India - Pakistan War Clouds – by A. Veronica Fernandes, Candolim
These days, BJP government at the Centre is creating artificial clouds of war against Pakistan giving an impression that war is the only solution to stop Pakistan from waging a proxy war against India thru the terrorists who are constantly creating problems for India especially in Kashmir. First of all, let me say openly that I strongly condemn Pakistan for helping the terrorists to create problems in India by killing Indian soldiers and even innocent civilians. In no way these heinous acts are acceptable. But will the war against Pakistan solve the problem? Somebody the other day suggested an all-out war against Pakistan till the entire Pakistan comes under the possession of India. This is like dreaming.
If India wants to wage a war against Pakistan, do we have now a professional and a competent Defence Minister like Israeli Moshe Dayan or American Dick Cheney? We have at the helm of our defence affairs an immature and ignorant in military affairs defence minister Manohar Parricar. He may be an expert and qualified in some other field but surely not in defence. If by relying on his Zero knowledge of defence system and war techniques, go to war against Pakistan, I am afraid we may fall in further problems and end in a way we ended in 1962 War with China whence India was totally destroyed, our soldiers were butchered and hundreds of acres of our land grabbed by China. This happened because our then defence minister Krishna Menon was ignorant of War games. Though he was sacked from the Cabinet immediately after that war but because of his lack of knowledge on this subject India suffered a humiliating defeat and that was the only defeat independent India suffered from our neighbours.
India under BJP is in a mess, nothing is moving well, people are disgusted with the government machinery. BJP came to power by openly declaring that they will do something good, better than Congress but with the naked eyes one can see nothing but clouds looming with fascism and RSS-ism. BJP is proving now that it wants to implement its hidden agenda of turning India into a Theocratic State. All the BJP leaders are having a mind-set of parochial and sectarian thoughts. They will never develop India, on the contrary they will take India back to the Stone Age.
India is blaming Pakistan for sending terrorists to India. I don’t know how far this is hundred percent true but one thing is certain, in Pakistan its own people and government are also suffering from terrorism perpetrated by the indigenous Pakistani terrorists only. Their aim is not only to hit India but also Pakistan and it is a pity that Pakistan officially is incapable to control these terrorists. Secondly, Pakistan being an enemy of India, we cannot expect Pakistan to kiss us. They are our worst enemies and wherever possible they will surely hit us. In view of this, is it not our duty to lock our doors properly and man them with efficient guards instead of keeping our doors open and vulnerable for our enemies to enter? When Mumbai attack took place, where were our Coast guards? Sleeping. Indian officials are on record to sell even atomic secrets to our enemies for a Whiskey bottle. In view of this how can we rely on such people to protect India? Indians are known to be the best bribeabe commodities and greater the rank greater is degree of bribe.
Once again I condemn Pakistani backed terrorists’ infiltration on Indian soil but the solution for this is not war but diplomatic negotiation and discussion, if necessary to involve third party closer to Pakistan. India got good diplomatic ties with all the Muslim, Arab and Western countries. Their good offices must be sought to enlighten Pakistan instead of counting on war. War will never solve this problem because both the neighbours are nuclear powers but India is too decent, too matured and too advanced nation compared to Pakistan that is ready to do any amount of sacrifice to destroy India, fully or partially. I came across Pakistanis in Kuwait who are ready to go into extinction but will be happy to see India should disappear partially at least. They have inborn anger against India for dismembering Pakistan and creating Bangladesh out of one unified Pakistan. They will forgive anything to India but never and NEVER the war against Pakistan to create independent Bangladesh.
Pakistan is a hurt nation and I disagree with those Indian statements saying India should bring Pakistan under its banner thru a fierce war. Those who think in these terms are day dreamers and idiots. Even if I get Pakistan free of charge, I will never accept that part of the subcontinent. Qualitatively that part is backward and cruel and also militant compared to India and it will be impossible for Indian administrators to control them. In this case, they will do more harm to India and Indian interest though India may have such ambitions because of its hegeomonistic lust that prompted India to annex militarily so many neighbouring territories including Hyderabad, Kashmir and Goa.
Because of India’s hegemonistic ambition, Zulficar Ali Bhutto first gave a call to manufacture an Atomic weapon to deter India from further dismembering Pakistan after the birth of Bangladesh. Said Bhutto in his masterpiece “If I am Assassinated” written in the prison cell where he was confined after sentencing him to the gallows: “We will rather eat grass but will definitely produce an Atom Bomb”.
