JAMMU: Bad news for Pak apologists across India in general and Kashmir in particular. Pakistan has turned pauper and needs help. Come forward and donate liberally to reconstruction and development of the soil of terrorists, radicalised Jihadis and land of druggists.
Pakistan’s flamboyant Prime Minister has finally broken the myth of his country’s financial health and given a distress call to overseas Pakistanis to come forward and contribute.
One of the contributing factors to Pakistan bankruptcy could be the cut in US financial aid by over 75 per cent. It has hurt the nation of terrorists the most because, according to the US Senate, Pakistan has not done much against the terrorists groups sustaining and germinating inside the country. This is a huge setback to Islamabad, which is unable even to clear the interest on the foreign loans, leave alone the principal amount.
In a televised address, Imran Khan has said, “”Our debt today stands at Rs 30,000 billion but the biggest problem we currently face is the water crisis. When Pakistan was made, every Pakistani had 5600 cubic metres of water. Today that stands at only 1000 cubic metres. We have storage capacity of only 30 days for water when the safe period for water storage is 120 days. India has a capacity of 90 days. This is why making the dam for us is so important. I want to commend Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar [for starting the dams fund], but this was not his job,” he said. “This was the job of civilian leaders who knew this was going to swell into a crisis but did nothing to thwart it. I want to take over the fund-raising and want overseas Pakistanis to contribute like they used to do for the Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital. I will safeguard your donations”.
This is an important message for overseas Pakistanis. This is an assurance that he will not use their donations, as head of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, to fund in sustaining terror in Kashmir; to fatten Kashmiri separatist leaders and many others, as well; to pay booty to serial killers to assassinate innocents, mostly Kashmiris and their co-religionists.
Hopefully, the overseas Pakistanis will come forward to bail out Imran Khan’s Pakistan from the water crisis. But what about Pak lackeys in Kashmir? Won’t they come forward and help ‘Mamlikat-e-Pakistan’ at this hour of need? After all they have fattened themselves and saved future of their generations by usurping whopping funds coming via Hawala channels and probably through various trade routes. They should show some sort of compassion and return back something to their mentors, who are in dire need of funds.
Imran Khan’s appeal might have upset the stone-pelters, the terrorists and their Over Ground Workers and some other stakeholders in the Valley, who face imminent dry weather in the wake of depleting funds. The stone-pelters, who according to some mainstream leaders of the Valley are ‘heroes of Kashmir nation’, will get jobless. The stone-supplying industry too will go out of job. What will happen to all those in Kashmir?
The distress SOS from Imran Khan is an eye opener for the so called Kashmir main stream leaders who are undecided even after seventy years accession with India whether they should remain part of the Nation or accede with Pakistan, notwithstanding India spending Billions of rupees for development and reconstruction of Jammu and Kashmir besides facilitating their luxurious and king-size (in certain cases queen-size also) life styles.
Also, what will happen to the likes of Mani Shankar Aiyer, Pagwash activists, urban Naxals, disgruntled left wing politicians, and many others, who had pinned many hopes with Pakistan to save them from the ‘wrath of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’, who they wanted to be dethroned to carry forward the Pak-India bonhomie. Their trips to Islamabad will be jeopardised, as the good old days of cocktail circuit will get closed for the time being.
Imran Khan has sent a chilling message across Pakistan apologists in India. But who cares. The overseas Pakistanis will certainly oblige Imran and won’t let empty his begging bowl.
Why doesn’t Prime Minister Modi too respond as a good neighbour and throw something in the begging bowl?
