Seeing Sushma speak with such passionate authority and her bureaucratic Sancho Panzo sitting alongside asking the media to come out with ORIGINAL QUESTIONS no wonder INDO-PAK TALKS HAVE BECOME Opera of the Absurd.
INDIA SAYS: Let us talk if EGG (terror) CAME FIRST (and please don’t talk of the chicken). PAKISTAN SAYS: No, no, no. Let us talk if chicken (Kashmir) came first and let the matter about egg (terror) be discussed much, much later.
Thanks to Nehru’s Original Sin of creating a cancer where there was none by taking the Kashmir issue to UN, today both India and Pakistan are pulling in different directions willing to destroy each other.
PAKISTAN WANTS KASHMIR BADLY even if it means destroying itself by getting neck-deep into purveying terrorism. QUOTA INDIA on the other hand says hum bi dubenge sanam tumhe bi lekar dubenga magar kashmir ki samasya ko nahin suljayenge. (WE WILL NOT ALLOW KASHMIR TO BE RESOLVED either to your satisfaction or to ours)
Pakistan says if that is the case HELL WITH decency and COMITY OF NATIONS. “WE will use terror to liberate Kashmir come what may.”
Yet a foolish India says IT WILL TALK ONLY ABOUT THE SYMPTOM (terror) which is the only weapon Pakistan has to bring India to heel.
Like quotas being used to treat backwardness India is treating the symptom (terror) giving medicine to bring the ailing India-Pakistan patient to good health.
INDIA by IGNORING Kashmir TO FOCUS solely on TERROR IS acting LIKE A DOCTOR OPERATING A PATIENT IN THE HEAD FOR the HEADACHE that follows from INDIGESTION..
PARADOXICALLY, Pakistan seems sincere to resolve Kashmir this way or that by trying to bring in THIRD PARTY MEDIATION following unending deadlock. INDIA SAYS no third party on Kashmir as it is a bilateral issue WHICH IT IS NOT since INDIA was the one that TOOK THE CANCER TO THE UN.
INDIA AND PAKISTAN CAN NEVER resolve the Kashmir PROBLEM because one is going to be feeling cheated if the other gets the benefit of seeing the problem resolved.
Mountbatten is said to have driven Nehru silly in making him rush to UN with the Kashmir problem and for this treachery he got his comeuppance. [For destroying a fledgling Indian nation Nemesis punished Mountbatten by killing him in a BOMB BLAST that ripped him to pieces]
Probably Nehru left to his own wisdom would not have run to the UN. Of course one really can’t say about Nehru. But Mountbatten’s role in chopping India into two (as QUOTA POLITICIANS later did extremely well post-Independence) is a fact. WHAT INDIA REALLY FEARS IS if it agrees to third party mediation as demanded by Pakistan then Mountbattens of today could repeat the same horror by handing J&K to Pakistan on a platter.
Kashmir was legally acceded to India as per international norms and as per the UN convention itself and everything went well until the Pak invaders entered Kashmir LOOTING AND RAPING AND PILLAGING. Any idiot would have known that THE SIMPLE SOLUTION WAS TO KICK INVADERS OUT as one would do to someone entering our house without permission.
BUT A VICIOUS Nehru stopped the Indian Army from kicking the invaders out for reasons best known to him and ALLOWED Pakistan to hold on to 1/3rd of Kashmir which has grown into a MIGHTY CANCER TODAY.
THE PROBLEM WITH QUOTA DISEASED INDIA IS THAT our own netas have proved to be our curse when we — of all religions and faith — reposed faith on them. Nehru showed how nicely it can be done by quotaising and secularising an unsuspecting INDIA.
AND THE CURSE OF NEHRU badgers us today. Pakistan is in no mood to forgive EVEN IF IT IS WE WHO COMMITTED THE ORIGINAL SIN OF TAKING KASHMIR TO THE UN CLEANERS.
