The Kashmir Saga

56b33d421a024

World has speculated, it has been horrified and it has witnessed India and Pakistan reaching at each other’s throats throughout the history of their existence as neighbors, solely for the dispute over the scenic Valley near the Himalayan mountain ranges, the Valley of Kashmir. By its appearance, the conflict still lingers, at times it has lurked in shadow as back-burner, other times it has triggered violent confrontation and the infamous rivalry of India and Pakistan. The year that has gone by will be remembered for reigniting the tensions inside the Indian-occupied Kashmir, which consequently intensified aggression between the two neighbors. From United Nations General Assembly one on one between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Pakistan’s Ambassador to United Nations Maleeha Lodhi’s blowing reply to Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj, it was a year full of political upturns. However, the political face off was swiftly shifted to cultural and social onslaught when Indian Hindu fundamentalism took to the front, and vehemently declared a ban on Pakistani artists working in showbiz in India, which highlighted the depth of Hindu fanaticism clawed into the social fabric of Indian society. The Indian allegations of Pakistan’s incitement of Kashmiri uprisings, and subsequent attack on an Army camp in Uri paved the way for an all time low in the Indo Pakistan equation. It was met with the debatable and questionable “surgical strike” phenomena which seem to have fancied and fan-girled Indian people to a great degree.

As a matter of fact, India has emerged to become a rapidly radicalizing society, where television news shows broadcast their programs to feed on the mounting tensions, provoke their audience to endorse hate speech and war mongering to Bollywood industry out of its fear of Hindu fanatics boycotts cultural exchange with neighboring Pakistan. The Indian strategy to suppress the demand of Kashmiri people has shown multiple colors and has adopted many shapes, however, military action still finds its way through the non-military strategies India has utilized to counter the Kashmiri freedom struggle, which lays bare the conviction, the earnestness that the Kashmiri sentiments of liberation beholds in the face of seven decades of suppression.

On a personal note, I still remember my grandfather narrating me stories of their visit to Srinagar during his early days of marriage, unarguably an ideal romantic place for a newly wedded couple. The beauty of Kashmir’s Dal Lake with curtain-covered tourist boats offering boat-rides was always his favorite part to describe. I still recall his gleaming eyes reflecting memories of his eight years summer time vacationing in Srinagar.

The most interesting and the most fearful of the twists have entered into the Indo-Pakistan equation with the entrance of unpredictability into the white house this year. The unpredictability of the Trump presidency, his immediate immigration ban on Muslims and his explicit call to associate his fight against terrorism with fight against Islam, affirms an expected change in foreign policy towards South Asia, and more prominently the two nuclear rivals. The noticeable domination of Indian narrative in the Capitol Hill and Congress circles reinstates that Pakistan is expected to have a rough ride with the new Republican administration in white House. Donald Trump’s departure from America’s traditional and constitutional practices would be challenge for the foreign policy endeavors he will undertake, especially with Muslim-specific influence over his policies; there is an evident downslide for the question of Kashmiri freedom struggle. During Indo-Pakistan confrontational moments, United States has remained a silent spectator or other times, Washington D.C. has issued official statements leaving the matter for bilateral engagement. However, with the new, “unpredictable” and “unusual” administration in the Washington, the likelihood of a change in policy is high.

With two of the Indian members already inducted into the Trump’s administration and one of the largest expatriate community in United States, Indian influence in American politics has saved it while human rights violations in Kashmir had been rampant, use of pellet guns on children and massive anti-India protests. Ajit Pai, is senior level Indian American in Trump’s administration, following Nikki Haley, nominated US ambassador to UN (a cabinet-rank position); Seema Verma, head of medicare and medicaid; and Preet Bharara, US attorney for the southern District of New York.

Nonetheless, the existence of Kashmir Valley as a disputed land cannot be brushed away; the Line of Control between the Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir and Pakistan’s Azad Kashmir is still a non-permanent border, internationally recognized disputed territory, to which end United Nations has already passed resolutions for India to hold to a plebiscite. The multiple unresolved disputes, especially Kashmir, the likelihood of terrorist incidents and a nuclear threat triggered through military environment, has made the India-Pakistan deadlock the only greatest danger to international peace and security. New Delhi’s submission for domineering power status could be hurriedly compromised if another war broke out, by plan or mistake, with Pakistan.

Nevertheless, the Kashmiri freedom struggle has surpassed the worse and rejoiced its identity when speculations of its lost motivations became famous, it has survived through generations, and Kashmir has redefined the phrase: “what doesn’t break you makes you stronger”.

Global Radicalization to counter Islamic Radicalization?

_88160170_trump-promo

Michelle Obama said in her final speech as first lady: “Our glorious diversity is our faiths, our colours, our creeds. That is not a threat to who we are; it makes us who we are”

The world is undergoing difficulty digesting the reality, there is a large majority of Muslims readily becoming more conscious of their image, which is helping them shape a new world for their existence by questioning their own kin. However, on the other hand a large majority of thousands and millions of people lead by pre-dominantly radicalized leadership are leading NATIONS without division into reactive radicalization, against the Muslim population without assessing the differences among them, the rising rift between the handful of practically “disowned” Muslim terrorists and larger majority of unrecognized Muslim victims and sufferers. It is ironic that nations like Syria, Pakistan, Turkey, Iraq are fighting within their own national boundaries violent battle against the radicalization, which is both at the ideological and physical grounds.

Is this where world is moving towards? Suggesting to counter extremism, religious fanaticism by becoming a fanatic? – Assessing by the nature of the said analogy, the result of such strategy would be counterproductive, resulting in a world full of fanatics, running wild to kill one another. If the world has to judge Muslims by the acts of a few than it would be equivalent to: India is a country of rapists or America is the country of gun violence, ignoring the fact that nations cannot be branded over actions of the few.

When countries fight extremism at national level, it is witnessed that they are deliberate and conscious of dealing it with two contrasting strategies, while there is counter strategy to curb terrorism through military, on the other hand there is a softer, a diplomatic strategy to counter extremism that is the root-cause of terrorism.

statue-of-liberty

By the virtue of basic knowledge, which is expected of leadership, it is evident that proclamations aimed at causing polarization in the world is the formula for fanning and feeding the extremism. Nation-branding, religious and racial discrimination presented as a solution to counter the prevalent global problem is only the work of a closed-mind, work of someone who is ignorant, incapable of understanding the dynamics of political deliverance, in the nutshell, this is someone unfit for securing executive position, let alone member of an administrative staff.

If extremism is the solution to extremism, then the terrorists have won already. If they were in favour of Muslims of the world then they would not place them in a position of suffering, they wouldn’t cause them criticism victimization. It is the generic anatomy of the terrorists to produce a situation where the world becomes hostage to their presence, their activities. It is rather interesting and unfortunate, whenever a terrorist attack occurs, Muslims are taken over by the fear of being judged and questioned for their identity, and on the other hand non-Muslims are taken over by fear of Muslims for being the cause of the attack. The common factor here is indisputably the phenomenon of fear, which is THE objective of the terrorists. According to research conducted by various quarters, following are the average goals of terrorist groups:

  • To spread FEAR among the population
  • To become relevant in the global politics
  • To garner support from certain community who they proclaim to be fighting for
  • To make headlines by carrying significant actions, attacking monumental places

It is quite evident that the basic motives of terrorist groups around the world are quite similar; therefore, this homogeneity of purpose should be utilized as a platform for unity among the victims of terrorist in order to form a counter terrorism strategy.

How to deal with terrorism?

state-terrorism

Numerous studies relating to terrorism have suggested that there are direct psychological effects of terrorism on the individuals from all around the world. It is unfortunate that Donald Trump’s new immigration policy based on global polarization and radicalization would do little to improve the situation. Donald Trump’s aggressively rigid policy for countering terrorism is already producing negative impact, causing him criticism and protests inside United States and globally. On the contrary, to take a lead from where Obama presidency came to an end, he could initiate a more globally inclusive policy as far as countering terrorism in concerned.

  • Forming a global alliance for countering terrorism, including local Muslim population alongside the leadership.
  • One of the few Obama talents was his communication skills, Mr. Trump would have been appreciated more than the criticism coming his way for being vocal about his globally inclusive policy.
  • Taking advantage of Muslim population growing weary of their racial branding by bringing them in the fold of global counter terrorism policy
  • Focus on countering terrorism rather countering cultural beliefs. USA growing more accepting towards to non western cultures, which would help USA changing the perception of the country in larger Muslim population.

This is rather naïve to expect peace by holding “no entry” signs in your hands. Logic dies indeed, from where Trump leads.

 

 

How to bring peace to the planet Earth

peace on planet Earth

Bringing peace to planet Earth


Through patience, knowledge, and forbearing

There are many ways we can look at this problem.

Many ways to dissect the nuance of what goes into making ‘peace’ a reality for every living being on this planet.

But the fact of the matter is, that we can only employ some of these things at a time.

We can’t rush forward too fast – risking chaos and loss of valuable lives.

Neither can we keep pace too slow – risking inaction and yet still the loss of valuable lives.

Realistically, we’re left with only the third option which is to keep up a medium pace.

That which allows us to do things fast but not too fast, and slow but not too slow at the same time.

The way to bringing peace on planet Earth through forbearance

To truly understand who or what you’re competing against, you have to understand a few things before putting skin in the game.

The most important aspect of working towards peace is through forbearance, but also through:

  • Fortitude
  • Resilience
  • Attention
  • Focus
  • Knowing
  • Learning
  • Action

Think of whatever it is that you’re going to do something that you have to take into consideration on a level that’s in harmony with the amount of knowledge you already have.

Meaning that you can’t overshoot based on whatever knowledge you already have.

For instance, you’re not going to take on a world champion boxer just because you ‘think’ that you can box better than him/her.

You have to train diligently, with focus and determination – putting everything you have in your own game instead of looking out for your opponent.

Your adversary will do exactly what they’re supposed to do: try to beat you down.

They hate you for a reason: you challenge their game, you challenge their mental fortitude and you challenge their championship.

Make no mistake, you will get the beatdown of your life if you started going after your enemy after one lesson in boxing.

But given enough time and learning, you’ll eventually come out on top.

The key is to focus on your own game.

Similarly, you can think about what the society already is like and what are they doing that will place hurdles in your way to success.

Are you merely going to focus on the fact that society will put hurdles in front of you?

Or will you focus on what you are supposed to do and counter anything that the society can throw at you?

First and foremost, have a goal in mind.

What are you trying to achieve?

Is it world peace?

Okay, then my question to you would be: “how do you achieve world peace?”

There are literally infinite possible ways of doing this, and you know that you can’t focus on all of them.

So, naturally, you would have to focus on a limited set of these in order to achieve a large part of your goal.

If you don’t have money, then can you get money? And if not, what other routes can you take to bring peace around in your community?

If you don’t have a wealth of knowledge, then you can get it? And if not (well, first of all, may God help you!), what route should you take to get this knowledge?

Forbearance is your biggest ally in your quest to bringing peace on planet Earth.

And to achieve that, you must first go through the motions that TEACH you humbleness and righteousness.

Humility and righteousness are learned not given!

Having patience and resilience to come through just in time!

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime

– Anna Isabella Thackeray Ritchie

You must treat your inner self as the person who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

Keeping this fact in mind, you have to become humble enough to learn from the masters.

And then apply that which you’ve learned through relentless practice and vigor until it becomes second nature to you.

Allah never changes the condition of a people, until they change that which is within themselves…

– Surah Al-Anfal (Chapter 8, Verse 30)

Self-discipline and the willingness to be a student will keep you relevant and fresh forever.

Just as life is an unending game of survival, thriving, and learning; so too is the fact that you must be willing to do this day in and day out.

No matter how badly beat up you get, no matter how much bruised up you get, you have to get up and come up with new ways to succeed.

And eventually, when the time is right, and you’ve practiced and learned enough…things will start to happen your way.

Keeping in the lesson of the Koran that those who follow their own inner desires according to how they want to follow them will never succeed…

Whereas the ones who follow their desires according to how Allah has ordained for them will always find success.

O, ye who have believed! Then follow your desires according to what Allah has given you, and not let your mortal enemy dissuade you from the straight path.

The mortal enemy is Shaitan (Satan) and the straight path is the path without ambiguity, confusion, or mental degeneracy.

Stick to your guns and don’t let the whispers of doubt and rebellion take hold in your mind.

Recognize this as a ploy of the most wicked and the accursed and calm your nerves, knowing that you’ll find Allah most merciful and gracious.

The more resilience you build, the more blows you can take, and the harder you’re defeated; the more chances of winning you get.

There’s always going to be someone somewhere in the world who’s training harder than you, while you’re sleeping.

And if you face that person in combat, he/she will beat you in the field.

The more you train, the harder it will become for the other person to take you down with one shot.

But if you party all week, watch television, and play video games, then know that your adversary will win every battle.

You pick your own enemies and you pick your own fights, but their outcome entirely depends on your preparedness.

The more prepared you are, the more chances of squaring off or even winning you have.

In life, those who play the long game know it very well that sometimes they’re ahead and sometimes they’re behind.

They’re not fazed by temporary defeats or soothing victories.

They move on to the next task and complete it as efficiently as they can.

World peace – achieved!

We don’t know when complete peace will be achieved, it’s way too early to tell.

But given enough time, outcomes and consistent results – we’ll know how long peace lasts.

There’s always going to be some friction in the world.

Some nuance that you missed and your enemies picked up on.

The more you show weakness and capitulation, the more violence your enemies can commit against you.

Therefore, the best thing you can ever do for yourself or for those you love is to strengthen yourself.

Strengthen your resolve to deter and counter any moves by rogue, rebellious or adversarial forces which seek to demolish you.

In all circumstances, you must focus on what you are going to do next, instead of focusing on your enemy.

The reactionary game must stop!

You can’t keep reacting to what happens in the world. That’s literally what mentally retarded people do!

Mentally healthy people anticipate their own moves and then act accordingly to what they themselves are going to do.

Not what someone else is going to do to them.

Hence, world peace on planet Earth can be achieved not through more violence or rabid reactionary reflex that we often get to see in the 99%…

But rather by slowing down our thoughts, focusing them on one point in our life and humbling ourselves enough to learn from our masters.

Make no mistake you WILL have more than one master, and the sum of their parts must be greater than the whole – YOU.

Diplomatic approach and 3 ways to avoid being defeated

pen is the symbol of diplomacy and education

How to be diplomatic and avoid being defeated

Let’s start at the very foremost thing.

That’s your fear, your insanity, the quitter within you who keeps coming back to haunt you for whatever reason it sees fit.

You need to be able to fight this. How effectively you’re able to fight it will determine your success ratios.

Think of this world, this life – this process as a living piece of art.

Sun Tzu titled his book ‘The Art of War’ for a good reason!

It’s the ART of war, the ART of painting a beautiful picture with the paintbrush of your life – the ART of life itself.

You can’t ignore this fact and you certainly can’t avoid it.

For you to be able to paint that picture, you need to have/go through some realizations in life.

I’m not going to tell you what they are because I don’t know what they might be for your individual case.

I can only reveal to you a certain path that you can take to make those realizations.

Yet, most people will not do it.

I don’t know anything about how diplomats conduct their business on a daily basis.

But I do know that they have ‘the’ magic formula to get it done.

And that magic formula is being patiently impatient.

Meaning that you consistently go after that which you’re very impatient about – in a diplomatic and subtle way.

Think of getting what you want from others as a beautiful exercise of collaboration, ebb, and flow, energetic and dull phases…

And only engage in a full out war if nothing else works, and everything systematically fails you.

When your skills to communicate fail you, you have to realize that it’s no longer you, it’s the person you’re trying to interact with who’s the problem.

And that moment, and only at that moment are you allowed to chuck your nuclear weapon at them.

What it means to be diplomatic

Most people think of diplomats as being people who speak with forked tongues.

In fact, the reality is that they’re combining a beautiful symphony of words and colloquial which help establish them as a socialite and likable personality.

Believe me when I say this: you don’t like to talk to someone you don’t like, whereas you’ll always be excited to talk to someone you really, really like!

Think of an example of media persons, actors, actresses, singers etc. would you want to talk to them in a boisterous and loud tone?

I highly doubt it.

You’ll lower your wing to them so that they may recognize you and maybe even be gracious enough to take you under their wing.

Isn’t that true about yourself and those around you who admire celebrities and people of immense wealth?

Now then, can we not easily draw a comparison between them and how the diplomats of a country interact with those of another?

Of course! Hence, we can conclude that those with superior etiquettes, social skills, and communion will always come out on top in almost every situation.

So then why don’t we ever learn from our diplomat friends? Make some of them our mentors and get them to teach us how to talk, and how to walk?

Most people don’t do it because of the size of their ego and why they don’t want to seem small or appear insignificant in front of others.

This whole image thing has gotten way out of hand, and I feel like this will take some real work to reverse.

However, if the astute reader is willing to put in the effort to seek out such people and learn from them what you can, then I can see the world morphing into a better and peaceful place.

Diplomats in effect prevent many wars and conflicts.

But should their skill fails them, their entire nation has to have their backs when it comes down to war.

For instance, if a Pakistani diplomat is on a mission abroad to build a positive image of Pakistan, then the government and the nation itself has to work hard in order to make the illusion of grandeur no longer an illusion but something that’s real, simple, and wonderful.

I’m sure you can reach this conclusion by yourself, but I’ll say it again: diplomacy is an art that’s the most important aspect of your life.

The more skillful your diplomacy is, the better result you’ll get from every area of your life.

It’s okay to let it go once in a while and scream on top of your lungs and curse and spite the world – but do it alone in your own room where no one can hear you…or even if someone is hearing you, they’re your closest confidant, not someone who’ll betray you at the slightest hint of vulnerability on your part.

Simplistic ideas with major results

Ideas that are simple to implement are often the ones that get us best results.

Then why not embrace that aspect of your life?

You can easily make things complicated.

But in order to do that you always have to start simple.

You start at a point where life is simple enough to be recognized from a mile away.

Your movements will be clearly visible to everyone.

But the moment you start to make it complicated by hiding and taking cover, you’ll make things harder for people who want to try and read you.

Let’s look at what you can do to put yourself in an advantageous position 99.99% of the time.

1) Always find cover and stay hidden

The number one thing I’ve learned by talking to veterans and asking questions about their life is: take cover or die!

There’s no such thing as being bulletproof…it may have been true some 350 years ago, but with the invention of the rifle, this is not true anymore.

You can’t face your enemy head on unless you have a real death wish.

It’s the same thing in civilian life: the moment your movements are tracked, you’ll see your enemy coming at you with full speed while taking you out.

You can’t allow that. You can’t think that your enemy is weaker than you.

In fact, in most circumstances, your enemy will be a lot stronger than you are.

That’s why guns, nukes, and unarmed combat techniques exist.

Drawing on this analogy of war, we can apply it to other areas of life as well.

For instance, in business, if your opponent knows that you’re doing something that’ll potentially hurt their business, they’ll see it coming a mile away.

And as soon as they feel threatened, they’ll develop a counter to what you’re eventually going to do.

So, in order to keep your enemy guessing, build on “take cover or die” and keep your head as low as possible.

2) Mitigate loss by effectively keeping your eyes on the goal

Whatever your goal in life maybe you have to keep an eye on it at all times.

Let’s take an example from the company named Apple

I’m using this example because it’s easy to understand and I can effectively get my point across to most people (and also to borrow Simon Sinek’s words).

Apple has been a company known for its innovation and sleek designs in all of its electronics; they do this by effectively keeping an eye on the prize.

What’s that prize? How to innovate and make products that can help people do a certain thing.

For instance, how to help teachers teach and students to learn.

Contrast that with other companies who are consistently trying to beat their competition; i.e. Apple.

[These are completely profit driven]

They don’t concentrate on making their products the best that they can be, instead, they often copy off of Apple’s design and make it into a benchmark.

And for good reason, Apple is focused on playing the long-term game whereas their competitors are looking to outdo them in the short-term.

Of course, the one playing the long-term game will eventually come out on top!

Why you ask?

Because the more you stretch out a number of resources and time available to play this game, the more opportunities you have to frustrate and weaken your enemy.

Do this until your enemy can no longer muster another attack against you; then you can easily win the situation without much resistance or losing too many assets.

3) Search and destroy

If you’ve ever noticed how the big corporations operate, you’ll come to understand a common theme in their mode(s) of operation.

They acquire any small businesses early on that have the potential to threaten their business and make it an integral part of their strategy to grow faster and bigger.

Google’s acquisition of YouTube and Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp is a fine example of how these acts are performed.

Google saw the potential of searching up tutorials via the use of videos and immediately acquired YouTube in order to stay ahead of the game.

Whereas Facebook acquired WhatsApp in order to keep an edge in the texting and communication world.

Both the companies follow a simple rule laid out in the Art of Warnever let your enemy gain an upper hand.

There’s always something that you can do to mitigate risk and counter your opponents’ move(s).

Always remember, that the moment you cease to learn is the moment you cease to exist.

In order to keep yourself relevant in the game, you need to learn faster because there’s always room for improvement.

If Indians are attacking 3 of our provinces via a proxy war (namely: KPK, Balochistan, and Kashmir) then it’s in your best interest to counter this move with something more powerful and that which the enemy doesn’t expect.

I don’t need to lay out those plans for you, as most of you already understand what needs to be done in order to keep the enemy at bay.

But most of you won’t ever get to live up to your full potential because of the fact that you refuse to learn!

And that you refuse to act in a morally righteous and humble way.

Saying that you’re humble doesn’t make you humble, your actions and interactions with other people make them apparent so.

The most humble and curious will survive the long-term game of life – when they play their cards right.

Conclusion and what’s next…

So, we have looked at how diplomacy can literally change your life.

We’ve also looked at the fact that life itself should be treated like a mosaic or painting that’s worked on slowly and with masterful strokes.

Not every situation will be ideal or favorable to you in any way.

This is evident when we think about what might happen to the brush when we paint with it.

Perhaps having too much paint will get the brush too clogged up to use and we won’t be able to paint with it any longer.

This is similar to how some things in life work better than others, and how some things should always evolve in order to keep their relevancy in your tool kit.

For instance, the automobile is not going anywhere given the astronomical increase in transportation and human population densities.

However, by the same token horses and other animals that were used for transportation are no longer relevant.

Though they exist in the background and live their lives as they would, they cannot be used as a method of transportation ever again.

Similarly, diplomacy is an evergreen asset in your arsenal. One that would never grow old or die.

Because its need is perpetual and effervescent.

It doesn’t fade nor does it require cease of all human interaction.

Because humans will always interact with each other regardless of what happens, this skill will always be needed – no matter what happens a million years from now!

Unless of course, the entire solar system goes “ka-blewie” there’s no way that life on Earth for humans will ever cease to exist.

In order to paint this painting of life in a most effective and sustainable manner, you must look to mentors who have already drawn on their canvas with brilliant resolve.

Learn what tools they use for their life and even borrow some if at all possible.

But if you can’t, then make up your own; in order for you to do that, you must have inspiration and insight from other successful human beings.

What’s next…?

Slow down your thoughts, focus your mind and reflect on the type of stroke that will give you the best advantage in the present situation.

And then act! Make that stroke on your canvas making sure that you won’t regret making it.

Live every day as though you need to make your painting as beautiful and as lively as possible.

[End]

Adding diplomatic strength to Pakistan’s foreign policy

How do we add diplomatic strength to Pakistan’s foreign policy?

The answer seems as if it’s something of a big concern to all parties involved in this intricate dance of life and death.

However, the answers are so simple to implement and so mindbogglingly easy to get our heads wrapped around, that only a complacent idiot or a negligent criminal will ignore these calls for national strength and sovereignty.

Pakistan is a nuclear-armed state that has the world’s strongest and most resilient armed forces.

The ranking doesn’t matter, the fact of the matter is, that we have held off aggression from countries like India, Afghanistan, United States, and USSR.

All in the history of just 70 years or so in Pakistan’s existence!

This is a feat worthy of telling stories about in its own right….

But in order to understand the Pakistani stance here, we have to look at the psyche of our government and how it uses its lackeys to continuously humiliate our national identity in order to preserve its own interests.

Yes, it simply sacrifices the national interests of all 200 million Pakistanis collectively for its own personal gain.

Will you still just stand there and watch as Mr. Sharif and his lackeys erode our national sovereignty due to personal grudges against the people of Pakistan?

Of course, you will because you don’t know how to take your country back from thugs yet.

And that’s okay because we all know that it will take some time to get the government to listen to us the loyal citizens of Pakistan.

If we want anything at all to be done about our present situation.

The average Pakistani is so misinformed that he/she doesn’t have a clue about what’s going on in their lives or around them.

For this purpose, it is your responsibility: the reader, to actively pursue instances of gaining knowledge about Pakistani affairs and reading up on situations which are happening across the country.

If economic uncertainty is something you’re afraid of, then you have to be able to read about finances and how to acquire multiple income sources for yourself.

Citizen Awareness Program is not at the stage where it can provide the good citizens with such capabilities just yet.

But with the combined support of the citizenry, we are positive that we can make a lasting impact in determining how Pakistan should be governed and its national policies broadcast all over the capitals of the world.

Pakistani foreign diplomatic stance regarding regional issues

Pakistanis collectively have decided that India is a hostile, enemy nation which MUST be treated as such.

For this diplomatic stance to hold ground, our government officials MUST be united in propagating this image across the world.

  • Tell the world about the atrocities which the Indian aggressor has committed when Bangladesh was forming in 1971.
  • Highlight the Kashmiri cause and strengthen diplomatically and as well as economic ties with Kashmir as necessary.
  • Treat Bangladesh, and Afghanistan as hostile nations and cut all diplomatic ties with them pronto.
  • Fence the Afghan-Pakistan border and repatriate the Afghan refugees at an increased rate.
  • Stop cross-border trade between Afghanistan and India which is going through Pakistani routes.
  • Or if stopping the trade is not possible, then levy heavy sanctions and taxes on Afghan goods that pass through Pakistan.
  • Treat Bangladesh the same way as we would Afghanistan.

Keeping in mind that Pakistan is a nuclear-armed state, we can threaten these nations whenever we want and however, we want.

We can also commit any act of aggression in Pakistani national interest as WE deem necessary.

The same can be said about India as it is already tagging Afghanistan along for a ride to kill maximum amount of innocent Pakistanis in the Balochistan province and fan the flames of hatred towards the federation on a high-intensity level.

Such brazen acts of violence and outright war cannot go unpunished!

The world needs to understand that dealing with Pakistan MUST be done on equal grounds or when Pakistan is in the position of strength.

It is NOT enough for the Pakistani citizens to change their government and bring in a loyalist government.

Pakistan needs to build up its military in order to keep a strong check and balance on any acts of aggression from countries like India and Afghanistan.

Pakistan also needs to build up its intelligence network to weed out any hostile agenda from any potentially harmful countries like Iran.

Not that we would mark Iran as a hostile enemy, one can never know when the ones we call brother today can turn against us on the behest of aggressors like India and the United States.

Pakistani foreign diplomatic stance regarding international issues

Don’t confuse the international issues with regional issues.

Yes, once you step outside of the borders of Pakistan you’re in international territory, but one must also understand how Pakistan should deal with countries which don’t directly border it and are hostile to it.

European map

European countries like France, Spain, Denmark, and Britain must be treated as hostile nations who have a malignant agenda against Pakistani citizens.

One must not tread too far in order to understand why these countries are on the list here.

The next batch is Asia itself, fortunately, we don’t have any nations which are hostile towards Pakistan, but in the near future, this can all change should the United States and China have a war in the South China Sea.

Asian map and diplomacy with Pakistan

African countries aren’t very much of a threat so we can perhaps layoff Africa or have a neutral stance towards any nation wanting diplomatic relations.

As far as the Middle East goes, except for Turkey, Jordan and maybe Iran, the entirety of the region is hostile towards Pakistan.

Middle East and diplomacy strength for Pakistan

Countries like Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, and the UAE must be treated as hostile nations.

As they have a past record of fueling terrorism and insurgency within the Balochistan province and the city of Karachi.

Israel is the most hostile region of all – we refrain from calling it country since we don’t recognize the Israeli identity.

Israel MUST be treated with high level of alertness and as well as diplomatic and military strength.

There’s no talking to such tyrants, we don’t negotiate with enemies of humanity, thus we HAVE to treat Israel as a region we are at war it at all times.

As far as North American countries are concerned, only United States stands out as the most hostile country in lieu of Israel.

North America and Pakistan diplomatic strength

South American regions are neutral and should be treated as such until further notice (how situations evolve following the war between USA and China).

Friends of Pakistan at the present time…

This topic is a little difficult to write about since Pakistani government has not made any leeway towards establishing diplomatic ties with much of the world’s countries.

However, based on empirical evidence and how the behavior of certain countries has been towards Pakistan we can conclude that countries listed herein are foremost well-wishers and friends of Pakistan:

  • Turkey
  • China
  • Bosnia
  • Azerbaijan
  • Japan
  • Albania
  • Jordan
  • Sri Lanka
  • Russia
  • Thailand
  • Egypt
  • Indonesia
  • Malaysia
  • Brunei

Out of these countries, Pakistan has strong diplomatic ties with Turkey, China, Egypt, and possibly Russia.

Countries like Jordan, Bosnia, Azerbaijan, Thailand, and Albania are very much neutral but don’t hold any hostilities towards Pakistan.

Furthermore, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei and Sri Lanka can prove to be useful allies in the future should Pakistan need to depend on geographical strategic posturing and fluid military movement.

Turkey, China, and Russia have to be treated as the most important allies for Pakistan, as a weakness will invite aggression.

As it already is from the Indian and Afghani side.

Should Pakistan need to rely on Chinese goods, Russian military strength, and Turkish trade, we can apply diplomatic strength in such a way that can allow us to not step on any toes and get what we want as well.

Neutral countries that can be converted to become Pakistan’s friend in the long run

These countries don’t exactly know the history of Pakistan, as much of the world doesn’t…

But these nations can be used as bargaining chips to put pressure on hostile nations like India, Afghanistan, USA, Israel, Britain, and Bangladesh to drop certain stances which harm Pakistan tremendously.

The list is as follows:South America and Pakistan diplomatic strength

  • Iran
  • Bolivia
  • Brazil
  • Germany
  • Tajikistan
  • Kazakhstan
  • Kyrgyzstan
  • Uzbekistan
  • Armenia
  • Morocco
  • Cuba
  • Venezuela
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Canada

The point of listing these nations here is so that Pakistan can further strengthen its diplomatic ties with these countries.

Doing so will help us in negotiating treaties from common tax laws to criminal handling procedures.

Not to mention the flow of resources that would come to Pakistan in case such a wonderful foreign policy ever forms within the next 5 years.

Pakistan can negotiate or renegotiate a lot from this exercise if it plays its cards correctly.

Kashmir issue can also be handled with a diplomatic strength that allows Pakistan to acquire resources and label Indian aggressor as a terrorist state.

Any Indian organizations working inside Pakistan or on behalf of India can be scrutinized and/or expelled based on Pakistan’s economic and diplomatic strength.

This is all relative to how educated and well-informed citizens want to become in the very near future.

The more well-informed and entrepreneurial minded citizens we’d have, the stronger our diplomatic ties with the rest of the world.

Leveraging Pakistan’s immediate allies for regional stability and economic development

Pakistan, as any other country on the planet, has full right to pursue economic interests.

As such, Pakistan has looked to its Chinese neighbor to help build a sustainable economy that can help propel Pakistan into the ‘developed nations’ arena faster than before.

However, the Indian aggressor doesn’t like this move and hence has put measures in place to continuously halt the Gwadar port project which has resulted in countless senseless deaths and further victimization of Pakistan by terrorism.

Economic development of Pakistan is none of India’s business. It should focus on its own human rights violations or be prepared to face the music in the very near future.

Pakistan can use China, Turkey, and Russia – its most immediate allies and well-wishers to further develop its economy.

Turkey is already a country that has bilateral and brotherly ties with Pakistan, in fact, much of Turkish population resembles Pakistani features and culture.

Turkey and Pakistan diplomatic strength

Trading with Turkey and taking advantage of its military and economic prowess can open new opportunities for growth and development for Pakistanis of all ages.

Whether they be male or female can be made immaterial by further borrowing technological advancements from nations like Canada, Japan, and Russia to fulfill any shortfalls.

Iran can be used as an ally to stabilize the Central Asian region.

China has this dual role with regards to Pakistan, but Beijing is more concerned with Washington now that the new President Elect Donald Trump will be coming to power on January 20th, 2017.

Pakistan must look towards its own citizens to help provide resources, and human ingenuity in order to counter any aggression or hostilities from India, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.

Russia is a foremost manufacturer of weapons and technology.

Hence President Vladimir Putin can be asked to invest in Pakistan via way of mutual benefits and friendship.

Vladimir Putin and Pakistan

Russia can provide the much-needed weapons’ technology to Pakistani Armed Forces’ arsenal…

As well as provide with the technological prowess that is unknown to Pakistan.

Trading partners such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and possibly Brunei can help boost Pakistani economy and accelerate its return to the gold-standard.

South East Asia and Pakistan diplomatic strength

Strategic military alliances such as Sri Lanka, Japan, and Australia can boost Pakistani Navy’s operational capability and modernize it faster than before.

Australia and Pakistan diplomatic strength

New Zealand is also a technological hub, so to ignore its capabilities will be very foolish indeed.

Countries like Jordan and Egypt can provide strategic depth to Pakistan’s Middle Eastern adventure.

We can use these countries as launching pads to liberate cities like Medina and Makkah from the yolk of the Satanic house of Saud.

Furthermore, the Palestinian cause can be directly championed and campaigned for in case Israelis get any funny ideas on how they want to deal with Muslims in the region.

Countries like Syria are not important to Pakistani strategical maneuvering, however, should they want to come into the fold, Pakistanis should use the opportunity to further strengthen their militaristic strength.

Understanding the Pakistani mission

As a world class country, Pakistan is committed to peace and stability in the world.

We wish nothing more than to develop and champion the human cause in all aspects of life.

As such, we can’t do this without the help of our citizens and our most immediate allies.

We ask that any non-Pakistanis reading this message consider their stance to be of that of friendliness and congeniality instead of a hostile or neutral one.

Doing so will give you the opportunity to help create a better world for the future generations and contribute to a technological well that is bound to grow should Pakistan succeed in subduing the enemies of humanity.

In order to understand ‘why’ exactly does Pakistan, please head over to our series “Why does Pakistan exist?” and read up on our true mission statement and how we differ from all other nations on planet Earth.

Final thoughts on diplomacy and tying it all together…

We’ve understood what we need to do in order to strengthen Pakistan’s diplomatic strength and economic stability.

We’ve also visited the fact that there are many hostile nations who wish to disintegrate Pakistan and harm its citizenry for racist tendencies.

It is unfortunate that countries like the United States have decided to go against Pakistan and have allied themselves with India.

However, in the near future, we would like the United States to cease hostilities and see Pakistan as an agent of peace and stability in the world.

There are many nations which can be made as close allies or made to have brotherly ties with as well.

These nations can provide Pakistan with much needed technological prowess, and economic growth that has been stagnant in Pakistan for the last 30 years or so.

Citizens of other nations (with the exception of India, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh) can play their part in helping Pakistani cause come to fruition…

And once again establish lasting peace and prosperity for the majority of human beings in the near future.

At crossroads with China, will Pakistan keep up?

Pakistan has let itself get behind in many areas of life

At first, I want to address the very root cause of this: we don’t read or learn as much any more.

That’s why Pakistanis are feeling left out or behind in terms of growth, and progress.

China was a country that got its independence after Pakistan: when it was already a sovereign nation.

Yet, China’s leaders went into a frenzy to make China as powerful as possible.

Needless to say their efforts paid off to a large extent.

However, this was done at the expense of Pakistanis.

Or more accurately, Pakistanis let this happen to themselves.

We opened our hearts and our ports to China, whereas China hasn’t done much for us.

Maybe except just call us an ally and take all the advantages from us.

We provided those advantages to them – plain and simple.

Without the “Silk road” China would still be a pile of destitute drug addicts.

Why Pakistan let China get ahead

Our people are way too trusting and kind-hearted for their own good.

We often can’t read other people and let others take full advantage of us – hook, line, and sinker.

For instance, when no country in the world would bother sending their airplanes to China, PIA was the first international flight EVER to Chinese airports.

We allowed them our trade ports and infrastructure to be taken advantage of.

crossroads with Maoze

Chinese Propaganda Poster

They built their empire on the backs of Pakistani farmers, and then left them to rot.

Our leaders are a bunch of grown up children who don’t read a lick of any book.

All they want are cheap publicity stunts which don’t amount to anything no matter how hard they try.

Pakistan is surrounded by enemies.

I would even go as far as to call Iran an enemy of sorts.

Their leader’s ideology and goals are very different from our own.

And he intends on implementing his political ideology on the world forcefully.

Whereas, Pakistan wanted to do it through trade since its inception.

[But never forget, Iran is a Muslim country nonetheless, so they should get the benefit of the doubt in cases that involve ‘outsiders’]

And yet our leaders let our country slide into an abyss of destruction and chaos.

Rather than providing knowledge, foresight and vision.

China’s ambitions in the South American continent

When you analyze the situation carefully, you’ll come to understand that China is at where Pakistan should’ve been YEARS ago!

When I say “we’re at crossroads with China” I’m not talking about some ideological difference.

I’m talking about an inherently deep-seated, and a problematic mindset that has overturned Pakistan’s every venture for success into a failure.

China is now drilling oil and constructing major pathways in Central and Southern America.

Hoarding gold, coal, uranium and other such resources.

It’s right up the alley when it comes to playing in the backyard of the United States of America.

They’re slowly turning USA’s allies into allies of China.

And they’re doing this by simply offering cash incentives and acquiring building commitments that let their workers enjoy life a lot more.

Granted that China’s vision is near-sighted and they don’t tend to see as far as other nations are concerned.

(They have empty cities sitting in mainland China that have been built on farmlands and by ostensibly crushing their own farmers)

But they’re still at it, grinding away as if they’re the only player in those lands.

So yes, Pakistan is at an extremely dangerous crossroads with China.

Even though Pakistan might think that China is its ally, China has a different thought process.

They don’t see us as allies, nor as equals.

They see us as fools who offered up their lands for open and brazen exploitation by foreigners.

To get out of this quagmire, Pakistan has to think creatively

As Richard Branson and a whole host of other billionaires say: “innovate out of your problem.”

Now that I’ve helped you understand exactly what the position of Pakistan is on the global scale…

It’s time to offer up some concrete solutions that will (hopefully) one day help Pakistan get ahead of the pack once again.

As of this moment, Pakistan is in perpetual survival mode.

We have too many rogue agencies working inside of our country and our government is doing absolutely NOTHING to help strengthen our national security.

So the task then falls to Pakistani people themselves.

If our government won’t help us, then we have to help ourselves.

How many innovative businessmen do you know in Pakistan?

How about you lend them a hand by providing them as much technology as possible so they can help the economy in the process?

The first step of such ambitious thinking is to literally become well versed in the process of learning and acquiring as much knowledge as possible.

Build on strengths rather than weaknesses and then offer your solution to as many people as possible.

You only need one ‘yes’ to make it happen.

After all, isn’t that what life’s all about?
