A wake up call

Individual or national dreams can only be built with planning and right course of actions. If someone is keen to build a house, he will first think about the budget, determine the location to buy a plot, its size, design, covered area, choice of the contractors etc. His list may have several questions, some of them even riddled with fears about the dirty business tricks, official bottlenecks and finally his string of decisions. Similarly in the politics of hostility, the enemy prepares its master plan, based on his objectives, followed by the course of actions to execute all the tasks. But secret war demands a different set of action, stitched with bits and pieces, without being conspicuous, to ensure complete secrecy not to be intercepted or catching the attention of the intelligence.
This list may include such jobs which ultimately converge on a one-point agenda like the disintegration of Pakistan by first fomenting insurgencies, generating economic turmoil, tightening the noose around the necks of peoples of certain communities, to trigger a chain action, as recipe of an invisible warfare. If we prepare the list of all such tasks, it might run into hundreds. An intrigue, India played in former East Pakistan. Now Balochistan, Swat and FATA are its targets. Has our counterintelligence failed to detect? But our masses need to be educated. The purpose of this exercise is to highlight just one or two such moves to create awareness about the times to come. How one stroke by the enemy like the water issue can open up a Pandora’s Box for many other troubles – leading to the collapse of the whole edifice of our polity?
The list of such dirty acts by India to inflict harm to our dear country is quite long. If we sit and meditate all the mischief which the enemy has planned and executed during the last three years, it might require many volumes, to assess losses of human life and property during the suicide bombings, and the burning and looting spree in various parts of the country. Still worse, it (the enemy) might have even shifted the blame on some other country to avoid international condemnation. To start with the simple proposition, let us first start with the political dynamic that engulfed the business nerve centre of Pakistan, Karachi, a couple of weeks ago, as target killings helps the enemy to create chaos, an unfavourable climate for investment and inflict heavy losses beyond anybody’s guess. At the same time, it has also generated mistrust and eliminated the people, who our foes regarded as obstacles in their jobs.
At the same time, the list of any country’s vulnerability is also long. But the tragedy is that New Delhi intends to spare no event to cause as much damage as it could. There is no comparison between the loss of human life and property that Pakistan has had to sustain as a result of Indian machinations and the Indian claims in the Mumbai mayhem. Nobody can deny the fact that blowing up trains, setting public property on fire, target killing of innocent civilians and playing havoc with the security personnel is not the handiwork of any Pakistani, but the enemy’s agents.
Nevertheless, for the last couple of years, our media has been playing a very constructive role to create awareness. But much still remains to be done to educate the masses about the personal obligations of every citizen, as part of their duty to the state. Since all our installations are built with our own tax money, the miscreants who succeed to bluff the people are part of the game to hoodwink the residents. But the question remains, who provide them resources and motivation to organise destructive activities. Since everybody, in this age has a mobile with built-in cameras, the masses should be educated to take the photographs and forward the same to the investigating teams, to help them track and probe the cases from such leads.
Sequel to the suicide attacks and frequency of sabotage incidents, the situation has turned every citizen quite apprehensive of his security and his investment. The guess game, pointing fingers at each other, wrong sense of direction, poor knowledge, whispering campaign, hostile propaganda, yellow journalism, poor government writ, shortage of items of daily use, price hike, myths created out of the new inventions and making a mountain out of the mole hill are some of the spores of most lethal weapon of disinformation that can affect, not only law and order, but may obstruct the smooth functioning of business activity and the government. Since the Indian capability to plan, coordinate and execute such intrigues is no secret to anyone, it is the duty of the intelligentsia to spare some of their time and divert their guns from the sectarian, parochial, ethnic, political and economic issues to the simple and more important topics to teach the new dimension of invisible war to the nation.
