Amidst the election season in India, the Modi government is poised to carry out yet another ‘staged drama’ on the fourth anniversary of the Pulwama attack that took place on 14th February 2019. Reports suggest that India is planning a vehicle-type attack in southern districts of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, targeting military sites in Pulwama, Kulgam, Islamabad and Shopian, with the intention of pinning the blame on Pakistan and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
However, Pakistani intelligence has exposed the Indian false flag operation, leading to a likely embarrassment for India. In its quest to disrupt regional peace and undermine Pakistan, the Modi government is yet again resorting to such hollow tactics before the nine crucial state-level elections scheduled this year, whose outcome will decide the fate of the country’s 2021 Lok Sabha election.
The Modi government is willing to use Indian soldiers to win elections, regardless of the bloodshed it would cause. Barack Obama remarked in The Promised Land that India’s electoral success is fuelled by anti-Pakistan sentiment. Udit Raj, a Congress leader, alleged in January 2022 that Narendra Modi was involved in the planning of the Pulwama attack, while The Wire reported in 2021 that leaked WhatsApp chats belonging to Arnab Goswami back the claim that the Modi government had orchestrated the attack.
Moreover, on October 27, 2022, the Indian Defence Minister stated that they would be looking to forcefully occupy Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan. Lt General Upendra confirmed on November 1, 2022, that the Indian Army was ready to launch an offensive against Azad Kashmir. All of these recent statements and actions are intended to foster a climate of war to disrupt peace in the region.
The Modi government wants to end the ceasefire agreement by justifying the false flag operation. Therefore, any false flag operation can be resorted to target Pakistan.
