Will Modi stop selling what sells best? Hatred against Pakistan

11 29 0

Imran Jan |

The rise of strongmen around the world is becoming a common phenomenon now. However, the blind support for the bigotry and hate-driven politics is unprecedented. Benjamin Netanyahu won an unprecedented fifth term. He is set to become the longest serving Prime Minister in Israeli history, even longer than David Ben-Gurion who was the country’s first Prime Minister often described as “Israel’s George Washington”. All this despite the corruption scandals.

In India, we just saw Narendra Modi claim victory in the behemoth Indian elections despite the embarrassment caused to Modi and India in the wake of the dogfight with Pakistan, where an Indian fighter plane was shot down by Pakistan and its pilot Abhinandan captured. Later on, he was returned in a mind-boggling swift manner.

The conflict between Pakistan and India is not based on some external stimulus that causes people on both sides to hate each other. The hatred is very deep-rooted.

Prime Minister Imran Khan had said that the chances of achieving peace between Pakistan and India would be higher if BJP wins the election. That has happened. BJP has achieved a landslide victory. I do not know what drives Imran Khan’s opinion about this but a little use of common sense coupled with a little bit of history lesson would help disillusion any Pakistani has wishing for peace with India. The harsh truth is that now that Modi would be unshackled by re-election worries, his hatred laden rhetoric and actions would become even more pronounced.

I congratulate Prime Minister Modi on the electoral victory of BJP and allies. Look forward to working with him for peace, progress and prosperity in South........
