Pakistan’s Efforts and Challenges for Peace in the Region


The Pakistani narrative is gaining traction throughout the globe. Pakistan’s attempts to bring about peace in the Middle East, Afghanistan, and other parts of the globe have received praise and widespread recognition. Indeed, Pakistan experienced severe economic, political, and social losses as a result of the Afghan War over four decades. Pakistan is eager to share its experiences and is making every effort to advance peace on a global scale.

Pakistan is making every effort to stabilize Afghanistan. It is a nation that has endured enormous suffering over the last 40 years. Pakistan hopes for peace between the governments of Russia, China, the United States, and Afghanistan.

Central Asian trade would increase if Afghanistan had peace. Afghanistan would also develop as a trade route for the whole region. People in the bordering Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province will gain if there is peace in Afghanistan. Pakistan has fulfilled its responsibilities with regard to peace negotiations. During the hostage crisis, Pakistan was able to assist in the safe release of two of the three Western captives.

Pakistan has established itself as a mature, responsible, and peace-loving country. Pakistan’s visionary leadership has taken a number of actions to promote peace and stability. One of Pakistan’s major achievements in Afghanistan has been its ability to get the Taliban to sit down and negotiate with the Americans. Pakistani leaders traveled to Riyadh and Tehran to ease tension between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Pakistan aids in easing tension between the US and Iran. With the purpose of easing tension, Pakistan’s foreign minister has visited Iran, Riyadh, Oman, and the US. Pakistan has the knowledge and clout to arbitrate disputes between parties in the interest of peace and resolving issues.

On the other hand, India presents an entirely different picture. The hardline ideology known as Hindutva, which was founded by those who supported racial superiority and were influenced by the German Nazis, had seized control of New Delhi. The fact that the extremist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has gained control of India and informed the international world that extremists are ruling the nuclear-armed nation is a great disaster for the region.

The fact that India has been taken over by the RSS, an organization that also killed the great Mahatma Gandhi, is tragic for India and its neighbors. The people of Kashmir have been under siege for decades while radicals are leading nuclear power.

The RSS philosophy is founded on hate for Muslims and other minorities, including Christians, in the same way as the Nazi ideology was built on hatred for minorities. Similar to the Nazis in Germany, India is constructing prisons. In actuality, there are parallels between Nazi and RSS ideologies. Hence, one should anticipate a similar result or worse. The world first heard about what is occurring in India through Pakistan. India is no longer a democratic or secular nation. The RSS was a political movement that was established in 1925, greatly expanding and developing the ideas of the German Nazis.

It is important to note that both India and Pakistan are nuclear-armed states with sufficient stockpiles of weapons to destroy one another entirely. Suppose the international community continues to play the spectator role. In that case, it might result in a major catastrophe that affects not just India but also Pakistan, all of the surrounding countries, the whole region, and the entire world.

While the catastrophe in Kashmir was considerably worse, western nations place more value on their financial interests. Due to India’s enormous market, there has been a lackluster reaction to the plight of minorities in India and the eight million people living in Kashmir. Nonetheless, the majority of people in these nations support peace and protest against Indian crimes in Kashmir and against its minorities. The general population worldwide denounced India’s record-breaking human rights atrocities.

The UN, the international community, and all those who value peace are urged to reach out to India and take the necessary steps to reduce tension in the area.
