Pakistan seems to forget crushing
defeats against India
Pakistan and its civilian-military leaders have probably forgotten the crushing defeats at the hands of India during their entire existence and are still showing war-like mood, and that too on Kashmir, they have no business doing so.
India’s action abrogating Article 370 and 35A giving special status and special privileges to Jammu & Kashmir state ended by the democratic process of Parliamentary approval and the President’s signature last month. Since mostly Kashmir Valley area had become a center of separatist and Pakistan-promoted/financed/trained infiltration the government put restriction on movement, assembly and other activities to safeguard lives and maintain peace.
How to ruin a paradise?
Paradise can be made. Paradise can be ruined. The choice is there but it depends on your goals.
There could be greed. There could be zeal for religious expansion and conversion. Corruption is also one of the means to an end for power grab and sticking to it by any means, fair or foul. Perpetuating your own dynasty, without being a monarch, is yet another sure way to ruin a peaceful, beautiful place full of dreams. From Sheikh Abdullah to Farooq Abdullah to Omar Abdullah – this dynasty followed the Nehrus. Both ended in disaster for the state and the country.
