Pakistan: a Terroristan Country; says India

India has branded Pakistan as “Terroristan” in the recent UN General Assembly Meeting. Sushma Swaraj, India’s External Affairs Minister, had called Pakistan “pre-eminent terror export factory”. The contribution of Pakistan to the global terrorism can be said to be unparalleled as told by Eenam Gambhir, India’s first secretary to the UN in the UN General Assembly. The “land of the pure” is changing into “land of the terror”, says a report by BBC. Pakistan’s sponsorship of terrorism can be seen through the uprising of the Hafiz Saeed’s organisation, which is one of the UN designated terrorist organisation, as one of the political parties  in Pakistan. India’s representative stated that Pakistan’s counter-terrorism policy is to provide safe haven for the mainstream terrorists who are part of the global terrorist groups. It was also expressed that all the preventive measures taken by Pakistan do not justify any of their actions. India’s neighbour country must understand that Jammu and Kashmir would remain as the integral part of India, no matter how much Pakistan tried to violate the territorial integrity of India. On the other hand, Pakistan stated that it was not to be blamed for any political situation of Afghanistan. It was not providing any harbour to the Talibans. It also stated that there was a violation of the Geneva Convention in the Jammu and Kashmir by the Indian militants as many people were injured by the firing of the shotgun pellets. The injured civilians were merely protesting against the NDA government functioning in Delhi .Pakistan held India responsible for all the unrest in the Kashmir region. Pakistan requested the United Nations to send a special envoy to India in order to assess the prevailing situation of Kashmir (Indian Express). It was stated that Pakistan would revert back with the matching response towards India.

In response to this, Gambhir stated that Pakistan was diverting all the funds meant for improving the military infrastructure of different countries towards building the largest terrorist nation in the whole world. He stated that it was ironical that the country which gave shelter to terrorists like Osama bin Laden are now playing the role of victim in the current assembly.

But all the above comments are not backed by any kind of stringent action. India always avoids to take actions like halting the trade between both countries or taking off the “Most Favoured Nation” status from Pakistan. If the recent governments are to be taken into consideration, they have shied away from their responsibility. India’s cautious attitude from the beginning is costing very badly to India itself (Hindustan Times). Firstly, India will not take any major action against all the cease-fire violations and secondly, it does not ask any other organisation like United Nations to impose sanctions on Pakistan.

Balochistan Issue

Next coming to the Balochistan issue, though Narendra Modi raised the issue in the speech of Independence Day, 2017, but after that, India has kept quite over the matter. Balochistan is becoming the new East Pakistan due to the atrocities committed by the Pakistan militants. Pakistan is using fake photographs of the killings In Jammu and Kashmir by Indian militants. But India has only responded by branding Pakistan as “terroristan”.  India has issue with the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. Pakistan is coming up with different kind of projects like building dams etc. in that region. There is no opposition to that by India (TOI Report). Narendra Modi had claimed that blood and water cannot flow together through the Indus. The Permanent Indus River Commission has been suspended long ago. But now the World Bank is trying to act as the mediator between India and Pakistan in order to start the treaty again. There is no action as such from the side of India against this move.

Modi’s surprise visit to Lahore on the issue of cross-border terrorism turned out to be of no use. Immediately after that, there were mass killings by the Pakistan Militants. India tried to take the revenge by operating surgical strike over the opposition’s military pads. Following the same, Pakistan did not learn any lesson and kept on violating the cease-fire.  On 2nd October, 2017, Pakistan violated the cease-fire near the Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir which led to killing of a 10-year old girl and injuring several civilians (TOI)

A Change in the Attitude Of Indian Leaders- Need of the Hour

It seems that the India-Pakistan fight is of India’s alone. The NDA government asked Rajeev Chandrasekhar to withdraw his private member bill of naming Pakistan as a “terrorist state”. India is not even willing to brand ISI (Pakistan’s Investigation Agency) as an organisation sponsoring the terrorists. India, in furtherance of showing goodwill, allowed ISI to conduct investigation in the Pathankot attacks where ISI was behind the orchestrated attack in Pathankot. India needs to stop retaliating to Pakistan’s actions only by talks.

The time has reached where the Government of India have to retaliate more strongly. When the other country is not learning any lesson from the measures taken by India, it will be better to show a  strict attitude instead of a cautious attitude. Civilians  dying  as a product of the war between India and Pakistan.

Many peace talks have been conducted between both the countries. All of them turning out to be futile as none gave any positive results. India is always at a strategic advantage over Pakistan which it must use for the protection of its  nation.

Even the world public opinion is against India for such callous attitude. So the last thing left for India is to react in a manner popularly coined as “tit for tat”.
