Why Most Favoured Nation Status For Pakistan?



It was nothing but stupidity of the highest order that India unilaterally granted Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status to Pakistan at a time when Pakistan had completed about 5 to 6 years waging proxy war against India in 1996 especially in Jammu and Kashmir where lakhs of Kashmiri Pandits and other Hindus and even those Muslims who helped them became refugees in their own country and yet Pakistan never granted us the same till date! It was nothing but stupidity of the highest order that India decided to continue MFN status to Pakistan even after Kargil war even after more than 600 soldiers sacrificed their lives in 1999 as per official figures even though unofficially the figure was quite high and our soldiers like Captain Saurav Kalia and 5 soldiers of 4 Jat Regiment were brutally tortured for about 22 days, blinded, maimed and then killed and after cutting their private parts put them in their mouth and handed over their bodies back to India and all politicians ruling in Centre felt proud in doing so and the Pakistani invader Gen Pervez Musharraf was given a red carpet welcome and treated like a royal emperor! It was nothing but stupidity of the highest order that India decided to continue with MFN status to Pakistan even after terrorists sponsored directly by Pakistan attacked our Parliament in which we lost many of our brave cops and soldiers!

It was nothing but stupidity of the highest order that even after our plane was hijacked and we had to free dreaded terrorists including Maulana Masood Azhar who founded Jaish-e-Mohammad in 1999 that politicians ruling in Centre decided to continue with MFN status for Pakistan! It was nothing but stupidity of the highest order that even after terrorists trained in Pakistan attacked Akshardham temple and killed innocent pilgrims not sparing even children and women and killing then after asking them to sing national anthem did politicians ruling in Centre decided not to withdraw MFN status for Pakistan as they treasured good relations with Pakistan!

It was nothing but stupidity of the highest order that Pakistan regularly sent its Border Action Team (BAT) to India to most brutally kill Indian soldiers, behead them and then take away their head as trophy yet politicians ruling in Centre decided to continue with MFN status for Pakistan as relations with Pakistan were more important for them than the dignity of our soldiers! It was nothing but stupidity of the highest order that even after repeated killing of our soldiers and attack on Mumbai which is our financial capital on 26/11/2008 did politicians ruling in Centre decided to continue with MFN status for Pakistan as if nothing had happened!

It was nothing but stupidity of the highest order that when terrorists trained in Pakistan attacked Pathankot in which we lost our soldiers and Army officers of the rank of Major and Colonel that politicians ruling in Centre decided not just to continue with MFN status for Pakistan but also decided to welcome Pakistan’s notorious and dreaded Inter Services Intelligence officials to come to India and visit the site where terrorists had attacked even though Pakistan never allowed India to interrogate those accused in Pakistan!

It was nothing but stupidity of the highest order that even after facing repeated attacks from Pakistan including the one on Jammu and Kashmir Assembly did politicians ruling in Centre decided to continue with MFN status for Pakistan? It was nothing but stupidity of the highest order that even after losing more than a lakh soldiers in last more than 30 years of proxy war sponsored directly by Pakistan did politicians ruling in Centre decided to continue with MFN status for Pakistan! 

How can any sovereign country behave like this? How can any self-respecting nation behave like this? How can we allow Pakistan to take all benefits from Indus Water Treaty from 1960 till 2019 even though they are mercilessly killing our soldiers and masterminding attacks on them and innocent people?

Is it some foreign power at whose behest all this is happening? Why the hell then did we grant them MFN status at the first place and that too unilaterally? Why we never raised the brutal killing of our soldiers in international forum as was promised by former late PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee and the then Defence Minister Jaswant Singh to the parents of late Captain Saurav Kalia?

Why can’t we nuke all relations with Pakistan? Why for politicians ruling in Centre are relations with Pakistan more important than our soldiers? Why play sports with Pakistan when they send terrorists to kill our soldiers after training and arming them to the teeth and their soldiers especially BAT come to Indian side of border to behead our soldiers and carry away their head to be played as football or presented as trophy to Pakistani generals as we saw during 2000 when the head of an Indian soldier was presented to Gen Musharraf by dreaded Al Qaeda terrorist Iliyas Kashmiri who earlier was in Pakistan’s BAT and to whom Gen Musharraf gave Rs 1 lakh as cash prize for presenting him a severed head of an Indian soldier as was reported in many English dailies?

Why have any kind of exchanges with them or business of any kind? Why should Wagah border retreat ceremony not be scrapped? Why should Kartarpur corridor be opened to which Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh had voiced his strong disapproval?

Why presence of dreaded Khalistani terrorists who were present with Pakistani Army Chief Gen Bajwa while border was being opened not compel the government to cancel it? Worst of all, why this MFN status for Pakistan has been so brazenly extended to Pakistan inspite of repeated and merciless killings of our soldiers and never scrapped till date? Pakistan must be declared a terror state!
