Kashmir What happened and what should happen?
Kashmir What happened and what should happen?

  • Kashmir: We can divide the Kashmiris' independence movement into four phases. The first is the period of armed struggle of Pakhtun tribesmen and Kashmiris immediately after the formation of Pakistan. The second is the period of political struggle from 1950 to 1980 when people like Syed Ali Gilani and Syed Salahuddin were also peaceful. They were trying to achieve their goal through struggle and electoral process.
  • The third phase is the duration of the armed struggle by jihadi organizations from the 1980s to the 9/11 and the fourth is the duration of the oppressed people's struggle after the 9/11. He used Europe to force Pakistan to avoid his patronage.
  • After that, if any jihadi organization took any action, it was presented by India in such a way that despite the sacrifice, that action caused harm rather than benefit to the Kashmir cause in the broader context. So after that the Kashmiris had only the option of oppressed people's struggle and Pakistan had the option of diplomacy.

  • An opportunity for Pakistan to liberate Kashmir in terms of war (Sino-Indian War of 1962). The hand came but at that time General Ayub Khan in his friendship and love with America did not take advantage of it.
  • The best opportunity in diplomatic terms came after the nuclear blasts when poets like Vajpayee were the Prime Minister of India instead of the fanatical Modi from an extremist party like the BJP. Apparently, but unfortunately due to Pervez Musharraf's Kargil adventure, that series came to an end.
  • The second rare diplomatic opportunity came after 9/11 because the United States needed Pakistan at the time, and General Pervez Musharraf said he had sided with the United States to save the Kashmir cause, but President Bush's guest at Camp David. Despite being special, he could not use the US on the Kashmir issue to get any concessions from India to the Kashmiris.
  • After Pervez Musharraf, another diplomatic opportunity came to Imran Khan but it seems that that opportunity was also wasted. The basis of my claim is that some fundamental changes took place when Imran Khan became the Prime Minister. Under Musharraf, Zardari and Nawaz Sharif, Pakistan faced terrorism so badly that it could not focus on any other front, but Imran Khan came to power at a time when the monster of terrorism was huge. To some extent it was under control.
  • The second change was that after the martyrdom of Wani, there was a pure internal and popular uprising in Occupied Kashmir and with the complete cessation of interference from Pakistan, the world was seeing that it was a purely internal and oppressive struggle to market the world. It was relatively easy to do.
  • The third major change came in the form of the aggressive Hindutva policy of the BJP and Modi, which not only made minorities insecure within India but also unveiled secularism in its extremist face. The biggest change was that for the first time since 9/11, the United States clarified its policy of withdrawing from Afghanistan because of Donald Trump, and for that it needed Pakistan's help, which Pakistan provided.

  • This is the first time since 2001 that the United States has become dependent on Pakistan for the Taliban. Thus, Pakistan could have used it as a bargaining chip in the case of Kashmir and India, but unfortunately due to inexperience and lack of seriousness, Imran Khan's government failed to use all these factors in its favor and for Kashmir.
  • There were two reasons for this failure. The first was the selection of an incompetent and inappropriate team and the second was Imran Khan's inexperience and miscalculation. Making Shah Mehmood Qureshi the Foreign Minister was the first big mistake because even being the Foreign Minister, foreign affairs was not his priority.
  • They are always dreaming about internal politics or they are worried about not fulfilling that dream. The choice of Ali Amin Gandapur for Kashmir affairs and now Shehryar Afridi for the Kashmir Committee are two more prominent examples of this because if no one takes them seriously inside Pakistan then why would anyone take them seriously in Kashmir or on the world stage?
  • Now the team was not leading and Imran Khan himself had no experience in these fields, so at first he misjudged Modi's intentions. Then before the Indian elections, he wished for Modi's success. Then he misjudged the thinking of the United States and Donald Trump.
  • When Donald Trump left the mediation forum in July, Imran Khan became embroiled in the misconception that he had sided with the United States in a meeting, even though the United States had already fixed a match with India because of the Taliban on the western border. In response to accommodating Pakistan, he will support India on the eastern border. Thus, the celebration of the "successful" visit of Imran Khan and his associates to the United States on their return from the US tour was not over yet when the Modi government completely annexed Kashmir on August 5 by changing the status of occupied Kashmir.
  • Then he waited until September for the UN General Assembly to go there and complain to Trump and he would pull Modi's ear, but there Trump started advising him and by attending the Howdy Modi Convention in Houston with Modi. He conveyed the message that he is with Modi.

  • The second forum for diplomatic pressure on India could have been the Islamic world, but even in this case, Imran Khan acted with fanaticism. Statements in favor of Pakistan and Kashmir came from Turkey, Iran and Malaysia instead of any Arab country but then we kept on appeasing the Arab countries. Then when he refused to convene an OIC meeting despite our requests, Khan went to Malaysia and made a statement against the OIC, angering the Arab countries as well.
  • Thus, even in the case of the Islamic world, Pakistan has fallen victim to a state of "neither here nor there". Thus, one year has passed since the Modi government made occupied Kashmir the world's largest prison, but He could not alleviate the sufferings of Kashmiris.
  • In order to formulate a new statement on Kashmir according to the new situation, it is necessary for the entire Pakistani leadership to sit down with the Kashmiri leadership and formulate a policy and strategy at the national level. ?
