India is now making overtures to the Taliban, despite India’s unforgettable, brutal history with jihad, its current tensions with Islamic supremacist Pakistan, and the communal tension between Hindus and Muslim rooted in ancient animosities and the battles in Jammu and Kashmir. Writes Christine Douglass-Williams
In a world without America as leader, the order becomes the laws of the jungle and survival of the fittest. Alliances are now being strengthened in a manner reminiscent of those seen in maximum security prisons, where in order to survive, one must ally with friends of mutual convenience, no matter how dangerous they are, or what they may stand for.
India is now making overtures to the Taliban, despite India’s unforgettable, brutal history with jihad, its current tensions with Islamic supremacist Pakistan, and the communal tension between Hindus and Muslim rooted in ancient animosities and the battles in Jammu and Kashmir.
India sent an official delegation to Kabul last week, signaling a formal engagement with the Taliban, and the reason is need:
It appears that the Indian foreign and security establishment is less divided about the need to engage formally with the Taliban and prevent getting marginalized in a country that New Delhi sees as vital to its strategic interests in the region, and where the people’s affection for India is legendary.
On the heels of that announcement came another. Afghanistan’s Defence Minister Mullah Yaqub, who is son of Taliban founder Mullah Omar, said he’s willing to send “Afghan army personnel to India for military training, saying they ‘don’t have any issue with it.’” India clearly does not either. Now we know why India’s Bharatiya Janata Party suspended national spokesperson Nupur Sharma and Naveen Kumar Jindal from the party’s primary membership for pointing out Prophet of Islam’s child marriage. India doesn’t want trouble with surrounding Islamic countries, especially while it now is warming up to the Taliban.
The primary interest of the Taliban is Islam and spreading the Sharia regionally and globally by whatever means possible. Let’s hope India remembers that for the long term. In the end, despite sectarian divisions in Islam, the Taliban will likely betray India and support Pakistan. It was Pakistan’s army and intelligence services — Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI) — that helped build the Taliban’s military force.
As the world realigns, with nations scrambling to form new alliances for survival (some rather unsavory), America and the West, which once served as bastions of human rights and democracy, based on Judeo-Christian principles, sink further.
One wonders what will happen if Trump — whose signature brand is “make America great again” — returns, especially now that the agenda of the globalist cabal and its minions has been so clearly exposed.
Afghanistan’s all-powerful Defence Minister Mullah Yaqub, son of Taliban founder Mullah Omar, has expressed willingness to send Afghan army personnel to India for military training, saying they “don’t have any issue with it”.
He made these comments in an exclusive interview with India’s News 18 TV channel when asked would Taliban be willing to send their army officers to India for military training.
“Yes, we don’t see any issue with it. Afghan-India relations get strengthened and set the ground for this. There will be no issues with it,” he remarked.
When asked would current regime in Afghanistan wish to have a close defence ties with India, Mullah Yaqub said first they wanted to establish strong diplomatic relations with all countries including India. “When we will together have cordial political and diplomatic relations, then only we would be ready for defence relations. Neither there will be any problem with it nor do we see any issue with it,” he added.
Speaking about country’s ties with other countries, Mullah Yaqub said they want cordial relations with all countries of the world, especially the neighboring countries including India. “We want good and cordial relations with India and we hope that India would reciprocate and maintain good relations in many aspects with us.”
The defence minister also urged India and Pakistan to resolve their issues through dialogue, saying that Taliban administration did not want to intervene in the bilateral matters of arch-rival neighbors.
“We will not allow Pakistan to use Afghanistan’s soil against India and we will not allow India to use Afghanistan’s soil against Pakistan,” he said while responding to a question over the alleged presence of terror outfits on Afghan soil.
“We want cordial relations with both countries and do not want to interfere or get involved in the issues of the two countries. We are an independent country and our foreign policy is guided by our national interests”.
