It is a proven fact that through clever and constant propaganda people can be made to see paradise as hell and also the other way round. Hitler’s propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels was of the view that, “If u tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.’’

Since Mr. Modi attained power in 2014 with the help of terrorist organisation RSS, he followed the footsteps of Gobbles and started a campaign against Pakistan portraying it before the world as a hub of terror. He repeats the same words like a parrot to malign Pakistan whenever he got an opportunity within India or abroad. Recently, he along with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani accused Pakistan for sponsoring terrorism during the Heart of Asia Conference held in Amritsar. A few weeks back he expressed the same kind of views in his closing statement at the BRICS summit and said that those countries who nurture, shelter, support and sponsor forces of violence and terror were as much a threat as the terrorists themselves. He tried his utmost to include the name of Pakistan in the final declaration of BRICS summit but his efforts remained unfruitful as China and Russia did not endorse his wish. Earlier when Israeli President Ruvi visited India, Mr. Modi tweeted that both the leaders agreed to make efforts to convince rye global community to act with resolve and determination against terror networks and states who harbour them. It has become a habit of Mr. Modi in his tweets and speeches to present Pakistan as a sanctuary and safe heaven of terrorists and a threat to regional as well as world peace.

When Modi speaks about sponsoring terrorism, Modi forgets India’s role sponsoring terrorism in Pakistan. Since decades, India has been promoting terrorism in Pakistan. If we look back into history and see the events of the separation of East Pakistan, Mr. Modi confessed at Dhaka University that his first exposure to politics was in form of a satyagarhi in support of the liberation struggle in Bangladesh. In this way Modi acknowledged the Indian government’s involvement in the the Eastern province of Pakistan. He reminded the students of how India intervened in the events of 1971 war. The National Security Advisor of India, Ajit Doval, who is considered eyes and ears of PM Modi, delivered a speech in January 2015 and said that he would use Taliban against Pakistan and advised the Indian government to isolate Pakistan in the world. In May 2015, Indian Defence Minister Manohar Parikar gave a statement that India would support terrorism to counter-terrorism. After these intimidating statements from Indian authorities, world saw terror attacks on Karachi airport, Kamra Airbase, the massacre of innocent children and teachers in APS Peshawar, Bacha Khan University Mardan, Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park Lahore and Police training institute Quetta. These attacks created doubts in the minds of common Pakistanis that some nexus has been established between India and TTP terrorists based in Afghanistan courtesey Afghan agency NDS.

In 2009, then Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and Indian PM Manmohan Singh met on the sidelines of the NAM summit at Sharm el Sheikh. Mr. Gillani presented proof of Indian involvement to destablise Baluchistan through terror activities. Mr. Gillani pointed out that consulates in Afghanistan were supporting insurgency in Baluchistan by training some Balochs and providing them with money and arms to create unrest in Baluchistan. Resultantly, poor Saraiki labourers and Punjabi settlers living since decades in Quetta , became victims of target killing. Eventually, the issue of terrorism in Balochistan was included in the joint statement. These facts were ratified by Former US Secretary of Defence Senator Chuck Hagel’s speech at Brookings Institution Washington where he clearly said that India was financing problems for Pakistan from across the border in Afghanistan. These kind of remarks were also given by Christine Fair, an Assistant Professor at Georgetown University during a congressional hearing on Afghanistan in 2011, that India had been using Afghanistan for stirring troubles in Pakistan. (Afterwards the Professor was forced to clarify this position following pressure from Indian lobbies.)

India is sponsoring terrorism in Pakistan. Mullah Fazlullah, butcher of APS students, is sitting in Afghanistan and carrying on his strikes against innocent Pakistanis. It is an open secret that Fazlullah has patronage of Indian agency RAW and NDS. The Indian spy Kalbhushan Yadav, a serving navy commander, was arrested in Pakistan and he was running terror networks in Karachi and Baluchistan. Mr. Modi is right that no state should sponsor terrorism but the question here arises, who is sponsoring terrorists? India or Pakistan? So far as Pakistan is concerned, Former US military commander Gen (R) David Patraeus praised the role of Pakistan against terrorism in an interactive discussion session held at the Royal United Services Institute and explained that as head of CIA, he found no piece of evidence showing any linkage between Pakistani army, FC and ISI with terrorist elements. The General added that popular narrative about ISI double game was the media’s construction.

From the above facts it is evident that India is sponsoring terrorism while Pakistan is victim of terrorism. India is acting like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. India is trying to divert the attention of the world from the atrocities committed by the Indian Army in Indian Occupied Kashmir where the Indian army is tyrannically killing innocent Kashmiris and using pellet guns against unarmed people who protest peacefully against indian occupation. India is acting on a policy of good terrorists and bad terrorists. If some incident happens in India whether it is by Kashmiri separatists or other angry fractions within India, it blames Pakistan without solid proofs and propagates that terrorists infiltrated from Pakistan.

Sadly, Pakistan’s foreign office has failed to expose the Indian policy of good terrorists and bad terrorists. Without losing further time, the government must appoint a full time foreign minister, and through an effective diplomatic strategy convince the civilised world to force the Indian government to stop terrorist activities in Pakistan. Pakistan must reveal the real face of India before the world community. Merely sending dossiers is not enough.

Finally, Pakistan must act upon the National Action Plan in its true spirit. Pakistani agencies must investigate the allegations against elements who are accused of creating terrorism in neighbouring countries. If accusations are true then these elements must be dealt with an iron hand and if the allegations are baseless and are just a propaganda then the facts must be shared with world community.
