How CPEC will Bring Stability and Security In Pakistan

How CPEC will Bring Stability and Security In Pakistan

Saleem Abbas Shigri

Though the wave of terrorism is posing a threat to the stability and security of the country, but CPEC can streamline the security and stability of Pakistan by adding more incentives for other countries to make strategic alliances with Pakistan. In international relations, alliance is formal agreement between two or more states for mutual support in case of any war. Pakistan is experiencing the gravest problem of the so-called instability and insecurity which has become a headache for federation and nightmare for public. Relations of Pakistan with most of its neighbouring countries have seen many ups and downs. Since partition, Pakistan and India have fought several wars over territorial claims, and Pakistan’s relations with Afghanistan have been strained for much of Pakistan’s history due to Afghanistan’s claim on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. “Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province belongs to Afghans” (Afghanistan Times). Though Pakistan has cordial relations with Iran, but the recent threat of Iran’s Army Chief has procreated concerns over Pak-Iran bilateral relationship. Despite having these acrimonious relationships with her neighbors, Pakistan has also involved in the war against Soviet Union, and played a vital role in the formation of Taliban. “The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) worked in tandem with Pakistan to create the "monster" that is today Afghanistan's ruling Taliban” (US Expert on South Asia). Later, Taliban led an insurgency in Afghanistan, and Pakistan also became a victim of Taliban’s terrorism activities. In lieu of relationships with neighbouring countries, Pakistan has a serious need of alliance with other countries to solidify and organize political and military support, and maintain balance of power in the region. CPEC provides Pakistan a golden chance to manage her socio-political challenges by attracting other countries with opportunity of economic synergy thereby influences them to form alliances with Pakistan.
As CPEC would bring foreign investments in Pakistan, law and order situations of Pakistan will count a lot for the investing countries especially to China, and Russia. Russia, as well, is showing her interests to align with CPEC. “Russia planned to merge the Moscow-led Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) with the CPEC” (Global Times). CPEC will be an
opportunity for Pakistan, China and Russia to enhance economic cooperation. The alliance of three nuclear powers would reduce chances of foreign interventions in Pakistani territory. As more and more countries align themselves to the mega projects of CPEC, chances of alliance formation also increases and this trend would play a pressing role to rule out terrorism up to a great extent from the region. In the quest of benefiting from CPEC, Afghanistan, India and Iran would eventually become a part of this upcoming alliance. These events would reduce terrorism from the region as neighboring countries would have friendly relations, and it will streamline security, and stability in the region.

CPEC' A Fate changer for Balochistan.

Nasir Ali
CPEC and Balochistan | Opinion from LUMS

Saleem Abbas Shigri
LUMS

  CPEC will help the country to develop the under-developed province, i.e. Balochistan and reduce the development gap between Balochistan and other provinces. Having connected Kasghar with deep sea Gawadar Port, CPEC will open new avenues of opportunities to the unprivileged province of Pakistan, i.e. Balochistan, and upgrade its profile on the national and international level. Though the province has geo-strategic importance and unlimited natural resources, but, decades of administrative and serious political neglect has plagued the province with disturbances and unrest. “The issue of Balochistan started emerging when the future of Kalat State was decided by referendum in Shahi Jirga in June 1947, in favor of Pakistan” (Balochistan Past). After independence, Government failed to comprehend the complex dynamics of Balochistan and tried to resolve issues through reactive measures which lacked a long-term vision. Resultantly, the disturbances expanded in quantum and space and engulfed entire Balochistan. Due to these factors, political dynamics of the province has remained uncertain, and it revolves around pro and anti-federation. Furthermore, poverty, illiteracy, and remoteness exacerbated the complexity of problems. An enormous amount of natural resources, strategic location, and current political dynamics of Balochistan provide an ideal opportunity for exploitation by inimical forces. Hence, Pakistan’s leap forward towards prosperity is connected with Balochistan, and CPEC would be vital for addressing the concerns of Balochistan.
  The mega projects of CPEC will contribute to the development of Balochistan, and standard of living will be improved by discouraging people from an insurgency. In the developmental sector, up-gradation of Gawadar Port, construction of the international airport, and the establishment of hospitals are the hallmarks of progress in Balochistan. “With estimated 7.1 billion initial investments through CPEC, Balochistan ranks second in its share from $ 46 billion” (CPEC and Balochistan). Such initiatives will improve the territorial infrastructure of Balochistan and living standards of its people. As CPEC has added much value to the profile of Balochistan, the federal government would work to remove the strong political deprivation of the province. The federal government would consider the interest of Balochistan while formulating any decision on the national and international level. Subsequently, CPEC will add much-needed value to the profile of the Balochistan.

Terrorism & it's causes

Shujaat Ali
Terrorism & it's causes

Shujaat Kamal


The term ‘terrorism’ was first used in 1795 during the French uprising which resulted in what we call as French revolution. Terrorism has many definitions. The simplest of those is “ the act of violence which spreads fear and panic among the general public.” Any offense which causes violence and shatters peace and harmony is terrorism. In fact, any deliberate act which aims at targeting noncombatants or unarmed civilians is terrorism. No matter which country or group commits such criminal offense. If any country is involved in bombings & in mass destruction, this is termed as state terrorism. We know if we are not that naïve which country nuked Hiroshima & Nagasaki. Which countries were involved in peace loving civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan & Libya? Now the state declares any non-state actors or dissident groups as terrorists even if they are fighting against the oppressive regime.Today almost every country is among those victimised by terrorism. Terrorists have nothing to do with religion. Their main aim is to gain wealth and power. They don’t discriminate between poor and wealthy people. They search soft targets to hit or attack. People stuck by ideology and description of religion by people who have extremists mind set. Their main purpose is to operate under the banner of religion. Why they try to do that and get success?. Look, for instance, they have to make people believe that they are doing or struggling for people’s betterment but how they can do that without some people support? The main reason behind terrorists’ acts that’s why is that they want to persuade people towards their ideology and definition of religious obligation like most importantly Jihad. Extremists have justifications for what they do. They claim responsibility for every terrorist attack after the incident, even some cases they release videos and audio messages. They warn states without any fear. Terrorism is regarded for his reason as an existential threat to the world’s peace. Every country has its own strategy to combat this menace according to the available resources.


Pakistan like other countries has judicial acts to counter terrorism named as Anti-Terrorism Act ATA. Anti-terrorism courts ATC have also been formed to hear ATA related cases. This law just describes those acts which spread fear and panic in the society would be considered as terrorism.Of course, these are acts of terrorism and the people behind these criminal acts are terrorists but what about those who are against our state? Who are involved in killing our army personals? Those who just don’t believe in our Constitution terming it as un-Islamic, what about terrorists of these kinds? How to handle them? The problem with this act is that terrorism is not defined with clarity. The ambit of law must be cleared. The law must define and discriminate between people involved in personal matters result in killings and those extremists whose ideology is a threat to our Constitution and our existence. Militants involved in the conspiracy and are playing with our peace are need to be counter vehemently.Pakistan has been a victim of terrorism from decades. Although we have paid heavy human and economic cost still we couldn’t defeat them completely. Pakistan army is battling with militants in Waziristan and heading towards the goal of clearing the soil from terrorists’ existence. Forces are destroying terrorist hideouts in North Waziristan.


What are the root causes of terrorism? How a person becomes ready to kill someone? What that force actually is which prepares one’s mind set against someone. How are they trained? Different people have different ideas about the causes of terrorism. One is, of course, is not naïve about how vicious terrorism is and how it is linked directly with the mind. Those involved in extremism have a hostile mind set. They spurn people they have differences with. Amongst all, the wrong interpretation of religion is the vital & core reason behind extremists mind set up. What then? People start hatred which ended up in killings & violence. When the people are present who teach hatred then the next step comes that is ‘recruitment’. In poor countries like Pakistan, poor people become a soft target. They have nothing to eat. They are jobless or illiterate. They get inspired by extremists ideology. This is how they recruit poor people for their notorious cause. This situation is alarming. The government needs to focus on the quality education & the improvement of literacy rate at the same time. When people’s rights are denied, they look towards terrorist outfits. Social injustice like health facilities etc are also causing people to become the prey of this menace. Another important responsibility of government is to create job opportunities. We have a very low literacy rate, even after that, we have a big unemployment ratio. It’s up to the government whether it would take pragmatic steps towards quality education & to produce job opportunities or it would render to terrorism. Initiatives to refrain the new generation from the ideology they are preaching and following are the need of the hour. Whatever the causes of terrorism are, the impacts are same and those are disastrous. We all are witnessing countries suffering from violence. Infrastructure is nowhere. Schools and colleges are being bombed. People including women & children are being killed for no reason. Fear & panic have gripped people’s lives. As this crippling problem is the issue of almost the whole world, an implementable solution should be drawn. The countries suffering from extremism need to use political and diplomatic channels to resolve it forever. Strict laws need to be introduced to curb the curse of terrorism. The judicial system needs to be empowered and all other law enforcement agencies must coordinate for this cause. The state must move to top gear for rule of law where the government writ is challenged.

I do not believe in luck. I believe in Dedication. Inspiration from Gilgit Baltistan.

Nasir Ali

"I do not believe in luck. I believe in Dedication, Honesty, and determination. I started my education in a govt primary school located in my village Goharabad Gilgit Baltistan. Till class third, I studied in Urdu medium. After this, I moved to a private English medium school. But unfortunately, that was too difficult for me to get enrolled in English medium. Because I was even not aware of English Letters(Alphabets). So told my teachers and parents I will continue my studies in Urdu medium that will be best for me. I got admission in DJ middle School Gitch that is 5km away from my home. It takes almost 2 hours to reach school by foot. We used to study and memorize lectures while going to school and coming back to home. All around it takes 3.30 hours walking distance. It took 5 years of my life to complete my study duration in DJ school Gitch. When I passed Class 8th A higher secondary school Was constructed In Gahkuch. It is considered as the best Institute for quality education. But it was not easy to get admission in this School. I Really worked day and night to clear the test of This Institute. As my family background was not financially good at that time. Even my parents resisted to help me in this regard. But I was Very much crazy to get admission in this school. So one of my brothers helped me out and came with me to get its admission Form. I filled this form. enrolled in admission test Cleared it and selected for an interview. I got admission in this school and stood among the Top 25 Students out of thousand candidates. I spent 5 years in this institute from pre-9th to Fsc Part II. This institute became a blessing for me. It was really hard to study here in the Beginning for me. Because all subjects were in English medium. My first year in this school was very hard. Anyhow, I really worked hard and sustained here. This school has a rule. If you couldn’t meet their criteria they kick you out. But Alhamdullilah I sustained here and I stood among top three students in this whole duration. I got 7th position In all Over Gilgit Baltistan in Matriculation and 4th position in HSSC. Then I got selected for NTHP IBA Karachi. But I was interested in Chemical Engineering so I applied for Nomination for Engineering Seats got selected for Dawood University of engineering and technology.

Recently I won Chinese Govt scholarship for Ms in chemical Engineer and the only Chemical engineer and the only girl from Gilgit Baltistan.
