Report of Think Tank: Pakistan military supports terror groups against India :- As per the report by a group of South expert from American Think tanks that the military of Pakistan continues to support terror groups that attack India to keep attack on and draws the attention of international media and people into dispute over Kashmir.
According to a report titled ‘A New US Approach to Pakistan: Enforcing Aid Conditions without Cutting Ties’. The report will be released here on Friday. The report told that the military of Pakistan has often disrupted nascent peace efforts pursued by Indian and Pakistani civilian rulers, most notably in 1999 during the Kargil war.
The report said that Pakistan uses terrorist groups toattack on India for misbalance the country. Pakistan never changed its policy of supporting certain militant groups that fight Afghan and coalition forces, making it impossible for the US to achieve its objective of keeping Afghanistan from reverting to a safe haven for international terrorism.
The name of the experts who made the report are Col (retd) John Gill, Professor from National Defense University; Anish Goel, from New America; Bruce Riedel from Brookings Institution; David S Sedney, Center for Strategic and International Studies; and Marvin Weinbaum from, Middle East Institute.
America clearly recognises that the support of Pakistan for the Afghan Taliban, the Haqqani network and other terrorist groups is not the sole reason for the security challenges of Afghanistan.
The report said that the other problems become insurmountable when the main terror groups enjoy safe havens in Pakistan.
It said that the tolerance of Pakistan for terror groups also undermines the country itself, corroding its stability and civilian governance and damaging its investment climate, as well as inflicting death and injury on thousands of its own innocent citizens.
The report said that The policy of US must also pay attention to non-proliferation goals while dealing with Pakistan. The US continues to provide economic and military assistance to Pakistan without having secured its objective of convincing Islamabad to end its policy of using terrorist proxies to achieve regional strategic objectives.
The report said that the military of Pakistan has been accused of facilitating the attack against Pathankot air base, India in last January that derailed the goodwill created by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s surprise visit to Lahore to meet with PM Sharif six days earlier.
The report said that continued US assistance, offered in the hope of a gradual change in Pakistan’s terrorism policies, only provides the Pakistan an economic cushion and better quality military equipment to persist with those policies.
