INDIA-PAKISTAN TRADE, PROS AND CONS
Since Pakistan was born in 1947, it has been seen that India has constantly been trying to undermine and bringing it to knees because it never accepted its existence by heart. A big factor in these circumstances is some politicians and so called ulems of Pakistan who are on payroll of India. Just after the partition India merged the states f Kashmir, Junagadh and Hyderabad in it by force. India did not pay Pakistan’s portion of currency and military equipment honestly. It was Quaid-e-Azam’s wisdom which helped Pakistan to stand upon its feet. As soon as Quaid-e-Azam passed away India’s representatives in Pakistan, Majlis-e-Ahrar-e-Islam to name as an example started there job with full vigor. In 1953 the started campaign against Ahmadiyya Muslim sect. In bloody riots many innocent Ahmadis were put to death. That was the first time armed forces were called in to control the riots which they did successfully. But these Indian agents did nit remain idol. They kept on conspiring against the government. As a result no stable government could br formed and in 1958 armed forces took over the government under the leadership of Ayub Khan.
Although I accept that it was not a democratic government but one has also to accept this bitter reality that the period 1958-1969 was the best period in the history of Pakistan and still is. No other ruler, civilian or military, has been able to bring that glory to Pakistan. Again the enemies of Pakistan could not bear it. in 1969 they found a figure in the person of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto to destabilise the government and so an obnoxious general, Yahya Khan took over. That was the worst part of Pakistan’s history. All the civilian and military people joined together. conniving with India to lose eastern part of our country. Then Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto became a hero and took over what remained of Pakistan. Bhutto closed the doors of jobs for competent people and distributed them among incompetent flatterers resulting in a further collapse of economy whic was already in shackles because of the 1971 war and separation of the eastern part in the result.
Bhutto instead of holding fresh elections convened the national assembly with the elected members from the western part in which he had the majority. This assembly passed 1973 constitution. Even the ink of this constitution was not dry when the amendments started coming in. With 2nd amendment The Ahmadi Muslims were declared “Not Muslims”, and this was due to the conspiracy of Mullas. Jamiai-r-Ulema-e Islam, Jamaat-e-Islami, Ahrar-e-Islam to name a few. This threw the country in the wave of sect ism. Bhutto’s government was toppled by General Zia-ul-Haq. His rule was worst in terms of religious discrimination and harassment and ethical and lingual division in the country.
Eleven years rule of Zia-ul-Haq brought the country at almost 1971 situation.When God Almighty heard from his people and put him to death in a plane crash along with so many other generals. His body was not even found because it was burned to ashes. Then Bhutto’s daughter Benazir came to power.During the period following Benazir and Nawaz Sharif ruled the country in turns but no stable government could be established until Pervez Musharraf took over. He tried to stabilize the economy and somehow he was successful but hidden enemies could not digest this. He had to hold elections and as a result he had to leave the government and the country as well.
Now the Pakistan Peoples Party was again in power. The economy of the country started stumbling in Bhutto’s rule and came to shackles during the rule of his legacy. During the civilian rule after Zia-ul-Haq US dollar rose from 40 to 60 rupees. Durin g Musharraf’s rule it remained steady vat 60 rupees and now it is nearing 100 rupees.
I had to relate all this history because with the exception of Ayub and Musharraf eras we see Indias intrusion in the country very visible. Now Pakistan has declared India the most favourable nation and has destroyed its own economy۔ Is it patriotism or traitory. But who is there to decide this. It is being said that worst democracy is better than best dictatory. To me the only better ruler is the one who is loyal to the country and not loyal to himself and his family only, no matter a democratic or a dictator. If a dictator is loyal to the country and does well for the people of the country then no doubt people will admire him and they will never even dream of democracy.
The people ruling Pakistan now are a bunch of corrupt people who care only for themselves. They don’t have any sympathy for the common man. There is no gas, no electricity, no industry in the country and we are trading with India as a most favourable nation. Who will be the beneficiary in this situation? It will be India as a whole or the corrupt people in the Pakistan government and Indian agents in the country. God save Pakistan and its people, Ameen
