concern over Chinese presence in the region. After the construction of the port. The seven hundred and fifty kilometres long coastal line is considered to be one of the deepest sea areas. The port is being constructed 16 kilometres in the deep water and will provide facilities for the transportation of ships. It has been turned into an important centre of trade as it is located at the juncture of South Asia.000 for their anti state activities. In fact it is a gateway to South Asia which can link the area to foreign trade. whereas some Western countries wanted to have the control of the port. They even tried to create bad faith between China and Pakistan. One wonders why this port is haunting India. From Khunjrab Pass(a historical 122 .

American. So far as the Afghanis are concerned they must remember that actions speak louder than words. During chaos in Balochistan. It is not the duty of Pakistan alone to maintain peace in the region. The foreign minister of Afghanistan who had communist views sought refuge in India during the Taliban regime. Those who claim to be fighting for Islam but are involved in killing their own brothers and desecrating their dead bodies. They provide financial incentives to the unemployed and educated young people to incite them against their own country. mosques. No patriot Pakistani can think of attacking the army men of his own country. It does not allow you to kill even your enemy. The terrorists who attack in Balochistan have their base camps in Kandahar. particularly Pakistan. It is dreaming to be the super power of Asia and it has aggressive designs against its neighbouring countries. and are openly violating the Islamic principles of brotherhood. Both India and Afghanistan are towing the same line collectively. schools and other public places. and they must control the Indian activities in their country instead of using flowery language. The Indian government has not recognized the creation of Pakistan from the core of its heart. They are also helping the Bloch liberation army. shopping malls. Our army soldiers are being beheaded. The Indian secret agency RAW is working in these areas in an organized manner. near the forward base of Afghanistan near Chitral or from Faizabad. Its land bathes in blood daily.The proxy war Pakistan supported America in the war against terrorism but has to pay a heavy price in the shape of human lives. terrorist attacks in civilian areas.

It can further patronize the dissident elements in Balochistan. are responsible for the killing of our army men. properties and serious damages to it economy. There are certain evidences that the agents of RAW are involved in creating disruption in Balochistan. a news item appeared in the press that the Balochistan Liberation Army received a huge amount of money from the Indian Consulate to purchase weapons.

Who will be happy in the destruction of the Pakistani economy? India is responsible for creating the worse situation in Pakistan. Ex-Chief of army staff. Properties are being damaged. Mirza Aslam Beg says that he has many proofs that India helps terrorist activities from Afghanistan. Afghani and Israeli intelligence agencies are doing terrorist activities in Pakistan under the leadership of India. The consulates in Afghanistan are providing every sort of help to these people. and then sent to Pakistan for terrorist activities from Srohilly near Jalaabad or from Asadabad.

Its main aim is to divert the attention of the world from the freedom movements working in its many states. The sooner India and Afghanistan realize it. It is providing support to the anti-Pakistan elements in Sindh and Balochistan to spread hatred against our country. 125 . India is talking about composite dialogues but.countries should also play their role. it encourages and patronizes the enemies of Pakistan. and peace of the region will be jeopardized. the better it is. on the other hand. At one hand. peace will remain in danger in South Asia and the situation will become quite dangerous.

especially the former home minister Abdullah that Pakistan is interfering and sheltering the terrorists. They believe that the tribal areas are theirs. No patriotic Pakistani or someone from the tribal areas can tolerate such a claim. Pakistan even supported and helped Karzai to reach his present high position. No one could even imagine that the Afghan president would be so ungrateful. Those Afghan refugees are also with them who have returned home. Hamid Karzai in a recent interview praised India quite vehemently for spending a lot of money on rebuilding Afghanistan. Uzbek. 128 . We should hate terrorists and save humanity. Brahvi and Urdu languages. he is hurling every accusation on Pakistan. The tribal people have been living here for thousands of years and they have pride and hubris about their culture. Our mission is love for humanity. They are looking for those of the returning mujahedeen who know Balochi. They are harming the locals day in and day out. They are engaged in criminal and sabotaging activities and playing with the lives of the local people. But unfortunately the foreign warriors have thrown them into a pit of troubles. and those who love humanity in fact love God and his prophet (peace be upon him). The Indo-Afghan union also revealed that dozens of arrested innocent Pakistanis in Afghanistan have been sent from Kabul to India with a view to presenting them as terrorists and thus maligning Pakistan at an international level. making Pakistan helpless. This mischievous claim by a foreign war-monger shows what their aims are. not of the tribal people. southern and other tribal areas are usually Tajik and Uzbek. Many of the arrested people during the confrontation in northern. for terrorism in Pakistan. Tajik and some self-exiled Pakistani traitors are getting training there. It is tragic that with a view to hiding his own sins. Pakistan always helped Afghanistan magnanimously and today all the terrorism incidents that we are facing are due to Afghanistan. The accusations by the Afghan president Hamid Karzai and the members of his cabinet. That is why we believe that this heinous role of India and Afghanistan is hateful. Despite all their vicious plans. Such a misleading claim by a foreigner on the Pakistani soil is quite condemnable. we want peace in Afghanistan and in every part of the world. hospitals and roads.

Some foreign elements residing in Waziristan think that they are masters of the tribal areas and the local people are their slaves.

and offering prayers strictly. It is the utmost effort of India to destabilize Afghanistan. Presently. VCR. India has appointed many RAW officials in its consulates. The Indian diplomats and agents are also involved in the smuggling of Afghan women and children who are sold in the Gulf States and are forced to prostitution. and Sri Lanka. The Indian government has also started the onslaught of the Hindu culture in the far flung areas of Afghanistan. The presence of some unwanted persons in Afghanistan is also embittering their mutual relations. Persian and in other regional languages around the clock which aim at the destruction of the morality of the Afghan people. India is dreaming to capture all the countries of South Asia. how they were betrayed by India. They must ask the people of Bhutan. Sikkim. prostitutes and drugs without any restrictions. Nepal. The Afghan administration must keep an eye on the elements that are collaborating with India and are distorting the relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan. to spread hatred against Pakistan and to use the Afghan tribes against Pakistan. The Indian government has devised a plan of taking the majority of the Muslim Afghanis away from Islam by providing financial assistance to the poor Afghan people. They should keep in mind the nasty role of India that it played in Bangladesh. The agents of RAW are distracting the innocent Afghanis the way they did in East Pakistan. Nepal. In the smaller and bigger cities of the country there are prostitution and obscenity centres which are patronized by the government. The Indian government wants to desecrate the religious and national values of the Afghanis so that they could be easily turned against Pakistan and used for Indian designs. religious and moral values. and dish antennas are providing means of debauchery at cheap rates. These centres also provide liquor. It must be kept in mind that in 1970-1971 India initiated the same kind of plan in East Pakistan and later on entered the Indian army in the garb of Mukti Bahni. The Indian embassy in Kabul and consulates in Kandahar and Northern areas are actively involved in these kinds of activities. India is more influential in 129 . cable net works. They must be aware of such elements. It is provoking them to abandon Islam and embrace Hinduism. They are being provided with incentives to turn to Hinduism. TVs. The Indian TV channels telecast obscene programs in Pashto. We want to tell the Afghan leadership that it should be aware of the conspiracies and misleading propaganda campaign of India. The Congress led government of India has started implementing its plan of driving away the innocent Afghan Muslims from Islam. India thinks that it can easily make its strong hold in Afghanistan by driving them away from Islam. Bhutan. To materialize this dream they have opened many hospitals and schools which are run by Hindu staff who de track the Muslims. There is a flood of obscenity and nudity in Afghanistan. and Sri Lanka in general and their Muslim brothers in Bangladesh in particular. Apart from this. The Afghans should not let the bonds of historical and Islamic brotherhood weaken at any moment.Anti-Islam activities The people of Afghanistan love Islam and follow Islamic injunctions like fasting.

if the minority and majority tribes were deprived of this representation peace could never be established in Afghanistan and the war ridden land of the country will always be a centre of chaos. It¶s not only the duty of Pakistan to play its role for maintaining peace in the region but the other countries must also realize their responsibility.Afghanistan than Pakistan. Peace of the region will be shattered in to bits. majority of the tribes and majority of the Pashto speaking people in the government so that democracy could flourish and peace could be established in Afghanistan. they should restrict the Indian activities in Afghanistan. God forbid. The sooner India and Afghanistan realize it. If the leadership of these countries does not adopt a responsible attitude the peace in South Asia will always be in danger and the situation will be quite destructive. At this stage. 130 . So far as the Afghanis are concerned they must keep in mind that actions speak louder than words. the better it is. we want to request all the tribes and their leaders in Afghanistan that a reasonable representation must be given to the entire minority. Therefore.

Instead. may get the US a respectable withdrawal.Indian activities in Afghanistan War on terror in Afghanistan seems moving towards negotiations as allied forces are exhausted to eradicate al Qaeda. Sooner or the later. Reliable sources have disclosed that Indian consulate in Kandahar has dispatched more than hundred Pakistani dissidents for six months training in India. Ignoring Pakistan¶s sacrifices in the war against terrorism. America is passionate to go all-out to have peace in Afghanistan either it be through dialogue or whatsoever possible way out to have safe and respectable exit from Afghanistan. Although people consider terrorist activities a retaliated move from the terrorists but still a number of evidences have been gathered which established keen Indian involvement in destabilizing Pakistan by interfering in Baluchistan. still the US never snubs India who is busy in subversive activities against Pakistan and that too using Afghan soil. America was activated but no solid action has yet been taken to stop India. These actions were designed to engage security forces in internal front and to demoralize the masses of this land. A number of times. Without American patronage. Pakistan is frontline ally of the US in war on terror. On return these persons will be paid five hundred to one thousand American dollars and will be deputed to the terrorist groups in tribal areas and elsewhere. But Americans seem looking for a superfluous resolve of the issue. The US is repeating the history by repeating the same blunders as to suppress Afghans by using force. Indian agencies have been running training camps in Afghanistan. Although certain Afghan leaders have given proposals to the US which if observed. Some of them would be retained in Afghanistan for their further and time to time utilization against Pakistan. till America considers the exit in cover of negotiations as respectful. The US understands that the delays in talks and withdrawal of the forces will pave the way to the fate the USSR had met. it is being felt that America has given an under-hand go ahead to Indian agencies to operate against Pakistan. American has turned a blind eye towards it as no action is suggested against Indian consulates. FATA and in big cities of the country. the US officials support Indian stance and appreciate its interest even in training Afghan national 131 . It had to face suicide bombings and actions in retaliation resulting in loss of precious lives of many innocent citizens and the security officials. They have asked the US to pull out its forces within six month time and handover security responsibilities to Afghan national army and the police. Respect and victory are not at the same pace sometimes. it is impossible for any country to make its own infrastructure in Afghanistan and that too at a time when Afghanistan is under American control. American has to realize that it has killed many Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan as its action caused severe collateral damage to the human lives and their properties. It depicts India enjoys full US support and its patronage for doing the same.

To fulfil all the above mentioned designs. 132 . bombs blasts. which ensured peace. One could µappreciate¶ Indian resolve to manage its stay in Afghanistan but India must realize that the moment American forces will ensure µrespectful¶ withdrawal from Afghanistan.e.army. this issue has subsided for the time being. India is looking forward to have some sort of permanent role in Afghanistan to get its vested agenda to be met by destabilizing Pakistan and establish it¶s the only power which can see into its eyes and possesses the strategic and military strength to wipe of Indian designs against Pakistan. crushing economy and spoiling the infrastructure of the country to declare it as a failed state. harmony and justice in the society? India is living in fool¶s paradise by thinking that they might get hold of Afghans after withdrawal of allied forces. However. How would they be comfortable with their permanent presence on their land. but after Pak Army Chief Gen Kayani¶s clear warning that Pakistan will never accept such move which permits India to train Afghan national army. India¶s training camps are in full swing and are continuously sending their lots to Pakistan for different assigned tasks i. that is prone to Mullah Umer-like governments. Whatsoever infrastructure is established in Afghanistan. suicidal attack and other activities to destabilize Pakistan by creating uncertainty among the masses. and that too to destabilize the neighbouring Islamic countries. they would somehow or the other have to leave that place as Afghans have the history of conquering India time and again.

Why did India backtrack from that commitment? It is still a mystery. It may be recalled that while at Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt in 2009. travel and development. India must sort out its own issues. He reportedly told the King that if there was cooperation between Pakistan and his country. The recent talks between foreign secretaries also could not make any headway except the two diplomats saw each other faceto-face for some time. For this Saudi Arabia. vast opportunities would open up for trade.a word. in what is being called cross border terrorism for targeting India. it could be resolved through dialogue ± the only way to sort out issues amongst nations. but failed. There is need to resolve all the issues with Pakistan. Yet. But to reach that end. His visit to Saudi Arabia. India pretends to be allergic to. there ought to be the fullest realization by the Indian leadership that all roads to peace. Then. While on way back from Riyadh. 133 . whose country had nothing to do with Afghan affairs. what went wrong. India had been desperately lobbying in Afghanistan. would be ready to use its µgood offices¶ if not µmediation¶ . That was despite the fact that all the countries neighbouring Afghanistan knew very well that India could be a spoiler rather than a facilitator. However. prosperity and well-being of the one-fifth population of the world lead through the result-oriented composite dialogue. and that all these would create prosperity in the region. tried to influence the parties concerned through King Abdullah. the first in the past three decades by any Indian premier. and for that matter any country. he did not say what sort of reaction or response he got. has failed to convince King Abdullah that Pakistan is involved. This was also a part of his agenda for talks in Riyadh. including Kashmir. nobody knows. in any way. Mr Singh. One would ask the Indian premier as to what was the hitch therein. Dr Singh told the media that he had requested King Abdullah to use his µgood offices¶ to check the so-called cross border terrorism by Pakistan. Mr Singh had agreed with his Pakistani counterpart Yusuf Raza Gilani that dialogue was the only way forward. and if there was any.India can be spoiler in Afghanistan Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has failed to muster Saudi support for his country¶s stances on relations with Pakistan and its possible role in Afghanistan. through a composite dialogue. It was also agreed that the so-called terrorism would not be linked to the composite dialogue process.

Not only in Kabul but in all of Afghanistan. On one hand. particularly the Indian air force can target any place in Pakistan from this base. After the American withdrawal it will fall in the hands of India. Tajikistan. It is only 200 kilometres away from the Uzbek Afghan border. Generally this belt is 50 kilometres wide but. Therefore. If we look at the world map. Unfortunately India has become a symbol of danger for its neighbouring countries. therefore its atmosphere is dry and hot. The Afghan government is fully supporting these Indian activities. An area of more than one thousand acres has been procured for this purpose. Tajikistan lies in a desert area where rain fall is scanty. Indian forces. Kirghizstan. The Monsoon season passes without rain. Later on the same was used by Ahmad Shah Masud. we realize that these two army bases are a great challenge for the security of the Northern areas of Pakistan and the Independent Kashmir. the head of the Northern Alliance. it is only 16 kilometres in distance. India has established its base in Tajikistan and.Military bases in Central Asia Indian diplomatic relationships with Pakistan and other neighbouring countries were already strained. It is only 500 kilometres away from Tashqand. India has established its consulates in the areas adjacent to Pakistan which are working as centres for terrorist activities in Pakistan. it is establishing a big army base at ³Avanti Pura´. Its real target is none but Pakistan. The Dakhan belt in the Afghan province of Badakhshan. but now it has collaborated with Israel. America is vacating one of its big army bases at Khanabad in Uzbekistan at the intense protest of the Uzbek people. The biggest evidence is that there is not a single country which does not complain of 134 . The distance between Pakistan and the states which emerged after the disintegration of Soviet Union is quite short. In a way. separates Pakistan from Tajikistan. After Tajikistan. Pakistan is also a neighbouring country of Tajikistan. Iran. on the other hand. at a certain point. a few kilometres away from Sri Nagar. India wants to besiege Pakistan by establishing these bases in Tajikistan. the capital of Uzbekistan. and to further pressurize Pakistan. Uzbekistan and Kirghizstan in the north. These states can be called the neighbours of Pakistan. and Kazakhstan must be aware of the expansionist aims of India lest it attack a country secretly and damage it. As India has established its bases there. This army base located near Pakistan at a suitable place in Central Asia is complete now and is being used by India. China in the East and Afghanistan are located in the South of Tajikistan. Pakistan has to face the enemies from two sides. The air distance between Islamabad and Dushanbe is the same as that of Lahore and Islamabad. Uzbekistan. it has installed its MI 17 helicopters and Mig 29 fighter planes at the Ayani air base of Tajikistan These army bases are located near Dushanbe in Tajikistan which was used by the Russian forces against Mujahedeen during the Afghan Jihad. And to have an access to the natural resources of Central Asia. all the SAARC countries of South Asia and Afghanistan. A 34% increase in the war budget of India unravels its deplorable war designs.

However. and should collaborate with the Islamic countries to make the rulers of Tajikistan and the Central Asian states aware of the Indian aims. 135 .India¶s attitude. Afghanistan. Will India use these bases against China? It just wants to show America that it can make an aggressive attack on China whenever it is required. and all the SAARC countries. Our foreign ministry should start a campaign at every level against the expansionist designs of India. There is a chance that it has entered Tajikistan to devour the central Asian states one by one after weakening them. Therefore every kind of military activity from India in this region is against Pakistan. so that they do not allow it to have a strong hold there. India has expansionist designs in south Asia and has become a sign of danger for all of its neighbouring countries.

It will also monitor Pakistan along with Israel. Pakistani advancement in atomic technology is undesirable for both India and Israel. India and Israel is not only operative against Iran and Pakistan. an arch rival of the US. It thinks that Pakistan is the leading influence upon Arab countries not to accept Israel. is also concerned over Pakistan¶s nuclear program. Despite having thousands of miles distance. but it has zeroed in all their resources to completely eliminate all Muslims of the world. Israel has always opposed Pakistan. That¶s why it is an active part of every anti-Pakistan alliance. Britain and many other western countries. Sheer distance has checked Israel so far to attack Pakistan. Indo-Israeli relations are established since long. Many of its spying satellites are already in air. Israel. Despite the physical distance of Israel from Pakistan. Israel has launched a satellite from the Indian plains to shoot pictures of the Iranian nuclear installations and movements there. Israel views if Pakistan dies out. Rather it has adopted a way of scheming with India for the destruction of Pakistan. India met its petroleum needs from these Arab countries. Ofik five. Amos one and Amos two are a few to be mentioned. We should pre-empt it as of now.´ Indo-Israeli collaboration is not a new story. Ofik seven. The Israeli intentions against the Muslim Ummah are no secret now. Now their friendship for a mutual anti-Pakistan stance has explicitly unfolded. it can dominate the Islamic. The objective of the satellite is to spy upon Pakistani and Iranian atomic activities.Satellite for espionage A satellite named Tuksar was sent in to the air from Sri Hari Kota Launching Centre in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. countries. It can not only take pictures from a microscopic lens but can also perform well in bad weather and dark clouds. That¶s why friendship with India is not only necessary for us but we can also benefit from Indo-Pak disputes. like India. Pakistan has not yet accepted Israel. Israel is contemptuous towards Pakistan. These spying satellites monitor Iran and many Arab countries round the clock. Mental resources and military might and situation of Pakistan can any time cause troubles for us. Israel via Indian missions has entered those countries which do not have direct diplomatic ties with it. it is dwindling around our borders with assistance from India. but is also scheming against us in collaboration with India. Eros B. One of the reasons for secrecy of their relations was India¶s close relations with Soviet Russia. The Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurian had advised his nation in one of speeches made in 1967 that ³International Jewish movement should not be misled about Pakistan. particularly the Arab. This satellite was developed by Israeli aerospace with the most modern technology. It is creating troubles in collaboration with India and cannot stand Pakistan at any cost. India was also closely associated with those Arab countries that were part of the Soviet bloc. Israel not only threatens to attack our atomic installations. Mutual satellite is a part of this 136 . The satanic triangle of the US. but both the countries are silent over their spying operations. It was in the air that the Israelis intend to attack the atomic laboratory of Pakistan in Kahuta.

That¶s why despite spelling charms of peace by tongue.conspiracy. and depriving it of a sustainable defence guarantee from its atomic program. They cannot accept the existence of Pakistan. freedom and security. they are busy scheming against Pakistan by throwing it into political and economic instability. its progress.

The 140 . who can do no real work because most of them get funds from the governments. but we never thought that China is talking of making pieces of India. In the beginning of August. It means that a cat of a lion¶s body has jumped into a bevy of pigeons. in China they are answerable to the State Council or Communist Party of China. because they certainly reflect the government¶s policies. which itself is the biggest think tank of the country. ³This is the work of an individual and it does not reflect China¶s official position.´ The question arises that if this does not reflect China¶s official position. which are outwardly free from governmental influences (and some of them are really free). but. They are not like our think tanks which have been stuffed with retired bureaucrats. We are accustomed to listening to such bragging that America would divide Pakistan into pieces. should break India into 20-30 pieces and establish Free states there.´ Zhan has also talked about Arunachal Pradesh near China¶s border which is a bone of contention between the two countries. The second thing is clear while the first one is worth consideration. air marshals and journalists.´ Zhan adds. The people were dumb-founded on this news. then why did the Indian government take a note of it? Evidently. They are also different because they comprise of real scholars and literati. especially when they talk to the people. BBC broadcasted this news that the Chinese institute of Strategic Studies. Bangladesh. for which they should look unofficial. generals. because a big country like India which has such a strange and unfamiliar political system cannot eliminate the poverty of such a huge population just as China has done and is functioning under its own indigenous system (the same thing is true to Pakistan). Contrary to American think tanks. despite the general elections during the last 62 years.India and China China¶s think tanks are quite different. said that India would break up and divide into 30 autonomous states. with the daily income of less than 2 dollars (in Pakistan this income is comparatively and shamefully a bit lesser). The other area is Xaichen. This report has been eliminated from the internet. Zhan said. The Indian foreign ministry has rejected Zhan¶s report in these words. like the track-2 diplomacy with India. Nepal and Bhutan. while referring to an analysis of a Zhan Leo (which means µstrategy¶). ³Beijing. More than 76% of the Indian people are living in extreme poverty. There is no need to mention that sometimes we don¶t get anything important from them or the government doesn¶t want to use them. Zhan says that after such a division. But they have little or no influence on the government policy. ³China should work with different nationalities like the Tamil and Kashmiri people so that they could establish their own autonomous states. according to ³Times of India´. The Chinese think tanks should be taken seriously. it means that the report is really serious and it was taken seriously.

³The reasons given for the invasion are senseless. Chen Zheo Chen replied in ³China Business News´.000 troops in Tibet where China has a small military garrison can create an imbalance. Then. and which is involved in anti-India activities at their instigation. though America cannot be stopped from trying to show a miracle of the Tiananmen square. China¶s ³shop of exports´ (it reflects jealousy) has not ³closed´. in a long article in ³India Today Review´. The world leadership went into the hands of America and the Soviet Union. Verma says that unemployment there is 14%.´ The deployment of 60. he must also know how the fear of the Cultural Revolution has strengthened the Chinese people. ³Does its army have enough weapons to face Beijing and Islamabad on two fronts? And. It has created a danger of communists¶ grip on society. Indian democracy is an eye sore for China. Only the destruction of mankind is the terrible scene. It is not facing any danger from the communists¶ grip. in which the former won and the 20th century was called µAmerica¶s century¶. ³China is worried at the attitude of Pakistan. 141 .´ (µpeace loving¶ is a heavy word for India.´ He adds. The shop of exports has closed because of a decrease in the exports of China and there is an unusual restlessness on the internal level. ³China would invade India before 2012. and there is a capital outflow through Hong Kong. ³Yes.´ This is Bhart Verma¶s thought full of exaggeration. writes. ³The communists of China feel the need of a military victory to unite their people. In 1962.Indo-China war of 1962 was fought over the issue of the ownership of these regions.´ After that Verma asks if the Indian leadership would tolerate the ³intensity of war´. The peace loving India is ready for war neither on internal nor on external fronts. what is Mr Chen saying? He is saying. India can give all the answers. India¶s extra 60. which is their right hand. If Bhart Verma knows what China is. Why? Beijing has many reasons to teach India the last lesson and this way China would gain certain dominance over Asia by the end of this century. They must remember that everything does not happen according to the plan. Indian army acted aggressively after a small row with China in 1959. They should also remember that the sun of their sultanates set when the European imperialists started fighting with each other.´ It seems to have started. war is possible. After that Bhart Verma. and that is India¶s µNew Forward Policy¶ which may increase border issues and compel China to use force. will the civil administration be able to face internal security challenges (meaning µscenarist forces) which will be patronized from abroad?´ Verma answers: ³No. There is only one possibility of a war. China¶s defensive attack was limited but successful.000 more Indian troops on the controversial border is a part of her recent forward policy.) In response to Verma¶s wrong notion about China¶s invasion of India in 2012. It is its forward policy.

But the Indian stand was indirectly expressed by its leaders and media. India itself faces separatist movements which are the result of acute poverty and social injustices. on August 11.´ The state-run China Daily. having no official backing. Indian Army chief General Deepak Kapoor openly revealed that the Indian Army ³is now revising its five-year-old doctrine´ and preparing for a ³possible two-front war with China and Pakistan´. Although Sino-Indian differences have always existed due to the Indian presumption that peace-loving China is its adversary. We should reduce the Chinese footprints on the Indian Ocean. on July 27. India has always blamed China for backing Maoist uprising. As a matter of fact. 2006. Now this indigenous movement has expanded to other Indian regions. especially on its immediate neighbours«matching division should be changed to technological advancement on the Indian military side. In 2009. but Indian high officials took it as the state voice of Beijing. but if we reach a point of conflict over Tibet. For example. However.´ It is notable that in order to conceal its covert activities. Sino-Indian rift which was in its embryonic stage has come on the surface. it is a popular insurgency by the 142 . yet the same entered into an alarming situation when on December 29. alleging for supplying arms to these insurgents. instead of addressing the root causes of the Maoist uprising. has been playing a double game with Beijing by acting upon a secret strategy. In this respect. denounced the Lama as a ³splittist´ and pointed out that he has ³collaborated with the Indian military and American CIA to organize Indian Tibetan special border troops to fight their way back into Tibet. the former foreign minister Yashwant Sinha had said. However. we should be prepared for the eventuality. the Indian government recently intensified its blame-game against china. India Today cited Navy Chief Admiral Suresh Mehta disclosing: ³China is likely to be more assertive on its claims. Particularly. but this statement clearly shows that the Indian rulers are ready to go even to the extent of war especially against China. Indian leaders and media seriously reacted to an article of a Chinese think-tank. While New Delhi is no match to Beijing in conventional and nuclear weapons.´ New Delhi shows that despite the Sino. 2009. it does not favour independence of Tibet and avoids propaganda against Beijing. which suggested the disintegration of India. it was the only personal opinion of a Chinese think-tank.

Recently. on February 26.downtrodden that have massive support of people for their ideology.057-kilometre Line of Actual Control (LAC). with the tactical support of the sole superpower.´ India¶s misperceptions about Beijing in connection with the Maoist movement could also be judged from the fact that it has also been accusing the latter for supporting the Maoist insurgency in Nepal.´ He further said that. on January 2. Taking cognizance of Kapoor¶s threat against China and Pakistan. While the Indian allegations were already proven untrue when in the recent past. As regards to the Indian new military build-up against China. 2009. ³Such a path could fix India on a selfdestructive mechanism.

Beijing and Islamabad cannot neglect their common defence when 143 . under the pretension of the China factor. In this regard. when India detonated five nuclear tests. With the help of Israel and America. It is of particular attention that in May 1998. India has also erected more than 10 new helipads and roads between the Sino-Indian borders. Pakistan¶s province. ³India¶s Maoist rebels are now present in 20 states and have killed more than 900 Indian security officers«India¶s rapid economic growth has made it an emerging global power but also deepened stark inequalities in the society. irritates both Washington and New Delhi. ³The Indian Army Chief¶s statement exhibits a lack of strategic acumen. south of the Chinese border-the Aksai China area. the then defence minister George Fernandes had declared publicly that ³China is India¶s potential threat No1. India has also blamed China for backing a Maoist study centre so as to cause an uprising in Nepal. intends to make India the mini-superpower of Asia by containing China and de-stabilizing Pakistan as well as Iran.´ However. the Pakistan Joint Chief of Staff Committee (JCSC) Chairman General Tariq Majid rightly indicated.

The Indian defence ministry planners are working on building additional airfields and increasing troops ± raising two new mountain divisions to be deployed along the 4. and accusing Beijing. However.

The Indian game plan against Beijing could also be assessed from the fact that New Delhi is grabbing waters of neighbouring countries. the Sino-Indian rift has only widened in the recent times. The Chinese plan to build a dam on the river Yarlung Tsangpo in the upper reaches of Tibetan plateau. reiterating that it would adversely affect navigation in the Brahmanputra River. So the Sino-India rift is also part of the greater Cold War between the US and China. Indian reservations regarding China¶s infrastructural projects in Azad Kashmir are unjustified and discriminative. Hence. India which has wideranging agreements with Beijing. Both the countries have signed 11 agreements to enhance bilateral cooperation in diverse sectors. Returning to our earlier discussion. apparently emphasizes mutual cooperation.their adversaries are following a covert strategy. 144 . President Zardari had decided to visit China after every three months to further cement ties between the two old friends. Besides. but has been acting upon anti-China secret diplomacy.

some people cleared the forests in Nepal¶s part and settled there. In a meeting of the Technical Committee. There are 54 places in 21 districts where complaints of occupation of 60. Still the war is going on. There is illegal occupation on 37. but no policy has been evolved so far on this issue. The basic causes of the conflict are those areas of Nepal which are near India¶s borders. 1.Occupation of Nepalese Territory Nepal and India have been fighting a long war over a Nepalese piece of land. the Nepalese government and parliament have realized the seriousness of the matter.000 hectares in Kalapani. Nepal has totally rejected India¶s proposal. India believes that that piece of land would be crucial to stop Chinese forces¶ from advancing.600 hectares 145 . the East India Company claimed that Antudanda was theirs. Kalapani is the basic cause of the row between the two countries. A committee of the foreign affairs has issued this statement that all the issues have been resolved except the Susta and Kalapani issues. In a meeting of both the countries on the foreign ministers¶ level.000 hectares are so common. yet there are many other places which India has occupied. The dialogue about the border between the two countries has been going on for a long time. On March 4th 1816 Nepal and the East India Company signed a document which ended the long row about the border between the two countries. The Indian Foreign Minister insisted on a status quo. and 26 districts of Nepal are near the Indian border. Now this issue has reached the foreign office and it should reach the office of the prime minister too because the border issue is always a serious issue for every country. It is 20. It is clear as daylight that this issue can be solved if the Nepalese Prime Minister works on it seriously. But it never ended because soon after the signing of the contract. But then somehow Nepal succeeded in getting it back in 1838. due to the increasing population of India. which later on was given to Sikkim. It is quite interesting to note that both Nepal and India have shown this piece of land as their property. This border issue lingered on even after 1947. The Nepalese government did not deal with this problem in the way it should have been dealt.276 feet high above the sea level. Nepal proposed that the Kalapani issue should be resolved according to the map of between 1850 and 1856 whereas India wants its solution according to the map of 1879. 250 laborers came to Susta to work on the Bhaisaloton project and settled there. Nepal¶s Prime Minister has also expressed his concern. Those who are responsible for this loss of that piece of land must be punished. The Nepalese documents show the Kalee River as Nepal¶s border whereas the Indian map refutes that and shows the river as µKutiyangh¶. It is worth mentioning about the Susta border row that India has occupied 140002 hectares of land during the last 72 years. as is evident from their MPs¶ recent visit of the Susta area when the foreign relations committee is focusing on it. The border line between Nepal and India is 1808 km long. but the political reason is the fact that BJP stopped the Biharis from going to Nepal. But what does it mean? This is no solution to the problem. Though belated. Their condition is a vote for their party.000 hectares in Susta. The conflict has been going on between the two countries because India changed the name of this river. In fact. 14.

The other natural reason is this that Susta is situated where there are Indian pieces of land on its north and east and the river Naryai flows on its west. There was a horrible war between India and China in 1962. After that the Kalapani issue emerged. But drawing of maps is no solution because they are prone to amendment. The natural cause is the flood because the floods of 1845. and it separates Susta from Nepal. That is why the government is declaring that all the issues between India and Nepal have been resolved except the issues of Kalapani and Susta. The news about the Indian occupation of Nepal¶s territories is sometime published in newspapers. India illegally occupied Nepal¶s territory on 22 November 2007 for the last time. 98% of work on the border has been finalized in a meeting of a joint technical boundary meeting in New Delhi. It is easy for India to occupy it. There are 5 reasons for the occupation of the land in Susta including the Susta border issue and some other natural. it is important that it gets back all its territories which are one fourth of Nepal in the same way as China got Hong Kong back from Britain. .in Mechi and 450 hectares in Yarastan. 1980 and 1989 have changed the course of the Naryari river and India claims that the land that the river is flowing on is theirs. we can see a lot of illegal occupations. 1954. If we observe the border. social and political ones. The social reason is the fast growth of Indian population. If Nepal wants to prove right the concept of a greater Nepal. The territory that Nepal has lost so far was never the property of the East India Company. 146 .

India is a wolf in sheep¶s clothing and wants to deprive all the south Asian countries of their freedom. which created many problems for the people of Nepal. It wants to weaken the other south Asian countries and make its markets there. and its state religion is Hinduism.RAW¶s activities in Nepal Nepal is the only Indian neighbour where almost everyone ± from Prime Minister to a policeman ± is on the pay role of RAW. This mission completed its tenure in January 2008 but the government of Nepal has asked for an extension in its stay to put the country on the road to democracy and peace. Why? Nepal is the only country in the world where the state religion is Hinduism. As I have stated several times before. RAW agents are there in government parties. India is behind all the disruption and economic difficulties there. That is why it objects to UN mission¶s steps towards peace. but then he signed some aid pacts. Many were made homeless and the exact number of the disappeared persons is not known. Indian intervention in Nepal¶s internal affairs started from then. India is criticizing it. Indian Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru was very upset when Shah Mahendra came into power in 1960. But India is thinking of occupying this land of Hindu faith on any pretext. It is not ready to even tolerate its neighbouring Hindu country Nepal. Then the genocide of the king¶s family in 1990 was according to the wishes of India. It is dreaming of occupying Bhutan and Nepal. who keep that country in its tentacles. whereas the mission¶s leader says that they are looking for a safe passage for transport of food to the people 147 . Everyone knows India¶s dangerous designs about the neighbouring countries. No longer does the Congress leave due to the people¶s protests and a strong opposition and the opposition coalition forms the government. A mission of the UNO (UNMIN) was sent to Nepal for a complete restoration of democracy and peace there because the Indian intervention had created a civil warlike situation in Nepal. The government of the Congress in Nepal means that the Delhi government is ruling Nepal too. India has been dreaming of becoming a super power in Asia and it has aggressive designs against the neighbouring countries. India wants instability in Nepal. Nepal is also an important member of SAARC. The UN mission has taken action in Nepal¶s Terai area which is also the centre of pro-India Mao rebels. Peace prevails in Nepal and Mao rebels¶ attacks decrease when Congress rules there. Nepal¶s Congress is in fact another part of the Indian Congress. The Mao rebels¶ attacks become severe and strong. India helped and trained the Mao rebels. India¶s secret agencies are active in creating instability in Nepal. lawlessness reaches the highest point. but the fact is that SAARC has never been an effective body because of India¶s objectionable attitude. Nepal is a weak neighbouring country of India. India has pushed Nepal into a civil war situation with its conspiracies. It has already occupied Sikkim. About 13000 Nepalese were killed in the civil war.

If the mission is extended. 148 .of Terai. it would be able to find some more heinous intentions of India which would end Indian hegemony in Nepal. It is the duty of the Nepali government to check the vicious activities of Indian saboteurs because India is determined to mar the relationships between Nepal and other Muslim countries. The mission has found some irrefutable proofs of Indian intervention in Nepal¶s internal affairs.

talks between King Wang chuck and the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh resulted in the signing of 12 agreements including four on hydropower generation. but India and other countries including US and Britain are attempting to abolish monarchy in Bhutan.

India will prepare the initial technical reports for four new hydro-electricity projects with capacity of over 3500MW in the Himalayan kingdom. Kurichu and Tala. India has hegemonic ambitions in the region and Bhutan is an easy prey. The Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had concluded an agreement with Bhutan in 2008 that it will help Bhutan build additional installed capacity of 10. In the field of education. like his father is a ray of hope for the Bhutanese people and is contributing a lot for the uplift and development of his country. India¶s main objective seems to create a greater India by placing Bhutan through a loose 149 .

In the information Technology (IT) sector. a Himalayan kingdom of 635.000 government officials. 5. formal coronation of 29-year-old Bhutanese King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wang chuck took place in Thimphu. This cannot be achieved unless the minds of Bhutanese are brainwashed with the help of IT. It is pertinent to mention here that India is also assisting Bhutan to build three major hydro-electric projects at Chukh. Under this project. 2008.

It is interesting to note that previously the SAARC conference used to fail due to India¶s interference in the internal affairs of the member countries. It is an irony that Bhutan can only purchase non-lethal military stores and equipment and there is a requirement of approval from New Delhi. Although Bhutan shares borders with China but India claims that a pro-China policy is not viable for Bhutan. warlike material or stores without assistance and approval of India. and not India. India must realize that Bhutan is a sovereign country and changing the language of the 1949 treaty won¶t suffice. The times have changed. if the Indian armed forces are so smart why are they unable to control the law and order situation in more than 28 of its insurgency hit states. We have an example of Sri Lanka before us when the Indian armed forces physically occupied Sri Lanka in 1986 in the name of helping Colombo to get rid of insurgents. Article 2 of the treaty requires Bhutan to be guided by the advice of India in the conduct of its external relations while Article 6 bars Bhutan from import of arms. India is also controlling Bhutan External Relations through the 1949 treaty between the two countries. India needs to change its imperialist and capitalist approach to bring peace in the region. The Indians¶ past record is not very clean as regard to Bhutan. it would be the greatest folly for Bhutan to fall in this trap. Although there were a lot of reviews and discussions but still Bhutan cannot frame its independent policies. whether or not to purchase lethal or non-lethal weapons. 150 . It is time to get united for which SAARC can act as a powerful platform in bringing the South Asian nations together. Bhutan should be allowed to make its own independent decisions and be treated at par with other countries of the world. During the ongoing discussions between King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wang chuck and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. One wonders. One wonders that the agreement in hydropower generation is New Delhi¶s tool to enter Bhutan and win the hearts of masses. ammunition. It needs the decision of the Bhutanese King and its people. it also came to light that India is interested in the security and defence cooperation with Bhutan. India believes that since Bhutan is surrounded by India on three sides and is dependent on India for access to the sea it should be part of India. No doubt.confederation under Indian union. machines.

151 . Moral. material and financial assistance is regularly provided by Indian trained-operatives to strengthen and then launch ETIM members from Afghan soil against China. To this end Indians may produce fake identities and push these passport holders to china and later reveal it as proof of Pakistani origin Taliban involvement in Xingjian. while taking advantage of the fragile situation. Indians have made progress into camps reportedly established by ETIM in Northern and Southern region of Afghanistan. It is believed that Indian intelligence operatives based in Afghanistan.Terrorism in China An NGO has been established by Indian spy agency RAW in Badakhshan. They are being encouraged to target vital installations and high profile personalities in the Chinese province. Some other reports suggest that the Indian agents have categorically instructed their operatives in Afghanistan and elsewhere for maintaining close contacts with Al-Qaeda for their financial need for ETIM leadership. The Indian persuasive efforts and training of Chinese dissidents are facilitated with the active support of Afghan intelligence. These Chinese nationals are believed to be the members of East Turkmen Independent Movement (ETIM) and are considered suitable for creating unrest in Northern china. They will be subsequently trained and sent to the Chinese province of Xingjian for creating instability. Indians also aim to implicate Pakistani Taliban in these activities. have made concerted efforts to attract maximum Chinese dissidents by offering them wide range of incentives. It is learnt that these trained Chinese dissidents will be sent to Xingjian province in the garb of businessmen through various routes to ensure their safe landing. This move is aimed at creating cracks in the friendly relationship between Pakistan and China. including security forces. which persuades Chinese nationals to join it.

These extremist Hindu organizations are against Pakistan. A visitor. They have never accepted the creation of Pakistan. but also increases hatred and animosity. Hindus are very clever and cunning. Some people of India want friendly relationship with Pakistan. decapitated the Pakistani soldiers and treated even the Bengalis in the same way. The strings of this net of ³a greater India´ are in the hands of RAW. too? They were none other than the agents of the Indian secret agency ³RAW´. But these extremist Hindu organizations take them back to those hateful days of 1947. History proves that the Muslims of the sub-continent demanded a separate country for themselves because an anti-Muslim environment had been created there. but the Hindu bigots always gave the impression that Pakistan is aggressive and oppressive. after a keen and careful observation. They cannot occupy 152 . Many people are killed but dead bodies are never desecrated. is respected as an honourable guest. It not only adversely affects the development of both the countries. The strained relationships between both the countries. RAW. The whole world. admitted that Pakistan is neither aggressive nor has it been sending trained terrorists to Kashmir. even if he is an enemy. RAW established 40 terrorist training camps in the Makran Division of Balochistan ± adjacent to Iran. They even spare their lives if enemies visit them. They are wolves in sheep¶s clothing. About 60 of them have been arrested. nor does our religion allow it. There are so many similarities between the East Pakistan of 1971 and the tribal areas of present days. Similar is the situation in Waziristan. are due to the mean and biased activities of these sectarian Hindu organizations. satellite mobile phones and some important documents and maps. Everyone knows how the Sikhs of East Punjab treated the migrating Muslims. It is a fact that India and Pakistan are two different countries. Enmities and animosities of the tribal people linger on for many generations and even for many centuries.000 to the unemployed Balochi young men to use them for anti-state activities. who were those people who not only attacked the security personnel but also were so cruel towards the local population. Extremist and sectarian organizations of India have been active not only in India but also in other countries. They cannot be trusted. The police recovered from these arrested people remote control electronic devices. whether they belong to a religious party or are non-religious. Borders between them cannot be eliminated. in the guise of Mukti Bahni. Nor can friendly relations be maintained between them. would never do such a heinous crime against even the worst of their enemies.A wolf in sheep¶s clothing Those who attacked the security personnel and butchered them in Waziristan and Swat were not the local people because the local people of that area. The Kashmiris have been fighting for their freedom since 1947 against the occupied forces of India. In East Pakistan. Facts cannot be denied. Then. Pakistan always extended her hand of friendship. It paid a monthly salary of Rs 1. They never accepted the creation of Pakistan.

The whole nation has been suffering because of the wrong decision of the leadership in 1947. This is also a historical fact that Mountbatten wrote a letter to the Kashmiri raja and the Indian forces entered Kashmir that very day. how could the newly created Pakistan remain unconcerned about the situation in Kashmir? India benefited from Pakistan's shortage of manpower. the state of Jammu and Kashmir should have joined Pakistan. Whatever India does in Kashmir. arms and ammunition and means of transport. India has made Kashmir its colony. Pakistan came into being in northern India on the basis of Muslim majority there. On the basis of this rule. the maharaja of Kashmir and Indian rulers sent their forces to Kashmir and occupied a large part of it. The Hindus¶ party. It means that the Indian forces had already made a plan to enter Kashmir. When. Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah (late) had declared that trusting the Indians was his greatest blunder. India has been acting upon many plans to make its imperialistic occupation eternal.Freedom movement in the occupied Kashmir The Kashmiris. The UN passed resolution to solve the Kashmir issue. had to accept it. Jawahar Lal Nehru. it cannot win the hearts and minds of the people there because they are determined to get rid of the Indian 156 . Kashmir was annexed to India. In 1947. The Indian soldier checks the identity cards of every Kashmiri and hits him. Mountbatten ordered the Indian forces to enter Kashmir. There are 90 percent Muslims in Kashmir though their raja was a Hindu. This rule of freedom had been agreed upon at the time of partition. The maharaja had taken no decision even two months after the division of India. The first Prime Minister of India. the Indian rulers not only refused to give them the right of self-determination but also declared that Kashmir is a part and parcel of India. the Muslims rose against them. They admitted the right of self determination for the Kashmiris and decided that the Kashmiris would be given the right to decide their fate on the basis of adult franchise. The Kashmiri leaders demanded the Indian government to act upon the promises made to them in 1947. Even the British realized the natural necessity of division of India into two autonomous states. religion. Kashmir had to be a part of Pakistan. The Kashmir issue is in fact a part of an incomplete agenda of the division of India. He also behaves badly with the Kashmiri women. civilization and culture. But then. But when Kashmir was about to get freedom as a result of the struggle of the Kashmiris. India raised this issue in the United Nations. at the time of the creation of Pakistan. But the Indian rulers fail to understand that Kashmir has become a big headache for them. On the basis of geo-strategic position. The Muslims and their leader Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah insisted on the two-nation theory. Congress. on October 27. promised that the Kashmiris would be given the right of self-determination as per the UN resolutions. It was sure that the Indian forces would easily capture all of Kashmir. Then. But the Hindus and the British rulers conspired to create hurdles in Kashmir¶s annexation to Pakistan. believed that they were a part of Pakistan.

The Muslim sons of the soil and the Kashmiri youth protest on October 27 every year against the so-called annexation of Kashmir to India. Nothing can stop them. occupied Jammu and Kashmir. Even the state terrorism cannot control the situation there. per its illegal contract with the Dogra rulers on October 27 1947. It is known as Occupied Kashmir. There was no moral or legal justification for that. The Indian government. calling it µacross the border terrorism¶. This has annoyed India. The fact is that India itself is involved in terrorism against the Kashmiris. The whole world. But the Dogra rulers conspired to make Kashmir a slave of India. The 40 years¶ patience has forced the Kashmiris to take up arms. the UN and the Kashmiris themselves consider this occupation as illegal and immoral. 157 . India has forgotten the UN resolution. There is only one solution and that is the right of self-determination.occupation. The Indian government is trying to present it as terrorism at the international level. India has gotten entangled in it and cannot get a way out of it. The Muslims were in great majority in Jammu and Kashmir and so Kashmir should have been annexed to Pakistan. It is occupying a large part of Kashmir. The maharaja of Kashmir had conspired on that day with the Indians to annex Kashmir to India.

as it is a major flashpoint in the world. He asserted that UN Resolutions on Kashmir remained valid. The session was addressed by Asma Jahangir of Human Rights Commission of Pakistan and important personalities from Balochistan. in addition to participants from the host country and the conference was opened by former Indian premier IK Gujral. which was essential for the peace of entire region. He is perhaps the only British MP who believes that UN Resolutions are still valid. But he should take initiative and persuade international community to help resolve the dispute. the topic was ³Issue of Autonomy: Kashmir and Balochistan´. Pakistani delegation should not have attended the conference for bracketing Balochistan with Kashmir. On second day of the conference. 10-12. A 3-day conference organized on Jan. British Labor Member of the Parliament Sir Gerald Kaufman in his address on Kashmir Solidarity Day seminar held in London said that the issue of Kashmir will be on top of the agenda in his meeting with Prime Minister Gordon Brown. One does not understand how members of Pakistani delegation had agreed to the topic. Jammu and Kashmir Liberation leader Yasin Malik said that he felt no decision would ever be taken to implement a roadmap for peace in the State. January 11. 2010 by a consortium of Indian fora ended. and it is the responsibility of Britain to help resolve this issue. President Obama has many a time expressed his desire that the dispute between India and Pakistan should be resolved but has stayed short of playing an active role in resolving the dispute. which bracketed Balochistan with Kashmir. addressing Indo-Pak Conference on µroadmap for peace¶. which proved to be an exercise in futility. On 5th February 2010. after that he did not speak on the subject as to what transpired in his meeting with Prime Minister Gordon Brown. It has to be said that the Kashmir Dispute owes its origin to machinations of the governor general Lord Mountbatten. as it is unfinished part of the partition of the subcontinent. Anyhow. and would also strengthen world peace and stability.. i. He said that UK and US were concerned on the situation particularly for its bearings on stability and economy of Pakistan. Sir Gerald Kaufman also shared his painful experiences of his visits of Kashmir where he was able to observe worst kind of violations of rights of people. as the former is part of Pakistan. Prime Minister Gordon Brown¶s statement that the solution of the Kashmir issue is vital for world stability is indeed encouraging. the oppressed millions in Jammu and Kashmir would get their basic rights. and peaceful resolution of the issue was possible only through the implementation of these Resolutions. If the world powers including US and Britain take due interest in the matter and ensure implementation of the UN Resolutions on this issue.e. In January 2010. Participants were invited from Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir. But what transpired in the meeting was not known. whereas Kashmir is 158 .Resolution of Kashmir dispute The US and Britain often express concern over the looming threat of war between two nuclear states India and Pakistan.

sardars had neither done anything to develop Baloshistan. It goes without saying that tribalism is firmly rooted in Balochistan. which has left the province inexorably fragmented. Tribal group-ism has failed to integrate the state and enforce a national identity. They consider all natural resources of Balochistan their personal property and want to pocket all the profits and royalties. nor persuaded the central government to make development plans for their province. Britain should not allow leaders of the banned outfit Baloch Liberation Front (BLF) to issue instructions to the insurgents in Balochistan. keeping in view excellent relations between Britain and Pakistan. and ethnic and tribal identity is a potent force for both individuals and groups in Balochistan. From the statements and interviews of the scions of Akbar Bugti.a disputed territory. one can understand that the bone of contention between late Akbar Bugti and the federation arguably was that the former wanted an increase in gas royalty. The insurgency had lasted for four years from 1973 to 1977. Britain is also in the picture that states Kashmir is either in India or Pakistan. Balochistan and NWFP were neglected so far as their development is concerned. with the result that there exists deep polarization among different groups. Now Baloch sardars are peddling the idea the Balochistan was an independent entity in the plan for the partition of the subcontinent. The long dormant crisis had erupted into a brutal confrontation with the centre in 1973 when late Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had tried to establish educational institutions and construction of roads in Balochistan. Prime Minister Gordon Brown should look into the matter and. and it was after promulgation of Martial Law by late General Zia-ul-Haq that sedition cases were withdrawn against Baloch sardars. But this is also true that despite being part of the provincial governments. There is no denying that during British Raj and after independence. and Mir Hybyar Marri is in London. No human right activist cries over the atrocities inflicted on them by their feudal lords and sardars in their private jails. A couple of times Sardar Ataullah Mengal 159 . which is pending in the United Nations. and Pakistani leadership ± ruling and opposition parties ± should work in unison to frustrate the designs of the enemies of Pakistan. and the fate they met. should take a look at the history of the Balkans. and both are reported to have the backing and support from the enemies of Pakistan. he should take measures to get the headquarters of BLA closed. But those who have not been weaned from the poison of sham nationalism. In this backdrop. It is unfortunate that neither the British leadership nor the civil society in Pakistan consider it worthwhile to comment on what sardars have been doing to their people. and there was no concept of any independent state. and he is trying to draw political mileage from the contradictions between sardars and the government. CIA and Mossad are active in Balochistan and FATA to destabilize Pakistan. He should have known that Brahmadagh Bugti is ensconced in Afghanistan near President Karzai¶s palace. As regards Mian Nawaz Sharif¶s suggestion of holding talks with those who are not in Balochistan is intriguing. Each of these groups is based on different rules of social organization. It is too well known that RAW.

It is heartening to note that there is dawning of realization on the part of the central government as well as provinces. and he would accept any outside help to disintegrate the country. and in this regard.appeared in a television interview. Sardar Khair Bakhsh Marri and the scions of late Akbar Bugti should try to safeguard the interests of Baloch people but not through violence and bloodshed. Punjab and Sindh have sacrificed part of their share to Bahlochistan. Sardar Ataullah Mengal. and said that America did not pay any attention.

America and Britain.000 innocent Kashmiri Muslims and which separated East Pakistan in 1971.The Kashmir issue and peace Kapil Komireddi is an Indian journalist.´ According to that journalist. Even the Americans wonder how the aid of billions of dollars has been spent on strengthening the anti-India armed forces of Pakistan. The planner of the war policy J F R Jacob was a Jew. His articles are published in some leading newspapers of India. He continues that at the time of release of Hafiz Saeed. He says that it was the armed forces of a secular India which liberated the Bengalis from the madness of the Pakistani government though none of the commanders of the invading Indian army was a Hindu. there was no clear-cut justification for the creation of Pakistan in 1947. ³The recent bomb attacks of the Taliban have been pestering their Pakistani paymasters.´ Which Pakistani is not aware of the anti-Pakistan mentality of the Hindus? I don¶t know why our leaders tell us that Pakistan has no threat from India when India.´ He tells us that when he met Yahya Mujahid of Jamaat-ut-Dawa in Lahore. 161 . The demise of Pakistan is the wishful thinking of India and Israel and some enemies of Pakistan.000 soldiers to sit idle on its eastern border. His article entitled ³The Demise of Pakistan is Inevitable´ was published in Britain¶s famous newspaper µGuardian¶ of June 14. He says. The journalist thinks that Pakistan is a failed state where religious extremism. which has drenched hands with the blood of 90. 2009. ³Pakistan's fight against the Taliban is like a fixed game. He often writes on India¶s foreign policy matters. terrorism and atomic technology¶s illegal network are spreading. the Lahore High Court judges said that there was no mention of Al Qaeda or its world-wide terrorism in their books.

The myth that the Hindus and the Muslims could not live together would have been justifiable if India had become a Hindu state after the separation of Muslims. I firmly believe that with the grace of God. If the Pakistani government had been serious about eliminating the Taliban. According to the Indian journalist. is now attacking Pakistan's ideological frontiers. The last diatribe of this Hindu journalist in the Guardian was like this: ³Within the next 20 years Pakistan as we know it today will probably not exist. He believes that the Pakistan of 1947 came to an end in 1971. Pakistan will always go on shining like a star.

³The LTTE could not have grown without the support of successive state governments in India. The journalist said. and. He wrote that India¶s role in Tibet and Burma is not praise-worthy. said.´ The journalist writes that the Chief of Army Staff of Sri Lanka. The Pakistani nation. Sarath Fonsche. and by maligning our armed forces. who is all praise for a secular India.´ This journalist who predicts an imminent demise of Pakistan admitted a few months ago that the secularism of India can be explained according to the wishes of the Hindus. especially the Indian Muslims. Doesn¶t the entry and capture of the 50 arms laden mules into Pakistan prove that the Hindus and the Jews and America are behind all the trouble here? The Drone plane can see even the number plate of a car. who criticizes Pakistan and praises the secular India. ³Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.´ The Muslims reaped what they had sowed. Is that not a matter of double standards?´ The same journalist. entitled µIndia¶s Failing Secularism¶. They may also agree not to use atomic weapons. had strongly condemned India¶s intervention in Sri Lanka. The Hindu will never tolerate Pakistan because he is imbued with the idea of a greater India. Moreover. will destroy India¶s illmotivated designs. but India itself is silent about the Tamil Nadu politicians¶ involvement in Sri Lanka. This Hindu journalist. while pointing towards the Muslims.´ He added. wrote on December 28. ³India tells Pakistan to rein in the jihadi organizations in Pakistan. by fuelling internal rifts in the frontier. 2008 in a column entitled ³India¶s Double Standard´: ³According to the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. The Hindus butchered about 1000 Muslims in Gujrat in 2002. recently wrote that the story of Hindus¶ atrocities against the Muslims is quite long.´ It means no day passes when there are no linguistic riots. He says. but at the same time it sends her foreign minister to Sri Lanka to press on the government there to talk with the LTTE. According to the Indian journalist. there should be no double standards to end terrorism when the Indian leadership followed this double-standards rule when they helped LTTE in Sri Lanka. in Southern Punjab and in Karachi. while defending their crime. prejudices in the lives of the minorities. ³The hand that rises against the Hindus will be cut. rather it wants to weaken Pakistan from inside by separating us from the whole world. ³There are many frightening names of Muslims like Osama bin Laden. in Balochistan. India goes on repeating that it won¶t talk with the terrorists.India does not want a direct clash with Pakistan. According to this journalist. the Chief Minister Modi said. the international Jeans Information group has also confirmed this intervention.´ This proves India¶s intervention in the affairs of her neighbouring countries. This journalist who opposes the creation of Pakistan. Why couldn¶t it see the 50 mules and vehicles entering Pakistan from Afghanistan? Our leaders may hug and embrace the Indians and forget the UN resolutions. 2009. ³The religious minorities have always been worried since the partition because the economic development of India has not improved their miserable state. wrote an interesting article in the ³Guardian´ of April 5th. There is no doubt in the fact that there is a foreign hand behind our internal problems. the journalist says that Varun Gandhi. God willing. 162 . poverty.

And you know how secular the Indian government is. It is not that we have merely said that to the United Nations and to the people of Kashmir. Kuldip Nayyer should tell the Indian leadership that the Taliban movement would come to an end only when the Kashmir issue is resolved and Indian Muslims are treated well and America leaves Afghanistan. The Indian rulers know that the relationship with Pakistan cannot improve until this issue is resolved.´ After listening to the above mentioned facts as told by an Indian journalist Kapil Komireddi. The two nations fought three wars including the Kargil conflict because of this issue. No doubt Pakistan is in a state of war and is under attack from the inside and from the outside. ³India may break. Our Ministry of Information and every Pakistani embassy in other countries must watch closely this venomous propaganda against Pakistan. 163 . If someone is doubtful about India.´ God willing. Then the Afghan people would make their own government and peace would prevail in South Asia. All anti-Pakistan news and every article in foreign newspapers should be vehemently answered back. However sad we may feel about leaving.) and see for himself the mentality of µa greater India¶ and atrocities against the Kashmiri Muslims: ³I want to stress that it is only the people of Kashmir who can decide the future of Kashmir. he should read this statement of India¶s founding father Jawahar Lal Nehru (He said it on August 7th. you can easily imagine whether the Muslims¶ demand for a separate free homeland was right or wrong. it is our conviction and one that is borne out by the policy that we have pursued. «. the respectable journalist Kuldip Nayyer wrote in the ³Gulf News´ on July 4th : ³There are no two opinions about the fact that the Kashmir issue should be resolved.According to him. A former member of Indian assembly and a former high commissioner to UK. 1952 in Indian parliament. Every Pakistani should understand this conspiracy. such a day would never come when we would need Indian help to solve our internal problems. This jihad is our duty.´ Then Kuldip Nayyer gave this strange proposal: ³A better environment for the solution of the Kashmir issue can be created if both India and Pakistan join hands and attack the Taliban together. We are not going to impose ourselves on them at the point of the bayonet.´ The present leadership of India should understand that India will rise as a big economic power on the map of the world only when it gives the Indian Muslims the right of self determination in accordance with the UN resolutions and Nehru¶s promises. we are not going to stay against the wishes of the people.

Their future should be decided according to their wishes. There the Hindus in the referendum decided to join India. India has imposed a strict government in Kashmir. neutral observers can be appointed on the control line. India is in the habit of breaking promises about the solution of the Kashmir issue. The people of Kashmir are not a property which can be divided according to an inelastic formula. Things were not the same in Kashmir. Later. he said it in New York that across the border intervention was the cause of trouble in Kashmir. Therefore many arguments were put forward to avoid a referendum there. 164 . There were Muslim rulers in Hyderabad and Junagadh and the majority of the subjects there were Hindus. According to the rule of division. Czechoslovakia and America ± recognized it. But then Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru conspired and proposed a referendum in those states where the religious beliefs of the rulers were different from those of the majority. Torture. But Indian government is reluctant to accept this proposal. India¶s Sir Benegal Rama Rao openly declared and guaranteed in the 399th session of the Security Council on January 13th. Mr Nehru assured that the Kashmiri people themselves would decide the fate of Kashmir. British rulers and Hindus conspired to make the partition of Kashmir controversial. On January 5th. Indian leaders talk of negotiations but at the same time they hurl baseless accusation of Pakistani intervention in the Occupied Kashmir. On November 2nd. Columbia. If India is doubtful. or they live as an autonomous state. the rulers of the gubernatorial states were given three options: they annex with India. 1949. In 2004 Manmohan Singh and General Pervez Musharraf agreed on a UN platform that everything possible would be done to resolve the Kashmir issue.Backing away from Kashmir issue On August 14. Indian rulers knew that the people of Kashmir would never join India. 1947. Every sensible person of the world can understand that Indian leaders are not sincere about a dialogue with Pakistan. Negotiations were held with Pakistan and India and the five members of the commission ± Argentine. 1949 that his government would fully cooperate with the commission to resolve the Kashmir issue and would support the United Nations¶ efforts to establish peace in every place of the world. they annex with Pakistan. 1947. Our government has assured India many times that Pakistan is not intervening in the Occupied Kashmir.000 military and Paramilitary personnel are involved in the hateful violation of human rights. About 700. 2005 Manmohan Singh promised with Mir Waiz Omar Farooq (Chairman of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference in Indian Occupied Kashmir) that India would do everything possible to stop violations of human rights. The history of Kashmir is the history of broken promises. Then in 2005 the Indian Prime Minister told the UN that there should be no fresh talks about border demarcations. On September 5th. the UN Commission for India and Pakistan (UNCIP) passed a resolution and agreed that a neutral referendum would be held about Kashmir¶s annexation with India or Pakistan. Here the maharaja was a Hindu and the people were Muslims. Professor Joseph Karbil was the chairman of the commission. But then the real face of India vis-à-vis Kashmir was revealed.

Pakistan has always supported their struggle. They had already announced their annexation with Pakistan. ransom. The people of both Azad Kashmir and Occupied Kashmir should be included in all moves to resolve the Kashmir issue. The Kashmiri people are an important party in this issue. India should keep its promise. The majority there are the Muslims who want to annex with Pakistan on the basis of a two-nation theory. looting. The Kashmiris have been fighting for their genuine rights. But India never heeded to their wishes. Their participation is so vital in all negotiations. kidnapping. 165 . political and legal justification. illegal arrests and torturing the political opponents in a cruel way are so common there. Three wars have been fought between India and Pakistan. India is continuing military operations in Occupied Kashmir. Pakistan demands the right of self-determination for the Kashmiris. disappearance of prisoners. which has no moral.rape. But it declares that Kashmir is an integral part of India. Their struggle during the last 62 years proves that they want the right of self-determination for themselves.

Even then. He said it in a meeting in Islamabad that we want to maintain a friendly relationship with all the neighbouring countries. It occupied not only Hyderabad and Deccan but also Kashmir. It is a fact that the destructive wars between India and Pakistan could not help resolve the differences. Pakistan supported them.Obduracy on Kashmir Every government of Pakistan has always aspired for permanent peace. Pakistani rulers should watch closely Indian designs and Indo-American conspiracies. It was agreed in the schedule of partition that the states would be allowed to annex with either India or Pakistan. both India and America would be responsible for all the dangers to regional and world peace. He said that the question of Indian intervention in Balochistan would be raised. and to include the Kashmiri leadership in all parleys. But India never gave this right to any state. They should also strengthen their defence. If there are no talks between these two countries. So Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani has stressed again the importance of talks between India and Pakistan to resolve all the issues. If the Indian rulers did not change their attitude. Both the government and the people of Pakistan should keep in mind that we will have to offer more sacrifices for our safety and freedom. prosperity. and to resolve in particular the Kashmir issue according to the wishes of the Kashmiri people and the UN resolutions. progress and stability in the region and for a peaceful resolution of all the problems through negotiations with all the countries. It is also true that India is responsible for all these wars because India never accepted Pakistan. But the Kashmir issue is still unresolved. India violated it and declared Kashmir an integral part of India. especially India. not barriers. Rather these wars increased the differences and problems. It resulted in a cease fire under the supervision of the UN. So India went to the UN and promised it would give the people of Kashmir the right of self-determination. but India does not agree. and that the politicians should build bridges. it would encourage the terrorists and adversely affect the peace and stability of the region. It is sad to note that the American support of India has jeopardized the regional peace. When the Muslim majority of Kashmir started dissidence against India. problems and issues. 166 . and we should always be ready for that. Indian forces met defeat and destruction in Kashmir. It resulted in three destructive wars between the two countries. Pakistan has been trying to resolve this issue through talks and according to the wishes of the Kashmiri people. and if America did not stop patronizing India. It coerced the Kashmiri people.

Mental disorders and diseases are on the rise in the occupied valley because of the presence of Indian troops. Then why did India send thousands of more troops? India built an iron wall on the border and fixed search lights on them. India is vigilant on the border all the time. The Kashmiris themselves want freedom from India. The Indian forces kill and rape without compunction. Indian forces have turned all of Occupied Kashmir into a jail. So we can¶t even think of a decent civil society there. 167 . India cannot go on enslaving the Kashmiris for a long time. All the Kashmiris hope that the sun of the new day would bring a message of freedom for them.000 soldiers in Occupied Kashmir. They are thrown into boiling or freezing water and they are mercilessly beaten. The desire for freedom is there in spite of the Indian army¶s cruelties. Indian forces have been violating the human rights. As usual. Rape cases have been increasing. it would be considered as state terrorism. India has developed this bad habit of accusing Pakistan of intervention. People are being killed in fake encounters. They beat and kidnap the Kashmiris if they refuse to work for them.000 of strong Indian army is facing defeat. The state prisons are terrible. All the Pakistanis support the Kashmiris¶ right of self-determination. Last year more than 300 people were killed for not working for them. He argued that terrorists from Pakistan had started entering India again. the Indian Chief of armed forces has held Pakistan responsible for it. More than 200 people with mental disorders visit Sri Nagar¶s mental hospital daily. Jhelum and Poonch rivers until this day of freedom dawns. There were already about 700. More than 1500 women were kidnapped. Civilization will come to Occupied Kashmir only when peace prevails there.More forces in Occupied Kashmir India had called back a limited number of its forces from Occupied Kashmir in November 2004 as a confidence building measure. they have to struggle for it and make sacrifices and defeat the enemy. Kashmiris cannot be free until the last Indian soldier leaves. But now again it has sent there thousands more soldiers and has kept on an alert position two brigades of its forces. They are determined to get freedom. The freedom movement there is not a foreign element. After the cease fire of January 1st 1949. still they call it foreign intervention. the Kashmiris have realized that freedom won¶t be offered on a plate. The state of Jammu and Kashmir is not a spacious or dense area. Therefore. Blood would go on mixing with the waters of the Sind. The mujahideen¶s struggle is on the rise because of Indian atrocities. Indian forces have been coercing the Kashmiri people for the last 62 years. All sorts of atrocities are done against the Kashmiris. Outwardly it appears that the freedom fighters too are not in a great number. Not even a sparrow can enter India. It is an illegal occupation. Even then 700. If India tried to suppress the Kashmiris forcefully. Can there be a bigger terrorism? But no one sees the Indian army¶s terrorism. India itself is intervening. that is why India increased its forces in Occupied Kashmir to stop them from entering India.

Atrocities on the Kashmiris
India has been working on many plans for a permanent occupation of Occupied Kashmir. But the Indian rulers don¶t understand that they cannot swallow it. Whatever they do, they cannot win the hearts and minds of the Kashmiris. The Kashmiris want freedom from India at every cost. Nothing can stop them from their struggle for freedom. About seven hundred thousand Indian soldiers have been violating the human rights to suppress the freedom movement. RAW is fully supporting them. Their atrocities are heart rending. The mujahideen¶s struggle has exposed the claims of the puppet government there. The land of Occupied Kashmir is a victim of state terrorism of Indian forces. The Special Forces there have been committing every inhuman crime. They kill, shoot, rape, burn houses and force the people to migrate. The Indian government has established a special bureau (SSB) under the supervision of RAW. Its training camps are there in Jammu, Rajori, Mandhar and Poonch. Those who get a 6-week training there are given a free hand to murder and commit other inhuman crimes. Some of them are sent to Azad Kashmir for espionage and destruction. India is not ready to read what is writ on the wall. It has given no importance to world opinion and to the UN resolutions. India is involved in state terrorism but it accuses Pakistan and ISI. Its brainless answer to everything is across the border intervention. India must realize that this trend has never helped it; nor would it help it in the future. Truth will prevail. India must realize that a peaceful solution of the Kashmir issue would solve all the problems. This is the only solution to the problems of millions of people who are living in adverse conditions across India India has been committing crimes and atrocities in Occupied Kashmir. It has been killing 10 to 15 innocent Kashmiris daily. Their number has risen to about 100,000. Millions of the young people are being tortured in jails, thus crippling them mentally and physically. Children are being made orphans and women, widows. The Kashmiris will heave a sigh of relief if India calls back its army from there. So much blood has been shed in Kashmir. This issue must be resolved now.

The national hero of occupied Kashmir
Indian imperialists offered chief premiership dozens of times to the son of a labourer and a Syed. In response to such an offer, Syed Ali Gilani said, ³The office of the chief minister has no value against that grand mission for which I¶ve devoted myself. My motto and my mission of life cannot be sacrificed for this designation. The world must know that we are not a saleable commodity. India cannot buy us. Nor can we bow before any hegemonic power.´ The 80-year old ailing Syed Ali Gilani was imprisoned for two years under the Indian black laws. The pangs of imprisonment and torture didn¶t matter much to him. This leader of the freedom fighters was first arrested on August 28 1962 when he was quite young. The same thing is happening even in 2009. This son of the Syed, who is true to his word, has been carrying his own cross since long. He was handed over to different investigation institutions many times. Many cases were registered against him. But not even a bullet has been recovered from him. Even then the Indian imperialists are afraid of him and they even arrested him despite his severe illness. Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had declared Kashmir as the jugular vein of Pakistan. We have Islamic as well as strategic and geographical ties with Kashmir. We share a 700-mile long border with this state. The only road that connects it with the rest of the world is the Rawalpindi road. The inhabitants of Kashmir have Islamic, religious, cultural and social relationships with Pakistan. All the rivers from Kashmir flow towards Pakistan. Cool breezes come from Kashmir. Pakistan is now facing the water crisis. This crisis is gradually taking Pakistan and the Pakistanis towards death. India has started building illegal dams on three of the rivers that flow towards Pakistan. Pakistan¶s second biggest water-related plan ± Bhasha Dam ± is in jeopardy. Why? Our jugular vein is in the hands of the enemy. Not only that. The presence of enemy forces on the snow-laden tops of Kashmir has jeopardized even the defence of Pakistan. Syed Ali Gilani is Pakistan's advocate in Kashmir, whom the Pakistanis have forgotten, although Gilani says it clearly, ³Pakistan has a right on the waters of Kashmir and no one can deny this right.´ This son of a Syed is faithful to Pakistan even at the age of 80. But then, what are the Pakistanis doing? Did they ever think about that? It was expected that the Pakistani media and people would show a strong reaction against the unconstitutional and immoral arrest of Syed Ali Gilani. But his arrest could not make headlines in the Pakistani media. The dictator had taken a u-turn on Kashmir after which the graveyards of Shopian, Sri Nagar and Islamabad have been expanding. Even then there is silence in Pakistan. Even the literati have not written anything about this sad state of affairs in Kashmir despite the fact that Syed Ali Gilani is not only a freedom fighter but also a literary man. He was an editor of the most popular weekly ³Azaan´ of Kashmir, and the Pakistani media had declared his ³Roodad-e-Qafs´ as the best book of the year. Historians would declare Syed Ali Gilani as the greatest freedom loving leader of this era. Bhagat Singh, Raj Guru, Sukh Dev and Ashfaqullah occupy a high place in 169

the history of India. These freedom fighters wrote the history of freedom for India with their own blood. But when the historians of the Kashmir liberation movement make an impartial analysis, they will admit that the sons of mother India were betraying their own µhero¶. They broke those very rules and regulations on the basis of which they fought against the British. The freedom of Kashmir is the writing on the wall. If East and West Germany can unite, Kashmir too will become a part of Pakistan. The time will come when the student of history, while visiting the memorial places in Naini jail, Central jail Alahabad, Sri Nagar jail and all those jails where Syed Ali Gilani was kept, would ask the followers of Gandhi that, if the struggle of Bhagat Singh, Raj Guru, Sukh Dev and Ashfaqullah is part of their story of freedom, why they didn¶t grant liberation to Kashmir. He would declare Syed Ali Gilani as Nelson Mandela. But at the same time, he would regret the world conscience which grants a Nobel Prize to Nelson Mandela for his struggle against apartheid, but ignores the person who struggled for the right of self-determination according to the UN Charter and resolutions. Syed Ali Gilani says it clearly, ³I don¶t accept Kashmir¶s so-called annexation to India. I¶m a rebel to Indian imperialism, and I¶d kiss even the rope of the gallows for that.´

Occupation of Siachen
Siachen undoubtedly is a part of Pakistan because foreign mountain climbers, since long, have been going to the Siachen glacier via Skardu with a formal written permission from the government of Pakistan. In 1957, a team from the Imperial Defence College, London, went to Siachen with the permission of the Pakistani government. In 1960-61, Australian climbers went there via Khaplu. In 1962, 1967 and 1969, the Indian forces suddenly occupied Siachen and it became a controversial place. The Pakistani government lodged a strong protest with India when it opened this controversial place for tourism. This opening of Siachen for tourism would be detrimental because Indian occupation of Siachen is illegal. Siachen glacier is in the east of Baltistan. It is 46 miles long and 6166 meters high. It is 30 miles from the Pak-China border, inside Pakistan. In 1984 Indian forces suddenly occupied a part of Siachen. Troops of both the countries are facing each other. According to the SinoPak contract of 1962, Pakistan¶s control line is shown from the Korakoram Pass in the east, including Siachen. India never objected to it. The main cause of occupation of Siachen is to keep an eye on Sino-Pak relations via Shahrah-e-Raisham and control it if it is needed. After Siachen, India also tried to occupy the tops of Kargil but failed due to the timely action of the Pakistani forces. India insists that the present position of the troops be determined, whereas Pakistan insists that that would mean amendment to the line of control, which was determined in the Simla Accord. This amendment is a political problem not a technical one. So it should be resolved. The line according to the Simla Accord ended where the glacier started because the glacier is in that part which is towards Pakistan. On the failure of the Siachen parleys, the BBC representative asked India¶s former Chief of Army Staff VP Malk, how would there be an improvement in relations when on one hand his government talks of confidence-building measures and, on the other hand, has such a strict attitude about Siachen. VP Malk could give no answer. According to an Indian journalist, India spends two million dollars daily on Siachen. While talking about Siachen, an Indian officer said that those who have served on Siachen, collectively believe that India is in a strange situation. They could have avoided being entangled in this cold hell, but due to lack of insight on the part of the Indian politicians and senior commanders, the troops of both the countries are entangled in a useless war. It is a cancer for India. Declaring Siachen as a nonmilitary area or withdrawal of troops of both the countries is in India¶s interest, but India wants to delay it. The Kashmir issue is the main cause of all the wars between India and Pakistan. Though Siachen is an unpopulated snow capped piece of land, yet India has no right to occupy it because it is a part of Pakistan. It is a violation of international as well as moral laws. On the other hand, Kashmir is a paradise-like valley where millions of people live. It has become hell because of India¶s obduracy. Is there any inhuman crime which India has not committed on the majority of its people? About 100,000 171

Self-defence is the law of nature. thousands of women have been raped and millions of the people have been made homeless.

Jhelum and Indus rivers. India is not abiding by the rules ± probably because it sees itself as a power that is somehow above regulations. Pakistan enjoys exclusive rights to the volumes generated by the Chenab. This attitude has harmed its credentials not only in Pakistan but also in other SAARC countries as well. India is seen as a regional bully throughout SAARC. There is no shortage of well-meaning. India could build run-of-river hydropower projects and utilize 2. These dams would be built by cutting in the occupied Kashmir which would affect rainfall in Pakistan. India is not only building projects on Chenab but was also building 240MW Uri Power Project and 330MW Kishan Ganga Power Project on the Jhelum River. But now India is usurping water supplies that rightfully belong to us under the terms of the 1960 Indus Waters Treaty. But even they must accept that New Delhi can be most intransigent when it comes to issues that Pakistan rightly sees as a matter of life and death. India is required by law to inform Pakistan six months in advance if work is to commence on diverting or stalling waters covered under the 1960 agreement. The Pakistan government would take up the issue of proposed construction of four dams by India. True. it would be taken up at the top government-to-government level. That did not happen and it is up to the comity of nations to ensure that India¶s transgression is stopped dead in its tracks. 1.

When India tried to harm Pakistan¶s agriculture by stopping water from the Sind river in 1951. declared the construction of this 240-megawatt Orhi 11 project as serious for Pakistan.

According to this accord. the danger of war between the two countries increased. the water crisis between the two countries became serious. yet the construction of a new dam is dangerous. Though India has stopped work on Wooler Barrage. India continued making Pakistan a barren land and also provided lesser water than the agreement. Jhelum and Sind.

India starts a new 177 . India has started work on its Morha plan of 9 megawatt on the Jhelum River in Occupied Kashmir. It also affected the production of electricity of Mangla Dam because of a shortage of water there. Moreover. First India tried to give a big blow to Pakistan¶s agriculture by building the Wooler Barrage in 1994. India would have no right on the water of these rivers. India is also using more than its permitted water share through Ranbir and Partab canals. Pakistan raised the issue of the one million acre land in front of the boundary commission. India would not build any dam or barrage on all these three western rivers namely Chenab. leaving West Pakistan¶s agriculture at the mercy of India. After the construction of this dam. the Radcliffe Award handed over two important head works ± Madhopur and Ferozepur ± to India. This project was started in 1993 but India stopped work due to a full-fledged protest from Pakistan. It was agreed that India would use the water of the Ravi. violating the Indus Waters Treaty. India can cause floods in Pakistan whenever it wants. India also is working on a project of a 105megawatt hydro power on lower Jhelum.

It does not show Pakistan the designs of the dam. It is high time India cooperated with Pakistan and provided Pakistan¶s share of water. The most important issue however between the two countries is the issue of Kashmir. nor does it allow Pakistan to inspect it. Wooler Barrage and media war. In short. 178 .issue every now and then. as it did in the case of the Kashmir issue. Then the issue of the division of water started.

Baglihar dam
According to the puppet chief minister of Occupied Kashmir, Ghulam Nabi Azad, 450 megawatt electricity production in Baglihar Dam would start in June. The Indian government has been building many dams in Occupied Kashmir. All the rivers, canals and water channels which flow towards Pakistan are being closed. India aims at making Pakistan a desert like Somalia and Ethiopia. Pakistan is against the construction of Baglihar Dam which is being built on the river Chenab in the Doda district in Occupied Kashmir because this dam, which will cost Rs 4000 crore and produce 450 megawatt electricity is a violation of the Indus Waters Treaty. This will create more problems for Pakistan which has already been facing water shortage. India is building this dam despite many protests by Pakistan. Pakistan wanted to solve this problem seriously and sincerely but India is using the delaying techniques. When this problem was not solved through mutual talks, Pakistan, in the light of the Accord¶s article no. 91, raised this matter before the World Bank. Pakistan had no other option because of India¶s obduracy. Pakistan wants no favors from India; it only wants to stop India from taking an illegal action. Pakistan has many reservations and apprehensions about the construction of Baglihar Dam, about its design, height and its capacity to store water. Its height is 144.5 meters, its length on top is 317 meters and it can store 15 billion cubic meter water. According to the Indus Basin Accord 1960, no dam can be built to stop the water of the Chenab River in Kashmir. But India continued building dams despite Pakistan¶s protests. Pakistan accepted the representative of the World Bank as an arbitrator. This arbitrator, after hearing Pakistan¶s objections, initially stated that Pakistan was right, but then he changed his opinion and said that India was right. Indian experts had already been saying that all the arbitrators of World Bank would decide in favor of India. The World Bank¶s neutral expert Professor Raymond Lafeeti reported that the Biglihar Dam issue cannot be resolved because they did not accept Pakistan¶s stand that the construction of this dam was a violation of the SindTas Accord of 1960. The neutral expert said the height of Baglihar Dam was too much above the water level and India would increase its water level thus resulting in lesser water for Pakistan. Experts believe that after the construction of the Baglihar Dam, Pakistan would be deprived of 7000 cusec water every day and that would be a big loss to Pakistan. Pakistan informed India about its losses but India rejected our protest with this argument that it did not rain much during the last two years and that water shortage was not due to the construction of Baglihar Dam. After the completion of this dam, daily shortage of water during the rabi season would be from seven to eight thousand cusecs. Water from Tarbela and Mangla dams would be supplied for irrigation of wheat crops. The construction of Baglihar Dam would cause shortage of water in Tarbela and Mangla. Thus, enough water won¶t be provided to wheat crops in rabi. It will decrease per acre production of wheat. The design of Baglihar Dam is such that it would slow the natural flow of the Chenab River. According to the SindTas Accord, India has no legal right to stop the flow of the Chenab River. 179

Water hegemony
During the last couple of years, confrontation between India and Pakistan over the construction of Baglihar dam have created much bitterness between the two countries. Both countries already have had a bitter dispute over the Indus water. A similar situation was faced by Bangladesh after the construction of a canal by India, diverting the water of river Brahmaputra. According to Karl Marx, economic interests dictate the course of history. If we grill this statement with regards to Pakistan and India, it would be more appropriate to say that the water decides the true mechanism of any state¶s survival and political profile. Any water controversy between India and Pakistan indicates lack of monitoring and implementation of the Indus Waters Treaty 1960 in its letter and spirit. Water is a gift from Almighty Allah and the symbol of life. The scarcity of water means strangulation and drought, resulting into a chain reaction leading to one problem after the other: For instance, land erosion, shortage of agricultural products, price hike, unemployment, law and order situation, chaos and anarchy and its ultimate product violence breeding more violence. There is no concept of plantation without water. Irrigation is the life-line of plants. More than 70 percent of Pakistan economy is based on agriculture. The same situation is faced by other South Asian states like Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Bhutan. It means the mainstay of survival of both rivals ± Pakistan and India ±± rests on the availability of water. Even though the two countries do not fight against each other in the battlefield, water blockade by one state can defeat the other. During the last couple of years, confrontation between India and Pakistan over the construction of Baglihar dam created much bitterness between the two countries. Both countries already have had a bitter dispute over the Indus water. A similar situation was faced by Bangladesh after the construction of a canal by India, to divert the water of river Brahmaputra. Tension also continues between India and Nepal, India and China ± that might one day take a serious turn, as all the entities claim their share of water from the river water passing through their respective territories. Apart from the survival, the water of India and Pakistan also decides their respective prowess to twist the arms or brow beat its rival. When Pakistan raised its voice against hegemonic and expansionist designs, nobody bothered to heed. But now, when the water crisis has become the matter of life and death, its policies to choke the water resources by building dams such as Dulhasti, Dugar, Gondhala, Reoli/Dugli, Sach-Khas, Tandi, Teling Kirthal hydropower projects, besides Baglihar dam on Chenab further aggravates Pakistan¶s position. According to reports, India has also commenced its projects like Uri-I and Uri-2, on the same river. According to the Indian prime Minister there are actually 67 projects, nineteen out of which have already been completed. 180

According to John Briscoe and Usman Qamar who compiled their book titled ³Pakistan¶s Water Economy ± Running Dry´, Pakistan is one of the world¶s most arid countries, with an average rainfall of under 240mm a year. Its population and the economy are heavily dependent on an annual influx into the Indus river system (Including the Indus, Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi) Beas, and Sutlej rivers) of about 180 billion cubic meters of water that emanates from the neighbouring countries and is mostly derived from the snow that melts in the Himalayas. The first challenge arose when the partition of the Indo-Pak subcontinent severed the irrigated heartland of Punjab from the life giving waters of the Ravi, Beas and Sutlej rivers. In the unprecedented triumph of water diplomacy, Pakistani engineers, together with their Indian counterparts and the World Bank, negotiated the Indus Waters Treaty giving Pakistan the right in perpetuity to the waters of Indus, Jhelum and Chenab rivers, which comprise 75 percent of the flow of the whole Indus system. Experts on the water division surveys divide this region into three distinct plains; the Indus valley (mostly in Pakistan), the Punjab valley (divided between India and Pakistan including Haryana plains) and the Middle and Lower Ganga valley. By another definition, the Indo-Gangetic Plain is divided into two drainage basins; the eastern part consists of the Ganga-Brahmaputra drainage systems and Delhi Ridge. These regional distinctions are based primarily on the availability of water. In terms of availability of water, the Indian reservoir of water that it received through Brahmaputra and Ganga is much bigger than the share Pakistan received under the Indus Waters Treaty. Pakistan objected to the construction of the dams on the Indus and Chenab in Jammu and Kashmir which is part of the large dispute over water sharing of the Indus River and its tributaries. Will the whole South Asia die of hunger and lack of the necessities of life: food primarily, while Indian hegemonic and expansionist attitude will go on unrestricted?

Hydro power projects on Chenab
India has planned to build four hydro power projects on the Chenab River. They would produce 1180 megawatt electricity. During the last four decades, India not only continued its efforts to make Pakistan a barren land but also provided lesser water than it had agreed on. Moreover, India created more problems for Pakistan by not providing timely information about the floods during the monsoon. India has also started construction of a controversial Baglihar Dam on the Chenab River, in violation of the Sind-Tas Accord. Pakistan raised this issue in the World Bank but India did not act upon its decision too. India built the Biglihar Dam in spite of the protests from Pakistan. Pakistan appealed to the World Bank but India continued violating the accord. It wants to hit hard our agricultural economy by building Baglihar Dam and Gangakishan Dam. Due to the Indus Waters Treaty, India not only dried the three rivers of Pakistan but also strengthened its hold on Occupied Kashmir by occupying the sources of the rivers. India is so active in stopping the flow of water into Pakistan that it is closing the rivers starting from Occupied Kashmir and also using every influence to compel Afghanistan to build a dam on the Kabul river so that the Warsik hydro power house near Peshawar should stop working and Pakistan should be deprived not only of water but also of electricity. India has made the Baglihar Dam a controversial issue as it had made the Wooler Barrage. The Baglihar Dam has been completed on the Chenab River in the Chanderkot area of the Doda District of Occupied Kashmir, 150 km from Jammu. It would produce 450 megawatt electricity. It has caused a shortage of 10,000 cusec water daily. It amounts to 250,000 cusecs in one season. The Baglihar Dam is an irredeemable loss for our country. Its construction is a big shock to the Pakistani nation. It would cause an immense loss to the Pakistani agriculture and economy. India has already occupied the rivers of the Punjab. The construction of dams in Occupied Kashmir has caused shortage of 7000 to 8000 cusecs of water daily. Water from Tarbela and Mangla is provided for wheat crops in Pakistan. There is also a shortage of water in Tarbela and Mangla due to these dams. Thus, enough water would not be supplied to wheat crops in Rabi, and per acre production of wheat would decrease.

182

in accordance with the Sind-Tas Accord. should use its influence to stop the Afghan government from constructing this dam. If India succeeds in its efforts. The length of the Kabul River is about 700 kilometres. India has already taken some practical steps in that direction. As a result.Dam on Kabul River Many rivers of all sizes in the eastern part of Afghanistan fall into the Kabul River in Pakistan and thus they provide some extra water to it. If a dam is built on this river. Water from both the Sind River and the Kabul river can be stored in the Kalabagh Dam. The Pakistan government needs to contact the Afghan government to inspect the site of the dam and. But there is no such contract with the Afghan government. 183 . The Indian government has made this large-hearted offer to Afghanistan that it would provide not only technical know-how and expert services but also a large amount of three billion dollars to construct a big dam on the Kabul River. We badly need water from the Kabul River to fill the Kalabagh Dam. it would deprive millions of acres of agricultural land of Pakistan of water from the Kabul River. the US ambassador in Afghanistan has offered the Afghan minister for water and electricity the US aid to build a mega dam on the Kabul River at Dromund. under a sort of silent diplomacy. Both India and Pakistan. That is why they. Similarly. near Jalalabad. The aim of building a dam on the Kabul River is to deprive Pakistan of a large amount of water and to hamper Pakistan¶s efforts to achieve its agricultural targets of self sufficiency. under the supervision of the Indian experts. It puts forward such proposals to the Kabul administration which outwardly are beneficial to the Afghan people but they in fact aim at harming Pakistan. Work has started on this plan too. The shortage of water in the Kabul River would adversely affect the Warsik Dam which gets water from that river. to change its direction towards the Imberi desert to make it irrigable. Pakistan would be deprived of three fourth water of the Konar River. the proposed Indo-US sponsored Dromund Dam on the Kabul River would stop a large amount of water from flowing into Pakistan. It flows through the Peshawar district and falls into the Sind River near Attock. too. as they did in the Baglihar Dam case. the dam on the Kabul River would hit hard the Kalabagh Dam project. It enters Pakistan north of the Khyber Pass after a long journey through the city of Kabul. India exploits this situation. As a result of Indian conspiracies. if needed. easily feel inclined to antiPakistan plans. The water experts of Pakistan are seriously worried because Pakistan uses the clear drinkable water of the Kabul River. The present rulers after the Taliban naturally consider themselves to be nearer to India. can appeal to the World Bank for arbitration. The Kabul River starts its journey from Pakistan¶s Chitral valley and enters into Afghanistan about 45 km west of Kabul. The provincial government of Nangarhar planned to construct a long dam on the Kunar River. 560 kilometres of it is in Afghanistan and 140 kilometres is in Pakistan.

The big powers at last decided to separate East Pakistan and India made it Bangladesh. maligned Pakistan. Indian diplomats openly distributed money among the journalists and literati in Dhaka¶s press club and instigated them against West Pakistan.

yet the Bangladesh of today is a country of Islamic identity in every aspect. These girls are recruited on the basis of their beauty. physical features and attraction and not on the basis of their education and qualifications. 600 girls (of 20 years) of infidel and irreligious families are provided to these traitors. If both the countries of South Asia cannot unite again. the Afghan government has established an institution where Uzbek.

Rather it created and strengthened movements for a separate homeland in East Punjab. nor is it ignorant about India¶s designs.body of Shaikh Mujib-ur-Rahman could not be removed from the stairs of the president house for hours. are behind all the recent terrorist attacks in many cities of Pakistan. yet the fact is India never benefited from the creation of Bangladesh. India wants no peace for Afghanistan because only then will it be able to continue using the Afghan tribes there to spread hatred and animosity against Pakistan. The only aim of opening the Indian consulate in Kandahar is to intervene 187 . After training they are being sent to different parts of Pakistan. and they are involved in terrorism and destruction in Pakistan for money. The Indian secret agency RAW is believed to be behind the murder of shias and sunnis there. India again opened its embassy in Kandahar. not Kandahar. Indian trade and arrival and the departure of the Indian citizens and diplomats is through Jalalabad. especially to Waziristan and Balochistan. from where they are committing terrorism against Pakistan. a new wave of destruction and terrorism started in Balochistan. Tamil Nado and in more than twenty other regions. Indira Gandhi was very proud on the breaking of Pakistan. After that. After the arrival of America in Afghanistan. The Bangladeshi Muslim is not less Islamic. especially RAW. Some members of the Indian and Afghan forces are involved in internal and external attacks on Pakistan with a view to establishing India¶s dominance in the region. India has bought the services of some so called jihadis in Afghanistan and Pakistan. India also opened her consulates at different places near Pakistan¶s borders. India has established at least 18 training camps in Afghanistan. All the members of his family except Hasina Wajid who was out of the country at that time were killed. Sikkim. Pakistan was divided into two and East Pakistan became Bangladesh. At the same time. for terrorism and destruction. on the instigation of India. the presence of this consulate in that city has no justification. where terrorists are being trained under the supervision of RAW. Foreigners were arrested in connection with suicide attacks on imam bargahs. This refutes Indira Gandhi¶s claim that she had drowned the two-nation theory in the Gulf of Bengal. they should at least agree on a confederation which would be encouraging for Indian Muslims too. Outwardly Indira Gandhi succeeded. We should be realistic and fulfill our dream in the vaster interests of the Muslim ummah. Beautiful girls of other countries are provided for sexual satisfaction of these people in Kabul every sixth month. Tajik and some self-exiled Pakistani traitors are being trained. Our investigation departments have concluded that Indian secret agencies. Otherwise. but we need not be disappointed about Pakistan ideology.

India has been dreaming of occupying all the countries of South Asia. India has appointed 300 commandos in Kandahar. Apart from its embassy in Kabul. India can use it to blackmail the Afghan government and use it against Pakistan. The Afghan territory is being used against Pakistan. All the antiPakistan planning. The world should keep in mind this heinous character of India. Jalalabad. The Afghan and Balochistan¶s borders are common and weapons are provided to the Baloch Liberation Front through this way. especially about terrorism in Balochistan and tribal areas. Indian consulates there are in fact camps of terrorism. Jalalabad and Kabul for the safety of Indian citizens. military and intelligence staff there. Bhutan. Nepal and Sri Lanka. Mazar Sharif and Herat and they are big centres of antiPakistan activities.in Balochistan and do terrorist activities there. India has increased the number of its diplomatic. is done there. Ask your Muslim brethren how treacherously India treated them. In fact India is using their safety as a pretext to do terrorism in Balochistan with the compliance of the Afghan government. its consulates are there in Kandahar. which it revealed in Bangladesh. With the compliance of Afghanistan. 188 . The recently established Indian camp at Koshila Jadeed north of Kabul is very important.

It is a fact that it is America which has given India the task of rebuilding Afghanistan. Mazar Sharif and Herat are the biggest centers of anti-Pakistan activities. An institution has been established in Afghanistan with the cooperation of RAW. train them and then send them to Pakistan for bomb explosions and suicide attacks. isn¶t it evident then that America is patronizing India? The Indian secret agency RAW is busy in activities of terrorism in Pakistan. The name of the Taliban is being used when in fact the real actors are the anti-Pakistan forces. There are agents of RAW in the Indian consulates in Kandahar and Jalalabad. India has long since given its RAW agents the task of spreading restlessness. The masterminds of RAW brainwash the suicide bombers. are being planned in Indian consulates. Anti-Pakistan activities in our country. The land of Afghanistan is being used against Pakistan. which India wants to use to destabilize Pakistan and to establish its own role of a policeman. The biggest hand is that of India which thinks that creating problems for Pakistan is its first and foremost duty. Criminals get there training from Indian terrorists. Jalalabad. Indian consulates in Kandahar. Even its friendly countries are not spared from Indian conspiracies and evil designs. America has now told India to close its consulate in Jalalabad because of Pakistan¶s complaints about it. How is it possible that America is not aware of India¶s anti-Pakistan activities in Afghanistan? If India is involved in activities against Pakistan when America is present in Afghanistan. The real face of these players has been exposed. The military leadership has proved that India is involved in terrorism in Waziristan and Balochistan and RAW has been helping the extremists. These very forces are behind terrorism that is happening in the name of Taliban. instability and terrorism. They are being taught languages of Pakistan¶s tribal areas so that they can easily mix with the people here. The agents of RAW are being trained in the Mazar Sharif area of Afghanistan and then they are being sent to Pakistan. Strange that America has requested India to close one of its 15 consulates! Will closure of one consulate only stop terrorism here? Are the other consulates playing a gentle role? America perhaps cannot answer these questions. RAW¶s training camps and Indian consulates were opened at many places in 189 . The American observers have stressed upon their government to press upon Afghanistan to close the training camps of the RAW. who enter Pakistan via Torkham and Chaman for terrorism which is detrimental for both Pakistan and America.India¶s role in terrorism The incidences of terrorism from Waziristan to Balochistan prove that anti-Pakistan forces have been destabilizing our country for their own nefarious ends. especially in Balochistan and tribal areas. which is a centre of destructive activities in Pakistan. Our democratic and military leadership have said it time and time again that there is a foreign hand behind all these incidents. Apart from its embassy in Kabul.

On the other hand. which has long-lasting religious. A large number of paramilitary forces and black cat commandos have reached Afghanistan for the safety of India¶s Border Road Organization which has been making and expanding roads there. 190 . which adversely affects the peace here. These smugglers bring with them weapons. Every arrangement has been done for their safety. RAW is responsible for their deaths. No Pakistani can kill Chinese people. regional. Some American analysts have been crying about a possibility of Pakistan¶s atomic weapons going into the hands of terrorists. stoned. therefore their access to atomic weapons is not possible. suddenly became a stranger. Pakistan. After getting training from RAW in Afghanistan.Afghanistan. looted and burned. There is strong evidence of India¶s involvement in Balochistan and in the frontier province. They all forgot Pakistan¶s hospitality. But India has become everything to them. The Chinese experts have been working in different institutions of Pakistan. They are being targeted. China¶s role in Pakistan¶s progress is tremendous. the suicide bombers enter Pakistan. America should give Pakistan every possible help because Pakistan has been fighting this war against terrorists and has become a victim of terrorism. national. sympathies and magnanimity. Drug traffickers also enter Pakistan with them. currency notes and forbidden anti-Pakistan and anti-Islam literature. We cannot even imagine that a Pakistani can ever target the citizens of that great friendly country. The terrorists have been eliminated in the tribal areas. Pakistani consulates were attacked. geographical and political relationships with Afghanistan. The Chinese citizens were targeted in Gawader and at Gomal dam. India has been covertly increasing its forces in Afghanistan. But it is impossible. Such activities aim at straining our friendship. Nor do they have planes and aircrafts to transport and drop these weapons.

The process of their economic and intellectual progress could not start because of a vacuum of leadership among the middle class Muslims. Some time-serving elements exploited this situation and dominated the Muslims. Ram Chander Guha says that the Indo-Pakistan enmity and bitterness and the treatment of the minorities in Pakistan also adversely affected the Indian Muslims and they remained backward. One cause of this vacuum of leadership among the Muslims was the fact that the government officers. The number of the Muslims is comparatively high among them. He adds that the Muslims were affected most because of poverty and a lack of welfare policies. The population of Muslims in Behar in the north is more than 10 million. There are 31 % of Muslims in Uttar Pradesh which is one of those provinces that have a greater number of populations. Another historian. That is why the Muslims could not get their share in politics.

It has already proved a collaborator in the terrorism incidents and for terrorists in Pakistan. An attempt is made to mislead the people by saying that America is Pakistan's trustworthy friend and wants to maintain pleasant relations with India as well. which will be a big step towards equipping the Indian army with the latest weapons. America and India have recently colluded in a big defence agreement with mutual willingness. America will give the latest technology.Indo-US defence pact It is a saying of Hazrat Ali (RA): "Your enemy's friend is your enemy. It means if (God forbid) there is a war between India and Pakistan. Whereas. which has not accepted us till now and remains busy in conspiracies for weakening our roots. 167 billion and 300 million. Under the agreement. It is not only generously providing atomic reactors to India but also has given 126 bomber jets to the country which has already a big reservoir of Mirage. America will support India while Pakistan is fully relying on America. India has established consulates along the border belt of Pakistan whose majority of officials consists of the RAW agents. The Indian defence budget has reached Rs 14 trillion and 17 billion after a recent increase of Rs three trillion. Our rulers have always been ignoring the strategic partnership of America and India. America backtracked from the promise of giving F-16 jets in the 90s and refused to return the received money as well. as 204 .´ This saying is applicable to the Indo-US friendship. Through America's civil atomic cooperation agreement with India and unjustified pressure on Pakistan after recent Mumbai attacks. India is also a strong defence ally of America. but its friend America. America is inking defence pacts with our enemy. the reality has been clarified that in fact America is a friend of India. America is our friend but it is not ready to give us the drone technology. Pakistan was not included in the American Foreign Minister Hillary Clinton's tour to South Asia. money and training to terrorists. Our real enemy is not India. Under the defence pact. satellite and two atomic reactors will be provided to India so that India could practically display its biased mentality. America terms Pakistan its frontline ally and friend that is fighting its war in the country under pressure from America: another side of the picture depicts some other scene. which was maintained between India and Pakistan in the past. It has always been using Pakistan for its objectives. America is showing partiality towards India as it wants to make the latter a monopolist in the region in future. which we will use for it. it had promised to give a few F-16 jets to Pakistan for its need and continued to postpone the matter. weapons and atomic parts to India. 126 fighter jets. India is not only involved in a rebellion in Swat and Waziristan but also collaborating in the terrorist attacks in the God-given country. It was also a signal to the fact that America considers the equilibrium. During the rule of General Musharaf. India has provided huge amount of weapons. MIG and other fighter jets.

the country has been for the past many decades sitting on the UNSC resolutions. The reforms package. and in this particular case there¶s many a slip betwixt the cup and the lip. On the other side.

Moreover. 205 . has open enmity and difficult relations with all neighbouring countries and is disposed to pick up quarrels at the slightest of provocations and brandish its nuclear sword to intimate adversaries be it China or Pakistan. defence and survival. He has no authority to speak on behalf of the UN. would remain a dream unless it peacefully settles disputes with neighbouring countries and sets its own house in order." Pakistan has gained no benefit from the friendship of America. On the one hand. by contrast. Pakistan has caused unlimited loss to itself in the American war and the future conditions also seem dangerous. which envisions the enlargement of the body is a bone of contention amongst the member states and there is little possibility of a consensus in near future. even with the US promised support. The concern about India¶s zeal to gatecrash into the UNSC. After the 9/11. a tool has come into the hands of India in the form of ongoing war against terrorism. Foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi was right in saying that a permanent UN Security Council seat for India would upset the balance of power in South Asia. they should not delay in the formulation of the new effective national policy after discussing the role of America. it must not be forgotten that there are other promising contenders like Japan. with Afghanistan after inventing a new term "AfPak". Allah Almighty has clearly said in the Holy Quran: "Oh believers! Do not make the Christians and Jews your friends and some of them are friends of some others. Another factor that would ultimately thwart New Delhi¶s bid is the fact that expansion of the UNSC is a long-drawn process. calling for a solution of the Kashmir dispute through a plebiscite held under UN auspices. So far as the question of regional representation on the basis of population and economic strength goes. Our rulers should consult the elected representatives after convening a special meeting of the parliament in this regard. Its accession to the UN Security Council. was to a certain extent allayed by China¶s opposition on this count. America has practically linked the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. At the same time. What is the justification for ignoring steps taken by the well-wisher and friend of our first enemy? They are a threat to our Islamic liberties. we have China as a permanent member. President Obama¶s support for India¶s seat was only a deceptive move to curry the favour of the Indians. India. endorsed by the US. America is accepting the Indian stance and cooperation happily for the accomplishment of its anti-Islam crusade agenda.unimportant. Most important of all. a nuclear state. and is mired in pervasive poverty. Its atrocities in Held Kashmir are a matter of record of the bodies of the UN. India has gained superiority in every respect with regard to America's regional priorities. which is being used in propaganda against Pakistan. Germany and Brazil whose bid for a permanent slot deserves to be given precedence. It is struggling to overcome at least 13 insurgencies within.

They cannot stand nuclear capability of an Islamic state. Israel says that it reserves the right to sabotaging and operating within any other country. the instigation of the Israeli ambassador to attack Pakistan indicates that Israeli-Indian hobnobbing is a security threat to Pakistan. These non-signatory countries include Pakistan. Israeli secret agency Mossad and the Indian RAW have established an organized and coordinated mutual network. but India remained unmoved.The Indo-Israel designs Israel has recently suggested opening an international nuclear market for those countries that have not rectified NPT. India explicitly made an unsuccessful move to implicate secret agency of Pakistan in Mumbai bomb blasts. Prior to this. from the international nuclear market. Despite clarification and clear rebuttal the Indian government was shamelessly stubborn to its assertions. It also claims to have the right to intervene in any country where it thinks there are terrorist camps. It tries to link every internal terrorist activity with Pakistan. Pakistan went to extents to make it happen. Israel thinks that only India and itself can benefit from the international nuclear market. India and Israel. It has always dreamt of Akhand Bharat. The Pakistani atomic program is a nightmare not only for India and Israel but also for other western countries. Israel had actively participated for US-India nuclear agreement and now wants an open market for India that has never accepted the existence of Pakistan. When militant activities of Mujahidin accentuated in occupied Kashmir to fail the Indian army. uranium and fuel. India and Israel because of their non-signatory status on NPT. These three countries cannot purchase atomic reactor. Israeli commandos reached the occupied territory to train and assist the Indian army. There were reports of repeating rapid operations in the 1990¶s by Israel that it had committed against Iraqi installations. In this scenario. etc. India has many a time threatened Pakistan to chase within its own territories? It was thought that hostility between the two countries will lessen after the IndoPak dialogue. 206 . The similar conspiracy was unfolded in 1988 that compelled Pakistan to declare its nuclear status. That¶s why there has been time and time again scheming for depriving us of nuclear capability through threats of attacking our nuclear installations and pressure tactics. 45-membered nuclear supplier countries have put a ban on nuclear trade with Pakistan.

The Eero missile is yet another important military equipment supplied by Israel to India. They are also ready to train more Indian pilots in Israel. India has purchased arms from Israel to the tune of 5 billion dollars for the last 5 years. Americans were quite apprehensive of the Iraqi ballistic missiles. That¶s why despite spelling charms of peace by tongue they are busy scheming against Pakistan by throwing it into political and economic instability and depriving it of a sustainable defence guarantee about its atomic program. The Israeli-Indian scheming against Pakistan is not a new phenomenon. freedom and security. Israel has supplied arms to India in the past as well. Moreover. India and Israel both are enemies of Pakistan and they cannot stand Pakistan¶s existence and its progress. He declared the establishment of Israel as illegitimate. it never lost an opportunity to harm 207 . Same is the case with missile manufacturing. well-being. the most modern Falcon carrier radars were provided to India. It was demonstrated in the past as well. which are over-dated and have to be upgraded. All this weapon-system is American made and cannot be sold to other countries without permission of the Americans. Rumours of an Israeli attack on the Kahuta plant were then in the air due to the fact that the Pakistani program is undesirable to both the countries. Israelis have promised to do the up-gradation of the Indian air force. Pakistan is an Islamic republic. The US had banned Israel to sell this gadgetry to India in the past. Israelis use American arms and have recently offered India to buy American arms. Falcon radars have the capability to sense planes in the range of about 200 miles and after its procurement India can have an eye over almost all important cities of Pakistan. an agreement worth 100 billion dollars was signed to develop earth-to-air missiles. where Israel supplies arms. Its results were quite positive. One of the main reasons of the Israel-India collaboration is arms trade.The Hindus and Jews India and Israel are fearful of Pakistan¶s international role. It wants to rebuild it with assistance from Israel. They want to weaken it and have been in a mutual relationship since long. on the other. It is used to hunt ballistic missiles. It is the latest form of Patriot missile. Israel has tried to make good relations with Pakistan and. Its installation over the coastal areas will also enable India to monitor Pakistani sea boundaries. whose founder and leader supported the Palestinian cause even before establishment of Pakistan. India also possesses MIG-21 planes. so they experimentally used the Eero missiles for the first time in Iraq. Likewise. but now the selling is being done with the willingness of the Americans. It provided India with pilotless spy planes and modern air surveillance equipment during the Kargil operation. India is the largest customer of Israeli arms worldwide. The Indian plane-manufacturing program is dead. On one hand.

India is murdering Muslim youth in occupied Kashmir and within its own country just as Israel kills Palestinians with a view to Muslim mass-murders. Israel is also selling weapons like radars and other equipment to monitor movement of the Mujahidin and check their activities. Some Israeli commandos have also been arrested or killed at the hands of Mujahidin in occupied Kashmir. Israel has shown India an anti-Muslim path. 208 .Pakistan and Muslims in collaboration with India. Indian genocide of Kashmiris in occupied territory has persisted under Israeli guidance. India has already resorted to Israeli cooperation to crush the independence movement of Kashmir. Moreover. Israeli leaders have never advised Indians to soften on Pakistan. its commandos are training the Indian army. It has provided military and human support to save Indians from Mujahidin attacks and to monitor their activities.

and chairs were laid out for the ceremony of putting formal signatures on the documents of the agreement. the Indian opposition parties exerted the pressure in such way that Manmohan Singh turned lesser into the prime minister than a RAW spokesman and explained that there was no centre of the RAW in the Jalalabad's Consulate. Though the Pak Army's spokesman institution. RAW. ISI chief General Shuja Pasha. the ISPR. America asked India to close the RAW's centre of terrorism in the name of the Jalalabad Consulate from where saboteur activities are carried out in Balochistan and weapons and money were provided to the BLA and the BRA. The Indian media's propaganda against the Pakistan Army. to the Americans. is busy making efforts in this regard.Campaign against ISI The India's rogue agency. Shashi Throor has claimed that 209 . Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has presented the proofs of Indian terrorism to the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. He had also to face the allegations of bowing before Pakistan while the Indian diplomatic sources are hellbent on proving this meeting inconclusive after terming the joint declaration of this meeting bed-drafting. The Indian wickedness can be gauged from the fact that when it was agreed between Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani and his counterpart Manmohan Singh in Sharm Al-Sheikh not to link the Kashmir dispute to terrorism. but the ceremony and the agreement were scrapped as a result of behindthe-curtain pressure and intervention of the RAW. has so much influence over its government that everything was settled between the Pakistan President General Pervez Musharaf and Indian Prime Minister A. has refuted this mischievous report of the Times of India in which it was claimed that the Pak Army and the ISI have started efforts to join talks with India. a tumult was raised against the Indian prime minister in his country. The biggest hurdle in anti-Pakistan plans of the evil triangle of RAW. The Times of India report is based on mischievousness and depicts the wickedness of the wicked Hindu usurer so that no opportunity should be lost to attack our security by getting benefit from this weakness. a trustworthy friend of Pak Army Chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani. India established the spying network and training camps for terrorism in Afghanistan at the behest and will of America. America has itself asked to close the Indian Consulate in Jalalabad. For this reason. According to the newspaper's claim. which is continuing. Afghanistan. Indian Federal Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister. Under strategy of the RAW. Not only that.B. behind which there is the media cell of RAW. Mossad and the CIA is the ISI.Vajpayee during the Agra dialogues. the newspaper said that the Pak Army and the ISI are certain that they can play an important role in the talks with India because they have a deep relation in the policy-making in Pakistan. including Afghanistan. With regard to diplomatic sources. Pakistan's ISI provided the proofs of terrorism and Indian intervention in Pakistan from Jalalabad.

our rulers should also not advance the step towards friendship and trade till the resolution of the Kashmir and water disputes according to the UN resolutions. not a legal document.the joint declaration was just a diplomatic paper. it can never be expected from India that it is convinced to solve our old Kashmir issue at the table of dialogues in the light of our principled stance on the basis of the UN resolutions. Under the given circumstances. 210 . Because of India¶s stubbornness.

Baitullah Mehsud selected a group of 500 militants who were trained in the similar terrain of Afghanistan for the specific operation. It¶s still not clear originally whose brain child this idea is . 47 years old nuclear scientist named Lok Nathan Mahalngam used to live in the Karnataka state of South India. They would tell the story as mentioned below. 2. The whole Indian media kept quiet on the event as if it was a routine loss like similar happenings in every second street and corner of the country. India intends to demonize the country in international politics and weaken it by involving international pressures.The Mysterious Death of Atomic Scientist The death of an Indian scientist is quite suspicious especially under unknown circumstances and due to unknown reasons. The news of his death and being lost as an important scientist has not been highlighted the way it should be. It¶s a question whether Baitullah Mehsud was backed by experts of India or Israel during the training? For sure USA and Britain were not aware of the plan hence its experts are not a party to the operation. We cannot say for certain that the purpose of this attack was to demolish nuclear installations but certainly it was directed to demonize Pakistan before the international community for not protecting its nuclear installations and to establish that these weapons are not safe in Pakistan. All the groups should be equipped with advanced communication instruments and weapons. On the basis of which a military intervention would be held justified in Pakistan. If we look at the track record of events as analyzed by experts. It would further shake the American trust over the safety of nuclear installations in Pakistan. Baitullah Mehsud¶s army would attack once and for all the Pakistani nuclear installations or spread smaller groups at different locations to do the task. India hired late Baitullah Mehsud (leader of Taliban) against 25 million dollars to attack nuclear installations in Pakistan. All the recruiters of Baitullah Mehsud were Pakistani and they belonged to (or still come from) the Mehsud tribe. But a more alarming fact is the silence of the Indian media on the death of an important person. Wherever it is possible the offenders must enter the nuclear installations and scare the Pakistani people through maximum media coverage at the international level. A brief sketch of the plan is discussed here: 1. He worked at Kika Atomic Power Station near an Indian military project C-BIRD. One of the countries has already sent the message to destroy nuclear installations of Pakistan where as Indian strategy to oppose it is more mysterious and driven by conspiracies. If the mentioned facts are reality based then it shows that the Pakistan¶s atomic activities are alarming for both the states. 4. the matter sounds to be highly sensitive. 3. This happened on May 2009.either India or Israel and when it was converted into thoughts. International media particularly those of the USA and Britain should portray an exaggerated picture equaling it to the situation during the Bay of 211 . Even the British and USA media ignored the news.

Pigs in 1961. Through these tactics an environment would be created among international community that the Pakistani nuclear program is dangerous and unsafe and should be handed over to international monitoring to disable its function. As it is evident from the above mentioned story that Israel is even more interested in the Pakistani atomic program. US White House. after some time a small scale atomic blast would be planted at American or NATO forces bases in Afghanistan to ensure that the Afghani Taliban or Muslim extremists have successfully succeeded in penetrating Pakistani nuclear installations. the whole world knows about the collaboration and cooperation between India and Israel on security affairs. Foreign Ministry and CIA all admit this fact. The Most dangerous element in this plan was that once the mission would be achieved. 5. Indian security establishment is always bent upon to dominate Pakistan and occupied Kashmir. It is clear that Israel sent utmost support to India during its war and tension with Pakistan in 1999 which resulted in the loss of marching Pakistan and the Kashmiri freedom fighters. Pentagon. 212 .´ Times of India also mentioned a report in this context which complains America has lost confidence that Pakistan¶s atomic assets are unsafe and they are ignoring the reality. On May 16 an Israeli website Debka revealed a story titled Singh Warns Obama Pakistan Is Lost which states that: ³Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has warned the American President that Pakistan¶s nuclear sites situated in NWFP are already partially in the hands of Muslim extremists.

BUT INDIA IS NOT READY FOR DIALOGUE WITH PAKISTAN 214 . A KEY FOR PEACE.Chapter 15 TIME FOR PEACE DIALOGUE.

215 .

the Delhi parleys between Foreign Secretaries of Pakistan and India on Feb 25. their engagement augurs well for the future. This forced the Pakistan side to convey to India that the focus was unfair. The talks afforded an opportunity to Pakistan Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir to present the country¶s point of view on issues of concern to Islamabad in an articulate and forceful manner. This is also important in the backdrop of the reality that Pakistan itself is witnessing almost on a daily basis the Mumbai like incidents. though understandable. urge Pakistani leadership to insist on a timeframe for negotiations. Pakistan was ready to participate in the process of composite dialogue with India. Pakistan can also pose a number of preconditions for entering into the process of dialogue but the country believes in settlement of its bilateral issues with India through a positive negotiation process. If India is not even willing to talk then how can we expect that New Delhi would ever reciprocate in sincere and serious manner to address the real issue? The two countries have been holding talks for decades but these have produced nothing worthwhile except conveying a false impression of engagement to the outside world. otherwise we would again be falling into the Indian trap. provided there were no preconditions from the other side. Sir Creek. Indian approach is highly deplorable and should be a cause of concern for policy-makers in Islamabad. unrealistic and counterproductive and that the process of dialogue should not be allowed to stall by a single incident. therefore. violation of Indus Basin water treaty by India and the issues of Siachin . we are ready for a proper process of composite dialogue´ the Pakistan spokesman said while responding to a latest statement of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh wherein he stated that there was no 216 . However. Though publicly India had been claiming that it would not discuss anything except terrorism but credit goes to Salman Bashir for a straight talk on the core issue of Jammu and Kashmir. response of the Indian Foreign Secretary. was shocking as she claimed that time was not ripe for composite dialogue. All media accounts of the short interaction between the two sides suggest that no progress could be made towards normalization of relations as India was not willing to discuss the real issues in a meaningful manner. We would.India not ready for dialogue As was widely apprehended. This is because Pakistan firmly believes that there can be no genuine peace and progress in South Asia without resolving the problems that bedevil relations between the two nuclear neighbours. 2010 produced nothing substantial mainly because of the belligerent attitude of India. Despite the fact that no progress was achieved in New Delhi. therefore. ³Ball is in India¶s court. some observers point out that the meeting itself was as a step forward in the sense that the two countries were not on speaking terms ever since Mumbai incident and.

other way but the composite dialogue for the solution of Pak-India disputes. To make hostage the entire peace process on the pretext of one single incident was not a mature approach. he explained. to address the issue of terrorism it is also imperative that Pakistan and India should work in cooperative form. purposeful and result oriented dialogue process´. as and when they respond to this road-map positively´. Pakistan was never desperate for the dialogue with India but being nuclear powers it was in mutual interest of both the countries to settle their differences and disputes through negotiation for the security of entire region. Basit said adding Pakistan has always been making efforts in this regard. ³We have given a road-map to Indians and now it depends upon them. He said the Pakistan¶s delegation visited India with a positive approach. Continuity of dialogue is not only in the interest of Pakistan and India but in the interest of entire region. 217 . Basit said that. Pakistan¶s position from day one was crystal clear to everyone with regard to composite dialogue and it will keep on pursing it in future also. ³We welcome the Indian desire for resumption of composite dialogue´. ³We will keep on trying to get engaged with India in a meaningful.

It seems that the Indian army is the largest component of the Indian armed forces. actually betrayed hostile intents as well as hegemonic and jingoistic mindset that were out of step and proportion with realities of the times. But unfortunately. officers like Col Prohat were found in killing and creating humanitarian crisis and the general was himself trying to threaten its own borders on grounds unknown to anyone and probably to himself as well. Is this Gen Kapoor¶s personal opinion or is he articulating government policy? What precisely is the nature of this new ³offensive´ nuclear doctrine and why is it needed in the first place? And could it be that Indian generals. adding that Gen Kapoor ³knows very well what the « Pakistani armed forces can pull off´. remain a million dollar question. India¶s armed forces are wholly answerable to the government of the day.A time for peace Nowhere is the military¶s say greater than in the sphere of foreign policy vis-àvis hostile neighbours or ostensible allies that sometimes try to dictate terms to Islamabad. and perhaps never more so than when CJCSC Gen Tariq Majeed warned against ³outlandish«strategic postulations´. It also conducts humanitarian rescue operations during natural calamities and other disturbances. We are mindful and ready about any threats to security of Pakistan as well as importance of promoting peace in South Asia. Whether. Its primary mission is to ensure the national security and defence of the Republic of India from external aggression. 218 . such statements like one Indian General gave. media. extremism and terrorism in so called secular India. are now calling the shots where regional policy is concerned? Islamabad¶s rejoinders have been stern. Pakistan army in its response termed the statement of Indian General as jingoistic and it was rightly so. it will not only damage regional peace but also destroy herself in totality. as opposed to elected politicians. As per spokesman. Pak spokesman further added that no one should underestimate our capabilities and determination to foil any nefarious designs against the security of Pakistan. Indian army from its statement looks as being commanded by subalterns and not generals. threats and maintaining peace and security within its borders. If India becomes pawn of international politics. But at the moment. Indian as well as international media will highlight this or not. Analysts. So how then are we to interpret a recent statement by the Indian army chief Gen Kapoor that his country can take on both Pakistan and China simultaneously? He even suggested that a ³limited war under a nuclear overhang´ is possible in South Asia. civil society and well-wishers of the region will keep discussing the two-front war statement of the Indian ex-army chief (looked inspired from Bal Thackeray and Bollywood) who left no space for India to clear its position on increasing militancy.
