India insults Pak HC in Delhi
Ithe N what could be called a despicable act contrary to the diplomatic norms,
Indian authorities on Wednesday barred Pakistan’s High Commissioner Abdul Basit to attend a diplomatic gathering arranged by the United Nations in Nagpur. The unacceptable excuse given by the authorities was that the Hindu extremist organization RSS had threatened against allowing the Pakistani High Commissioner into the gathering - a manifestation of growing extremism in a country which claims to be the largest democracy of the world but is failing to provide protection to the diplomatic corps.
In fact it is not the first time that the Pakistani High Commissioner has been stopped from attending an event; rather in the past also he, on a number of occasions, was not allowed to attend particular events due to the threats hurled by the extremist outfit RSS. More so, incidences have also surfaced in the past where threatening letters were also issued to the Pakistani High Commissioner. All this smacks of foul play and deliberate attempts which amount to insulting the Pakistani High Commissioner - the symbol of the state of Pakistan. While taking strict notice of these incidents, Islamabad should lodge a strong protest with the Indian High Commissioner who in fact has all the liberty to move and attend functions everywhere in Pakistan. Since the installation of Narendra Modi, the RSS has been given a sort of free hand to especially target Muslims and orchestrate plans to defame Pakistan. Similarly, other minorities including Christians are also not safe from the cruel and beastly hands of the RSS, which in fact has turned into a monster due to the consistent patronage of political leadership. Given the dreadful crimes committed by the RSS, it will not be an exaggeration to say that the outfit has become more dangerous than the Afghan Taliban and even the ISIS, posing threat to the very unity of India. It is time for India to stop pointing accusatory fingers on Pakistan and take steps towards reining in extremist and terrorist elements within its own fold.

to describe Pakistan and Afghanistan as conjoined twins. Pakistan very rightly considers that peace in Afghanistan is a guarantee of peace in Pakistan; therefore it has been striving for the same with full sincerity. Enemies of Afghanistan and Pakistan don’t want to see peace and prosperity in the region. They would see the area steeped in chaos and turmoil so that they may fish in the troubled waters.
Sadly, the dominant role of Pakistan in Afghanistan related Quadrilateral Coordination Group (QCG) has been sabotaged by our ill-wishers. Killing of Mullah Akhtar Mansur has badly derailed dialogue process and violence is likely to surge in Afghanistan. It seems that a dual game is on to pressurize Pakistan to bring Afghan Taliban either for the dialogue or to take action against them. On the other hand, through killing of Mullah Mansur, practically all avenues for peace have been blocked. Hostile nexus is being built and a new great game has again been initiated to limit choices for Pakistan.
The situation is rife for calamity. The same forces, which belie Pakistan’s valiant fight against terror and negate its huge sacrifice, would rather see Pakistan squirm under the impact of more terror attacks. With success in Shawwal valley, Pakistan’s Armed Forces have successfully rooted out militants from its soil. These great successes have been achieved through sacrifice, support
