India’s Bid to Keep the Image of Pakistan Tainted
It is of course no longer hidden to anyone that India has been using the proxy war inside Pakistan over the years to spread the tainted and extremist image of the country to the world. Current world order, which has integrated economies and trade relations, actually depends upon the security of investment which corresponds to the overall security condition of the particular country.
Lack of security, or even such projection, tends to pull away investors eventually leading to lack of trade. When a country suffers economically, it tends to go down from security to welfare spectrum losing its ability to respond to extraneous and internal threats. It was precisely the plan which was worked upon over the years. The infliction of 5th generation war upon Pakistan and it was working quite well for the conventional adversary of Pakistan.

When the loopholes along the conventional and feasible terrain, Afghanistan, are plugged by Pakistani security forces, India has tried to malign the integrity of a forum like FATF to propagate its vested agenda. “The proceedings went well and almost all the FATF members appreciated measures taken by Pakistan and actions planned by it,” told one of the Pakistani officials who attended the FATF meeting held in Australia.
When a broad consensus and appreciation had been achieved on part of the FATF as a whole regarding Pakistan’s efforts, India tried to once again bring in old rhetoric just to keep the image of Pakistan tainted which suits its purpose.
As already stated that Iran and Afghanistan are the regions from where illegal cash mostly enters Pakistan for the financing of terrorists and both the countries are being used by India for orchestration of attacks inside Pakistan. While it is important that the flow of illegal cash must be halted for good, it is equally significant for Pakistan to highlight the issue and world to acknowledge that who actually is behind this dirty warmongering game.
