Kabul urged to realise new realities
Drawing the Afghan government’s consideration towards new truths, Pakistan’s barrier foundation has affirmed that the Kabul organization is unjustified in saying that the Durand Line Treaty was a constrained arrangement.
Sources inside the barrier foundation, while conversing with The News, have reaffirmed that Durand Line is a universally settled fringe, yet once in a while, Afghanistan government has been attempting to make vagueness and whine in regards to the issue in light of the way that every one of the legislatures in Afghanistan have stayed burning of accessing the Arabian Sea through Balochistan.
Concurring the sources, “A portion of the complaints that exude from the Afghan side on the subject of the legitimacy of the Durand Line are: firstly, that the understanding was constrained upon the Afghan King, Abdul Rahman Khan, after transactions with the British government in 1893;secondly, it was marked just for a time of 100 years and thus it lapsed in 1994 and thirdly, that the assention was made with the British Government and not with Pakistan, thus generally, it could be viewed as invalid.
Accordingly, Pakistan’s stand on the Durand Line has been that it is a legitimate universal limit, perceived and affirmed by Afghanistan on a few events. Pakistan has dependably maintained the standards of worldwide law and has kept up the position of a successor state to the rights and obligations acquired from the British Government in India. Pakistan, as a successor state to British India determines full power over territories and its kin east of Durand Line and has every one of the rights and commitments of a successor state. As the Treaty was inked in Afghanistan and was further sanctioned in consequent agreements of 1905, 1919, and 1921, this discredits the Afghanassertion that it was a constrained bargain. In the meantime, no place in the settlement, there is notice of 100 years’ course of events”.
The sources were posed a question about the oft-examined Pakhtun ethnicity and fondness. The answer was, “Today’s reality is very distinctive. Those raising voice against the Durand Line or for Pakhtun ethnicity need to understand the new substances. Actually there are more Pakhtuns living on this side (i.e in Pakistan) of the Durand Line than in Afghanistan. Indeed, even the submission of 1947 and the choice of tribal Jirga of FATA are the most grounded and irrefutable actualities to judge the proclivity of Pakhtuns with Pakistan. Other than that, today’s Pakhtuns from KP, Baluchistan and FATA have a solid support in all national and government organizations including military, sports, instruction, legislative issues and every single other stroll of life and stand with Pakistan. Also, besides, these tribal individuals have rendered tremendous penances in war against dread and the entire country regards their penances”.
