Pakistani terrorists attacked India in Uri, Kashmir, wearing green underpants, carrying weapons tagged with “MADE IN PAKISTAN” logos. Because India’s Sherlock Holmes are smarter than the fifth grader, they found out that one of the terrorists had a membership in Gymkhana Lahore and one of them lived in Bahria town Islamabad, also had visited Eiffel tower In Paris and Statue of Liberty in USA. As honesty in the best policy, I’m feeling envious and trust me on this one: India has a sense of humor.
Pakistan is the only country that has started the largest counter terrorism operation IN THE WORLD.
It has successfully won a war against terrorism in SWAT Valley, the hometown of Malala Yusufzai.
Pakistan has lost thousands of its military soldiers in the war against terrorism.
Since the last one decade terrorism in the country has been widely accepted as a central issue barring Pakistan’s economic progress, causing harm to the national cultural and social identity, it has isolated Pakistan in the world political and diplomatic realm. Pakistan has passed parliamentary laws in the last one decades, which are one of the most detailed and descriptive counter terrorism policies to have ever been passed in the country’s history. NACTA The National Counter Terrorism Authority has been established which is an internal counter terrorism intelligence agency and the tactical special weapons law enforcement force, something that has never been done before. Pakistan is producing thousands of PhD scholars each year, as said by the HEC Higher Education Commission, country is producing more PhDs than the last 55 years, which includes the critical researches on vital problem areas of Pakistan likely to help the country resolve grave issues including those related to terrorism.
In the regional and international context Pakistan has been able to actively cooperate on anti terrorism issues with many countries and organizations in the realm of intelligence sharing, military exercises and training. Being a signatory to 11 our f 13 UN anti terrorism conventions and an active member of the counter terrorism committee CTC of the UN, Pakistan has continually advocated broadening of its membership to promote inclusiveness, provide alternative perspectives and enhance transparency and accountability in its work. Pakistan has helped many countries across the globe in averting deadly attacks by sharing timely intelligence based on various interrogation reports and analysis. Pakistan’s name will always be remembered by the Srilankan military in their country’s fight against LTTE terrorists.
More so, Pakistan endorses democratic values of freedom, equality and liberty. The National Assembly has a total of 342 members, including 60 seats reserved for women and 10 for non-Muslims, as per Article 51 of Pakistan constitution, which entails fundamental rights chapter exclusively for the protection of human rights. Pakistan’s society, the new age urban middle class, the young and a large number of those real faces of Pakistanis identity seem to be invisible midst the brutal diplomatic onslaught against the country, the baseless and tormenting allegations. Pakistan’s numerous writers, historians, economists and scientists frequently challenge the dehumanizing discourse about their country, yet nothing seems to be enough.
It is nothing less than nonsensical to believe that Pakistani state, which is sacrificing its men, women, children and military soldiers to fight the cancer of terrorism, spending a large amount of money on targeted operations against the terrorists, both home grown and foreign funded would like the world to believe that it is still more monstrous than it is already painted by conducting Uri attack.
BUT WHAT MAKES PAKISTAN A VICTIM OF BELLIGERENT DIPLOMATIC OPPRESSION?
HERE IS THE ANSWER: Tell us what you think: an unblinkered vision of South Asia feature a country whose fanatically ideological government in 1998 conducted nuclear tests, threatened its neighbour with all-out war and, four years later, presided over the massacre of 2,000 members of a religious minority. Long embattled against secessionist insurgencies on its western and eastern borders, the “failing” state of this country now struggles to contain a militant movement in its heartland. It is also where thousands of women are killed every year for failing to bring sufficient dowry and nearly 200,000 farmers have committed suicide in the previous decade.
Needless to say, the country described above is not Pakistan but India, which, long feared to be near collapse, has revamped its old western image through what the American writer David Reiff calls the most “successful national re-branding” and “cleverest PR campaign” by a political and business establishment since “Cool Britannia” in the 1990s. Pakistan, on the other hand, seems to have lost all control over its international narrative” – stated in a review on Anatol lieven’s book “Pakistan: A hard country”.

Pakistan needs a concerted, all out and proactive re-branding of its national and international narrative.
Indian government has alleged Pakistan of an attack on its soldiers inside Indian OCCUPIED Kashmir, In a territory where there are 700,000 Indian troops stationed to suppress mass uprising against Internationally recognized illegitimate occupation of Kashmir valley against the will of the people of Kashmir? A territory where mass murdering of Kashmiri people expressing their right of self determination have lost lives and sacrificesd families to Indian atrocities for last seven decades? A territory where young freedom fighters like the one gaining fame in the wake of recent Kashmiri uprising Burhan Wani are shamelessly and heartlessly killed with label of a terrorist? A territory where people find such courage in the face of Indian barbarism to hoist arch rival Pakistan’s flag, sing the national anthem and cheer for Pakistani cricket team in a cricket match between the two neighbors. A territory where children, over more than hundred now have been blinded by the pellets used by Indian soldiers? A territory where news media reporting, national or international has been banned to kill the innocence in secret?
For its immediate neighbors India is not as shinning as it is to the world. It is vicious, expansionist and nothing less than a fascist Mussolini Italian state or a Hitler’s Nazi Germany, with only slight difference of having policies complemented by an ambitiously and tactfully driven international diplomacy. India’s highly magnified bitterness towards Pakistan may not be enough to define that country’s neighborhood relations as it is encircled by quite a number of relatively weaker states, as far as military power, economic Independence, or geographical size is concerned.
India has apparently held the policy of playing the role of a self-acclaimed regional leader, and poses carrying a policy of regional independence, while it does not approve of any outside intervention into inter-regional affairs. As also reinstated by India’s first Prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru in one of his speeches in 1961, talking about showing intolerance to outside interference into South Asian matters. Nevertheless, it seems a more fantastical and utopian concept looking at the amount of internal defence and social issues the country itself is dealing. On the other hand, India has a history of stirring border issues with almost all its neighbouring countries on the account of holding a military and territorial supremacy. With such intricate regional problems, where India itself is at the center of all the trouble by ignoring the hue and cry of rightful self-determination of Kashmir Valley, over-running the UN resolution on conducting a plebiscite in the Valley to determine will of the people, to considering itself United States of South Asia and threatening other countries to conduct surgical strikes on them on the basis of gibberish nonsense.
the myth of Indian regional supremacy finds no substantial grounds while it has been vehemently found involved in instigating violence and terrorism into the territories of its most substantially rival neighbouring territories:
Annexation of East Pakistan
Tallest of all arguments which stand as the epitome evidence proving Indian hegemonic designs is the Indian intervention into Pakistan’s domestic affairs, while alongside Indian intelligence agencies, its military resorted to a clandestine sinister logistical and arms support to local rebels in East Pakistan during the fall of Dhaka in 1971, which resulted in annexation of Pakistan’s territory into Bangladesh. An argument which Prime Minister Narendra Modi has recently stated as a historic fact and endorsed it while it was previously invalidated by Indian political saboteurs. Not to forget that the fall of Dhaka and subsequent creation of Bangladesh was a bloody event, which entails a series of anti-state intrigues backed by Indian intelligence. This is reaffirmed by numerous reports out there which negate the well-established beliefs propagated by India and its ever repulsive media. See for reference: declassified US reports, Indian military officers’ account, Pakistani military officers’ account, General Niazi’s memoirs, Sharmila Bose, Hamood ur rahman commission report.
China’s Tibetan Crisis
China’s famous Tibetan territory in the South has been a source of bitter relations between India and China, bordering India’s state of Arunachal Pradesh, India has an easy access to the troubled region. Indeed, the Dalai Lama’s (Famous Buddhist spiritual guru from Tibet) admission that Tibet is part of China, and that he seeks true autonomy rather than actual independence for his people, reaffirm the view of China’s claim over the territory India has so vehemently tries to destabilize. The People’s Liberation Army invaded Tibet in the middle of the last century challenges writ of Beijing rule. Resorting to state-sponsored terrorism, supporting an armed rebellion inside one of its most powerful neighbours, India provoked the Sino-Indian war of 1962. In order to subvert Chinese economic supremacy, Indian secret agency RAW with the assistance of American CIA and Israeli Mossad have intermittently been arranging subversive acts in China’s Tibetan regions contradicting to its own position on policy of no outside the region interference into inter-regional affairs. Besides, these agencies also incite Tibetan religious extremists for independence, who have been setting themselves on fire. In this regard, with the backing of RAW, a Tibetan exile set himself to ablaze in New Delhi to protest the visit of Chinese President Hu Jintao to India.
>>> It is still an irony, India is leaving no stone unturned to sabotage peace and stability in Pakistan by backing, funding and supporting a bunch of terrorists in Pakistan’s Balochistan province challenging the state of Pakistan, while ignoring the fact that on the other hand there are triple the number of Sikh freedom strugglers in India calling out for an Independent Punjab state by running a fiery Free Khalistan movement. Below is a more sophisticated list of India’s interference into its neighbour’s domestic issues, supporting terrorists and destabilizing the region, which it anxiously aspires to lead, but as they say one must lead by example, not by force:
1.Pakistan blames India of instigating separatists in Sindh and Balochistan
2.Bangladesh accuses India of supporting separatist movement in Chittagong Hill Tract (previously, East Pakistan, which India so brutally annexed into Bangladesh).
3.Sri Lanka calls end to Indian support of its Tamil rebels, demanding Independent Tamil state.
4.China vehemently condemns Indian backing of Tibetan Liberation Army.
5.Nepal criticizes India for supporting Maoist rebels in Nepal, and pushing them into Nepalese region to rid Indian territory of a separatist movement.
6.Myanmar authorities and the local people in the bordering areas claim that India has encroached on its territory by redrawing an unjust border.
7.Landlocked Bhutan lives constantly under influence of India’s foreign policy interest as it is dependent on India of its trade and economy, thus manipulated over India’s anti-china rhetoric keeping Bhutan from independent progressive foreign policy and greater economic benefits.
India’s humanitarian crisis
It is yet another irony that India’s massive violation of human rights has never hindered its luscious diplomatic relations with ideologically more humanity-loving west. From mutilation of freedom strugglers of Indian occupied Kashmir, and horrific discovery of mass graves of innocent Kashmiris and raping of Kashmiri women by India’s military to Muslim genocide of thousands in state of Gujarat in 2002 under the orders of the then chief minister of the state Narendra Modi, who is proudly elected as country’s current prime minister, known for his predominantly Hindu fascist inclinations. Moreover, India is a home to great communal riots and minority persecution, which is again re-assured by the Indian mass massacre of its Sikh community in a notorious secret operation called operation blue star conducted in 1984, which killed thousands of Sikhs in Amritsar by the Indian military forces. Indeed, the irony yet gain remains that such grievous brutalities against human lives remain sidelined when it comes to India’s ambitious diplomatic regime wooing the western world, while playing the victim itself. Writing about so much misery, and at the same time witnessing the hypocrisy of the world media is even more distressing.
