This THREAD is a response to criticism on Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi by some so called experts on Indian history who declare Ghaznavi a plunderer and a hater of Hindus who launched his expeditions for communal reasons.
Self-Loathing has no cure perhaps.
Anyways, lets dig in!
Before Mahmood became the king of Ghazni, a Hindu ruler Jaipal of North India had already invaded Ghazni twice. Indian historian Romila Thapar, in her book 'Somanatha' wrote that Hindu Rajas frequently attacked Arab traders based in Ghazni and Hormuz and looted their wealth.
Romila Thapar also added that the Arab traders were often looted by the looters active in the coastal areas of India. These looters were known as Bairooj. There was continuous disturbance for the Ghazni based traders in India due to these circumstances even before Mahmood.

While I firmly support government in its fight for Kashmir, Here is what the Government should have done by now. Sadly none of this hasn't been done yet.

Remember Iranian embassies throughout the world during Iran Iraq war? They used to be full of pictures, literature, banners, highlighting the atrocities of Iraq.

#Pakistan embassies have not done this yet.
Our ambassadors are busy sharing press releases only.
Pakistani embassies in at least 10 important capitals could arrange urgent #Kashmir conference by assuring massive participation of the Pakistani diaspora.

Washington, London, Berlin, Paris, Ottawa, Brussels, Rome, Oslo, Istanbul, Riyadh.

This is offensive diplomacy!

#CPEC is the backbone of #Pakistan's Grand Strategy. Enemies are keen to foment trouble in #Balochistan to sabotage the project.
A hike in terror attacks has been witnessed in the past months in Balochistan especially in areas in proximity to #Gwadar which is part of #Sabotage.

1. It causes trouble in Balochistan,
2. It decreses confidence of Shias in the state of #Pakistan and leads to anger and frustration in Gilgit Baltistan, The Critical province in #CPEC.
