PAK PM FINDS IT DIFFICULT TO DIGEST THE FACT THAT INDIA IS NOW ON THE ROADS OF DEVELOPMENT

According to an opinion piece that was published in the New York Times, Indian ambassador to the US Harsh Vardhan Shringla says that Pak has a” vested interest in preventing prosperity in Jammu and Kashmir because a weak economy fuels separatist sentiment in some quarters”.

In response to an op-ed by  Pak PM in the American daily recently he said under Khan’s watch, the” people of Pakistan reeling under economic depression with inflation at a 5 year high National debt exceeding GDP and an IMF bailout for the 22nd time.”

The idea for a more prosperous Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh, following the abrogation of Article 370, as if “cuts the ground under the feet of Pakistan. A country, whose “fingerprints” are known to be on the triggers of terrorism all around the world, Indian Ambassador to the US Harsh Vardhan Shringla said on Thursday.

In a hard-hitting option piece of the New York Times, Shringla said Pakistan has a” vested interest in preventing prosperity in Jammu and Kashmir, and in the Ladakh area of Kashmir because a weak economy fuels separatist sentiments in some quarters.”

“This fits into Pakistan’s larger strategy of using terrorism as a political tool. This is a country whose fingerprints are on terrorist strikes across the world and that was home to Osama Bin Laden in his last days. So it also opposes the repeal of Article 370, which legitimized discrimination and hundred economic progress,” Shringla said in response to an op-ed published by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in the American daily recently.

It has been reported that over a few weeks, the senior Indian Diplomat had seen, “a plethora of comments” from Khan and senior officials of his government painting an apocalyptic picture of India’s reorganization of its province of Jammu and Kashmir- and raising the threat of conflict including a nuclear war with India.

“Clearly this prospect for a more prosperous Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh, cut the ground under the feet of Pakistan. It’s the prime minister who had claimed that he offered to work for peace, progress, and prosperity with India. What he does not say is the assembly line of terrorists that is a major industry of his country continues without pause”, he had said.

Shringla is said to point out that if Khan finds it difficult to accept the fact that the Kashmir region is now back on the road to progress and prosperity because the Indian Government has repealed an “anachronistic and temporary” provision of law that has hindered the development over there.

He emphasized on the fact that the decision was taken by the Indian parliament to reorganize the provision and rescind the Article 370, “corrects a historic wrong” and opens new door to rejuvenate a moribund economy and promote means of horticulture, tourism, and handicrafts that are considered to be the most important and unique strength of our culture.

“Equally important, this change will deliver social and economic justice to a region that was out of step with rest of the nation”, he said.

Shringla even mentioned the point that while the Indian government’s decision to revoke article 370, will help to bring economic growth in Jammu and Kashmir, under Khan’s watch people of Pakistan are reeling under economic depression, with inflation at a 5 year high National depth exceeding gross domestic product and the international monetary  fund bailout for the 22nd time.

He isn’t commented that the Pakistani Prime Minister has, “every right to run his own economy in the ground. But his intention to inflict similar damage on the province of his neighboring country must be challenged by the international community.”

“ Khan needs to wake up and smell the tea. The development will happen, progress will be visible and prosperity will take root and definitely terrorism will fail. And India will hope that Pakistan renounces hostility, violence, and terrorism to become a normal neighbor that all of South Asia desires”, said the Indian envoy.

Slamming upon Khan’s criticism of India for its treatment of non-Muslims and other non-Hindu minorities, Shringla said that, “this would be laughable if the reality was not so tragic. When Pakistan was created its population was 23% minorities. This is now down to 3%, a figure that speaks for itself. And there are countless faces, Shias, Ahmadis, Christians, Hindus, and Sikhs-who can testify to this tragic reality. And the irony of seeing Islamabad refusing to recognize the legitimacy of Israel and tolerating anti-Semitic  sentiment, but now invoking images of European fascism is simply astounding.”

On Khan’s comment regarding institutions like the Financial Action Task Force, and considering it to be an international organization that investigates terrorist financing is a part of a conspiracy against Pakistan. To this Shringla had commented that the Pakistani leader obscures the fact that the mastermind of the Mumbai terrorist attack in 2008, had been shielded by Pakistan. He even said, “And that the Pulwama suicide bombing was carried out by Jaish-e-Muhammad, a United Nations proscribed terrorist outfits that operate openly from one of his major cities”.

He had even said that Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh are now in transition,“ incitement and support from across the border for violence and terrorism are to be expected. Many of the restrictions on travel and communications intended to ensure public order and safety have since been relaxed. Preventing the loss of life is the highest priority.”

Setting up on the fact that India’s actions on Article 370 have no implications outside the nation, Shringla said that it’s external boundaries have not changed, nor the line of control with Pakistan have been affected.

“What has changed is that there is now hope for development that will help the residents of the region and that will obstruct Pakistan’s longstanding support of cross border terrorism. That is why the Prime Minister concords alarming scenarios, hoping to stop this improvement”.
