Iran Displays Fake Solidarity with the Kashmiris, While Throwing Weight Behind Shiite Stalwarts

After tensions broke out between India and Pakistan over the first’s revocation of the constitutional portion granting special status to the Muslim-majority Kashmir, there were some moves by the Iranian regime at the official and popular levels in a veneer of solidarity with the oppressed people in Kashmir.

The regime claims that it is opposed to any oppression that could be inflicted on the people in Kashmir. But commentators dispute this claim, citing Iran’s growing relations with India, the Kashmiris’ supposed oppressor. This controversial stance pushed me to look deep in the history of relations between India, Pakistan, and Iran in order to understand exactly who is with who.

Display of Solidarity  

On August 7, 2019, Iran called on India and Pakistan to pursue dialogue over the disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said Iran “is closely monitoring the Indian government’s recent decisions on Jammu and Kashmir, and is carefully listening to the explanations provided by the Indian and Pakistani officials for the recent developments, according to Press TV.

“Iran expects India and Pakistan, as its regional friends and partners, to take effective steps to serve the interests of people of the region by adopting peaceful approaches and dialogue,” he said in statements carried by Tasnim news agency.

At the unofficial level, there had been some moves that expressed Iran’s rejection and resentment at the Indian move.

Iranian students held a rally in Tehran to denounce India’s recent decision to scrap a constitutional provision that granted special status to the Muslim-majority New Delhi-controlled Kashmir.

The protest rally took place in front of the Indian Embassy in Tehran on Thursday.

Holding up placards and chanting slogans, the protesters called on the international community to address the plight of ‘Kashmiri Muslims’, who have felt the brunt of Indo-Pakistan hostilities for three decades, according to reports on Iranian media platforms.

In order to identify the Iranian position on Kashmir, we should have a look at Iran’s relations with India, and compare them to its ties with Pakistan.

Need Each Other

There are several factors governing the relationship between Iran and India. After all, New Delhi is home to the fourth-biggest Shiite minority in the world.

Thus, India pulls on the sectarian heartstrings via exploiting the Sunni-Shiite rivalry. It aims to curb Pakistan’s influence in international Islamic forums. Also, Iran’s geopolitical position is significant for India, as it can counteract China’s increasing presence throughout Asia and boost India’s regional influence.

This is in addition to Iran’s massive oil and gas resources, which could help India meet its domestic energy needs. India was among the eight oil buyers exempted by the US for six months from the sanctions on Iran.

To Iran, India is a significant partner for several reasons. The two sides share historic, cultural and ethnic ties.

In the aftermath of the New Delhi Declaration in 2003, Iran and India referred to each other as “strategic partners” and embarked on joint military exercises

India’s foreign policy is also congruent with that of Iran. The two countries are opposed to U.S. unilateralism and a unipolar world.

India Over Pakistan

Unlike India, Iran’s relations with Pakistan were not that so close. In the late 1940s, they established their relations. In the beginning, Iran was a friend and brother. There was significant bilateral cooperation in cultural, economic and security aspects. For example, Iran provided moral and material support to Pakistan in its 1965 and 1971 wars against India.

But the two countries’ relations strained on account of several factors, including Pakistan’s close ties with the Gulf Arab states, such as Saudi Arabia in the 1980s and the War on Terrorism launched by the US. The stronger Pakistan had ties with Saudi Arabia and the US became, the weaker it had ties with Iran.

The Iranian regime and its media outlets always looked at Pakistan as one of the US proxies in the region.

Despite the soft rhetoric used in the two countries’ media outlets and statements, there have been skirmishes along the borders, mutual accusations of cross-border terrorism, an Iranian general threatening Pakistan with a surgical strike, and an Iranian drone being shot down in Pakistan.

Therefore, the overall assessment of Iran’s relations with both India and Pakistan tips the scale in favor of India.

Why Kashmir?

Back to Iran’s position on the crisis in Jammu and Kashmir, we find that Iran’s line of policy on this issue is different given its cordial ties with India, which controls the biggest part of the disputed region.

On more than one occasion, Iran voiced its support for Kashmir. In November 2010, on the occasion of Eid Al-Adha, he made a passionate appeal to the Muslim community to support the “struggle” in Kashmir and put Kashmir in the same category as Afghanistan and Palestine. The supreme leader spoke during one of his speeches of “the many wounds inflicted on the body of the Muslim world” and urged the Islamic Nation to “express its disdain for the oppressors”. He cited what is happening in Bahrain, Yemen, and Kashmir.”

He said the Muslim world should “openly support” people in these countries.

One week later, the supreme leader mentioned Kashmir again, as he was addressing an important meeting of top judiciary officials in Tehran.

These statements, of course, are contradictory to the record of relations between Iran and the one causing the plight of those people: India.

With a deep look at the geopolitical realities inside Kashmir, we could easily decode this mystery.

There are 1.4 million Shia Muslims who make up 15 percent of the entire population of Indian-administered Kashmir. They are mostly concentrated in the Budgam district of Central Kashmir, parts of Srinagar and Kargil. As the home to the biggest Shiite community on the planet, Iran considers itself a guardian over all the Shiites across the world. Therefore, it is targeting hundreds of thousands of Shiite populations in the disputed region.

Ideology is the Decoder

Therefore, the prime reason for Iran’s support for Kashmiris is ideology. It is the same reason which brought it closer to the Indians, who oppress them. Iran supports the Shiite Kashmiris, not all the Kashmiris, and India suppresses only the Sunni Kashmiris, using the Shiites as a shield against what it calls Sunni extremism spilling over from neighboring Pakistan. Iran never defends an oppressed people. On the contrary, its militias in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Lebanon are cold-bloodedly massacring those people ‘on ideological grounds’.

What about the Kashmir Genocide ?

The Ruling political dispensation of India (Hindoosthan) is a front of the RSS (a quasi wanna be Nazi party).The RSS in its documented history and intellectual posits has admired and co-opted and co-owned Hitler – not merely as a Role Model – but as a Kalki Avatar – or an Avatar of Vishnoo – the Hindoo God !

The SS part of the RSS is a lift from the Nazi SS and the “R” stands for “Rats”

The RSS is infested by the vermins of the Brahmin/Bania/Kayastha triad – which represent the priestly and trading classes of Hindoosthan who never fought a war for their nation – but incited the same and also carried out the largest unknown genocide in History – that of the Buddhists

The Bhagwad Gita JUSTIFIES genocide, w/o remorse,guilt and WITH DIVINE SANCTION.The Indian Military and Para Military,is a race of criminal mercenaries called Kshatriyas – who were the offspring of rapes by the Huns,Mongols,Sakas, Scythians,Persians, Parthinians,Greeks 1500-2000 years ago.They were discarded by their races and interbred and were treated as outcastes for centuries – until the Brahmins co-opted them as criminal mass murderers (around 1000 years ago) – and who are now in Kashmir !

Nazis are on record JUSTIFYING their actions based on the thesis of the Bhagwad Gita explained in this note.

History Records that the Nazis were ALSO inspired by the Gita, per se

https://dindooohindoo.page.tl/Nazis-and-Gita.htm

Why the “Nazis and Hitler and Himmler”, love the Gita

“Dindoo Hindoo Bindoo Gandoos” consider “Hitler to be a Vishnoo Avatar”

When Krishna the Bhagvat was fed up rying to explain to “Arjuna the – why he “needed to exterminate his foes” – this was the “last attempt” in the 18th Chapter of the Gita – the logic is as under :

Lumen Naturale 1 – There are “5 precedents to sense-perception and action”

मूल श्लोकः
शरीरवाङ्मनोभिर्यत्कर्म प्रारभते नरः।
न्याय्यं वा विपरीतं वा पञ्चैते तस्य हेतवः।।18.15।।

18.14 The locus as also the agent, the different kinds of organs, the many and distinct activities, and, the “divine is here the fifth”.

Lumen Naturale 2 – There “5 are causes of all action” and are “independent of the mind and body dualism” of Descartes and “also the Soul “!

मूल श्लोकः
यस्य नाहंकृतो भावो बुद्धिर्यस्य न लिप्यते।
हत्वापि स इमाँल्लोकान्न हन्ति न निबध्यते।।18.17।।

18.15 For whatever action a man undertakes by his body, speech and mind, whether right or wrong,i.e., enjoined or forbidden by the Sastras, “the following five”, are its causes:

Lumen Naturale 3 – Hence,you can “kill,murder and rape” – provided it is done with “no ego and no feelings “- for it is the “Act of the Divine” ! Just like the Nazis ! “Heil Krishna,the Bhagwat “!

मूल श्लोकः
अधिष्ठानं तथा कर्ता करणं च पृथग्विधम्।
विविधाश्च पृथक्चेष्टा दैवं चैवात्र पञ्चमम्।।18.14।।

18.17 He who has not the “feeling of egoism”, whose intellect is not tainted, he does not kill, nor does he become bound-“even by killing these creatures” !

dindooohindoo

Rajnath Singh says that Hindooosthan will rescind its commitment to NFU.

https://www.livemint.com/news/india/rajnath-singh-sparks-debate-on-no-first-use-nuclear-doctrine-1565978545173.html

1st these Hindoos alomgwith Mossad and CIA bombed Pakistani Military institutions and bases to conince the world about the
rogue nukes theory.When all that failed – id.est.,the P-Nukes are safe in Pakistani hands – these Hindoos have dropped out of NFU.

Is that a surprise ?

Nein ! The word Hindoo means liar,cheater and thief !

https://dindooohindoo.page.tl/Y-Educate-Cheats.htm

The wisdom of the “children of Cyrus,Darius and Xerxes”,encapsulates the “transcendence of Human thought”, the “Deuterosis of the Dindoo”, as under:

A “Persian dictionary”,titled “Lughet-e-Kishwari”,published in Lucknow in 1964,gives the meaning of the word Hindu as “chore [thief], dakoo [dacoit],
raahzan [waylayer], and ghulam [slave].

The white man needs to understand the psyche of the Hindooo !

Their Hero is a man called Rama,who was called an impotent gay pansy,by his wife Seeta !

This man Rama who Hindoos consider as a God used an army of apes to make a bridge to Lanka which took 12 years to make !
(Rama did not use Hindos or Humans)

This man Rama,used an army of millions of apes to rescue his wife from Lanka (Rama did not use Hindos or Humans) !

This man Rama,whose wife was airlifted by a Lankan King and taken to Lanka in a few minutes – could not fly to Lanka (although he was a God)
for 12 years !

This man Rama,could not make a ship for 12 years (when his wife was in the custody of a Lanka King) to transport his army of apes and rescue his
wife !

The Hindoos are a race of cowards,and it is cowards which use Nukes as a 1st use option.

These Hindoos are a threat to the world !

The UN and G-7 have to control these apes !
