Sweets in Wagah, Bullets in Poonch: Pak celebrates Independence Day
New Delhi: Pride of being free, pleasure of being united, satisfaction of being together and respect of nation; these are the emotions that truly mark the Independence of a country and national days are a reflection of the emotions that the countrymen carry for the nation.
The case, however, seems false with Pakistan, who on the 70th Independence Day is still a slave of enmity. When the country should have stood united to spread compassion and peace on their prominent day, they are busy sending their soldiers to call war and that too against its big brother India.
Pakistan and its enmity:
- Pakistan Army violated ceasefire at the Line of Control near Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir on its 70thIndependence Day in Small hours on Sunday. The country has been resorting to unprovoked firing at Indian positions on the border every year on Independence Days of both the nations since the armed violence started in the valley in early 1990s.
- “Is sal ka Jashn-e-Azadi hum Kashmir ki Azadi ke nam karte hain (We must dedicate this Independence Day to Kashmir’s freedom),” Abdul Basit Pakistan’s High Commissioner to Delhi said on Sunday during the Independence Day celebration. His statement very clearly expressed the intentions of the neighbouring country.
- Pak President Mamnoon Hussain on Sunday said the country would continue to support the Kashmiris in their bid for the right to self-determination.
- While India talks to curb terrorism, Pakistan paid condolences to Indian terrorists Burhan Wahi after he was killed by Indian Army.
Pakistan is forcing India to carry the ‘blood for blood’ approach to avert its foul intentions of shielding terrorism and dispersing it to an intolerable extent. It is definitely not feasible to celebrate country’s independence by seizing the liberty of neighbors or as we earlier said by “distributing sweets in Wagah and firing bullets in Poonch”.
