The hardliner Hindus unknowingly support Pakistan through their anti-Pakistan activities. This looks like a paradox. But evidence corroborates this claim. When Congress and Muslim League were struggling for Independence from British Raj, narrow-minded leaders in Congress prodded Muslim leaders to follow a separate path. Until the rejection of The Fourteen Points, Jinnah was willing to reconcile with Congress. But the blatant disregard of Muslim’s concerns by Nehru and other prominent Congress leaders convinced him that Hindus would not go along with the Muslims of India. Moreover, the tyrannical rule of Congress ministries pushed Muslims to demand a separate state for themselves. When Pakistan came into being, the fanatic Hindu leaders employed every trick in the book to weaken Pakistan. As a result, Pakistanis worked even harder to make their country strong. Pakistan gained Nuclear Technology only to deter war mongering Hindu elites. Thanks to hawkish Indian leaders Pakistan reached great milestones, including a robust army, a sophisticated missile technology and a highly trained air force. In brevity, zealot Hindu leaders benefit Pakistan unwittingly. Their enmity motivates the people of Pakistan to gain more strength and vigor.
