Is United Arab Emirates waging a media war against Pakistan?

Indians Military Establishment is currently investigating the cause of fire at Uri; Indians occupied Kashmir, and subsequent death of its 17 soldiers. However, ‘Gulf News’ in its editorial “World stands united against cowardly attack in Kashmir dated 19 Sep 2016” not only claims that it was a terrorist attack sponsored by its nuclear neighbor, but also confirms that Kashmir is integral part of India. The worthy paper also grants the India its right to retaliate against its neighbor. The paper says “As a response to such an attack, India has every right to defend its territorial integrity and take appropriate measures required to pursue justice and eradicate the menace of terrorism”.

In its opening sentence the paper opines that it was a ‘despicable cowardly attack’ on soldiers because four commando-style gunmen hit the Indians soldiers at the time when they were little lazy and were changing guards. The paper calls upon entire international community to condemn such a heinous crime. Gulf News also calls upon India to continue confidence-building measures that “India seeks to undertake with its neighbors, including Pakistan”.

The Paper very kindly advises India not to avenge the attack, “a jaw for a tooth” because it only amplifies the sharply ratcheting tension between the nuclear neighbors and will not serve the peaceful interests of any state in the long run. Editorial board of ‘Gulf News’ also suggest that Indian should develop even stronger defenses in occupied Kashmir. It says India must also investigate and rectify the serious lapses that allowed one of its most strategic security infrastructures to come under attack, and build a better bulwark of defence bases.

As a student of International Relations, I am wondering; how one should look at the editorial of ‘Gulf News’? Should world stand united for innocent Kashmiri children, women and youth who are being indiscriminately tortured, killed and humiliated on daily basis OR World should stand united against attack on soldiers deployed in occupied territory? How come editorial staff of ‘Gulf News’ is so ill-informed that they don’t know that point of attack is not integral part of India and there is an indigenous freedom movement for which the Kashmiri Muslims are paying heavy price with tears and blood on daily basis?.

Is ‘Gulf News’, a state controlled newspaper is conveying some kind of UAE‘s annoyance to Government of Pakistan? What could be that?, one could only guess. Whatever could be the reasons but it is not expected out of ‘Gulf News’ editorial staff to damage the cause of hapless Kashmiris. This editorial will sadden anyone who cares for human dignity in Kashmir but surely every Muslim who is greatly perturbs over gross human violations in Indian occupied Kashmir. UN resolutions calling for plebiscite are still pending on Kashmir.

I am happy that despite India’s big market and interest of Multinational Companies, human conscious of many world leaders is still alive. India is under immense pressure to halt ill-treatment of Kashmiris and hopefully something good for Kashmiris will emerge soon. It is also being talked about on various forums that incident at ‘Uri, Indians occupied Kashmir’ was jointly planned by Indian National Security Adviser Mr. Ajit Doval to whom intelligence agencies such as the RAW report, and newly appointed member of Standing Committee on Defense, Dr. Subramanian Swammy, a research fellow who was expelled from Harvard University of United States for his extremist views. It was an effort to relieve world pressure on Mr. Narenda Moodi before meeting World leaders at the forum of UN General Assembly. Hopefully the inquiry by Indian Military highlighting the real cause for murder of 17 Indians soldiers would also be published by Gulf News.

Once considered a great friend of #Pakistan, the UAE Govt is now getting overtly hostile to Pakistan and its geopolitical ambitions and interests as the tiny but rich Gulf state picks its alliance with #India over #Pakistan, its state funded media has opened its guns against Pakistan. This marks a new strategy by the UAE Govt which is expected to severely damage bilateral relations with Islamabad.

UAE is certainly not a friend of Pakistan, but we have put them in their place by not joining the illegal war in Yemen.

Neither does it solely revolve around blackmail and nuclear reactor deals. Your relationship with Russia should have taught you this by now.

What is the exact reason for this sudden change in attitudeof UAE? Cant understand... If Pakistan's refusal to join yemen war is the reason...then even Saudi Arabia hasnt overtly turned against Pak.. Infact it seems after initial disappointment...things seem to be normal now between Pak and Saudi Arabia..or so it seems... Pak seems to have pacified Saudis to an extent..ther have been many bilateral visits since then between Pak and Saudis...and if media is to be believed...Saudis have even offered Gen Raheel to head 34 country military alliance....so here everthing seems to be fine apparently...what caused UAE to turn soo much against Pak, all of a sudden?

It is not only UAE. Arabs are generally racist and hostile people. Apart from the Saudis which we have traditionally and reasonably good relations with I don't believe in a relationship with the Arab world.

UAE needs to be b!tchslapped. They are seemingly angry about Gwadar and systematically trying to sabotage it. They are also angry about their Yemen request being turned down. Killing and bombing their own brothers and expecting Pakistan to legitimatize their nasty war. Not going to happen.

UAE still continues to pump in millions of dollars worth of investments, they continue to consider themselves as an economy and defense partner of Pakistan.

Exaggerated blog articles and Modi's visit won't change that.

As a student if he can call himself one, he needs to know the difference between lamenting on the internal affairs of another nation and an state organised & sponsored attack as a part of state policy.

Most of editorial staff of Gulf News, Khaleej Times etc is Indian.

What else do you expect?

And besides, UAE or for that matter Gulf States don't give a shyte about poorer Muslim countries.

We should also look at our own national interest only.

Ego of mighty sheikhs have been hurt due to Yemen fiasco,they were expecting Pakistanis to jump in war and just dump those illiterate tribal Yemenis infront of pure blooded sheikhs but we thought life of a guy from some remote villge,chak or ghout is precious and we will not fight sheikh sahib got angered.
