Is Pakistan Arming the Kashmir-Centric Terrorist Groups with Turkish Drones? http://usanasfoundation.com/is-pakistan-arming-the-kashmir-centric-terrorist-groups-with-turkish-drones
Lately, Kashmir has witnessed several Drone sorties from Pakistan dropping weapons and cash. Chinese Kamikaze and Turkish Bayraktar may be the next lethal weapons in the hands of Lashkar and Jaish.
After the abrogation of article 370, it appears that the so-called “Kashmir issue” is tottering to its natural death. With every passing day, the false narratives, lies, and deceitful structures of jihadist violence are slowly and smoothly inching towards a dead end. Interestingly, in the geopolitical domain, Pakistan seems to be losing its status of India’s rival-state, a phenomenon increasingly facilitated by Islamabad’s seamless transformation into a Chinese colony and its never-ending domestic political and economic crises. With China’s aggression in Ladakh and the US banking on India as a major bulwark against expansionist China, Pakistan’s eclipse from India’s security calculus as its main rival appears final.
However, is it so? Can the Pak army afford to let Kashmir slide out of its control? Once the perception of “Kashmir not being an issue anymore” gets ingrained in the popular consciousness, the Pak army will face an existential threat. It won’t be easy to justify the mammoth budgets it has been accumulating for decades in the name of Kashmir. But then, how to pump the much-needed life-blood into fast-dying militancy in Kashmir?
