In another Indian foreign policy win, Pakistan has been put on the global terror finance watch list. However after heavy push back from its supporting countries – Saudi Arabia and the GCC, China and Turkey, this action was delayed to start in June. The significance of this move is several – it means that officially Pakistan either support or is involved in terrorism activities and as a result funds flow in to and out of Pakistan will be heavily scrutinized by banks and their respective countries. Borrowing funds from overseas will be both difficult and expensive and there are other negatives.
NOW EVERY PAKISTANI ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD (which compares itself to India and feels itself to be unlike Afghanistan) WILL FEEL THE BLACK MARK OF THIS ACTION.

But… we still have many problems and societal issues: poverty and illiteracy; schools and/or teachers who don’t teach; bad living and working conditions; terrorism; NGOs with foreign money trying to destroy the country; corruption; many places government does not work; unnecessary protests by students and political parties with no concrete or practical suggestions; rapes; other crimes; too many illegals; lack of safety; people selling blood, kidneys or children for money; a large population; some who do anything to beat up the country but don’t contribute; a legal system that is too slow; some may say a Supreme Court that feels totally unaccountable; and many more.
Instead let us ask ourselves: WHAT IS THE ONE THING I (EACH PERSON) WILL DO TO MAKE INDIA A BETTER PLACE IN THE COMING YEAR?

USA seems to have suddenly got concerned about tensions and unresolved issues between India and Pakistan, and now wants to jump in and try to negotiate. India promptly snubbed USA as it said it has no role in the bilateral issues and ties between the two countries. What USA has to keep in mind in that whatever issue it has “meddled in” has only got worse with hundreds of thousands of deaths and billions of dollars of destruction. Recent example include the situation in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, most of South America and on and on. Indians would rightly agree that the only role for USA is to STOP SUPPLYING WEAPONS TO Pakistan and get them to STOP SUPPORTING TERRORISM over the past decades! What is so hard about that – USA does not even need India’s support!

After the appointment of the new Army Chief, leaders of some opposition parties have questioned the Government’s decision as seniority principle was bypassed, which by the way has happened in the past under other governments. One critic who is close to the Congress party even went on to suggest that one person had been bypassed as he belonged to the minority community. Luckily others spoke in favor of the government. The government appointment seems to be based on the current and future threats – the biggest of which is in J&K and the Pakistan border. Lt. General Bipin Rawat was appointment as he has enormous experience as an infantry officer, in counter-terrorism, and along Line of Control. This is the need of hour given the ongoing terror issues in J&K and army deployment in J&K and Line of Control.

The North East of India is totally ignored by all outside it. Reams of paper and liters of ink have been expended on the terrorists professing to work in the name of Islam and Christ. Church organisations and foreign NGOs have provided funding for several if not most banned militant and armed outfits in the north-east. Countries supporting these causes include Netherlands, Thailand, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, South Korea, Australia, England, Philippines, Sweden, Belgium, US and UK.

BBC blames India and our PM for protests in Nepal, for India’s objection to Nepal’s constitution and for not improving relations with Pakistan. BBC has NOTHING TO SAY for cross border terrorism and for the low intensity attacks? This is after their country – Britain has made any situation they are involved with worse. Good thing is BBC’s views are ignored by the masses.

Recent infiltration of jihadis and terror attacks shows Pakistan is determined to push India. Terror attacks are usually well coordinated by Pakistan’s military and ISI. While the immediate provocation may range from wanting to scuttle the NSA talks to keeping jihadi clients like LeT happy or both, Pakistan’s role as a launch pad is in disputable. Reports are that Pakistan’s powerful army is at odds with PM Nawaz Sharif and may want to scuttle peace talks with India.
