India’s claim to state terrorism

True colours of  BJP government are now on display from the actions and statements of PM Modi’s government and cabinet members. The statement by Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar that “terrorism will be used to counter any terrorist attack” is the latest edition. Earlier in a social media video national security adviser of PM Modi, Ajit Doval had also suggested that terrorism could be a good strategy to achieve strategic national interest against Pakistan.

Adviser to the Prime Minister on National Security and Foreign Affairs, Mr Sartaj Aziz, has expressed serious concern over the statement made by Indian Defence Minister

This statement  only confirms Pakistan’s apprehensions about India’s involvement in terrorism in Pakistan. It must be the first time that a Minister of an elected government openly advocates use of terrorism in another country on the pretext of preventing terrorism from that country or its non-state actors.

Pakistan  sincerely pursues a policy of good neighbourly relations with India. Terrorism is our common enemy and it is vital for the two countries to work together to defeat this menace, from which Pakistan has suffered much more than  any other country.

UNSG should take notice of Indian Defence Minister’s statement to determine whether India is in violation of UNSC Resolution 1540 and other followup resolutions on terrorism.

With love from India

My mother was forced to leave behind the city of her birth, Rawalpindi, when she was just 18 because of the tumultuous ruptures of Partition. She had never returned. When she was to turn 75, I thought the best gift I could give her was to take her, if it was at all possible, to the city and to the home in which she was born. I emailed my friends in Pakistan tentatively with my plan. They were immediately very welcoming. "Just get her a visa, leave the rest to us," they said. I applied for visas. It seemed then a small miracle that we got these easily. I booked our flight tickets, and before long we were on our way. Every night we would set out looking for a wayside shop to buy fruit juice. Each night we found a new shop, and each night without exception, the shopkeeper refused to accept any money for the fruit juice. “We will not charge money from our guests from India,” they would say each time. This happened for a full week. I have travelled to many countries around the world in the 60 years of my life. I have never encountered a people as gracious as those in Pakistan. This declaration is my latest act of sedition.
