The scope for improving relations between India and Pakistan after the ceasefire was agreed on the border, seems to be ending now.In the regional and global situation that has emerged after the Taliban occupation of Afghanistan, the anti-India attitude of Pakistan has started showing signs of increasing.Now again, there will be a lot of effort on the part of Pakistan to not only give air to Kashmir in international forums but there may also be an increase in attempts to incite terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
The whole global environment changed
After the change in Afghanistan, the entire global environment has become such that the importance of Pakistan has increased.In the last fortnight, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has spoken to Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan.Britain's Foreign Minister Dominic Raab also suddenly arrived in Islamabad on Friday and held bilateral talks with Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
Pak can make strategy against India
Pakistan has already mediated between China and the Taliban.Although US President Joe Biden has not telephoned Imran yet, talks are going on between the US and Pakistan regarding Afghanistan.Islamabad can adopt a strategy to use the diplomatic victory in Afghanistan and the atmosphere of global importance against India.
The thinking of the Pakistani army is a big hindrance
Former High Commissioner of India to Pakistan Sharat Shabarwal says that there are already many problems creating tension between the two countries.Now Afghanistan has also been added to it.After the Taliban comes to power, Pakistan's effort will be that India does not get any place in Afghanistan.At present, India and Pakistan do not have relations like normal countries.Now improving relationships has become more difficult.Sabarwal also says that the mindset of Pakistan's army is the biggest obstacle in relation to relations with India.
increasing terrorist activities
Indications of Pakistan's changed stance can also be seen along the International Border and Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.Infiltration along the border had almost stopped since the ceasefire agreement between India and Pakistan in February.But after the Taliban occupation of Kabul, terrorist activities have increased across the border at the launching pad in Ghulam Kashmir.
Infiltration may increase again
Some in the Pakistani military believe that with the help of the Taliban, they can do the same thing in Kashmir that they have done to Russia and the US in Afghanistan.Sending terrorists to India can be the first step of this strategy.The high-level committee formed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to monitor the situation in Afghanistan, consisting of top officials including External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and NSA Ajit Doval, reflects these concerns of India.
