pakistan india escalation
- hi all
i have recently joined this group. i am a pakistani
student and i this mail i will try to elaborate my
point of view about the current escalation of tension
between india and pakistan.
Although i am a pakistani but still i believe that
pakistan has a controversial birth. pakistan was made
as a buffer zone by the falling british empire so that
the rising socialist revolutions in vietnam and china
can be countered. one other point to be noted here is
that the pakistan movement was strengthened by two
factors. firstly it was more or less sponsored by
british government. secondly the feudal class of areas
now included in pakistan wanted to free itself from
the hands of the emerging bougeoise of india. most of
them were hindus and they played the card of religion.
they won the sympathese of muslims by using religion
and arousing there emotions against hindus. they told
them that hindus are their exploiters (along with
british....as they were rulers then). so they
exploited the religious differences present among
muslims and hindus and that was when the actual story
started. although these differences and religious
viloence in hindus and muslims in the sub-continenet
were present even before the britishers came here. and
it has its specific historical perspectives. well its
not time to discuss those issues.
when pakistan came into being, whole of its ideology
was based on haterence for hindus and india. almost
same situation was in india. thats why both states
nurtured large armies. the unresolved kashmir issue
provided the logical basis for the large armies.
it is widely accepted that kashmir issue was left
unresolved intentionally by the britishers due to
their specific imperial interests. pakistan and india
went to war for three times on the issue of kashmir.
thousands of poor soldiers on both sides lost their
lives. but why the kashmir issue is still unresolved?
i think that armies of both sides and the imperialist
powers of world do not want to solve this. they left
kashmir as a buffer zone between india and pakistan.
but as someone said rightly that after 9/11 the world
is entirely different. america has very high aims in
this region. it has captured afghanistan and now can
easily capture the oil resources of former soviet
states. but one thing is still unresolved. china is
another threat to america. now america wants to
counter her. if we look at the current escalation of
tension in this background we can easily conclude
whats going to happen. i think its another american
game because now america wants to solve kashmir issue.
but giving whole kashmir to anyone of the states will
create lot of problems for either of the two states.
moreover america still wants a buffer in the region or
in other words she wants an american colony. so the
plan is to divide kashmir into three parts. one for
india one for pakistan and one INDEPENDENT (hahah
funny and you know what does this independent state
means). but the problem is that armies on both sides
generally and pakistan army specifically are resisting
the plan. as this will create lot of problems for army
domestically and moreover the status which army enjoys
will be in danger. so i think the main reason behind
the current tension is that america india coalition is
trying to encircle pakistan so that they can force
pakistn army to accept the plan and moreover they are
creating environment to ensure that poeple on both
sides themselves say that the kashmir issue needs to
so i think thats the whole story. i am not an
international affairs analyst, i am a simple
petty-bourgeoise class student. a common man of
pakistan. so thats all what i can say.
moreover i want to add that i and the group i belong
to is against war and will always oppose it with
words, with actions, and are trying to strengthen the
LOVE AND PEACE TO ALL
