According to the defense analysts peace in Afghanistan is important despite the start of new Cold War between Russia and USA, expelling Russian ambassadors from Britain and increasing tussle between Europe and Russia. They are astonished by the decision of Trump to impose sanctions on Pakistan with the announcement of new Afghan Policy. According to these defense analysts, the pressure over Pakistan to pressurize Taliban for negotiations is not understandable because in past America herself have been sabotaging Pakistan’s efforts for negotiations with Afghan Taliban. Now Afghan Taliban have lost their trust over Pakistan. Moreover, resistant fighters have established their separate groups in Afghanistan who are being led by those youngsters who have never been in contact with Pakistan. These fighters have not only been part of Afghan National Army but also got training from Americans as well. The attack of Afghan Air Force over a Madrasa in Afghanistan where a gathering was arranged to distribute certificates among the 10-year-old children who have learned Quran by heat i.e. Hafiz Quran. In the attack of Afghan Air Force, 100 children were martyred. This was the worst tragedy since the American invasion of Afghanistan. However, Americans did not condemn it. While Afghan govt. Said that such incident did not happen. On the shameful statement of the Afghan govt. thousands of Afghans declared to take up weapons against Afghan govt. After this Afghan President Ashraf Ghani announced to start investigations of the tragic incident.
People of Qunduz rejected the investigations of the Afghan govt. Saying that Afghan govt. is not serious in punishing the culprits because until now neither any arrest has been made nor any progress has been visible. In such situation when American policy of delaying the solution of problems and failed govt. machinery is fueling lawlessness in Afghanistan. The pressure on Pakistan shows that America wants to impose Indian supremacy and role of India in Afghanistan. However, this has nothing to do with the peace in Afghanistan. In order to make Pakistan accept nefarious American designs, such tactics are being used that directly hit the integrity of Pakistan.
