Karachi carnage has links to China-Pakistan Economic Corridor

According to Mr. Colin Clarke, associate political scientist working with the RAND Corporation, a highly recognized American think tank, it is necessary for policymakers in the US as well as elsewhere in the world to consider the factors and basis, but not the effects, that push people over the edge and cause them to commit violent acts or provide devoted support to perpetrators of violence in any form including terrorism. Numerous factors in fact encompassing poverty, ideology, ignorance and vengeance etc are regarded as major factors for such violence. These factors may be rightly identified as central causes but most significantly the element of mindsets followed by policymaking and importantly external exploitation, provocation, incitement and desire to demolish progress of competitors by frustrated adversaries while flipping these factors to own advantages, are ignored as deep-seated catalysts of violence in the society.
Contemporarily IS, Al-Qaeda, Daesh, Boko Haram and Taliban as well as dozens of their proliferated siblings are key perpetrators of violence and extremism. These entities are purposely created and placed in areas of interest collectively by global powers and their regional protégés like India to create violence against opponents.
In effect these are zilch but active apparatuses of devious adversaries that feel paranoid over the anticipated progress and imminent materialisation of peace and stability in Pakistan and Afghanistan as well as in the region as a result of momentous initiatives of Pakistan and China to kick off billions of dollars worth China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). There have been onset of open and slanted efforts to abuse factors of violence into own advantage predominantly flipping these causes by global players and their regional stooges like India to dither and ultimately stall CPEC enterprises. Such crafty and inhuman efforts of violence against a progressive and peace loving community like Ismailis was

aimed primarily to limit and sabotage Pakistan’s economy and contain China from spearheading into a anew era of multi-polarity which is a looming challenge to the pet alternative of the US. On Wednesday’s Karachi carnage at Safura Ghote against a well reputed and debonair business community of Ismailis rightly famed as torchbearers of peace, progress and enlightenment, is a revealing incident of belligerence from such adversaries of Pakistan and China and above all enemies of global peace and stability. The massacre of 45 innocent people, who have a gleaming history of intellectual, material and truly ideological support throughout the process of creation of Pakistan, is reflective of assault on the very foundation of Pakistan. This attack on the very community of founder of Pakistan Muhammad Ali Jinnah and his illustrious sister Fatima Jinnah, at a time when Prime Minister representing Muslim League of Sir Sultan Muhammad Shah Aga Khan 4th, is in effect an attack on Pakistan’s very existence by forces of darkness. Such a massacre exclusively in the economic nucleus of Pakistan Karachi, at a time when representatives of people of Pakistan were gathered to attend a crucial All Parties Conference to arrive at a collective consensus on CPEC, is indisputably a handiwork of RAW that has revived and directed violence against Pakistan under radical Indian PM Modi in great desperation. Such mayhem against the most civilised community of Pakistan is not only to deter CPEC initiative but also to malign Pakistan internationally as part of not so hidden American led global agenda of de-nuclearisation of the country. Heinous crime of shedding innocent blood is also perpetrated collectively by evil forces to obstruct Pakistan military’s successful counter terror operations that are guarantee for attaining peace and economic stability to the region.
Gilgit-Baltistan is strategically the most crucial region that provides China only land link through mighty Karakoram to Pakistan and vice versa. This proposed CPEC route will mainly traverses through Ismailis dominated population inhabited in former kingdom of Hunza that is known for ultra-friendly relations with neighbouring old and new China. In the recent past history, people of this lost kingdom under its dynamic ruler Mir Muhammad Jamal Khan voluntarily declared kingdom’s accession to Pakistan through a telegram to Quaid-e-Azam on 3rd November 1947 not only exasperating India but after humiliatingly evicting Indian Dogra forces collectively by the people of Gilgit-Baltistan.
In the history of all past wars with India the Ismailis of Hunza, Yasin and Shias of Nagar and Gilgit-Baltistan along with their fellows of Diamer and other regions have proved their worth against Indians. Lalak Jan Shaheed, Nishan-e-Haider is the valiant son of Ismailis from Yasin. Ismaili Muslims, though in minority in Pakistan, under the spiritual guidance of Sir Sultan Muhammad Shah and contemporary Imam Price Karim Aga Khan have gigantic contribution towards economic, social and intellectual progress of our beloved country Pakistan. Since India has historically remained scared of the valiant people of Gilgit-Baltistan where Ismailis have a significant presence especially along the CPEC route, therefore RAW with the help of its terrorists in Karachi have targeted the soft belly by killing innocent Ismailis to antagonise their fellows in China’s neighbourhood.
Similar attempts of destabilizing Gilgit-Baltistan region through oblique means to contain china have been made in the past and likely to continue in future too. Indians and their global masters must have to take into account the unflinching aspirations of Gilgit-Baltistan’s progressive and forward-looking people to support CPEC which is a game changer for the whole region. Global powers and Indian treacherous endeavors to sabotage CPEC will certainly continue hence we Pakistanis must remain united to rise together otherwise we will fall. While recognising the greater contribution and sacrifices of Ismailis and rest of the loyal population of Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan and China must remain firm to take impending challenges from forces of evil and make CPEC a success.
