Great nation of Pakistan is not surprised to see the Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi making public a narrative that showed Saudi and UAE blackmailing working well. It made nation believe that the PTI government is toeing Saudi-UAE line against Iran.
Saudi servant from Pakistan
A retired servant of the Pakistani state’s most powerful institution has become an obedient servant of Saudi regime and serving Saudi interests as part of his job in Riyadh.
Saddened Pakistanis saw with shock him recently serving as protocol officer of Saudi Crown Prince MBS during his Pakistan visit. This is one side of the multifaceted story as how Saudi and UAE buy Pakistan government.
UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr Anwar Mohammed Gargash warned Pakistan of having to pay a heavy price for stand on Yemen. Pakistan should take a clear position in favour of its strategic relations with Arab Gulf cooperation Council.
UAE Minister threatens Pakistan
However, one can understand the other side of this factual story from the threats which GCC countries had been hurling at Pakistan due to its refusal to join Saudi-UAE war on Yemen.
On April 11 and 12, 2015, Pakistani newspapers reproduced news of UAE minister threat to Pakistan. Under the headline UAE minister warns Pakistan of ‘heavy price for ambiguous stand’ on Yemen, the report stated: UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr Anwar Mohammed Gargash warned Pakistan of having to pay a heavy price for taking on what he called an ambiguous stand. He added that Pakistan should take a clear position in favour of its strategic relations with Arab Gulf cooperation Council.
Gragash threat shows Pakistan’s neutrality is not tolerated by GCC’s Saudi and UAE who consider them masters of Pakistani nation.
Saudi threatened Pakistan
Another example of their threats and blackmailing had come from Abdulrahman Al-Rashed, the influential Saudi notable close to royal family who remained general manager of Al Arabiya news channel and had been editor-in-chief of Asharq Al-Awsat. On August 21, 2018, he authored a column published in Arab News under the slug: “Imran must choose between Saudi Arabia and Iran.”
He wrote: “In fact, we are not worried about Iran now. It cannot even get enough gasoline for its markets, despite being an oil producer. Tehran’s rulers today have enough problems to keep them busy, and the future looks even graver. In these changing circumstances, Pakistan has to play a more important role, as it is already a major regional player and must double the pressure on Iran to change its foreign policy. This will enhance Pakistan’s role in the Middle East and South Asia; but, if it does not, it will not be able to play the opposite role.”
PTI Government Toe Saudi-UAE line
That was why Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government began toeing the line of Saudi-UAE monarchies against Iran. First, Saudi minister of state of foreign affairs had given a highly undiplomatic statement sitting next to Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi in Islamabad during Prince MBS Pakistan visit. India had intruded into Pakistan and claimed an airstrike on Pakistani soil but Saudi minister gave no statement against India but he acted like a master of Pakistan and gave a statement against Iran whose IRGC personnel were killed in a suicidal car bomb blast on Zahedan-Khash Road.
Iran had reacted angrily on that suicide bombing and United Nations Security Council too had condemned that suicide bombing. Iran had also disclosed the name of Pakistani suicide bomber and their facilitators who perpetrated that crime. But, Saudis chose to side with India against Pakistan and dictated Pakistan to repeat Saudi-UAE narrative against Iran.
Great Nation of Pakistan knows well
The great nation of Pakistan knows this dirty game of the non-neighbouring countries in this region. Pakistanis know that US administration too had been hurling threats at Pakistan and dictating Pakistan what to do to advance US interests.
In Kabul, US special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad recently hurled another blame at Pakistan for negative role in Afghanistan.
Saudi-UAE founders of takfiri terrorists
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi should also tell Pakistani nation why he deliberately ignored threats hurled by GCC and US officials. He should tell nation about those takfiri TTP, LeJ terrorists who attacked Pakistan Army’s General Headquarters (GHQ), SSG personnel, soldiers of security forces, ISI offices and officials?
Also, Qureshi should tell nation about those Pakistani Taliban terrorists who massacred Army Public Schoolchildren? He should tell Daesh, TTP Taliban, Jundullah, LeJ (ASWJ)/Sipah-e-Sahaba, all are followers of Saudi-led GCC schools of thought.
Noteworthy: Balochistan separatists are settled in US, India, European countries. Likewise, they also settled in the GCC countries. Why not a single statement against them?????
Factually speaking, Shah Mehmood Qureshi and all those blaming Iran for anything cannot hoodwink Pakistani nation. Because great nation of Pakistan knows very well whose mosques and seminaries were preaching the dirty ideology.
Due to said ideology Pakistan has fallen to terror attacks across Pakistan. Most importantly, this ideolgy attacked GHQ, APS schoolchildren, sacred shrines of Hazrat Abdullah Shah Ghazi and many other saints shrines.
In addition, this ideology brainwashed terrorists for targeted killings of Shia Hazara community in Quetta and Shia killings across Pakistan.
So, why should Pakistanis not blame Saudi and UAE for these heinous crimes against humanity. Should Pakistanis forgive or ignore threats gainst the state of Pakistan. Why Pakistanis not take seriously Saudi and UAE threats and blackmailing since long.
Also against their attacks on the Islamic saints shrines, unity and brotherhood of Muslims????. Why great nation of Pakistan blame Iran for all said ferocious inhuman terror attacks?
Steps in right direction
It is high time for Pakistani regime to refrain from making Pakistan a client state again. Entire world is suspicious of Pakistan because of those terrorists who follow the Saudi-UAE sectarian ideology.
Noteworthy: world people don’t go much against any other country as against Pakistan for this reason.
No neighbouring country has any problem with Shia Muslims’ tolerant ideology. Most importantly, Iran has close friends and partners such as China, Turkey, Afghnaistan and Iraq, let alone India.
Million dollar question:
Had it not been unpardonable crimes to bomb GHQ, ISI, security personnel?
Then why these same terrorists continue to remain darling?. Because they follow Saudi-UAE ideology???!!!.
Finally, Pakistani nation turns down Saudi-UAE dictation to Pakistan. Hence, it is high time to realise there is no option but to keep friendly relations with all neighbouring countries. They include Iran, Afghanistan, China and India.
