If after the passage of 71 years, Afghan rulers are not ready to end their conspiracies and enmity against Pakistan then any hopes of improvement in future are useless. The irony of fate is that enemies of Pakistan especially had such facilitators from within Pakistan who worked for them and never got ashamed of this. The conspiracies against Pakistan started with the partition of India in 194 when Sardar Abdul Ghaffar Khan of KPK (former NWFP) demanded a separate state of Pakhtunistan consisting of NWFP and tribal areas. He got famous as Sarhadi Gandhi. He never felt insulted over being called as Gandhi but he considered himself as equivalent to Mohin Das Gandhi of India. This might be his self-image but his friendship with Nehru, Gandhi and other Congress leaders was not a secret. This friendship forced him to oppose Muhammad Ali Jinnah and the Two Nations Theory which was converted into stubbornness after defeat in the referendum for inclusion into Pakistan. This is a strange situation that at this time Afghan govt. supported him that a separate state of Pakhtunistan consisting of the areas under the Durand line should be formed. The pact of the Durand line was signed as a result of the skirmishes between the British Army and tribals. After defeat in the referendum, the difference of opinion of Sardar Abdul Ghafar converted into hatred and the hopes of Afghanistan died as well.
The second part of the enmity against Pakistan started after 14th August 1947 when Afghanistan rejected to acknowledge Pakistan as an independent state. Kabul and New Delhi prepared the map of Greater Pakhtunistan. In order to execute this conspiracy, Sardar Abdul Ghafar Khan alias Sarhadi Gandhi and his son Sardar Abdul Wali Khan presented his services. Sardar Abdul Ghaffar Khan was appreciated in India. This is a separate story that how Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani’s National Awami Party in East Pakistan became the identity of Sarhadi Gandhi and Wali Khan in 1957. People in the Western Pakistan having inclinations towards communism joined this party. During the era of Zulifqar Ali Bhutto, this party was banned as a result of a suit filed in Supreme Court of Pakistan for treason and this party was converted into National Awami Party to continue its activities. However, respect of Sarhadi Gandhi in India for creating hurdles in the construction of Kala Bagh Dam is a bitter reality. He was given the PRISONER OF CONSCIENCE AWARD in 1962 by India. In 1967 he was given the JAWAHAR LAL NEHRU AWARD and BHARATRATNA award in 1987.
However, after the Soviet invasion and successful resistance from Afghan Mujahideen in 1979, Sarhadi Gandhi lost all the hopes of Greater Afghanistan. He made the will that he should be buried in the Nangarhar area of Jalalabad Afghanistan. According to his will when he died on 20 January 1988 at the age of 97, his dead body was taken from Peshawar to Jalalabad and buried there.
Whenever, one talks about the agenda of the Soviet Union to access the warm waters, leaders of Awami National Party and supporters of communism get angry. Soviet Leaders of that era openly accept this agenda. After the withdrawal of the Soviet Army, American manufactured Taliban who was into power according to the needs of the USA. When the differences developed between the USA and the Taliban, America invaded Afghanistan under the cover of the presence of Osama Bin Laden and 9/11. Taliban were ousted with the help of the Northern Alliance. The links between the Northern Alliance and India, paved the way for the Indian role in Afghanistan. In 2002 India established consulates near the borders of Pakistan which were actual secret centers. In these centers, youth from the Pakistani tribal areas were brainwashed in the name of Tehreeek Taliban Pakistan (TTP). The real strength of these terrorists was the secret hideouts having narrow passes and difficult approach. After waging the terrorist war in Pakistan in the form of suicide bomb blasts, enemies of Pakistan had not imagined that Pakistan army will crush their trained terrorists in their hideouts, not only these terrorist camps were destroyed but the fence over the Afghanistan border was erected as well to stop the invasion of the terrorists as well.
From here started the Plan-B of the enemy. Manzoor Pashteen, Mehsud and other persons involved in politics in the universities of KPK in the name of ANP were given the plan of Pakhtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM). First, these persons were taken to London and other Western countries for the training with the support of the different foreign NGOs. Their anti-Pakistan sentiments are polished than they are sent to KPK in order to fuel the hatred in the name of Pakhtun racism. The names of Manzoor Pashteen, Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir got publicity in January 2018 when a youngster named Naqeebullah Mehsud was murdered in a fake Police encounter in Karachi and his heirs protested against it. The above-mentioned people were busy in fueling racism in Peshawar since 2016. Afterward, through planning, they were given coverage in the media. Now Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir have been arrested for attack over a check post in North Waziristan in which 4 soldiers were injured while one soldier was martyred. On the other hand, Afghanistan is printing and publishing such Calendars in which on one side there is the picture of Manzoor Pashteen while on the other hand there is the map of Greater Pakhtunistan that was prepared by the Sarhadi Gandhi including the areas of Balochistan, Gilgit Baltistan and KPK has been shown as part of Afghanistan. The point to be noted is that Manzoor Pashteen is not such a big leader that his pictures should be published on Calendars and posters. This printing and distribution of such posters and calendars show that enemies of Pakistan are hatching conspiracies against Pakistan in which role of Manzoor Pashteen will be of great importance. There is a possibility that Afghan Intelligence Agency NDS and Indian RAW are planning to murder Manzoor Pashteen so that the allegations of Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir against Pakistan army can be supported. This might lend some support to the Manzoor Pashteen’s appeal to UNO for interference.
