Pakistan is economically a bankrupt country and completely dependent on Chinese help. So it cannot say anything against China. Moreover, Pakistan has been using China against our national interests since the very beginning of our liberation war. Delhi took full advantage of that and made us dependent on the powerful circles at the helm of religious fanaticism. India was not a secular country since its inception. Under the pressure of bd and Bengal factors, it fomally recognized secularism nominally and constitutionally in 1976 and kept Nepal a Hindu state. Under the influence of Chinese factors now Nepal is no more a satellite state of India. Chinese investment in pakistan and Nepal is disproportionate high in compare to the sizes of their economies. India took similar type of stretegy in regard to us. India become economic competitor of china in a number of African and Arabian countries. India failed in Africa, but won in the Arab world as pakistan failed everywhere including Afghanistan. At present Chinese ambitions in the muslim world including bd are too high and we might be under debt trap of Chinese soft loans. China brought india in the global and muslim political battle grounds in the backdrop of the rise of religious fanaticism in Delhi.Muslims are no more that severely persecuted in the European and American continents. That made both china and India surprised. Neither Delhi nor Beijing believe that the rise or revitalization of Islamic civilizational values are real and would ultimately save many nations from total moral and intellectual decadence of Muslim peoples, who would constititre half of the entire human race. Competition between India and China would make Delhi based fanatical circles exhusted quickly. Many more muslim countries will be in complete disarry and shambles in the face of preemptive attacks and military aggression of big powers. Somalian syndrome might be a destiny for more Muslim countries like Iraq, Lebanon, Lybia, Algeria, Yemen, Egypt, Syria and many Indian states. Bengali nation could save our subcontinent from a quick disintegration similar to that of English or Russian imperial states. Future fight over water and energy resources might make us all bankrupt soon like pakistan or India. That is why millions of Arakani and Indian Muslims would be pushed to bd and Bengali territories, which are already in the paths of environmental disasters with dramatic climate changes. By pushing us economic and environmental disasters, Delhi would gain nothing but similar Soviet misfortunes for many Indian states, which are no more willing to keep themselves in a Nepalese situation. Do you think that we would be an exception to the rule?
