VIEW FROM INDIA

Note for WoP readers: This article by Bharat Varma, editor Indian Defense Review was published in Security Research Review and was re-edited by a fellow blogger HK of GeoploticalNWO. In order to apprise you of the mindset of such Indian hawks and how do they exacerbate the already tense relations between India and Pakistan, I am putting up this post to keep you abreast of all such developments in our neighborhood.

It is also intended to keep you aware of the thought process this Indian edition of neocons; who nowadays chimes like a parrot and uses the language and terminology of US neocons (who are inherently Islamo-phobic) against Pakistan. The US neoconservatives use terms like failed state, rogue nation, country of sleaze, artificial state etc. only when they wish a country to go strictly after their diktat. As reported by Shamus Cooke in his essay Mexico, Pakistan, and the So-Called “Failed State”, Washington’s War on “Narco-Terrorism” Pakistan too is a target of this propaganda hype.

Our Indie brothers’ with their current honeymoon with the US now, too in cohort are playing up the hype i.e. Pakistan is going to disintegrate and therefore this is the most opportune time to arm-twist her by getting into the footsteps of the American Raj but as Arundhati Roy, the true voice of India ” says, 9 is not 11 and  November isn’t September”. [Nayyar]

 

FAILED STATES

India is ringed by failed / failing states.

• Pakistan

• Nepal 

• Bangladesh 

• Myanmar

Failed / failing states export instability, terrorism, religious fundamentalism, arms and drugs.

CHINA

In addition, on our North, we face China, the guru that influences / or uses other countries as proxy mentioned earlier in every possible way to weigh India down.

Capabilities are more important than perceived intentions, as China has demonstrated not only to India but also to the world. It has intelligently diverted international focus away from itself to North Korea, Pakistan and countries like Iran. For example, in the six country nuclear talks with North Korea, it is Beijing that calls the shots. It can switch on or off the negotiations at its will.

PAKISTAN

Since its creation, Pakistan has perpetually been resorting to war and export of terrorism to appropriate more Indian territory. Pakistan faces a negative profile of indoctrinated and unemployed youth trained in Islamic Jehad Factory against us. The obsession to harm us ultimately allured Pakistan to become rent-a–state country. It lives on others money. Despite being broke, Islamabad continues to fuel anti-India activities through Nepal and Bangladesh with impunity. India remains the target and operating ground for Islamic fundamentalists and terrorist groups orchestrated by ISI.

New Delhi needs to evolve an alternative strategy to comprehensively defeat the adversary’s nefarious activities that poses military, nuclear and demographic inversion threats. This is a do-able proposition provided our elders can think beyond the overwhelming burden created by the inherited fault line.

New Delhi needs to move on three axes simultaneously

  • New Delhi-West Asia
  • New Delhi Southeast Asia and
  • New Delhi Central Asi
bharat1

Out of the three, the most critical is the New Delhi-Kabul-Tehran-Moscow axis, on two counts. First, for centuries this is the route of invasions and will remain so.

Second, as the second largest consumer of oil and gas in Asia, and as one of the engines that will power the world economy, energy security is the most critical factor in India’s national security calculus.

This resource rich territory will fall prey to Pak sponsored Talibanisation if India and other countries do not preempt it.’

It may be prudent for American capital to join hands with the Indians in a JV.

This will in turn check the destructive influence of Islamabad and balance the Chinese strategic thrust.

NEPAL / MAOISTS

Nepal continues to slip into the Chinese sphere of influence due to counter-productive policy by New Delhi.

In Nepal, the Maoists have a sizeable influence in 45 of the 75 districts, their most formidable presence being in mid-western Nepal. The Maoists have linked up with the Peoples War Group (PWG) in India. The latter in a bid to expand its influence has carved a corridor encompassing the states of Andhra Pradesh–Madhya Pradesh–Chhatisgarh–Orissa–West Bengal–Jharkhand–Bihar as shown in the map.

This corridor that has been formed with ease depicts the Indian Fault Line with stark clarity on ground.

· Combine the bleak picture above with Bangladesh and Myanmar borders and the Indian Fault Line engulfs most of the eastern half of the Union

. Insurgency in varying degrees impacts on the Northeast with the exception of Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh and has trans-border dimensions with Myanmar and Bangladesh.

The 21 to 65 km wide and 200 km long narrow Siliguri corridor between Nepal and Bangladesh is delicately poised when also considering China in the north. This corridor threatened by Kamtapuri insurgency and demographic inversion by Bangladesh can cut off the only land link to the Indian Northeast and in such an eventuality supplies will have to be maintained by air.

Consequently, Bhutan may also slip into the Chinese sphere of influence.

There is already a nexus between Maoists in Nepal and ULFA in Assam and is being enlarged to include PWG in India and Islamic terrorist groups in Bangladesh. With Dacca’s geographical interface with five Indian states i.e. West Bengal, Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura and Mizoram; Indian security stands threatened by: demographic assault, arms and drug smuggling, and safe havens for Indian insurgent groups.

Islamic groups in Bangladesh under ISI tutelage, Saudi finance, and China’s patronage, have become more vicious, thus adding another dimension to India’s security headache.

If a vertical line from Central Uttar Pradesh southwards to Eastern Andhra Pradesh were drawn, it would lead to an ineluctable observation that India ’s Eastern Half is in turmoil. The Western Half is not only relatively progressive and peaceful but also generates most of the wealth along with the South

Just imagine the result if the Eastern Half along with Kashmir can be put in order through development and bold counter-measures, to ensure the requisite peace and stability, conducive to generation of wealth.

The BATTLE OF THE PORTS… India Vs. China, US Vs. ???

The 218-km road connecting Delaram (on the Kandahar-Herat highway) to Zaranj, on the border with Iran has been completed.

It will provide landlocked Afghanistan an alternative access to the sea, the Iranian port of Chahbahar, allowing it to break free from Pakistan’s traditional stranglehold.

It remains to be seen if Iran will prove to be a better neighbour than Pakistan.

For Afghanistan, this is an opportunity to regain better access to the Indian market that it lost in 1947. For India, it is an opportunity to regain better access to Central Asia that it too lost in 1947.

US MILITARY SUPPLY ROUTE TO AFGHANISTAN

The Taliban have all but shut down the Pakistan supply route to Afghanistan. Russian routes are an option. The other option is to use the Iranian port of Chahbahar. The Indian government has spent over $1 billion to construct a multi-lane highway from the western Afghan city of Heart to the Iranian border to meet up with the road from Chahbahar. Some form of political deal with the regime in Tehran would enable the US and NATO to redirect most, if not all, the traffic that currently goes to Karachi—providing they retain control over Herat.

Gwadar
China also has a Plan
http://gawadarinnltd.com/page_1161468194468.html

in fact, Gwadar enjoys the status of a third Deep Sea Port of Pakistan which has a special significance with reference to trade links with Central Asian Countries, Persian Gulf, East Africa, United Arab Emirates and North Western India.

The Gwadar project came about as a result of a Sino-Pakistan agreement in March 2002, under which China Harbor Construction Corporation will build the port.

Beijing has provided $198 million for the first phase of the project and Islamabad’s contribution has been $ 50 million. The scope of phase-1 includes construction of three multi-purpose berths each 200 meters long and capable of handling vessels up to 30,000 DWT.

By virtue of its excellent location, Gwadar port is also visualized to become a regional hub serving incoming and outgoing commercial traffic of the Middle Eastern and Gulf countries, the Xinjiang province of China, Iran in the west and Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the south and east.

According to some sources, Beijing also intends to take advantage of Gwadar’s accessible international trade routes to Central Asian republics and Xinjiang. The plan envisages extending China’s east-west railway from the border city of Kashi to Peshawar.

The incoming and outgoing cargo from Gwadar can then be delivered to China through the shortest route from Karachi to Peshawar. The same road and rail network can also be used for the supply of oil from the Gulf to the western provinces of China.

Additionally, China could also gain rail and road access to Iran through Pakistan’s internal road and rail network. Use of Gwadar port by China should accelerate the growth and development of the port and the hinterland and enhance its overall commercial and strategic value.

India is helping develop the Chabahar port and that would give it access to the oil and gas resources in Iran and the Central Asian states, in this it is competing with the Chinese which is building the Gwadar port, in Pakistani Baluchistan.

Iran plans to use Chabahar for transhipment to Afghanistan and Central Asia while reserving the port of Bandar Abbas as a major hub mainly for trade with Russia and Europe.

The Ancient China-Pakistan Route

India, Iran and Afghanistan have signed an agreement to give Indian goods, heading for Central Asia and Afghanistan, preferential treatment and tariff reductions at Chabahar.

Work on the Chabahar-Melak-Zaranj-Dilaram route from Iran to Afghanistan is in progress. Iran with Indian aid is upgrading the Chabahar-Melak road and constructing a bridge on the route to Zaranj. India’s BRO is laying the 213-kilometer Zaranj-Dilaram road. It is a part of its USD 750 million aid package to Afghanistan.

The advantages that Chabahar has, compared to Gwadar are the greater political stability and security of the Iranian hinterland and the hostility and mistrust that the Pakistani Balochis hold against the Punjabi dominated Pakistani Federal government. The Balochis consider Sino-Pak initiative at Gwadar as a strategy from Islamabad to deny the province its deserved share of development pie. They also look with suspicion on the settlement of more and more non-Balochis in the port area.

The Chabahar port project is Iran’s chance to end its US sponsored economic isolation and benefit from the resurgent Indian economy. Along with Bandar Abbas, Chabahar is the Iranian entrepot on the North – South corridor. A strategic partnership between India, Iran and Russia to establish a multi-modal transport link connecting Mumbai with St. Petersburg. Providing Europe and the former Soviet republics of Central Asia access to Asia and vice-versa.

  3. Sir/Madam:

    Excellent article. Of course most of was written by us at Rupee News. We would appreciate it if you gave us credit, specially for the maps that we created.

    Perhaps you can add us a link to your site

    Re: Our post https://wondersofpakistan.wordpress.com/2009/06/04/the-breaking-up-of-india-is-approaching-fast-view-from-india/#comments

    Thanks for appreciating our efforts. Your site is already linked to “Wonders of Pakistan” site. This I did ever since I received your last email on 29. March 2009. The images you have mentioned were already a part of the article by HK, as we neither check nor challenge the contents of essays sent by our writers or selected by us for publication in the “Wonders of Pakistan” blog site; minor editing where necessary though is done by us.

    All contents in text and images are supposed to be the copyright of the authors / publishers, or of the sources from where the material has been taken, and we do neither go after the original source / s nor we ethically consider it as appropriate.

    If you could just mention the maps which originated from your blog site (http://rupeenews.wordpress.com/), I will be most pleased to acknowledge that.

    As regards your mentioning of saying something which has been expressed similar to what has been said in the subject post, please provide me the url’s of respective posts, may be it is a big help to me to correlate the findings. Actually some of these maps appeared in an article which was published in an Indian defence journal as well and the writer too is an Indian, therefore, I did not know exactly from where did come these maps (originally).

    The articles at “Wonders of Pakistan” blog site are mainly inserted for our readers with an intention to apprise them of geopolitical happening on the world’s political chess board.

    By the way Maoin, am not Madam. I know one does it normally specially in case of foreign names but for Pakistani names it should be no problem to identify the gender of the addressee (though my name is simultaneously been used by feminine as well).

    I like the contents of your site although don’t have much time to read all specially the ones’ which I find of paramount interest.

  5. fools world.

    • Whose? India’s, China’s or others? The article itself has been written by an Indian analyst…

  6. this was written by a typical india calling its neighbours failed states, funny thing is all your neighbours don’t like india and not because of jealously, just a thought

  7. hi how are you i am saber sedeqie

  8. the article seems to have been written by analyzing one-sided view of events and deeds of a country.in fact,a country that has been under threat of invasion from a state four time bigger could naturally have reacted in similar modus vivendi.perhaps the analyst should have put fourth the opposite aspect and an even and just inquiry of historical events and reactions of the both states.i plead the writer to either amend or justify his amalgamation of facts and wrong interpretation of events. best regards, visitor aslam jillani

  9. We have immense potential as a nation, but this present setup is corrupt and serving only the rich and powerful. We need a big change now:

  11. I scarcely publish opinions, nonetheless I looked at a huge amount of
    information here on The Breaking Up of INDIA is
    approaching fast | Wonders of Pakistan and had a couple
    of important questions for you if you do not mind. Could
    it be just me or do a number of of the replies appear as if
    they’re generated from brain dead persons? And, if you are composing on other supplemental webpages, Let me stay in touch with you. Would you post a list of all your social media sites including linkedin information, Facebook page or twitter feed?
