Benazir Assasination-“what you sow, shall you reap”

The assassination of Benazir Bhutto however sad and tragic reminds of saying “what you sow, shall you reap”. I vividly remember in the early 1990’s during the start of the Kashmir insurgency when we had no 24/7 channels, watching Benazir Bhutto in the newstrack video, hysterically screaming from P.O.K. for liberation of Kashmir from India and calling for Jihad.

This was just 12 months before in Islamabad She promised Rajiv Gandhi after just taking over as the Prime Minister that She would closely work in promoting peace. It was the foundation for the Jihad factory laid by her in the early 90’s that gave the impetus to the radical islamisation of Kashmir movement and genocide of Hindu Pandits. Much earlier in Nov 89, She had on the eve of India’s Parliamentary elections condemned the Shilanyas ceremony at Ayodhya although she had no locus standi to comment on India’s internal affairs especially concerning Hindu sentiments. Inspite of her Oxford background, like her Father, she to believed like most Pakistanis in the 1000 cuts policy of bleeding India slowly.

Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, Hurriyat separatist leader vindicated this when He stated in CNN IBN today that She was greatly and closely revered in Kashmir and her death was a big blow to the peace process as Pakistan would not be able to play any role given their current state.

As usual our 24/7 channels have gone into national mourning as though the tragedy has occurred in our country. Unlike what the media and politicians would like us to believe, destabilisation and break up of Pakistan probably into different states like the erstwhile Soviet Union is the best that could happen if and when it actually takes place. Once the tap of Jihad is cut from Pakistan, we would hopefully be able finish militancy once and for all like Punjab and the Muslims in the valley will then realise that their future lies within the framework of the Indian Union.
