INDIA seems to have made a decision to adopt a highly aggressive posture towards Pakistan. Despite the fact that India itself is on a weapons' acquisition binge, it has seen fit to object to Pakistan acquiring weapons from China through the normal course of the legal conventional arms market. This is absurd, since the huge level of armaments India is stockpiling is already destroying the conventional balance in the subcontinent. At best, Pakistan can offset some of this imbalance with its purchases from China; and for India to make it a point of discussion in its bilateral interaction with China merely reflects its unhealthy obsession with its much smaller neighbour Pakistan. Even more ridiculous is Indian External Affairs Minister's objection to Chinese companies working in Azad Kashmir on the ground that Jammu and Kashmir is an "integral part" of India. Mr Krishna knows full well that his country is illegally occupying a part of Jammu and Kashmir. The UN Security Council resolutions not only give recognition to Jammu and Kashmir as disputed territory, they also prescribe the path of resolving the dispute - through allowing the people of J and K their right to self determination through a plebiscite. At present, AJK is the only liberated part of J and K and therefore has a right to allow any foreign company to work in its territory. Clearly, India has opted to deal with Pakistan within a hostile posture. That is why it has refused to move towards restoration of the bilateral dialogue, which requires some movement in the direction of conflict resolution. Under these circumstances, it makes no sense for Pakistan to make any form of concessions to India on a unilateral basis. Nor does it make much sense for the flotation of a movement for peace when political conflicts remain unresolved and the Indian state pushes forward an intransigent and hostile posture. Peace can only come when there is movement towards conflict resolution. Finally, India really needs to stop its tirade of terrorism germinating in Pakistan. Given the growing evidence of Indian involvement in terrorism in Balochistan and FATA, it seems terrorism is being bred in India and exported to the neighbourhood. Perhaps the most critical question for us is why our state and government are keeping silent on what is an emerging threat from India?
