“The art of war teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him; not on the chance of his not attacking, but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable.” — Field Marshall Roberts.
The term ‘Terroristan’ for Islamic State of Pakistan was first coined by India’s First Secretary to the United Nations (UN) – Ms Eenam Gambhir while replying to the Debates of UN General Assembly on 21st September, 2017. The term now has gained global recognition as the UN Security Council in its Resolution No-1267 designating Pak-based Jihadi terror outfit ‘Jaish-e-Mohammed’ (Army of Mohammed) as well as it’s chief Maulana Masood Azhar in its list of global terror outfit or global terrorist for clamping strong international sanctions against it. With this move by UNSC which is the outcome of India’s renewed counter-terror diplomatic efforts under PM Modi, ‘Terroristan’ Pakistan now has the rare infamous record of being ‘Home’ to 15 of the 21 globally declared jihadi-terror outfits. Indeed, Pakistan as ‘Terroristan’ or ‘Mecca of Global Jihadi Terrorism’ has the notorious distinction of being the ‘epicenter’ of global jihad and almost all terror acts across the globe, including recent Easter-bombings in Sri Lanka, connect its ‘umbilical cord’, quite literally, with Secular India’s next door tyrannical ‘Islamic Terroristan’. So much so that even its all-weather friend, Red China now compelled to finally accept this reality by dropping all its previous ‘red-herrings’ in shielding JeM mastermind Maulana Masood Azhar. Post-Pulwama and post-Balakot, a resilient ‘New India’ under the globally lauded leadership of PM Modi showed its unputdownable resolve in eliminating terror by hitting at its very breeding grounds which came like a whiff of fresh air in straitjacketed cum suffocating passivities of an ‘Old India’.
It is this palpable determination of a ‘New India’ against the cancerous Jihadi-terror emanating from Islamic Pakistan that today the entire ‘who’s who’ of global community unanimously stand in unison in support of India’s hitting hard sponsors of jihadi terror right on its Bull’s eye! Time has now come for final ‘surgical strike’ on ‘Terroristan’ by the ‘New India’!
Most citizens of India and even its highly read but ‘wannabe politically-correct’ intelligentia are almost naive or gullible, either unconsciously or deliberately, about the actual character or nature of Jihadi-terrorism aiming at total obliteration of a Secular-Democratic India by the ‘Terroristan’ Islamic Pakistan which itself is an artificial ‘Acronymic’ State or an ‘Ideological Superstructure’. The very birth of Islamic Pakistan as ‘Dar-ul-Islam’ (Land of Islam) by M.A. Jinnah and his band of Islamic fundamentalists like Abu-ala Maududi, Allama Iqbal etal was a declaration of Jihad (Islamic Doctrine of War against Infidels) against ‘Hindu Majority India’ being ‘Dar-ul-Harb’ (Land of Warfare). Both Qurban Ali Khan of erstwhile Intelligence Bureau (IB) of undivided India who fled to Pakistan stealing almost all secret IB files as the founder of Pak’s IB as wells as Pak Army Brigadier S.K. Malik’s book ‘Quranic Concept of War’(1979) unequivocally advocated a State-sponsored Jihad against Secular Hindu-Majority Indian State, not as a declared war but as an undeclared ‘proxy-war’. The objective was loud and clear – let’s bleed India by inflicting thousands cuts by unleashing an incessant reign of terror, leading to the ‘Balkanization’ of a beleaguered India, sooner than later. During anti-Soviet ‘Jihad’ by US-Saudi-Pak Axis and under the Islamic ‘puritanical’ regime of then Pak Army Chief Zia-ul Haque, ‘Terroristan’ Pakistan came out with a new India-centric Islamic Jihadi Doctrine i.e. ‘Gazwa-e-Hind’ (Final Conquest of India under Islamic Rule) sourced from a particular reference in a Hadith (compilation of sayings/actions of Prophet Muhammad as Sunnah/Sunnat) that guaranteed place in ‘Zannat’ (Heaven) are bestowed to all those ‘Mujahideens’ (Islamic Warriors/Jihadists) who would attain ‘Shahadat’ (Martyrdom) in waging war/jihad against the ‘Hind’ (India). This lesser known or less talked about Islamic Doctrine of War against India today serves as the proverbial pivot or linchpin or very oxygen of all Jihadi outfits viz JeM, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen etc of ‘Terroristan’ Pakistan’s proverbial ‘Terror-Industrial Complex’. ‘Gazwa-e-Hind’ or GeH is the main motivator propelling wannabe Jihadists not just in Pakistan but from across Islamic World viz Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria etc to launch Jihadi terror against ‘Infidel India’ as Islam’s biggest enemy. Confessions of captured Pak terrorists by Indian agencies only confirm it.
As a ‘New India’ under PM Modi sheds the ‘kid-glove’ anti-terror policies of an ‘Old India’ with redoubled multi-pronged actionable ‘iron-fist’ policies like highly successful ‘Operation All Out’ in weeding out Pak backed jihadis in Kashmir as well as complementing it with anti-terror diplomatic feats like listing Pakistan in ‘Grey-list’ of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) or US sanctions against it etc, thus, shivers down the spine of ‘Terroristan’. Post-Pulwama, the ‘Most Favoured Nation’ (MFN) status given to ‘Terroristan’ Pakistan was withdrawn by the Modi-Government as a result of which it has been hit by hyper-inflation and a bankrupt Pakistan’s once flourishing ‘Fake Indian Currency’ industry by ISI has already been in tatters, thanks to PM Modi’s audacious ‘Demonetization’ move. Finally, the huge successes of ‘surgical strikes’ by the ‘New India’ in the aftermath of both Uri and Pulwama acted as the proverbial nails in the coffin of ‘Terroristan’ Pakistan, resulting in its complete global isolation. As the entire civilized democratic world came in united support of ‘New India’ in her astute resolve against global jihad as the main threat to global humanity with proven footprints of ‘Terroristan’ Pakistan that even its only ally i.e. the Communist China could no longer dare to (mis)use its Veto power in shielding global terrorist like Pak’s Masood Azhar or his JeM.
Thus, the ‘New India’ under PM Modi finally able to register an unprecedented, rare diplomatic feat i.e. building not just global consensus but global unanimity in both comprehensively defining as well as final solution in rooting out the scourge of global jihad. Designating JeM and Masood Azhar as global terrorist or terror outfit is the first clear sign of it which has, indeed, acted in terrorizing ‘Terroristan’ with a clear ‘reform or perish’ message i.e. stop funding jihad/jihadists or rot in hell !
