Pakistan — The Victim of Suicidal Politics
By Tanveer Jafri
Contributing Writer
Pakistan is nowadays the centre of attraction for the whole world because of not only historical flood but also for its terrorist activities. The ever deteriorating situation and political tussle along with the deep rooted radical mind-set are taking a huge toll on Pakistan. These radical forces think that jihad against India is more important than aid to Pakistani flood victims. Although US has asked Pakistan to accept Indian aid for flood victims and there should be no role for politics in disaster. But Pakistan, so far, had not accepted the offer. While at the same time its leaders have been sending SOS to the international community for more and more aid so as to meet the immediate needs of its millions of flood-affected people. Due to such radical suicidal politics last days Pakistan had to face embarrassment when the British Prime Minister on his India tour blamed Pakistan for its dual role in Afghanistan and accused it of supporting the Taliban. He also said that his government would not tolerate the double standards of Pakistan and its support to terrorism in Afghanistan, India or any other part of the world. This truth didn’t go down well with Pakistan and the ISI head Shuja Pasha cancelled his British tour. It is to be noted that ISI officials were supposed to go to Britain to attend a meet on ‘cooperation against terrorism’. Prior to this also, Pakistan had to face such kind of embarrassment. In this situation, the question repeatedly arises whether this Pak-sponsored terrorism will ever be eradicated?

No doubt, Pak born terrorism is the matter of concern for the whole world including India and South Asia. Though Pak rulers also seem worried about it but the US is the most concerned party. The US from time to time provides financial and military aid to Pakistan on its demand in order to combat terrorism. Pakistan too seems to be taking some action against the Taliban as per American wishes. But despite this, Taliban’s power is increasing notwithstanding the actions taken by Pakistan. This ground reality creates a doubt regarding the willingness of Pakistan to fight terror. And this doubt gets translated into belief when the Pak President Asif Ali Zardari says that the international community is losing the war against the Taliban. Though the British Prime Minister Cameron too disagrees with such analysis of President Zardari.

In addition to the charges of nexus with the Taliban, Pakistan has been providing shelter for many terrorist organisations for decades. India has many times given the proofs to the Pak rulers relating to various secret terrorist training camps in the Pak Occupied Kashmir and in Pakistan itself. Not only have many areas in India been affected by this Pak sponsored terrorism rather Pakistan is itself becoming victim of it. This deteriorating situation led Pakistan to the stage of emergency during Parvez Musharraf’s regime. Nowadays the report which is coming regarding the support to terrorism in Pakistan, is unbelievable. But unfortunately it is true and trustworthy. After using the poor, illiterate and excited unemployed youth in the terrorist activities, the extremist and fundamental forces in Pakistan are now using innocent children in their unholy suicidal mission. The children aged 3 to 7 are being introduced with AK 47 and bombs. In many secret places of Pakistan, these children are given dangerous suicide attack training.

Children are taken away from their poor parents in the name of religion. For this, they are paid a meagre amount of money and are told that either their child will become a victor or a martyr. The parents are told that in both the cases their child will go to ‘heaven’. Certainly these facts have made Pakistan feel ashamed.

Contrary to this, if we talk of the kids in China, there also experiment is conducted on them but their experiment is not for suicide attacks for getting ‘heaven’ rather it is for participating in sports and athletics and for the purpose of winning maximum gold medals in the Olympics. In 2008, large numbers of Chinese kids were trained there during the preparations for the Beijing Olympics. The sole objective of their Government as well as their parents was to make them able to win more and more medals for China in Olympics & not making them terrorists, suicide bombers or traders of so called ‘heaven’. Some psychologists feel that most of the children adopt about 80 percent of their lives’ habits and behaviour in the first five years of their age. Rest 20 percent they imitate from their surroundings. If this logic is correct, then the future of those children can be predicted easily who have been introduced to dangerous weapons, suicide bombs, jihadi ideology at this age. Can we ever expect love, affection, humanity, forgiveness and cooperation from such innocent children of today? The biggest worry is that to what extent this Pak-based nursery of terrorism will be harmful to Pakistan itself, Islam, humanity and the entire world.

In political space also, the image of Pakistan is now of a state run by negative and selfish leaders. Since its inception, Pakistan has many a times witnessed instability. Military coups by generals by throwing out democratically elected governments and hanging Prime Minister or compelling an elected Prime Minister to leave the country or putting them in prison have become common political process in Pakistan.

On 18th October 2007, entire humanity was shocked when the former Prime Minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a terror attack in Rawalpindi city of Pakistan. This inhuman terror didn’t even consider that Benazir was a woman. Other than this, Pakistan has many times witnessed military rule, emergency and marshal law. Today the condition is so worse that even hundreds of Pakistani soldiers are being kidnapped by the Taliban. The apparent weakening of the Pak army in front of terrorists and President Zardari’s statement encouraging terrorists indicate only two things- either terrorists have become stronger than the Army or according to the fears of David Cameron and other world leaders, it is just a Pak’s dual politics or planned conspiracy. Above both situations are not only shameful but also suicidal for Pakistan.
