Mr. Gaurav Arya,
I read your letter right after coming back from work but irrespective of the fact that it was intended to be provocative it didn’t cause any exasperation. I rather laughed at it and felt the urge to reply to you.
The enemies that you said are sitting beside us are all heavily supported by Indian agencies (in all ways possible) and the dossier of evidences was given to UN months back.
Pakistan fought 3 wars with India over Kashmir dispute (1948, 1965, & Kargil) and we celebrate 1965 war. We also remember 1948 and Kargil war with pride because it propelled India to sought UN intervention as India couldn’t fight it.
In 1948 and Kargil, if Indian army officer of your caliber remember history properly, then Indian Prime Ministers sought resolution of war at UN security council because it was impossible for India to win those two wars.
1971 war was state terrorism by India but trust me you lost that war morally. Because Indian dreams to make Bangladesh part of their territory shattered.
Bangladesh used Indian army as toilet tissue paper to get what they want and then they disposed it off. And besides, state terrorism doesn’t make victors.
If Indian army isn’t ornamental then why high-ups from India called for UN intervention? But still I don’t think Indian army is “ornamental” because it has deployed more than 800,000 army men on just 221 km Indian Occupied Kashmir border with Pakistan. It doesn’t make Indian army ornamental, it rather makes it coward!
You bravely asked Honorable General Raheel Sharif in your letter to fight the good fight… man to man…face to face and at the same time you admitted that India is supporting separatists in Balochistan and Karachi?
Where did your man to man, face to face fight logic go when you were writing this letter? The fact remains that India is repeatedly admitting and supporting separatist movements in Pakistan because it can’t win wars against Pakistan.
Your admittance also proves that India is supporting terrorists (you called them snakes) in Pakistan to spread anarchy.
Sir, you talked about Maj. Rana Shabbir Sharif’s (Nishan-e-Haider) shahadat twice in your letter solely to provoke hatred but believe me without knowing you, I now know why you never reached the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in your career.
You must stop hiding your insecurities and accept the truth.
We are ready.
