I dont think these are practical steps..i mean i dont think we will be able to influence their currency to a point of it being 1:1000.
Trade is a two way street. India can make more money from Pak than the other way around.
We cannot be selective in our "break all communications" thing. If we do that, Sikhs will not be able to go to Nankana Sahib as Pak will respond in kind by not allowing it.
None of these measures will ruin Pakistani economically. They still have many countries that will bail them out by giving them alms or aid .
What we need to do is to make them realize that if they do not rethink of policies against India we will break them into pieces. Till not we have been talking about such strategies and now time has come to put it into implementations with renewed . we have more than enough resources to fight this proxy war but if we play our cards well Pakistan will destroy itself. If Pakistan doesnt stop supporting separatism we should definitely pay them back in same manner .
Right then, the answer is let there be no Pakistan.. Not in the current borders at least. Cut off their direct access to China then by taking back what is ours. though that is difficult in the present circumstances, but once that country is cut up, GB can be got over as well which is the key to any Chinese dominance of Pak or what is left of it.
You can only use economic leverage if you actually have a strong economic relation.
There is no trade relation with Pakistan with India at the moment, then what leverage are we going to have. Cue this with the recent Chinese-Japanese spat and China stopping ecport of rare earth metals to press their point. This is how economic leverage can be used.
Besides, in the current setup in Pakistan, does India really have to do anything to reduce the economic activity in Pakistan? Its already under 2%, power crisis and insecurity that is sapping economic growth. Wtihout India doing anything, this is the situation.
Raja Mohan was part of the National Security Advisory board between 2004-2006 and obvioulsy had a lot of input in policy making during this era. This is when a lot of work was done on Kashmir as well and a deal was almost ready to be signed until Musharraf was kicked out.
Pakistan will not do that; currently they are trying to project themselves as a more "Sikh-friendly" country than India. Basically, all the Sikh demands made before the 1980s secessionist movement from India, have been put in place by Pakistan. The Sikh demand for a separate Sikh marriage law which was turned down by New Delhi, was enacted in Pakistan as the "Anand Karj Act". During the Pakistan floods, Sikh community abroad played a major part in flood relief; first helping the Sikhs of Pakistan, than extending aid to the others. Moreover, major Sikh functions actually get more security presence their, than the local Muslim religious functions. Sikh events are protected by the Pakistani Rangers. Though a parade on Gurpurab was not allowed by the government to take place, since they could could not guarantee that it wouldnt be attacked by militants; and such attacks dent Pakistan's image among the community.
pakistan should be payed back in their same coin.the RAW should resume its covert operation in GB,POK,BALOUCHISTAN.also it should be backed by cyber espionage.if they wants to bleed india though a thousand cuts, then we should bleed them by 10000 cuts.also there is a huge anti-pakistan movement in the above mentioned areas,we can leverage it to humiliate them by repeating the feat of 1971.
No, that is what I'm trying to say. They are trying to reach the entire community and keep them distinct from the wider Indo-Pak politics; which is a game of politics in itself. Pakistan was once the training ground for thousands of Sikh militants and it is common knowledge in Punjab that all the border areas were corridors for the "kharkus". Even today, some of the top Khalistani militants, leaders of groups such as Babbar Khalsa Interntational, all live in Pakistan. Wadhawa Singh Babbar, one of the biggest Khalistani terror chiefs is living comfortably in Pakistan. This is the man whose militant group blew up the Air India plane over Ireland killing over 329 people. He's also the one, whose group assassinated the than Chief Minister of Punjab, Beant Singh. Another man, Gajinder Singh, whose group hijacked the Air India plane in 1981 and flew it to Lahore; he too has never again stepped foot in India and lives a comfortable life there. The rest of the crew who was responsible for the hijacking all fled to foreign countries from Pakistan. Lakhvir Singh Rode, leader of International Sikh Youth Federation, another terrorist group, lives in Pakistan. Paramjit Singh Panjwar, the chief of Khalistan Commando Force, a group which routinely carried out bombings and assassinations of Hindu political figures, also enjoys his life in Pakistan. Ranjit Singh Neeta, the chief of Khalistan Zindabad Force, too lives in Pakistan. The list goes on and on. It is no coincidence that Indian intelligence has pointed towards the Khalistani groups joining hands with other Pak-sponsored groups such as LeT. Pakistan is trying to revive Sikh militancy, and for that, it is trying to project itself as a "friend" of the wider Sikh community. It is the one reason, they were discussing lifting visa restrictions for Sikh pilgrims to Pakistan, despite the Indo-Pak relationship.
