BJP State Spokesperson on Kashmir Affairs, Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo,
Jammu, May 04: Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, BJP State Spokesperson on Kashmir Affairs in a statement released today at Party headquarters at Jammu said that the United Nations Security Council declaring Masood Azhar as the Global Terrorist initiates a herculean task for Pakistan to accomplish its "international promises" to the satisfaction of the world powers. This time Pakistan, despite insistence, could not persuade China to whisk away under the umbrella of Veto Power in the Security Council.
The Resolution of France, to declare the dreaded terror machines a global terrorist, with the tacit understanding of the three major powers, ie US, UK and Russia gathered unanimous support of the remaining ten non-permanent members of the council. China, otherwise also, needed to play safely in the background of what happened in the neighbourhood a few months ago that had the approval and hand of Jaish-e-Mohammad in it. It now becomes incumbent upon Pakistan to be answerable to the neighboorhood first, keeping in view the recent situations emerging in India and Sri Lanka.
We demand that Pakistan keep its hands off from the internal matters of India in Kashmir. Since India has proven its intent after the Pulwama carnage to go to any extent possible, Pakistan is asked to showcase its intent to bring terrorists, active on its soil, before the justice system. Their terror infrastructure, financial mechanism and links with the politico-military establishment require to be severed. The world powers including India may demand to bring the culprits presently roaming freely in Pakistan before the global justice platform.
Pakistan also should come clean on the facts as it was recently termed as a country that "created terrorist groups to be a tool in their struggle against India" by former CIA director, Michael Morell. The impact of Pakistan's decision to adopt terrorism as a part of its foreign policy and "policy in terms of India" had a huge toll in Kashmir after Punjab three decades ago.
Chrungoo, who is the Bharatiya Janata Party's State Spokesperson on Kashmir Affairs and presentations made it clear that the future government in India will be ordained to pursue the existing policy of "zero tolerance against terror" and "terror and talks won't go together". There is no policy alternative than what has been crafted in the current context by the present government with a focus on the earlier commitment of Pakistan that "it will not allow the soil under its control to be used against India".
The perpetual nature of policy against terror evolved in the government think-tanks will continue to pursue the same goals that the present government in India followed with complete focus. Terrorism coupled with secessionism and indoctrination in Kashmir will be wiped out with the help of instrumentalities of the State and the social support. Pakistan is asked in its own interest to desist from the repetition of 1971 and Imran Khan, the PM of Pakistan needs to come out of the "Yahya Khan shadow" as soon as possible lest "seven states doctrine" in context of Pakistan may regenerate itself as soon as possible.
