Brig. (Retd.) Said Nazir (Defense Analyst): World human rights organizations are consistently expressing concerns over Indian controversial policies. As a result of these policies, Indian farmers are holding street protests against three laws brought about by the New Delhi government. Moreover, many separatist movements are active in India. On multiple fronts, the Indian real face has been badly exposed. It is high time to put India in a tight corner and stop it from committing atrocities and human rights violations in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The world must also take notice of report of EU DisinfoLab and strict action should be taken against the organizations involved in anti-Pakistan propaganda. Pakistan should also increase its diplomatic efforts to expose Indian policies in IIOJ&K. We hope that the newly elected US president Joe Biden will definitely take notice of what India is doing against the innocent Kashmiris.
Dr. Zafar Nawaz Jaspal (IR Expert): Pakistan is effectively highlighting Indian policies, its human rights abuses in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and attitude towards minorities at the United Nations. Narrative of Pakistan is being acknowledged by the civilized world. The priorities of newly elected US President Joe Biden may have human rights and Kashmir issue in agenda. But it is also a fact that every country prefers its national interests. Therefore, there should not be much expectation from the United States. Pakistan, at its end, gave a befitting and mature response to Indian aggression two years back. The response of Pakistan also exposed the Indian capability of waging conventional war. Pakistan is far better than India as far as its armed forces and nuclear assets are concerned. The popularity graph of Narendra Modi is declining day by day. The Indian government must attend to its internal affairs rather than harboring regional hegemonic aspirations. The protests of Indian farmers against Modi's draconian policies are also becoming a headache for the New Delhi government. Pakistan is a responsible nuclear state and its nuclear assets are for self-defense. Pakistan should adopt a pro-active approach in the follow up of the dossier presented at international forums, including the United Nations.
Lt. Gen. (Retd.) Asif Yasin Malik (Defense Analyst): The word peace matters a lot and it is rightly said that peace is the best defense of any country. Pakistan Navy is going to hold seventh Multinational Maritime Exercise "Aman" in which navies from 40 countries are to participate. The drill is meant to contribute towards peace at both regional and global levels. It is a good initiative of Pakistan and I must appreciate the military diplomacy and foreign policy of the country in this regard. Such exercises provide the best platform to exchange experiences and ideas in order to achieve peace. I am sure this naval drill will play a pivotal role in strengthening maritime cooperation, promoting a secure maritime environment and regional and global peace and stability.
Vice Admiral (Retd.) Ahmad Tasnim (Defense Analyst): The upcoming maritime multinational exercise in Pakistan will be a reply to anti-Pakistan elements that are involved in efforts to isolate us. The navies from 40 countries will be part of this exercise. Naval assets including naval ships, helicopters, Special Forces elements and observers from these nations will be participating in the exercise which is a good development. Another benefit of this drill will be that Pakistan can learn a lot from the expertise of other nations and can upgrade its technology as well. Moreover, the interaction between different countries on a single platform is also another advantage of such exercises.
