It is such a strange fact that, a country born out of India’s own flesh and blood should be so very rebellious against India.
In the year 1947, when India got its independence from the British rule the leaders of the Muslim community in India demanded a separate state for themselves and they got it.
Pakistan was born by the hacking off parts of India. However it is so very sad, and an irony of India’s fate that even after getting their demands fulfilled, Pakistan has never since independence been genuinely friendly with India – its may we call, Creator.
Ever since the year 1947, the relations of India and Pakistan have never been cordial. Pakistan has always been indulging in skirmishes small and big on the border with India. To this, India has also been continuously retaliating thus making the relationship rather bitter.
The India Pakistan relationship can be compared to the relations of two brothers fighting for property rights and indulging in all possible tantrums.
This continuous bad feeling between India and Pakistan has resulted in Pakistan’s latest plans of terrorists’ attacks on India. This continued cold war shows the ultimate culmination of rage of Pakistan against India.
For the last more than ten years and more, India has been facing continuous terrorist’s attacks in Kashmir resulting in untold misery and an exodus of the minority community from Kashmir. With this sort of a continued tense relationship what could be the finale could be anyone’s guess.
One point that is beyond a layman’s understanding is, how, a country so small and created by India’s goodwill could remain so very hostile and rebellious against India. How can any human become and then remain for so long a rebel against its own mentor and creator is beyond understanding and any reasoning.
The latest sign of Pakistan’s hostile attitude against India could be witnessed when the Indian Prime Minister went on a friendly visit to Pakistan. At that juncture it is believed that, when the Prime Minister was in Lahore on a peace mission plans were being finalized for the Kargil operations.
This truly and vividly depicts the mindset of the Pakistani Government, and the relations of India and Pakistan.
It is, I must say India’s bad luck that, a neighbour who should be the dearest and closest friend is one of India’s most bitter enemies.
With such a neighbour only God knows what the fate of the two countries would be in the prospect of a war. Besides this, it is so sad that, even after all the cajoling of the neighbour it has not become a friend. Instead, with the passage of so many years, Pakistan appears to be more bitter against India than ever before.
It is beyond simple understanding how this little neighbour of ours can be made happy with us. God help us as, it is very important for both of us to know that a neighbour cannot be kept at bay, and neither can be kept unhappy. God help both of us.
