INCREASING INDIAN ANIMOSITY TOWARDS PAKISTAN – 3

17 March 2018 Mumbai: Increased animosity towards Pakistan in Indian Army

Pakistan Army has been continuously under pressure from Indian offensive not seen since 1972.  Referring to Ceasing of hostilities between India and Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir must be on Indian terms, Indian Army chief Bipin Rawat on Friday said: “It must be on Indian terms.”

He indicated to a rise in cross-border firing by India as part of a larger Indian strategy to exert pressure on Pakistan, as reported in the international media. The Indian Army Chief said, “So, we have raised the ante by resorting to cross-border firing, which is leading to violations of the ceasefire. Earlier, the burden was only on us to man the border and remain alert and now the Pakistan Army is facing the same pain. They also have to now remain alert on the border.”

India will Punish

General Rawat said, “Pakistani posts supporting infiltrators must be punished” and asserted that “the increase in the ceasefire violations had compelled Pakistan to deploy more forces along the Line of Control, which was earlier in the hinterland or peace postings.”

Recalling the years when borders were relatively calm and the ceasefire agreement was in force, General Rawat said, “Despite this, the infiltration continued and there was no pressure on the Pakistani Army which aided and abetted infiltration across the LoC.”

The Indian army chief was speaking at an event organized by the Vivekananda International Foundation. “Let me assure you, it is not just the Indian army which is (alone) facing the brunt. The people sitting across the LoC are suffering far more damage than what we are suffering,” the army chief said.

Bleed India Policy increasing Animosity towards Pakistan

We in Pakistan should remember that bleeding India with a thousand cuts is good when the Indians are on back foot and counting on minimizing casualties. However, this time they are more inclined in replying us with the same language, intensity, and vengeance. When asked about the “continuing infiltration despite Indian forces showing deterrence”, General Bipin Rawat termed it as a “cheap option” by Pakistan. He, however, cautioned if Islamabad raised the “threshold”, New Delhi would have the option of going to the next level.

“And I think Pakistan is just about ensuring that they do not raise the threshold, but then the call as to when we want to raise the threshold rests with us. It is in our hands to raise it, depending on how high we want to do it,” he said. This is a clear threat which our ISI chief, Lieutenant-General Naveed Mukhtar might like to have a look and reassess his posture.

Pakistan’s ‘bleed India with a thousand cuts’ policy—while Pakistan Army has been denying that such a policy exists—is in fact in shambles. India has sustained the losses, with no perceptible weakening of resolve or strength. Jihad proposed to tackle India and sustained by ISI has become an ugly word the world over. China’s recent decision to stall a ban on Jaish-e Mohammed’s Masood Azhar by exercising a ‘technical hold’ at the UN somewhat muddies these waters, giving ISI’s jihad proponents, a faint hope that support exists somewhere. However, Chinese support is evanescent—it has to be noted that China was silent after Uri attacks by Jihadi group sponsored by ISI is significant.

Regular ceasefire violation by Pak Army

Ceasefire on Indian Terms

The ceasefire between India and Pakistan must come only on Indian terms which mean Pakistan has to stop supporting infiltration in totality, the Indian army chief said. “You want a ceasefire and we are willing to go for a ceasefire but you stop supporting and infiltrating (militants) into our country. If you stop doing that we are willing to do that until then forget there is any ceasefire” he said.

“So it must come on our terms. And those terms will come when they find that we have the potential to raise the ante. Gradually, if this does not work, we can keep calibrating and raising the ante, till they find it that they cannot take it longer,” Rawat said.

Pakistani Bluff

Pakistan Army has been showing Chinese made civilian drones in videos and terming them as Indian Drones which have been shot down. However, Indians have never thought these claims even fit for a reply as they do not have any civilian especially Chinese made drones in service.

Final Word

Pakistan’s long drawn strategy to bleed India with a thousand cuts has gone too far. We have taken this un-Islamic war against India for no rhyme or reason. Pakistan Army started various policies and started propaganda war to alienate India. This was because once the relations with India if improved Pakistan Army will lose its relevance and Pakistan will move out of the hands of Pakistani Generals. Indians are now paying us back with vengeance and we are losing our young boys because of the sins our Generals did in the past. Today entire world considers that every Pakistani as a terror suspect after the way we protect international terrorists in Pakistan. Our government is not only cheating us but also trying to cheat the entire world. We have to guard our future in the coming elections. Pakistan should go to vote and not bow down to the Jihadi parties.

INCREASING INDIAN ANIMOSITY TOWARDS PAKISTAN – 2

Visas for 806th Annual Urs

India is yet to grant visas to Pakistanis wishing to attend the Urs of Sufi saint Khawaja Moinuddin Chishti at Dargah Ajmer Sharif in Rajasthan from March 19-29, said the spokesperson for the Ministry of Religious Affairs on Friday.

Pakistanis wishing to attend the 806th annual Urs of the Sufi saint at the 12th-century shrine in Ajmer ─ considered to be among the holiest Muslim shrines in India ─ were to leave for India on March 18. India has not granted a single visa as it considers these visits by Pakistanis make way for Jihadis to enter India and terror financing.

Pakistanis have been permitted to take part in the Urs according to a 1974 agreement between both countries which allows people to visit holy sites on either side of the border.

Every year around 500 Pakistani devotees attend the urs of the great 6th-century saint ─ also known as ‘Gharib Nawaz‘, or the patron of the poor ─ who introduced the Afghan-origin Chishti order, which preaches love and tolerance, to Punjab and Rajasthan.

The MoRA spokesperson told DawnNewsTV that the government is in “constant communication with Indian authorities for the timely issuance of visas”.

He warned people wishing to attend the Urs to refrain from traveling to Lahore until a categorical decision is made in the matter.

Look out

Gen Zia’s strategy to bleed India with a thousand cuts has gone too far. We have taken this un-Islamic war against India for no rhyme or reason. Indians are now paying us back with vengeance. We have to guard ourselves and stop being so naive. India considers today every Pakistani as a terror suspect after the way we are treating Indians in Pakistan especially their diplomats. We released a fake video a day back and called it as a way to harass our diplomats which has fallen flat in the international community. Our government is not only cheating us but also trying to cheat the entire world.

INCREASING INDIAN ANIMOSITY TOWARDS PAKISTAN-1

16 March 2018 Mumbai: IMPPA Statement

Animosity between Indians against Pakistani artists has been increasing leaps and bounds.

 

In a new wave, the IMPPA (Indian Motion Picture Producers Association) has demanded a ban on work permits to all Pakistani artists wanting to work in India. This was not new however this time the requests to the government were not verbal. IMPPA President TP Agarwal directly wrote to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking a ban on account of sacrifices by Indian Army Soldiers.

A couple of days ago, IMPPA also demanded for visa restrictions to be amplified and requested ban on issuance of visas to all Pakistanis. Due to this the stress level among Pakistani actors has increased manifold. This may impact the foreign exchange crisis to Government of Pakistan.

Request to PMO India

According to the letter, the IMPPA has demanded PMO, India for a ban on all Pakistani entertainers in the Indian film industry in totality. “It is our request to the government of India to bar the work permits of all Pakistani artists working in different departments of the Indian film and music industry,” it reads. “Not only as entertainment professionals but also as Indians, we are immensely hurt by the rude behavior portrayed by Pakistani artists with regard to Pakistani terrorism. This will send a strong message, not only across the border but also in India, that when it comes to the dignity and sovereignty of our country, we Indians stand united in our quest to safeguard it.”

FWICE Statement

This is the second time this week such demands have been made. Earlier this week, the FWICE (Federation of Western Indian Cine Employees) also pushed for increased restrictions over Pakistani TV channels showing Indian shows. The world knows that Bollywood financing starts with underworld connections and somehow leads into Pakistani ISI. Pakistan controls most of the underworld operating in Mumbai and hence has inroads into decision making thus giving most opportunities to Pakistani artists when compared to Indian artists due to pressure from underworld dons with pro-Pakistani lineage.

Speaking to freelance journalist regarding these developments, Chaudhry Ejaz Kamran, a senior official from Pakistan Film Producers Association and chairman of the Pakistan Film Distributors Association confirmed, “The Indian showbiz industry stands united to bar Pakistani artists from working within Bollywood but it is a shame that even after this, Indian films are allowed to release in our country. The Pakistani government should consider the circumstances and put a ban on the release of Indian films in our cinemas so we can also spread a strong message amongst our people. Our film industry has been revived and is also establishing itself in a better place now. Therefore, for the welfare of our local cinema, we should take the relevant steps.”

Look out

It may be noted that Indian films have been selectively banned in Pakistan unless financial links are monetarily benefiting Pakistan. Since Pakistan has great potential and talent should ban Pakistani artists from working in Indian projects. Will this solve the issue our artists are paid peanuts back at home. They go to Bollywood for better avenues. If Indians are banning our lads and girls then there is a reason to it. Gen Zia’s strategy to bleed India with a thousand cuts has gone too far. Indians are now paying us back with vengeance. We have to guard ourselves and stop being so naive.
