The correlation witnessed between India and Pakistan in the last six decennium can be described as an endeavour without any mean. Without hesitation both countries are in a domineering posture to defame one another in the attainable opportunity. India’s stances are in a commodious position compared with Pakistan.
This is because India has the better ground reality than Pakistan in terms of economy and democracy without relying on other countries. Due to Pakistan inability to place its Generals – it is suffering and could not make peace with her neighbours particularly with India, without consulting the army. Hence, Pakistan does not have sustainable development; it would not move an inch forward in terms of collective prosperity.
Pakistan in the last six decades utilized all its zenith strengths to depose India for their wrong perceived strategic interest. Pakistan now looks very tired since its expectation would not materialize. Pakistan has flunked to glean any lesson from its erstwhile history, it’s a disadvantage. Every step Pakistan tries to aggravate India, Its back fired on Pakistan. Along with the US, Pakistan budded Mujahedeen to barrage the Soviet acquisition in the Subcontinent during the Cold War, now Pakistan is facing those heats in the form of terrorism on its own soil. The terrorist attack on the military school at Peshawar purged more than 141 children, which would be a late-breaking example of the Pakistan vulnerability. This evinces that more Pakistan takes action on their terrorist they turn their wrath on Pakistan more. This is because; Pakistan can’t dare to go down to the root of terrorism. Pakistan is taking a lot of initiatives in the Baluchistan region but not on Taliban. So is not able to undo the zip between the military, ISI and with religious extremism.
The illustrious and strategic coalition between their military, ISI and religious units are even menacing the pivotal foundation of Pakistan. However, the revelation of Pakistan about this menace would be very minimal. The best example would be the late-breaking India and the Pakistan peace manoeuvre. The Indian Prime’s visiting Pakistan without any disclosure, would be seen as giving more urge on his counterpart Nawaz Sheriff.
Modi’s strategic defiance posturing menace to Nawaz, since he could not evince the equivalent kind of rebalancing with the Indian ruling elite. Modi’s short stay in Lahore can be viewed in different strategic angles. However, even it was taken utterly the Pathankot attack aggregates the trust deficit between both the nations. Shortly India and Pakistan will get the award for the longest standing scuffle from the United Nations (UN). Now the buck stops at the terrorist attack on the Indian naval base at Pathankot, would not allow both countries to move forward with full strength. While Modi was the prime ministerial candidate, he reprimanded the Congress Party’s administration initiatives with Pakistan that both terrorism and peace process cannot budge together. Now Modi has to answer the opposition why he is appropriating steps to move with Pakistan while the cross border terrorism on a continuing mode?
Though Pakistan announced formally that – they would adduce the Pathankot perpetrators to lawfulness would not be nabbed beneficially until they evince on it. Because the 2008 Mumbai attack was lively seen by the whole globe, but still the precise master mind of the attack Hafiz Saied and others are freely organizing rallies and hate speeches against India. Pakistan prevails to be the gazers on them would reinforce India’s negative public opinion against Pakistan. At the same time the factuality of the inquiry process has raised many disbelieves against Pakistan and they are still not able to formally acknowledge the FIR names on the Pathankot linked Perpetrators.
However, the Advisor to Pakistan Prime Minister on foreign affairs Saetaj Aziz’s recent interview to a Indian media gave some hope on this case. Aziz said to India Today editor, “one of the mobile phone numbers linked to the attackers was traced to the terror group’s headquarters in Pakistan’s Bahawalpur” report by The Statesman. This would be the first time a Pakistan official accepted such kind of sensitive matter formally. Now both countries abide to engage at any cost, as described by many scholars would be interesting to look forward. At this stage Pakistan must act on the Mumbai and Pathankot perpetrators to get India’s full cooperation for extending the peace initiative. Otherwise, the pleasant factor would not stay longer.
Pakistan should on board their generals, ISI and their religious leaders towards the peace process with India. Further, Pakistan should accommodate their opposition parties also to get the bipartisan hinge on this would energize Nawaz Sheriff Initiatives. On the other side Modi also should engage with the major opposition parties before moving forward on Pakistan matter. Many scholar writes about the only way forward would be to engage with Pakistan could be accepted as the available policy from the present Indian elite. However, what India intends to gain on this Endeavour is really a question without Pakistan’s commitment on the question on terror. Otherwise the main argument would get strengthened that India was bow to Pakistan’s terror. The last six decades Pakistan uses terrorism against India as their state policy would still concern for India. Now Pakistan must evince to prove it erroneous to her accusers that it has come out of its past.
The media report suggests that the next meeting would take place out of India and Pakistan, which would be a great appeasement for both countries. However, now the ball is on the Pakistan court. Pakistan has to answer for the Mumbai and Pathankot attack case progress. And also Pakistan cannot prolong by saying that they still require more evidence for them to avenge the mastermind of the attacks. This would prove Pakistan’s inability to deal the religious extremists. It would strongly stir the Indian side and reflect in domestic politics as well. If so, this dialogue would not move forward due to the lack of sustainable support, but would further trigger for huge setback than at least for a feel good factor to think of the next stage.
The present convergence of India and Pakistan for peace cooperation seems to be looking positive. However, it seems to be more a beginning without an end. This is not good for both the countries particularly as neighbours. Time is ripe for Pakistan to realize that how for this would go with the failure approach by the trick of hate its own neighbour once both are the children of one mother called Hindustan.
