Pakistan wants India to move on from the Pathankot Attacks, wants India to forget 26/11, forget about past, forget about the dead, and think about the "peaceful" future. Pakistan doesn't even mince these words, doesn't make indirect statements, but have the audacity to say this upfront, and the separatist, who are still the owners of Indian passports, support them, lobby for them.
This is not war, this is not bright daylight murder. If it can remind us of anything, it reminds us of RAPE. This is what it is.
Let me reframe the context, Pakistan has been raping India all this while. Since the word rape is taken more seriously than murder these days, probably this analogy will wake us up.
If you have ever watched those old movies from the 60s, there was always a bad guy named Madan, often zamindaar's son, who wouldn't only rape the main protagonist’s sister, but then pay off the evil uncle (generally the mama) to get her hand in marriage. Meanwhile the hero is in the city trying really hard to meet the end meet, for ‘behen ki shadi’ and ‘ma ki aankhon ja ilaaj’.
If you haven't guessed the casting of our analogous 60s film, here it goes,
The rapist - Pakistan
Hero's sister - Kashmir
Evil uncle - The separatists
Hero's blind mother - Indian govt
Hero - Indian people and Indian armed forces
Those movies though meant to be serious, may appear comical and clichéd in present day and age. Never thought that will see those patterns repeating in this scenario.
If you can't get to Madan, since his father is rich and powerful (China and USA), at least get to the Evil Uncle first (the Hurriyat). We can kick Madan’s ass in the climax.
Hope this analogy can provide the necessary jolt!
