Pakistan is going through the most critical and challenging phase of its history these days. India is playing its cards very sharply and has been successful in aligning USA, Iran and Afghanistan with them against Pakistan. Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi recently has raised his voice for the people of Baluchistan which is a very alarming thing. On the other side India has started torturing and killing Kashmiri freedom fighters once again. They have convinced USA successfully that terrorists have their roots in Pakistan.
Our Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is not keeping good health and also he is very much worried due to the strong opposition and demand for his stepping down by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) after his family’s involvement in the Panama Leaks scandal. Mr. Sharif has not appointed any Foreign Minister since his government was formed. He looks after foreign issues himself. However it is realised by all political figures and analysts that Pakistan is suffering a lot because of not having a full time Foreign Minister.
Mr. Nawaz Sharif is a silent person by his personality and speaks very less, which is useless in current scenario. He hardly issues any statement against India. Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan gave a good lesson to India during the SAARC conference in Islamabad but he can’t do more because his role is not to look after the foreign affairs. In my opinion at this stage Pakistan has to respond Indian actions with strong strategic and diplomatic actions. We therefore need someone like Zulfiquar Ali Bhutto who was a an efficient and vocal Foreign Minister. Otherwise Pakistan will lose all its allies one by one and India will get a very strong position in the region, which will be a big danger for our motherland.
