Tennyson in ‘Locksley Hall’ presented his vision of the world where “war-drum throbb’d no longer, and the battle flags were furled.” Mudaliar, the Dewan of Mysore speaking on behalf of undivided India had once said, the great reality, which all religions teach is the dignity of the common man.

However, all those words rang hollow, when the Indian and Pakistani delegations faced each other in the U.N. Reality was rare, as even the photograph brandished by Pakistan’s Maleeha Lodhi as being from Jammu and Kashmir was actually from Gaza. In any case, the India-Pakistan war of words was outdone by the U.S. and North Korea.

However UN’s 72nd General Assembly was made one of its most disappointing sessions because of its ineffectiveness on each of the issues pointed out by Secretary General António Guterres in his speech on September 19.

According to him seven biggest threats that face the world today are:

  • Nuclear peril.
  • Terrorism.
  • Unresolved conflicts and violations of international humanitarian law.
  • Growing inequality.
  • Climate change.
  • Cyber warfare and misuse of artificial intelligence.
  • Refugees.

UN’s actions in the case of North Korea just amounted to some more sanctions against it. The truth about sanctions is that they do not work on rogue states but they only isolate their populations from the world, which works in favour of regime’s stranglehold on its people.

On the basis of satellite pictures and the accounts of eyewitnesses, the UN Human Rights chief called military action in post-democracy Myanmar,  a “textbook case of ethnic cleansing”, as close to half a million Rohingya fled from Rakhine villages that were then burnt down and landmines were laid along the border with Bangladesh to prevent their return.

Given that Hafiz Saeed and his associates now plan to stand for public office in Pakistan and while Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi received bail despite financial sanctions, more action is expected from U.N.

Mr. Guterres pointed out on the issue of inequalities that, “eight men represent as much of the world’s wealth as half of all humanity”

UN’s first Secretary General, Trygve Lie, ran an equally divided forum and faced the same challenges before finally resigning from his post in 1952. His last words were, “The United Nations will not work effectively if it is used merely as forum for destructive propaganda. Neither will it work if it is used only as a convenience when national interests are directly involved, and regarded with indifference, or bypassed or opposed, when the general world interest is paramount.”

China directs Pakistan to shunt Hafiz Sayeed out of the country

Published

on

An extremely significant political development has come into effect that the traditional ally of Pakistan which has been till date promoting Pakistan in all its anti India endeavours like obstructing international terrorist and head of Jamaait Ul Dawa Mohammed Azar as being labelled as International terrorist in the UN list and India’s entry in the prestigious Nucleur Suppliers Group etc has now castigated Pakistan for aiding and abetting the dreaded terrorist and Mumbai’s 21/ 11 mastermind that killed 160 people and directed Pakistan to send him to any country of the West with immediate effect as the latter is considered to be the greatest threat to the entire Asian Subcontinent.

China’s recent directive to Pakistan in the context of the dreaded terrorist Hafiz Sayeed is being assesed in International forum as China’s vindication of India’s stand that Pakistan had been consistently sponsering terrorists in its periphery particularly the hard core terror sponsers like Lashkare Tayyeba chief Hafiz Sayeed and Jamait Ul Dava’s Mohammed Azhar but had been always turning a blind eye thus boosting Pakistan’s morale to carry on its anti India stance.

Even China’s bete niore USA has also held Pakistan responsible for sponsering terror activities in Afghanistan, India and the Western world and had stopped the annual military aid after Donald Trump assumed the significant office of the US presidentship. Trump literally scolded Pakistan’s political and military leadership of openly supporting terrorists and and terror sanctuaries in various parts of Pakistan including POK and misusing the American Aid by aiding and abetting terror than to eliminating them from their land. As a sequel to this threat Donald Trump stopped the financial aid till Pakistan really proves its mettle in dismentalling the terror camps and terrorists

The entire credit for the sudden change of dragon’s mind in asking Pakistan to shunt Hafiz Sayeed out of the country is being attributed to Prime minister Narendra Modi and the NSA Ajit Doval die hard efforts and meticulous diplomacy, who had done tremendous ground work on this pivotal issue and finally proved successful in convincing the Chinese head Xi Zingping to apply pressure on the Pak leadership who are fully in the grip of him and can in no way avoid his directives.

Today China is running the economy of Pakistan which is literally shattered, particularly after stopping of the financial aid to Pakistan by USA. The country is tremendous financial crunch not even able to pay the interests against the huge international borrowings.

Half of the POK is under Chinese occupation through its heavy investment in China Pakistan Economic corridor worth 40 billion USD.

The national elections in Pakistan are also due in the near future and China who had tremendous stake in Pakistan would never like that dreaded and hard core terrorists like Hafiz Sayeed and his political off shoots enter the Pak assembly creating problems for dragons in future.

Hence in the interest of India, China and rest of the western world crushing such hard core terrorists is the need of the hour.

However, it still remains to be seen as to how much strongly and credibly Pakistan acts on Chinese instructions on the issue of Hafiz Sayeed and if the dragon is really serious and honest on this issue.

Modi’s fourth China visit. Would it fructify ?

Published

on

The China visit of prime minister Narendra Modi is being rated as extremely significant in the context of an exercise to improve the deteriorating relations with China in terms of the existing border differences and the developments of Doklam that resulted in bitter relations between both the countries about ten months ago.

While the government of China as well as India is according tremendous hype and importance to Modi Xi summit, an expert on Indo China relations on the condition of anonymity termed these exercises as just a routine meeting to keep the people and media of the country in good humour as the 2019 elections are nearing as China being an expansionist country with a past record of suspicion and betrayal would never ever maintain its commitment of friendship with India as a trustworthy nation.

This is the fourth visit of prime minister of India Narendra Modi to China with good number of pre diplomatic level meetings of the top brass of foreign ministeries of both the countries including the NSA level talks but despite all this Doklam happened and incidents of several Chinese incursions on India borders continued unabated including indirect threats of the dragon on Dalai Lama and Tibet issues.

If we go by the statistics there have been hundreds of breaches of the Sino India agreement on border issues including China’s arbitrary efforts in blocking India’s membership in United Nations Security Council and the Nuclear Suppliers Club thus helping and pleasing India’s traditional enemy number one Pakistan.

The huge and massive investment in the China Pakistan Economic Corridor to the tune of 40 billion US Dollars is also an issue bothering India which is enough to prove home the point as to how pre strategically the Dragon is trying to counter India by way of arming its enemy through not only civilian assistence but militarily and nuclearly as well.

India has always been too peaceful and liberal in terms of its foreign policy with China, being a country, always believing in the Panchsheel principles of peaceful coalition and honouring the bilateral agreements on border dispute but the Chinese have always breached and betrayed India right from 1962 till now and had been applying various kinds of pulls and pressures to compel India to accept its over ambitious Belt and Road initiative, through which the expansionist China wanted to capture the world, particularly the Asian sub continent in the context of commerce and business.

India had the guts to openly refuse its Belt and Road Initiative as well as countering it in Doklam. Finally China had to relent and it withdrew from the dispute territory of Bhutan. Now China is trying to manipulate India diplomatically so as to earn its confidence and compel it to surrender psychologically and otherwise. But prime minister Narendra Modi and the most capable and intelligent NSA Ajit Doval are playing their own tricks to keep the Dragon in good humour and at bay so that the deteriorating or simmering tensions between both the countries could be revived and at least kept at par avoiding any further bitterness.

War these days is not a solution to any problem as every country of the world, small or big, developing or developed is armed with nucleur power which has extremely serious repercussions and implications.

Peace and friendship through amicable deliberations and mutual understanding through diplomatic channels is the only solution to keep the world and countries moving ahead, peacefully. If North and South Korea could unite as for now why can’t there be amicable understanding between China and India, predict some experts on foreign relations. Let’s see what comes out Modi Xi summit finally after the fourth visit of the former to China. What’s your take friends?
