A clarion call to world

  • Pakistan cannot allow anyone to destabilize it

By: Muhammad Zahid Rifat

India claims itself to be a big democracy. But it does not admit the terrorist activities it has been carrying out in furtherance of its policy of hegemony in its neighbouring countries, particularly targeting Pakistan in order to destabilize it and halt its forward march on the path of economic stability, progress and development and stop the great game-changer, CPEC, making appreciable headway. Thus India is a country sponsoring state terrorism by providing financial assistance and material help to terrorists for carrying out their subversive activities in Pakistan as well as in Sri Lanka and Nepal, so to say.

Pakistan has been drawing the world’s attention towards India’s hostile activities from time to time. But now it has given a clarion call to urge the world to open its eyes and see what New Delhi is doing in its neighbouring countries.

This clarion call has now been given in a dossier containing undeniable and irrefutable evidence by no less persons than Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (DGISPR) Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar at a joint press conference recently in Islamabad.

The dossier is now also being provided to the UN, the OIC and the P5 countries through their ambassadors and other possible means. It has also been provided in person to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres by Pakistan’s Permanent Representative Munir Akram. The UN chief has said that he will study the dossier so provided, containing irrefutable evidence about India’s sponsorship of terrorism in Pakistan.

It is worth noting that the international community is growing responsive to Pakistan’s stance, based on documents containing bitter and solid evidence, about India’s state terrorism, and the international media is also highlighting the Indian-sponsored terrorism in Pakistan and also drawing the world attention to continued Indian atrocities in the illegally Occupied territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

Despite being a so-called big democratic country, India is a state which is continuously refusing to adhere to international laws and conventions and has been consistently exhibiting such irresponsible behaviour towards its neighbours’ security and stability that it can easily be called a rogue state.

After being provided undeniable and irrefutable evidence about India’s state sponsored terrorism, Pakistan genuinely hopes for a positive response after this clarion call in documented form, and that the international community will longer continue turning a blind eye to such rogue behaviour by India, and play its role in compelling India  to immediately halt its state-sponsored terrorism inside Pakistan and play its role  for peace and security in the region

Quite obviously, if even after being provided undeniable evidence, the  world does not take prompt and due notice of the Indian agenda to  destabilize and undermine Pakistan’s security and stability then it (Pakistan) has the right to defend itself in every possible way.

India is supporting, financing and reorganizing terrorism organizations and terrorists which have been notified as banned outfits, like the Jammatul Ahrar (JUA), BLA and TTP, by the UN and pushed out of Pakistan by its valiant and courageous armed forces and security agencies. It is also a noteworthy fact that both neighbouring countries, India and Pakistan, are nuclear powers and India’s terrorism sponsorship can threaten peace and stability  not only in Pakistan but also the entire South Asian region. Pakistan will not allow anyone to undermine its victory over terrorism, which the country’s  armed forces and security agencies had secured after offering huge sacrifices  of lives.

Indian embassies and consulates along the international borders and Afghanistan are hubs of state-sponsored terrorism, mainly in Pakistan. India has lavishly been spending money to support and finance terrorists, and is reported to have distributed only during last couple of years or so more than Rs 22 billion on state-sponsored terrorism in Pakistan, so much so India through its intelligence  agency RAW is paying huge amount of Rs 10 million to the terrorists for each suicide attack in Pakistan.

According to the reliable information available, India has presently as many as 66 training camps for sponsoring and harbouring terrorists on its soil and also in Pakistan.

Not only this, India is also persistently violating the Line of Control (LoC), targeting and killing innocent civilians without any provocation though getting an adequate and strong response every time.

There is no denying the fact that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a great game changer, making major contributions towards economic stability, progress and development, increasing employment opportunities, and is boosting connectivity in the region and beyond.

Pakistan is ready to thwart all hostilities to harm CPEC in any manner by India as it cannot see this country making progress and development and has already taken appropriate security measures to defend CPEC-related concerns, Chinese engineers and technicians and others concerned.

The international community should know in plain words that Pakistan knows very well how to defend itself, and will not allow anyone to undermine its  stability in any manner .

After being provided undeniable and irrefutable evidence about India’s state sponsored terrorism, Pakistan genuinely hopes for a positive response after this clarion call in documented form, and that the international community will longer continue turning a blind eye to such rogue behaviour by India, and play its role in  compelling India  to immediately halt its state-sponsored terrorism inside Pakistan and play its role  for peace and security in the region.

    It is high time Pakistan realize that all these tricks are no more going to work. For over 3 decades, Pakistan was involved in sending terrorists into India and claiming they are NGO’s and that they are fighting against India to free Kashmir. But how long can these fake claims be accepted. If Pakistan wants solution to Kashmir, it needs to stop terrorism first and then expect to talk to India across the table. And if Pakistan expects India will budge to these tricks, it will remain a dream. This is proven, in the last 3 decades Pakistan tried to bleed India through Terrorism assuming India will come and settle Kashmir on the table, but that did not happen. Why will it happen now with a much stronger India and so much growth expected in the next 2 decades.
