India accused Pakistan for its direct involvement in the Mumbai terror attacks, occurred a few months back. The government of India has declared its stand in the battle against terrorism and provided all the evidences needed for proving Pakistan’s sinister interests. Not only in the Mumbai attacks, but also in the Pakistan sponsored infiltration in Jammu and Kashmir, India has proven without any doubt the direct involvement of Pakistan.
Taking for granted the stand of the government of India, we can see that Pakistan’s political agenda, ever since its formation was the anti-India policy, which is nurtured by our not-so-friendly-neighbourhood, the country of China. We must not forget that they have shown their intentions quite clearly to India before.
Pakistan’s politics had tried to give the anti-Indian policy, with which they exerted influence and gained support from the Islamic population of the country, an ideological persona. Now it’s the turn to, modify that ideological apparatus into a system, with its own order, law, economy and power.
‘System’ is a highly scientific word. Whenever an ideology or a theory takes the form of a system, it will assume an identity. That identity is not that of the ideology, not that of the theory, not that of the social milieu, and not that of the people involved in it but that of its own. This identity might have relations with each of those components in the system, but the interaction of the system with the components will be one sided, that is, from the system to the component and not vice versa. The exertion of power includes itself as a major impetus in those interactions. Thus a system assumes the form of an autonomous entity, with an identity of its own, or we can put it as a self-reliant organism with multifarious one-sided interactive components.
This is what happening in Pakistan. For giving the ideological apparatus, the form and influence of a system, the Pakistani government has signed a pact with the Taliban, allowing them to establish their system of law and order in the Afghan boarder of Pakistan.
The recent attack on the Sri-Lankan cricket team in Pakistan is showing that the “system” has started “functioning”. As it is said, it will become out of control from the government’s hands and will start working of its own. It will cause serious threats to the peace loving parts of the world.
China would also suffer from Pakistan- even though they have supported them- from the legion of terror blooming in the Pak soil, just like how America has suffered from Taliban, on 9/11. As a matter of fact, USA had supported Taliban in order to vanquish the Russian power in the cold war, which is not a secret any more.
It is not the role that USA will play, raises the Indian concerns, but the role that China is going to add to the Pakistan-Taliban drama. We must not forget that during the Mumbai attacks, the explosives and guns seized from the terrorists were made in China. From this, one thing is very clear, that is, “even though the bullets were fired by Pakistan, it were made by China”!

My teachers, after reading my blog, asked me, or accused me, I am not sure, that why am I so diplomatic?
I beg your pardon if any of my teachers felt hurt after reading my blog. I never have any diplomacy or if I put it in this way-hypocrisy- toward you. I know that there is no need to be diplomatic with you, because you are so near to me, that it won’t take too long for you to understand me. I respect you. I care for you.
But still you are right. I am diplomatic. This diplomatic stand that I took is toward my perspective about the world.
I feel immense freedom in writing until the first rewriting of the script. After that I am not free. No one is free. The dangers are not far from us. They are near, very near. Especially, if you are one who is concerned about the socio- cultural environment, in which that one is living. Then definitely you are in trouble, for the danger is just a breath time away, looking for even a very singly step taken against it, to crush. Wondering in what nightmare you are? You are in Kerala,in India, God’s own country!
Now let me explain the cause for my diplomatic stand. The root cause is somewhat like a psychological exercise to mould my self, fit for enduring life, in this place. Just that and nothing else! For I can't stand with those who believe in despotism and blood shed. I can’t be with hatred. I can’t be with cruelty. I can’t be with the barbarians.
I want to be with truth, with love, with humanity. In a place where the former group has the rule and the later has the sufferance, I can’t be with both. This leads myself to be in the roads of diplomacy.
Because, in me, I have the courage to fight, power to support the poor and suffering and love to make myself available to all. I just want the right opportunity to begin. Otherwise, the barbarism is so strong that it can crush me like a fruit bee. Don’t you think, I am right?
If and only if I have the ground to stand, I can hold the ensign of truth, humanity and love. I am searching for that ground. I have ardent faith in God, not as an omnipotent but as a holding ground of truth and love.
Here I think it would be better to conclude that diplomacy itself is my stand for the time being and literature my weapon. I am sure that I can find my God, at the right time, and at the right place. For as I said, that ground, which I want to use to end my diplomacy about the existing social vices, is –God, my God. Thus will this piece of writing be a prophecy.
