OLIVE BRANCH TO PAKISTAN A HIMALAYAN BLUNDER

AUM
TALKING TO PAKISTAN IS OUR HIMALAYAN BLUNDER
By Brigadier Chitranjan Sawant,VSM
The wound inflicted by Pakistan Army in killing BSF head constable Narinder kumar and mutilating his body by gouging out eyes and fracturing limbs, is so green and painful and yet a MEA spokesman announced that Smt Sushma Swaraj will be meeting her Pakistani counterpart on the sidelines of UN General Assembly session. It was like adding insult to injury. The Modi government should have been considerate to the grieving family and the nation. Unfortunately it was not. It gave more importance to a little piece of paper containing a sham invitation to talk, sent by a sworn enemy of India than to the sentiments of a vast majority of Indian men and women. Shocking episode indeed.
The babus of the Videsh Mantralaya do not know how to read the sentiments of the Indian people. I recall the advice tendered by PN Haksar to Indira Gandhi to rescue Zulfiqar Bhutto by agreeing to return their POW- 90 thousand plus and conquered territory without Bhutto signing a Peace Treaty with India abjuring armed aggression in future. Our Chhamb territory in J&K is still with Pakistan, notwithstanding our winning the war. It happened because no Army General was invited to participate in negotiations with the erstwhile enemy and other participants were oblivious of Indian piece of land in Pakistan’s adverse possession. Indeed a disgraceful show it was.
History is repeating itself now. Pakistan makes its diplomatic move as dictated by their Army. The Indian diplomats consider it unimportant to keep the Army with them in negotiating inter-State issues. The babus of the Ministry of External Affairs who rule the roost are rarely in the know of people’s sentiments. Many a time the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. Consequently, grave mistakes like agreeing to talk to Pakistan while their Army kills and mutilates our sentinels on the international borders, is committed.
All the brave words spoken by the BJP leaders while in the Opposition are conveniently forgotten while making decisions on issues relating to our hostile neighbor. The not so friendly political pundits say that someone keeps on dangling the carrot of the Nobel Peace Prize before our leaders. This allurement is too big to ignore by the greenhorns.
Many a pro-BJP TV channels and their commentators have left no stone unturned in criticizing the Pakistan policy of the BJP government. They have not minced words in predicting that the present dilly-dallying of the central government in dealing with Pakistan may cost the party a sizeable chunk of patriotic Indian votes in the ensuing elections to the Lok Sabha in 2019.
The plea of MEA that our government responded positively to the request of the new Imran government to start talking to push forward peace proposals. Little do our policy makers realize that Imran Khan is making a capital out of our leniency in garnering monetary support that his bankrupt nation needs now. May I ask if the new government of so called Naya Pakistan made a positive move in fulfilling our demand of punishing terrorists who perpetrated diabolic violence time and again? No, none, whatsoever. So, what is the urgency in bailing out Pakistan by our peaceniks? Are our MEA babus more Pakistan friendly than Imran Khan, their new Prime Minister.
By the way, it will be appropriate to mention that the new government of Naya Pakistan is just a puppet in the hands of the Pakistan Army. By backing their government, we are just supporting their Army that is so hostile to us. Hate Hindu, Hate India – that is the age-old policy being pursued by them. By supporting them we are scoring a self goal and losing our objectives. The earlier we abandon appeasement of Pakistan policy the better it would be for our Bharat.
