Stupidity unlimited: India ‘concerned’ about Balochistan

I was shocked to hear the press briefing by the MEA guy Navtej Sarna expressing India’s ‘deep concerns’ into the recent trouble in Pakistan’s Balochistan province following the killing of Baloch tribal chief Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti. Well, the world knows the brutal campaign the military junta is carrying out in Pakistan and the province has been historically a hotbed of secessionist movements is also not unknown to the international community.

Is it tit-for-tat for Pakistan’s interference in India’s affairs (read Kashmir)? Well, the world knows how Pakistan is actively supporting and sponsoring terror campaigns against India and has been doing so for over two decades now. By adopting the current stance, India has lost out significantly on being on the moral high ground when it came to India-Pakistan trouble in front of the world community. The Indian government’s act was like cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Indian agencies like the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) might be involved in fermenting trouble there, but remaining silent on Pakistani internal affairs would have been golden. Now, the world community will be inclined to believe that India is behind the current crisis in Balochistan. Already, Pakistan had been accusing India of involvement in terror activities against Pakistan. Not surprisingly now, Pakistani authorities have latched on this stupid act.

It is highly embarrassing to be an Indian now under the present government that has an IQ of a squirrel when it comes to foreign affairs. It has put over a billion Indians into shame. Does the government realize this?

Shame, shame!

Nah, it was more important that India say something, in order to garner the goodwill of the Baloch people. Just like we were saying things loudly in 1971. Baloch will act more confidently if they know we're supporting them.

A shame indeed! When, India is looking at nothing less than a shot at the UN General Secretary Post and a permanent berth on the Security Council, you would expect them to rise above petty politics.

Anyways, as written in my article it is time for Pakistan to get its house in order, even though India may be affected in the long term. Cause Pakistan is burning now!

I disagree with San above, when did India ever care about others, let alone its own citizens who are being treated worse in many countries! I guess India should give its own citizens some support before siding with Baluchistan!

i just wanted to respond to your comment that you left on my blog with regards to the baloch issue. I agree indias interference in the news as well as the events of balochistan is uncalled for.
However, having recently returned from Pakistan a week ago, I would like to enlighten one of the commentators on your blog as to the situation there which is nothing even close to the country being "on fire".
Thanks for dropping by and commenting, feel free to share your opinions in the future as well.

Cheers

I would like to enlighten you my friend - Cocaine. You sure are high above ground reality when you said nothing is burning in Pakistan.

I too am well informed about Pakistan - and if nothing was happening how come the whole of Pakistan including Islamabad and Lahore was crippled in a strike decrying the death of Nawab Bugti?

I suggest you stay in Canada - and comment on some traffic problem there. So much for ground reality! Cheers and have some more of that Cocaine - will do wonders to you!
