Sins of the United States of America are the least discussed

President Donald Trump has said that the United States of America has foolishly handed Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years while getting nothing in return, and has pledged to put a stop to it.

But why did the US spend so much money on Pakistan even after knowing that terrorist Osama Bin Laden got safe shelter in Pakistan? One cannot sweep this under the carpet by just saying that US committed a foreign policy blunder. It’s an action by proxy, aiding Islamic Jihad against Bharat.

Let us recall glimpses of history. British purposely favoured Urdu institutions in Bharat. They helped Jinnah create a separate nation based on principle of Islamic separatism. In Africa, they aided Islamic Jihad, then cracked down on it and started preaching Christianity. Throughout history, one can notice a hidden alliance of Islam and Christianity, especially when it comes to ‘pagans’ like Hindus. We cannot deny the crusade wars between Islam & Christianity, but even in Bharat we can see Christian NGOs are the first one to appease Islamic institutions.

When over a thousand Hindus are killed and over a quarter million Hindus ethnically cleansed in Kashmir, or when Christian terrorists kill indigenous people in North-East Bharat for decades, the Western media doesn’t even notice. But watch the worldwide hue and cry when Islamists & Christian evangelists gang up to concoct stories of ‘minority persecution’ in Bharat.

US hypocrisy on fighting terrorism

United States of America considers Saudi Arabia as a vital partner. Let us not restrict this to oil greed because US itself has a great amount of domestic oil resources. US bombarded Iraq on charges of weapons of mass destruction which were never found. But US never bombarded Saudi Arabia although Saudi Arabia is probably the single biggest exporter of Islamist ideology fuelling global terrorism.

In the case of Pakistan, US just gives a stern warning and Pakistan continues to receive financial aid. But in Yemen, the scenario is completely different. US-Saudi coalition is targeting Yemen’s energy and water infrastructure, causing the worst cholera outbreak in history. When the United States of America does evil abroad, it’s almost always shrouded in secrecy and deception.

US aiding terrorist groups

It is well known that the same mujahideen who were funded and armed by US via Pakistan to fight USSR in Afghanistan, turned on the Western world after the end of the Cold War. A lot of money & weaponry given by US to Pakistan has found its way to the jihadi groups who are carrying out Pakistani’s proxy war in Kashmir.

How did ISIS get advanced weapons? US role in funding different dubious actors in the ISIS-led jihadi war against Syria, is well documented. Amnesty International said in its report – “The stockpile of weaponry being used by Islamic militants to kill, terrorize, and attack hapless civilians worldwide actually came from more than 25 countries including China, Russia, US, and the European Union states.”

So how can Bharat expect US to cooperate with honest spirit in fighting the Islamic Jihad of Pakistan?

Drama of putting sanctions on Pakistan by world bodies

In December 2015, The Tribune reported that “more than 300 million euros projects will be setup for rural development of Pakistan.” EU thinks that poverty fuels religious extremism. However, Osama Bin Laden, even though he was a terrorist, belonged to one of the richest families of Saudi Arabia. Hafiz Saeed lives a luxurious life in Pakistan.

US is steadily losing ground in the Afghan war. Delaying a grant of $1 billion to Pakistan and compelling it to take strong action against the Haqqani network will not serve any purpose.

Bharat should not get satisfied with measures like Financial Action Task Force (FATF) contemplating putting Pakistan into its grey list for failing to implement mechanisms against money laundering and terror financing.

This ‘Grey list’ has little practical impact. Despite the fact that during 2012-15 many such actions were taken against Pakistan, still what Bharat got was the Pathankot and Uri attacks.

False allegations by the United States of America on Bharat

Bharat and US already had a serious face off during WTO negotiations. The WTO ruling went against Bharat for favouring local manufacturers in solar development programmes. It shows clear hypocrisy of the West. On the one hand, they pollute the environment far more than the rest of us, and pressurise us to reduce emissions while also trying to kill our domestic manufacturers who are working hard on alternative energy solar projects.

In 2017, a a US government panel accused the Bharatiya police and judiciary of being biased and flawed to “create a pervasive climate of impunity in which religious minorities feel increasingly insecure and have no recourse when religiously-motivated crimes occur.’’

But the reality is very different. Supreme Court of Bharat refused to order investigations against those who perpetrated murder and ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Hindus in 1989-90. Hindus in Kashmir were butchered and drive out by Islamists and yet our judiciary refused to take any action. Yet, the US Government wants the world to believe that the Bharatiya legal system is biased towards Hindus.

Clever ploy

John Dayal is the ex-President of All India Catholic Union. He gave testimony against Bharat in US House of Representatives on April 4, 2014. This man is expert in blaming Hindus all the time. None of the Bharatiya news channels debated this for continuous stretch like they did in Dadri case.

panel

The crack down by Modi Government on Christian NGOs breaking Bharatiya laws became headlines for US and UK newspapers. But has the Western media ever bothered to investigate the immense harm done by the Christian evangelists operating in ‘third-world’ countries? It was amazing to see how interested the Western media was in a localized crime like Akhlaq’s murder. Many Christian pastors are convicted in various serious offences, but still Hindus are seen as aggressors in the eyes of the Western world.

Conclusion

Bharat cannot expect any genuine help from US. Pakistan will continue infiltrating terrorists into Bharat, while the West turns a blind eye. It doesn’t mean we consider the West our enemy, just that we should keep our national interest above all else.
