“India’s Political and Military Elites: Reckless Disregard of Kashmir Crisis Brings Immediate Danger!”

The highly irresponsible attitude of Indian politicians and military leadership using bilateral affairs in relation to Pakistan to push rhetoric for mere political/ election campaigning has continuously earned a bad name for the Indian government. Recently, Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut said the abrogating of Article 370, which ended the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, by the Narendra Modi government was only on paper and was done to serve the political interests of BJP. On the other hand, the Indian/ BJP government has been advocating the illegal move, debating that it has revitalized the socio – economic life of the troubled territory. The mismatch in Indian political leadership views points towards lack of political consensus on one of the most important matter which has been the reason of three wars and potential nuclear flash point. It is a well-known fact Indian politician, media and Army acts as propaganda tool of BJP fascist regime. Indian government, media and Army is in habit of making anti-Pakistan insinuations as a matter of routine. In November 2022, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh made an absurd claim regarding Gilgit Baltistan being part of India while addressing a rally Kangra, Himachal Pradesh. He said PoK is also needed in India now. Indian Ex-Army Chief Gen V K Singh recently said that the Indian army’s plan to take over Gilgit-Baltistan is ready and further said Gilgit-Baltistan belongs to India. On 5th March 2023, a Haryana Cabinent Minister Kamal Gupta said that “We were not strong before 2014, but now we have become strong. Pakistan has occupied our territory in PoK. Voices are also being raised from there to join India.” He further said that “At any moment in the next two-three years, PoK will become a part of India and this will be done under PM Modi only.” Indian politician and Army has a short memory with regards to its military humiliations, pertinent to mention two recent military adventures with Pakistan and China. On 27 Feb 2019, Pakistan Air Force downed an Indian MiG – 21 aircraft and captured Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman after the plane crashed in Pakistan- administered Jammu and Kashmir. Chinese forces re-enacted the events of 1962 humiliation for India. During the 1962 war, the entire Arunachal Pradesh (South Tibet) was occupied by the Chinese army and Chinese army came down till Tezpur, Assam. In May 2020, Chinese army in a shocking move landed troops in Galwan Valley, Pangong area Ladakh and captured an area of more than 1400 SQ KMs without firing a single bullet. Moreover, Chinese army added injury to insult by releasing a video in which Indian army soldiers are being severely beaten in hand to hand flight. Indian government must take serious view of the growing tendency in its politicians for resorting to direct false accusations against Pakistan for political point scoring in domestic politics.
