Back to Pavilion?

Keeping its traditionally hideous style of resorting to delaying tactics with one pretext or the other–”India has, eventually postponed the July-20 Foreign Secretaries’ level talks with Pakistan.

Notwithstanding straight, strong and outright condemnation by Pakistan–”of the recent blasts in Mumbai–”India has unleashed an orchestrated and malicious campaign to malign and blame Pakistan for this gore incident.

Besides others–”even the Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh has pointed finger at Islamabad for “supporting” Mumbai bomb blasts. “It will be difficult to continue the peace process if Pakistan doesn’t control terrorist elements operating from its territory”, the Singh asserted sans any elucidating any evidence–”yet, of-course with habitually wicked Indian mindset.

At the same time–”Pakistan has rjected the allegation as ‘altogether unsubstantiated’. In keeping with New Delhi’s track record, the Indian Prime Minister has brazenly blamed Pakistan for involvement in the Mumbai terrorist attack without proof n the absence of any inquiry.

Regrettably, it’s modus operandi of the Indian agencies to mislead their leadership by throwing muck on Pakistan to cover up their own failings to keep track of the criminals and terrorists operating within the country.

It’s really disgusting that Pakistan is always dragged into any terror incidents in India without reason, logic and justification. And interestingly, all such allegations are ultimately proven wrong and malicious after the inquiries.

Whether it’s attack on Indian Parliament or Chattisinghpura Sikh carnage, allegations of Pakistan’s involvement had always been deliberate with no substance whatsoever.

New Delhi’s posture towards the Kashmir issue over the past about a year amply exposed that India was looking for an opportunity to wriggle out of the composite dialogue on one pretext or the other.

Its delaying tactics to address the core issue of Kashmir betrayed its mala fide intention to undermine the dialogue process between the two countries.

The truth is that India was never serious or sincere in addressing the Kashmir issue or to establish good neighbourly relations with Pakistan.

Its willingness for the dialogue with Islamabad was motivated by its international agenda especially its bid for the UN Security Council’s permanent seat.

That’s why its emphasis was more on CBMs rather than the Kashmir issue.

We have been sounding note of caution in these columns about Indian designs and counselling for a mature and pragmatic Pakistani approach towards New Delhi rather than displaying unnecessary exuberance in the form of exchange of so-called cultural delegations.

The irony is that we failed to comprehend India’s vicious motives despite its unambiguous declarations that borders cannot be changed and that Kashmir is its ‘integral part’. The dialogue is nothing but a pretentious hoax to hoodwink the world opinion.

It’s hoped that the government will see through the Indian game now and formulate a fresh strategy to compel India to resolve the long-standing and thorny Kashmir issue without which peace in South Asia will remain–”a distant hope or optimism.

With a ray of firm expectation that India shall not be let to go back to the pavilion–”without the solution of all the issues–”with Kashmir atop–”through the process of talks–”we are sure that the world, which is engaged in bringing back a lasting and durable peace–”around the globe shall instantly focus its all-out attention on the risky scenario–”which has, once again been–”created by New Delhi in South Asia–” lest hapless circumstances–”alike the pre-CBMs days–”revisit.

A heavier responsibility rests with the big powers–”with the United States on the top of the list–”along with the United Nations–”as the main objective of its’ Charter manifest ensuring global peace by getting solved all the prolonged disputes in an amiable way–”and more exclusively for being the guarantor of the birth right of Kashmiris–”ever since the adoption of UN resolutions–”for more than a dozen time, during the almost past six decades.
