In recent meetings of the G20 and ASEAN, PM Narendra Modi has demanded sanctions against Pakistan and to declare it a “Terrorist state”. These and his actions and statements on Balochistan and POK were very welcome and a departure from past govts. It has also brought attention to Pak violations of human rights and killings in Balochistan and POK. The question now is: What will ModiSarkar do after the latest terror attack in Uri at an army camp? The camp is reportedly one where Jawans changing shifts or postings reside and is more of a make-shift camp. After the Pathankot attack in January 2016 this is what DM Manohar Parikkar had to say:
Let’s get some perspective. In November 2011 NATO forces attacked Pak troops at the Afghan border. This resulted in casualties and Pak responded by shutting down the supply routes for the US to Afghanistan. It was shut down for over six months till Hillary Clinton apologised sometime in 2012. Even a terrorist-state responds with some action to attacks on them, even if incidental. But a massive country like India with a million-plus in the army continues to merely mouth verbal condemnations after every terror attack on India and particularly on our troops in Kashmir. And this is going on for 25 years now.
In 25 years of terrorism that we have faced in Kashmir and other places in India, our GOI has not retaliated even once. We have never crossed the LOC ever. What is the message we have been consistently sending Pak? “Kill as many as you can but we will keep up our verbal condemnation and nothing else”. This emboldens more terrorism and more brazen attacks even on our Jawans. Here is what Modi tweeted about the UPA govt in August 2013:
What is it that you are prepared to do now? What is ModiSarkar going to do? There is no doubt that terror attacks across the board have gone down since May 2014 but wanton attacks on our Jawans as in Pathankot or Uri simply cannot go unpunished or without a price to pay for Pakistan. Here is another taunt from Modi to the UPA in his “Doob maro, Doob maro” speech on Pak terror attacks (Video 0.19 secs):
Let us understand how our Jawans died in the Uri camp. According to TV reports most of the deaths were not caused by their battling terrorists. Most of them were killed in their tents in fires caused by grenade attacks. 17 of them died for nothing. The deaths and injuries might go up. The attack came on a day when a one army unit was replacing another at the LOC. Someone is leaking such information. Who are these traitors? -And all that happens is people like Rajnath, Parrikar and others hold emergency meetings. This is not the language that Pakistan understands which Modi wants to speak to them. A surprise visit to Pak to attend the birthday party of Nawaz Sharif laden with gifts is not the message to a terrorist-state.
There is something more alarming and disgusting as well. The ministers and sidekicks of ModiSarkar are unable to stop hobnobbing with terror-sympathisers like NDTV or the Kashmiri-instigator Barkha Dutt. Even Sajjad Lone was blunt enough to tell the woman her reports cause unrest. Curbing “Terror support services” within India does not take dealing with Pak or terror groups. What is the message you send when parade with people like these?
The blurbs are a sarcastic comment on the dumbness of the Home Minister who blabbers his “Kadi Ninda” after every terror attack. It has already become a comic joke. What every govt at the Centre has demonstrated since the 1990s is that none has the guts to combat terrorism or take punitive measures for deaths caused. ModiSarkar cannot even stop bogus reporting from Kashmir or conflict-zones by Barkha Dutt or other reporters who make hay while the terrorists kill or riots are inflamed. It would be ignorance if the GOI still does not realise that terrorists don’t merely want to kill – they want the media to provide them publicity and propaganda:
Priming! That’s right. Certain elements in MSM “prime” the publicity and propaganda for terrorists through their TV channels or print or even social media. And our Home Minister puts out some of the worst delusional messages, like this one after the Pathankot terror-attack:
Seriously, Pakistan has been exposed many times in the last 70 years and that doesn’t shock anyone. It is the GOI that is being badly exposed as pussy-footed for 25 years when it comes to terrorism. Through his global reach and speeches Modi has definitely turned Pakistan into an international pariah. What exactly does India stand to gain with this terrorist state? He wants world powers to pass sanctions against Pak. He wants to Pak to be termed a terrorist-state. Rajnath Singh grandly states after the Uri attack that Pak is a terrorist state:
And this guy, Ram Madhav, who is constantly chattering with NDTV and Barkha Dutt is another big blabber-mouth of the BJP. The PM promises the terrorists will be punished? How? And what exactly was the “Strategic Restraint” policy? Where do these concocted silly terms come from? The terrorists or fidayeens don’t care a damn if our Jawans die. Does our own GOI care anymore? This stupid loud-mouthed blabbering is the biggest insult heaped on the Jawans killed or the innocents that die:
Both Modi and Rajnath want Pak to be declared a terrorist-state. Who should do that? Some third country? Why is it that India is not willing to take the first step instead of waiting for everyone else to fight for her? Nobody is going to fight for India. Foreign media like AP or BBC still call these terrorists “Rebels” as if they are locals who are revolting against some political issue. Who is ModiSarkar waiting for? The new president of the US? Nobody is going to do it for you. I believe time has come that we put Pak in a hole – first through non-military actions:
# Declare Pakistan a terrorist-state officially and cut off all bilateral ties with a resolution in the parliament. Withdraw the MFN status and cut off all ties.
# Expel the Pak envoy from Delhi and recall our envoy from Pak. Shut down our missions and ask all Indian citizens to return home.
# The Pak envoy is an extreme India-hater who courts love with the separatists who want to break India.
# Ask all Pak citizens to return back. Nobody knows how many are still living illegally in India. Ban all travel by Indians to Pak.
# Ban appearance of all Pak panellists in any Indian media. All they do is abuse India and claim all terror attacks are self-inflicted by India to bad-mouth Pak.
# Make any sympathy for terrorists of any form severely punishable by law.
# Ban all cultural ties and ban all references to Pak by hate-mongers in Bollywood. Make no mistake, Pak-sympathisers even in Bollywood don’t do it accidentally.
# No more visits to Pak by any minister or PM. Not even for SAARC or any multi-lateral summits.
# Get rid of Pakistan from SAARC. Nobody needs this sewer of a country which brings no value to any of the SAARC members. Even Bangladesh blames it for terror-attacks.
What exactly do we want or gain from Pakistan? Nothing! When will we start putting our own interests above this stupid country? We have nothing to gain – not even business of any size is meaningful to us. Enough of “Kadi Ninda” or “Strongly Condemn”. Any military action across the LOC can wait another day. Pakistan does not want peace with India. Only the most delusional Indians think it does. It has declared a 1000-year holy jihad against India. There’s no need for more Jawans or innocent people to die. After Uri if the GOI still goes soft – I’m sure India will be seen as a soft, cowardly country not by others but by Indians themselves.
