मेरा वो मतलब नहीं था

Nothing has changed in Pakistan, or rather nothing can change in Pakistan. Their govt may have changed but they’re still hanging on for dear survival as they were earlier, and they’re still as anti-India as they were earlier. It isn’t really surprising therefore, to see Shahid Afridi too not changing, or rather not growing up. He still puts his foot in his mouth whenever he gets an opportunity, as he did earlier. Like he did with his umpteen retirement announcements where he went back on his words and made umpteen minus one comebacks, he has again gone back on his words recently, and that too in less than 24 hours.
Speaking to students in UK’s parliament a couple of days ago, he said that Pakistan isn’t really interested in Kashmir. Forget about the statement per se, I was surprised to see Afridi being invited to UK’s parliament, of all the places. And that too, to speak to them! I mean, what can he (not) teach UK’s parliamentarians (or their kids) what they already don’t know? I had barely recovered from my shock when I read that he had further stated that, as it is Pakistan is not able to take care of its existing four provinces. What he meant was, जो है वो तो संभल नहीं रहा, कश्मीर कहाँ से संभालेंगे! He was right on that score. For once, he was speaking the truth, or rather the half-truth. He should’ve said, जो चार province बचे हैं, वो ही नहीं संभल रहे, कश्मीर कहाँ से संभालेंगे. You see, Pakistan had Bangladesh too till a few decades ago, but they couldn’t take care of it, and lost it. They don’t know, if they don’t take care of what they now have, they may lose some again. However this time, if they do, they wouldn’t be left with anything to lose anymore to anyone.
For once, I thought Afridi had developed some spunks, though a little late in life, but nonetheless. However, I was in for a shock again. Within just a few hours he had gone back on his words saying that media is twisting his words. He was like, मेरा वो मतलब नहीं था! It’s something like, when a girl smiles to a boy and he believes that she likes him, but the girl turns back and says, मेरा वो मतलब नहीं था!
To be fair to Afridi, he’s not the only Pakistani who has gone back on his words. Nawaz Sharif too went back on his words after saying, Kasab is a Pakistani. When questioned, Sharif too had gone back on his words, quite predictably, saying that media is twisting his words, meaning, मेरा वो मतलब नहीं था. It didn’t occur to him that ‘शरीफ’ लोग अपनी बातों से नहीं मुकरते.
Like I said, nothing has changed in Pakistan, or rather nothing can change in Pakistan. They’re fast galloping towards their final destruction. The only question is, how long do they have.
And to those who’re concerned about my use of words like ‘final destruction’, I can only say, मेरा वो मतलब नहीं था.

As I said in my talk, wars need to be ended and not just stopped. There’s a huge difference between the two things. Had UN been around during the second world war it’d have stopped it in the middle and allowed Hitler to continue to rule Germany. God only knows how many more Jews he’d have gone on to kill. In Kashmir, we didn’t allow the war to be completed in 1947, 65, 71 as well as in 1999. And we continue to pay for that blunder. We have lost more than a hundred thousand lives since 1947 because of our problems with Pakistan. Had we allowed the war to be completed, I’m sure this issue would not have cost us this much. Stopping a war before it completes its course prolongs the pain as the issue which caused the war doesn’t go away. It lingers on and on, till it brims over once again leading to another war. This is exactly what has happened with us. Even in 1971, we completed the war on our eastern border for benefit of Bangladeshis but didn’t do it on the western borders for our own benefit.
