Will IMRAN KHAN face a ROCKY ROAD with IRAN? – KJ Vids

Will IMRAN KHAN face a ROCKY ROAD with IRAN?

Pakistan’s political and strategic significance for Iran began with Pakistan’s emergence as an independent state following the Partition of India in 1947. The Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, was the first head of state to pay a State visit to Pakistan in March 1950 and in the same month, a Treaty of Friendship was signed.

But conflicting national security interests and the influence of wider competing powers have always played an important factor in shaping the Iran-Pakistan relationship, especially after the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979. I’m Kasim, this is KJ Vids and in this video, we will look into the relationship between Iran and Pakistan.

Why the GWADAR PORT in Pakistan is changing the world’s geo-political landscape

Why a fishing town in Pakistan is changing the world’s geo-political landscape!

A small fishing town in the South-West of Pakistan, Gwadar is the gateway city of China’s $62 Billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor.

A deep sea port strategically located in the Indian Ocean at the opening of the Strait of Hormuz.

Pakistan leased Gwadar Port to China in 2015 as part of a $62 Billion deal.

China also acquired 22,000 acres of land adjoining the port in Gwadar which has been declared a Special Economic Zone.

A 1224 Kilometre highway is being built from China ending in Gwadar emulating the ancient Silk Road

Gwadar will link the Silk Road on land with the Maritime Silk Road

The new Silk Road reduces shipping times for Chinese goods to the Middle-East, Africa and Europe by up to 80%.

Gwadar is being developed under the model of China’s Shenzhen through the establishment of Special Economic Zones.

Shenzhen was amongst the fastest growing cities in the world growing from a population of 30,000 in 1979 to 10 Million in 2017 with a GDP of $294 Billion!

Zhang Baozhong, the Chairman of China Overseas Port Holding Company said “China plan to spend $4.5 billion on developing Gwadar.”

In November 2016 the first cargo travelled the Silk Road from Kashgar in China to Gwadar and shipped out from Gwadar to the Middle-East and Africa.

Currently there are some 2000 Chinese personnel in Gwadar this number is projected to grow up to 500,000 by 2023.

There is a geo-political shift happening in the world and Gwadar is at the heart of this.

Why Pakistan allow U.S Drone Strikes

It is estimated that there have been 423 drone strikes in Pakistan since 2004.

Mixed sources say that there have been anywhere from 100 Civilian deaths to 3000 including up to 207 children.

Total      403        2,498     286        274        3,058

Pakistan’s government publicly condemns these attacks. However, it also allegedly allowed the drones to operate from Shamsi Airfield in Pakistan until 21 April 2011.

According to secret diplomatic cables leaked by Wikileaks, Pakistan’s Army Chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani not only tacitly agreed to the drone flights, but in 2008 requested that Americans increase them.

the propeller-driven drones most commonly used to kill terrorists in Pakistan, would be child’s play for a Pakistani Air Force pilot to take down

They’re easy to detect on radar, and they fly around 100 mph (MQ-1 Predator or an MQ-9 Reaper)

The RQ-170 Sentinel, for example, is much more difficult to detect on radar, and its jet engines enable it to fly at just below the speed of sound.

In the months before Osama Bin Laden’s killing, Sentinel drones flew between the seams of Pakistan’s radar systems to spy on his Abbottabad compound.

Military experts still argue over whether the Sentinel that went down in Iran in 2011 was shot or simply malfunctioned.

 

Pakistan refuses to shoot down US Drones not because it doesn’t have the capability, but due to it’s political subservience to America.

Why does India want to arrest Zakir Naik?

Read original article by Saif Khalid on Al Jazeera or read some of they key points below;

  1. “He has 16 million followers on Facebook, 150,000 on Twitter and has given more than 4,000 lectures on Islam across the world. But Zakir Abdul Karim Naik, the popular televangelist and Islamic preacher, is now wanted by the Indian authorities.”
  2. “Problems arose for the preacher last summer, after Bangladeshi authorities said that one of the gunmen responsible for an attack on a cafe in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, which left 22 people dead, had been inspired by him. Bangladesh responded by banning Peace TV, an Islamic channel broadcast from Dubai which Naik founded in 2006 and which claims to reach 100 million people worldwide.”
  3. “The 51-year-old denied supporting violence, releasing a video statement in which he said: “Killing innocent beings is the second major sin in Islam.”
  4. “The Hindu nationalist government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi responded by imposing a five-year ban on the Mumbai-based non-profit Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) under the country’s anti-terror laws.”
  5. Naik has not returned to India since last July. His whereabouts are currently not known, there have been rumours that he has been granted Saudi citizenship, but there has been no official confirmation of this.
  6. “Naik’s view is shared by many within India’s Muslim community, members of which have come under attack from far-right Hindu groups associated with Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).”

 

Why does INDIA NEED AFGHANISTAN? – KJ VIDS

What are India’s Interests in Afghanistan and why does India need Afghanistan so much?

India has sought to establish its presence in Afghanistan from the early days of its independence from Britain in 1947. In 1950, Afghanistan and India signed a “Friendship Treaty.” India had robust ties with Afghan King Zahir Shah’s regime. Prior to the Soviet invasion in 1979, New Delhi continued to formalized agreements and protocols with various pro-Soviet regimes in Kabul. But what are India’s strategic political and economic interests there? In this video, we will look at India’s interests in Afghanistan.

Who Won the Indian-Pakistan War of 1965?

Who Won The 1965 Indo-Pak War

In 1965. Pakistan launched a secret mission to send 30,000 armed men into Indian-administered Kashmir to incite an insurgency and liberate Kashmir from India known as Operation Gibraltar.

By the time Indian forces realized this had happened, the fighters had reached the outskirts of Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir.
As the Indian military offensive seemed to gain success, the Indian Army captured the Haji Pir pass inside Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

To counter this, the Pakistani Army launched an attack in Akhnoor in Jammu. Suffering losses here, India called its air force.
The escalation of the war here made India open a front in Wagah in Punjab – to the surprise of the Pakistanis. The Pakistanis repelled this attack well.

Eventually, the international community forced a ceasefire and the two countries signed an agreement in Tashkent, whereby both returned to pre-1965 territorial positions.

Since the Indian attack across Wagah threatened Lahore and Sialkot, Pakistanis say the Indians lost the war and Pakistan won.
Since Pakistan’s plan to liberate Kashmir failed, and the year ended with Pakistan getting not a single inch of new territory, the Indians say they won.

Independent historians, however, are clear that it was a military stalemate and neither side won.

It is perhaps apt that both India and Pakistan say they won this war, showing up each other’s nationalism for what it is.

India’s own official history of the war, published only two years ago, is scathing in its review of how poorly the Indian army and air force performed.

Pakistan on the other hand does not even pretend that it provoked the war by trying to liberate Kashmir.

It is one thing to commemorate the soldiers who lost their lives, another to celebrate a war ‘victory.’ Truth is, both countries lost a lot in that war.

Firstly, the war made Kashmir an intractable issue forever. The Pakistanis tried to liberate Jammu & Kashmir in 1948 in a similar way.

That got them a chunk of the territory but not the prized Kashmir Valley itself. India took the issue to the United Nations.

The 1965 war should also be read as a failure of the UN, and of diplomatic negotiations between India and Pakistan. If war is a continuation of politics, diplomacy is war by other means.

The most important consequence of the 1965 war was that, for the first time, the India-Pakistan border became a Berlin Wall of sorts.

Until 1965, visas were easy, Indian and Pakistani films were screened in theatres across the border, trade ties were normal, books and journals went across easily.

India–Pakistan relations as we know them today, were formed more by 1965 than by the 1948 war, or arguably, by Partition itself.

In 1947, there were people who left their homes to go and live in the other country, thinking they could always return. 1965 ended that dream.

It is said that 1965 was the first real war between the two countries. Six year later, India helped East Pakistan secede from Pakistan and become Bangladesh.

The Indian threat to Lahore made Pakistanis feel an existential threat from India, and convinced Indians that Pakistan was going to take Kashmir one way or another.

It was 1965 that set in stone a feeling of permanent hostility.

Who killed Zia Ul Haq?

Zia ul-Haq was born into a middle-class family in 1924 in India. After completing his education at home, he enrolled at St. Stephen’s College in India.

Choosing a career in the British army, he joined the Royal Indian Military Academy and then served with British troops in Burma, Malaysia and Indonesia during the latter part of World War II.

After the partition of India into India and Pakistan in 1947, Zia joined the Pakistani army.

He attended two military schools in the United States which included Fort Knox in 1959 and the U.S. CGSS at Fort Leavenworth in 1963.

Zia was on active duty in Kashmir during the 1965 war between India and Pakistan, and after it he was promoted to colonel.

In 1969 he was made a brigadier, and for two years he was adviser to the Royal Jordanian Army in their conflict with Palestinian guerrillas.

Under the government of Prime Minister Z.A. Bhutto, Zia advanced rapidly within the army ranks.

In 1975 he was promoted to lieutenant-general and in 1976 was appointed as army chief of staff, chosen over several more senior officers.

But Bhutto underestimated Zia. Accusations by opposition leaders that the prime minister’s party had manipulated the results of the March 1977 parliamentary elections led to widespread public demonstrations and violence.

The military, headed by Zia, stepped in on July 5, 1977, to impose martial law and deposed Bhutto in a bloodless coup.

Zia suspended the 1973 constitution, dissolved the National Assembly, banned political activity and declared himself president in 1978. He purged politicians associated with Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party.

Bhutto was implicated in a case concerning the assassination of a political opponent’s father, and in April 1979, despite international protests, Zia had him executed.

Bhutto’s execution made Zia unpopular, the economy was in trouble, and in November 1979 Islamists burned the American embassy in Islamabad.

Zia’s days seemed numbered, but on Christmas Eve 1979 the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, and the United States reversed its long opposition to Pakistan and began aiding Zia’s regime to help it fend off Soviet agression.

Zia’s Islamization program tempered criticism of his military regime.

Soviet intervention in Afghanistan resulted in a revival of U.S. strategic interests in the region and in an economic and military aid package of $3.2 billion to Pakistan.

During the conflict, Zia helped smuggle U.S. supplies to the Soviet-backed Afghan rebels and allowed them to operate training bases in Pakistan

In December 1984 Zia abruptly called for a referendum to determine support for his Islamization policies. The referendum passed overwhelmingly, and Zia considered it a mandate to remain as president for another five years.

In 1986 Benazir Bhutto, daughter of the executed president, returned to Pakistan after two years of self-imposed exile and started to organize the opposition.

Prime Minister Mohammed Khan Junejo led efforts to exert more civilian control over the military.

IIn May 1988, Zia fired Junejo and his 33-member cabinet and dissolved the National Assembly.

Bhhutto declared that her Pakistan People’s Party was “ready to go to the people.”

On August 17, 1988, Zia was on a secret mission to a desert area in eastern Pakistan, meeting U.S. Ambassador Arnold Raphel for a demonstration of the M-1 Abrams tank.

With an American military attache and 27 Pakistani advisors, Zia and Raphel boarded a C-130 plane to return to the capital.

Within minutes after takeoff, it exploded, killing everyone aboard. The crash was suspicious.

But Pakistani and American investigators failed to confirm the plane had been bombed.

Experts speculated about which of Zia’s many enemies might have assassinated him.

The Soviet Union, the government of India, Bhutto’s People Party and Zia’s own military all came under suspicion, but no culprit was ever found.
