India keeping its utmost Patience even Pakistan’s incessant wrath, extends its hand of generosity, is only for maintaining peace in the region. Stalwart and champion of Peace, Atal Beharee Vajpayee, Prime Minister reiterates its commitment for entire peace.
Nations of the world especially Pakistan have to take the Prime Ministers words in its full spirit. Joining hand with United State of America for total eradication of terrorism, Pakistan is reluctant to take active measures to curb terrorist outfits which have bases in its own territory.
As part of sweeping anti-global terrorist United States designated Pakistan base Lashkae- e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohamed as foreign terrorist outfits. Lashkae-e-T and Jaish-e-Mohamed are the main trouble makers in India which have a solid bases in Pakistan. Relactancy to curb the terrorist outfits with in the territory indicates that Pakistan’s intention to make guerrilla war against India. In any sense it will not allowable. United States asked Pakistan to take action against terrorist organisations operating fro Pakistan and their leaders and finances. Like octopus the hands of terrorist organisation spread over the subcontinent. Timely reaction to check the hands were not taken the entire nation not only plunge in to jeopardy but also directly effect the development programmes of the nation. It is because Prime Minister Atal Beharee Vajpaye voiced ” fight against terrorism is the most important issue in National Agenda and assured we shall use all means and resources at Indian Command to achieve these objects. India did not want war and war is not against Pakistan but against terrorism, but option was open India’s hand was forced by Pakistan.
Keeping with our tradition for peace India initiated cease fire in Jammu & Kashmir with three time extension, resulting a big suffering.
But reciprocate of counterpart Militia regime is adverse. Pakistan’s hypocrisy on the attack of Indian Parliament came out clearly. All the nations of the world came to understand the double different policy of Militia regime regarding the matter of terrorism. Now it is up to the International community to react against the terrorism by way to pressure Pakistan give up its policy of cross border terrorism. Reaffirming the country’s resolve to use all means and resources at the command to root out Pakistan sponsored terrorism, Vajpayee urged the international community to show same attitude which had in Afganaistan. As a protest against the attack on the very symbol of Indian democracy Indian Parliament India had taken a few diplomatic steps: * Recall of Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan * Suspension of Delhi – Lahore Bus Service * Termination of 25 years old Samjhauta Express Train from New Year. This is to avert a war in the amidst of opinion from all nook and corner to retaliate. India is fully aware that the people of India and Pakistan wishes Peace and harmony in the region. On the eve of New Year Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee extends the branch of olive to General Parvez Musharaf,if it has joined the international community to sweep global terrorism. “Shed your anti-India mentality and take effective steps to stop cross border terrorism and you will find India willing to walk more than half a distance to work closely with Pakistan to resolve, through dialogue,any issue, including the contentious issue of Jammu & Kashmir”. These sentiments are expressed by Vajpay in a write up by Vajpayee, “We shall triumph against terrorism ” similar to Musing he had penned from his year-end holiday in Kerala last year. In this scenario it is to Pakistan to respond practically for Indian measures for maintaining permanent peace in the region.
