The deepening Pak-Afghan divide

The closing of the Torkham border crossing and the refusal to allow Afghans not possessing relevant travel documents to enter Pakistan was always going to have multi-dimensional ramifications on the course of relations between the two countries, which can now be seen in the tensions on the border that resulted in the tragic martyrdom of a Pakistan Army major. The rationale for the Pakistani decision to limit the crossing of Afghans into Pakistan is simple: many acts of terrorism were attributed to Afghans entering Pakistan unlawfully and national interest dictated a more restrictive policy that would deny entry to those not possessing proper documents and whose identity cannot be established.

However, something that should not be ignored is that there are 235 entry-exit points along the 2,250km border, but customs and immigration procedures are applicable only at Torkham and Chaman. For someone intending to engage in acts of terrorism inside Pakistan, it will be naive to attempt to cross the border at Torkham and Chaman, and expose themselves to the risk of being caught by dozens of officials manning the border on each side. Such terrorists or their supporters would rather take any other convenient route to enter Pakistan. Secondly, facts suggest that over the last 10 years, hardly one per cent of Afghan nationals or refugees have been found involved covertly or overtly in sponsoring terror attacks in Pakistan. Most terror attacks have either been planned by terrorists inside Pakistan or by Pakistanis who have found shelter inside Afghanistan. Another important factor that we need to consider is the question of resources: do we have the manpower, space and facilities to check 10,000 visas every day in a place like Torkham, located at the entrance of the Khyber Pass where hundreds of trucks carrying goods are parked on each side with transporters seeking clearance from more than half a dozen departments?

The recent violence at the Torkham border crossing will surely create animosity and anger within people on both sides of the border. The hostility in Afghanistan has the potential to have long-term consequences for Pakistan, keeping in view the range of projects of great strategic significance, like CASA-1000 and TAPI, which may be negatively impacted if this situation persists. The fate of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, which is set to be a key for our infrastructure and energy needs, may also be indirectly impacted. There is a need for more effective border management on the Pak-Afghan border. However, considering that Islamabad has not been able to develop a positive working relationship with New Delhi and is digging trenches on its border with Iran, border tensions with Afghanistan will only allow anti-Pakistan feelings to deepen in that country. Is it in our interest to isolate ourselves internationally and promote an image of a country that cannot coexist with its neighbours?

Consider the enormous implications for Pakistan. There are about 150,000 Pakistani refugees living in the province of Khost in Afghanistan. These tribesmen were able to go across the border easily because their co-tribesmen on the other side did not object to them seeking refuge in Afghanistan when their lives were in danger as the military operation got underway in our tribal areas. There are also close to 150,000 Pakistani skilled workers living inside Afghanistan, mostly without travel documents. There are tribes on both sides divided by the Durand line. Common ethnicity is a major factor. Under a treaty signed between Afghanistan and the British Indian government in 1905, people within five miles of the border are not required to present any documents and are allowed to travel freely without any hindrance. From the Afghan point of view, that treaty is still binding on both Afghanistan and Pakistan — the successor state to British India. Sentiments against Pakistan in Afghanistan run deep for several reasons. According to a recent public opinion survey in Afghanistan, the favourability rating for Pakistan had plunged to a dismal 3.6 per cent. Should this not be a wake-up call for us?

Then there is the issue of Afghan refugees. In the wake of the arrest of some Afghan spies in Quetta, there is a crescendo of voices emanating mostly from armchair ‘analysts’ in the media calling for forcible repatriation of all refugees. The one who kicked off this debate was the Balochistan interior minister who basically said that Afghan refugees will be humiliated and kicked out of Pakistan if they don’t leave soon. Apart from the unfortunate choice of language by the minister, what he and others have not realised is that these refugees have come from areas in Afghanistan that are most insecure because of insurgency and where government institutions, like schools, roads and hospitals don’t function. Having lost their homes, the refugees have nowhere to go. Despite this, voluntary repatriation to Afghanistan happens all the time. On average, around 20,000 Afghan refugees are repatriated each month. Having lived here for over 30 years, are we going to force them to leave and generate huge anger and hatred for Pakistan? Is it fair under international law to force refugees to go back against their will? Would such a step not sow the seeds of long-term hostility towards Pakistan? Then there is the question of so-called undocumented refugees — those whom the authorities here have not been able to reach and register. Should they be penalised for the inability of our institutions to register them? Not a day passes by without innocent refugees, mostly hawkers, vendors and street peddlers who have lived here for decades, being picked up by the police, detained and humiliated with scant regard for any norms of justice or the thought that these people may be the sole bread-earners for their impoverished families.

While every country has the right to secure its borders and introduce a system to address a lax security system, it is best if that is done with mutual understanding with the other side. Too often our decision-making is predicated upon transient security concerns and there is little regard for long-term strategic interests of the country. There is a need for reappraisal on both sides before it is too late.

    The writer is correct 100%. We can not antagonize all neighbors and live happily. For a stabilized Pakistan, stability in Afghanistan is required. Bravado will not work here. More pro-active diplomacy is required. We are putting all of our eggs in one basket-China. You never know China may turn against us if their interests are threatened. Please think in cool mind. The simple truth is that we are angry because Afghanistan embraces India and Modi. We hate them.But remember, India came to this stage because of their hard work on developmental field( though they are doing both good work for Afghanistan as well as spying for India). The fact of the matter is we can not simply only remind Afghanis on how many refugees we are hosting but do more good works to help them to stabilize Afghanistan. Recommend

    According to Sartaj Aziz it is pakistan foreign policy to isolate herselves internationally and that is Pakistan national/security interest. By international laws Pakistan is expected to keep refugees till 2017 afterwards it is upto Pakistan. Pakistan cannot/shoulnot be forced to keep them beyond that.

    @saqib:
    In response to your questions one by one;
    A) Is Pakistan not the epicenter of terrorism and terrorists, the live example are, the annihilation of OSAMA and MANSOOR on Pakistani soil, both in the settled areas, closer to Pakistani garrisons.
    B) Are the these terrorists camped at the border check posts, are deeper in the big cities like Karachi, Peshawar and Quetta.

    C) There was no benevolence in the past by Pakistan, but only to protect Pakistan while keeping the fire burning on Afghan soil. Who Pakistan gave this authority in the past to give verdicts of Jihad in Afghanistan. I am confident that you are not aware of the past and do listen to the rhetoric of your leaders, like General Zia, Hameed Gul and others.

    D) Afghanistan being an independent and sovereign nation has the full right to exercise it with whom to development relationship. Pakistan should give up its past approach of strategic depth in the Afghanistan, not its backyard.

    Hope this would be understandable! Recommend

    Although some of the facts regarding our government in efficiency are agreed upon but this doesn’t justify infiltration of Afghan refugees in settled areas. Beside terrorist activities, a continuous role in street crimes by them in cities can’t be ignored. Enjoying the luxury of business and trade but denying tax return is another issues. For sake of our next generation future please support the repatriation of Afghan refugees. Please don’t creat ambiguity on directives of outside bosses. Recommend

    @Afghan

    With all due respect, Your replies to saqib’s questions are not realistic, A) As you said Pakistan is epicenter of terrorism and Osama Bin Laden was murdered in Pakistan. However, you forgot to mentioned that Taliban were strengthen in Afghanistan and they invited Osama to stay in Afghanistan, TORA BORA is not in Pakistan. If Pakistan was the epicenter then NATO Should attack Pakistan not Afghanistan, so please correct your facts.

    B) Afghanistan is terrorists hub and they don’t even think to attack kids with books in their hands. Taliban in Afghanistan attacking us are not in Pakistan, even though we doing far better than Afghanistan in every walk of life. No comparison at all..!

    C) If Millions of Afghan refugees living in Pakistan not benevolence then we should not mention it to someone who doesn’t understand the meaning of hospitality, care and kindness. Name a country on earth would give your people a living as we did and we did it as brothers. Afghanistan was never a stable country in history except few periods, name a product you made, name anyone except warriors and looters. You badly need to correct your history. We helped you in Russian invasion, It was not only Pakistan, it was west, Arabs and us who jointly helped to kick out Russia.

    D) Pakistan doesn’t care whoever you consider friend or foe, we respect your sovereignty and we expect the same. If Afghanistan wants to play in others hands, it’s her destiny, we don’t care.

    Neither GoP nor Establishment nor any writer from Pakistan is putting the cause behind the tension in right perspective. The issue is whether Durand Line at all is considered as Border by Afghanistan? The answer is big NO.

    The Durand Line was drawn under a treaty between British and Afghan, which was valid only for 100 years. This was a working area line to avoid skirmished in tribal area. This treaty had expired in 1993 and Afghanistan is re-claiming its Pushtoon territory as in case of China claimed Hongkong. Further, if Pakistan claims Durand Line as Border between Pakistan and Afghanistan, then on what basis it can reject MacMohan Line and Johnsons Line between India (J&K/ Arunanchal Pradesh) and China? And on what basis it ceded Aksai Chin to China?

    Please make the ground realities clear to the citizenry. Recommend

    Thanks Mr Rustom for writing the facts.The Closing of Torkham border by Pakistan does not have any thing to do with infiltration of terrorists. The whole world knows where Terrorists are hiding.By doing so Pakistan tried not only to divert the international community attention from recent event of killing of Mansoor on its soil but also to express its frustration over Chahahar (although Afghanistan had requested Pakistan repeatedly for a road link to India but was denied depriving itself from the transit income between India,and Afghanistan and central Asia).One thing that Mr Rustom shah did not mention is the adverse effect of closed torkham on the economy of people, particular Peshawar.In short,I would say that Pakistan has adopted a policy of not only making the Afghans of Afghanistan enemies but also alienating the local Pashtuns too by depriving them of their basic human rights e.g keeping FATA under FCR for a particular purpose, snatching their rights in CPEC by diverting main CPEC to through Punjab, and the most worst is the blowing of roofs of common people houses in S. Waziristan and N. waziristan in order to be monitored from the air that no terrorists are hiding and then telling the displaced people to go back your homes, the area is cleared of terrorists.Recommend

Afghans and Pakistanis are brothers and neighbors, we need to think about the similarities with we have. we are Muslims, we are brothers, we are neighbors, we have same culture, same tradition, same history and same future. lets talk about cooperation and friendship, Pakistan need to change its afghan policy, Pakistan need to help Afghanistan because we are their brothers, the current condition will create many problems for both afghan and Pakistani nations, we both will be the losers, Pakistan can invest in Afghanistan in many sectors, Pakistan can find very short way to central Asia through Afghanistan, there are many opportunities, lets start a new phase of cooperation and friendship, we must forgot the past, we are not enemies we are brothers, we must need to change our minds, we don’t understand each other, we need to realize each other views, afghans will never allowed any one to use their land against Pakistan and we want the same from our Pakistani brothers. The current situation will create many problems for Afghanistan and Pakistan and for the brother nations , we are sad from Pakistan because we know Pakistanis as our brothers , we have many expectations from our Pakistanis brothers ,we know that brothers must have many expectations from their brothers, and brothers must help each other, it wont be fair for a brother to create for problems for his brother, at the same time all the countries in the world and in the region expand their cooperation with each other but we are just creating problems for each other so must know that its not fair, not good and will waste our time and resources.Recommend

    It is a brilliant article that reflects the prevailing ground reality. In spite existence of many common interests and needs of both nations Afghanistan and Pakistan for having of very friendly relation, why Pakistan does loss its image and diplomacy in Afghanistan and region. Yes, we all admit that still huge numbers of Afghans refugees are enjoying great hospitality of Pakistani, but it’s not enough argument to establish a perfect relation which results on boosting of economy between two countries. Having of a secure and peaceful Afghanistan is 100% needed for the economic development and stability in Pakistan. However, geographically and culturally India is a hard choice for Afghanistan being partner to build our country, but we are hardly pushed toward it because of your mistake and miscalculation. There is very simple differences and misunderstanding between the two governments to settle them through meaningful negotiation and using of current generation approach, but it seems intentionally not addressed by Pakistan, which will have long term negative consequences for both side of borders. We hope one day to have a very interactive and peaceful region.Recommend

    Mr. Muhmand used fancy words and tried to portray a dangerous pictures interms of the consequences for Pakistan.
    Yes Pakistan did not registered refugees and yes we did not implement border management system during the past 30 or so years but we are doing it now. These are sops around the world in almost every country. Why is Mr. Muhmand not in favour of Pakistan opting something which we should have enforced years ago?
    Mr. Muhmand expects Pakistan to be all sugar when we are only getting hatred from the other side.
    What wrong did Pakistan do to Afghanistan in 1947 when they did not recognise us as a country and were one of the last ones to do so when they did?
    I agree with minister from balochistan that refugees must go back now. If Afghanistan can train an Army, buy weapons, run media etc against Pakistan they can also provide education, health and security etc to the afghan refugees that InshAllah are soon going to join them.in AfghanistanRecommend

    The emotional aspects should be calm down but with out any doubt Pakistan needs to build border at a fast pace and effective border management is compulsory with out any apology .

    The author has discussed the problem in depth and realistically. Pakistan is trying to punish the Afghans for following an independent foreign policy but in the process also causing harm to its own people. The Pak-Afghan divide is bound to get even bigger each passing day and lead to more military clashes which has never happened in the past. Pakistan unwittingly may open another front on its Western border which will undermine all the gains made in the recent operation. The faulty foreign policy followed by Pakistan of using so-called assets against neighbors and asserting Afghanistan to severe ties with India will prove to be totally counter-productive. US has already admonished Pakistan on the F-16 issue along with reduction of financial aid and change in regime next year may lead to slapping of sanctions and stoppage of international aid to Pakistan. The self-destructing foreign policy needs to reviewed on priority if Pakistan wants to avoid catastrophy. Recommend
