At some point in time, we will have to introspect how and why a tiny and inconsequential country could sway opinion of liberals/ leftists and narrative drivers in India and amongst westerners for so long and continues to do so even today.....
Let us first analyse bunch who has driven/ supported or sympathise with the narrative of Pakistan; you can actually segregate them into-
1) Indian elite (or descendants of brown Sahibs)
2) those suffering fm Cousin syndrome
3) Wannabe elites (journos, columnists, Professors etc)
First are Indian elite- sons & grandsons of erstwhile brown sahibs; they go to the legacy schools/universities- same as their parents/ grandparents. Their worldview is still shaped by their mindset passed on from generations with a notion that they r born to lead Indians.

It never easy to estimate the depth or extent of damage done by military rule. It's corrosions never go away. It's like we're in a civic #StockholmSyndrome - folks who get trampled by military abuses & misadventure often have an infinitely elastic capacity to ask for more abuse
It's terribly unfortunate that ppl who claim to be "constitutional" lawyers will justify soldiers ransacking a newspaper house, abducting journalists & confiscating computers, none of that procured with a court order or search warrant - basic niceties of rule-constrained process
The constitutional guarantee of free speech allows for limitation but that can only be done "by law reasonably justifiable in a democracy". Soldiers are not law unto themselves & it's not reasonably justifiable in a democracy for soldiers to go abducting ppl or ransacking media
