Pakistan has not learned its lesson even after admitting its mistake. This is not a new attitude of overturned Pakistan. Moving forward, then backtracking and then saying something else doing something else… He has done the same on many occasions.
The situation is bad in Pakistan.
India becomes independent in 1947 and with this independence two countries come into existence – India and Pakistan. Where India is emerging as the third superpower of the world. On the other hand, Pakistan is facing poverty and starvation. Due to conflict between government and army, bad policies, terrorism, deteriorating relations with good countries, the situation in Pakistan went from bad to worse.
Despite this, Pakistan is not coming to its senses. He is not learning from his mistakes. How many governments have come and gone since independence, but Pakistan is standing the same place. In the last 5-6 decades, from Bhutto family to Sharif family or from Musharraf to Imran Khan… these rulers who were in power contributed less in the progress of the country and more in its plight.
It is not that Pakistan does not realize its mistakes. Read the recent statement of Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
“India is our neighbor and to be very clear, we are not neighbors by choice, but we have to live together. It is upon us how to live peacefully. Pakistan has taken its lessons. We fought three wars with India and brought misery, unemployment and poverty in the country. We want to live peacefully with India solving our problems.
What kind of future is Pakistan shaping for the coming generations?
Shahbaz Sharif, in a conversation with Arabic TV channel Al Arabiya, talks about improving relations with India on the one hand, and on the other hand again starts chanting about Kashmir. This is not a new attitude of overturned Pakistan. Moving forward, then backtracking and then saying something else doing something else… He has done the same on many occasions.
