Farooq Abdullah says India and Pakistan are equally involved In each other’s tragedies

All members of the Indian Parliament take the following oath before assuming their seat in Lok Sabha :

“I, _______., having been elected (or nominated) a member of the House of the People do swear in the name of God / solemnly affirm that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of India as by law established, that I will uphold the sovereignty and integrity of India and that I will faithfully discharge the duty upon which I am about to enter.”

Mr Farooq Abdullah, a sitting MP in current Lok Sabha has continuously violated this oath by mortgaging India’s territorial integrity to Kashmiri politics and Pakistan appeasement. He had earlier asked India to give up its legal right over Pakistan Occupied Kashmir on November 28, 2017.

Today he has continued his streak of making misplaced statements. He said :

Our neighbour has its own hates. They think we have divided Pakistan by taking Bangladesh. We were not dividers. The tragedy was in the country itself. It was not our creation. That is the tragedy we still face,” said Abdullah.

Mr Abdullah simplifies complex political, linguistic and religious conflicts that led to creation of Bangladesh into a ‘tragedy’. Of course, the ‘tragedy’ in erstwhile East Pakistan was not our creation. But real tragedies that people are facing in Kashmir are entirely the creation of Pakistan. The first stone was thrown by Pakistan when it invaded independent state of Kashmir. Though there were many opportunities to resolve the conflicts, Pakistan has continuously refused to reach a settlement on Kashmir. He went on to say something more atrocious.

 “And don’t say we are not involved in their tragedy. As much as they are involved in our tragedy, we are also involved in their tragedies. It’s not one-sided.

When Mr Abdullah equated Pakistani and Indian involvement in the creation of tragedies, he is echoing Pakistan’s official ‘victim of terror’ posture. Mr Abdullah is tacitly accusing India of involving in terror and unprovoked LoC crossfire. By making these kind of statements, he is playing into the hands of terrorists and anti-India elements on both sides of the border.

In spite of several gestures of goodwill shown by India, Pakistan has continued to misuse India’s magnanimity. It is quite clear that it sticks to its goal of bleeding India by a thousand cuts and exonerating Pakistan of its sins doesn’t serve India’s interest.
