Horror in Paradise



“I like talking to a brick wall. I find it is the only thing that never contradicts me.”

Oscar Wilde

India’s militant leadership-led by AB Vajpayee n’ his buddy LK Advani seem to be in a zest to tag on these words-which is conspicuous from their belligerent posture vis-é-vis Pakistan-swelling with the advent of every dawn. Yet they are naive about the ground reality that they are trying to face a rock-solid nation-which if they go through the pages of history-has taught India a life-size lesson [via two wars on Kashmir dispute] which a pragmatic historian would ink in dazzling words. With this veracity they must eschew the Oscar’s words else they would confront nothing except a hemorrhage as with such a mindset-each n’ every outburst uttered by them-shall be contradicted by a perilous scenario, equipped with full might.

Negating the Vajpayee-cum-Advani’ delirium, this year too, atypical of the uptight days of the somewhat ephemeral month-February, its 5th day-with a coherent truth as the Kashmir Solidarity Day-is a crystal-clear emblem of the all-time nuance that the heart beat of each n’ every soul-hailing from the cute Himalayan state synchronizes with Pakistan alone. An endless horrific scenario-unleashed on the guiltless people by the wicked Indian charlatans-over the past five decades has attested nothing except a outrageous discomfiture for the New Delhi’s grotesque mindset and it would carry on till such time that the Kashmir Issue is resolved-in such a fashion which candidly replicates the in-most feelings of the epic n’ classic souls-their State’s accession with Pakistan at all costs. With this factuality India-itself fully knows that it can not rip-off the global view any more and the time is just in close proximity when the New Delhi rulers shall have to bow before the explicit n! ‘ decisive will of the gallant people of the Jammu and Kashmir-in line with the historic resolution of July the 19th 1947 which was adopted-with one voice at their spirited representative assemblage held in Srinagar-airing vis-é-vis all dimensions of horizons, a resolute avowal-then categorically authenticated by the UN resolutions-inexorably [for plebiscite]-that the destiny of the Jammu & Kashmir state-by all norms of logics n’ acuity-is knotted with Pakistan alone. Pragmatically speaking isn’t it a fact that Kashmiris are engaged in a bona fide resist [against antagonistic Indian prowlers] who are occupying-with almost a million armed might-a part of their gorgeous land? The valiant Kashmiris are, in fact adding an immaculate golden chapter in their epic history by making-matchless-supreme sacrifices with the advent of every dawn. Least upset on the reign of terror, let lose-in a nutty way-by the ferocious Indian troops who are betrothed in iniquitous acts of perpetuating callous atrocities and brutalities against the innocent people in the India-held Kashmir é each and every Kashmiri is staunch to carry on the vindicated fight until the attainment of their valid, legitimate and prime aim of smashing the shackles of the Indian yoke to seek their universally-accepted birth right of self é determination-all the way through any sacrifice.

Due to their stupendous valour no doubt, the intrepid Kashmiri people are swiftly winning feelings of affinity, love and affection from every peace-loving nation world-wide-explicitly-from their eventual destination-Pakistan atop. With this perception-based on a singular objective to accumulate an optimal focus on the plight of the oppressed Kashmiris-the Solidarity Day is observed all through Pakistan and Azad Kashmir on February the 5th every year n’ this shall continue till such time that the tyrannical Indian manacles are smashed for all times to come. With a focus on the Kashmir Issue, the events of the day are to reiterate Pakistan’s steadfast moral, political and diplomatic support towards Kashmiris’ warranted cause. Capacious programmes take place to put across Pakistan’s eternal solidarity with the Kashmiri people in an optimal zestful way. This year, too-the day-is being observed with the elite goal for stable peace in South Asia-which has been a hallmark of Pakistan’s well-acknowledged foreign policy-obviously with an ardour for seeking a peaceable solution of this age-old issue and to pass on a clear-cut memo to the intercontinental community through all possible means-specifically-via the universal media to glue its curiosity on the Kashmir problem-which has been the root cause of the pushy tension in South Asia for decades. Any auxiliary Machiavellian act on it’s [world-specifically the western] media’s part-rest assured-shall result into nothing except slotting it into a setting of ignominy n’ debase for overlooking an endorsed voice of a subjugated civilization-the Kashmiris. In this way-their all avers of objectivity plus adore for human rights shall evaporate in a jiffy. It’s worth all eulogize that to communicate solidarity with the people of Jammu n’ Kashmir State, February the 5th remains a public holiday throughout Pakistan and Azad Kashmir. It is significant to note that India, with tacit hug of some world powers-specifically the United States-is trying to portray Kashmiris’ equitable struggle as ‘a terrorist crusade’. New Delhi has nastily tried to intimidate Pakistan as well via massive troops’ build-up along the border in a bid to put weight on Islamabad to give up its principled stand on the issue. Prima facie, India wants to take benefit of the ongoing war against terrorism to perpetuate its illegal occupation of Kashmir, which-in fact-is nothing except its hallucination. Under such a dogmatic Indian approach, a great responsibility rests on the shoulders of the apex Pakistani and Kashmiri leadership to frustrate New Delhi’s monstrous designs and expose its true face to the world. We have-paradoxically-been in a way viewing criminal negligence both by captivating on unproductive visits abroad [especially by a diverse segment of Kashmiri politicians-with oblivious hefty delegates-composed-by n’ large-of their sycophants, instead of opting for a set of erudite bona fide reps plus authentically au fait journalists] to symbolize as persuasive n’ credible lobbyists-as well as on the diplomatic front. Despite the fact that ours is an upright position and Kashmiris have genuine grievances and demands, we have not been able to align the world public opinion on our side. It is not that the entire world is against us and in favour of India but we have made no tangible exertion on sustained basis to mould the international view. There are steady grouses that most of the voyagers-beyond oceanic-plus our diplomats are more obsessed in their own interests than focusing their zest onto the real endeavour. There is, therefore, an imperative need to motivate traveling delegates-through an in-depth update brief-plus to set in motion our missions abroad, predominantly those in the important capitals of the world to thwart India’s malevolent propaganda drive vis-é-vis the Kashmir issue by projecting it in its true perspective, which can-conveniently-be made achievable via a clued-up think tank because Pakistan’s view-point has already be accredited-unanimously-at the highest problems’-solver forum-the United Nations whereas India has no Locus standi-whatsoever.

Nevertheless as per schedule, this year also the Solidarity Day is to dawn with special prayers-after Nimaz-e-Fajr-for myriad martyrs of Jammu & Kashmir as well as for the definitive success of the freedom struggle-going on in the IOK against the Indian bondage. Besides mass rallies, symposia, walk-for-peace, conventions, meetings and speech declamations, an idiosyncratic ceremony at all the five bridges-where a human chain comprising Pakistanis and Kashmiris-to express solidarity with each other-is to be a splendid feature of the day – long events as a part of the observance in an apposite way. One minute silence at 10 in the morning is to be yet another characteristic to manifest unison with the Kashmiri people. The befitting events of the Kashmir Solidarity Day are ought to serve as an eye-opener for the comity of nations-with an await that it would assert its utmost coerce on India to give up its egotistical n’ pugnacious posture by bending before the ground reality that! it [India] shall have to quit the held state-one day, perceptibly in the near future. Thus the only way for India-to avert all types of skirmishes-is to come to the table of talks with Pakistan for an early de-escalation of the region’s edgy set-up. Discarding their ludicrous stance, the New Delhi warlords shall have to concede to-every sagacious soul- that such an approach is indispensable for peace in the South Asian region which can obviously be made possible-alone with instantaneous solution of the core issue of Kashmir, reflecting the aspirations of the Kashmiri people. Else a zeal to clutch the notion of peace in the region-rather beyond oceanic-shall stay on nothing beyond a castle in Spain or a chimera. The onus-for such a petrifying course-shall rest with India alone and the chivalrous Kashmiris shall saturate all ploys-being applied by New Delhi-to helix Horror in Paradise.

The feeble n’ frenzied Vajpayee-with a top slot pose-though one of the harbingers of the fanatic RSS-which gave birth to the BJP-is bound to accept another axiom of Oscar Wilde-wherein-he says and I quote: ‘I am not young enough to know everything’, or the cliché of theorist Erich Fromm, which I quote as piece for thought: ‘A dream is a microscope through which we look at the hidden occurrences in our soul’. So stay away from tyrannizing the gallant people of Jammu and Kashmir State who are all set to trounce each type of catastrophic delusion. It’s good for you to bow before the words of solicitous Zig Ziglar: ‘It is your attitude and not your aptitude that determines your altitude’. Isn’t it so? Thus the only course left at-least for the sake of India’s famished billion-plus populace-of whom almost half is shabbily living below the poverty-line-is that India should instantaneously quit Kashmir-at least for the Indians’ affluent future which can be made possible-alone-by setting aside absurd war hysteria-which is detectable from Indian headship’s gluttony for accumulating arsenal of mass-destruction by callously disregarding even the minimal needs of the poor species. Anyway India can’t surmount the dynamic will of the chivalrous Kashmiris-what ever tactic it may apply. Believe me it is a ground reality-no one on earth can deny via any ploy!
