    India never started a war with Pakistan: Asghar

    asghar has interesting and innovative
    solution to kashmmir problem.joint rule of kashmir is great idea

    LAHORE: President Tehrik-e-Istaqlal Air Marshal (retd) Asghar Khan said that Pakistan initiated the 1965 and 1971 wars with India.

    In an exclusive interview with The News Friday, he said Pakistan opened the front with India by sending troops to Runn of Kutch in 1965, and later in 1971 created such conditions in East Pakistan that India had to wage a war.

    ``India never started a war with Pakistan,'' viewed Asghar Khan and contended that there was no need to revamp Pakistan Air Force as India had never been a threat. He said Pakistan need not spend much on defence as India would hardly dare attack Pakistan.

    He said a certain "section of the society," time and again, created hysteria in the country that jehad should be launched against India and USA. He proposed an independent state of Jammu and Kashmir whose defence should be the joint responsibility of India and Pakistan. Suggesting that both the countries should station one or two army brigades in the valley, he said the Kashmiris be allowed to rule themselves in a peaceful atmosphere.

    He said as the people of Kashmir could not be won over with force, Pakistan and India should make efforts to establish peace and tranquility in the region. Recalling that he had proposed this to Ayub Khan and told him that the "will of Kashmiris" must be ascertained instead of winning them over with the use of force. But, Ayub, intoxicated with victory in Runn of Kutch, didn't pay heed to his sugestion, said Asghar Khan

    He condemned the the role of political parties on Kashmir issue, and termed their "rhetoric" as exploitation of public sentiments on Kashmir dispute. Supporting the signing of CTBT, Asghar Khan said it was time to deweaponise since there would be no war--conventional or nuclear.

    Appreciating the devolution of power plan, he said only a military government could make this revolutionary move. When asked about the ARD movement, Asghar Khan said this alliance, like all others, wanted to grab power.

    Where are all Indians who propagate that in Pakistan no one has talent to analyze or can think rationally?

            Does it not prove that we Pakistanis have more freedom than what people believe that it's a strict military regime running the country and no one has any right to say anything.

                    You must be out of your mind coz all people who are selected for these posts (in all countries including india) have to fill a form that they won't disclose any secret as long as they occupy these posts.

                    Did u hear any Indian Chief of Staff going against the policies of the government or criticising them?

                      Maybe he does not think it is a secret. It is well known that India never invaded pakistan. Only few pakistanis believe otherwise.

                        ZZ,

                        A majority of Pakistan believes otherwise, that India was always on the wrong side. Pls listen to their intellectuals discussing political matters on PTV. On Indian issues they don’t discuss, they just okey to each other. If they are confused an ‘Inshaallah’ helps them.

                        Pak people believe that India is guilty for rejecting a plebiscite in Kashmir. They never read the UN resolution.

                        India started war in 1965 and was defeated.

                        In 1971 India stabbed Pakistan in back, otherwise it was not a war.

                        In Kargil only 300 terrorists kept aside the huge Indian army.

                        On the eve of Clinton arrival to India killing of 35 Sikhs in Kashmir was a job of Indian State. For providing a solid proof the killers were in Indian Army uniform.

                        In Dec 1999, hijacking of Indian plane was a projection of RAW. Why did they choose Kandhar? Why Taleban did not arrest highjackers. (Hence every thing was supposed to be Indian)

                        In Kashmir 70000 civilians are killed. A figure being repeated for last two years without any changes.

                        How shall we accept it? A mere fabricated propaganda or comedy in history.

                          Skv anand typical stupid post.
                          And i can't believe you indians believe what this other idiot is saying.
                          If it makes you happy so be it.
                          But we know what really happened.

                          A war is when an offical boundary is crossed.
                          India started the 1965 war.

                            Asghar Khan is famous for being a 'Lota'. He needs attention because his political influence is zero in the country.

                            This idea appears to be coming from present leaders of Pak government. To me it looks more like an official feeler. But, everyone knows India won't come to this solution. In fact Indian leaders are famous for being too much stubborn. So the idea is flopped already.

                            Thanks to this thread creator. A good attempt to boost up Asghar Khan's morale.

                              Is Asghar Khan's son still a minister in the present government? Even then, he is an idiot!

                              1965: I don't buy the Run of Kach story. If you say Pakistan started the war bcz of Operation Gibraltor in Kashmir, then you have some legs to stand on.

                              1971: Same stupid theory. As CM said, the war starts when you cross the international boundries. This is like saying Kuwait started the war with Iraq.

                              Kashmir: Crappy solution. Not even worth a comment.
