श्रीलंका और मालदीव के बाद अब क्या पाकिस्तान को भी बचायेगा भारत?

Sri Lanka and Maldives, both our neighbors are going through severe economic crisis. In such a situation, India has filled these two countries with grains, medicines and dollars. Both these countries were to enter an era of anarchy without India’s help.

Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Maldivian President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih have expressed their gratitude to India in words rarely spoken by leaders of any neighboring country. How good that the top leaders of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nepal also use the same words for India. When I said this in a speech, some listeners asked me if Pakistan could ever use such respectful words for India.

Sri Lanka and Maldives, both our neighbors are going through severe economic crisis. In such a situation, India has filled these two countries with grains, medicines and dollars. Both these countries were to enter an era of anarchy without India’s help. In his maiden address to Parliament, the Sri Lankan President named India and said that India has given life to Sri Lanka. India has given Sri Lanka $4 billion and many other facilities, while China has not helped India even half and is eager to make Sri Lanka its strategic base.

Similarly, in the past few years, China has made several Maldivian leaders its sidekicks, but six agreements were signed between the two countries during Maldivian President Solihu’s visit to India this week. Solih expressed his gratitude to India for the medicines sent by India during the Corona period. He called for open cooperation with India against terrorism and crimes of all countries in the Indian Ocean region. He said everything without speaking. Hundreds of crores of rupees with the help of India. Several construction works are also planned. India has also provided several strategic resources to Maldives.

Now the question is whether India can do the same beneficial thing for Pakistan? If you ask this question to someone, they will ask if your mind is okay, right? If Pakistan’s bus runs, it will destroy India itself. This seems broadly true, but what does Pakistan’s active cooperation in the recent killing of Al-Qaeda leader Zawahiri and its policy on Osama bin Laden prove? The name of that compulsion is Mahatma Gandhi! When Asif Zardari was the President, I called and asked if we would accept some help in your dire economic crisis. Won’t that jeopardize your seat? Both joy and surprise were expressed on their part but our Prime Minister Manmohan Singh did not dare. If Narendra Modi looks at Shahbaz Sharif with the same gesture at this time, maybe a miracle will happen. The door may open for an unprecedented improvement in Indo-Pak relations.
