NOT only Pakistan but all the countries in the region are well aware of India’s planning and sponsorship of terrorist activities, as everyone has direct experience of it. However, recently a multi-published American magazine in its investigative report has called India the world’s largest terrorist country and a threat to world peace.
The American magazine has repeated the same things that Pakistan has been saying to the world in a civilized manner for a long time, but the Indian alliance with Daesh is surprising to the world. Pakistan has been presenting Indian terrorist acts to the world with evidence, but after the confirmation of the American magazine, the reaction of the world may be different. Now, India will try to distort the facts, but no such attempt can succeed, because India’s face is painted with the blood of innocents.
Pakistan has long been a victim of Indian terrorism. The arrest of Kulbhushan Yadev is a great proof that Indian intelligence agencies are sponsoring terrorist organizations. The UN monitoring team also confirmed that these organizations were involved in cross-border terrorist attacks against Pakistani military and civilian targets. Pakistan has submitted several pieces of evidence of Indian terrorism to the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee, alleging that India was involved in attacking Pakistan and obstructing the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) by financing and organizing mercenary terrorist organizations. India has used terrorism as a weapon against all its neighbors as well as the citizens of occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
In this context, the world is well aware that India is the biggest terrorist in the present era, but the United Nations has created a picture of helplessness, while the European Union and all other international organizations are playing the role of a silent spectator. The silence of international organizations makes sense that non-Muslims are powerful there, but the indifference of the Muslim Ummah to the atrocities against Kashmiris is painful. Pakistan raises its voice against atrocities on Kashmiris at all levels. Prime Minister Imran Khan is highlighting the Kashmir issue on all major platforms of the world. Pakistan is in favour of allowing Kashmiris to decide their future, while India is against giving Kashmiris the right to self-determination.
While India continues to carry out terrorist activities in Pakistan, including Kashmir, the list of Indian operations on the Line of Control is long. So far, thousands of unarmed, innocent Pakistanis have fallen victim to Indian terrorism. Despite this, Pakistan has proved to be a peace-loving country and presented the facts to the world, but the world has remained silent. The international community seems to be reluctant to take legal action against Indian civilian and military personnel involved in state terrorism and crimes against humanity in Occupied Kashmir.
What a great threat Indian aggression is to the world, the American magazine has clarified and also exposed the nexus of Indian government with terrorists. Now the world will have to break its silence of interest and play its role in stopping the Indian aggression; otherwise, all oppressed and exploited nations may resort to armed struggle for their protection.
