Present government is failing in every arena of governance but it is performing exceptionally miserable in dealing with foreign affairs. Rather it will be more appropriate to say that our politicians as a whole have failed to come up with a coherent policy in line with our national interests. Never ever, one will hear anything from so called leaders of our political parties about how India and Afghanistan are garnering efforts to malign Pakistan already tarnished image and as a result internationally isolate it in the region and globally.
Three attacks of the Afghan militants on Pakistan check posts and border villages in last one month and still it is not the Pakistani Government which is furious, it is the Afghan president condemning, huffing and puffing on Pakistan. What is this all happening? No politician, no government official, even no media hawks reacted to these violent clashes killing tens of our security personnel as well as Pakistani villagers.
Have we all lost balance and proportion of our senses? Why no media headlines, no talks shows could found it meaty enough to attract audience and participants. Is this become a routine affair now and has no more a breaking news status?
And the last thing we lived to see was that Afghan people were protesting about the role of Pakistan in destabilizing their country. Imagine Afghans condemning a country providing refuge to over 5 million Afghans for the last 3 decades?
Recent activities, especially those from the start of this year, clearly answer these three questions: Is Afghan government or politicians are more capable than ours? Answer: Yes. Is Afghans media more patriotic to their country than our media is to Pakistan? Answer: Yes. If Afghan people more alive and alert and are well led than Pakistani lambs? Answer: Yes.
Will we ever wake up? Answer: No. So keep on sleeping my nation, our limits have not reached yet!!
