Even the sudden visit of PM Modi to Pakistan, in the recent past, seem to have no impact on how Pakistan is willing to deal with terrorism and India.
The second consecutive terrorist attack in Punjab within a span of few months explains how useless stand the bilateral talk attempts between the two neighbours. Even with the change of governance in India tough stands against terrorist attacks and people behind them seems like a distant dream. Repeated intelligence failure costing lives of army men and citizens is a matter of serious concern and speculation.
Is it not time threats to the nation be dealt as strictly as possible ?
Pakistan has decided to ban 10 terror outfits which includes JuD which is led by Hafiz Saeed, alleged mastermind of Mumbai 26/11 attacks & Afghan deadly terror group the Haqqani Network.
After Tehreek-e-Taliban’s leader Mullah Fazlullah (the group which attacked an Army School in Peshawar and killed more than 150, mostly students) has been declared as a ‘Specially Designated Global Terrorist’ by the USA, Pakistan took stern steps to ban terror outfits in the country.
Until recently Pakistan has been constantly defending “Hafiz Saeed” and has always denied taking strict steps against terrorist outfits who frequently attack India. Still it is tough to decide if the deadly Peshawar Army School attack has taught Pakistan its share of lessons.
Its time the world understands terror has no religion.
Pak’s Nawaz Sharif govt has run two special trains from Karachi and Hyderabad to transport people to the JuD rally where the 26/11 mastermind and one of the world’s most wanted terrorist , Hafiz Saeed, openly warned India once again that India will face consequences if Kashmir is not ‘freed’. He asked the Sharif Govt to support Kashmiris in all possible way if India does not listen through dialogues.
While Paksitan says it wants dialogues with India on Kashmir issue , it has always maintained that it will not distance itself from the ‘separatists’ of Kashmir. Terrorists like Hafiz Saeed roam free in Pak while they are accused of 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai. Pakistan never agreed Kasab was a Pakistani while numerous proofs were produced in front. While Pakistan has always maintained double-standards they, on the contrary, claim India maintains double standards. Bottomline – Nawaz does not seem ‘Sharif'(decent) anymore.
As per the Minister of External Affairs,Salman Khurshid, the Indian Prime Minister,Dr Manmohan Singh had given a very straight forward and crisp answer to Pakistani Prime Minister,Nawaz Sharif on the Kashmir issue when both the PMs had met in New York alongside UN General Assembly. According to Khurshid,Dr Singh declared he did not become the PM of India to re-draw boundaries,to Nawaz Sharif.
Guess this statement was limited to re-drawing International Boundaries only because it is the same Dr Singh led UPA Govt which has recently re-drawn boundaries of a state once called Andhra Pradesh and given birth to new states of Telangana and Seemandhra attracting criticisms and praises,simultaneously.
Here are some more cartoons on Indo-Pak LoC dispute
PM Dr Manmohan Singh is on his visit to the US to attend the UN General Meeting in New York.He had a word with President Obama regarding continued terror attack on India. Dr Singh claimed Pakistan remained the epicentre of terrorism and President Obama promised Dr Singh, ‘frank’ words with Pakistani PM, Nawaz Sharif,on the terror issue.
After 5 Indian soldiers were killed and one wounded by Pakistan army which entered in Indian territory, Congress President Sonia Gandhi has said “India cannot be cowed down by such blatant acts of deceit” and urged the government to “take appropriate action.”
As usual , Pakistan army denied any such attack and to add on Defence Minister , A.K.Antony, in the Parliament said “The ambush was carried out by approximately 20 heavily armed terrorists along with persons dressed in Pakistan Army uniforms,” giving all good reasons to Pakistan to escape saying it may be some terrorist group in Pakistan army’s outfit !!
Needless to ask, do you know Hafiz Saeed ?? Still, let me remind,he is the prime-accused to have masterminded ‘Mumbai attacks in 2008’ . The kingpinof Mumbai attacks, flaunts his freedom in Pakistan.With the Nawaz Sharif government taking over Pakistan’s governance , some people may be hopeful of Indo-Pak ties taking some positive shape,yet again. But! Here comes the shocker for the optimistic and peace loving brains of India –Pakistan Govt has given aid of Rs 61 million to Hafiz Saeed for continuing welfare services . Yes!! Welfare!! 😀 😀
“Congratulations! Mr Saeed !!”
Is there anything else peace loving Indians can do other than congratulating him? 😦
Just a thought about how PMs of neighboring countries of India and Pakistan may greet when they meet ! Reminded me also of Nawaz Sharif who was recently been noticed flaunting his white tiger during Pakistan elections ! 🙂
Nawaz Sharif who has been elected as the PM of Pakistan for the 3rd term has invited Indian PM Manmohan Singh to attend the oath-taking ceremony.
