Indian Plan to make Pakistan a desert and Our Oral Protest!

Indus Water Treaty, signed in 1960, brokered by the World Bank that, with conditions, allocated the three western rivers —Indus, Jhelam and Chenab to Pakistan and the three eastern rivers —Ravi, Beas and Sutlej to India

                The political chaos in Pakistan is not going to end. Administrative mismanagement is on peak. Whether small roads or highways we see a strange confusion, haphazard traffic and encroachments. Rulers take Metro Bus or Orange Train projects as the way to serve Pakistan. Ruling elite is unable to realize that people do not have medical facilities and pure food. Milk prepared with chemicals, sub-standard ghee; although courts have issued orders for manufacture of impure food items but public do not have any hopes about its implementation. People are dying in the hospitals on the cold floors. Education for children is beyond power of purchase. Nation is so much busy in making both ends meet that they are unable to realize the plans of eternal enemy of Pakistan.
                In the tension between states war is considered as the only solution but when it is impracticable, enemy tries to find other ways to achieve its nefarious designs. Nuclear weapons of Pakistan and possibility of a befitting reply in case of any aggression India has avoided direct aggression or war but executing different plans to weaken Pakistan internally for last two decades. However, the basic target of Indian plans had been to stop economic development of Pakistan. In this regard, terrorism is just one aspect which has created hurdles in the economic development of Pakistan.
                The loss of lives as the result of suicide bomb blasts cannot be imagined in the monetary values but they damaged Pakistani economy for more than 300 billion US dollars. After 2002, the economic loss of Pakistan as result of terrorism might have bankrupted any other country but Pakistani agriculture economically supported Pakistan in war against terrorism. In the way Pakistan army concentrated on curbing the terrorism and destroying their hideouts across the country this was only possible due to the stable economy standing on the pillar of agriculture.
River Chenab in IOK.  Fearing that India is buying time to complete its two disputed water  projects, Pakistan made it clear that it would not accept any modifications  or changes to the Indus Waters Treaty (IWT)

                Keeping in view the series of failures in the plan to weaken Pakistan through terrorism India chalked out the plan to destroy Pakistan’s agriculture by stopping / stealing the water of Pakistani rivers. Rulers of Pakistan did not pay any heed to this water aggression of India. Whenever the construction of any big dam over Pakistani river was reported, Pakistan considered oral or written protest as enough. Govt. got some how active due to pressure by media but India kept working on the construction of dams by tricking Pakistan into negotiations. In this way India completed many dams.
                Exploiting the criminal silence from Pakistan, India started the plans to turn the rivers of Pakistan; Pakistan realized that if India succeeds in stopping the waters of Pakistan than agriculture would be destroyed. But this thinking or concerns remained confined to newspapers, analyses and editorials. Not only in Pakistan but analyses were published and presented on international level as well that what would be the consequences of shortage of water for Pakistan. It was even forecasted that next war between India and Pakistan would be on the issue of water. It is obvious from the Indian plans in the way India is acting upon plans to stop the waters of Pakistan, the war between both the countries would be inevitable.
The Kishanganga  Hydroelectric Plant is part of a run-of-the-river hydroelectric scheme that  is designed to divert water from the Kishanganga River (which is called  Neelum River in Pakistan) to a power plant in the Jehlum River basin

                Recently this has been reported as well Pakistan has written letter to World Bank for resolving the water dispute between India and Pakistan by ensuring the implementation of Indus Waters treaty. India is violating this treaty. Pakistan has stern concerns over the Kishan Ganga and Rattli Hydro Projects of India because they will minimize the flow of water to Pakistan to such level that agriculture of Pakistan would be devastated. India is rejecting concerns raised by Pakistan and wants that unbiased experts from World Bank should investigate the project who should decide after hearing the stance of the both parties.
                Pakistan is  not ready for this commission because this commission will not have any powers and India will not be responsible to accept or act upon the report of this commission. Pakistan wants World Bank to establish mediator court so that this issue can be resolved forever. In this regard meetings between World Bank representative Ian H. Solomon met with Indian Foreign Minister and Minister for Water on 05 January 2017 in New Delhi so that this dispute might be resolved. India presented the stance that the concerns raised by Pakistan are technical so only technical experts may propose a solution. World Bank has been told that it should not make any haste in this regard for which World Bank has given the time of one month in which both countries would try to chalk out a solution mutually.

                Pakistan has also contacted USA to interfere as guarantor of 1960 Indus Waters Treaty and stop India from violation of this treaty. USA has replied that both countries should resolve this issue through negotiations. The reality of the negotiation is that since independence of Pakistan, India has exploited negotiation just to lend time not to resolve any issue and this is what India wants now that India continues her construction work while Pakistan keeps on protesting. Once the project is completed no one can order the demolition of dam.
                Similarly this happened in case of Baglihar Dam of Pakistan. When dam was completed, Pakistan contacted International Court and such lawyers were selected for the perusal of case who were not interested in winning the case. So court decided against Pakistan on which Pakistan only protested on the media. Similar situation is developing now. Indian Prime Minister is openly threatening Pakistan that not a single drop of water from the rivers of Kashmir will be allowed to goto Pakistan. These threats of India are not only political statements. India has the capability to execute these threats because she know that no matter how much Pakistanis make hue and cry and protest, the well wishes, gifts and mango crates from Pakistani rulers would not end…

Pakistani Woman Imprisoned in India and her Little Girl!

In Pakistan Edhi sahb  protected deaf-dumb Hindu Indian girl Geeta as his own daughter

                Geeta was only 11 years old when she mistakenly crossed border and arrived into Pakistan. She was deaf and dumb by birth due to which she was unable to tell about her identity and citizenship. She was taken by Pakistani soldiers on border patrol. They tried their best to know about her; however, when they could not succeed they handed her over to an  NGO for Missing children. From there she was handed over to the Edhi Homes Karachi. Wife of Abdul Sattar Edhi realized from her activities that she is Hindu; so she cared her as a Hindu. Edhi (late) took her himself to the temple (Mandir) so that she may perform her rituals. On the occasions of celebrations of Hinduism she was given new dresses and other things as Hindus do; however, despite of all this Edhi remained concerned that how he may return Geeta to her parents.
                In 2011, Edhi contacted Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad. Indian High Commissioner visited Edhi Homes Karachi, met with Geeta, took her pictures and sent to India so that her parents may be traced out. In this situation, Pakistan govt. provided full support to Indian High Commissioner so that the deaf and dumb girl may be returned to her parents. Although after meeting Geeta Indian High Commissioner was sure that Geeta is a Hindu Indian girl but despite of all this Indian Foreign Ministry remained reluctant in taking Geeta back to India. However, on the pressure of Indian media after four years Indian govt. accepted to take her back while she had turned 20 years old.

                On 26th October 2015, when Mrs. Edhi arrived New Delhi along with Geeta, whole India was celebrating it. Indian Prime Minister also met with Mrs. Edhi and offered her cheque bearing one hundred million Indian Rupees for Edhi Foundation which was returned by Mrs. Edhi that this happiness is enough for her that Geeta has returned to her homeland. Afterwards, Indian Prime Minister called his counterpart Mr. Nawaz Sharif and thanked for the cooperation. Despite of tensions between both countries, Indian PM was forced to call Pakistani PM because due to the cooperation extended by Pakistan and reluctance of India this issue has been highlighted on international level. Pakistani wanted to resolve this issue as soon as possible on the basis of humanity.
                On the other hand when any daughter of Pakistan is wrongfully confined in India neither Indian human rights organizations nor Pakistani organization for human and women’s rights raise their voice. Even those NGOs who remain no stone unturned in favor of Indian terrorists sentenced by Pakistani courts they have only one stance that they want to minimize tension between both countries by releasing Indian terrorists; even they are silent now. Due to such like activities of such NGOs few years ago Kashmir Singh, Gopaal Daas and Sarjeet Singh (Indian Intelligence operators and terrorists) were released from Pakistani prisons despite of the fact that they were responsible for murder of hundreds of innocent Pakistanis through terrorist activities. Even Justice from Indian Supreme Court wrote letter for release of Gopaal Daas. But for the Pakistani woman and her innocent baby girl imprisoned in Indian Prison, Indian Supreme Court is dead silent and unable to take any action.
Indian Prime Minister had   pledged to donate 10 million Indian rupees to Edhi foundation, that Mrs Bilquis Edhi refuse to accept.

                The news about Pakistani woman Robina imprisoned in Indian Prison at Indian Held Kashmir for last four years along with her baby girl came to the light when a lawyer Shafqat Hussein from Indian Held Kashmir informed media about her. Shafqat Hussein met Robina first time in 2012, when she was being transferred to Kot Bhalwal Prison in IHK. Robina told him that she is Pakistani citizen from Hyderabad who visited New Delhi for treatment of Asthama along with her husband. Suddenly, her husband went missing in New Delhi, her passport and other documents were also in his possession.
                With help of people she succeeded in reaching Wahga border but as she did not have her passport and other documents so she was arrested by Indian Police. Mir Shafqat Hussein, Lawyer from Indian Held Kashmir presented all the evidence in the court but due to the complexities in the court procedure, after such a long time Indian Held Kashmir High Court ordered release of Robina and her little girl to be released and handed over to Pakistan. When these news came to Pakistan, Chauhdary Nisar, Interior Minister of Pakistan ordered NADRA Pakistan to collect information about Robina so that her nationality as Pakistani may be confirmed and she may be brought back to Pakistan.
ISLAMABAD Interior  Minister Chaudhry Nisar took notice of a Pakistani women and her daughter  languishing in Indian jails since 2012.

                Indian govt. is not providing any support in this regard. According, to the lawyer of Robina, if Indian govt. creates any hurdle in her release than he will have to file the contempt of court. The statement of the lawyer, it seems that India is not ready to release her. Another, important question is that where is the husband of Robina? Has he himself gone missing in New Delhi or taken by Indian Secret Agencies?
                Such like incidents are nothing strange in India. Before this Imran  Yousaf Chipa and his wife Sofia Kanwal were kidnapped to India from Katmandu Capital of Nepal by Indian Secret agencies. There they were imprisoned under the allegations of entering into India for terrorism while they went to Kathmandu for Honey Moon. They were inhumanly tortured and asked that confess in front of media that they are agents of ISI and entered into India to kill Narindra Modi than they will be spared. However, due to the struggle of their relatives and Human Rights Commission in India they were ordered to be released by Indian court due to non availability of evidence against them.

Tripartite Conference for Peace in Afghanistan!

Pakistan, Russia and China   An Emerging Coalition

                Few years ago no one was in the position to imagine peace in Afghanistan without USA or any conference without USA for peace. All this has become now possible when other countries of the region realized that every peace attempt was sabotaged when it was about to bring peace in Afghanistan. It became clear that peace in Afghanistan has been conditioned with interests of India and USA. Everyone knows that lawlessness and terrorism in Afghanistan has resulted in worst devastation and terrorism in Pakistan. The basis of lawlessness and terrorism in Afghanistan was laid by USA as well. After withdrawal of Soviet Union in Afghanistan, the Afghan Mujahideen groups were pushed into civil war for ulterior motives of America.
Kabul voiced displeasure   over the planned trilateral meeting between China, Russia and Pakistan on   Afghanistan in Moscow

If we look at the history, the eviction of refugees from Afghanistan started after withdrawal of Soviet Military when Afghan Mujahideen started fighting with each other. In few months the number of Afghan migrants rose to more than 3 millions. With the arrival of Afghan Migrants, the path for war lords for smuggling of weapons and drugs became wide open. Smugglers entered into Pakistan without any hurdle or checking increasing the supply of drugs like heroine and Kalashnikovs. The heroine and Kalashnikov culture waged less destruction than the US supported Taliban’s coming into power in Kabul. USA brought Mujahideen from all over the Arab world, especially USA’s most favorite Osama Bin Laden and his influence in Taliban govt. The dispute between USA and Osama which according to some analysts was the design of CIA after which the 9/11 tragedy occurred which changed destiny of the whole world. America devastated Afghanistan as the only Super Power. After 2001, not only Afghanistan but Iraq, Libya also were devastated to ruins.
The Taliban have welcomed  Russia's growing role in the Afghan peace process but other actors take a  dim view of Moscow's activities and the Russia-Taliban honeymoon.

In this whole devastation or war against Muslims USA was supported by 2/3 world including Western countries. Exploiting the presence of Americans and Western allies, India also reached Kabul so that she can execute her nefarious designs against Pakistan. Exploiting the open Pak-Afghan border the terrorist started by India against Pakistan is no more a secret. In this whole situation Russia and China remained practically indifferent. Soviet Union was concentrating at achieving her last status before her disintegration while China wanted to strengthen her defense and economy remaining indifferent to the international disputes. In the ten years Russia became powerful enough to challenge USA once again and China gained economical status to prove her value in the international affairs. In this era Russia and China both emerged as big powers due to their mutual understanding over the international disputes.
Chinese, Pakistani and  Russian officials say they were driven to joint action by the efforts of ISIS  affiliates to establish a foothold in Afghanistan.

First on Ukraine and afterwards on Syria, Russia took stern stance against USA. But far more than this is the Conference of Russia, China and Pakistan for restoration of peace in Afghanistan, Western countries British, France and Germany etc. avoided to react over it however, non-state reaction displeasure from India and USA was reported. In the joint statement the two things were reinforced; 1) Afghan Taliban’s demand that USA wants them to start negotiations with them, stop resistant against foreign forces but USA is not ready to remove their name from the list given by UNO in which Taliban leaders have been declared as terrorists. America has been always avoiding revising the list. While the joint declaration issued from Moscow has laid emphasis that as permanent members of UNO Security Council they demand UNO to remove the name of Afghans included into the list of UNO so that they may play important role in the peace process in Afghanistan. 
Afghan police walk past  Islamic State militant flags on a wall, after an operation in the Kot  District of Jalalabad Province East of Kabul.
The second important aspect of Tripartite declaration is the presence of ISIS in Afghanistan. Neither USA nor India has any concerns over presence of ISIS however, China and Russia has expressed their concerns over the issue. Satisfying Muslims of Xianjing in China have been always a problem for China. Due to narrow mountainous area, it has been developed as rest of the China has been developed. However, due to the CPEC trade route Xinjiang will develop rapidly as well. During this process China does not want that ISIS to create any problems. Russia has been facing uprising in Chechnya since long. Pakistan has been facing worst terrorism since long as well; in such a situation peace in Afghanistan is the need of the hour for Pakistan, China and Russia not for USA and India…
