At last what Pakistan wanted has happened and blamed India for stalling of the much awaited bilateral talks on terrorism and Kashmir on the sideline of United Nations General Assembly. Otherwise why terrorists abduct and kill three policemen and threaten them to quit their jobs. Why the schedule of releasing stamps on Kashmir coincided with the talks? The talks have been stalled since Pak-trained terrorists attacked Pathankot Air Base in Punjab. Even last year India in its strongest rebuttal had called Pakistan as ‘terroristan’ for providing safe havens to terrorists. The response came hours after Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi raised Kashmir issue at the United Nations General Assembly. There is no denying the fact that Pakistan and its notorious ISI have been waging a silent war against India since late eighties. India has been asking for extradition of Maulana Masod Azhar of Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed a co-founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba and the chief or Amir of Jama’at-ud-Da’wah, Dawood Ibrahim, the mastermind behind the Mumbai bomb blasts not only this, the neighbour has given shelter to terrorists like Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar. The 1993 Mumbai serial blasts were the biggest internal terrorist attack on India. Under such circumstances Pakistan crying hoarse as a victim of terrorism does not go well with anybody. Not only this the country fares bad on the democratic and human rights values. Pakistan should understand that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and there is no dispute except some elements who want to encash from the confusion created on the basis of religion; because of such a stalemate Pakistan has been raking Kashmir issue with a plea that the struggle of the people in the region is being “brutally suppressed” by India.Whereas the reality is that Pakistan has been nurturing India haters if the recent protest and stone pelting incidents are to be taken into account. Despite India producing evidence in Mumbai serial blasts, terrorists attack on Pathankot Air Force Station, Uri attack and many more, Pakistan has never been cooperating with India in its war against terror even the last BRICS summit naming Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohamed (JeM) as terror groups was a major diplomatic breakthrough in Xiaman in China. Today the situation is that whenever there has been a political process conceived for bringing in normalcy in the Pak terror-struck Valley of Kashmir it has been brought to a ‘no-talk’ situation by Pakistan.
