Kashmir and Israel settlement model


In the wake of the Indian fascist government’s notorious and unlawful move of stripping the special status of Indian Occupied Kashmir by abrogating Articles 370 and 35A, it was quite evident that the Narendra Modi-led government would turn the occupied valley into a Palestine to metalize its nefarious designs. Kashmir Hurriyat leaders raised the issue repeatedly that the occupation forces would not hesitate to turn the only Muslim majority state into muslim minority state and they would use tactics; however the world powers and human right organizations paid no attention to their concern. Prime Minister Imran Khan, while reacting to the Indian government’s move to scrap Article 370, also hinted that New Delhi would attempt to “change the demography of Kashmir through ethnic cleansing”.India’s consul general in New York Sandeep Chakravorty’s remarks whose video has gone viral on social media, in which he is addressing a group of Kashmiri Hindus – known as Pandits – at a private event in the US city last week advocating Israel-like settlements of Kashmiri Hindus, which showed the evil intention of Indian government. “I believe the security situation will improve, it will allow the refugees to go back, and in your lifetime, you will be able to go back … and you will be able to find security, because we already have a model in the world,” said Chakravorty, referring to the exodus of tens of thousands of Kashmiri Hindus in 1989 after an armed rebellion against the Indian rule started in the Himalayan region.The senior Indian diplomat has triggered a controversy, which was strongly reacted by Kashmiri leaders as well as Prime Minister Imran Khan. Imran Khan twitted that Chakravorty’s views reflect “the fascist mindset of the Indian government”.
Relations with African countries
The two days envoys conference on Africa concluded in Islamabad on Thursday. Pakistan’s relations with African nations have always been characterized by cordiality, mutual trust and understanding. Consistent with the vision of the leadership, and priorities of the government, the conference was aimed at deepening Pakistan’s engagement with Africa in diverse fields. Africa is the second largest continent of the world with 20% of the world’s landmass and 54 sovereign states, with 1.2 billion people and the largest youth population on the globe. With a collective GDP of over US $ 2.3 trillion and an import market of around $ 500 billion, most countries in Africa are witnessing stable growth. Due to its rich natural resources and growing middle-class consumer market, the World Bank has predicted that most African countries will reach middle income status by 2025. This presents a tremendous opportunity for Pakistani goods and services. As part of UN peace-keeping operations, Pakistan has made a significant contribution for peace, security and development on the Continent over the past several decades. During the conference, the participants deliberated on ways and means to further strengthen existing relations with African countries and diversify and deepen political, economic, security and socio cultural ties. The Conference also provided leading manufacturers, exporters and IT organizations the opportunity to brief the Pakistani Envoys on potential goods and services which can be exported to African markets. Speaking at the concluding session, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that promotion of relations with countries in Africa would be the new focus of Pakistan’s foreign policy operations. Pakistan needed to have a robust engagement with Africa. The ties with African countries did not get priority in Pakistan’s external relations in the past because of lack of innovation and creativity in running the foreign policy. There are tremendous opportunities for Pakistani goods and services in view of growing middle-class consumer market in African countries. Pakistan now needs to concentrate on Africa like many other countries of the region. Pakistani diplomats are capable and with a visionary approach of the government they will contribute bringing good relations with the African countries.
