No number of Bajrangi Bhaijans can save India-Pak Statehood politics
The Bollywood film Bajrangi Bhaijan would have healed a lot of sore throats if it had to, so would have the sad story of Geeta who got lost in Pakistan at the age of 4. But when things have not changed yet, it never will. Ceasefire violations have not ceased, neither have the border infiltrations stopped.
On second thoughts, if we look beyond Statehood politics, both India and Pakistan are in a fix right now. A terrorist has been arrested at the cost 2 jawans and shows an audacity that is really 'commendable', claiming that 'Killing Hindus is fun'.
No wonder, both the countries were stunned for a fraction before releasing a cascade of reactions. India blames, Pakistan denies, but the verbal fight is a mixed bag of reactions.
Whatever the case be, are there really any hopes of healing these sour relations? Perhaps no.
The military training
It was rumored during the 26-11 attacks on India that there are 43 militant camps in Pakistan and leaked diplomatic cables have revealed that little efforts have been made by Pakistan to shut them. Interestingly, 22 of these camps were in Kashmir and that militants crossed the border with ease, which was not possible without any institutional help.
It is also said that 20% of the infiltration bids are successful. Ironically, the 80% arrests that are made in India can be detected and arrested on the Pakistani side too.
Pakistan might be in denial mode, but all evidence including the pace at which the accused of the 26-11 Mumbai terror attack are being dealt with in Pakistan and the fact that they are not being handed over to India, tell a different story.
Jihad in the name of Allah
Consider this 20-year old terrorist who does not know difference between God's work and Jihad. Pakistani militants hire many such youth and are rumored to brainwash them to fight for the wrong cause.
Often considered scapegoats in the hand of State politics, these young people are often lured with money and fame. Like Usman Khan, Kasab too ranted Allah's name while spraying bullets at his victims.
Jihad in the name of politics or religion can serve just one purpose-DEATH. Exchange as many Bajrangi Bhaijans as you want, the situation would remain the same if the mindset is not changed.
