As of today, India faces serious External as also Internal Security Challenges. The situation requires tough handling with EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES which should have been implemented with clear thinking for results and success. Unfortunately in spite of our varied Threats the handling of the situation has remained poor and pathetic due to an increasing LACK OF KNOWLEDGE/AWARENESS with NO COHERENT STRATEGIC POLICY or a Well Thought of Response towards any situation that daily confronts us. Why is this? To my mind it is being lazy and a couldn’t care approach due to our Structural Deficiencies and Ignorance in the minds of the People who are Elected and run the Process of Governess in Parliament. I have certainly tried to highlight as to what is happening to a large percentage of the People who represent us, who do not understand the problems facing the Country and how they should react? I also seriously suggest that we would require Certain Amendments to the Constitution which must be carefully studied and be updated as this is the Requirement of the Day. Our Constitution is not sacrosanct and must be studied by an Expert Committee which would place the changes on the Floor of the House. Most Politicians by and large praise the present manner of functioning as it suits their comforts, but there are analogies which certainly require a re-look to us her GOOD GOVERNANCE. One sometimes wonders if our Politicians who are responsible for laying down the Strategy for Defense Matters, Foreign Policy or to improve the Economy of the Nation, whether they can even differentiate between a Mortar from a Motor, A Gun from a 25 Pounder or a Guerrilla from a Gorilla??!!! While Good Governance must be the Prime concern for the People of India, unfortunately this has not been so. The Government and Parliament must show to the people of the contribution they generate and further ensure and help in developing the Economy and more so focus on removing CORRUPTION FROM THE TOP TO THE LOWEST LEVEL WITHOUT ANY HESITATION in order to elevate the Cultural and Moral Values for our Citizens especially our Women and the Youth. Sad to say- you cant today get anything done without a show of extra profit for the Doer as also the Giver. The message to ALL must be Loud and Clear that if the Rights of the People are denied to them- be prepared for a Cascading effect on the Country with People even coming out on to the Streets. I say this after sensing the mood as it exists today and with the diversity of Extreme Poverty and lack of Opportunities which coexist with OBSENE WEALTH on the other side. It would appear to me that India has already been Partitioned once again – for the Poor and Down trodden on one side and for the Rich and Famous on the other who never desist from showing their wares till they are in HANDCUFFS.
Jamaatud Dawa Chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed Threat to Country
India’s Political environment today demonstrates a big Divide. Potential violence exists in the Country which now shows the signs of its augmentation from outside for which immediate correction is required. Unfortunately with Pakistan’s designs and Hafiz Mohammad Saeed ready to create disruption in the Country and more so in JAMMU AND KASHMIR we have to be prepared. What with the cross border firing and infiltration that is taking place by rouge elements under SAEED’S directions. We are under severe Threats both Internal and External. The Internal Threat of People crossing over our Borders and billeting themselves right across the Country from Kashmir to Kanyakumari is an extremely serious matter of great concern. They have the means and where withal to melt into our Polity and Surface as and when directed by their Handlers from abroad. What about the recent happenings in Kashmir where Kishtwar burns where our Government rules out, any external or terror link to the communal clashes that have engulfed the Jammu region which spreads venom from both sides and ultimately culminates in riots amongst groups of People. In Kishtwar the Muslim Community is in a majority and we must ensure their Protection. However one cannot forget the 1947 Partitioning of India, with Jinnah batting strongly for a MUSLIM PAKISTAN which was so easily agreed to by Jawahar Lal Nehru. India never batted for a HINDU INDIA. Certainly Jinnah was adamant for a Separate State for Muslims which was created as, Pakistan. The People of Undivided India were however given the liberty to decide, irrespective of Religion to take the choice of their Permanent Residence. In 1947 Approximately the India side of the Count at Partition was 33 Crores of which 9% were the Minorities.
Today Separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani along with his Pak mentor HAFIZ SAEED says that there is an effort to change the Demography of Muslim majority places in Jammu. He has further stated that the People of Kashmir are protesting and the Administration is quelling them with force, and even killing the Protestors. Protests are the natural right of the People and this will continue. Geelani feels that the Government of India has also tried to do the same in the Valley as well. Has he forgotten the Kashmiri Pandits who are even today living in Camps and their houses are no longer belonging to them? Does he want to carve another Terrorist State?? Our message to him as also PAKISTAN IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH we will no more bear the Partitioning of Hindustan once again. Geelani talks of change of Demography, what does he mean? Is he aware that in the 2008 census India’s Hindu Population including Sikh, Buddhist, Jains and Christians was approx 86 Crore and Minority Population of Hindustan was approx 25 Crore. The People of Hindustan have never challenged this abnormal growth of our Population which grows at 13.7 % per year and Hindu Population at 7.67 % per year. Today we talk of Kashmir where the Kashmiri Pandits were barely 3.96% of the total Population of Kashmir Valley, who were an integral part of India, who have been ethnically cleansed by their dear Sufi Muslim Brothers. Has any Secular Warrior ever shown any concern about the miseries inflicted on these hapless Hindu’s in their own Country? I am glad that Chidambaram stated that we will not allow the repetition of 1990; everybody will be protected in the area in which he or she lives. Would Chidambaram also consider bringing back all the Kashmiri Pandit Migrants back to Srinagar and Jammu before his term runs out? As also return to them their properties which they left behind??
The Principal Streams for Conflict which presently dominate the Indian Internal Security scenario are Extremism and Terrorism, Left –Wing (Maoist) insurgency and ethnic Fundamentalism and Militancy. In one of the assessments, it was indicated that as many as 254 of India’s 640 districts are afflicted by chronic conflict variables connected with these Threats. Of the 254 districts 182 are afflicted by Left Wing extremism of which 57 are located in India’s North East and 15 in Jammu and Kashmir. Along with this, sporadic attacks have also being executed across the length and breath of the Country by Pakistan – backed by outside Islamist terrorist Groups including one attack by an incipient extremist group by the Hindu Right Wing.
The Path Hafiz Saeed Takes
Islamist terrorism overwhelmingly supported by Pakistan finds its Principal Operations in Jammu & Kashmir with progressive expansion through Terrorist Mobilization, Subversion and Attacks across the Country. “It must be noted, that within the Quran a clear distinction is made between Jihad – which includes legitimate warfare- and Fasad, which involves unwarranted disruption and violence. The current trend in Islamist terrorist violence corresponds more closely to the concept of FASAD than that of JIHAD.” India has throughout been confronted with Pakistan backed Islamist subversion since the twin birth of the two nations Hindustan and Pakistan. This has resulted in thousands of fatalities. Pressure to decrease Terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir worsened rapidly once the Pakistan’s Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) handlers under the PAK Army came into play as also since the Nawaz Sharif regime took over. Today the K Plan is being successfully implemented by the Pakistan Prime Minister to the last tee, but Hindustan sleeps and the PM is dumb founded. India must now tackle the situation with an Iron FIST. A steady stream of Islamist terrorism and subversion is widening across India over the past few months commencing with the beheading of our Soldiers in the area of Poonch. Indian Terrorism in Kashmir has been unambiguously Islamist, despite its pretensions that it is being initiated by Indian cadres, who are Sub Nationalists. Remember the 1993 Mumbai blasts which were engineered by an Indian Organized – Crime Group – The DAWOOD IBRAHIM GROUP.
Today we cannot overrule the possibility of MUSLIM FASADI’S even spreading their tentacles into our Armed Forces. Let us wake up – Our Submarine’s go down the drain. We must immediately check and filter any FASADI’S who may be today infiltrating into our guts.
Urban- Rural Population
It would also be seen that rampaging and poorly managed Urbanization has also created new and urgent security challenges because of the Urban- Rural Polarization. Urban vulnerability to Political destabilization, terrorism, organized criminal violence, and administrative disorders is today one of the most underestimated aspects of the Urban Development Plans in India.
Today there is also a growing comparison between India’s, China’s and Pakistan Army’s strengths. I do not want to give a detailed account due to Security, but would want to Table out the ratio of Armed Forces to Population of the three Countries and would we not want to substantially increase our Defense Budget immediately?
|Country||Population||Number of activeDuty Uniformed Soldiers||Ratio Population per Soldier|
Utterances of Hafiz Saeed
Jamaatud Dawa chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed while addressing his Independence Day rally in Lahore, demanded the setting up of an Independent Judicial Commission to investigate if he was a terrorist or not? He accused India for calling him a terrorist and stated that, an independent judicial commission comprising of senior lawyers and judges from India and Pakistan should investigate whether he was guilty. Whatever verdict the commission announces he would accept. He stated this while addressing the “Takmeel-i-Pakistan Caravan” held to mark the Independence of Pakistan.
The rally reflected the anger of the JUD leaders and workers against India over continuous shelling and firing by India in Pakistan’s territory in various Sectors of the Line of Control (LOC).
He further stated that the on-going firing and shelling into Pakistani areas by Indian troops was a matter of grave concern and this irritates him and he would be soon forced to respond in the same way.
THE JUD CHIEF BECAME HARSH WHILE REJECTING INDIA’S DEMAND. HE ADDED “YOU (INDIA) LOOK TO BE VERY EAGER TO GET ME. DON’T WORRY I MYSELF WILL VISIT INDIA AND IF I VISIT YOU (THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT) WILL NOT STAY THERE,” HE WARNED.
Hafiz Saeed certainly wants to internationalize the issue. He further warned that India has ruined them by regularly releasing floodwater into Pakistan every year. He blamed India for generating electricity by using Pakistan’s water unlawfully. He also was sure that India was behind the Bomb blasts in Pakistan, mainly in Balochistan killing innocent Kashmiri’s.
Saeed called the LOC firing an Indian trick to force Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to hand him over to Delhi. He urged Sharif not to make India a friend unless it confessed all its crimes.
He announced that he was ready to make India a friend, but prior to that Indian Troops must avoid firing/shelling at the LOC and killing innocent freedom fighters in Kashmir.
Pakistan must be told in NO ambiguous terms that unprovoked firing is not conducive to resume Talks. The Pakistan National Assembly has also passed a resolution condemning aggression by Indian Forces across the LOC. They have also condemned India’s so called attack on the Pakistani High Commission Premises in New Delhi and to add salt to our wounds they pledge to continue to extend Diplomatic, Political and Moral Support to the so called Legitimate Struggle of Kashmiri’s for realization of the goal of Self Determination!! The Punjab Assembly in Pakistan has also challenged India’s alleged violation of LOC by them and desires to raise this in THE INTERNATIONAL FORUM.
I would like to warn Pakistan not to get into this type of a rhetoric, the People of Hindustan are Religious and upright thinking individuals who can die for their Honour and Country. The question of Manmohan Singh meeting Nawaz Shariff on the side lines during the UN General Assembly was wrong thinking by Unbalanced Brains. The meeting should never have been held. Let Pakistan first of all honour the sanctity of the LOC only then we think of further action.
It was not India that annexed J&K. The PAKI’s appear to have short memories and forget that the then Maharaja specifically asked India to send its Troops in order to crush the KABALIS attack across the Kashmir Borders. J&K had then a Muslim majority but was ruled by a Hindu. On 2 October 1947, the National Conference met under Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah’s Presidency and took the decision to support the ACCESSION OF THE STATE TO INDIA. The decision was conveyed to Nehru by the then, Secretary General of the All India States People’s Conference.
The Maharaja was advised by his Advisors, that a landlocked country such as Kashmir would be soon get engulfed by Foreign powers such as the USSR or China.
At that time The Gilgit Scouts had already staged a rebellion in the Northern Areas of Kashmir State which was then under British command; as a result, of which some parts came effectively under a part of Pakistan (which has since been administered by Pakistan). SUBSEQUESNTY TRIBAL KABAILIS (MEHSUDS AND AFFARIDIS) FROM THE NORTHWEST FRONTIER INVADED KASHMIR PROPER.
Mountbatten advised the Maharaja that Kashmir should accede to India before India could send its troops. HENCE, THE, THE MAHARAJA SIGNED THE INSTRUMENT OF ACCESSION TO THE DOMINION OF INDIA. THE INVADING TRIBAL KABAILIS SPREAD INTO J&K; THE MAHARAJA SIGNED THE INSTRUMENT OF ACCESSION TO THE DOMINION OF INDIA ON 26 OCTOBER 1947. SHEIKH MOHAMMAD ABDULLAH HAD ALREADY REACHED DELHI ON 25 OCTOBER TO PERSUADE NEHRU TO LOSE NO TIME IN ACCEPTING THE ACCESSION AND DISPATCHING INDIAN TROOPS TO THE STATE. (SHEIKH ABDULLAH CORROBORATES THIS ACCOUNT IN HIS AATISH E CHINAAR AT PAGES 416 AND 417) AND RECORDS THAT V.P MENON RETURNED TO DELHI ON 26 OCTOBER WITH THE SIGNED DOCUMENTS.
THE PRINCELY STATE OF JAMMU & KASHMIR, THUS, CEASED TO EXIST ON 27 OCTOBER 1947 AND BECAME A PART OF THE DOMINION OF INDIA WHICH REMAINS SO EVEN TODAY.
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has said no Prime Minister can revoke Article 370 of the Constitution granting special status to the state “without calling into question” it’s Accession to India. The STATE OF JAMMU & KASHMIR CEASED to exist on 27 October 1947 and became a part of the DOMINION OF INDIA.
The future is that Pak must return the Pak Occupied Territory which is in their illegal possession and we shall certainly keep on adhering to the Indira Gandhi – Bhutto Shimla Accord till a final settlement takes place.
USA‘s withdrawal from AFGHANISTAN has left a large number of TALIBAN with no task except to spread terrorism in India. I am sure that Nawaz Shariff is aware of this grave situation arising and therefore Pakistan would divert such Unholy FASADI’S to create a severe situation on our Borders with tacit permission of Hafiz Saeed and the ISI. WILL THE GREATEST FUTURE SECURITY THREATS TO INDIA BE FROM EXTERNAL OR INTERNAL SOURCES? India wants Good Governance which includes International and Strategic Decisions with resources required. The process of decision making and Implementing decisions is important. It is the responsibility of the new Government and Parliament to meet the aspirations of the MASSES.
THE MASSES and the People of India must ensure today that a strong Leader is elected at the helm of Affairs. We want a Strong and Powerful Force which can defend the Country and hit hard fearlessly in Times of Aggression as also give an Economic boost to our sagging Economic Status.
PAK KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF – INDIA WILL KEEP ITS POWDER DRY
