If we run the country on assembly elections’ results, the country won’t run. We need policies for the future of the nation, not temporary solutions because elections are here or elections are there
You talked about US failures in Pakistan and repeatedly said that Pakistan has done much better than the US. Maybe, one of the reasons is that Pakistan is helping the Taliban which is killing the US soldiers. Next time, since you are on the defence committee, maybe you want to sit with the mothers and wives who have lost their sons and husbands’ and explain to them that why you take money from the US and then give to Taliban to kill the US soldiers.
Now coming to Kashmir since I am from Gilgit-Baltistan, I see you as a proxy of Pakistani Military and not representing Kashmir. Pakistan has proxies in Jammu and Kashmir. They have weapons and explosives. You come here as a proxy with sweet talk. Everytime the money dries up, you show up here with blackmail, Russia talk, China talk, Iran. I request the US to get out of this vicious cycle. Pakistan is not good for any country and it has done no good to the United States. It is not good for the people of Kashmir. You occupy one-third of Kashmir and an occupier cannot be a friend of Kashmir on the other side. You have been exploiting resources in Gilgit-Baltistan.
Without paying royalty or compensation, a single penny for the last 70 years, I call you a thief in Gilgit-Baltistan. And a thief in Gilgit-Baltistan cannot be a friend in Jammu and Kashmir.
The only thing that is good is that Pakistani Army wants to maintain a status quo because that is a money making machine. UN resolution wants you to withdraw, that’s the first prerequisite. It’s a one-page document. The first prerequisite is, you get out of Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Kashmir and then the people of Kashmir, United Nation and the Indian Government will sit down to form a mechanism to hold the plebiscite and this double talk that you have been doing in Afghanistan, Kashmir and US, it needs to be exposed and I tell you wherever you go, there would be someone from Gilgit-Baltistan exposing Pakistan.
At best, it is now a body that can be described as an interesting and random mix of ad-hocism, scrambling and political paralysis. This global governance architecture now calls for comprehensive reform
Pakistani artists are secondary. What comes first for me is my nation. I neither know nor would I want to know anyone else other than my nation. Hum kalaakar desh ke saamne khatmal ki tarah hai. Hamari keemat kuch nahi hai. (We artistes are like mere termites when compared to our nation as a whole. We are least important people). Nation comes first and that’s how it should be for one and all. I have been a part of Indian army for two-and-a-half years and I know that our Jawans fighting at the border are the real heroes. Our soldiers are the biggest heroes in the world…We actors aren’t the real heroes and people shouldn’t pay heed to what we actors say. We shouldn’t be taken seriously. People should stop paying heed to actors who keep blabbering about Pakistani artists. Don’t give too much importance to those actors as they aren’t deserving of that importance.
The way Pakistan behaves is because they have India phobia, there are military and civilian tensions and there is trust deficit between Afghanistan and Pakistan…After the formation of the national unity government, we did our best to go and work with Pakistan and we tried to open a new chapter of relations. On India phobia and the military and civilian tensions of the Pakistani leaders, this is something that they (Pakistan) have to sort it out
It is already becoming clear that a chapter which had a Western beginning will have to have an Indian ending if it is not to end in self-destruction of the human race. At this supremely dangerous moment in human history , the only way of salvation is the ancient Hindu way. Here we have the attitude and spirit that can make it possible for the human race to grow together in to a single family.
The last stage but one of every civilisation, is characterised by the forced political unification of its constituent parts, into a single greater whole.
