    Pakistan uses Kashmir to facilitate US plans against China

    On the 23rd of May the Indian Defence Minister Jeswant Singh said, “India’s commitment to peace, dialogue and cooperative coexistence with Pakistan remains unaltered. Prime Minister Vajpayee has decided to invite Gen. Pervez Musharraf, the Chief Executive of Pakistan to visit India at his earliest convenience”. On the same day Pakistani Foreign Secretary Inamul Haq said,”The Chief Executive has more than once said that he is ready to hold talks with the Indian leadership at any level, anytime and at any place. We will respond positively when we receive the invitation officially”. America the real hand behind Vajpayee’s invitation warmly welcomed India’s offer of talks for the resolution of the Kashmir issue. The US State Department's deputy spokesman Philip Reeker said, " Pakistan and India had an opportunity to make real progress towards a reduction of tension and resolution of their differences through peaceful means". For the past eighteen months, America has been painstakingly trying create a conducive atmosphere for both countries to enter into meaningful dialogue concerning the Kashmir dispute. By settling the Kashmir problem, America hopes to forge a strong relationship between India and Pakistan and then to utilise them along with Kashmir as a counter balance against China.

    After the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early nineties, the US undertook several steps to contain the emergence of China as a regional power, especially the danger posed by her nuclear arsenal. America identified South Asia as the region to control and in particular winning over the grand prize of India to her sphere of influence, so that she could effectively contain the Chinese threat. America instructed Pakistan to instigate the Kashmir uprising in 1989 with the intention of increasing international pressure on India and also to weaken her economy. In August 1998, Pakistan under the auspices of the US intentionally fuelled the uprising further, by supporting it with a combination of army units and jihadi organisation. This eventually culminated in the Kargil conflict, which the Clinton administration fully exploited to aid BJP to win the Indian general elections. Hence the defeat of congress shifted India from the British camp to the American sphere of influence. America further consolidated her foothold in India by exaggerating the threat posed to Indian security from Afghanistan and the Pakistani sponsored jihadi organisation operating in Kashmir. This precipitated Clintons historic visit to India in March 2000, where a number bilateral agreements ranging from economic to security cooperation between the two countries were signed. As a result, America extended her control over the whole of the sub-continent, but relations between the India and Pakistan remained tense because of Kashmir. This was recently reiterated by Foreign Minister Abdul Satter, “ Kashmir will remain at the centre stage… It will also remove the root cause of tensions that has blighted Pakistan and Indian relations since 1947”. Therefore, America needed to improve bilateral relations between the two countries in order to progress her plans for the containment of China. With Musharraf and Vajpayee two of her most loyal agents at the helm, US commenced work behind the scenes to bring both countries together for a negotiated settlement on Kashmir and to improve cultural and economic ties between them. These activities began earnestly in November 2000, when India announced a unilateral ceasefire against the Mujahideen in Kashmir. Pakistan reciprocated Indian gestures towards peace and declared that it would exercise maximum constraint on the line of control and reduced the presence of its troops stationed there. This was followed by government measures to severely restrict operations of Jihadi organisation, which was in a response to remarks made by US ambassador to Pakistan William Milam on February 9th, who said, “The Jihadi organizations (in Pakistan) are working against the best interests of the people of the region”. In addition to these measures the government has been working diligently on a cultural level to remould the public opinion of the nation for peace. Governments insistence on removing the translation of Quranic ayahs from specific syllabuses, granting of licenses to private cable channels to broadcast Indian culture, promotion of Basant and the Punjabi festival and other cultural exchanges are all designed to emphasis the common culture shared by the two countries. On the economic front the government has made it plainly clear that its future lies in trading with India and not entering into an arms race with her. On the 22nd of May, Indian businessmen were invited to attend the PICCI meeting at Islamabad to explore ways of boosting commercial ties between the two countries. On the occasion the Minister for Privatisation Altaf Saleem said, “ I hope the businessmen of the two countries will become a driving force, leading towards the resolution of longstanding disputes”. The only dangers to the American plans of the normalisation of relations between the two countries are the British elements presently working in both countries to thwart the process. The resignation of two senior colleagues of Vajpayee over the arms scandal in March 2001, the recent victory of congress in the state polls and the mobilisation of leading ulema on the Track II path are attempts by Britain to undermine BJP and its coalition partners. Concerning American plans to contain China; the Bush administration has adopted an aggressive approach and has described China as ‘a strategic competitor’ rather than ‘a strategic partner’. The most prominent features of this plan are the encouragement of ethnic groups in China to separate from the main land, widening of security alliances in Asia, strengthening exiting bases and expanding the search for new bases in the region. America has been using Afghanistan to ferment the agitation of several ethnic groups across the Central Asian States and also China. This policy has helped America acquire a foothold over the oil of Caspian sea by allowing her to enter into bilateral security agreements with several of Central Asian states under the pretext of fighting terrorism. In doing so, the US has undermined existing Russian security alliances with some of the countries in the region - for example Tajikistan has been admitted to NATO's 'partnership for peace program' and has been invited to participate as an observer in multinational large-scale manoeuvres due in June in Germany. America through Pakistan has provided Afghanistan the necessary military support and financial assistance to sponsor these clandestine operations, despite the imposition of sanctions. It was reported by CNN on the 18th of May that the sum given so far amounts $124.2 million for this year, making the US the largest Afghan donor for the second year in a row. China has also protested to Pakistan on a number of occasions to stop the encouragement of fighters into Xinjiang and Kisinjianog areas from Afghanistan and the Kashmiri border with China. Currently, America is exploiting the Tibetan and Taiwan issue to put maximum pressure on China. On 23rd of May, President Bush held private talks with Dalai Lama the leader of Tibet and earlier the US administration entertained Taiwan's president, Chen Shui-bian. Both meetings were strongly criticised by China. A Chinese government spokesman urged American leaders to "stop interfering in China's internal affairs" by permitting official meetings with the Dalai Lama and warned of "harm to Chinese-American relations. It is envisaged that US will use India, where the exiled Dalai Lama resides to flare up separatist sentiments in Tibet. With regards to security alliances in Asia the US has been busy strengthening its bilateral military agreements with many countries in the region – most notably India, Taiwan, South Korea Indonesia and Japan. Over the last year, America has allowed India to extensively upgrade its conventional weapons and strengthen its missile launching capabilities. The recent war games exercise – biggest in Indian history and involved fighter planes that could carry nuclear warheads was specifically designed to prepare India for an eventual conflict with China. This is why it invited a dampened response from the Pakistani authorities. To improve Indian’s air force, America consented to the sale of phalcon early warning plane from Israel. Earlier the US vehemently objected to the sale of the same plane to China. This special aircraft will give India a huge surveillance advantage in an event of a likely conflict with China. America is also strengthening the naval capabilities of both Pakistan and India to enable them to project power beyond the Indian Ocean. Recently, Musharraf visited Burma and Vietnam with this objective in mind and succeeded in gaining Burma as port for Pakistani naval ships. India was one of the few countries that warmly greeted Bush’s National Missile Defence system. On 11th of May, deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage greatly appreciated the Indian response to NMD and said, “ It should be quite clear that we are on the verge of moving forward with this relationship”. The US administration views NMD as the key to offset China’s relatively small nuclear force and hopes to destabilise China by fuelling an arms race with her – similar to the way US competed with the Soviet Union till her demise. America also intends to expand the number of military basis it has in the Far East. Currently it has 100,000 troops station in Japan, South Korea, Philippines and other countries in the Pacific Rim. In a report published by a senior aid to Bush, it was mentioned that the US at present lacked reliable access to South Asia… The most probable place for the US to establish a base is Kashmir, which strategically borders Pakistan, India and China. It is in this context that the US wants to participate in fashioning a solution for Kashmir that will either, permit her to deploy her troops there, or to sufficiently reinforce Kashmir with weapons and then use her in pursuit of US efforts to contain China. This is very similar to America plans for the Middle East peace process, where her ulterior motive is to secure the strategic area of Golan Heights.

    The rulers of the Muslim world are mere puppets in the hand of the colonialist powers, especially America. The sole motivation for them in this life is to protect the interest of the colonialist powers in exchange for looking after the affairs of the ummah. The practical way of eliminating these oppressive rulers and the systems of kufr they implement is to work for the establishment of the Khilafah State. The Khilafah state will unify all the armies of the Muslims countries into a single army and liberate all Muslim lands from the occupation of the kuffar and carry Islam to the rest of the world by engaging in Jihad to make the word of Allah the highest.

    Why not change the topic to "Khilafat" rather anything else. At least people will not bother opening threads like these. You try to post topic with a subject and then very nicely twist it to Khalifah.

    BTW your analysis was wrong. But nice collection of statements and I guess you wasted a lot of time on it.

    "Away from Eyes......Close to Heart"



      Political Analysis can only be proven wrong by time.

      The call for khilafah is the call for the complete ruling system of Islam without which we are defenseless.

      btw, Source

      Are you against having a khilafah?
