Prime Minister Imran Khan has been warning the world and global leader that India has intended a false flag operation like “Pulwama Attack” to establish a base against Pakistan for an attack. PM Khan has been repeatedly warning through social media, public addresses and interviews given to various national and international news agencies and channels.
Kashmir is the major unresolved dispute between India and Pakistan which has sparked four wars (1948, 1965, 1971 and 1998). In 1948, Jammu and Kashmir were divided between India and Pakistan. Pakistan controls part of Kashmir, Gilgit and Baltistan. India holds much of Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh.
It’s been 9 months Indian Occupied Kashmir is under strict lock down. On August 5 2019 India revoked Article 370 constitution that guarantees special rights to thestate, including the right to its own constitution and autonomy to make laws on all matters except communications, defense and foreign affairs. India has deployed additional 38,000-armed personals in addition to existing 800,000 soldiers political leadership arrested,basic human rights are suspended, free movement of people is restricted, arrested thousands of people, patients have no access to hospitals, electronic, print media and social media is banned, cellular service and internet are disconnected. Kashmir is cut off from the rest of world and people are spending lives in prison.
Pakistan has always promoted and supported the Kashmir cause, PM Imran Khan while addressing the UN General Assembly session 2019 one of his key agenda was Kashmir. During his address he clarified to the global leaders Pakistan’s position on Kashmir, how can India alone decide any major change in the status quo, which is not agreed by both countries, this was violation of UN security council resolutions which India has committed. He highlighted the brutalities committed by Indian army on civil population, 100,000 Kashmiris are killed, women are raped, people are in prison deprived of basic human rights and world remained silent
India has always blamed Pakistan for insurgency and attacks in IOK, India claims that Pakistan has training camps where militants are trained and launched in IOK to destabilize peace. Indian Air Force claimed that they have destroyed terrorist training camps in Balakot air strike.It was confirmed by open sources satellite imaginary by Atlantic council, Digital forensic lab, Australian strategic policy institute and European space imaging that India did not hit any target of significance on Jaba hilltop in the vicinity of Balakot, International press and military observers were taken to the site to witness the false claim of IAF.
.In Pulwama attack India blamed Pakistan, whereas Pakistani authorities asked for proofs instead of providing proofs they bombed in Balakot. Pakistan has provided reasonable proofs to Indian authorities by exposing RAW network in Baluchistan and capturing Kul Bhushan Yadav who admitted to crimes. Pakistan has proven to the world that India is the mastermind behind unrest in Baluchistan. Indian’s former military officer admitted in a television program his connections with rebellious tribesmen which are very few in number. Baluch people are loyal to Pakistan and are ready to sacrifice their lives for motherland. State has zero tolerance policy for traitors and our security forces are dealing with them in the best possible way. Pakistani forces have won the long unprecedent battle against terrorism and restored peace in the country.
In year 2020 India has violated cease fire multiple times and every time received befitting response. The worst part is Indian forces are targeting the civil population living in the vicinity of line of control. Many civilians have lost their lives, their domestic animals are killed and homes are destroyed. Pakistani authorities have invited UN observers to witness these heinous crimes of Indian Army, every times Indian side showed stubbornness and arrogance.
India must find the real reason why incident like Pulwama, Uri are happening in Kashmir instead of blindly accusing Pakistan, why people are lifting weapons, why people have distrust in Indian Government, why people have developed radicalized thoughts and behaviors. People of Kashmir want their right of freedom, their right to live, their voice must be heard. If India will try to suppress their voice it will echo louder and louder.
India must understand the root cause of all issues is Kashmir, as long as Kashmir issue is not resolved peace will never be achieved by both nations. The Kashmir issue must be resolved under the light of UN security council resolutions. If a conventional war is started between two nuclear armed nation then anything can happen which has impacts far beyond just two countries.
