Pakistan Confesses


Two statements coming directly from the parliament of Pakistan humiliated the Pakistani establishment. Both of them related to India made much headlines in Indian newspapers. The comments were actually two confessions. One ruined Pakistan claim of tough stance against India and the other confirmed its direct involvement in sponsoring terror against India.


While speaking in the Parliament Ayaz Sidiq of opposition PML-N claimed in that Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa's "legs were shaking" while Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told a meeting of parliamentary leaders that India was about to attack their country, as he recounted the events of February 2019 meeting during which the Imran Khan government decided to release Indian Air Force pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman.


The second statement which came as a response to this expose directly came from the establishment. Pakistani minister on Wednesday admitted that Islamabad was behind last year's Pulwama attack on Indian soil which lead to the killing of 40 Indian soldiers. This is the first time that Pakistan directly confesses its role promoting terror in Kashmir. For decades Pakistan has denied this. This confession comes at a very crucial time. Remember Pakistan's economy is in big trouble and it has been under constant scanner of the FATF which has put Pakistan under Grey List. This will only create trouble for Pakistan as this can be considered direct proof against Pakistan's involvement in terror.


Both these two statements can be considered strategic & diplomatic wins for India. Strategically, India not only bombed terrorist locations in Balakot but also got its fighter pilot back without any considerable loss. This defied Pak's consistent rhetoric of its nuclear capability. India went inside Pakistan, inflicted cost and that without any trouble from the world community.

As far as diplomacy goes, India has been consistently campaigning against Pakistan's involvement in nourishing terrorism. The confession from the Pak's minister will only make India's case strong and if the FATP takes some extreme steps against Pakistan it will only help India. After all how can the Pakistani PM defend Pakistan's involvement in terrorism when his fellow parliamentarian has not openly accepted but celebrated Pulwama ?
