Indian war hysteria

From Man Mohan Singh to P V Naik, everyone is busy in playing a never ending game of blames and allegations against Pakistan.

The Indian policy makers are living in fools’ paradise. They think that by defaming Pakistan and by propagating Pakistan’s so-called support to the extremists, they would succeed in concealing the sixty years long story of atrocities and human rights violation in the Indian held Kashmir where every new sun is destined to witness new stories of brutal cruelties. Though Afghan president Mr. Karzai is of the opinion that India can play a vital role in bringing peace and prosperity in the South Asian region but the facts and realities are altogether otherwise. India is playing the worst possible role in painting a horrible picture of the South Asian region where there would never be even a tinge of peace and prosperity. Indian atrocities are not limited only to the human rights violation in Kashmir but also to the neighbouring countries like Pakistan, China, Nepal and Sri Lanka. An American Congressional report says, “India had been the top arms purchaser among developing countries in 2010 which shows it is in a state of war hysteria.” Another report recently published in the western media says that India would be acquiring six C-130 air-lifters for its air force as part of its strategy of spending $100 billion on defence in the next 10 years. The same report says, “India is enlarging its airfield in Kargil to make it suitable for all types of military planes. Construction of a modern airfield means an attempt to gain mastery in high altitude warfare against Pakistan.” Even more alarming is the news that India will also be holding war games along Pakistan’s border in near future. These war games are specifically formulated to capture enemy’s strategic assets and paralyzing its defence capability. The government of Pakistan must review its soft approach and mild reactions to the ever-increasing Indian aggression. Matters with India seem impossible to be settled through negotiations and peace-talks. The government of Pakistan must reconsider the state of affairs with India. A stern response to the Indian aggression would be in the larger benefit of not only the people of Pakistan but also in the interest of Indian-held Kashmir and Afghanistan.
