Brig. (Retd.) Saeed Minhas (Defense Analyst): The enduring enmity between India and Pakistan since 1947 remains unquestionable. The ruling Indian government, led by the BJP and closely aligned with the RSS, has consistently been espousing an anti-Pakistan stance. In 2019, India orchestrated a false flag operation in an attempt to tarnish Pakistan's image, though this deceitful maneuver was eventually exposed. With impending general elections in India and the forthcoming UN General Assembly sessions, Indian Prime Minister Modi is once again endeavoring to construct a narrative that portrays Pakistan as a terrorist state to garner public support. It is high time to raise awareness at the international level regarding treatment of minorities in India and the involvement of Indian forces in state-sponsored terrorism in Kashmir. India's aggressive posture toward Pakistan is merely an attempt to divert attention from its internal affairs. During the G20 summit, restrictions were held on dignitaries' access to various parts of India, in order to shield them from witnessing the plight of the Indian populace.
Brig. (Retd.) Raashid Wali (Defense Analyst): The Indian government's alignment with the RSS and its perceived parallels with Nazi ideology should be a source of concern for everyone. There are historical instances of direct involvement of the BJP and RSS in violent activities, to promote the Hindutva ideology and secure electoral support. Opposition to the current Indian government's policies is widespread among political parties in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. India is trying to orchestrate a false flag operation to tarnish Pakistan's global reputation. India's policies could potentially escalate into a nuclear conflict between two regional nuclear powers. Pakistan is committed to peace, stability, and adherence to UN resolutions supporting the right to self-determination for the Kashmiri people. Indian government should prioritize improving the well-being of its citizens instead of engaging in conspiracies against Pakistan.
Ali Raza Syed (Chairman Kashmir Council, EU): It is time that Western nations take stock of the human rights abuses occurring in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The European parliamentarians have also brought up the Kashmir issue in global discussions. It is imperative to unequivocally condemn the brutal actions perpetrated by Indian forces in all their various forms and manifestations. In the context of the prevailing geopolitical alliances, Pakistan needs to exercise caution and judiciously select its affiliations. It has become a recurring theme in Indian politics to exploit an anti-Pakistan narrative as a means to secure electoral support. Conversely, Pakistan has consistently exhibited patience while diligently raising the Kashmir issue on numerous international platforms, including the United Nations General Assembly.
