India Opened Fire on UNMOGIP

Pakistan and India have been at daggers drawn since their independence. In recent times, however, relations between the two neighboring countries have been passing through one of the most difficult and dangerous phases. Since his ascent to power, Narendra Modi has taken a hardline confrontational approach towards Pakistan. From playing the Hindutva card and fanning the flames of religious persecution of Muslims, the 2019 border skirmishes to the alteration in Occupied Jammu & Kashmir’s special status, Modi’s intentions are apparent.

On 18th December 2020, Indian troops targeted a United Nations vehicle carrying two officers of the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) in Azad Jammu and Kashmir along the LoC. This recent flare in hostility is an attempt by the Indian government to divert the world community’s focus from its acts of brutality and the plight of the people of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. Moreover, it may also serve to draw away the attention of citizens from the economic problems that India currently faces.

Pakistan, on the other hand, has been vocal in expressing its point of view on Kashmir on global forums and draw people’s attention towards India’s ruthlessness. However, it has failed so far to garner any support or even a response for that matter. In the modern capital-driven world, morality and justice often take the backseat. Owing to its geographical proximity with China, India is the West’s figurative blue-eyed boy these days. Moreover, the economic clout and the business opportunities that India has to offer compels the self-proclaimed “champions of human rights and justice” to overlook its naked aggression in the occupied J&K.

Trump in particular and the West, in general, have been shamelessly ignoring Indian savagery. On top of that, the Muslim world’s silence on the same has emboldened Modi and gave him a free pass to pursue his brutal policies in Kashmir. The incoming US president Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have been critical of Indian policies in the past. It is being speculated that Indian aggression will lessen during Biden’s stint in office.

Furthermore, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister has warned the world that India is planning a surgical strike in Pakistan. In recent times, India has developed a habit of browbeating Pakistan. However, if there is an ounce of truth in the news of a potential surgical strike, the government in Delhi must refrain from any such adventurism against a nuclear-armed state.
