J K News Today Commentary
It was more than amusing when Pakistan started lecturing India how to approach Kashmir issue in the aftermath of the killing of seven villagers in a blast in a village in south Kashmir on Sunday . The tragic incident that owes its origin to the rush of the mob to the encounter site without caring for the warnings that it would be dangerous to do so, is being exploited by Pakistan , just to deflect the attention from its deep failures in keeping its own house in order.
Indian Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Ravish Kumar’s response to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s tweet on Monday on the tragedy in Kulgam was quite appropriate and a lesson for Pakistan and its establishment.
“The remarks made by Pakistan’s Prime Minister in his tweet today are deeply regrettable. Instead of making comments on India ‘s internal affairs, Pakistan leadership should look inwards and address its own issues.
Pakistan would serve the interest of the people of the region by taking credible action against all kind of support to terrorism and terror infrastructure from all territories under its control rather than supporting and glorifying terrorists and terror activities against India and its other neighbours. Pakistan’s deceitful stand on dialogue, while supporting terror and violence, stands exposed to the whole world.”
But, as is the nature of Pakistan , it would not learn any lessons because it is deaf and dumb to the sound and reasonable advice . It has ditched the US that had given it billions of dollars to fight terrorism, but in return , it encouraged the terrorists and their infrastructure with a clear intention to harm American interests .
The problem with Pakistan is that it dubs terrorists also as civilians , like it is evident from the statement issued by Pakistan Foreign Minister on Monday in which he strongly “condemned the horrific killing of more than ten innocent Kashmiris.” It clubbed together the seven civilians and three terrorists in the same bracket , terming them “ innocents.” It is the attribution of innocents to terrorists that has been the main problem of Kashmir. It is this deception and delusion that has harmed Pakistan and Pakistanis more than anything else .
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan who in a tweet on Monday asked India to “ realise it must move to resolve the Kashmir dispute through dialogue ….” Should apply this logic at home first . Let his government talk to Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement”. He would be doing a service to his nation if he gets the army to stop atrocities on PTM activists who are just demanding equal rights.
